    The numbers are available in the UK. The effects of slow to lock down are plain to see.

    Speaking of airlines, I have heard that some of them are packing their passengers into their planes again. No social distancing needed, apparently. My daughter told me about a friend's daughter who recently took a flight to Mexico City to hang out with her new boyfriend for a couple of weeks. She said that plane was packed to the brim and no one was wearing a mask during the flight. I didn't hear anything about the passengers being quarantined after arriving at the airport. Happy days are here again.

    The news media is going all out to drive the general public crazy and paranoid. This morning my local radio station had on another "expert" who said that what we need to do is to lock everyone in their homes and force people to be tested for the COVID-19 virus before they can be let out. Just like the Chinese did in Wuhan. And then a state legislator was interviewed and he said that no one over the age of 65 should be allowed to leave their homes and that anything they need should be brought to them by the government (who is here to help. ) or a non-profit organization. Talk about trying to stir the pot and cause more rebellion against the government and health officer regulations, along with providing endless fodder for discussion on conservative talk shows.

    Meanwhile, my town is closing the local beaches again this weekend because they expect to be overwhelmed by visitors traveling from all over, visiting Pacifica to enjoy the sun, sand and ocean water for the Fourth of July holiday. Good luck with that. Our small police force is not going to be able to control the crowds and kick them off the beach if they don't live locally, along with dealing with illegal fireworks being shot off all over town, which has plenty of areas of dry vegetation that is just waiting to catch fire.

    I wonder what the death toll will be with the international practice of stupidity in regards to the Pandemic.
    High enough to have a positive effect on the stain humanity puts on the earth?

    Listen to Fla. Gov. DeSantis shoot his mouth off against the media for coronavirus coverage,
    "Now what Rick,,."


    https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...064734269.html

    On Cuomo Prime Time Monday night, Chris Cuomo called out Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who railed against the media for its reporting on his handling of the coronavirus not long before Florida would become a national hotspot for new cases.

    “You got a lot of people in your profession who waxed poetically for weeks and weeks about how Florida was gonna be just like New York,” DeSantis said, wagging his finger at the media standing in front of him. “Wait two weeks, Florida’s gonna be next. Just like Italy, wait two weeks,” said DeSantis impersonating the media, before adding, “Well, hell, we’re eight weeks away from that and it hasn’t happened.”

    Cuomo mocked DeSantis’s gestures before asking, “What now?” Then, with his finger to his lips, gave a belittling “Shhhhhh.”

    As coronavirus cases first began to surge across the country, DeSantis regularly looked to the White House for guidance, something Cuomo alluded to in blaming DeSantis for the current situation in Florida.

    “Florida health officials reported nearly 10,000 new coronavirus cases on Saturday. Its highest single day since the start of the pandemic,” Cuomo said. “He made Trump happy, Gov. DeSantis did, and now more Floridians than they can count accurately appear to be sick.”

    Florida is one of a handful of states, including Texas, that were among the first to reopen that are now closing things down again. Cuomo pointed out that even Vice President Mike Pence is slowly beginning to take a new approach to the coronavirus. Pence recently postponed campaign events in Florida and Arizona due to the extreme increase in coronavirus cases in both states.

    “Even Pence, who you saw silently by DeSantis’s side as he spewed nonsense, seems to be his strongest asset as an ally, even he is now saying you should wear a mask,” Cuomo said. “That’s good since he’s the head of the coronavirus task force. It’s bad that he is only saying so now.”

    For you lot of American conspiracy theorists and covid deniers out there, why don't you go out, breath on each other and compare notes in two weeks time. I bet some will be sick, few will be extremely sick, and a couple may die. Do you want to take that chance? Wearing a face mask or getting ill? The choice is yours - but don't come knocking on my door for help if you get it I'll only tell you to go forth and multiply.

    Unfortunately, something like that has happened a couple of times in the SF Bay Area. In one case a woman in a store was asked by another customer to keep her distance from the other woman and her small child. Then the woman took off her mask and coughed into the face of the child. It was all captured on film and the cops have tracked her down and are trying to decide what to charge her with.

    Another case happened at a bar. A woman walked it and was asked to leave because she wasn't wearing a mask. She then coughed onto the bartender face and walked out the door, toppling over a chair on the way out. That also made the nightly news. The police are asking anyone who recognized her to contact them, however the bartender doesn't want her prosecuted.

    Oh look who made the Travel list to Europe, seems more then a few of the so called sh-t hole countries made the grade,,. What's up with that,,!!
    Oh right, they mastered the art of wearing face masks & social distancing in those backward unsophisticated countries,,.


    The European Union announced Tuesday that it will reopen its borders to travelers from 14 countries, Americans have been refused entry due to soaring coronavirus infections in the U.S.

    Travelers from other big countries with high infection rates, like Russia, Brazil and India, will also miss out.

    Citizens from the following countries will be allowed into the EU's 27 member states and four other nations in Europe's visa-free Schengen travel zone: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.

    The EU said China is "subject to confirmation of reciprocity," meaning it must lift all restrictions on European citizens entering China before Chinese citizens will be allowed back into the EU.

    USA National Pandemic Plan “just sort of disappear”

    Despite a recent surge in novel coronavirus cases, United States President Donald Trump said he still believes the virus will “just sort of disappear” at some point.

    “I think we’re going to be very good with the coronavirus. I think at some point that’s going to sort of just disappear, I hope,” he said during an interview on Fox Business on Wednesday.

    When asked if he still believed that, Trump replied: “I do. Sure. At some point, and I think we’re going to have a vaccine very soon too.”

    I don't think tens of thousands of young people not wearing masks marching and protesting about BLM and other issues last month is helping to contain the virus here very much. Plus, it was party time in many places on Memorial Day and likely will be the same thing come July 4, this Saturday. The Governor and local jurisdictions are trying to keep people at home and away from large crowds, beaches and indoor events this weekend, but I doubt very many people are going to pay much attention to those requests and orders. The cops are just not able to keep masses of people from violating the rules. This is after all the land of the free and we all know it. The beaches along the coast here will be shut down between Friday morning and Monday morning. I plan to ride along Highway 1 this weekend to see how many people really follow those rules. I bet there are going to be a lot of "no parking" signs and yellow caution tape piled into dumpsters and thrown over cliffs along the coast beaches. Personally, I am expecting another big batch of virus infection cases near the end of July.

    Trump claims 99% of US Covid-19 cases are 'totally harmless' as infections surge
    President’s White House speech capping 4 July celebrations says US coronavirus strategy is ‘moving along well’

    Donald Trump has celebrated independence day with a string of false and misleading claims attempting to play down the coronavirus pandemic and warning that China will be “held accountable”.

    The US president staged a “Salute to America” jamboree on the south lawn of the White House with flyovers by military jets, parachute jumps and patriotic songs, but little effort among guests to physical distance or wear face masks.

    The country has undergone staggering changes unthinkable when Trump hosted the first such event a year ago on 4 July with tanks and other military hardware at the Lincoln Memorial. The coronavirus has infected 2.8m Americans and killed nearly 130,000, the worst tallies in the world. Do the math US death rate is 4.6% & hospitalizations are at 20%, permanent lung damage & scaring,,?,,.

    Trump claims 'victory' as US sees Covid-19 case records in multiple states

    Saturday’s national celebration was inevitably more subdued, but the president refused to let the pandemic or dismal poll figures rain on his parade, waving with his wife, Melania, from a White House balcony then walking the south lawn to ripples of applause and a cry of: “Four more years!”

    “We got hit by the virus that came from China,” the president said, prompting a strange whoop and applause from someone in the audience. “We’ve made a lot of progress. Our strategy is moving along well. It goes out in one area, it rears back its ugly face in another area. But we’ve learned a lot. We’ve learned how to put out the flame.”

    The number of infections now regularly tops 50,000 per day, higher than in April when the US was in the first grip of infections. Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, warned this week: “I think it’s pretty obvious that we are not going in the right direction.”

    Trump returned to his now familiar and baseless complaint that America has a high caseload because it performs more tests. “Now we have tested almost 40m people. By so doing, we show cases, 99% of which are totally harmless. Results that no other country can show because no other country has the testing that we have, not in terms of the numbers or in terms of quality.” It was unclear how the president arrived at the “99%” harmless figure.

    I wonder if Trump is a "super spreader"? It seem like everyone around him is becoming infected, while he apparently remains virus free.
