#4 Man, 30, Dies After Attending a ‘Covid Party,’ Texas Hospital Says
A 30-year-old man who believed the coronavirus was a hoax and attended a “Covid party” died after being infected with the virus, according to a Texas hospital.

The man had attended a gathering with an infected person to test whether the coronavirus was real, said Dr. Jane Appleby, chief medical officer at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, where the man died.


Well, unlike some, he had the courage of his convictions.

#5 During the Knesset coronavirus committee meeting, it was revealed that some 170 cases of infection originated since June from weddings, 35 from gyms, 21 from restaurants and six from bars.

Marriage is #1 killer, followed by fitness?

#6 How many of those weddings were Ultra-orthodox? How many were Arab-Israeli?

#8 In the Hasidic neighborhoods of Brooklyn, NY, the number of new cases seem to be going to zero so they may actually have made it to herd immunity.

I base this on the fact that NY State new cases and new deaths per day are down to the hundreds and teens respectively.

NY had riots and protests like other States beginning in early June but the case load went down not up in that State.

#11 Man dies after COVID party? The Doctor, who witnessed his final words, offered nothing about any comorbidities? Other than terminal stupidity, of course. It's more scary if we think he was a picture of health. Oh, that's right - published in the NY Times.

#15  None of them over 22.

So all 12,000 were in contact with someone who tested positive, or someone in their unit was, but how many are actually sick — and how many are sick enough need an ICU? In other words, how many are in quarantine as a precaution?
