CDC report: Bars/dining out increases risk of contracting coronavirus more than other activities

Exactly what the Koreans said all those months ago... the same issue here, we seem to have to learn from our own mistakes not others.
... Make sure you live before you die.

Snake used as face mask on bus

Apparently the bus organisation says this is not a valid face covering

Hint: US has no plan and no clue.

I try not to read the news these days, but some days I slip up and do it anyway....

Quote
Mr. Trump publicly slapped down Dr. Robert R. Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as the president promised that a vaccine could be available in weeks and go “immediately” to the general public while diminishing the usefulness of masks despite evidence to the contrary... Mr. Trump lashed out just hours after Dr. Redfield told a Senate committee that a vaccine would not be widely available until the middle of next year and that masks were so vital in fighting the disease caused by the coronavirus, Covid-19, that they may even more important than a vaccine.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/16/us/politics/trump-cdc-covid-vaccine.html

One thing in all this is that as important as masks and vaccines is cheap, rapid testing. Many epidemiologists say that is actually more important than either for safely opening schools, traveling, visiting family and the like. The FDA approved the Abbott Labs rapid test on August 26.

https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/covid-19-update-fda-authorizes-first-diagnostic-test-where-results-can-be-read-directly-testing-card

That could be huge, especially if they can ramp up well past 50,000,000 tests per month, but I suspect this is not being talked about more widely by government officials because of the president's hostility to testing.

herd mentality

We're actually in deep sh## at the moment.  Trump has stopped listening to the doctors in the CDC and instead is listening to a Fox News quack (Scott Atlas) who is pushing for herd immunity.  The White House is pushing for states to drop their mask mandates.  His followers are probably going to start having 'covid parties".

Spain & France on the uptick, too.  Looks like the oft-predicted Fall resurgence is starting to kick in.

"We conclude that the risk for on-board transmission of SARS-CoV-2 during long flights is real and has the potential to cause COVID-19 clusters of substantial size, even in business class--like settings with spacious seating arrangements"

Yet another flip-flop!

CDC says it erroneously posted guidance that said coronavirus spreads through air and travels beyond 6 feet
