    "new cases mean nothing"

    Yet El Paso passes curfew due to Covid causing ICU max capacity

    It's not that serious y'all. People being stuck on ventilators and in critical condition isn't that serious. Means nothing at all!

    "Most alarming, however, is the dramatic increase in hospitalizations in the county. There are 786 people hospitalized, with 177 in ICU and a record 117 on ventilators.

    “In less than three weeks we’ve spiked from 259 to 786 COVID related hospitalizations—a 300 percent increase. If we continue on this trend, we risk detrimental effects to our entire healthcare system,” Public Health Director Angela Mora said. “For the sake of those hospitalized and the frontline healthcare workers working tirelessly each day to care for them, we ask you to please stay home for two weeks and eliminate your interactions with those outside your household until we can flatten the curve.”

    Not serious at all when people are in the ICU. Tough sh!t for you if you're stuck there. It's not a death, so it means nothing.

    People like Roscoe are a danger to our society.

    Bigtexxx is just trolling. He just plays a character on the BBS. I don't believe he is a real person.

    Fake news. It's terrific, it's fantastic, they're doing a wonderful job, they tell me it's going well, it's going fantastic.

    He promised only "A Vaccine" in the next few weeks.

    Didn't say that it always worked or that it could kill you, did he?

    WY, ID, SD positivity rate are 35-40%
    WI, UT, NV, KA, NE are at 20-25%
    ND, FL, PA, TN, MT are at 10-15%
    TX is at 9%

    Uptick in every region, including NE that has been mostly quiet through the summers. We are heading into this fall wave too steep. Not looking good at all.

    Oh really?
    It doesn't sound familiar that a right wing populist government with theocratic religious elements is rushing in a Supreme court with anti abortion views contrasting most of society?
    :rolleyes:
    A dig at american politics? Why are you offended? Isn't it exactly reality?
    What does the latest supreme court member think about Wade vs Roe?
    How did the american government has made abortion less accessible to millions of women?

    LOL my ass at taking the misogynistic reality as a dig.

    First of all thank you malakas for your concerns, hope that everything is well for you in Greece especially after the earthquake today.

    Can't say i'm surprised from the situation and I guess that most europeans posters here would agree with me but i'm obviously disappointed from the fact that we're entering a new lockdown.
    Crazy that we keep the borders open but with the current infection rate i think that we're already the leading European country in infection rate so not a big harm there.


    Been some time since I posted here.
    Like others(I guess) i was pretty busy trying to follow up on my "lockdown decisions" that I made, some of them are in the process to come true and some are just crazy dreams that are far away.
    Hope you all are doing well and staying safe.

    Good to hear from you.

    That one person visit per week guideline is tough, 2 if you are all alone.

    Is this accurate or is it just stricter restrictions?
