I'm curious about the context that could lie 3-4 layers away. The people burying her....how are they funded? Who approved their doctoral degrees, who sits on the board of the places they work, from whom do they receive their funding...

Before anyone thinks I'm making a case for....well, any position, the above is how our filthy world works. "Follow the money" but also "follow the influence" because simple stories aren't always simple.

People suck. Always have.

Those are always good questions to ask and I don't have that info myself but I do still believe that if this were a probability that someone somewhere else would have raised it too.

We could know it, and the intel communities would try to suppress as a TTP issue.
Just because it's a lab work doesn't mean it was purposely released, but China would "lose face" if their shitty lab procedures became general knowledge, so protecting the party becomes job #1.

I'm going to engage in some whataboutism to prove a point about media bias.

Trump, he's the president so he should be held to a higher standard, lied to keep people from panicking (his story). Got it, check, roger. The press has obliterated him. Again, he should be held to a higher standard.

A Democrat mayor and his staff deliberately withheld the numbers and used fraudulent data to close restaurants and bars. You barely see a peep in the media. CNN and MSNBC...zero coverage. Nothing on their websites.

Again, Trump should be held to a higher standard with a proportional response from the media IMO. With that said, liberal news organizations won't even cover the story? Not one bit?

Kind of makes it hard for a case that the media is unbiased.

ETA; Spelling are hard

Here's the deal, there's not a fucking chance in hell I'm believing that the virus spreads well beyond 6-feet. If anything it would have to be significantly less. Because, given how contagious this has been, how have we not seen these riots and protests falling apart because of COVID-19 infections?

It could be argued that mitigation factors (masks/public health) are effective, and that the theory COVID is not dangerous in UV light may hold some weight. Simulated Sunlight Rapidly Inactivates SARS-CoV-2 on Surfaces

I'm pulling these screenshot from the CDC so take the data for what you will; but it does look like cases trended highest around when protest where most reverent, but deaths have been trending down; possibly better treatments, or perhaps people with less comorbidities getting it?

It does seem that certain states are being hit more, but the connection between protests/infection isn't clear to me without digging into what's happening in those states specifically. Like, I get that Cali, Wisconsin, and Georgia could be protest related, but Texas/Florida/Tennessee?

When the CDC came out with the statistics for strictly COVID caused deaths, the tracker on google changed to reflect it. The other day I checked it and it was back to the normal count (195k+) and it said COVID "Linked" deaths. Now it's back to the original stats again. Am I missing something?

Didn't you hear? Here in Wisconsin it is all due to students existing. Or, so I've been told 🙄

But, definitely not the protests (riots).

What scientific evidence do you have that leads you to that belief?
Absolutely none other than the fact I've been living and within in the confines of the current restrictions and exposed to enough people that we should open the bitch up.

You had "scientific" experts saying that anti-lockdown protests spread the virus and then that Anti-Police violence protests didn't. They're linked in this thread.

The people, everywhere have been done with this stupidity for a long time.
