It's been 2 weeks since Walz had his press conference locking things down.

We were told at the time that the numbers were getting worse and the data showed that we needed to be shut down immediately because there was going to be a huge spike in numbers in 2 weeks as the data had a lag effect what we saw the day of the lockdown would increase "dramatically"

Here are the number from SON's posting in the Corona virus thread (Thanks SON):

Positive cases 11/20: 5,865

Positive cases: 12/04: 5,084

What happened to the HUGE SPIKE in numbers we were told we were going to see?

For those that say well that's because we locked down and that's what dropped the numbers..........sorry, that's not what Walz presented, he said there would be a lag effect and no matter what the numbers would be higher in 2 weeks from the day of his shut down as those infected back then would be testing positive now, looks like he was COMPLETELY WRONG and he continues to rely on bad data to justify the shut down.

He continues to allow college and pro athletics while shutting down high school sports. He’s a complete tool and deserves to be thrown out on his a$&.
He’s got a buoy in answer to the question. The pros are testing their athletes more than high school athletes could be. Not sure why that matters but so it goes. It’s amazing to see how fast pro athletes come back after a positive test. The nfl has people testing positive left and right yet they manage to come back and play with in a week.

Yea, you've nailed it. Waltz and Mike Osterholm have been lying to us since last March. Minnesota obviously has had Covid-19 licked all along so we need to open things up as quickly as possible - just like all the other states are doing.


Dec. 3 Update; Latest on COVID-19 in MN: 92 more deaths add to grim 7-day toll

MPR News Staff
December 3, 2020 5:00 a.m.

COVID-19 continues to take a brutal toll on Minnesota. The Health Department on Thursday reported 92 more deaths tied to the disease.

The three highest daily death counts in the pandemic have all come in the past week, pushing the seven-day average to 58 deaths reported daily, a record high in the pandemic.

New COVID-19 related deaths reported in Minnesota each day

New hospital admissions retreated from Tuesday’s record seven-day average, but hospitalization levels remain high. More than 1,700 people were in hospitals with COVID-19 as of Wednesday; more than 350 needed intensive care.

New COVID-19 hospitalizations in Minnesota

The latest numbers come as officials brace for another expected wave of cases, hospitalizations and deaths in coming weeks originating from Thanksgiving gatherings. About 1 in 3 recent Minnesota deaths are tied to COVID-19.

Officials on Thursday posted 6,166 newly confirmed or probable cases of the disease, pushing the pandemic total in Minnesota to 333,626. About 87 percent of the people in those cases have recovered to the point they no longer need to be isolated.

New COVID-19 cases per day in Minnesota

The deaths reported Thursday raised Minnesota’s toll to 3,784. Among those who’ve died, about 67 percent had been living in long-term care or assisted living facilities; most had underlying health problems.

At current growth rates COVID-19 deaths in Minnesota would double in 42 days, adding another 3,784 deaths by Jan. 14.

Ahead of Thanksgiving weekend, Gov. Gary Herbert did not extend an order that required people to limit social gatherings.

He continues to allow college and pro athletics while shutting down high school sports. He’s a complete tool and deserves to be thrown out on his a$&.

Of all the things to critique, and there are plenty, this is a ridiculous statement. Do you not understand the difference between Prep and Youth sports vs. College and Pro sports? (Don't say money, you're not being honest with yourself)

Yea, you've nailed it. Waltz and Mike Osterholm have been lying to us since last March. Minnesota obviously has had Covid-19 licked all along so we need to open things up as quickly as possible - just like all the other states are doing.


Dec. 3 Update; Latest on COVID-19 in MN: 92 more deaths add to grim 7-day toll

MPR News Staff
December 3, 2020 5:00 a.m.

COVID-19 continues to take a brutal toll on Minnesota. The Health Department on Thursday reported 92 more deaths tied to the disease.

The three highest daily death counts in the pandemic have all come in the past week, pushing the seven-day average to 58 deaths reported daily, a record high in the pandemic.

New COVID-19 related deaths reported in Minnesota each day

New hospital admissions retreated from Tuesday’s record seven-day average, but hospitalization levels remain high. More than 1,700 people were in hospitals with COVID-19 as of Wednesday; more than 350 needed intensive care.

New COVID-19 hospitalizations in Minnesota

The latest numbers come as officials brace for another expected wave of cases, hospitalizations and deaths in coming weeks originating from Thanksgiving gatherings. About 1 in 3 recent Minnesota deaths are tied to COVID-19.

Officials on Thursday posted 6,166 newly confirmed or probable cases of the disease, pushing the pandemic total in Minnesota to 333,626. About 87 percent of the people in those cases have recovered to the point they no longer need to be isolated.

New COVID-19 cases per day in Minnesota

The deaths reported Thursday raised Minnesota’s toll to 3,784. Among those who’ve died, about 67 percent had been living in long-term care or assisted living facilities; most had underlying health problems.

At current growth rates COVID-19 deaths in Minnesota would double in 42 days, adding another 3,784 deaths by Jan. 14.

Thats all I needed, guess masks do nothing...lol....that looks nice but zero meaning.
They're so desperate to fake a "win" on masks. They can taste it in each other's piss.

Especially after being dead nuts wrong on Sweden, the virus being around perpetually like seasonal flu, and that vaccines wouldn't be effective. Dead nuts wrong, on every. single. aspect.

LOL, he did exactly nothing to explain where this huge spike is that Walz represented was supposed to be here.

In case you don't know math, 5,085 today is less than 5,865 from 2 weeks ago and no where close to the over 7,000 cases we should have now that Walz was inferring.

Glad the restrictions worked! :)

Would've been a huge spike otherwise, as is what his actual argument was.

There's really nothing to debate. Walz has been misinforming the public since this has started.

He will have no basis to extend the current shutdown, but he will make something up to support it.

I'm confused. You ALSO told us that we'd see a massive spike in Minnesota around this time.

I think they are, cases were poping up in my hockey league and my kids school. The timing felt perfect to me.

And MN posted a record number of cases 6 days later, and the two highest reported death totals 4-10 days later.

What point were you trying to make?

The entire point of this thread is that Walz predicted a surge and it didn't come. You piled on and agreed.

I take it you disagree with the OP now, and feel Walz was totally right when he predicted a surge?

Remember that Walz also said that 100% of the Minneapolis riot arrests were from out-of-towners. Walz likes to state that you have to go by the numbers, but he will only go by them, if the numbers supports his ideas.

If you don't believe Walz, you're not a believer in data and Science, according to him. Even though data and Science repeatedly proves that Walz is wrong.

But you DO believe Walz since you both predicted a surge at this time. So are you wrong?

Walz is not pulling the numbers out of thin air. The State Dept of Health is advising him. And nearly all of the big-name medical experts - Fauci, Osterholm, etc - were predicting a surge in cases. the top CDC guy, Redfield, said the next two or three months will be the worst of the pandemic.

So what do you want Walz to do?

come out and say, "All my medical experts say there is going to be a surge, but I don't believe them, so we're going to open up everything full blast."

If you do that, and you're wrong, you're hosed. the safe path is the one he took.

And - no matter what Walz does, the same people would be criticizing him. he is really in a no-win situation. I'm not saying I agree with everything he says or does, but I do realize that he is in a difficult position.

I see very few advocating for things to be open ‘full blast’. There is absolutely no data that supports businesses to be 100% closed.

Fifteen cases down to zero. It will be magically gone by Easter.

Who made these claims?

It's Walz Derangement Syndrome. Righties hate him because he's a democrat. Everything is his fault.
