The Georgia website has a wealth of information and that is only one graphic of the many that are provided. Cases have been rising for about a month as is shown on their graphs, but deaths have continued to decline since Georgia re-opened in late April. If you can’t figure out the circumstances in Georgia with the information that they are providing, you’re a moron.

This is someone looking for a conspiracy where’s there is none.

Ask the epidemiologists such as Osterholm. I provided you with ample evidence of your errors. Man up Gii.
Ok I’ll do this one more time and then I’m done.

"In a letter published in Annals of Internal Medicine, they cited the size of viral particles as a possible reason for masks' poor ability to filter the virus, despite their effectiveness against other respiratory infections."

Size of viral particles. :ROFLMAO:
Viral particles is not the same as the virus by itself. And as I already said it later says that this didn’t actually look at Covid specifically and didn’t look at if masks shortened the distance droplets traveled.



Osterholm on masks June 2020
Talks about virus size. 😂😂
GII says he changed from earlier. Nope.
He actually never talks about virus size. He talks about particles and aerosols.


No mention of size. 😂
First bullet point talks about droplets being main way of spread, then talks about size of them.

Talking about the size of the virus isn’t the issue, talking about only the size of the virus when discussing masks is misleading. It seems you’re having a hard time understanding the difference between the virus itself, viral particles or aerosols, and droplets.

Oh but the good news is that the 1k deaths per day for the last 10 days (minus weekends) still doesn't count yet. they're solely an 'outlier' for a few more weeks (you can't base anything off of a couple days worth of data!) so we can just subtract all deaths that happen from last week until the end of the month and they won't exist anymore. No problem, totally under control. Open up!!!
stop protesting.

Yeah, agree I don’t know why anyone would rely on a very imprecise heat map to follow an epidemic. As a generalization progressives tend not to be detail-oriented, in favor of tweeting misleading or easy to digest but very incomplete numbers 🤷🏻‍♂️. It helps explain how they got that way in the first place.

Fauci really was in over his head. You can't have an 80 year old doing that job.

You said the size was not discussed by epidemiologists. It was, many times by various folks. Admit your error.
You are having a hard time with honesty. And understanding the effectiveness of masks.

I said the size of the virus isn’t used by them to determine effectiveness of masks. Your links actually helped my argument because they all discussed particles, aerosols and droplets. Again, you seem to not understand that those are different.

If she is comparing her state to another low population isolated state with a low infection rate that did shut down, she'd have a point, I guess. Does that exist?

Is she suggesting that New York, Texas, and California adopt her strategy for success?
> Is she suggesting that New York, Texas, and California adopt her strategy for success?

No, because we all know that New York, Texas and California cannot live within their means.

Understand just fine. Your not being honest.

Reportedly. Twice even. It's gotta be true
We don't know if it is true. However, it is consistent with how trump has done business since he took office. He has often characterized his interactions and agreements with other political leaders, domestic and foreign, on the basis of whether or not they were nice to him.

Fox News is some hack media, right stocker?
Some of the folks on that network are smarter than you. They realize that Trump is a sinking ship of stupidity. Getting him out of office might be the only way to save the Republican party from imploding.

There's no question a Trump has been an enormous failure on COVID response and orchestrating supply chains, production, testing. Totally awful.

However, as our socialist comrades in Europe, NY, NJ, MA, MI, CA have amply demonstrated the virus will find a way, compounded by bad policy and a large proportion of dumbasses in the population. Time will tell if the Germanies and South Korea’s of the world can avoid eventual spread. Maybe? I don’t know. They have benefit of homogenous cultures and some semblance of respect for authority, it appears. Faith in social contract.

Washington state ramping, Oregon, Minnesota, Australia, Israel. Instead of eradication the goal will end up to flatten the curve?
