Oh, I know, the dotard in chief surrounds himself with butt kissers, yes (wo)men, and all the nuttiness that goes with it.

If you end up in the hospital in your area, it's highly unlikely youll be treated by someone like that.

So this is what is happening in WV. It appears as if we've decided to kill off our grandparents and great grandparents.

"According to DHHR, there are 3,235 active COVID-19 cases in West Virginia as of Wednesday, up by 1.6 percent from 3,184 active cases in Wednesday. There were 220 new cases reported in a 24-hour period, and only 3,710 test results, bringing the daily percent of positive cases to 5.61 percent. The cumulative percent of positive cases continues to climb, sitting at 2.67 percent – up from 2.57 last week.

The death toll jumped to 290 Wednesday, with 10 deaths reported by DHHR – tied with Aug. 29 for the most deaths reported in one day. Deaths reported Wednesday included an 80-year-old-woman from Wood County; a 79-year-old woman from Boone County; a 96-year-old woman, a 70-year-old woman, a 83-year-old man, and a 94-year-old man from Kanawha County; a 73-year-old woman and 88-year-old woman from Mason County; a 89-year-old woman from Mingo County; and a 84-year-old woman from Logan County.

Hospitalizations have also climbed to record numbers, with 156 hospitalized as of Tuesday. Of that number, 61 are in intensive care unit beds and 30 are on ventilators. According to estimates compiled by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources, the percent of impatient beds occupied by COVID-19 patients was 3.92 percent, though the percent of ICU beds reported occupied for all patients was 71.95 percent."

Is it ironic that a man-child like Trump would want a paediatrician close to hand?

Hell he takes medical advise from the 'my pillow' guy... at least she went to medical school, but probably in a country that Trump calls a shithole.

Lordy, that link won't let me view cause of my pihole and duck duck go browser
It's only Business Insider.

Given that most of their customers will be "florida man" business should be 'healthy' till they start getting sick.

But here it is;

  • Gary Kirby, the owner of Westside Sports Bar and Lounge in West Melbourne, Florida, has a no-mask policy for his customers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Customers who refuse to take off their face masks at Kirby's bar will be asked to leave, WESH 2 reported.
  • West Melbourne, which is located in Brevard County, doesn't have mask-wearing enforcement for business owners.
  • As of September 19, there have been at least 677,652 cases and 13,224 deaths in Florida since the beginning of the pandemic, according to The New York Times.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
A sports bar owner in West Melbourne, Florida, has a no-mask policy for his customers amid the coronavirus pandemic, said he finds it "completely unnecessary to have facemasks at all. We do not support; we do not believe in them."
Gary Kirby, the owner of Westside Sports Bar and Lounge, started banning masks on September 11, placing a "Masks Prohibited" sign the front door. Kirby said anyone who refuses to take off their face coverings will be forced to leave the bar, WESH 2 reported.
"I personally don't agree with it. So that's why I made the decision to… I don't want them here," he said in an interview with Fox 35 Orlando. "It's hindering our lifestyle as we know it."
As of September 19, there have been at least 677,652 cases and 13,224 deaths in Florida since the beginning of the pandemic, according to The New York Times. Medical, science, and national experts urge people to wear face masks to stop the spread of the coronavirus, which has killed nearly 200,000 people in the US.
People living in West Melbourne, which is in Brevard County, are encouraged to wear a mask and follow the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) recommendations, Don Walker, the communications director for Brevard County, previously told Fox News. Nevertheless, Walker said there is no law enforcement for mask-wearing.
West Melbourne Mayor Hal Rose said he opposes Kirby's no-mask policy.
"It's a business owner's right to dictate what they want inside their private business. I don't support (Westside's) philosophy. But it's their right," he said.
Kirby claimed that while he "doesn't approve" of face masks, he is cleaning and enforcing social distancing at the bar. He has a doorman to keep track of the number of people entering the bar, and he hasn't had one positive case of coronavirus despite thousands of temperature checks, he claimed.
"I do agree that there is a virus, with a 1% death rate. I feel like we are statistically just as likely to get hit by a train," Kirby told Florida Today.
Kirby previously said that the mask ban is a security precaution after an unsolved burglary that happened last month.
On August 7, a police report was filed after surveillance footage recorded someone who's wearing a mask and a baseball cap entered Kirby's bar and stole an unspecified amount of money, Sergeant Graig Erenstoft at the West Melbourne Police Department told Florida Today.
Kirby said his frustrations around the ongoing investigation is one of the reasons why he issued a no-mask mandate at Westside Sports Bar and Lounge. He explained police told him "criminals would be capitalizing on the mask mandate all over using it to their advantage to get away with crimes," and he also claimed that the burglar was wearing a surgical mask, the New York Post reported.
Since Kirby's no-mask policy, he's gotten a mix of death threats, bad online business reviews that are coming from Texas and California, and a wave of support from Facebook users. He told Fox News that he's received hundreds of messages from fans showing support.
"I'm getting messages on my Facebook saying, 'Hey, football, we're coming there to watch the game,'" he told Fox 35.

I wonder if progressives will emphasize or hope for higher numbers of people with underlying health problems in the 25 - 40 age range. Or the under senior age of 65 and over 25. Because if say 40% of all people age 30 to 60 have underlying health problems it's going to be really tough for Repubs to deal with that statistic.

Here's where the Repubs, conservatives and independents rail about how false the 40% figure is. Ok it may be too high but then what is the percentage if you're so smart or if anyone left or right is so smart?

Almost enough to make me regret not living around there.

I would walk in that place and cough my ass off. And then dare him to do something about it.


I would be coughing on everybody in sight, including him.

Not really an idiots item but seems appropriate.
My Cities schools opened, two days in we have two students with confirmed positives and one faculty member. Total of three covid positives over a two day period.
*I do not have kids* this part may be partially incorrect.
I believe all Students and I assume all faculty were tested two days before classes began, so everyone in those buildings tested negative two days before classes began. Basically four days after everyone tested negative there are three infections.
Scary how fast Covid spreads.
To my knowledge schools followed the State/Federal guidelines. I know some partitions were added and I saw some town Facebook post before school started about enhanced sanitizing between classes and stuff. The City took this seriously and didn't bang together some ridiculous plan. Appears learning will be going virtual again.
