Maskachusetts: When people aren’t scared enough, change the Covid-19 dashboard

Facebook remains a safe space for Shutdown Karens to pour out their fear regarding school reopening. Children will die. Maybe the death rate among children could become 100X what it had been? Certainly it could! The Tuesday, August 11, 2020 dashboard:

Out of 8,529 deaths so far, exactly 0 have been among those under 20. A naive person might look at these data and say “since I’m not 82 years old, I won’t worry too much and I certainly won’t worry about children, none of whom have ever died here in Massachusetts.”

[How is Maskachusetts doing as Month 6 of Shutdown begins? The never-masked, never-shut Swedes have lost 5,770 residents so far (WHO). In other words, righteous Massachusetts, carefully following Church of Shutdown dogma, has had twice the cumulative death rate of the wicked Swedes, sending their children into the killing zones (schools) daily.]

The August 12, 2020 dashboard has a new format. This one is much scarier to middle-aged parents. 8,547 of us have perished. There is no breakdown by age nor average age reported. 18 people were reported dead yesterday (compare to 4 in Sweden, suggesting that Massachusetts has 6X the daily death rate compared to Sweden).

  1. On Sunday I was in Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea. Despite of most non-food business being closed, both towns were packed. Basically Californians don’t even try to isolate anymore.

  2. I was wondering when they would pull the age breakdown from the dashboard. It was clear from the beginning that the public shouldn’t know that information, because it has always shown where the real risk is. It’s very important that everyone believes that COVID is literally standing over their shoulder, ready to take their lives, regardless of their age or preexisting conditions. Next they’ll eliminate the pie chart showing 98.2% of the deaths are people with preexisting conditions.

  3. I wonder if this was done in preparation for the fall/winter flu season. It’s obvious that the greatest danger to everyone in Massachusetts now is children dying of something – anything! that can be reported as a transmissible respiratory disease. Therefore it’s obvious that people need to understand that everyone is at equal risk of dying from something – anything! regardless of their age.

  4. The next step is forced quarantine for asymptomatic individuals – isolating them from work, their homes and families in centralized “wellness centers”:

    “(Bloomberg) — Flare-ups from Australia to Japan show the world hasn’t learned an early lesson from the coronavirus crisis: to stop the spread, those with mild or symptom-free coronavirus infections must be forced to isolate, both from their communities and family.”

    Beyond household spread, the strategy is necessitated by a facet of human nature that’s been seen time and again across countries and cultures: left to their own devices, some people just won’t follow the rules.

    Rather than forcing isolation on mild cases, authorities have locked down 5 million residents in Melbourne and are tightening restrictions until new cases come under control.

    • Here’s the YouYang Gu model for Japan:

      It projects 1,740 deaths out of a population of 126,860,301 by November 1.

      0.0000137 of the population, or 0.00137 percent. His forecasts show that the total number of infected people – from the beginning of the virus – will be 0.6% in Japan on November 1. This is evidence that people need to be “move[d] out of their homes into centralized facilities while they get over their infections, which usually doesn’t require longer than a few weeks.”

      Here in Massachusetts, the “total infected” is projected to be 17.6% by November 1, or 30 times greater. If we’re measured against Japan, that means everyone in Massachusetts will have to be placed in a government quarantine facility, basically until the end of time. We will never have an infection rate that’s safe for people to be released back into society.
