Now it's our turn.

New Mexico, surrounded as we were with COVID 'hot spots', somehow managed to survive the last six or so months.

OK, some problems on 'Indian lands' in the far North-West corner and more than a few nursing home wipe-outs, but for a long time single digit infections in our zip code with all the problems miles away.

Gonna break 100 in our zip code within the week and a record 800+ infections recorded just yesterday (we test a lot, 8000 a day of late).

Hospitalizations have doubled in just the last three weeks (160 is a lot for a state of 2 million). 300 hospitalized and we are pretty much DONE.

And it ain't the tourists from Texas this time. It's 'small family gatherings' which, with four centuries of Catholicism, is pretty hard to curb.

No excuses should we perish from the plague. We have no real need to expose ourselves. Curbside grocery pickup is available at our favorite grocery store, barber does house calls and cuts hair outside and we live far from our nearest neighbors (who are old and have their own health worries) so if Ivan disappears from these boards it was his or his 'social butterfly' wife's fault.

Looks like it's worldwide, in fact.

The problem is not that there is evil in the world, the problem is that there is good. Because otherwise, who would care?

I befriended a friend from Mexico who helped me with some Home Depot projects around the house before this whole thing began. He said his entire family there "disappeared".

As far as going away, I'm not coming back to this planet, I've observed enough.

Totals are from yesterday. Click the link below, scroll down to the table, choose Yesterday (as "Now" is not fully updated for the current day). Like a spread sheet, you can click at the top of any column to sort on it.

Our Colorado Governor tightened things up again just yesterday in hopes of preventing a cootie explosion as being experienced in other states - the usual suspects that have been in the top 5 or so for several months on end.

Sorted by new cases [as of end of day Oct-16-2020]:

What would that be in California with its 40 million population?

16 thousand new cases a day?

US,with 340 million is 'only' averaging 200 new cases per million population.

Yep, badder even than ZZ Top.

Over 1,000,000 people dead from COVID worldwide.

I return to (private) school Tuesday (after seven months) with only three classes for Extended Care, maybe a dozen kids max.
Three more grades added every two weeks until everyone that's coming back makes it back.
Also offering simultaneous at home instruction, gonna be messy.

My wife is taking a LOA due to pre existing conditions.

Our friends mother (in ICU with COVID for a month) finally was released to Heaven on Thursday.

She suffered immensely, may she Rest in Peace.

Numbers are up slightly here, but SF has been pretty smart and safe overall.

Had a COVID test Thursday (easy, quick, painless as could be) and have the green light.

My wife and I have a bet that out school will be open until Dec. 1, that the
latest surge (combined with flu) will close everything down again.

Then we start over.

Hang in there Ivan, do what you know works.

I have the actual CDC directive telling people to lie on death certificate. That is 200,000 did not die from this and some estimates are below 10,000.

So if you get infected maybe nothing happens. Maybe you need a nap and some real chicken soup. Maybe you need those drugs. If you have one foot in the grave, hell the flu could have killed you.

Don't sweat it. I am not saying ignore it but don't shut down your life over this shit.

"Almost 90 years later, in 2008, researchers announced they'd discovered what made the 1918 flu so deadly: A group of three genes enabled the virus to weaken a victim's bronchial tubes and lungs and clear the way for bacterial pneumonia."

So most didn't really die of the flu virus either. It was all a fraud! Fake news, fake flu pandemic!

"I have the actual CDC directive telling people to lie on death certificate."

Would love to get a copy of this. Any chance you can post a link, pic, pdf?

My only reason is to get to the truth about the death reports. There are a lot of scared to paranoid people who need to know the truth! I have friends in the medical field who have said similar to this.
Ie- A person dies of a heart attack and Covid19 is written on Death Cert as the cause. They may have posthumously tested positive but had no symptoms. Apparently its rumored hospitals get paid for Covid19 deaths? Guess with the shutdowns its the only way to get revenue?

...it basically just states what we're all seeing. Pandemic fear has been replaced by pandemic fatigue. People are just getting tired--tired of the restrictions, tired of being stuck at home with their kids (not being in school), tired of not being able to see/gather with family/friends, tired of not working/earning an income. And we all know what fatigue does--makes people "sloppy". Not necessarily "willfully reckless", but careless.

Gone are the days of the "rah-rah" support (and hazard pay/bonuses) for front-line workers that provided critical services during the beginning of the pandemic. No more #alonetogether ad-campaigns splattered across all forms of the media. And gov't money?--that pretty-much dried-up in August, so a LOT of people are "on their own", and being forced to make HARD decisions.

...nor does it step-into the hot steaming piles spewed by all sides of "the blame game"--and there is plenty of "blame" to go around from all angles, but it's all pretty-much irrelevant, at this point. Could thing have been handled differently?--certainly. Would it have really helped?--no one will ever know, so focus people!

For every person out there that is mourning the loss of a family member, friend, or loved one, if only we had "grabbed the bull by the horns", so to speak, there is an equal number of people that claim that they wouldn't be losing their homes or businesses/livelihoods, and having to get groceries from a food-bank, if we hadn't done what little we actually did.

The article is about human/social behavior/attitude, and how that is changing as the pandemic continues to wear-on. Even those that faithfully followed the recommendations of health experts from the very beginning are growing weary of the current "new normal", and (to a certain extent) "giving up".

I know I've been "close to the edge" on several occasions. Just saying "fuck-it--I'm tired of living like this"--but I'm a little brighter than that, so I still religiously wear a mask, still have sanitizer and gloves with me at all times, don't dine-out/hit the bars, and continue to limit my interaction with others. I'd like to visit (in person), some of my family and close friends, but still won't risk it--for all of our sakes.

But OTOH--I'm retired, so my income/employment-status hasn't been dramatically affected, I don't have a house-full of bored/screaming kids to deal with every day, and I'm "isolating" on 13+ acres--not in a tiny apartment in the city. I don't know how long I could deal with any/all of those conditions, and feel bad for those that are forced to--and have been for months, with no clear end in sight.

I think that this "CDC Directive" is in the same category that Donnie's taxes are in. In other words: you are not going to see it.
