They aren't wearing masks because they already don't trust you. Intentionally misleading/hyperbolical statements about how bad it is is the solution?

Fauci is coming unhinged from all the political attacks against him. He's not talking like a scientist anymore. Yesterday he was using the phrases like "worst nightmare" and "perfect storm" which is not scientific language nor is it true. This virus has a low R0 and a low fatality rate. "Worst nightmare" would be something with a high R0 value and high fatality rate. Like an airborne virus that is as contagious as measles but as deadly as bird flu with the stealthy characteristics of COVID.

13 mil infected (at least) and 580k killed (at least) with massive shutdowns and with some curve flattening. If that slope had kept growing exponentially?

People who dont trust fauci do so on terms that are completely irrelevant.

he did his job as a scientist and outlined how bad it is/could be. then your orange boyfriend told his followers, who are clearly ignorant of science, that fauci wasnt trustworthy.

so maybe fauci is trying to appeal to these lowest common denominators with language and rhetoric that they would listen to.

in all these situations, he is erring on the side of caution, which is definitely the mindset of a scientist.

the goal is public safety and he is still working toward that goal

but seriously, how does trumps dick taste? can you taste anything? do you have the rona because you didnt listen to a doctor, and instead chose to listen to a human pile of diarrhea?

Criticize Fauci for saying it’s serious.

Criticize those who criticize Trump for saying it’s mostly harmless.

Being a contrarian dipshit has to just be https://twitter.com/natesilver538/status/1283434043867049985?s=21

So this is still early days but these numbers are worth watching. And the Northern Hemisphere is almost certainly in for a terrible late fall/winter.

The people of Israel, the people of Australia, they're all very fine people, but I have been telling the world to wear a mask since this pandemic started. We have terrific masks here, and as you know I have always encouraged mask wearing. We're doing a much better job than any other country at controlling the China Virus.

Quote :
"An unpublished document prepared for the White House coronavirus task force and obtained by the Center for Public Integrity... recommends that 18 states in the coronavirus 'red zone' for cases should roll back reopening measures amid surging cases.

The 'red zone' is defined in the 359-page report as 'those core-based statistical areas (CBSAs) and counties that during the last week reported both new cases above 100 per 100,000 population, and a diagnostic test positivity result above 10%.'"

Quote :
"The report says the following 11 states are in the red zone for test positivity: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, South Carolina, Texas, Washington. The 11 states in the red zone for test positivity are also in the red zone for cases, with the exception of Washington state."

“If it doesn’t work, we’ll pull it back,” he added, as it’s easier to cut flights than to add them."


That's fucking stupid.

American Airlines has forced their workers to “voluntary” leaves of absence to get around not being able to start their layoffs until October. They are giving them like 20% pay or something and they can file for unemployment. So yeah that whole job protection component is working great....

I recently flew across the country on Southwest in order to keep my vacation I had planned. Once it came up in conversation, all the locals would ask how safe is flying right now. Honestly, I was a little on edge, but they are really trying hard to protect passengers. Enforced mask wearing on the plane. They are also leaving every middle seat open. Then you have AA still selling middle seats and asking employees to take voluntary time off. SW may have to do layoffs for the first time in its history.

There has been a plainly obvious disconnect between Fauci and Birx and this thread is interesting. The NYT piece was a hatchet job but I can’t quite figure out who was holding the hatchet.

Almost all local K-12 schools are pivoting to remote instruction for the first six to nine weeks.

Universities are now rolling for in person with distancing. But the UNC System Board has asked for specific plans for 25% and 50% budget cuts. Also they have decided they will be the only ones that can close a campus or pivot to remote instruction. It is not up to the local Chancellors anymore.

From Nighthawk is the Fauci credibility thread:

Quote :
"Open bottle of water in his lap and hanging out with his wife and brother in an empty stadium. They really don't need to wear them at all when sitting up there."


So yes, I would think his wife lives with him. His brother? Probably not, but perhaps part of an isolation pod? The things people choose to fixate on are so dumb. "OMG! Gotcha, Dr. Fauci! Pictured with a telephoto zoom lens temporarily unmasked while around close family members who ARE masked. COVID-19 clearly a hoax / PLANdemic!" Are we ignoring the fact that he's given many press conferences during the pandemic while not wearing a mask? So why is this one photo new ammunition to the conspiracy theorist crowd?

What's Alex Berenson's story? He strikes me as someone who craves the attention of his COVID-19 skeptic following, but I had never heard of him when he was a The New York Times reporter. Despite his aversion to COVID-19 alarmism, he apparently wrote an alarmist book about how marijuana use leads to psychosis and violence.

Its only a gotcha towards the people who think leaders should wear a mask for no reason just so people can see them wearing a mask. They can understand Fauci not having his mask on in a structured and safe environment so they understand the concept. In this case, no one talks about "setting an example". No one is asking "how many more Americans will die because people who believe in Fauci will have their mask off?". Of course not because that would be ridiculous.

Do you think Fauci is the only person who wants to take his mask off to talk with his brother? If even Fauci wants to take his mask off then, its reasonable to believe that the masses would prefer to not have the mask on. Maybe....masks are less comfortable than no mask and their absence is more than just a political game.

And yet the projected timing for availability for the general population hasn't really changed appreciably, and huge numbers of people are still going to die this winter. And Pfizer did this essentially independently.

^They released data in the middle of a study that created a stock market surge to coincide with the idea of Biden winning. Could just be another of many coincidences.

Also it looks like Cuomo and Deblasio have figured out how to solve COVID

Why aren't cities and states shutting down now? Why are they waiting for hospitals to overfill when its inevitable? Why are cities "asking people to stay home" but only shutting businesses down after 10pm? Why are they allowing restaurants to use the tent loophole where people dine inside enclosed tents? Why is a mask required to enter when you can take it off once you get inside?
