    That's why I think everyone yelling that Covid19 was just a bad flu were not necesarily wrong. I imagine the flu would be totally devastating if it showed up and we had no vaccine and no immunity to it.

    But really, Covid's just a bad common cold. We're terrible at having a vaccine to prevent the common cold, and our immune system does a terrible job at preparing for it. Except this common cold also just absolutely destroys random people while giving others the sniffles.

    BREAKING: The median age of COVID-19 fatalities in the U.S. is 81. So tell me again why are we keeping young people from going to school?

    It only drops off on the high end because they’re so few people that old.

    67,000 (est.) jail and prison inmates are back on the street because Covid. Ever feel like you're living in a country that is rapidly imploding?

    Anyone know how many were released in MS?

    I think the vast majority of those were no real danger to society. We'll likely save money by releasing them early (at least until they screw up their probations and wind up back in prison).

    We still don't know what the final effects of Covid is. There are a lot of people that have minor symptoms that end up with lung scarring, and then there's the random Kawasaki type thing kids are getting a month after recovering. They are having something that isn't normal a month later, so folks are a little concerned about long term for them.
    Also, kids are petri dishes. Parents catch everything once they have kids, and Covid won't be different. Adults would be safer hugging random strangers than having kids in school.
    At least those are the arguments I'm hearing.

    All that said, what should we do? I don't have a clue. Conservatives have been yelling about indoctrination at public schools anyways, maybe it's time we take the opportunity to do something about it and prove that we don't need them?

    However, with the way getting a vaccine is going, we might have to shoot for herd immunity anyways. If Covid is here to stay, we might as well approach it like chicken pox was. Get it early and get it over with. A couple decades and there won't be many senior citizens that don't already have immunity from when they were younger.

    If immunity lasts more than a year. A big, hopeful if.

    From what I have seen personally, it affects the brain, sometimes seriously, and even other parts of the nervous system.

    It is my belief that it is.

    Safer At Home order extended again

    Gov. Tate Reeves extends Safer At Home order to June 1

    Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves Friday has again added more time to his “Safer At Home” executive order, which is now in effect until June 1 at 8 a.m. It was to expire on Monday, May 25.

    Reeves made the announcement during his daily video press update to the state about the COVID-19 pandemic in Mississippi, saying it was needed to continue “flattening the curve.”

    "We cannot ask the people of Mississippi to do more than they are able to do for a sustained period of time,” Reeves said. “Over the past two weeks, we have steadily opened up more and more of our economy. There will still be some guidelines in place for businesses—but we will be out of the business of closing down anybody.”

    Just as a comparison, the story is a bit different in Columbia. The one in S. America, not the one on our East coast. ;)
