Keep up the good works folks. Infected with deaths down. Appears that the recovery rate is also getting better which means more antibodies. Have a good fourth all.

Funny. Twice the death rate of WWII and you think things are "looking up?"

Yeah, if your name is Jim Jones and you are passing out the Jonestown Tea Party refreshments.

BTW, 8 > 13 does not follow. F.

The "recovery rate" is actually just "presumed recovered." Cases are presumed recovered if: 1) it has been 14 days or more since the case tested positive, if they were not hospitalized; 2) it has been 21 days or more since the case tested positive, if they were hospitalized or hospitalization was unknown.

The reported recovery rate means nothing and is just a guess. The duration that people are sick varies greatly. But at least they're not counting deaths in their "recovered" numbers.

Worldwide Covid deaths listed at about 500,000. No idea where the death rate is two times that of WWII. Worldwide infected going on 10,000,000 with recovered, as of todays date 4,917,328. Deaths directly caused by the war (WWII) (including military and civilians killed) are estimated at 50–56 million people, while there were an additional estimated 19 to 28 million deaths from war-related disease and famine. So yeah, we are looking up.

Another 465 people today? At this rate, we will all have it in 6,774 days, and in another 21 days we'll all bed dead.

Why do you stupid covidiots not see that every single person will die because the scientific evidence is there. We have consensus, and there's no greater science than consensus.

I'm going to go cry now.

419000 dead/1350 days is 310 deaths a day for the US in WWII, Hoss.

At best, we worked our way down to equal when we had 300 deaths a day from Covid, nationally, and Pence then CALLED Rep. Senators to tell them that's "good news." Oops. Spoke too soon.

Now, that's roughly EQUAL to WWII death rates for a few days (after months of 1000 or 2000 dead a day), until the recent surge, but now we are back up to 492 a day (500).

An R naught of 1.26 could lead, soon, to 60,000 cases a day, with a death rate of 1% is going to be 600 dead a day.

If we are lucky to get .5 percent, it's still as bad as WWII. With no upper limit in sight other than maybe a couple of grand a day.

Again, we are already back to not only the previous high in new cases, but 45,000 NEW cases a day, which is more than EVER.

The overall average for Covid death to date in the US is 853 Dead a day. Versus 310 in WWII. Ouch.

Yes, we at least have gone back to double US WWII casualty rate given the current new case load.

We may be headed to nearly 7 times the rate which we saw back in April, BECAUSE WE HAVE SET NEW RECORDS in INFECTION EACH DAY FOR TWO WEEKS.

But, hey, we've dropped from 2000 a day!!!!

Germany, 943 total dead.

Russia, 8900.

Japan, population 126,000,000, - 971 dead total, less than our state.

The US- 128,000 dead.

@3:30 while not admitting that WWII is the same as a viral pandemic, you fail to consider the fact that WWII’s total death count occurred over a six year (and 1 day) period. If you’re going to unfairly compare COVID-19 to WWII, at least extrapolate the current COVID-19 death rate over a six year period.

Did the health department ever solve the data fidelity issue, and how closely are health records and death certificates being examined. I'm getting the feeling that there are a lot of "died with" being recorded as "died from" COVID-19 in order to qualify for the higher reimbursement.

6:43, the death toll listed (400K+) is for US, not worldwide, which was 1941-5. The other poster attacking it threw in total international deaths, which did occur over a 6 year period, but the numbers for both WWII and Covid I put are for the US.

It's not unfair at all. Many researchers have put this out. Look at the "Librul" NY Times and its article on mass events. All to try to drive home that this is an extraordinary mortality event akin to war or severe natural disasters or famines. Which it is, but not 1918 yet. And we should hope that Covid will be under some kind of control in 2 years.

And, he's never picked up on the fact that the US pop. was only about 100,000,000 during the war. But I'm not telling him.

Regardless of numbers, it's the Covid Denial Death Squad that ignores that this pandemic is an extraordinary leap in mortality in the US, and it's hard to deny that we've screwed this up big time. At the cost of at least 100,000 lives, so far. Another 100,000 imminent. So very sad to see.

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.
