NYT: New York infected America with Covid-19 Virus

New York City was the Covid-19 volcano whose lava infected the rest of the country.  The New York Times reported:

New York City’s coronavirus outbreak grew so large by early March that the city became the primary source of new infections in the United States, new research reveals, as thousands of infected people traveled from the city and seeded outbreaks around the country.

The research indicates that a wave of infections swept from New York City through much of the country before the city began setting social distancing limits to stop the growth. That helped to fuel outbreaks in Louisiana, Texas, Arizona and as far away as the West Coast....

Most samples taken in Texas, Ohio, Louisiana, Idaho, Wisconsin and many other states carry distinct mutations that can be traced back to viruses introduced into New York.

Over all, Dr. Grubaugh estimated, infections spreading from New York account for 60 to 65 percent of the sequenced viruses across the country...

 “New York acted as the Grand Central Station for this virus, with the opportunity to move from there in so many directions, to so many places,” said David Engelthaler, head of the infectious disease branch of the Translational Genomics Research Institute in Arizona....

 Last week, Dr. Andersen of Scripps Research and other scientists analyzing the outbreak in New Orleans reported that all of the samples taken from New Orleans were from the line linked back to New York. The virus swept through the area in March and has killed more than 1,000 people.... Rest of article.

The communist rag National Review had a few things to say about New York infecting most of the country:

It brings to mind an old commercial:

How much of this is due to travel to NYC? I had business in NYC in November. I'm sure a lot of this is due to business/tourism in NYC in February and March. It's hard to avoid contact with that massive city.

NYC is the epicenter of The Rona because it is the capitol of the world. Lynn Fitch should sue NYC.

Believe ANYTHING in the national review or the New York Times at your own risk.

Both New York and Jackson are great case studies for what happens when you elect inadequate leadership,
You end up in bad situations, blaming others and making excuses. The current mayor of NYC Warren Wilhelm II
has been a politically correct abject failure. Chokwe got a head start on the Wuhan epidemic - he pre closed the libraries
And zoos. Pathetic leadership leads to pathetic outcomes.

Two thoughts:

1) I always think it’s amazing how the NYT is a liberal bastion, never to be trusted... until you cherry pick something you like. All of the sudden, it’s the national paper of record again. Pick a side. Either it is, or it isn’t.

2) Of course a large population center and popular tourist destination is the source of spread. Where else would it come from? Do you know of any direct flights from China to Jackson’s airport? Further, 1 in 38 people in the US lives in the New York area. If our fair state had any tourist attraction worth a damn, or had any significant population to speak of, we’d be in a similar place. Also, this virus was spreading for months before there was any significant domestic surveillance. Why? Because our government failed to act on global health surveillance data. We sat around and banged a drum of ignorance and denial (it could never happen here) until it was all around us. Only then did we act, after the horse was out of the barn. Prevention could have saved tens of thousands (perhaps hundreds of thousands before this is over).

We’re basically in a situation now where we can’t NOT open because of a lack of preparation. We’re directly ignoring the opening criteria established by the White House because we simply don’t have testing capacity (refused to use the WHO tests which other nations embraced) to open... but the economic impact is deepening each day. I don’t know what would have happened if someone else would have been in office, but getting elected means you take the good with the bad. Next time, perhaps it’s a good idea if we don’t have a carnival barker as our President — just in case some real shit goes down. Again.

(What a misnomer) The National Review and the New York Times have always published facts that support their point of view and rely on information from people who have some knowledge of a subject. Neither have historically made any denials about their "slant" is conservatively oriented and one is liberally oriented and I knew that in junior high or sooner.
They label opinion pieces as opinions and letters to the editor are on the editorial page.
Your sources, among other bogus practices, report a letter to the editor or opinion piece as " news published in one of those two publications" rather than a journalistic piece.
Your sources pull unverified BS off UTube and reddit and from self-published books. Indeed, rather a lot comes from Russian propaganda organs.
Please read the Congressional intelligence reports..the Senate one might have some credibility with you.

"...distinct mutations that can be traced back to viruses introduced in New York."

Some of you need to know what mutations of a virus mean. You may need a dictionary, but for God's sake, try be informed before your ignorance and greed bring this Nation to it's knees.

If every news outlet including infowars repeats the same lie does that magically transform lie to truth? Consensus just equals conspiracy.

8:58 - So, if I understand your post, it's YOU against the rest of the world, right? You're not paranoid, right. Everybody is out to get you.

Sad, but true said...

I and I alone know the truth, but I don't remember it.

Just Sayin' said...

The NYT is my go-to source for fake news.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
