On a speck of dust
Correctamundo. And they have 2x or 3x fold increased the testing #s.
AND
you can go and get tested just as a " walk in " or really...it is " drive through "
no symptoms, no age requirements, nothing. You gotta pulse....you get a test.
When as before, it was, you hadda have temp, be age 65 or older, etc etc
and even 1st come first serve and we close at 3 kind of stuff just to be " eligible " to get a test.
FURTHER....glad we are chatting about this...
You can get a " stay at home for 14 days " free paid pass from work if you test positive and you gotta stay home from work.
Tests are " free " so you see where I am going here...
People ( couple of our apprentices ) are going to get the test and then sitting for 3 days for the results...that is paid also...
for all manner of whimp ass so called symptoms...
Just saying
Those taking advantage of the paid days off are setting themselves up for extinction.

Down the rabbit hole
I'm scheduled to get the anti-body test in July. I was coughing in late Jan, early Feb and had a wheeze in my lungs that wouldn't go away. The doctor said, he didn't know what it was, but he could tell my lungs were inflamed, he just didn't know why. So he put me on an inhaler for a month. "Let's try this" he said. And we did, and about 3 weeks later it cleared up. So covid? No covid? Don't know but the test is free, so I'll finally find out. I'll post the results here.

One of my older sisters has been in a nursing home over a year as a dialysis patient courtesy of the US medical system, she got covid twice or tested positive twice and then cleared. A long time ago I started getting her a lot of high quality vitamins, c, a multi, Coq10, emergen-c packets, etc.. She said the fear was terrible with people testing positive.

There are much worse things to get like stds and actual physical injury, economic hardship, homelessness and joblessness. This covid thing is a coward's dream so they don't have to go out much.

Krag brought up a real good point in that persons commentary,

was thinking about that a bit,

and when you look at it, stand back and look at it,
everything they have been doing for years is:

-you need to vote
-you can make a change
-you should apply for this
-you are x color
-you are entitled to y
-we can help you
-we are doing this for you

in other words, they have been seriously pushing this 'me' narrative rather than community or country,
completely forcing people over time to think of only their interests first

when I beat on that guy earlier, this is what I was alluding to,
it isn't what is best for any one particular person, but what is best for a functioning society as a whole,

JFK seems to be the last one to actually verbalize a strong community, country,
and of course we know what happened to him

the guy above was looking at things in terms of what we must all do for him,
ohh sure it is couched in 'we should all have', but let's be real here, he was speaking of his interests, of his experience, etc.

now I too have paid thousands in med bills just this year, but you don't hear me yammering on about communist med care

sure I agree our system sucks, but that is not going to be fixed by changing it to communist health care

point is, our opinions and personal experiences are not what is good for all in many cases,

to me, we have to appreciate what freedom really means, the good and the bad side of true freedom

Ok, u cheezers redeemed urselfs on Hannity yesterday. Big Time.

Donald Trump did an interview with Hannity standing next to two of the most bad ass Navy cruisers I ever saw being built in Marinette, Wi.

Thats the Wisconsin I remember. Less talk/ more action. Soon as we set up the Hayward Agreement we can have our own Navy.cool:

So, I will give ya a nigger pass for allowing that Senator to get beat up in front of the State Capitol. Turns out he was a gay/Democrat anyway.

That actually was a win/win for Wisconsin. My bad. (Nothing against gays / just dont want them in a real fight/ they can help decorate the new white house though)

they have changed the narrative a touch,

saying a big increase is being recognized,
that places requiring masks are going down,
and places that are optional are rising

texas has supposedly put its opening strategy on hold

fyi

It isn't that hard to be responsible in our own lives and stay healthy; diet, exercise, mental attitudes, gratitude to God; and then you have work and all the economic realities of life. I've never been a believe of the sick care system as it tends to be for those who have chosen to rely on doctors and not find the solutions to their health through doing the right thing. My father was raised in a Christian Science tradition believing that many problems are mind over matter, later he was more mainstream in his Christian beliefs but he had a pack a day plus smoking habit through his life.

By saying my sister is a dialysis patient "courtesy" of the US medical system I meant that she always followed the docs and the meds they recommended which ruined her kidneys and now has to do dialysis. Nursing homes are generally not well run because they over-prescribe meds and are afraid of lawsuits so treat the patients like helpless babies. Not a fate I ever want to fall into.

As for "Mike" and his America bashing, he has been extremely rude and disrespectful of America's many good people. A couple generations ago we'd have "the boys" work him over, but that wouldn't change him.

Have you been in public? How many people have you seen wear a mask covering nose & mouth? How many are home made? How many are wearing bandanas?

'Church' was hijacked by Satan a long time ago. The Vatican, hell, religion in general has been turned into a black hole of degeneracy, greed and power. One doesn't need a Sunday suit, a stone building or a pedophile standing on an alter to have a spiritual relationship.

Face Masks

"we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks"


"reported no major difference in the risk for laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infection in the control or mask group"

"the face mask group was not significant in either studies"

"None of the household studies reported a significant reduction in secondary laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the face mask group"

"Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza."

"Proper use of face masks is essential because improper use might increase the risk for transmission"

People have died who were long overdue as a result of bad choices and a decrepit sick care system. If you have not invested in your health through avoiding junk foods and other damaging inputs, and do not exercise, what should one expect? If you don't use it you lose it, your health, good genetics and sacrifices of parents and other generations and the larger society. Who should care when people are medicated to death if they will not fight that? https://www.courant.com/coronavirus...0200628-5pqpcj72n5guxk4zjvdkbl6juq-story.html

Texas is double testing single patients for Covid and counting them as 2 positive results as well as counting HEALTHY people with an immunity to Covid in the new count numbers. FAKE STATS!



https://www.fox4news.com/news/report-texas-counted-antibody-testing-among-total-results

Also read that Hospitalized Covid patients are tested daily and every positive test is counted separately. Dont have a source unfortunately. Just social media gossip.

Yeah, I suppose at some level they are " obligated " to inform...or they will also be hung out to dry by
the blamers.
But darn it man.
"Weigh and consider "...proceed accordingly...
I think though, that more folks than we realize are just saying " stuff it "

England also



Tens of thousands of coronavirus tests have been double-counted, officials admit




Two samples taken from the same patient are being recorded as two separate tests in the Government's official figures







Tens of thousands of Covid-19 tests have been double-counted in the Government’s official tally, public health officials have admitted.



Diagnostic tests which involve taking saliva and nasal samples from the same patient are being counted as two tests, not one.



The Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England each confirmed the double-counting.



This inflates the daily reported diagnostic test numbers by over 20 per cent, with that proportion being much higher earlier on in the crisis before home test kits were added to the daily totals.



Almost 350,000 more tests have been reported in Government data than people tested since the start of the pandemic.



The discrepancy is in large part explained by the practice of counting salvia and nasal samples for the same individual twice.



Public Health England oversee the testing of patients who are seriously ill in hospital, as well as the most critical key workers.



The test involves a swab from the mouth and nose as well as a sample of saliva. Although both of these are taken from the same patient, they are counted twice by the Government in its daily data.







It is not the first time the Government has been caught massaging the testing data. It was accused last month of including thousands of home tests which had been posted but not completed in a bid to reach its target of 100,000 tests.



Jon Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, said: “Ministers have already received an embarrassing slap on the wrists for their dodgy spin on testing figures. It seems they haven’t learnt their lesson. We need absolute transparency in the presentation of these figures”.



The Government announced at the beginning of May that it would be extending its target from 100,000 tests per day to 200,000 tests per day. But so far it has only hit the 100,000 target nine times in the 20 days since its introduction.



Global health experts said the Government should stop fixating on its arbitrary targets and instead focus on making testing work to drive down Covid-19 infections in the UK.
