So, active cases number went down. From over 5000 to 4 668 . I wonder why this number is being ignored. To me - this is very important number.

So there was an Eric Church concert at Rogers where not many wearing a mask during show(I wasn’t there not my type of music, just going off what I see online) could be a super spreader but I hope not..

It makes me mad when I see others not wearing masks at events.  We have an indoor mask mandate in WA state regardless of vaccination status, and then I see others not wearing masks.  Besides seeing this in person, I see it on TV as well.  I really doubt they are consistently eating or drinking for long periods of time.

its not a particularly reliable number, it relies on people going for testing. Hospitalization rates are the best indicator.

My wife went to that with some friends, no distancing at all, no masks other than in the concourse and they didnt scan the passports on the way in, they only looked at it and the persons id. I wouldnt be surprised at all if there were a lot of cases coming from that show

No word on measures to alleviate the horse dewormer shortage?

 

Didn't the head of CNN apologize to Joe Rogan for calling a drug that's FDA approved for human use and prescribed to humans as a horse dewormer?  Only for CNN to cut out that part from the footage that they showed on their show?  

 

I haven't watched Rogan since the first month of his podcast but I caught that bit and it really wasn't a good look for CNN.

So they gaslighted a form of treatment that could have been helping people?

 

Not sure if I'm reading this correctly.

Keep in mind that no matter what, we don't really know how many active cases there actually are. There's going to be people who get covid and not get tested. This could be due to then mistaking covid for something else. This could be due to them just immediately self-isolating without getting tested. This could be due to them not even having symptons. In any of those cases, those people are not going to count towards those numbers in the end.

It helps people with parasites.  Its use for treating Covid is inconclusive at best.  Clinical trials are underway to determine its efficacy.  The reality is that there are a whole lot of hogs running out to get their hands on Ivermectin and getting any source they could because real doctors, not hack doctors, were not prescribing a drug for something it wasn't proven to treat.  A drug that has side effects.   A lot of these people swear that the vaccines are poison.  They don't work.  They're "experimental".  Yet virtually all their objections to the vaccines apply in this case.

Yes, I'm aware of this talking point as it has been discussed (and mocked) in this thread alone dozens of times.

 

This is what I was referring to.

I don't anything about the treatment other then the fact that CNN framed it intentionally as an animal product to slander Joe Rogan when it was in fact an anti-viral drug prescribed to humans. 

 

Imagine someone saying that you're feeding your children horse food when you give them oatmeal. 

 

Pfizer is one of the main financial backers of CNN though, so it's really not that surprising.  

 

I'd also like to thank Pfizer for their money spent on indirect advertising over the years in bolstering their public confidence as I felt good when I was getting my shots. I was prepared to run away from the clinic if I saw AstroZeneca or Moderna :lol:

Yeah but the way that CNN handled the whole issue was really eye opening. 

Start out by slandering someone that wasn't advocating for it but stated that they used it. Then send someone in to prove a point only to have them retract from their position and apologize. 

Then finally completely cut out those important parts on CNN and make a mockery of the whole situation.  

 

I'd highly recommend checking out the entire 20 minute segment, unedited.

Especially the vaccinated population that is not going to have any significant symptoms, on average.  

 

 

One thing that I haven't liked at all have been the numbers being thrown out that show how many new cases are in the vaccinated vs unvaccinated population.  It has really driven the anger in the large vaccinated population towards this shrinking unvaccinated number and throwing all the blame on them.  This mostly happened about 2-3 months ago. 

 

Very bad science/statistics that is overlooking some extremely important factors. In fact I wouldn't even call it statistics, more along the lines of political playing with numbers.  

 

It's just the latest in this erosion of logic and sound science in the public discourse. Current Vaccine hesitancy is a symptom of it as well. I don't remember people being this afraid of vaccines in the 80s and 90s. 

 

 I cannot condone lying to combat lying by the other side.

Last thing that I will say for now is to look at the amount of hate and vitriol that has been directed at Travis Hamonic over the last two months.  

 

Some people have made it their be-all end-all if someone is vaccinated or not. 

 

Hamonic has helped hundreds of kids and families who have lost a parent over the years. That apparently pales in comparison to whether or not he is vaccinated.

Wasn't Joe Rogan the one who said he didn't need to be vaccinated because his immune system works? The same guy who mocked masks? Then he gets covid and takes every medication under the sun to prevent himself from dying? Medications that are not available to the majority of peons that hang on his every word? Perhaps if he apologizes for spreading misinformation first then you'd have a leg to stand on.

 

We all know what ivermectin is for. If you don't you've been living under a rock. People call it horse dewormer to mock the idiots who are using it to treat covid as there is no verified proof that it works. Oh, and as far as I know, it is an anti-parasitic, not an antiviral medication.

I think you are just repeating all the talking points from CNN. 

 

Why would I know what ivermectin is? 

I couldn't care less about medicine, my point is how much twisting of the words there was with CNN and the way they covered that story.
