The renewed “outbreaks” are nearly all happening in cities that allowed the
riots protests following the media hype of the George Floyd death while resisting arrest. Most other areas (especially rural) are not experiencing the “upsurge”.
The media is telling us that the hospitals in those cities Intensive Care units are “at 90% capacity”…thing is, on a NORMAL day, those same hospitals are generally at over 85% capacity level, as this is where the hospital is profitable. If they are at 50%, the facility is losing money. There isn’t a lot of spare capacity just waiting around for someone.
She pointed out that the “Upsurge” in cases oddly didn’t happen (or at least wasn’t REPORTED by the media) until shortly after the stock market began a record level of increase, moving quickly back towards economic recovery, with the market moving rapidly (V-Shaped Recovery?) Then the Media began telling us about the increase in cases….when the increase had begun a week before. And in most places, the upswing, while worrying, is not anywhere near the infection or hospitalizaton levels of a month or 6 weeks ago.
Finally, Masks: (ETA: It was pointed out to me that the linked article no longer says what it did when I posted this…apparently the videos and the article have been memory-holed)
Cloth masks don’t help the wearer. Even most medical masks don’t really help the wearer that much. Medical masks are designed to prevent the wearer from spreading droplets of spittle that may contain virii or bacteria onto a compromised patient.
Studies show that a bandanna or a two-layer cloth mask pretty much does nothing to stop the aerosolized droplets from a human mouth or nose carried in their breath….in other words, they are useless. It takes more than 4 layers to do much good. Also the same simulation shows that an unprotected sneeze or cough can let the droplets travel as far as 12 feet, making the current spacing..IE “Social Distancing” of 6 feet….pretty much bullshit. And in air that is moving, say in an air-conditioned building, it may travel 17-20 feet or more.
So in other words, unless we are all wearing cone style medical or industrial masks or 4 or more layers of cloth, the current masks and distancing are simply a waste of time. Most cloth masks are only slightly more useful than nothing at all.
Which is why the medical folks (and Dr (clueless) Fauci) originally stated that “Masks are useless”.
