    Inevitable. I've given up. Informative posts that educate? Relegated to the dungeon (while we are in the off season discussing whether we will even have a season). Personal opinions based on...

    I spent a good couple of years working in GU's ROTC office in the AD building (a secret few know). A captain and a major I had to answer to. I very much know I earned their respect, even with my...

    I had to go back in the thread on this one, because everything is just so egregiously wrong, I couldn't leave it alone. No disrespect, but disinformation can kill. I hope dearly you can find more...

    Yes, but. Cedars Sinai has shut down a ton of stuff. Ask any surgeon. Many clinical trials are halted that are not COVID related. I know that personally. These hospitals don't live in bubbles,...

    The ship wasn't used because it was sent with the stipulation that it would take non-COVID patients only. Huge mistake. While the brick and mortar hospitals were being overrun with COVID-19, a lot...

    Ooh, ohh, me, me. I can answer this one. Not everyone in a hospital deals with infectious disease. In fact, during normal times, a very, very small percentage do. Now that hospitals are getting...

    That's just...not...how it works. Regardless, the death rates are decreasing...except where they're not. Like from North Carolina stretching all the way across the southern U.S. to California. Ya...

    It's apparent you didn't even read the article, or notice all the links in it to original sources. Almost nothing in the article references the CDC, save for a few small ones. The "just some talk"...

    Treasure your Jesuit education...you learned critical thinking at a young age, which is "critically" important. Yes, I said a significant portion of the population wants to follow ON or OFF in terms...

    First off, I see that this thread had been delegated to the basement area of the forum. A sad outcome, since 1) It's the damn offseason and there's no reason to relegate threads, 2) It's a thread...

    It's regional, and yes, depends on conditions on the ground and in society in that locale. I don't know about seasonality although I would assume not, since that adds a time factor to the...

    It was a good post. The only clarification I would make is that R0 (nought) doesn't change over time. It's the reproductive number when all people are susceptible, i.e., at the start of an...

    Sure. Vaccines are a great way to make it manageable. We ain't got one this time, and it's on the higher end of contagousness.

    Seems like common sense, doesn't it? The problem is it's much more complicated than that. Firstly, the knowledge we have now is way better than what we knew then, particularly in Washington (since...
