Isn't Novak an antivaxer too?
This event was not held in line with the Serbian govt guidelines on social distancing, and Montenegro cancelled their leg after seeing how things had gone down in Belgrade on the first weekend.Even though I also see responsibility with the governments of Serbia and Croatia. If they allow events to go ahead without any precautions, it means in the long run they might have done more harm to the re-take up of sports than if they had demanded rules like most other countries that are starting to allow first sports and other events again.
Oh ok, the German articles I read gave the impression that there actually were no social distancing rules in Serbia anymore and it therefor was allowed to hold the event like this...but it seems rather odd that he was able to use/rent a big tennis court like that with a big audience without having to get a permission for holding such a big event anywhere? Even private event venues here can't operate without the approval of the the city or the regularity authority.This event was not held in line with the Serbian govt guidelines on social distancing, and Montenegro cancelled their leg after seeing how things had gone down in Belgrade on the first weekend.
Also from the article:I sense a bit of sarcasm in the following report but maybe I just don't understand Arizona-talk.
Dream City Church, the north Phoenix megachurch set to host a Donald Trump rally on June 23, claims it has solved the ********* problem in its auditorium, making it safe for anyone who wants to attend.
In a video posted on Sunday, Senior Pastor Luke Barnett and Chief Operations Officer Brendon Zastrow announce happily that the church has installed a new air-purification system that kills 99.9 percent of the ********. The technology, they say, was developed by members of the church.
The flu swabs also have a similar false negative rate as the current plague's. It's highly likely that many of these people who felt miserable with flu-like illnesses late fall/winter pre-********* and tested negative for flu were false negatives. I remember seeing a mom and 3 kids who all had flu-like symptoms. 3 of the 4 were positive. Realistically, the kid who tested negative had it as well but statistically, it was about right.I wonder about the mysterious "vaping pneumonia" illnesses and deaths of young people earlier this year? December, January when we were anxious about all the vaping illnesses?
My son lives in Denver, his girlfriend works at Denver International airport, around that time vaping pneumonia crisis in January had a horrible viral infection (fever, cough, chest pain/tightness, muscle pain, fatigue). My son got it from her and called me several times a day wanting to know what to do. I suggested urgent care but he was too "tired" to go. They both wonder if they had *********, especially since she had contact with lots of international travelers before the restrictions were in place.
Just wait til Disney opens.........Howard Forman (radiologist and professor) predicted on Twitter that we may be seeing 50K new cases a day within 2 weeks. He said the CV positive test rate in Orlando, FL, right now is 16.5%. Scary.
False positives on the nasal/nasopharyngeal swabs to diagnose it are exceptionally rare. They're PCR/molecular tests and you just don't see many false positives. I think they're something like 99% specific. False negatives is a different story... The antibody tests will have a higher risk of cross reactivity with regular coronaviruses that cause common colds.There was a posthumous false positive in Rockhampton, Queensland, which had people very puzzled because the deceased had had no contact with anyone who might have passed on the lurgi. A second test was returned negative and he was removed from the official count; the theory, last I heard, was that the original positive test picked up another bug similar enough to the lurgi that it registered on the test. Something similar may be happening in other false positive cases.
If you read the article all the way through, it's not quite as bad as it seems, but given Florida's recent history of fudging numbers, this is not the best approach they could have taken.
Amid a surge in Florida ******** cases, Gov. Ron DeSantis‘ administration is changing the guidelines for hospitals’ reporting of intensive-care beds in the state Emergency Status System, or ESS.
In a phone call with hospital providers this week, Florida Surgeon General Scott Rivkees, who’s also the secretary of the Department of Health, said he no longer wants hospitals to report to the state the number of patients in intensive-care unit beds.
Instead, Rivkees said he only wants hospitals to report the number of patients in those beds who require what he described as an “intensive level of care.”
The change could reduce the number of occupied ICU beds being reported to the state.
Yeah, but it's ridiculous. You can't enforce this whole 'wear a mask everywhere' but continue to keep restaurants and clubs open where people mingle in close quarters with DJs playing or dancing or whatever-- and they are NOT wearing masks. Yet when going down the street you NEED to wear a mask?So now Ron de Santis, Greg Abbott, Rick Scott and the Miami mayor are telling people they need to wear a mask. Trump meltdown in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...
Universal (which yah I know not as popular as Disney but still huge) has actually been open for about 2 weeks now! And I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s not all locals. So people will take YKW back with them. Disney isn’t set to reopen for 3 weeks or so, but I wonder what will happen if things keep heading in the direction they are.Just wait til Disney opens.........
Some Disney cast members are starting a petition to stop reopening so we’ll see. There will definitely be people taking a “souvenir” home to their local communities.Universal (which yah I know not as popular as Disney but still huge) has actually been open for about 2 weeks now!

This. There’s major ********* fatigue. It’s understandable but I went grocery shopping today and I was one of few people wearing masks. I’d say less than 10%. And this is in SC where cases are increasing big time as things reopen. I’m thankful that my small social circle feels the same way I do and is still social distancing and wearing masks when we go out for essentials. It makes me hopeful we can reward our efforts with a backyard BBQ birthday party to make up for all the ones we’ve celebrated via Zoom soon!It seems that when I thought Governor Newsom wasn't giving daily briefings anymore, I was wrong. It's just that the tv stations are not airing them. This upsets me greatly because it makes it seem like it's all over when it's not.
