I didn't know there were different versions.  Good to know they're only garbage here in America.  Is there a different Fox News too?

I know I have news from the BBC and other countries too on my cable. I don't usually watch them. The world news usually tells us what's going on and online too.

Sometimes I don't watch anything. It's just too much.

What the fuck do they know? If I'm looking for advice from a rock band on how viruses are transmitted I will ask Queen thank you very much.

The mother of my aunt just died from covid19 in the Netherlands. No funeral and she can't go there. This situation is so fucked up.

Try watching Fox News every now and then.  It'll make you feel better.

The casinos reopening downtown Detroit have been a big deal for my friends and I. 

Evwn if we're not spending a ton of money, it's just a fun environment out in public that we're used to. 

The cleaning crews are constantly wiping everything down, there's hand wipes and sanitizer everywhere, everyone else is wearing masks.....in short, it's all good. 

It's been very helpful to us and our friends in getting some of that "regular life" feeling back. It also makes me feel a whole lot better overall.

By the sounds of it,it looks like college football is not happening in the fall.Hard to really make an argument to play when students aren’t on campus and the situation is much worse then in the spring when NCAA tourney and all spring sports (baseball softball lacrosse )The supposed plan is to shoot for a season starting in the spring

The doctor from Houston was on CNN and he said that anxiety and depression can be signs of the virus too since it attacks the nervous system.

Well, the way things are going all over the world I'd say most of us have this virus due to anxiety and depression. Who doesn't have anxiety these days?

Numbers going up. Trump still thinks things are great. He wants his head on Mt. Rushmore. I do hope the land goes back to the Native Americans and they take the other 4 Presidents down.

The more I hear about our past Presidents, the more I want to hide. I knew US History wasn't perfect, but it gets more and more worse with each passing day.

I do. I switch to them and this other channel called Newsy. I think this channel just tells you the news without making things sound worse or better.

I also watch the local Dallas news which is only the weather and sports. Unreal.

I heard this. This is serious :lol:

If this was ancient Greece or the Holy Roman Empire the place would go bankrupt because of all the Trump statues he'd order.

I don't know which stupid person actually thinks this could be real? God help us. For sure someone would blow that mountain up if they added Trump's face on it.

Not in a million years do I see someone approve something so ridiculous :lol: I'm not even sure if American history books will mention or acknowledge him once he's out of the office.

I'm being cautiously optimistic about Florida. 

Since its peak of over 15,000 new cases in one day on July 12, the new infection levels have been gradually decreasing.  We have been under 10,000 new cases per day since July 30th; with the past week or so hovering between 4600 to 8000 new cases per day.  Yesterday around 6200 new cases and today under 5,000.

 This is thanks in part (imo) to the fact that the majority of people in the most populated areas seem to be taking it seriously and are wearing face-masks.   The biggest declines are in those areas. 

The more rural areas where they are not "mandated" might be slowly increasing. (According to what I heard on the radio this morning.  I couldn't find stats to back up what they said). 

Seems as if Florida could become a "microcosm" of the U.S.

Trump should have his own mountain someday.  He's the GOAT 🐐

Being announced right now, four new covid cases here after 102 days of zero community transmission.

Time to squash it again.

Source is unknown. No known link to the border quarantine.

Hopefully we can get it under control before it goes rampant like in places like Aussie.

Auckland going to level 3 for 3 days (4 is highest). Rest of country going to level 2.

That sucks about when you are told to get a shot compared to when your insurance will cover it. Hopefully they will offer an exception.

 

My mom called her insurance company and they said she can get her shots anytime she wants too. She's definitely going to get her 3 shots in September. Hopefully, we will still be okay.

My daughter goes back to classroom teaching at the end of the month.

Every doctor is saying how if you're numbers are up don't go back to school, but no one seems to care.

How the heck has New Zealand got new cases of the kung flu? It is a couple of islands in the middle of nowhere, and presumably they have cut off flights? Does this thing just naturally ferment?

Well however they've done it. No new cases in over 100 days and they have gone back to normal behavior.

I guess being an island is helping and I doubt they are letting in any other people from other countries, which is good.

I know Hawaii isn't doing good. They still have cases. I guess NZ is very unique because Australia is sitll getting cases.

We are saved! Russia has a vaccine and Putin approved it.

Putin even gave the vaccine to one of his daughters and he said she's okay.

I wonder if Trump will call his good friend up and ask to get the vaccine asap to every American? Yeah, right!

The doctors here say this can't be a viable vaccine because you need many trials to make sure it's safe.

Is Putin lying? Does he care? Is the rest of the world too careful?

I saw a special on CNN and they talked to the head of that lab in China. He took them on a tour of the lab and showed how high security is and how sealed off it is and how he said there was no way this virus could have come from the lab and gotten to that out door market.  The workers had on this suits that I've never seen before with breathing hoses and other stuff. So how did this virus get out? We'll never know and at this point why would it matter when it's all over the damn world now.

I watched the local Dallas news last night and a Mexican American family have not been together since New year's eve and many of their members have gotten the virus. Some have died after a few days. Some without underlying health problems. One was 35 years old and a father and husband. The one man lost his mom and his uncle is in re-hab now. They've all been tested and he and other members have the virus, but are home. He's very puzzled as to how anyone of them could have gotten the virus when they haven't seen each other in months? Very sad to lose so many family members when they have done what we are all asked to do. This scares the shit out of me. Will wearing a mask and staying inside even help anymore?

All doctors say we need more testing. Will that even help at this stage of the game?

Trump won't sign an executive order for more testing because he would have to admit he's full of shit and the virus is out of control.

I do hope all those bikers are having fun in South Dakota because once they get back home, all hell will break loss in other states.

The Governor of Georgia is in denial too. Alot of thos high school kids have the virus and brought it home. Yet he says all is well.

I'm honestly feeling that the leaders want more and more people to die and end our way of life forever.

Thats great news for your Mom! :headbang: I'm so happy to hear it!

Im not sure whether the school boards made the right choice to reopen or not, but I can say with confidence that most teachers are good and smart and will do what it takes to keep your kiddo safe!

It most likely didn't.

Went to the supermarket this morning wearing a mask and plastic medical type gloves - which were useless and got shredded because they were too small I guess. 99% of people didn't wear a mask or even social distance.

They're saying the origin is unknown but I guarantee they're just saying that because they can't announce "It's from the people we keep letting flood into the country via poorly managed border quarantine facilities."

Living in Texas a lot of people tell you to have a blessed day. It doesn't bother me one bit. I feel they are just being kind, which sometimes a person needs.

That's awesome.  We need more people like that. :thumbsup:

That said, the meme was making light of when people sneeze now.  People get alarmed because of Covid and could give you a funny look instead of saying, "Bless you".  ;)
