    Over 52k cases so far in the U.S. today. Obviously our Country is struggling with this on a whole other level:

    Fauci warning that we could see 100,000 cases per day. It looks like we are at about 45k new cases per day right now, but he must see something he doesn't like.

    There are incredibly large numbers of young people getting infected in the Southern and Western parts of the U.S. The question is what type of interaction will they have with older folks (parents/grandparents) over the next couple of…

    It appears we are at an R of 1.1 or a bit higher here in the U.S. Florida is running ahead of that.

    I have to say, Jed, you have exactly caught my sentiment here.

    That's insane. No one "plans" to have a pandemic. There is no benefit to it. It does not help rich people or people who want more money to circulate. You can always print more money. We have been printing it for decades since 1945…

    Pretty troubling, Houston is now at 97% capacity on its ICU beds. They need to get the daily cases down quickly or they are going to run out.

    It looks like there is a coming ICU bed shortage in several States including my own. That should be a wake-up call for everyone. We could be looking at 35k new cases today.

    I think that main cause of a lower death rate is that more younger people are testing positive. Perhaps more Doctors are using Dexamethasone or Remdesivir and that is causing more people to survive. It would be interesting to…

    Just looking at new cases today, I think we are going to be talking about an R of 1.1 to 1.2 in the U.S. soon. Cases are definitely rising in many States and nationally, excluding the NY/NJ region, where they have seen a decline in cases.

    I understand that sentiment. It's true that scientists have been working on vaccines for years for other corona viruses and haven't produced a working one yet. I think the difference now is that a lot more resources are being thrown…

    Yeah, no doubt if I or anyone I knew were in bad shape with Covid I would be asking for Dexamethasone. I always wondered how much steroids were being looked at. Glad they did.

    This is the biggest drug news since the virus…

    I haven't weighed in much on this thread, but I do think that the combination of solar/wind generation with battery storage is the most exciting (or at least hyped) thing going on in the world of solar and wind energy these days.…

    President Trump has more or less declared that the pandemic is over. On June 8 he said:

    "So we want the continued blanket lockdown to end for the states. We may have some embers or some ashes or we may have some flames coming, but we’ll put them out. …

    I definitely thought it was a risky move to reopen the economy here in the U.S. in the middle of May. It felt a bit early to do it, especially in Georgia. But things appear to be ok so far. Not great, but no major spike or…

    Yeah, and it appears that they adjusted the cases back down for the day. So now the uptick is not as much as it previously looked to be.

    Interesting to see a real uptick in cases here in the U.S. today. Over 28k new cases and the day isn't over yet. Is this due to increased testing? Perhaps. But I have always wondered if we were going to hit that 1.2-1.3 multiplier again.

    Call me naive but it would seem difficult to fudge the COP calculations to that great of a degree with a 32 hour Suncell run. If there is a COP around 3 for 32 hours that has to be clear as day for that duration, assuming a…

    IMO there is still a bit unknown in terms of what immunity means. A worse case scenario where there is no lasting immunity has to be considered.

    That means someone who had a mild case of Covid-19 this year could be reinfected and…

    Yeah, developing a vaccine this fast is a bit crazy, probably even reckless on a certain level. It’s never been done this way before. I saw a Doctor talk about what the medical community knew about HIV in the early 80’s and he…
