    Why are you so insecure?
    You're the one projecting your weight problem on other people.

    That illustrates your insecurity, not mine.

    I'm asking you why you feel that's an effective dig at people.

    Well?

    I don't have a weight problem.

    Obesity is the #1 risk factor.

    The second is fear and anxiety. Sorry Whinehole.

    You have definitely had one and are prone to having one again.

    Why do you think projecting that on other people is such an effective insult?

    I'm pretty much anxiety-free, thanks for caring. I've seldom been better.

    My current events mania isn't based on fear or anxiety, believe it or not. Frequent posting/responding helps me remember things and think through them. For me this forum is kind of like a notepad.

    Florida massaging the numbers to make things look somewhat better.

    As cases ballooned in August, however, the Florida Department of Health changed the way it reported death data to the CDC, giving the appearance of a pandemic in decline, an analysis of Florida data by the Miami Herald and el Nuevo Herald found.

    On Monday, Florida death data would have shown an average of 262 daily deaths reported to the CDC over the previous week had the health department used its former reporting system, the Herald analysis showed. Instead, the Monday update from Florida showed just 46 “new deaths” per day over the previous seven days.

    Only a lunatic would take the boosters if healthy.

    It ain't all about hospitalization and death. Chronic, COVID-related disability still gets short shrift

    When I first spoke with Akrami, last year, she was on day 76 of her symptoms. This year, I called her on day 526. She has improved enough to take “long” half-hour walks without crashing—in the gaps between monthly relapses that completely incapacitate her for a week. Many long-haulers partially recover after a few months, or learn to manage their symptoms. But some “first-wavers” are still dealing with cycles of serious illness. Through 2020’s spring, summer, and winter surges, Donald Trump’s departure and Joe Biden’s arrival, the vaccine rollout and Delta’s ascent, they’ve been struggling to work, concentrate, or exercise. Many have been told by medical professionals that they’re just having anxiety or making up their symptoms.

    Huge trial on community masking in Bangladesh.

    Surgical mask>cloth masks, but both seemed to reduce the incidence of symptomatic COVID-19.



    Methods: We conducted a cluster-randomized trial of community-level mask promotion inrural Bangladesh from November 2020 to April 2021 (N=600 villages, N=342,126 adults).We cross-randomized mask promotion strategies at the village and household level, includingcloth vs. surgical masks. All intervention arms received free masks, information on the importance of masking, role modeling by community leaders, and in-person reminders for 8 weeks.The control group did not receive any interventions. Neither participants nor field staff wereblinded to intervention assignment. Outcomes included symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence (primary) and prevalence of proper mask-wearing, physical distancing, and symptomsconsistent with COVID-19 (secondary). Mask-wearing and physical distancing were assessedthrough direct observation at least weekly at mosques, markets, the main entrance roads tovillages, and tea stalls. At 5 and 9 weeks follow-up, we surveyed all reachable participantsabout COVID-related symptoms. Blood samples collected at 10-12 weeks of follow-up forsymptomatic individuals were analyzed for SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies.

    Results: There were 178,288 individuals in the intervention group and 163,838 individualsin the control group. The intervention increased proper mask-wearing from 13.3% in controlvillages (N=806,547 observations) to 42.3% in treatment villages (N=797,715 observations)(adjusted percentage point difference = 0.29 [0.27, 0.31]). This tripling of mask usage was sustained during the intervention period and two weeks after. Physical distancing increased from24.1% in control villages to 29.2% in treatment villages (adjusted percentage point difference= 0.05 [0.04, 0.06]). After 5 months, the impact of the intervention faded, but mask-wearingremained 10 percentage points higher in the intervention group.The proportion of individuals with COVID-like symptoms was 7.62% (N=13,273) in theintervention arm and 8.62% (N=13,893) in the control arm. Blood samples were collectedfrom N=10,952 consenting, symptomatic individuals. Adjusting for baseline covariates, the2intervention reduced symptomatic seroprevalence by 9.3% (adjusted prevalence ratio (aPR) =0.91 [0.82, 1.00]; control prevalence 0.76%; treatment prevalence 0.68%). In villages randomized to surgical masks (n = 200), the relative reduction was 11.2% overall (aPR = 0.89 [0.78,1.00]) and 34.7% among individuals 60+ (aPR = 0.65 [0.46, 0.85]). No adverse events werereported.

    Conclusions: Our intervention demonstrates a scalable and effective method to promote maskadoption and reduce symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infections.

    Help me Jesus, help me! Will these nutjobs ever learn?

    A church camp didn’t require vaccinations or masks. It’s now linked to 180 covid cases, CDC says.

    An Illinois church camp for teenagers and an affiliated men’s conference that did not mandate masks or require attendees to be vaccinated or tested for the coronavirus have been linked to at least 180 covid-19 infections, according to new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Interesting. For the 50 year and younger population there was no statistically significant decrease with mask wearing/non-mask wearing.
