    I agree, Sesh. Half-assed measures, taken in the name of holy economic growth, no matter how much harm it may cause to some people.

    I'm in a doctor's waiting room just now because I have fever and feel tired and like black and blue - but still can smell.
    If I caught the virus, no doubt it was at work. But I don't think it is covid though, just classic flu.
    I have to make sure.

      A staffer at our high school tested positive. This has created a whole shitstorm in the village. I don't have kids so there is no effect on me.

          With the current increases reported around the world... I've come to the conclusion that the medical, scientific and epidemiologist experts still don't have definitive answers to competently advise... policy and decision makers aren't making the best choices...

          Appears the humans don't have a handle on this... not sure what's up with the Scandinavian countries. Are they really that low of infection rates or are they not testing at the same rates other developed countries are... or just damn lucky..?

            A funny parody on the policy and decision making process.

              Funny video...

              That guy who made it is a spittin image of an old buddy of mine Mike... who back in 78 lost control of his Harley doing about 80 MPH and crashed through a dental office. He and the bike passed through 2 exterior walls and the lobby. He lived to tell about it...

              After 2 years in the hospital and massive reconstructive surgeries, I picked him and we were sitting in my car on the cliffs of Capitola, California catching up and a cop checks on us to see if we were partying, which we weren't. Ran our ID's and arrested my buddy for a failure to appear warrant from his wreck 2 years ago. He still had a full cast on his leg and we showed the cops his discharge paper work from the hospital... a 2 inch thick folder's worth. They had to call an ambulance to take him to the jail because they couldn't fit him and his full leg cast into the police car. I followed them and bailed him out 30 minutes later...

                I get that there is due process and legal procedures, and it's an oversimplification to say this, but it's asinine the cops basically arrested him to shake down for bail money.

                    I've talked to people that live there and there are a few reasons. Scandinavians are real sticklers for rules, if the government tells them to do something they really fucking do it. It's to do with social contracts and so on, the government helps them and they help their government.

                    Secondly Scandinavians don't hang around in bars that much. Thirdly they already maintain more social distance at normal times, they aren't as fat, they have fewer comorbidities and excellent government healthcare.

                    All that said, they aren't that happy with the way things worked out.

                    HERD IMMUNITY CANNOT WORK WITH THIS VIRUS.

                    It is unachievable because you don't get enough antibodies.

                      Read an article that Sweden is considering localized lockdowns as their infection rates are up 170+% and are experiencing one of the highest death rates per capita in the world.

                      Maybe they were just lucky and it ran out rather than they had an effective approach...

                        I'm half-Swedish and have visited maybe 10 times. I agree with much of your post...but I will say that my cousins spend a lot of time drinking in Swedish bars.

                                Dolly Parton helped fund COVID 19 vaccine??

                                yahoo.com
                                Dolly Parton's $1M donation helped fund promising COVID-19 vaccine: 'I just wanted it to do good'
                                Taryn Ryder·Writer, Yahoo Entertainment

                                Dolly Parton really can do it all. She can sing. She can act. She can… “cure” coronavirus?

                                OK, not really, as there’s no known cure for COVID-19, but Parton fans are having a lot of fun applauding the country icon for her philanthropic work that might have a big impact on the pandemic.



                                This week, Moderna announced early results show its COVID-19 vaccine is 94.5 percent effective at preventing infection. A report published in the New England Journal of Medicine credits the “Dolly Parton Covid-19 Research Fund (Vanderbilt University Medical Center)” as a supporter, plus many other groups.

                                Fact-checking this was worth it just to see @DollyParton in the acknowledgments of a @NEJM article. And I thought I couldn’t love her more. https://t.co/S3njHEFcGT pic.twitter.com/WcrFIrHp67

                                — Dr. Meade Krosby (@MeadeKrosby) November 17, 2020
                                Parton became a trending topic Tuesday for her role in Moderna’s success, which she addressed on the Today show.

                                “Yeah! That’s what I understand this morning,” Parton shared. “I’m just happy that anything I do can help somebody else. When I donated the money to the Covid fund, I just wanted it to do good, and evidently, it is. Let’s just hope we find a cure real soon.”

                                In April, Parton announced she was donating $1 million to Vanderbilt towards COVID-19 research.

                                “My longtime friend Dr Naji Abumrad, who’s been involved in research at Vanderbilt for many years, informed me that they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure,” she wrote. “I am making a donation of $1 million to Vanderbilt towards that research and to encourage people that can afford it to make donations.”

                                Twitter is reveling in Parton’s connection to the promising vaccine.

                                Dolly Parton donated $1 million to Vanderbilt for vaccine research.

                                Vanderbilt researchers were involved in the Moderna trials.

                                Ergo, Dolly Parton helped cure COVID.

                                Dolly Parton can cure COVID but COVID could never write ‘Jolene’ and ‘I Will Always Love You’ in the same day!!!

                                Shakespeare may have written King Lear during the plague, but Dolly Parton funded a covid vaccine, dropped a Christmas album and a Christmas special.
