    Nearly 20% of young, healthy coronavirus patients hadn't recovered after 2 to 3 weeks, the CDC found — showing infection can cause 'prolonged illness'
    • COVID-19 patients with mild symptoms may still develop chronic illness related to the disease, a new CDC report found.
    • More than a third of patients surveyed said they hadn't returned to their usual state of health two to three weeks after they were tested.
    • That included nearly 20% of young, previously healthy respondents.
    Beyer, a 27-year-old who lives in Austin, Texas, is one of many young patients who have been sick with COVID-19 for months. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published Friday found that even patients with mild symptoms may develop chronic illness related to the disease.

    The CDC surveyed more than 270 symptomatic adults who tested positive for the virus between April 15 and June 25 but didn't need to be hospitalized. More than a third of those patients said they hadn't returned to their usual state of health two to three weeks after they were tested. Among young, previously healthy respondents — people ages 18 to 34 — the share of patients who hadn't recovered was nearly 20%.

    "Nonhospitalized COVID-19 illness can result in prolonged illness and persistent symptoms, even in young adults and persons with no or few chronic underlying medical conditions," the CDC researchers wrote.

    What a bonehead, not willing to be slightly inconvenienced for a short period of time to help fellow Americans...I don't say anything to people I see in public who are not wearing masks, saying something will do no good and only cause more problems than help...If the death count in Texas were in the thousands a day I bet he would wear one...

    ...

    A face mask is part of the ‘scamdemic,’ they say. But they’ll be happy to sell you one

    Amarillo, Texas — Don Caple won’t wear a mask. He doesn’t think they actually stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, and he’s pretty sure mask mandates are a “communistic move” by the government to see how much people are willing to give up their freedom.

    But if you’re in the market for a mask, does he have a deal for you. For only $10, he’ll sell you a face mask with a muscly President Trump depicted as a machine-gun-clutching Rambo. Or one with a Trump 2020 campaign slogan. Or one with the coiled rattlesnake from the Gadsden flag and the words “Don’t tread on me” replaced with “Don’t cough on me.”

    “They’re a hot-ticket-selling item,” said Caple, who sells masks from a Trump-themed trailer near the famed Cadillac Ranch art installation in Amarillo. “I don’t agree with it. But if they want to buy them, I’m not gonna argue.”

    I think the US nation-wide lockdown was a mistake. It has made everyone reluctant to do it again when it was unnecessary in many areas the first time around. The coronavirus epidemic is going to make its way through every state, city, town and county. The response to it must be at the smallest administrative unit feasible, because the severity of the epidemic is going to vary at that level.

    We had the same problem in the UK, with a crippling nation-wide lockdown to contain the virus in a few hotspots. The economies of many areas could have been kept more open and local lockdowns begun only when the epidemic arrived in force.

    A nationwide lockdown only makes sense if you intend to eradicate the virus within your country and then close your borders until the pandemic has passed, and you are also going to accept the economic damage that brings with it.

    Yes I have to agree with you, the first lock down in the US appears to have been a mistake, it wasn't even executed proper either and fallout from that has stymied efforts to get control of the virus spread currently...If we begin locking down certain states and/or regions where the hotshots of infection are we have to make sure there isn't any travel in or out of those affected areas, I mean 100 percent lock down...Some won't like that and retaliate as some have with wearing masks, however this masking wearing problem became one because of a lack of direction in the beginning of this pandemic and the failure of the US lock down previously...It really seems we have our backs against the wall now and there's no hope of stopping this virus from spreading like wildfire and we are going to watch tens of thousands more die as a result...

    There's people from the UK proclaiming on twitter that the pandemic has been over in the UK for weeks and they should not be forced to wear masks and practice social distancing...One the other hand people from the US proclaim the pandemic is all a scam and conspiracy for the NWO agenda...Astonishing, you know, I've always had this notion since I was young that I would live to see my 100th birthday, the way things are going this year I have wondered if humanity will survive another 100 years...

    Bus driver beaten with baseball bat after asking passengers to wear masks

    A San Francisco bus driver was allegedly beaten with a wooden baseball bat last week after asking three passengers to put on face masks to comply with the city’s coronavirus public health order.

    Three men boarded the bus operated by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency – or Muni -- in the city's South of Market neighborhood Wednesday afternoon, San Francisco Police Department Officer Robert Rueca said in a statement Friday. The driver asked the passengers multiple times to wear a mask but they refused, so the driver pulled over to let them off.

    “As the victim was escorting the males off the bus one of the males pulled out a wooden bat and struck the victim several times, which caused the victim to be injured," Rueca said. "The suspects fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction."

    Today is horrible with coronavirus related deaths really spiking near 1500, unbelievable when the federal government is barely aware enough to take notice, however I did see our paltry President wearing a mask, he ought to be telling the nation we all need to wear one...Both political sides are playing this pandemic as a political issue which is disgusting when so many people are dying from it...

    Now is a very bad time to get the virus. From the articles I have read, the amount of emergency beds at hospitals available is nearly exhausted. The stories of politicians who refuse to wear a mask and then get the Corona virus is disturbing. Rep. Gohmert from Texas got the virus and by accounts was face to face with other Representatives. Look for this a-hole to be spreading his sickness among the House of Representatives.

    If we review the situations in the four states that were of greatest concern at the beginning of the month, Arizona, California, Florida and Texas, we can see the following about the numbers of new cases:

    So it looks like the epidemic has peaked in each state. The situation is not good, but I don't think it is as bad as it was feared it might be (multiple New Yorks).

    New York peaked in early April at about 10K daily new cases. So Florida and Texas and California just became New-York-scale outbreaks.

    If you want to use case numbers (which are cases known to the medical system owing to positive tests) as your measure of epidemic severity. It is likely that a smaller fraction of infections were detected in the New York epidemic because it was in the early days.

    Covid-19: Why Hong Kong's 'third wave' is a warning
    By Helier Cheung, BBC News, 31 July 2020

    "Until recently, Hong Kong was considered a poster child in its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.
    Despite sharing a border with mainland China, where the first cases were reported, Hong Kong kept its infection numbers down and was able to avoid the extreme lockdown measures introduced in parts of China, Europe and the US.
    But now, it's been hit by not even a second, but a third, wave of infections. The government has warned its hospital system could face collapse, and it's just had a record high number of new infections in a day.
    What went wrong, and what lessons are there for countries juggling both the pandemic, and the economic pain caused by lockdown?..........

    Four Lessons From the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic

    "
    It wasn't until the fall, after a more virulent form of Spanish flu had emerged, that Washington, D.C., got tough. In the meantime, the absence of a federal response "left cities and states to go off on their own and make decisions for themselves." Nichols said many chose the economy over public health -- and they put off social distancing, with fateful results.

    While cities like Seattle and San Francisco ordered people to wear masks if they were out in public, many others did not. New York City never closed schools, contending they were cleaner than homes -- even though by October 1918, when deaths began to skyrocket, many cities did.

    According to Ewing, "There were a lot of inconsistencies."

    Two studies published in 2007 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the effect of health measures in more than 15 cities in 1918, including mask laws, business-hour restrictions, and the shuttering of schools, theaters, churches and dance halls.

    Both studies found that cities that acted earliest and most forcefully -- like St. Louis, which imposed a near total lockdown within two days of its first Spanish flu case -- had much lower peak death rates than cities that hedged their bets -- like New Orleans, Boston and Philadelphia.

    The point is not that social distancing is a total panacea, but that there's no "business-as-usual during a pandemic," Nichols said."

    "If public health is the main focus, then eradicate that from your mind," Nichols said. "The Spanish flu tells us that social distancing works. And it works best if we act early, act fast and stick together -- and base our decisions not on social or economic concerns, but on science and data and facts."

    U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has postponed easing lockdown restrictions in England.


    In an announcement made Friday, Prime Minister Johnson said that further easing of coronavirus restrictions will be delayed by at least two weeks. These restrictions were supposed to be eased starting this weekend, according to CNBC. New restrictions have been put into place for some locations in northern England after a new rise in coronavirus cases. Wedding receptions of up to 30 people will no longer be allowed starting in August along with bowling alleys and casinos remaining closed. Face coverings are expected to be mandated in more settings in England. The U.K. has almost 304,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.

    A Southern California gym that refused to shutdown amid orders, is now linked to a coronavirus cluster.

    The Pacific Beach gym in San Diego was forced to shut down after disobeying a county health order to close last week, according to CNN. The gym was told to close operations on July 23 but didn't shut down until July 27. It is unknown how many cases are connected to the gym, but health officials say an outbreak is considered three or more cases from different households. Businesses that violate the order are subject to a $1,000 fine. San Diego County has had over 28,000 confirmed coronavirus cases.

    First dog to test positive for coronavirus dies from COVID-19

    The first dog that tested positive for COVID-19 in the U.S. has died, The Hill reported. Buddy the German Shepard died on July 11. He lived in Staten Island, New York, with his family. He first began to struggle with his breathing in April and likely had lymphoma, according to National Geographic. The Mahoney family, who owned Buddy, said it was frustrating that experts did not look further into the possibility of there being a connection between the coronavirus and Buddy’s conditions. “You tell people that your dog was positive, and they look at you [as if you have] ten heads,” Allison Mahoney said. “[Buddy] was the love of our lives. ... He brought joy to everybody. I can’t wrap my head around it.”

    As a follow up: Rep. Gohmert now believes he got the Covid virus from the mask. This guy is clueless and should be banned from entering the Capitol building.

    More grim numbers, but not much worse thankfully, I hope the death counts do not spike much higher, we don't need a repeat of New York or Italy...
