    Remember when that was the goal.and the reason we needed to shut down for just a few weeks?

    Someone else posted this link innthe box. You should read it. Edit @BNAG8R

    Letter to the Editor: Why Increasing Number of Cases of COVID-19 is NOT Bad News

    the goal is herd immunity. at least 40% exposed.

    all this continuing ridiculous the world is going to end bull**** on fake news revolves around stats of people who are asymptomatic but testing positive.... and maybe just testing positive for the flu, since the tests are still very questionable.

      Just a few weeks will do! Just stay vigilant for two to three weeks in your homes and we'll be good to go!

            Yup agree 100%. The worst of this is past. Now everyone just needs to get it and get immunity.

              I heard an interview this weekend that some doctors are saying the virus has shown signs of weakening--not from contagious aspect, but in severity of infection. Simply put--indications are it is running it's natural course. Burning out slowly. Still dangerous of course, but nothing like when it first hit. And the common sense thing is that the most vulnerable needs to keep taking precaution and the younger, tougher crowd will contribute to the virus fading out over time.

              Sure would seem to support the herd immunity effect beginning to manifest itself....as predicted by many, but listened to by few. And completely ignored by MSM and the Dems.

                It's all about exploiting the news cycle / controlling the narrative.

                  The lady in charge of our county health dept. tells us that they're required to report 'positives' to the state dept of health. The dirty little secret is that they don't want new positives, just total. Many people are being counted 2 & 3 times as follow up tests are conducted.

                    The State Dept of health is wanting skewed numbers? We all know the Media is going to purposely cook the numbers for their agenda...but the dept of health? Why? Is every segment of the govt this corrupt?

                        They just wish they could get more deaths to count.

                        The CDC puts this disclaimer on their data site: "The number of positive tests in a state is not equal to the number of cases, as one person may be tested more than once."
                        Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
                        Once the media gets ahold of the raw data they apply spin depending on how they want the public to perceive it.

                          For two reasons: 1) more deaths increases fear in an election year, and 2) these dead are the fastest growing segment of new Democrat voters. It's a win-win for the DNC.

                              Kinda pissed that some of the Republican governors, and the POTUS, are letting this crap go without confronting it head on.

                              They aren't giving any context to the data, just letting the media/leftists control the narrative and the fear mongering.

                              Never thought I'd opine this, but Trump (and Desantis) need to be more vocal communicating about some of this data. Maybe he should revive the daily press conferences....

                                Interesting article. I don't have the medical background to argue one way or the other on this, but I have noticed that all the reporting I have been hearing in the media is on the number of cases; never on hospitalizations or deaths anymore. In my previous career we would have called that a "clue."

                                  According to Goon, 800 bed Tallahassee Memorial has 2 patients with Covid.
                                  I have been told Ocala Regional has 1.
                                  And I know for a fact the massive St Vincents in Jax as 13 (on Sunday).

                                  We also know for a fact the CDC also counts PCR and anitbody results into the "new cases" as well as the re-testing of existing patients.

                                  The real world simply does not match the end-of-the-world predictions the media is cramming down our throats.

                                    Yep and even those inflated death numbers have went way down as they are hollering about all the new positive tests. Its simply because of all the testing being done now and what they are counting and/or the viral load has went down a bunch with this stuff.

                                      I think Covid19 will disappear the day after the November election....MSM is playing every wild card lie to defeat Trump plain and simple.....antibody tests are 99% worthless.....200 companies with tests and FDA has granted Emergency Use Permission to only 12 or 22....(Two different YouTube reports)

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
