https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202006/10/WS5ee054d4a310834817252191.html

#WASHINGTON - At least 28 US states are not following US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines on reporting new #COVID-19 cases, half of which saw the trend of new cases increasing in the last week, #CNN reported on Tuesday.

Those states are not reporting probable cases, according to the daily case count listed on the CDC's website.

Probable cases are those in which a patient either meets "#clinical criteria" and "#... Show more...

So....L.A. is wanting to cut $150M (10%) of their #police budget as an apology to the black community. But.... #California has some of the strictest #gun #laws in the country (read: "criminals can have guns, but law abiding citizens cannot"). Anyway, the way I see it:

less police funding + #disarmed citizens + #rioting + #looting = ?

sounds like a recipe for #chaos. :) My solution? :

less police funding + loosen gun laws so good guys can be armed = less rioting, and less looting.

Keep the cops in their station like firemen. They can come when they are called.

Mandatory #Masks – Lake county, #California


In Lake county, California (just north of Napa county), a popular regional recreation area, with a large retirement population, and a total population of 64,000, as of 2020 05 25, there are a total of 14 cases—yes, fourteen cases of Covid19, and 0 deaths—yes, zero deaths.

And now the county "Health Officer" has decided it is necessary to mandate mask wearing "when entering local businesses and facilities", and that this order "will remain in effect until further notice."
Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.

L.A. Riots of 1992 started today, 28 years ago. Looking at the city today, the only thing keeping the fuse off is the threat of COVID-19. The same racist, classist, sexist, anti-black bullshit we had back in 1992 is still here but intensified by gentrification & all it brings.

Interesting study on SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing in Santa Clara, California
The population prevalence of SARS-CoV-2antibodies in Santa Clara County implies that the infection is much more widespread than indicated by the number of confirmed cases.

We can use our prevalence estimates to approximate the infection fatality rate from COVID-19 in Santa Clara County. As of April 10, 2020, 50 people have died of COVID-19 in the County, with an average increase of 6% daily in the number of deaths. If our estimates of48,000-81,000 infections represent the cumulative total on April 1, and we project deaths to April 22 (a 3 week lag from time of infection to death22), we estimate about 100 deaths in the county. A hundred deaths out of 48,000-81,000 infections corresponds to an infection fatality rate of 0.12-0.2%.
April 22 is just three days away, let us see if their stats were right.
