Hey it’s only like a summer camp for kids right?
The kids are the ones I am concerned for mostly. They don't have enough life experience under their belt to discern fact from fiction or truth from lies. They need social connections and this really caused a lot of problems for them.

Nope. We don't.

That's good news I'd be really interested to know how old these people were at the time of their death and if they had any underlying conditions. They rarely tell us that, though.

I'd like to welcome you down to San Diego. Based on your posts here, you seem like the type of people we need moving in from the Bay Area and I think you'd be much more at home here.

IDK, I think it's Stockholm syndrome to some extent. They really just think all of this theatre is keeping us safe, and now that we're out of it, they probably think all these clowns did a great job and kept us "alive".

Probably nobody here was ever sure the vaccine would end the pandemic (because, a few dumb statements aside, nobody knew if it would) and it's mostly crocodile tears on that subject.
Look, GH. I get it. You and I see things in different ways.

However, this continued discussion of mandatory vaccines, masking and restrictions you hold onto is unrealistic. There's been too much documentation proving that not everyone can take the vaccine. Too many statements by people who've experienced adverse effects of it. Too much evidence that the vaccine doesn't keep you from contracting it or passing it along to others. It's good if it works to lessen the chances of dying. I won't deny that but it's not 100% bulletproof. Each person should be their own advocate and not have it forced on them.

More importantly, it's time to stop calling people liars or that they're telling lies when they post a comment you don't like. Like I said, you may not like what's being said but it doesn't mean it's not true. No one exaggerated anything here.

As noted in that article, we probably won't know anything about their age or medical history. They do state that the first person who died of COVID-19 back in February of 2020 was a supposedly healthy 57-year-old woman from San Jose with no preexisting conditions.

I think it's a huge accomplishment that California has kept its death rate as low as it has. We must have done something right.

"Despite the massive tally, the Golden State has the 11th-lowest death rate among states when accounting for population, 255.3 per 100,000 residents, according to data compiled by The Times.

By comparison, 10 states — Arizona, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Tennessee, West Virginia, Arkansas, New Mexico, Alabama, Michigan and Florida — have cumulative death rates of at least 416 per 100,000 residents."

We are now three years into this.

I was last in California when the mandate to wear masks on airplanes was lifted (had to wear them on the way there, but not on the way back). Much of the rest of the country has moved on from the pandemic, so discussion of vaccines, lockdowns, mask wearing, future developments, what's what, who's right, who's wrong, hypotheses and theories on both ends, and general arguing no longer belongs on a LOCAL forum.

I'm sure there are Covid threads in POC to partake in.

Given that most of my moderating now occurs in this thread means it's time to go.

Isn't it cold outside? Tons of rain, and snow in weird places?...
