Hundreds of people celebrated the July 4 weekend at a Michigan lake. Now some have Covid-19

Source: CNN

(CNN)After revelers celebrated the Fourth of July at a Michigan lake, some started testing positive for Covid-19 -- prompting health officials to warn other party-goers that they might have been infected, too.

The Health Department of Northwest Michigan said other health officials in the state reported that several people have tested positive "after attending the festivities at the Torch Lake sandbar over the Fourth of July holiday," the department said Friday.

Those who tested positive weren't able to identify everyone they had contact with, "and therefore we want to make the public aware that those who attended could be at risk for exposure, and additional cases could be seen in the coming days," the health department said.

Trump is toast. No SEC football this year?

And it all goes back to Trump too.

This will be like when Coach Bear Bryant got his ass kicked by USC (I think) and black players. No football is gonna make Billy Joe Jr. really pissed.

Can't sugar coat it... this is all on Trump and those who illegally installed him into power.

Good God in Butter is Trump stupid. Absentee ballots are OK but mail in ballots aren't.


Absentee ballots are mail in ballots.

They want to die. Trumpers that is.

I stopped by my local Trump/Fox News bar in Columbus tonight for a carry out sub ... stupid good ... and the porch is backed up without one mask and people are on top of each other too.

The Beast is burning through Franklin County 10,000 dignosed cases and at least 100,00 according to the CDC's numbers. My vet's office 1 mile north of here just had to close because 2 of the vets and 2 or 3 of the techs had the virus.

Sweet Tweets




As per MSNBC last night we could very well be @ 1,000,000 new cases per day very soon.

Dr. Fauci said that 100,000 new cases per day is a very real possibility and then another
expert* said that according to the CDC the real # is more than likely 10 times that amount
so we could be looking @ 1,000,000 new cases of C-19 per day.

* Sorry I didn't catch his name he was on Brian Williams show.

So thanx to Trump and company we now are all in one of 2 groups:

1) Those of us that have the virus or had the disease.

2) Those of us that will get the virus.

The surge is occurring because America reopened before COVID-19 was contained.

Even Italy–not always known for the effectiveness of its leaders or the pliability of its citizens–has contained the virus and is reopening without a resurgence.


We are like a D-Day every few days in C-19 deaths or a Titanic every few days ...

... or a 9/11 few days in the number of deaths

"The virus is with us, but we need to live with it," said the White House but many of us will not
"just live with it," because we and or our families and or our friends and or our neighbors
and or our coworkers are not "just living with it." When people die of something they are no longer
"just living with it."

D-Day Deaths 2,501

Of the 4,414 Allied deaths on June 6th, 2,501 were Americans and 1,913 were Allies.

Titanic Deaths 1523

9/11 Deaths 2,977


I can't find the exact figures but America is @ something like > 600 C-19 deaths per day.

And this is all on Trump and his enablers. This shit should never have happened. This would not have happened
with Sec. of State Hillary Clinton as President.

"The virus is with us, but we need to live with it," is how one official said the administration plans to message on the pandemic.


South Dakota governor, exposed to virus, joined Trump on jet

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem accompanied President Donald Trump to Washington aboard Air Force One on Friday night despite having had close contact with Trump’s son’s girlfriend, who had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Trump has been in a position all along to encounter a virus that spreads from people who don’t feel sick, such as Noem, who had interacted closely at a campaign fundraiser with Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, who turned out to be sick.

Noem's spokesperson, Maggie Seidel, says the Republican governor didn't wear a mask on the plane and chatted with the president as the flight returned to Washington, D.C.


Repost from 2/28/20 ... Health secretary says "window is closing" to get coronavirus under control

Health secretary says "window is closing" to get coronavirus under control

Source: Axios

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar warned on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that the "window is closing" for the U.S. to take action and get the coronavirus under control, calling the current state of the outbreak a "very, very serious situation."

Why it matters: Azar's rhetoric stands in stark contrast to that of President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who claimed at a press briefing on Friday that the U.S. has "flattened the curve" and that much of the surge in new cases is attributable to an increase in testing.

Throughout the pandemic, health officials on the White House coronavirus task force have sounded the alarm about the seriousness of the crisis while political figures like Trump have sought to paint a rosier picture.

The reality is that the U.S. today is getting closer to the worst-case scenario envisioned in the spring — a nationwide crisis, made worse by a vacuum of political leadership, threatening to overwhelm hospitals and spread out of control.

We are closing in on 3,000,000 cases. Does anybody want to get that barn door.

Donny's excellent weekend

It is not like we are in the middle of viral pandemic that has sickened 3 million Americans and we are closing in on 150,000 deaths from the disease this week and so what does Donny do?

Friday in the AM Golfing with Miss Lindsey …. of course the costs went into Donny’s pockets …. such as charging the secret service rent for the golf carts and for food and lodging @ Donny’s golf club.
Friday no work (why bother?)
Friday afternoon Marine 1 helicopter to Andrews Air Force Base then Air Force One to South Dakota. ????? costs
Friday Night a super spreader event @ Mt. Rushmore with fireworks. Costs for this campaign rally
passed on to the people of South Dakota and the American people too...Fireworks cost >$300,000
Friday night's a super spreader event included a bat shit cray cray speech.


Saturday no real work but another super spreader event in D.C. with more fireworks. BTW What is Trump a 12 year old boy? What is it with all the fireworks? Donny just saw a fireworks show the night before. Another cray cray speech. (I admit I went out of my way to avoid hearing his speech ….. Good God in Butter when does this grifting shit show stop?)

Sunday more golfing and tweeting. And once again the golfing was on America’s dime on.


America will hit a milestone tomorrow probably... 3M Coronavirus cases
