    googling aids, it only killed 41,000/year in the USA at its peak; its only 15-17K/yr now.

    never could figure out a vaccine; spent billions i'm sure.

    many jobs; much profit.

    sure, we came up with some pretty-good-to-so-so "treatments".
    You do realize that AIDS is a little different than covid, right? Being an incurable, lifelong disease and all that...

    Strange that the Seattle police chief seems to have chosen long ago not to live in Seattle.

    I came across something months ago regarding the amount of money spent on HIV/AIDS research in the 1980s and into the 1990s as compared to the other top killers including cardio-pulmonary disease and all manner of cancers along with the various neurological afflictions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. It was something of an order of magnitude in funding. What made the difference with HIV/AIDS was that, being a virus whose transmission mechanism was very quickly understood, came under control due to social and behavioral changes and not necessarily better treatment. There's all kinds of stories about people getting better once they stopped taking AZT, for example. Public health as it were, because a certain CDC head would not advocate that people of certain groups not engage in certain behaviors that increased your exposure to it exponentially. I hear that same CDC head had a hand in those early treatments, too. Made a good amount of money.

    My brother is a tuberculosis carrier. He was on antibiotics for a year when he was diagnosed.

Right now in the US, the fatality rate of known COVID cases is about 3%. I think there are a lot more asymptomatic ďcasesĒ out there, so this rate will come down as the dust settles.

    So if half the US population gets it, and 0.5-1% of those infected do die, we should expect a death toll of about 800k-1.6mil over the next year or however long it takes for the virus to reach half the population.

    Thatís worth some prevention/containment/eradication effort, no?

So my view is that if I wasn't affected at least this time, I could be carrying the germs and pass off onto someone else who's vulnerable like my 80yo parents or someone at random. So I wear a mask when indoors at the grocery stores out of courtesy of others, but I'm not afraid.

    Being Wednesday, it's cashew chicken day at my local Woods Supermarket, so I stopped in for lunch. Everyone wearing masks yet we're still being told to social distance, and there are those who are literally terrified enough they move away from you as you approach. My question here is this - if masks work, why social distance? If social distancing works, why wear masks? Those who are pushing all this BS are contradicting themselves, and those who question this lack of logic are silenced and even fired if they're a doctor. And of course the news media buries it or ignores it because they're pushing the nonsense and too stupid to understand the truth themselves. We're being made to be afraid of each other, our elders, our protectors, and everything good.

    If we're all wearing masks, why social distance?
    If we're all keeping our distance out of fear of each other, why wear masks?
    I've yet to hear a reasonable or non-BS non-contradictory explanation for these questions.
    Carbondale, IL passed an ordinance last week mandating masks out of doors. Despite my initial irritation, I gradually realized what a hallway potty pass this actually was shortly afterward. In the details it says that the mask must be worn if social distance cannot be maintained. Problem solved, since I have ALWAYS kept my distance from others.

    I suspect more than a trace of irony here, but unless there's an ordinance or other requirement of the city or county for residence, this is pretty common for cops from the grunt level of patrol to the command ranks.

    Ah yes, the last epidemic politically weaponized because Reagan allegedly didn't CARE enough. Funny how these things never happen when a dem is in the White House.

    Thanks. I appreciate the link to the dataset.

    I donít see how the comorbidity entails that the person necessarily would have died in the near term without COVID. Statistically Iím sure some would have died, but concluding all would have seems to be a step I donít follow.
