C19 Update: More Cases, More Deaths

The Mississippi State Department of Health reported 675 new cases of the Wuhan virus yesterday as well as 20 new deaths.   The total number of cases is 26,567. The virus has caused 1,059 deaths. Nursing home deaths comprise 50% of overall Covid-19 deaths in Mississippi. There are 17,242 recoveries.  More information and a complete list of infected counties can be found at the MSDH website.  Unfortunately, the Rt factor remained at 1.19.

Hospitalizations and ICUs rebounded to remain at near-record highs. 

The Rt value slipped to 1.19 but unfortunately is still above 1.0. Rt website.

The backlog of deaths that were reported today really did a number on the death rate. It had looked like it was declining steadily since the first of June, but now it looks like it leveled out around June 12.

LCTF residents only accounted for about 40% of deaths since June 1.

That Rt rate is pretty high. Things are going to get much worse if we don't get it below 1 before schools start back.

This has been such a nothingburger. I was promised The Walking Dead but instead got a "woke" low budget remake of They Live staring Jim Parsons and Jussie Smollett replacing Roddy Piper and Keith David. Yuck.

1:46 PM said, europe is almost done with is asia.

Is that really true or did you just hear it from CNN?

Another 675 cases today? It's because you dummies aren't wearing your mask correctly. Cover your nose! And how many people are not wearing their mask when they are outside walking or driving their car! Just because you are by yourself doesn't mean you're safe and social distances people come on man! Some of you are staying 6ft apart and not an inch more! If possible, stay 20 ft apart.

@1:46 Not sure why you say that. Europe had 12,000 new cases yesterday and 12,800 new cases today. That's actually what some people would call an increase.

Asia had 46,000 new cases two days ago, another 46000 new cases yesterday, and another 44,000 cases today. So 136,000 new cases in 3 days?

But, whatever fits your self righteous narrative...

@2:49 The U.S. leads all large countries now in cases per one million people. Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium, etc. have fallen like stones down the list as they managed to at least temporarily contain widespread infections. You'll still find those western European counties dominate the top 10 in deaths per one million people, but the U.S. is closing in fast and we should all know by know that there is a lag between infections and deaths and one leads to the other.

The politicization of this thing has been so sad to behold. We are failing as a people here folks. We are losing to a strand of RNA and some proteins, spreading blindly through our own behavior.

Less than 1% overall infected in USA with a very survivable virus. Jesus Christ, get real. Hope all bitch like this when a real problems occurs. You all honestly think we have begun the 7 years of Tribulation or Armageddon? Sheep all.

I really don't want to get into this debate, but the comment at 1:25 is pretty funny.

1:21, yes the backlog of mis-classified deaths - once hospitals figured out they could get 3x the reimbursement for a COVID death, errybody died of COVID.

What's the reward for a positive diagnosis? Did I hear $14k? Asking for a friend.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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.
