My MiL is a charge nurse on the L&D floor at the hospital we went to for our first kid. My wife talked to her yesterday and their Covid guidelines were quite surprising to us. My wife is allowed 1 supporting person, 1 doula, and 1 visitor a day that is not under 14 and who cannot come back once they leave the floor that day. To top it off, we would be expected to wear masks the entire time, even while sleeping.

I'm not sure how helpful wearing a mask will be while sleeping if we would be living in the room for 3 days, especially with how intimate a nurse becomes with a patient and their body/fluids.

Nevada warned against using Chinese-made COVID tests
#haditwiththisbullshit
Didn't we already know to stop using this? I swear this has come up a million times when people were praising the Chinese government for sending kits out and the Italians were like: These Don't Work.

Err it was the Spanish. Chinese tests were 30% accurate.

Spain, Europe's worst-hit country after Italy, says coronavirus tests it bought from China are failing to detect positive cases

Not sure if Spain had the same tests but the problem here was the origin. They went through the UAE and I don't believe the hospitals knew they were Chinese.

The UAE unwittingly or knowingly laundered faulty Chinese COVID tests?

I don't generally believe in this type of coincidental accident.

From the article:
The documents illustrate how the U.S. government actively — if quietly — tried to keep the state out of a project involving the Chinese firm BGI Group, which is the world's largest genetic sequencing company and which has expanded its reach during the coronavirus pandemic.

The donation offer to Nevada also involved a shadowy Emirati company called Group 42, which partnered with Shenzhen-based BGI to create a rapid-testing system in the United Arab Emirates. G42 and government officials in the UAE did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Group 42 has also paired with Israeli companies to work on CV-19 testing and is the first UAE company to open an office in Israel, doing so within days of the Accord announcement.

Shit like this is why people believe in shadowy cabals pulling strings...

So...you're telling me I haven't caught the 'Rona because I wash my mouth out with Listerine?

Something to think about in regards to what a positive test means. Nick Saban, head coach of Alabama had no symptoms this week at all. The day before his positive test result he had a negative test. In the three days following he took five tests, all five were negative.

Saban gets 3rd negative test, can coach vs. UGA

Nick Saban could test positive for anything and everything. 'Bama would find a way to put him on the sideline come Sat. Negative tests, kill the docs and lab workers involved, whatever.

Going through God Emperor Newsom's new restrictions for California during Thanksgiving just making sure hotels weren't being closed as I'm going back to enemy territory to visit with my family. Thankfully, it looks like we're ok. I guess eating though is going to be painful.

California Gov. Newsom's Thanksgiving rules explained as severe restrictions put in place

I posted something similar over on the politics thread since it could be both places. I told me wife that if we still lived in Cali, his edicts would not change my plans; in fact, just to be a smart ass, I would invite a lot of people over for Thanksgiving.

I bend in a lot of places, but The Man telling me what I can/can't do on my property? Yeahhhh.....

Yeah I saw that there. Figured it could use further discussion here since the discussion continued on a different path.

What this does, just like Cuomo in New York is willfully puts Law Enforcement in harms way. Private citizens having a peaceful meal? Illegal, send the cops.

And in this dumpster fire, a baby. A beautiful, Kiwi baby. Like @pardus
That's right BITCHS!


Covid has been my entire life this whole goddamn shitty fucking cuntface of a year. I'm currently in a shitty alcohol free sand box running an ISOFAC for Uncle Sam, and I worked in an ER in NY close to the epicenter of the outbreak during the first dodgy months, I've been surrounded by cases almost everyday. I haven't been the best with wearing PPE strictly occording to the regs, but am yet to catch it (5 neg tests thus far) as of today's date.
I'm fucked if I know what to think about transmission, I haven't seen much personal evidence that it's easily transmittable despite what we've been told, I'm a bit of a skeptic about the airborne claims, but with no evidence at all to dispute it, and I do not. I follow whatever the CDC says.
My personal thoughts, as of today, are that when a person is susceptible to becoming infected then they will get infected, if not then they are OK until the next time.
Ive been saying it since day one, it's going to take years to work this bastard virus out.
I didn't think NZ took the right path @SpitfireV , but they've been doing really well so far which im happy about though surprised. I am for the Swedish model (but fuck Sweden).

We shall see, it's early days yet...

Good to know you’re well mate. The Swedish model seems to have some value & it looks as if lockdowns are being thought of as counterproductive due to mental health issues & more importantly economic ones & the fiscal cliff will arrive some time next year.

:thumbsup:
Yes it was obvious right from the start that the lockdowns were going to have a terrible affect on society, the USA is finding that out with the riots etc... now. No bloody good.
