Senate passes $2.2 trillion emergency relief package

The bill would deliver historic levels of emergency aid across the economy, including to households, businesses, cities and states. It would expand unemployment insurance benefits and direct more money to cash-strapped hospitals. The package now goes for consideration to the House of Representatives, which is expected to vote on it Friday. President Trump has said he is eager to sign it.

No it wasn't. There are a large variety of factors that led to the Depression, but run on banks certainly did not help.
The Fed calling all loans due is the main trigger, but the collapse of the banks themselves were caused by the run on the banks. The Fed could have called all loans due and the economy survive if not for the panic run that immediately forced the banks to all go belly up

According to the Robert Koch Institut, the current german numbers are 194 dead, 36508 infected. Slowly catching up to Spains numbers in the infected department. Both numbers have been increasing daily, but not by much. 194 dead over the scale of time this has been going on is barely statistic jitter considered that statistically, ~2400 germans die each day from disease, age and random misfortune.

Worldwide over 472.076 are confirmed as infected, with 21.308 dead. Which means about 5% (really 4,5%) of confirmed cases. Considering the really lagging and non-perfect testing of this, many experts are claiming that the numbers of actual infected are actually at least ten times higher, which would give the virus a kill score of 0,45% for those weak in the math department.

A new model by the Oxford University challenges now the model of the Imperial College London which was the main decision factor for many countries to lock down. The current theory in that new model is that people were already getting infected since January at least and that there are already millions infected worldwide and also that half of the population of the UK is/was already infected, which is the country the study focuses on in it's model. We now really need large scale antibody testing to figure this out. If things go really well for humanity we might figure out that big parts of the population in western countries are already immune to it.

how many have been given papers saying they're an essential worker yet? I know 3 people.
I did, I think big corporations are doing it either expecting more curfews and lockdowns, and to cover places where there are already lockdowns.

I don't think smaller businesses have pre-written letters yet. It's just a hall pass to the cops that you're allowed to go outside, I'm sure I could start photocopying mine to hand out.

State of Alabama update: Late & Gay Edition

Today's numbers, with a special thanks to whomever archived the page while I was filling out paperwork.

386 confirmed cases (+171 from yesterday, a big jump)

2,812* tests processed (+491 with an asterisk)

*Total tested primarily represents tests that were satisfactorily performed by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) Bureau of Clinical Laboratories (BCL), along with some data from commercial labs. Commercial labs are required, by law, to report positive tests to ADPH. Some commercial labs do not report negative specimens.

IOW: all positive results must be reported, but some negative results may be missing from the tally

First in-state death reported today: a Jackson County resident and part time worker at Jackson County Courthouse. (archive)

The patient was not identified by name but a statement from the Jackson County Commission said the deceased was a part-time employee with the county. "The employee worked in a department at the Jackson County Courthouse that did not require regular contact with the public," the statement said. "All county employees who worked in the same department have been notified and none of them have reported any symptoms associated with the COVID-19 virus."

Went for a jog around the neighborhood today. Saw some stuff. Two girls washing cars in swimsuits, somebody's orange cat chilling under a carport, lots of other people out getting some fresh air. Everybody was in a typically southern friendly mood and seemed to be making sure to keep proper distance. Fuck that fatso who stopped to hock a glob at the crosswalk, though. Aside from that guy, you could pretty easily mistake this place for Mayberry at the moment.

Saw an EMS unit taking someone on a stretcher out of one house. I told myself the masks were all surely just standard procedure right now, and that person probably wasn't touched by the Peking Plague. Probably. Turned my ass around anyway and went home.

That's why its hoped the new testing kit will work out for people.

If it's proven they've already had it and it's passed then we can probably return to a more normal life rather quickly. There was a heck of a lot of bad flus going around from October onwards this year as well.

Weirdly, since I had that bad bout of flu I've not even had a sniffle since and I'm in a very at risk group.

That's the threat. However, that is the threat if you repeatedly breach what some worthless pig tells you to do (i.e. not the first time), or if you fight them.

You should be aware:
  • You do not have to give any information at all to a pig if you encounter them while walking around
  • You are obligated to give your name, address, and date of birth to a pig if you encounter them while driving
Obviously, one needs to be careful in the second case about avoiding self-incrimination if you're hundreds of kilometres from home. In that case, take the loss and make sure you don't get caught that far out again.

Talking to my solicitor, he does not believe that the various acts horseface is invoking change those requirements. Don't fight the pigs and give them a case to say you resisted. Don't help the pigs out in incriminating you by giving them information they aren't legally allowed to force you to provide. Don't be impolite. Do ask them for their identification so that you can file complaints and film them if they threaten you. But you are under no obligation to make their job of harassing real New Zealanders easier. It's horseface's fault that coronavirus was brought to New Zealand in the first place. Her pissant nanny state nonsense isn't going to accomplish anything at this point.

Prior to the semiautomatic ban I knew far more police officers with illegal firearms (generally illegally owned pistols) than regular decent working people. Now? Oh.. it might be neck and neck. The police don't respect the law, and they don't respect you. There's no reason to give undue respect to them, which is any respect at all.

From what I hear, it still has a lot of Commie shit in it:


They can keep my 1200 600 bucks. I don't want any of the other shit the Bill promises to do. If Donald Trump signs this, he's a fool. The backlash he'll get from this poisoned piece of pork isn't worth the meager help it will deliver to his supporters.


EDIT: I may be sucking cocks here. This could just be a bunch of blackpillers sperging over the earlier version of the bill. I will stand by my assertion that the original was full of Commie Shit, though.

The BBC always finds folks like this. Like how they find nurses in food banks despite a starting salary for them being £24k a year. They're the kind of morons who consider a holiday to the Seychelles or the Med once a year an essential.
well you can get 2 weeks med for 500€ including flights. and it IS fucking essential, humans are just not made to survive the winters in the grey waste of nothern europe.

Just curious since I'm assuming you're German, do you recall what that issue regarding the German method of counting Corona-related deaths was all about? I have only a vague memory of reading something about that at some point. I think it was about Germany ascribing Covid-19 as the cause of death only when no other cause could be identified, even when the identifiable cause, like organ failure, was ultimately due to a Corona infection.

Could be bullshit, though. I honestly don't recall the details.

You're really going to pretend that only one party put their bullshit in? If the refugees and migrants are Americans fleeing American plague zones that would be great. Probably not the case though.

Germany started contact testing really early on and was better at identifiying sick people (because of much bigger lab capacities than say, spain) which means that germanys "confirmed infected" number contains a lot more non-critical cases than the numbers of other countries. You can also tell by the age range of people confirmed infected containing many more younger people than the ones in italy and spain, that are mainly old people and mainly people that arrived at a clinic in already bad condition. It's very likely that countries like Spain and Italy have a huge number of unidentified cases that are asympthomatic or only lightly ill. So the smaller death toll in relation to the infected numbers is basically because of how well the countries have been handling this testing. South Korea is similar to Germany in this regard. Of course this basically makes comparing these numbers useless. which again, means we really really do need a lot more of testing.

The discrepancy overall with the old and sick people might be that germany locked down the retirement homes, various care facilities and hospitals to visitors basically as soon as the virus was identified as a danger. Culturally, germans also don't tend to live with older relatives but drop them off at specialized care facilities to be forgotten about. France is somewhere in between and does a lot of at-home care.

EDIT: Germany also started to take patients from other countries since our hospitals aren't overrun by this.
