I live in Arizona now. Retail opened today, salons open Fri, restaurants open Monday. And the governor thanked us residents over and over for their patience and kindness. No bs just stated what when how. Loved it
Gee, what a surprise. The entire state of AZ has barely over 8,000 cases. Of course they're reopening some of their stores.

To be fair, there's just a mere 7.3 million people in the state of AZ whereas we have over 39 million. If you figure the percentage of cases, AZ's is 0.11% and California's is 0.13%. Not a huge difference.

There was something on the news earlier that I found interesting. The majority of cases in CA are in LA county. Reassuring for those who don't live there, I guess. But very scary for those who do.

Arizona has 7.28M population and 8,640 covid cases.
8,640 /7.28M * 100= 0.1186 rate

CA has 39.5M population and 52,200 cases.
52,200 /39.5M * 100 = 0.1321 rate

California has about the same infection rate as Airzona

Fresno county
Population 1million+
672 cases 9 deaths
The local media kept telling us that we'd be a giant hotspot, but their doomsday scenario never materialized. Glad that we'll be opening up soon.

So you're not minimizing number of deaths from COVID-19 this time?

Here's what I suspected all along:

Quote:
“COVID-19 has been seen to affect more of those countries who have robust and free influenza vaccination program leading to reduced natural flu infection among their population,” the article reads.

Countries where flu vaccines are readily available have witnessed a bad course of the infection. This might be because in the absence of natural flu infection, the mucous membrane is unable to develop the innate immunity that is effective against all kinds of pathogens,” said Dr Gupta.
...
“BCG [tuberculosis] vaccine is known to confer a broad-spectrum immunity not just against tuberculosis but other diseases...BCG-vaccine is a known immune-modulator"
(multiple countries are currently investigating a link between BCB/tuberculosis childhood vaccination and low impact from coronavirus, countries that vaccinate against tuberculosis generally have lower impact from the virus...BCG vaccine is known to boost up general immunity protecting from all kinds of infectious diseases)

Scientists have identified a new strain of the coronavirus that has become dominant worldwide and appears to be more contagious than the versions that spread in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new study led by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The new strain appeared in February in Europe, migrated quickly to the East Coast of the United States and has been the dominant strain across the world since mid-March, the scientists wrote.

I know you have a thing for posting the most negative articles you can find, but if this is true (IF), and it’s been around since mid-March, it’s old news.

Nah, Mike. Just posting what's currently in the news about the coronavirus. You've said several times that you don't trust journalists, so you're obviously free to ignore it.

And the study was published in late April, not mid-March.

It’s called cherry picking. I think you’re going to be very disappointed once this whole thing is over.
