Then NY and California restaurants shouldn't allow fat people into their restaurants, since they're likely to spread and die from the China Virus.

No one has claimed that obese people get infected more readily and/or spread the disease more readily -just that their organ capacity is more marginal and their ability to survive a Covid infection is lower. So, your comment above doesn't seem to make any sense at all. In addition, it seems mean-spirited. You are advised to please heed the Wizard's warning on this thread and avoid statements with animus (hostility or ill-feeling) towards any group of people as well as towards people who simply disagree with you.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Ummm... perhaps this is a good time to have a polite discussion concerning Nevada's 85.4 percent Covid positivity rate. (USA = 30.2 percent.)

Will data like this affect the area's convention business? If travelers return to the office sick, possible participants may want to skip attending. Perhaps we'll see effects outside Nevada, where Covid spikes could be traced back to the home towns of visitors. Or, not. Football games seem not to spread very much. Has your favorite LV store closed? Other businesses?

Over 85 percent positive means that the employees get no escape. A friend went to the Biloxi Beau Rivage over Thanksgiving, and reported the hotel had to cap rooms at 60 percent. The hotel could not maintain sufficient staff available to service more. Having to do more without full staffing creates stress. How are local residents accepting the current Covid levels? Teachers? Health professionals?

I imagine the staffing issue is two pronged like it is almost anywhere else now for below median income jobs. Partly staff out with covid wave, partly a disconnect between wages offered and amount of people willing to work for that wage.

Getting into all the contributing factors for the latter would be getting too political, but I believe most employers arenít acknowledging the combination of recently retired and declining birth rate means thatís unlikely to go away soon. Tried to stop at Jimmy Johnís near a hospital and business center today and theyíre entirely closed on weekends now until further notice due to staffing. Employees getting overworked because of lack of coworkers means theyíre also more likely to quit...especially when thereís other jobs available promising greener pastures whether itís true or not.

I thought we'd get lockdowns at a 5% positivity rate. It's not March 2020 anymore. It's 22 months on.

There is now a growing consensus that driving the test positivity rate downwards of 3% should be a priority. The WHO initially suggested a positivity rate of around 3Ė12% as a general benchmark of adequate testing, and has most recently recommended that test positivity should remain at 5% or lower for 14 days before regions reopen.

Missed the location , where was there 52,000 infected and one death, maybe? it's over Chump. Throw away the masks, end the mandates, it's over. Anything else is just politics

In the United States, there were 523,246 newly reported COVID-19 cases and 3,362 newly reported COVID-19 deaths on Jan 21, 2022

Maybe somebody could ride around on city busses during rush hour and see if they are packed, or empty because of the pandemic.

TSA makes it clear on their website that Americans can be removed or suspended from the service "if you commit certain violations of federal security regulations, such as refusal to wear a mask in U.S. transportation systems covered by the January 31, 2021 Security Directive and subsequent amendments, assault, threat, intimidation, or interference with flight crew, physical or sexual assault or threat of physical or sexual assault of any individual on an aircraft, interference with security operations, access control violations, providing false or fraudulent documents, making a bomb threat, or bringing a firearm, explosive, or other prohibited item to an airport or onboard an aircraft, you are denied expedited screening for a period of time."

Only 3362 deaths for the day? This thing is so over. When will Mericans stop listening to the so-called experts and start getting their covid info here. There was no reason for the roughly 100,000 people who died last month to have even gotten sick. Don't they know this thing is over?
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
