#1 Of course, even in Israel, some "people" are unhappy.

#2 Making assumptions that these teachers got the virus from students is the type of unscientific leap to conclusion that causes mistakes in public health decisions.

#5 While we are truthfully educating ourselves.
Last week out of 342 Million in the USA.
17,073 out of 342,000,000 tested positive for Covid-19 and 277 died.
Note: The CDC "re-updated" the figure this morning to 468.

Still to die from the C-19 last week you would have to be 1 of the 468 (2.747027470274703 of the infected 17,073 (0.0049921 of 1%) infected out of 342,000,000

IN SIMPLER TERMS
99.99999999529534% Americas population DID NOT DIE of the Covid-19 last week.

99.99500789473684% Americas population WAS NOT INFECTED by the Covid-19 last week.

#6 34 positives out of 1,506 teaches is 2.26%, a bit less than the 2.7% of 40,915 tests.

Any of the children test positive, or have symptoms? Or are they assumed to be asymptomatic carriers?

Interesting headline


Trial shows hydroxychloroquine does not prevent COVID-19 in health care workers


Overall, 7.9% assigned the placebo developed COVID-19, while 5.9% assigned hydroxychloroquine developed COVID-19.

So 25% fewer people test +ive for COVID on HCQ...

Which they claim is
"those results were not statistically significant, meaning there was not a meaningful difference between hydroxychloroquine and the placebo."

Be interesting to see what they claim an effect would have to be

#15 Some these tests have a 2 percent false positive rate. Out of 1500 tests that would mean you shoud expect 30 false positives. There were 34 positives.
Conclusion?

#17 ^ True - NOT immune, just a very low rate as the article I added (in green) shows. 200,000 is a pretty large sample and even our resident Lockdown Apparatchik would be hard-pressed to deny that

#18 #16 I don't expect you to review all the diatribes that some "covid-sceptics" have thrown at me in the last few months. But the point was definitely raised - more than once.
If you are really interested, look for the Korean study I cites in #8, and you will find their pertinent posts.

Meanwhile, if you're really interested - this was the dogma until the Korean study.

#19 #16 (a) Yes Frank, whenever people wear masks, wash hands, and maintain other safety precautions - the infection rate is low. You, personally, wear a mask in public places?

#26 Making assumptions that these teachers got the virus from students is the type of unscientific leap to conclusion that causes mistakes in public health decisions.

We already know they got 'em from the kiddies - because it exactly what happened in May.


Wait what is the gestation period? I've heard between 2 and 14 days, which is like saying, "I'm not sure if that color is yellow or blue?"

And is that tested positive (false positives not withstanding) for exposure to, or infected from?

I'd assume that the teachers for sure were following protocol, yet the exposure rate is in the 2-3% which seems to be typical, so are the mask and distancing procedures not making a measurable difference?

Now, as for masks, to be fair my life could depend upon the proper mask and fit for my well being; this is coming from a firefighter and a SCBA diver, as well as woodshop experience.

The best fit for what is popular, from my experience, is my use of N95 with the elastic around the back of the head and metal nose clip, and with a full nomex hood which covers all the head and neck other than the eyes, which would have goggle protection.

To the latter, every time I deployed this as a PPE in a grass fire with goggles I'd still pick chunks out of my nose and eyes, nevermind the finer particles I'd chuck out for a couple days after.

To the former, it was a good fit until talking which would break the seal; more so if proper facial hair shaving wasn't followed.

Both of those are subject to facial features.

So my personal opinion about the ear hook style is they work: as placebo. They are dependent upon the muscular structure and stability of the mandible. Talking, especially those who do wiggle their ears (don't look at Obama, its funny), seal is constantly broken, especially on exhale. On the exhale, without a forced seal, opening appear and the air follows the path of least resistance and just goes a different direction.

On inhale, the person takes longer, deeper breaths, not only deep inhaling broken seals but whatever exhaust didn't leave the mask.

What that means is that person is taking deeper breaths of stuff which is supposed to be exhausted, such as if a person has been exposed to something, such as the Wu Flu, it get sucked deeper into the lungs.

For giggles, let's say someone's immune system has atrophied from lack of exposure to germs and viruses, and suddenly typical stuff in the air becomes quite a bit more dangerous.
