Covid 19 again

I am bored with the virus. Not happy social distance, but it seems necessary.

Recent estimates are that less than 1 percent die from the virus as many more are not counted in the limited testing. Still one percent of 7 billion people in this world is a large number. Winter is coming soon and that may be a bad time get sick.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data suggesting that for every documented infection in the United States, there were 10 other cases on average that had gone unrecorded, probably because they were very mild or asymptomatic. If there are many more asymptomatic infections than once thought, then the virus may be less deadly than it has appeared.

On Thursday, after the World Health Organization held a two-day online meeting of 1,300 scientists from around the world, the agency’s chief scientist, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, said the consensus for now was that the I.F.R. is about 0.6 percent — which means that the risk of death is less than 1 percent.
0.6 percent of the world’s population is 47 million people, and 0.6 percent of the American population is 2 million people. The virus remains a major threat.

According to data gathered by The New York Times, China had reported 90,294 cases as of Friday and 4,634 deaths, which is a C.F.R. of 5 percent. The United States was very close to that mark. It has had 2,811,447 cases and 9,403 deaths, about 4.6 percent. Those percentages are far higher rates than the 2.5 percent death rate often ascribed the 1918 flu pandemic.

New evidence that people with Type A blood are more likely fall deathly ill could change risk calculations.

Those researchers looked at 267 studies in more than a dozen countries, and then chose the 25 they considered the most accur weighting them for accuracy and averaged the data. They concluded that the global I.F.R. was 0.64 percent. arrive at the C.D.C.’s new estim researchers tested samples from 11,933 people for antibodies the coronavirus in regions in the United States. New York City reported 53,803 cases by April 1, but the actual number of infections was times higher — nearly 642,000, the agency estimated.

In each of the eight influenza pandemics the United States since 63, a relatively mild first wave — no matter what time of year it arrived — was followed by a larger, much more lethal wave a few months later, noted Michael T. Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.

More than a third of the people killed by the Spanish flu, which lasted from March 1918 late 1920, died in the short stretch between September and December 1918 — about months after a first, relatively mild version of what may have been the same virus broke out in western Kansas.

People are tired of the restrictions, but infections may get much worse as the weather gets cold and people spend more time indoors in close proximity.

The new infections are rapidly increasing. The hospitals are getting filled and may be overwhelmed. Dr. Fauci is predicting we may soon see 100,000 new cases a day. Others claim the real number of infections may be ten times the reported cases. Still too hard and too expensive to get tested.

Some feel the end of the world is coming. Hope for a vaccine, and limit your risk if you are older or have medical issues. We will survive as a species, but not will outlive this plague...

Another sign of Trump as incompetent. He skipped the daily security briefing so he was only into the threats once a week or so. No wonder he did not any attention the Russian bounty kill Americans. Yet Trump wants invite his buddy Putin back the G7!

Trump does not know Russia is not our friend.

More Covid 19 woes

We are still in the first wave of cases, but now back mid April numbers of new cases. But now we are reopening and the problems will multiply. People falsely think there is no more problem. Wrong! There are some better drugs and strategies but the hospitals are about be overwhelmed again. Most of the young and healthy who get infected will survive, but the over 60 ones with health issues will die. Too sad to think about for many. 95% of the dead have two or more health issues, most commonly high blood pressure and obesity.

The semi-bright news is this human sacrifice should get Biden elected in November. There will be at least another 100,000 dead Americans. We could have and should have been smart and strong like New Zealand or Germany. Or British Columbia, or Taiwan, or South Korea. But we were foolish and leaderless.

Without more stimulus we will slip into recession and depression by Fall. Not pretty. Fasten your seat belts for the bumpy ride...

Right wing guy John Bolton roasts Trump in his new book according to reviews. Now Trump claims Bolton is a loser and a fool. Who hired this fool? Trump.

Bolton make many claims against Trump. Including that Trump wanted China to buy farm products to win re-election. Another foreign interference in the 2020 election that Trump solicited for his own gain and not for the U.S.

Trump is a traitor and sell out to foreign interests.

Bolton had the nerve to complain Congress did not do a good job of impeachment when he refused to testify to the House, and the Senate GOP was not interested in what he could tell them. He got $2 million for a book. Now Trump wants to suppress the book to avoid the bad news. No national security breach just bad publicity.

Supreme Court saves DACA and dreamers

The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Trump administration's attempt to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an Obama-era program that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the US as from deportation.
The 5-4 ruling was written by Chief Justice John Roberts and joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor.
In penning the opinion, Roberts once again sided with the liberals on the bench in a momentous dispute that will infuriate judicial conservatives who are still bitter that he once provided the deciding vote to uphold Obamacare.

The ruling emphasizes that the administration failed to provide an adequate reason to justify ending the DACA program. "We do not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies," Roberts wrote in the majority opinion. "'The wisdom' of those decisions 'is none of our concern.' We address only whether the agency complied with the procedural requirement that it provide a reasoned explanation for its action."

The Trump administration could move, again, to try to rescind the program, but this time the administration will have to provide a better explanation grounded in policy for its reason for termination.

"Today's decision allows Dreamers to breathe a temporary sigh of relief," said Professor Stephen Yale-Loehr of Cornell Law School. "The administration may try to terminate the DACA program with a better justification, but that will take months or years. In the meantime, Congress should enact permanent relief for Dreamers to end this drama once and for all."

Now we need Joe Biden to win and a Democrat controlled Congress to allow a path to citizenship for the Dreamers. We need their help and work for a solid economy.

Less sex

It is not news, but people are having less sex than before. More are not doing it for months and months. The virus has also slowed sex activity.

At times I feel like some kind of Omega man, as the last one trying be sexually active.

Phones and games are distracting us as well. But too busy for sex? I realize it takes enjoy sex and many are hurting in the income department.

The good news is people are taking some time to learn about a partner before a hook up.

Also abortions are down as less sex means less unwanted procreation.

So if you are lonely, you are not alone in feeling that way.

British critic of Trump

A witty and nasty review of Trump from the UK.

“Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” Nate White, an articulate and witty writer from England wrote the following response:

A few things spring mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed. So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever. I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman. But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.

Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers. And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.

There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface. Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront. Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul. And in Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist. Trump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that. He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat. He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.

And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully. That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead. There are unspoken rules to this stuff – the Queensberry rules of basic decency – and he breaks them all. He punches downwards – which a gentleman should, would, could never do – and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless – and he kicks them when they are down.

So the fact that a significant minority – perhaps a third – of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he says, and then think ‘Yeah, he seems like my kind of guy’ is a matter of some confusion and no little distress to British people, given that:
• Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and mostly are.
• You don’t need a particularly keen eye for detail to spot a few flaws in the man.

This last point is what especially confuses and dismays British people, and many other people too; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss. After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; he is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit. His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum. God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid. He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart. In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he would make a Trump. And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish: ‘My God… what… have… I… created?' If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.

Protest and risk Covid 19

Sadly the cost of protesting may be Covid 19 infection. Hard keep distance in a protest. Getting arrested would be bad as detention centers are hotbeds of infection.

Wear a mask and stay feet apart... if possible.

In what he called a back-of-the-envelope estim Trevor Bedford, an expert the virus at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute, wrote on Twitter that each day of protests could result in about 3,000 new cases and 50 500 deaths. Given the racial disparities seen during the pandemic, he noted, that surge would disproportionately affect black people. “Societal benefit of continued protests must be weighed against substantial potential impacts health,” he wrote.

More troubles

I fear for my fellow Americans. The latest news the virus is that only about 3% of the Los Angeles population has been infected, so that means the rest of 97% are in danger of infection, assuming you cannot get the problem twice. Immunity is not clear from a one time infection. Also the virus can mutate and there may be no immunity another strain if that occurs. The seasonal flu does come in new flavors each year.

So that could mean we have this threat for years or even decades!

The protestors over George Floyd seem to have forgotten we have a pandemic happening. Most pictures did not show social distancing, people wearing masks and awareness of the danger. The latest CDC numbers show more than 23,000 new cases daily in the U.S. If one percent of those die that is another 2,300 dead in weeks or so.

The news is about 93% of those who die have a pre-existing medical problem, most often high blood pressure. Other popular problems are lung issues, heart issues, and kidney issues. made worse by obesity which strains the body. Air pollution including tear gas makes lung function worse too.

Those over age 60 are higher risk for serious illness. Perhaps 50% of the infected show no symptoms but are still contagious to others. We are just at the first start of this problem.

Sadly, eating, drinking and singing together is a perfect way to transmit the virus to new people. So sensible people will be careful and try not to get infected.

With the current behavior we can expect another 100,000 to 200,000 more dead Americans from Covid 19 by November. If we had been smart like British Columbia, Canada we could have kept the deaths to a much lower number. A terrible shame.

I have not had a haircut in months and wear my shaggy locks proudly...

There is a large unmet need for mental health counseling. But I am not a therapist nor do I play one on TV. In my profession as an attorney I meet a number of people who are mentally ill. I do my best to avoid them and refuse to take them on as . I learned this lesson the hard way.

My experience is that you always lose when you try to help someone who is mentally ill. No matter how good a job you do they are not happy with the result and will sue you for not doing better. The mentally ill believe they are right and all others are wrong.

My rule is to refuse to get involved with the mentally ill. Sorry, I cannot help you. You need professional assistance from someone trained to deal with insanity. Not me. Good luck to you, elsewhere. Not me. Bye.
