Iowa medical director was aware for weeks of COVID data flaw

Source: Associated Press/ KCRG.com

"IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa’s medical director says she was aware of widespread inaccuracies in the state’s coronavirus data when her agency used it to release flawed calculations that helped guide decisions on school openings and enrollment this month.
Dr. Caitlin Pedati, the state epidemiologist, says she became aware in late July of a problem in Iowa’s disease surveillance reporting system that backdated thousands of new test results. Nonetheless, Gov. Kim Reynolds on Aug. 6 released 14-day county positivity rates on the state’s coronavirus website that she said would help school officials and parents decide how to proceed with the upcoming school year.
The state announced Wednesday that because of the backdating problem, those positivity rates had been erroneous for two weeks."

Trump campaign, Republican groups sue 'rogue' Iowa election officials over absentee ballot forms

Source: Des Moines Register

“President Donald Trump's campaign and several national Republican political committees are suing Johnson and Linn counties' auditors, who, they accuse, have gone "rogue" in issuing absentee ballot request forms ahead of November's election.
Already, the Johnson County Auditor's Office is reporting 9,634 requests in their system with more than 3,000 awaiting processing. And Linn County Auditor Joel Miller told the Press-Citizen he had already received an estimated 40,000 requests.
The suit asks the courts to invalidate these absentee ballot requests, requiring voters to resubmit before an Oct. 24 deadline in order to receive their absentee ballot. . .”

any site recommendations?

I have read coronavirus symptoms lists, but remain unfamiliar with the range of symptom severity, especially in the median scale,. I understand the range of the common cold, from mild to life-threatening via secondary infections. Everyone I know has survived one or two. That knowledge helps me to manage any anxiety I might have about catching a cold.

But the coronavirus appears, from what I've read so far, to be a certain death sentence for a reasonably experienced man of my age, sixty-four.

Have you read any first-person accounts of coronavirus survivors? I believe I might be less panicky if I hear from them.

I appreciate links to anything relevant.

Thank you very much.

Trumpists write

that the coronavirus is designed to "make Trump look bad."

I don't understand why they think a virus' existence affects orangey's reputation. It seems they think he is deity-like, and the state of humanity is his job performance review.

45 is nodding off. . .

watch his eyes as others talk. Heroin chic.

news to me:

Seth Abramson writes today:

“If America knew Trump traded the continuation of his licensing deal at Trump Towers Istanbul for a retreat of U.S. forces from the Turkey-Syria border, which led to Turkey shelling our troops, us losing bases, and the rebirth of ISIS, support for a second impeachment would be 70%.”

A Russian government-controlled bank deposited at least half a billion dollars into the American subsidiary of Deutsche Bank around the time that the bank lent Trump his most scrutinized loans, according to exclusively obtained confidential bank records. As Trump received loans from the subsidiary, DBTCA, totaling over $360 million, Gazprombank sent $511 million in cash to DBTCA to be dispersed however it directed. . ."
