Hello Quod Fam!
I had to have my 14 y/o rescue put
to sleep on March 13. I have been
heartbroken, missing him, and not
able to find another shelter pet....
until last Saturday! May I introduce
Rusti, an almost one year old
chi weenie weighing in at 8#!
She was at a rescue in Clear Lake,
IA as shelters around Des Moines
are still closed. It was love at first
sight, and she truly is as sweet as
she looks! Thank you for giving
me this forum to share with you
my happiness! ❀️ 🐾 πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

If you want to understand what's going on with right now, the best place to look is Florida, because they do the best job of anyone in terms of data transparency.
Note the different age distributions of cases, hospitalizations, & deaths in their regular report.

The full report is here: floridadisaster.org/globalasse. The point is that not all hospitalizations are the same.
If you're 85 and you've been hospitalized with ,
the risk of death is 61%.

If you're 35-44, (and you've been hospitalized) the risk is 5%.

If you're 25-34, (and you've been hospitalized the risk is) 2%.

So, when you see reports about rising numbers of hospitalizations, it's critical to ask: what's the age distribution of the people being hospitalized?

We talking about elderly or young people?

Without that information, "hospitalizations" statistics are far less useful.

For those who like to see this data visualized,

here's a chart of the mortality rate of hospitalized patients by age bracket (in honor of UF grad
@GreggGirvan
the bars are in retro Gator blue).

Not all COVID hospitalizations are created equal.

Here's a similar chart, but this time of the death rate for *cases* in FL.

Age trend is even more pronounced, b/c the death rate for COVID *cases* for people under 55 is well below 1%.

So when people talk about rising cases, 1st q to ask is: what's the age distribution?

Finally, here's the age distribution of the *hospitalization* rate of Florida cases.

Here again, you see that the frequency of hospitalization is much higher for the elderly.

Con't Final question:

One question that remains outstanding: Texas and states like it reopened on May 1.

The rise in cases is in the last week or two.

So what happened in late May or early June that has lead to rising cases?

(Possible answer - The protest/riots began May 29th? in June 10?)

β€œNo longer will religion be in its own uniquely constricted category,” he said, adding: β€œThe outdoor gatherings are now without numeral limitation, given the George Floyd protests, the Juneteenth celebrations and the Black Lives Matter demonstrations, all of which have been approved by Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio, and the only limitation that remains is that of social distancing.”

Most Americans have lost all ability to conjugate verbs. "I seen him." Argh. Let's try, "I had seen him." "I saw him." But remember, I went through all of my elementary and high school education before the Department of Education had been established. We diagrammed sentences. We memorized multiplication tables. Well, you get the picture. We were taught, not indoctrinated.
