    Not sure why the other thread is still going at over 2000 posts.

    Edit: Chardog has rightly mentioned that testing has risen dramatically so total number of cases may not be the best indicator of what is happening:

    Testing per month

    May: 10.7M tests
    June: 14.4M test

    This was entirely predictable. I hope every death was worth the virtue signaling.

    It's just going to keep getting worse. Dense population centers are nothing more than giant petri dishes for a pandemic like this, especially when barely anyone follows the rules.

    Imagine being so dumb you go out to protest in the thousands during a deadly pandemic while criticizing the 10 people protesting stay at home orders. Then when the George Floyd protests are over you go back to criticizing the SAH protests like nothing happened.

    Oh gee, I wonder why some states saw a spike in COVID cases. It must've been the 5 people protesting because they couldn't work.

    Prior to the protests 19 different states were already seeing an increase in infections, and the protests compounded that situation. Large gatherings like protests and rallies are not a good idea, nor is refusing to wear a mask on public transit or other public locations.

    Unfortunately the government is looking to reduce funds for testing, because Trump thinks real numbers make him look bad. Right in time for rally season.

    This was always coming. We've escaped it in the UK due to much smaller, much less frequent protests so despite it being 3 weeks ago now, we haven't seen a major increase whatsoever in cases or deaths/hospitalisations. The States is fucked man, these people are still congregating shoulder to shoulder in their 10,000s on the regular to protest something that was dealt with weeks ago. Pick your fucking battles, people....

    Florida reopened early may. Like around may 4. Clearly the spike is from having four people in line at taco bell and not from thousands of people gathering in a way that the people saying it doesn't spread just said it did and then even cite other gatherings while saying this other much larger and much longer gathering isn't the main factor

    I mean there are only 400M people in the country. obviously a couple of bad resisting arrest cases are indicative of a problem in the ether worthy of mass rioting and looting in the face of a pandemic. I mean... the protest...er rioters and looters are obviously smart people

    Most people with brains thought the protests would cause a spike and then the spike happened. Amazing!

    It will be interesting to see what excuses and mental gymnastics the leftards, pundits and mainstream media will be resorting to in order to defend the looters and rioters. What is it with the left's hard on for criminals?

    This clearly shows one thing and one thing only.

    COVID-19 is racist and needs to be cancelled immediately.

    If the hospitals aren’t overwhelmed there’s nothing to see. It was always going to spread to half of everybody.

    Unless TS has an actual article or study, the title needs to be changed to US SEES SPIKE IN CASES AFTER RE-OPENING


    NYC and DC had the most amount of protests and are having decreasing numbers

    Except you know, despite the governor of Florida deliberately suppressing data in regards to both infections and deaths in that state... that's exactly when Florida's cases started trending upward.

    Weird.

    "No evidence exists to support taking vitamin D supplements to prevent Covid-19, UK public health experts have found.

    On Monday, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) said that, having examined five studies, it had not found evidence to support any benefit from vitamin D with respect to Covid-19.

    “While there are health benefits associated with vitamin D, our rapid evidence summary did not identify sufficient evidence to support the use of vitamin D supplements for the treatment or prevention of Covid-19,” said Paul Chrisp, the director of the centre for guidelines at Nice. “We know that the research on this subject is ongoing, and Nice is continuing to monitor new published evidence.”

    At the same time, the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) reached similar conclusions, stating that the evidence did not support recommending vitamin D supplementation to prevent acute respiratory tract infections.

    Nice said the five studies it had examined all had very low quality of evidence, noting that none had adjusted for confounding factors, such as body mass index, higher socioeconomic deprivation and poorer self-reported health.

    The SACN said that one of the most widely supported studies to support the hypothesis that vitamin D reduces the risk of acute respiratory tract infections was one led by Prof Adrian Martineau in 2017. But Martineau, a professor of respiratory infection and immunity at Queen Mary University of London, has himself described the evidence on vitamin D as “mixed” and the SACN said randomised controlled trials published since 2017 had not supported its conclusions.

    The committee said it would keep the topic “under urgent review” and consider updating its assessment if new evidence emerged from randomised controlled trials."
