The only one he has is a golf class on Tuesdays. (BTW, his professor saw his swing and immediately asked if he was a baseball player :lol: ).

He said the hotel is sweet. TV, fridge, and he doesn't have to climb up to his bed. Food is delivered to his room. Has to spend 10 days there and negative test out.
Yeah, I can't imagine a college kid having a tough time hanging out in a hotel room with a phone and food delivered to him. If he was able to bring in an Xbox or PlayStation he might not ever leave. Of course assuming no negative impacts from Covid, but for his generation that's pretty much the norm.
Oh, yes. He has his Xbox with him as well as his computer. Between our subscriptions and his roommate's/friend's subscriptions, he has access to just about anything that the TV does not have.
He'll be a bit stir crazy but I'm thinking he will get out of jail before the 10 days is up as long as there are no symptoms and he continues to test negative.

If they had a picture of first-world problems it would be of a college kid, in a hotel room he doesn't have to pay for, eating food being delivered to him while obsessively playing a video game, while in "isolation". :thumb:

Possible false positives in Colts organization. Several tested positive, then tested negative. The testing will need to continue, but the practice facility is closed.

I’ve had three family members, three close friends, and about 75 employees get it.

Batting 1000% so far. About the only “lingering” effect is my brother still hasn’t gotten his sense of smell or taste back, and he had it in February (you know, before it actually existed in the country :lol: ).

If they’re young and healthy, they have very little to worry about.

Thursday deaths in Minnesota was the highest since June, Friday set a record for number of daily cases in the state. Not doing a good job of protecting the elderly and vulnerable.

Weekly and daily records for states are falling right and left and yes, hospitalizations are becoming an issue again. Numbers of long term recovery (beyond one to two weeks) are also increasing according to Harvard which doesn’t help the economy. The mutation, D614G variant, has been identified and believed to be the number one driver of new cases. Good news is that while it appears to be more infectious the severity is the same.

Some lady from Benefis hospital in Great Falls got up on stage and talked about how the hospitals were being over run. Within the website was a link to hospital capacity in Montana. She's full of shit.

20 states hit 7-day average records last week.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washin ... utType=amp

7 states set daily case records this week.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnew ... cna1243823

The US went over 70,000 daily new cases for the first time since July. It’s increasing in 45 states versus the low 20’s back in August.

Need more?

Deaths lag behind spikes. Treatments and early detection should drive the deaths down....severity depends on how it’s measured. Symptoms, Hospitalizations, deaths?

Once again. What is defined as a case? Is it just a positive on a PCR test, or does it need to accompany symptoms? Your links are truncated, so I couldn't go to the articles to find out if they listed what constitutes a case.

This graph, from the CDC shows how testing has increased close to 300,000 tests over the last four weeks, while the positive rate still hovers around 5%. 5% of 300K is only 15,000, so that can't account for all the positives you quoted, and that is why we need to know how the new organizations you quote define a case. We may not be talking apples to apples.

Image

And deaths from Covid continue to drop and are now close to being considered "normal" variance. Also, notice the break in the slope of the red line. That break shows an even steeper decline in deaths. That red line goes under the two black lines and we are no longer in an epidemic.

Image

On a separate note, until I looked at the graph, never realized that pneumonia was such a killer.

Fair questions on the test to infection rate. Still, places like Missouri have experienced more deaths the last couple of months than they did early on. And Europe just passed the US in death rate again as their infections surge.

There is more testing now, as we always thought there were more cases than reported during the first wave. Number of deaths per day, are rising in Minnesota's neighboring states. Minnesota has been relatively steady.

In reality, there doesn't appear to be much alarm for protection of the nursing homes in this country.

The bulk of CA's cases are in the 18-49 age range, that range has the 2nd lowest death rate. Steady and sharp declines in deaths since the end of July. There's no reason to keep this state locked down.

We'll see. It's possible it's seasonal. Not only more cases but also a higher case fatality rate. It's possible that, with all that was going on during summer, it was going on during a relatively "mild" period. We're about to find out one way or another.
