Until the population gets over 50% infection rate the virus will continue to spread. Sweden is allowing its infections to grow in order to achieve their quest for herd immunity sooner than later. A vaccine may never come so herd immunity is another alternative. Obviously NY lockdown has failed to stop the spread. The majority of new infections are now coming from those that stayed home.
Herd immunity will eventually stop the spread.

Harvard said there would be classes. It did not specify that they would be in classrooms on campus, and hinted that they would be online. Purdue said that they have a very strong interest in having on-campus classes, even if it means starting in mid-October. CSU-Fullerton has already announced that fall classes will be online. Hardly a STATEMENT by any that they will have on-campus classes come fall. Any University that doesn't say they WANT to have classes on-campus would be lying.

Also, people don't realize that there is existing, not new, UV medical treatments. Psoriasis patients have been getting UV treatments for years. Yet when Trump brought up the possibility of exploring it as an option to treat COVID19, he was panned as if he was prescribing suicide.
On May 1, the usual acceptance deadline, SMU had less than 1/3 of their usual acceptances. Two days later they sent a message to all accepted applicants and parents that they would definitely be fully opening on campus classes this fall—two days after that they completely filled their allotted freshman class. Other universities will figure this out. Most all schools will open on-campus classes. They may politically prefer to continue the shut down, but economic reality says otherwise. If we assume that C-19 infections and deaths double (and that is far from a certainty) we won’t approach the per capita infections and deaths of the 1957 Asian Flu or the 1968 Hong Kong Flu—when we hardly closed anything. Wake Up America, and quit listening to the media and political scare tactics.
Good luck with that. 1000+ new infections per day since April 30. That's not political, that's science. Sacrificing Texans for economic gain.
Only 1000 Texans a day are contracting the virus since the state re-opened? That's not bad. Only those that have pre-existing conditions are going to die. It's survival of the fittest, weeding out the weak. Why should anyone be concerned? Especially since most of Texas is already in the hot season with temps approaching or passing 100 degrees and the C19 doesn't do well in the heat. Who cares what happens when summer turns to fall next November? Maybe that number jumps to 5000 per day. Who cares? Screw it, the kids won't know they're bringing it home at the holidays to infect their parents and family as most won't show signs of carrying the virus. Why worry about putting 20-30,000 people in stadiums that seat 4x that many? And those that are not afraid cannot be affected or carry the virus due to their lack of fear. The C19 doesn't touch those that are not afraid. It is especially kind to those that urge us to ignore the political and media medical experts who created this for their own political or popular gain.

:sarcasmflag:
Oh god no. How terrible. We must stop this madness. The only way is to have a complete lockdown. EVERYONE must stay home . We can't have people being selfish like some here who think it's ok for another person to expose themselves to have to work and bring their groceries to their doors. NO. We must all stay home. Yes we will all die from starvation eventually but the virus will not have gotten us.

:lol: :lol: Exactly. We must stop the media madness and obsession with this pandemic. Again, the metrics of this pandemic hasn't yet even approached those of past pandemics, where the U.S. just kept on going. The only reason to dial back economic activity is to ensure we don't overwhelm our medical capacity--something we didn't even approach in the First Wave, despite all the forecasts and catastrophic predictions. We'll have vastly more medical capacity in the Second Wave. And as TPS says, this pandemic isn't going to stop til each country has 50%+ infection. To protect ourselves from the Second Wave, take vitamin D3 supplements, wear masks, keep your distance, measure your oxygen absorption, and march on.

Right. I don't believe in being an extremist on either end of the matter. My wife is on the front lines of this having to work 12 -14 hour days EVERYDAY . No days off. I am an essential worker too and and have to continue to go in.I am also in the age bracket that puts me at high risk. So yes I take this very seriously. As you said there and I have posted previously we all have to be in this together in order to have a safe balance between our health concerns and our economic well being. So everyone should be mandated to wear mask when outside of their homes. maintain social distancing as well as possible, wash our hands frequently and properly, use hand sanitizer, cough and sneeze into the crook of our arms. That can all be easily done and not cost us or the government anything.

Be aware and stay safe my friends.

It's so frustrating to see so many people ignore the distancing rules and not wearing masks--two simple ways to mitigate the C-19 spread, and keep the economy going. If a city or state wants to ignore these basic safeguards, then I'm all in favor of shutting them down again.

lol people talking about herd immunity and acting like those with preexisting conditions....well I got bad news for you. Check this out:
"In the UK, a report suggests that two thirds of people who have fallen seriously ill with coronavirus were overweight or had obesity. Meanwhile, a report from Italy suggests 99% of deaths have been in patients with pre-existing conditions, including those which are commonly seen in people with obesity such as hypertension, cancer, diabetes and heart diseases."
How many people in the US fall in one of these catagories? Over 70 million adults in U.S. are obese, 99 million are overweight. What happens when all those fattys over run the hospitals?

In Texas 1 in 3 citizens is obese.....talk about thinning out the herd......

Not correct. The avg age of death for Covid is around 80. You still can beat it being overweight and obese. If your old and obese your chances become greater you won’t. A good number of people died in nursing homes. Usually people there are already near the end of their life expectancy. At that point a cold may lead to their demise.
The current US life expectancy is 78.9 years old anyway. So this lines up with the avg age of those dying from Covid.

Vitamin D strengthens the immune system, and specifically works to keep a flawed immune system from attacking healthy cells, while it attacks foreign cells like viruses. When the healthy cells are attacked it causes inflammation problems throughout one’s body. In addition to higher fatality rates for those with obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure, other less discussed co-morbidities include colitis, Crones Disease, Psoriasis, and other diseases involving inflammation problems. To mitigate these risks, you have to have 5,000 to 8,000 IU per day of Vitamin D3.. While fair complexed people can readily convert sunlight to D3, African Americans and Hispanics can’t making it even more important that they take supplemental D3. But anyone living north of the 37th latitude (most of the U.S.) are subject to D3 deficiencies especially during the winter. Take D3 and help your immune system help you during this pandemic.

I got bad news for you Ruski, C-19 isn’t going anywhere until it gets its 50% to 70%. It also doesn’t care how much our population has a pre-existing condition. Herd Immunity will not be preventative for the first 50% to 70% infected, but can serve as a prevention for the final 30%—as the virus runs out of “food”. Given it’s high R0, the fact 80% to 90% of those infected don’t need medical care, and that it appears many more have already been infected, C-19 is more vulnerable to a Herd Immunity solution than many other viruses. Yea, we all hope for a “magic bullet” vaccine, but the odds are C-19 will get its 50%+ before the vaccine solution is available.

LOL. Most vitamin supplements are a waste of money of you don't get it in food or sunlight. It's pissed out. Americans have the richest urine in the world.

tps, the Life Expectancy number is misleading, especially how you use it. That number is accurate for the general population, most of which is below the age of 80. But do you know that if you live to age 80 your chance of making it to 90 is something like 3x greater than someone who is just 60? To say that these older folks were probably going to die soon anyway is not only crass, but misleading as well. The Economist released an article earlier this week that shows this.

Wrong again MicMan. It’s not that easy to get enough in food. And getting it from sunlight is mainly for the pasty white folks living below the 37th latitude.

In addition to higher fatality rates for those with obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure, other less discussed co-morbidities include colitis, Crones Disease, Psoriasis, and other diseases involving inflammation problems. To mitigate these risks, you have to have 5,000 to 8,000 IU per day of Vitamin D3.. While fair complexed people can readily convert sunlight to D3, African Americans and Hispanics can’t making it even more important that they take supplemental D3. But anyone living north of the 37th latitude (most of the U.S.) are subject to D3 deficiencies especially during the winter. Take D3 and help your immune system help you during this pandemic.
LOL. Most vitamin supplements are a waste of money of you don't get it in food or sunlight. It's pissed out. Americans have the richest urine in the world.
Wrong again MicMan. It’s not that easy to get enough in food. And getting it from sunlight is mainly for the pasty white folks living below the 37th latitude.
, I take so many vitamins, when I pizz, it's a rainbow !!!!

This is Dr. Fauci's response to Peter King when asked if there would be NFL games this fall:
“I think it’s feasible that negative testing players could play to an empty stadium,” Fauci said. “Is it guaranteed? No way . . . There will be virus out there and you will know your players are negative at the time they step onto the field. You’re not endangering . . . Also, if the virus is so low that even in the general community the risk is low, then I could see filling a third of the stadium or half the stadium so people could be six feet apart. I mean, that’s something that is again feasible depending on the level of infection. I keep getting back to that: It’s going to depend. Like, right now, if you fast forward, and it is now September. The season starts. I say you can’t have a season—it’s impossible. There’s too much infection out there. It doesn’t matter what you do. But I would hope that by the time you get to September it’s not gonna be the way it is right now.”

Taulia Tagovailoa from Alabama has entered the transfer portal as he was 5th on the depth chart. Go get him, Willie & Co. He wouldn't be eligible this year, but will have 3 years of eligibility left.

Uconn has announced they are canceling their football program . . . Wait, I think I’m early on that one :D
Yes you are early on that. It came out yesterday that they have signed a TV contract with CBSSN for seven figures a year to show their home football games.
