    Americans don't think much about Merkel because their not interested what happens in the rest of the world. The fact that Merkel is the best (by far) leader of a country is unknown to the average American. The day she retires will be a sad loss for Europe.

    Apparently its not very painful, just ignore all the other symptoms, get lightheaded and nightie nite. I was getting gas last week when a snowbird in an rv pulled up, we had a little chat across the pumps, then he asked what the elevation was and said he was getting dizzy, I quickly put more distance between us and did a "I gotta go"

    "Distance" is my best feature, according to my friends...

    So, what is the elevation? Any legitimacy to his being lightheaded, or do you think it was Covid?

    6000' elevation, don't think that should be enough to make a healthy person get dizzy, at least not without some activity. He was a snowbird, so either not in the greatest shape, or maybe the rona, don't know.

    Local hospital has let us know that not every confirmed case in the graph is local, they don't give us a number but some travelers get tested here because they get lightheaded. They also do not post recovered stats because they say some of the positives leave town and cannot be traced to recovery.

    Actually, some did, but seems okay to me. In some places if you vote by absentee then die before the actual election day, they still count your vote. Other places not.

    That's what I read on the suject anyhow.

    Just a little more info on the green code, since the US press doesn't seem to report on anything that's worked elsewhere ...

    It's a little application that goes on your phone. If you haven't been anywhere with the virus, then it shows a green QR splotch with your name and the current time. In China there's a few places to get it and set it up, in the US could be the apple store or wherever you get android apps. It's connected to the phone number, which is supposedly connected to you also and as we know, cell phones track where we go.



    Nobody in China forces you to have a green code. I understand that democratic laissez-faire liberty-loving Taiwan did, but wasn't there. However, there's several places that require it to go in, so most people get the app. They up-and-down the requirements as the situation changes - it was really lax in Shanghai for a long time, then some worker at the airport got the virus, they closed off his village and tested everyone the next day (10,000 or so I think), meanwhile everything in downtown sprouted green-code stands to get in. Then it receded and the checkpoints went away.

    Pretty simple, so far effective, and neither punitive nor authoritarian. Don't want one, don't get one. Can't go to the hospital or take the train without but your choice.

    Is it perfect and non-cheatable ? of course not, but once again, virus control is a macro matter, not micro. If you control the giant mass, then the little leaks don't matter as much. They can be stomped on as they occur.

    Too sensible for the US ?


    p.s. went to look for some images, what I found in the western press was snivelling. Fuck those imbeciles, jesus h christ. "What if you forget your telephone, what if you can't afford a telephone, what if little green men land on the roof and you need to flee without your telephone, oooh waaah, how can people survive ? Authoritarian violation of human rights, bla bla bla" No wonder you morons have 200,000 new infections per day. You're sick in the head.

    WTF is wrong with those nitwits ? This works nicely and it's simple. And it would mean, per Thunder's question, that recovered people could go back to a more normal life. China doesn't have that that I know of but it's a good idea.

    Can you fill in the details about the average age of mortality due to the Wuhan flu as compared to "normal" mortality in your region?

    In my awareness, The CCP pneumonia takes only the the aged (on average) At a number greater than "average" mortality

    79 vs 80 for the wuflu.

    I would be interested in your areas experience.

    No you wouldn't. You're a lying little sack of shit that pretends to be rational. The number of younger dead people is readily available. It's also much larger than zero. Further, you stupid clown, this virus does much more than just kill people. It damages them, for no one knows how long and in what ways. It's a circulatory disease and every single doctor you ask will say DO NOT GET THIS.

    Forget the doctors - I'm a machinist and I say, "don't get this".
