California just like the other states are being affected because people think the virus is done. Being cautious and implementing safety measures is Partisan now. Everyone wants to go back to being normal but sadly they don’t understand their recklessness and irresponsibility is causing this virus to spike again in massive ways which will prolong our suffering in all levels. The red states are having massive spikes right now. Americans don’t want to sacrifice at all. They think spending two months in the comfort of their homes with all the amenities they could have is suffering. Now half the country is seeing massive spikes in this virus. What do you thinks going to happen next?

No, you can't make blanket statements like "Californians think the virus is done" and "Americans are too stupid to live."
Where are the cases happening? Look it up by zip code if you can. I'm in Oregon - a disproportionate share of the cases here are among Latinos and immigrants because (a) they tend to be essential workers who often have to work high-risk jobs, (b) they tend to have extended families living together in close quarters, and (c) they don't always have good access to public health information or basic medical care. I'm sure it's the same way in California (and Arizona).
Is that their fault? Are they "too stupid to live"?
Yes, there are obnoxious and irresponsible people who refuse to wear masks, but that's far from the whole story.

R16, I completely agree that the people who work at high-risk jobs or are forced to go back to work for monetary reasons and get sick are completely innocent. I was speaking of the country at large--the people who are bored, who want to go to a bar, who think wearing a mask in public is an infringement on their precious entitlement to do whatever they want. Those people are too entitled and stupid to live. Big difference. Thanks for letting me clarify that.

Agree with R17. One of my dearest friends waits tables in Kansas City. The restaurant just reopened and no mask was required, neither for patrons nor staff, and there were few if any limitations on seating according to her.
She told me their reopening was a nightmare-- staff was coming in with fevers, diners were vomiting in the bathroom, rude, maskless diners coughing, shoving dirty plates at her, etc.
She didn't have a choice but to go back to work. Further, her mom has terminal cancer and she probably won't be able to go visit her her for quite some time.
There are a LOT of people like her. The DL refrain implying that people getting coronavirus are fat and dumb (and fat ALWAYS equals Trumptard, too--there are no fat liberals in this alternate reality) is fucking tired. It's killing "us" too. Some of us are fat. Some of us work shit jobs and were forced to go back to those shit jobs to "save the economy" and the PTB have spoken --if we survive great, and if we don't well then it sucks to be us.

R27 Actually, I had to do those for a friend who is in hospice in a board-and-care facility. I had to go to the cable company to return his equipment and close his account, and I had to go to the bank to deal with power of attorney and other issues. Those were unavoidable, unfortunately. A lot of the grocery shopping I've been doing (online/pickup/delivery) is for him as well, as he doesn't like the food they give him. But I can't even go inside to see him--they have it locked down except for essential visitors. So I just drop the food off at the front door.

Inner Bay (SF, Alameda, San Mateo) are just reopening. Alameda Co. here. Even with the highest numbers in the region, we reopened retail and outdoor dining last weekend. Social distancing in theory but not in practice. Same as SF where I have gone in from time to time to pick up work. 90% masks at least, in SF more like 40%.
Don't get me started on cleanliness. Bay Area residents and establishments have developed a low threshold for "clean."

I've been waiting all summer to head down to SoCal from Canada, but it looks like the border will be shut for quite a while longer. Even though there are lots of cases in California, is this mainly in care homes, meat packing plants, etc? Are the beach areas of LA and SD fairly safe if you just stay in a hotel and stay away from bars?

R51 LA County (and several others) just had bars closed again this afternoon due to spikes. The other counties are in the Central Valley. If anything, this suggests that the problems are with Latino communities who have been hardest hit in CA. They also form a huge sector of essential workers and have the least protection and voice from employers.
We are heading to So Cal in September, nonetheless, to focus on outdoor related activities. We are driving from SF.
If Canadians were allowed to return, I think you would be fine as long as you take sensible precautions and yes avoid the bars.

It doesn’t matter blue state or red state people are acting irresponsible everywhere. The lock down worked way too well and lulled people into a false sense of security. Yes we are entitled because we want to get on with our lives and get back to normal but in acting irresponsibly we are ensuring this virus hangs around longer and at higher levels. We are also ensuring our economy is going to take a much bigger hit than it would have otherwise. I am disgusted but not shocked by my fellow citizens and their selfish behavior. You would think they were locked in a dungeon for four years the way they are acting. And the fact safety measures were turned into a Partisan thing in such a polarizing environment has doomed us.

We do have more cases here in SF but the hospital beds are not impacted too much. People who are hospitalized seem to also have milder course than earlier wave, and none of the COVID-19 patients in our hospitals have died from this wave that I know of. Interestingly enough we had 2 pregnant and postpartum moms who tested positive and were hospitalized as precaution since they were asymptomatic. The babies were in the ICN also for testing and precautions.

The kids are running rampant all over without parental control...touching everything. It is a mess. Not racist, just seeing how in some communities it is it taken seriously.

They acquired herd immunity
That means it had to infect 28% of all Americans (between 500,000 and 850,000 died). Back then the population was about 105 million people
We now have 362.2 Million people. So basically 2.5 - 3 million Americans will have to die of Covid.

R51, I’m a physician in a lovely community by the sea in LA county.
Not sure where in Canada you’re coming from, but the situation is different from what I understand of my colleagues where I came from (MNI/McGill Univ.).
Even as a surfer, I’ve not been near the sea most of the year; nor do I have plans to do so for the foreseeable future.
Whilst many don’t mind the risk, I continue to remain astonished at those who are astonished they contract the virus. Especially those with longer-term sequelae who experienced mild or asymtomatic disease.
As we’re seeing here, everybody is going to do what they are going to do.
Perhaps because I see the inside stories (and others remain further removed from them), travel during a global pandemic with many questions still about Covid-19 just doesn’t seem like the wisest move now.

This is because they are not social distancing and the masks are not really that effective. The part that really works is the social distancing.
The people who are not wearing face masks, are also NOT social distancing. They are spreading the corona v.
If you are vulnerable and you are social distancing, and you wear face mask in a store (for a limited period of time) that also uses social distance. Then, you lower the risk in that instance. But, if your moron children or neighbors show up, you get another likelihood of exposure each time you interact with a non medical personal. Higher likelihood if they are psychos.

R82 - my roommate had a boyfriend from Spain who was also working here at our company. This man had worked at the Mexico office as a manager and a Mexican girl told him she couldn't get pregnant, no need for birth control. Of course she got pregnant and her brother, who had killed his wife in a crime of passion, essentially forced this man to take her to Spain. She and her spawn took up residence in his apartment in Spain while he worked like hell here with us. The woman did nothing all day and claimed to have lost her work permit and was screwing every guy she met in Spain. My roommate liked him because she saw him as a victim while, unbeknownst to her, his ex was poisoning his mind against her because she is American and threatening to take the baby away to Mexico if he kept talking to "that white American bitch" (my roommate is half American, half Romanian and just really cool). Well my roommate dumped the abusive asshole only to find out the bitch had screwed around all over Madrid and gave both his mom and brother coronavirus and wouldn't wear a mask and got fined by the authorities there 2 times for breaking quarantine to go screw around. A man I briefly hooked up with said that in Barcelona none of the workers from Latin America would wear masks, only the ones from smaller towns in Spain, Israelis, Eastern European laborers, and the Hispanics yelled racism about mask wearing.

The seeds of the latest surge in coronavirus cases in California appear to have been planted around Memorial Day.
It would take a few weeks of incubation. But it’s now clear that Memorial Day was the beginning of something. A Los Angeles Times analysis has found that new coronavirus hospitalizations in California began accelerating around June 15 at a rate not seen since early April.
A Times analysis found that as of Sunday, 5.9% of coronavirus test results received over the last week are positive. That’s a significant jump from the figure the previous week, when it was 4.8%.
The rate is even worse in Los Angeles County: As of Sunday, the seven-day average of coronavirus tests being confirmed as positive was 8.7%. Two weeks ago, it was 5.8%.

As bad as businesses and individuals want to reopen and return to normal, it has to be done scientifically, logically and using proper precaution. in NYC people are already going around without masks and not properly social distancing. I believe masks in public and when in close proximity should remain until perhaps September, or at least until Phase 4 kicks in.

There were mass protests in NYC, R100. There have been no massive spike, or any spike, in NYC since the protests. In fact, there have not been spikes in recorded anywhere due to the mass protests.
The spikes are being seen in states that opened up prematurely--businesses, restaurants, bars, etc.

R120 doesn't seem to understand that not being hermits does not mean no practice of social distancing. There are many ways not to be a hermit that don't mean cramming oneself alongside dozens or hundreds of others with no masks.

It was determined back in early May that 20% of New Yorkers tested positive for anitbodies. Curiously, there hasn't been any updated study due to fears that the results of these tests are unreliable and can lead to false positives. However, given the time frame, New York's limited reopening in early June, and lack of social distancing, it's safe to assume that many more have been exposed.

The lock down was never about hoping they'd find a cure in 3 months, it was about planning, and having the medical readiness to combat this shit without hospitals being overwhelmed, etc. This isn't a hollywood movie; with no cure or vaccine life must go on. Practice social distance, but life must go on. Did political no life losers think we were going to be in lock down for the rest of the year.
Things opening back up coupled with way more testing only makes sense the numbers would increase dramatically.

There is a SPIKE in Cases, including hospitalizations and death. That stupid article is WRONG.

[quote] Many is different from most.
The number of positive in cases, of which there is a much greater concentration in the big cities, would make containment measures impossible to enforce. The flattening of the curve, despite limited reopening, lax social distancing, and large gatherings of protestors seem to indicate that there has been mass exposure, at least among those who are the least vulnerable. However, it's true that not enough concrete data is available, but there is enough to presume that facts are being manipulated in order to pursue an agenda.

California would shield public health officers' home addresses under new legislation that emerged Tuesday after the long-unknown officials faced death threats this year for imposing coronavirus requirements.
Health officials struggling to contain the coronavirus have at times faced an intense backlash in California, including death threats and protests outside their homes for imposing or keeping restrictions. Most recently, Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer went public last week with a series of physical threats she has received for maintaining a stay-at-home order for 10 million residents.
Others have resigned in the face of public pressure, as Orange County's Nichole Quick did this month after facing personal threats for imposing a face covering order.

|by Anonymous||reply 172||Yesterday at 2:19 PM|
The biggest states, the ones that could afford it, should have done a cold-blooded analysis of the cost-benefit over closing and reopening.
Even if the economy reopens, people aren’t going to go shopping at the mall if there’s a 10% chance that it’s deadly to do so. Not that it is now, but I mean for example. Ditto for people working there. And not just malls, but everything. Once they had a rough cost benefit analysis, they could better make decisions. For example, suppose they find that there is no economic benefit to keeping things open. Suppose they conclude that people will be so spooked, that they’ll voluntarily stop shopping, though after lots of deaths. And people will voluntarily stop working and commuting and flying. Add in the costs of medical care and hospice care. Etc. Maybe, we don’t even have to weigh the human cost, because the economic cost is so dire.
If the results aren’t that obvious, then it takes more analysis. I know the public would be freaked out, as if human lives were weighed against the value of each corpse, but governments do this all the time in warfare, though gingerly.
