Quite right. There's a lot of idiots out there. Given the loss of life and long term disability and health problems this causes, together with the sacrifices people have made, I get very angry with them.

There's flare ups everywhere here-North of England, South Wales (partly caused by a single group outing of friends to the North of England), bits of Scotland.

It's shaping up to be a fun winter.

I retired at the end of July-over a year late. The NHS asked me to come back again. I start again next week.

Follow up:  some Green Bay area hospitals are wait-listing patients or transferring them.  https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/2020/09/30/wisconsin-hospitals-wait-list-patients-covid-19-surge-coronavirus-green-bay-fox-valley-wausau/3578202001/

This bodes ill for the near future.  Not to be political, but Trump plans a rally in Green Bay this Saturday.  Looks to me like a massive spreading event unless they hold this rally differently than past rallies.

We went through that earlier this year.  The good news is that people in the area will get real serious about mask wearing and social distancing afterwards and rates will drop and probably stay low.  The sad reality is folks in unaffected areas don’t learn from other people’s experience.

It was six months ago my friend Ricky got sick.  I've spoken of his difficulties and what cover has done to this big, strong, vigorous man.

Here is a video his wife posted on Facebook today:

The hospitals in Wisconsin are overloaded enough for the field hospital built inside a state fair building to be opened for use:  https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/2020/10/15/milwaukees-state-fair-park-field-hospital-opens-covid-19-patients-what-to-know/3664774001/

My take is that unnecessary riding in Wisconsin should be avoided.  We don't think we're gonna crash, but crashes still happen.  The ERs should still be open.  However, it might be tight if an extended stay is needed.

Well, it looks like the social experiment called "Sturgis" is going to feed the scientific community for a while...

Going to Sturgis and being up close and personal with all your friends was not smart.  But, there will be lack of scientific data to know just how much the rally contributed to the spread.  There were other factors such as school openings and other such things which would also contribute to the increase in numbers. 

In a few years, we may be able to look back and see Sweden may have got it right, for the most part.  Recently, there are material increases in new cases across the U.S., U.K., Spain, France, and other countries (looking at a per-capita basis). 

Sheri and I take care of her 80 YO mother, who is at risk for more reasons than just her age. We've been very good by doing grocery pick up, not eating out, not going to Church, etc., and wearing masks when we do go out.  We are both fortunate to have job which accommodate working from home.  So, for the most part, we have been major homebodies since March of this year.  But, we're both getting fatigued with the whole thing.  And, based on the newest data, we're not alone.

Parts of the North of England, Scotland and some counties in Wales are in lockdown again now. There's calls for a 2 week national lockdown, which is sorely needed but we have an idjut government which has seriously mishandled this (wales has done pretty well) and is more interested in popularity.

We're in partial lockdown. Social distancing or wear a mask.
Restaurants, bars, gyms are closed.
Private gatherings are banned.
Public assembly banned but demonstration allowed.  :crazy:
Schools are open.
Shops and shopping malls are open.
Lots of folks work from home, in town traffic is light.
The most important part, unessential travel is frowned upon but riding is OK.  :bigok:

we are seeing several cities in the state looking at partial or total shutdowns due to the rise in cases. Locally no shutdowns, but masks are required in almost all businesses and most businesses are still limiting or banning business travel/meetings.
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.

Any thoughts on this video?

It’s about the plan for a “global reset.”  Most concerning is the proposal for total debt elimination in exchange for a surrendering of ALL property rights.

Well, it had to happen sometime.

Two phone conversations and now COVID has hit my fam twice.  An adult nephew from North Dakota works in healthcare and caught it, and possibly gave it to his wife and child.  And a teen nephew who lives here was exposed and now he and his fam need to quarantine--his mom works in healthcare at an old age facility, so she's not able to work for the time being (his dad can work remotely).

Edit: I was curious about back home, and checked the ND news for hospital bed availability.  As expected, there's a shortage:  https://www.kxnet.com/news/local-news/32-icu-beds-241-non-icu-beds-available-in-nd-as-of-october-13/.  I worked with hospital regulators, and knew we ran thin, and the possibility of an epidemic overwhelming resources was generally understood to be a reasonable assumption.

It’s strange, I now know of over a dozen people who have it or have had it. A couple seriously high risk, old, obese, other health issues.  So far all have recovered completely.  But the odds are catching up I’m sure.

Working in an organisation in the UK's NHS, over 60 of our staff have had it. 6 nurses and 1 pharmacist have died. They were all black African, except for the pharmacist, who was Indian. Age range 32-52, no underlying conditions. White people don't seem to be as at much risk. Having said that, a friend's father died of it-he was white and 62.

My wife (ICU nurse). Thinks there is a blood component.  One of her travel nurse friends worked in New York at their peak and she claimed a majority of the really sick were of a specific blood types or RH factor?   It then in other places it was different.  The majority of the hospital admits here are Native American, so maybe race is a factor?

https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2020283

A recent research paper in the New England Journal of Medicine. It confirms other data that people with Blood type A may have an increased probability of an extreme event when infected with SARS-CoV-2 (e.g. acute respiratory attack). People with Blood type O seem to have the least probability. But there are other factors, perhaps many. This paper talks about another locus:

Quote
On chromosome 3p21.31, the peak association signal covered a cluster of six genes (SLC6A20, LZTFL1, CCR9, FYCO1, CXCR6, and XCR1), several of which have functions that are potentially relevant to Covid-19. A causative gene cannot be reliably implicated by the present data. One candidate is SLC6A20, which encodes the sodium–imino acid (proline) transporter 1 (SIT1) and which functionally interacts with angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, the SARS-CoV-2 cell-surface receptor.28,29 However, the locus also contains genes encoding chemokine receptors, including the CC motif chemokine receptor 9 (CCR9) and the C-X-C motif chemokine receptor 6 (CXCR6), the latter of which regulates the specific location of lung-resident memory CD8 T cells throughout the sustained immune response to airway pathogens, including influenza viruses.30 Flanking genes (e.g., CCR1 and CCR2) also have relevant functions,31 and further studies will be needed to delineate the functional consequences of detected associations.

Sorry for the jargon, but basically this is a 'locus of interest' (much like a 'person of interest' in a criminal investigation).
