Right now, the majority of counties in the U.S. have high transmission rates, with several southern states in the red. Nearly every county in Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida are seeing high transmission rates, according to CDC data.

Most northeastern states, according to the CDC, are seeing mostly moderate transmission rates, such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine.

Only a few dozen counties across the country have low transmission rates, the CDC’s data indicates.

Given the latest news, its more worrisome than I thought. Vaccinated people can harbor the virus in equal "loads" in their noses to the unvaccinated.. There it continues to mutate randomly, godzilla-zillions of viruses in hundreds of thousands of noses.

Now viruses can mutate to be more deadly as well as more transmissible and the vaccinated won't die but continue to spread them. Or am I missing something Drs ?

note: in the past we were assured it couldn't mutate more deadly and transmissible because then it would kill off its hosts before it could spread.

No. Not all vaccinated people. Only the very few who have breakthrough infections.

Well now there's a shocker. Teachers unions get bagged on, teachers union stooge Broke goes on the offensive to try to dig up anything that could support the teachers unions in their continued assault on our country's youth. And we see again and again and again... the kids are the ones who suffer

News flash- the CDC admits that it isn't few anymore.
You got that one right.... 30,000 new "breakthrough" infections per week per CDC unpublished data obtained by Washington Post yesterday. Its in the news -- non believers check Drudge today

Im hoping the viral load in vaccinated noses is weakened though. Otherwise, if not weakened by the vaccine the vaccinated would be getting sick, no?. Theres a lot we don't know because CDC is keeping their detailed findings unpublished, sort of secret.

What is an "infection"? What is the exact scientific definition? What is the threshold?

PCR tests are the gold standard, as all (honest, legitimate) scientists will tell you. They detect if the virus is present in a sample, better than any other technology and with very low false positives.

But there still has to be some threshold of like "lower than X virions per Y [not sure what goes here ... L of breath? oz. of blood? kg of tissue??] is not 'really' a true infection, it's something else".


An immune system can't react instantaneously. If a virion enters your body and infects 1, 10, 100, 1000 cells before the immune system can react -- even though it does react perfectly well and kills off the "infection" -- what is that called?

I'm sure these answers exist already, and were made by people much smarter than me.

Don't believe anything CDC/government tells you when they continue to allow 1000's if illegal aliens into the Country; many with COVID as they are transported throughout the USA.

MPLS spreading misinformation on COVID? No way!
Most of us would actually have to click that damn button again to see that but I'll take your word for it (and it's obviously just not worth the bother). They are doing the Lord's work, no doubt about it

New Orleans EMS can't keep up with calls due to the Covid-19 surge as mayor restores a mask mandate

Emergency medical responders in New Orleans have been hit so hard by the resurgence in Covid-19 cases that the city doesn't have the capacity to handle 911 calls, the mayor said Friday as she announced a new mask mandate and a contract to increase EMS resources.

"Thanks to the Delta variant, the Covid pandemic is once again raging out of control," New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said at a news conference. Over the past week, the city saw more than 1,000 new Covid-19 cases, Cantrell said. And the daily case average also spiked to 272, up from 104 last week, she said. "This is a very dangerous number," she said.

"Our children are dying. From two weeks old to two years old to four years old. You cannot make it up. Our children are dying."The mayor's mask mandate is effective immediately and applies to indoor settings and large outdoor crowds. The mayor is also requiring all city employees to get vaccinated.

With only 36.8% of Louisiana's population fully vaccinated, the state saw the country's highest case rate per 100,000 people over the past week at 573.3 cases, federal health shows. The state's seven-day death rate per 100,000 people is 1.7, the third-highest in the nation, with Nevada being the highest and Arkansas in second, according to the federal data published Friday.

Stay tuned as this plays out, we'll know soon enough how bad it is or isn't. Much of the TV news media will skip the scariest stuff so's not to scare the chill'n but it'll usually show up somewhere on Drudge.

I am doing everything I want to, I don't care about Covid, I want every restriction lifted.

Big city deaths basically zero yet the country had 400 deaths reported yesterday. Thanks for making me laugh. 🤪🤪🤪.
