    I could be wrong but aren't you one of the guys that kept propping up Sweden as some great example of how to handle this pandemic?

    I literally just got back from DC this Sunday and flew in and out of Dulles. It was packed.

    Packed...hmm
    I visit my brother in Honolulu every Christmas and had ZERO idea when I bought my tickets in June...that I'd be heading into the winter months unsure whether the trip was a good idea or not. I don't particularly relish the idea of spending 7 hours in a tube at 30,000 ft with 300 strangers in a NORMAL year, let alone now. Did it feel safe, questionable, scary, what? If ANYone is filling middle seats by December (maybe they already are) it'd be any flight overseas.

    My wife and I had purchased tickets to go to Hawaii but had to postpone due to covid, but they are only redeemable for up to a year so we have to decide whether to go to Hawaii in April or not.

    Did it feel safe? The Airport itself everyone tried their best to keep a reasonable distance and wore masks, but the plane itself was about 1/3 full, but because all the passengers are cheap bastards like myself who bought economy tickets, they crammed us all together in the back the of the plane.

    FDA Approves First Treatment for COVID-19


    Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration*approved*the antiviral drug Veklury (remdesivir) for use in adult and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older and weighing at least 40 kilograms (about 88 pounds) for the treatment of COVID-19 requiring hospitalization. Veklury should only be administered in a hospital or in a healthcare setting capable of providing acute care comparable to inpatient hospital care. Veklury is the first treatment for COVID-19 to receive FDA approval.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    I'd rather have an effective antiviral than an effective vaccine.

    The coronavirus is spreading more rapidly in rural areas of the U.S. than in urban areas. But one rural state continues to do a fabulous job keeping the virus away: Vermont (often laughingly referred to by the right wing as “The People’s Republic of Vermont”.) The starkest sign of Vermont’s success is that it has not recorded a single Covid-19 death in more than two months.

    Vermont is succeeding partly because it has not allowed the virus to become a partisan issue. The Republican governor, Phil Scott — unlike many other Republican politicians around the country — has consistently told people to take the virus seriously. “He started wearing a mask early in the pandemic and has stood at the back of the room in many of the state’s coronavirus briefings, letting Dr. Mark Levine, Vermont’s answer to Dr. Anthony Fauci, dominate proceedings,” Bill McKibben, a Vermont resident, wrote in The New Yorker.

    Vermont also benefits from having a high degree of social trust among its residents, and Vermont has two strong local media organizations — VTDigger and Seven Days — that keep residents informed and that both took an intriguing step early in the pandemic, McKibben notes: They shut down their comments sections, to prevent misinformation from spreading.

    EDIT: There are some resonable Republicans left in the country (at least here in New England).

    We set a new record going back to July for new daily cases. Why won’t this country take this **** seriously?

    it's not fully as simple as that.......the pandora's box has been opened and containing a released virus is like cat herding X a million

    not that taking it more seriously isn't called for, just saying it will STILL take some time even if we did
