Someone posted on these forums over the weekend a chart showing additional hospital bed use by state now compared to the same period last year, and if I recall there is not a huge increase

Probably me .... in one of the So Dakota threads

The surge is happening in St. Mary's too. It's not about absolute numbers when trying to keep people safe, it's the trends.

*Data pulled on November 15, 2020 *
To put the Maryland numbers in perspective: 165,930 total positives since we began counting.
124,409 is total for PG, Mont, Bal, and AA.
The remaining 18 counties total 41,521.
St. Mary's is 1,731 and Calvert is 1,365 of that number.

Total MD population: 6,083,120
St. Mary's population: 113,166
Calvert population: 93,279

11/15/2020: St. Mary's is 1,731 and Calvert is 1,365 *0 new deaths
11/16/2020: St. Mary's 1,749 (+18), Calvert 1,373 (+8) *0 new deaths
11/17/2020: St. Mary's 1,771 (+22), Calvert 1,388 (+15) *0 new deaths

If I may ...
If I may ...

Because people that are drinking alcohol and buzzed are most likely to brush off the social distancing and mask guidelines.
If those masks really worked, then the armed forces could decommission all that expensive Biowarfare equipment such as the M17 protective masks and so forth!

When they're drunk, yes :otter: :lmao:
Most people who spend a lot of time in bars are what I call professional drunks.
They go to the bars every day, they may blow a .08 at 7 AM when they wake up in the morning.
They stay that way most of the day but they seldom show signs of being drunk
It's the amateurs that get drunk.

Oregon County Sheriff and DA Draw the Thin, Blue Line: They Will Not Enforce Criminal Penalties For China Virus Violations [UPDATE: More Counties Refuse COVID Lockdown Order]


Last week, Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D-Portland) ordered a new set of lockdowns in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19, the virus unleashed upon the world by the Chinese Communist Party. Restrictions include no more than six people in one’s home (covering Thanksgiving gatherings), restrictions on capacity in retail stores, the closure of gyms and indoor activities, and restaurants restricted to take-out only. Brown also announced she will coordinate with Oregon State Police and local law enforcement to charge violators with a misdemeanor, subjecting them to possible jail time and/or fines. One Oregon County has announced that it will not participate in criminal enforcement of Brown’s lockdown orders.

Linn County is located in the central Willamette Valley in Oregon, a little south of Salem. In a post on Facebook, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Linn County DA, noted many businesses there are hanging on by a thread, their role is not to count how many individuals are at a private residence, and they will not interfere with any religious organization. “We understand the realities of Covid-19,” they said, “but we draw the line when we are dealing with decisions relating to individual residences, religion, or businesses.”

“We are going to continue to educate citizens, as needed,” they said, “and that is where we will stop. We trust citizens to assess risk and take precautions as appropriate given their individual circumstances. We are not going to criminally enforce the COVID-19 restrictions contained in the Governor’s order.”

Newsom Wanted Snitches to Turn in Thanksgiving 'Scofflaws' But Several California Sheriffs Say They Will Not Comply


But despite the alarm bells, which we’ve all heard before, sheriffs, in ever-growing numbers, apparently believe that enforcing Thanksgiving dinner and COVID curfews doesn’t make much sense when they’re freeing prisoners because of COVID.

The Sacramento police and sheriff departments said they won’t enforce Newsom’s new orders — even in the seat of the state capital.

Newsom issued a ban on “non-essential businesses” and personal gatherings in the 41 of California’s 58 counties in the so-called “purple tier” – the worst category in the state’s new color-coded coronavirus alert system. Newsom also imposed a one-month-long 10 p.m. – 5 a.m. curfew that is scheduled to end on December 21st.

Orange, Riverside, and Los Angeles County Sheriffs have all announced they will not be the Thanksgiving police. Orange County Sheriff Dan Barnes put it this way:

Let me be clear – this is a matter of personal responsibility and not law enforcement. Orange County Sheriff’s deputies will not be dispatched to, or respond to, calls for service to enforce compliance with face coverings, social gatherings or stay-at-home orders only. Deputies will respond to calls for potential criminal behavior and for protection of life or property.

Further, the ruling suggested that any forced quarantine applied to healthy people could be a violation of their fundamental right to liberty.

Most importantly, the judges ruled that a single positive PCR test cannot be used as an effective diagnosis of infection.

The specifics of the case concern four tourists entering the country from Germany – all of whom are anonymous in the transcript of the case – who were quarantined by the regional health authority. Of the four, only one had tested positive for the virus, whilst the other three were deemed simply of “high infection risk” based on proximity to the positive individual. All four had, in the previous 72 hours, tested negative for the virus before departing from Germany.

In their ruling, judges Margarida Ramos de Almeida and Ana Paramés referred to several scientific studies.

Most notably this study by Jaafar et al., which found that – when running PCR tests with 35 cycles or more – the accuracy dropped to 3%, meaning up to 97% of positive results could be false positives.

The ruling goes on to conclude that, based on the science they read, any PCR test using over 25 cycles is totally unreliable.

Governments and private labs have been very tight-lipped about the exact number of cycles they run when PCR testing, but it is known to sometimes be as high as 45. Even fearmonger-in-chief Anthony Fauci has publicly stated anything over 35 is totally unusable.

There are a couple of guys having a protest at the corner Wawa at 235/St. Andrews this morning. They are carrying signs reading that the masks are about control and that the sheeple need to wake up.
