More COVID-19 cases linked to California church services

Source: LA Times

More coronavirus infections have been tied to two Mother’s Day church services in Mendocino and Butte counties, officials announced this week.

That disclosure comes as Gov. Gavin Newsom is poised to provide plans for reopening California churches amid mounting pressure to allow in-person religious services both from protesters and President Trump, who is demanding that governors take action immediately.

Nine cases of COVID-19, the infection caused by the coronavirus, are now linked to the May 10 service held by the Assembly of God in the Mendocino County city of Redwood Valley. The service was livestreamed to congregants and included singing, county public health officials said Friday.

Mendocino County health orders permit churches to produce events that are livestreamed or recorded, provided certain precautions are taken. They include specific measures to mitigate the risk associated with singing, which experts believe can spew viral particles into the air.

This is why you can't just assume that COVID-19 only spreads in urban areas. Mendocino and Butte are two rural counties in California, and they are often the hub of a community. In South Korea, some of the early outbreaks were centered around churches.

2. Close quarters for at least an hour and they sing and breathe.

Perfect situation to spread CV.

4. Nobody's assuming COVID only spreads in urban areas.

Don't set up straw men for the satisfaction of knocking them down.

What people say is that it spreads more easily and more quickly in areas where there are a lot of people that are in a small area--which is exactly the point here. But buses, subways, restaurants, small stores, etc., etc., are much more common in urban areas so it's there you tend to get (notice "tend" higher numbers of cases from COVID spreading.

10. Trump says coronavirus 'bailouts' for blue states are unfair to Republicans

Trump has been pushing this talking point that COVID-19 is a blue state problem, which is also coupled with news reports that many minority communities have been hit hard. I am not saying I agree with Trump. Rather, this is a false talking point being pushed by the right.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/05/coronavirus-trump-says-blue-state-bailouts-unfair-to-republicans.html

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said that increased federal funding to help states recover from the coronavirus pandemic is unfair to Republicans, “because all the states that need help — they’re run by Democrats in every case.”

“You look at Illinois, you look at New York, look at California, you know, those three, there’s tremendous debt there, and many others,” Trump said in an interview with the New York Post published Monday.

By contrast, “Florida is doing phenomenal, Texas is doing phenomenal, the Midwest is, you know, fantastic — very little debt,” Trump said.

“I don’t think the Republicans want to be in a position where they bail out states that are, that have been mismanaged over a long period of time,” the president said.

6. New York's most devastating super spreader during the initial out break was in New Rochelle


By a man going to synagogues.

Religious ceremonies, including funerals have the worst combination of variables, dense, shaking hands, full throated singing.

People should do it Quaker style, quietly.

7. Is the U.S.A. going to implode when all the lawsuits come for Death Count Donnie or just him, post?

[Post election]

Whose held accountable, besides his apparently broke arse, since he lowers being POTUS to the dignity level of snake oil salesmen?

Death Count Donnie might be a dementia patient, that is both hilarious and sickening at the same time?
