Don’t need to wish that on them. Could well have lifelong medical problems. COVID is not “just the flu.”
Yes, I do.

I hope they suffer.

Them and their fathers are the ones responsible for a quarter of a million deaths in the US.

I hope they suffer ... a lot.

I understand that GP. How you feel about it.

Poetic justice, instant karma..... I DO know GP that all things change. He will be relegated to be counted among the monsters of history....

I really doubt his kids had any say in their own lives.

See him in public, imagine in him in private.. what a creep. Not only ruined his familie(s) BUT also his Country.

Currently the death toll , and the infections , actually recorded are huge BUT...

the big BUT .......it's going to get worse.

I liken the Covid-19 presence in the US as .. I hate to say it... a bit like the sea sucking out before the tsunami rolls in inexorably. And ..... in the US and India, eg. there is no where to run to when it hits.

I can get back into SA from Vic, still need to quarantine in Tas tho. Buying a few things for the trip/quarantine I bought and I kid you not;

WEST TERRACE CEMETERY EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL!

The cemetery is a big old one, guess someone planted olive trees in and around it some time. Also bought some capers.

you must be happy Mr Monk
Oh for fucks sake! Had assumed our little flareup would mean I had to quarantine. Had resigned myself to do some paperwork in the B&B unit for a fortnight then a week on the block then a weeks holiday. Now I have to work for four weeks! Not fair!

Be nice to get the trees (all bar 3) in the ground where they are going to stay. The block is being slashed and a couple cubic meters of loam is being delivered so I can start the day after I arrive. Still not making new plans. What a bitch of a year!

  • The number of Covid0-19 patients being treated in hospitals across the US nearly doubled in the past month, reaching 90,000 on Friday. The rate of hospitalizations - now at the highest level since the pandemic began - has reportedly pushed some hospitals beyond capacity.

And it's getting worse. Of course it is. and soon there will be unattended bodies lying dead in the streets.

Meanwhile.....the outgoing President has walked away and much prefers to play Golf.

  • There were 217,664 new coronavirus cases in the US yesterday according to the Johns Hopkins University tracker – a new single day high.
  • 2,879 people died. It’s the second day in a row the US has set a new record number of deaths. (Johns Hopkins has revised down Wednesday’s initial figure from 3,157 deaths to 2,804, reportedly due to an error in one state.)
  • The total number of deaths since the pandemic began has now reached 276,366.
  • There hasn’t been a single day since the 3 November election when the US has recorded fewer than 100,000 new cases, and the total caseload has now reached 14,143,801.

The number are starting to reflect the mass gatherings USA had during Thanksgiving.... probably get worse for another week at least.....

One American dying EVERY 30 seconds.
THAT IS CRIMINAL. In fact I kind of agree with you, a insider terrorist offensive. taking place over many many many months, and more to come.

Absolutely appalling..

So .. NSW has failed AGAIN. They let two passengers from Germany get on a flight to Vic without screening. They must be friends of the NSW Premier Gladys Redface.

HOW ?

Victoria now has to deal with them. I have to say Gladys fails......................

We can hope.
Huh.. what a moron. What is even MORE stupid tho, is that she got to speak at all. If that is the best they have, they are going to be swamped. Their own shit will drown them.

Anyway Trump is doing the US as a whole a big favor. Lots of the maga crew will die.. therefore reducing the republicans base.

NO don't wear masks, and lets all get together for a big hug.

Morons, and as such they are no loss should they contract the virus and die. That can ONLY be a good thing. Cleans out the dud DNA.

Don’t expect too much from Biden, he is not a progressive and will face HUGE battles in the Senate unless the unlikely happens and Dems win the two Senate seats on Jan 5th. Repugs doing their best to deprive Georgians of the right to vote, allowing only 5 (instead of 11) polling places for the run off election in majority black/hispanic districts. A lot of applications for mail in ballots (who wants to stand for 10 hours in midwinter Georgia?) but who knows if they will be accepted. Repugs hate democracy.

Dramatic levels of “friendly fire” from the immune system may drive severe Covid-19 disease and leave patients with “long Covid” – when medical problems persist for a significant time after the virus has been beaten – scientists have said.

Researchers at Yale University found that Covid-19 patients had large numbers of misguided antibodies in their blood that targeted the organs, tissues and the immune system itself, rather than fighting off the invading virus.

Read the full report, by Ian Sample, here.

Damn this Trump Flu is Nasty.....
