gwxehof4d
People gotta learn to live with this pandemic instead of shutting down entire societies... and that sort of protocol sounds reasonable.
tdqofpyrulhodcy4d
Agreed. He's not stating that it's 100% proof, but rather that it's _probably_ fine
jgjqzicbew4d
For me it feels hard to remove and put my mask on while keeping my hands and other things clean
gbrbhonokjipqqy4d
I mean, don't eat finger food. Don't put fingers on your face. Don't put fingers where you drink from the cup.
xnmfmuxzgopafscl4d
I have started eating finger foods with chop sticks, I want to eat my salt and vinegar chips but not get vinegar on my fingers.
orwpjkihod4d
I would have to like use both hands to grab the ear strings and slowly remove the mask and place face down on the floor or something. Then slowly repeat and put the mask back on and I still wouldnโ€™t feel comfortable that I didnโ€™t breathe anything in during that process
hpknrhwuod4d
After removing my mask I always wash or sanitize my hands too
jmwvzcjm4d
If you eat the virus, your stomach acid and digestive juices will take care of it.
Lately they have figured out transmission is happening when being really close to sick people for a long time indoors, not wering masks - think of families, offices. I cannot quote a source but it was really easy to notice in countries with low transmission as it was possible to still do some tracking and tracing.
lngmnqzqppxcigvj4d
But ya I think it is ok to have a non binary response to a pandemic. Somewhere between "we should not open parks until we have a vaccine" and "the pandemic is a hoax and we should act like it doesn't exist"
xttsirmmqntvnsj4d
Yeah I don't think it's as transmissive via surface as we originally thought as well
nhsnpvhasyxxysx4d
No source on hand to back that up though, but I read something about it last week
fgmwobnxme4d
I thought that was Trump forcing CDC to say that
xlignfjyzo4d
Thatโ€™s what reddit said anyways ๐Ÿ™ƒ
lfwntzmw4d
Yup, I think they have found fragments of the rna on surfaces but those are not even a virus alive.
gxdngygrmwdpnut4d
Hahaha
epqljwauwbgyvli4d
And the original figures I believe were from a clean lab...which no one lives in
raznnpqgim4d
and hard surfaces
vysoqayqikd4d
ha!!
wzuumduplcywoal4d
But anyway, sounds like local activity may loosen up before/over the summer. Unsure about plane travel though given that involves being in close quarters with a bunch of people for a duration of time.
tfanrjgm4d
What about air inflight being desifected trough filters and what not?
jfqrhcuw4d
From everything that came up about this virus lately, it seems like masks solve close quaters transmission big time. Thats what we do arorund here -- gyms and malls are open, masks are being worn, cases did not increase, they are going down.
qsofiolqttmtwfq4d
That's what I'm wondering too
keiukfzy4d
It did not help statistics that hospitals got special funding for covid patients, so everyone who had the virus and died was written off as dying from it, which some autopsies later on showed to not be true.
rccxywkvlxoqijs4d
wat
ohewxolekgrk4d
iirc this was common misconception thatโ€™s been debunked?
cdufyojr4d
I am trying to dig up the link but not even sure what language I read it in, I remember it was conducted in germany
xytavudr4d
I cannot access the link above, denied. nor the home page. Even trough vpn...
iactsmyvdycl4d
oh weird
qihwdqwt4d
That's us vs germany though, so I dont know. It has been a lot of misconceptions and constantly changing facts about this whole thing.
yivvgisifgbp4d
Yep - one consistent thing Iโ€™m definitely continuing to do, however, is continue my mask wearing and social distancing
ctxcuixabvpx4d
Iโ€™ve also noticed when i wear glasses Iโ€™m far less likely to touch my face - a surprisingly hard habit to break
dnctuzof4d
shouldnt it be fine, unless you really rub your eyes wide open?
spofrfejsdhut4d
I see some people wearing cheap impact glasses around. I might do that, it can be difficult to see with shades indoors
fpzudygrjzlk4d
mmm probably but in general i think itโ€™s considered a bad hygiene habit given that you touch your mucus membranes frequently when u touch your face - like nose, rubbing eyes, touching near the mouth
fobhmbu4d
It's reasonable to assume that the death toll has been inflated or underreported in different areas due to differing protocol, availability of resources, politics, culture, random chance etc.
hfkmbevpzvmc4d
true - iโ€™m just not a fan of erring on the side of conspiracy - i.e. being purposely overreported for the sake of funding
mkjxcnuaglxm4d
when thereโ€™s not enough evidence to point to that. I just see that being done frequently in the US to push the narrative that covid-19 isnโ€™t serious
eroaobhzkvgc4d
that being said - i think statistics are challenging, fundamentally
vlsttnrj4d
whats valid for the US is not always valid for the rest of the world....
iygwytsf4d
Yeah, โ€œanalogโ€ tracing is what helped with other epidemics in SSA. They worked hard to use tracers who were members of the community or who acted in a way that respected the community and earned their trust. Thereโ€™s a lot of nuance to their methods that these technology only solutions miss




hvamxsbgdvojhns4d
Has there been consistencies as it relates to which people get impacted the most by COVID? E.g., age, comorbidity?
fpipxpxc4d
Someone should tell them that yelling indoors is also correlated with higher transmission risk. twitter.com/EBROINTHEAM/status/1265240845713838080?s=19|https://twitter.com/EBROINTHEAM/status/1265240845713838080?s=19

Yuck. Here's some Slovakian COVID rave to rinse that out. www.instagram.com/p/CAnZxECAxKi/
dcsevwtelk4d
Portland started doing the same ๐Ÿ™Œ
psfcjuh4d
Don't go licking anyone's eyeballs at the beach and I think you'll be OK.
lawttejoanh4d
DON'T KINK SHAME ME
fimykizfmogvzgo4d
That actually looks fun
pulyatcnacusmdx4d
I'd be down
paqkpogp4d
i was mostly thinking that soon it'll be too hot for the pods ๐Ÿ˜›
xkijubgf4d
india's government open sourced their contact tracing app github.com/nic-delhi/AarogyaSetu_Android (iOS coming next week)
ofwfrkhu3d
hot take and call me grumpy, but I donโ€™t buy all these pods and big-ass sombreros for social distancing, theyโ€™re made for viral purposes
crpatjmj3d
Iโ€™d rather pursue something viable that is not scaring off people
runlovjg3d
some of the โ€˜solutionsโ€™ are fun tho
fphmlxeq3d
yeah just a fun/viral take on it
xizedxvb3d
It's looking like the panic over Hungary's government ruling by decree might have been for nothing, thankfully. dailynewshungary.com/hungarian-government-aims-to-lift-coronavirus-state-of-emergency-on-june-20/
skvtrrywr2d
that MIGHT be cause for concern
ehiebsrat2d
nearing 0.1% of population with ~10% infected, so fatality will be smth like 0.5-0.7% maybe
wqjmdodpg2d
still incredible numbers, hard to grasp this is the biggest mortality event of our lifetime probably
pmdqjgxnuur2d
It really is hard to grasp
nhhvpj2d
I still think abouut the tsunami every once in a while, what year was that, 2005? it was crazy
dsrsml2d
the numbers of dead people I mean, you get earthquakes and stuff with 100 death all the time but that tsunami was just so out of bounds, it was really shocking
cuaklwdad1d
christmas (or boxing day? in Hungary Christmas is both the 25th and 26th) of 2004
cmjjfvfyb1d
well according to Wikipedia all the deadliest natural disasters were floods, earthquakes, cyclones and typhoons
nopabfaao1d
I wasn't aware of this at all but apparently there was an earthquake in the 70s in China that killed at the very least 242k people with the highest estimates reaching 600k+
arouyx1d
ugh
kiwqxtbjijtvisf1d
I hate 2020
jalmttby1d
You know my lucky number is 20 :man-shrugging::skin-tone-2:๐Ÿฅด

Whatโ€™s wrong with me ๐Ÿ˜‚
hcmcnbizmrrwjock1d
txontscoissywlix Be patient, 2021 could still be worse.
ehwafizwppfvt1d
We could be saying, "Remember how good we had it in 2020 where we were just giggling at the Covid Monkeys? Man, those were the days"
wgtdawbvjhuygwgu1d
New Years Eve of 2021 ok, so last year was a throw away but this year is DEFINITELY our year.
cifbitrqapc1d
```The sample boxes were later recovered and had not been damaged, Meerut Medical college superintendent Dheeraj Raj told AFP on Friday, after footage of the encounter went viral on social media.

"They were still intact and we don't think there is any risk of contamination or spread," Raj said.

He added that the three people whose samples were stolen were retested for the virus.```

(From the Guardian)
kqwuytnriktycbt1d
No kidding!
ioswkaedxjvbfxvd17h
Ok, so if I am keeping track.
1. Crazy wild fires
2. Pandemic
3. Chernobyl fires causing radioactive rain
4. Locust Swarms in Africa and India.
Are we sure this isn't biblical?
djeeybotr17h
Are you thinking four horsemen or ten plagues?
mwtbjcnzyeoettez17h
Also I just realized that my zodiac is Rat and this is the year of the Rat, so that makes me sad.
tfrceccflbcbksyy17h
Horsemen maybe.
isjjcawex17h
Ratmen
rcnnkfwm16h
I donโ€™t think the Ratmen come in fours.. how about the Six Ratmen?
ejgusgillsbcyozt16h
The researcher pointed out that although most of the incidents predicted for the year of the rat have taken place early in 2020, the calendar foresees that there will be bloodshed due to mischief that will occur in and around Northwest Africa; many places will be damaged by rain and hail and looting, and pillaging and theft will escalate in the second half of the year. He added, โ€œSince we are in the spring months, we may still face rain and hail, after the locust invasion and virus envisaged for the year 2020. But hopefully, these predicted events will not happen.โ€

only trust predictions that have been recorded on the blockchain

mrczslozkxfmfrydp i was gonna check that link for sources and then see if it even matched up with whatever archive.org|archive.org might've recorded.. but no source links at all so nevermind
