Health Department Warns Pandemic Worsening

The State Health Department held a press conference on the Covid-19 virus today.  Video of the presser is posted below. Some highlights are:




* Dr. Byers said cases among young people are increasing. He said the vast majority of 18-29 year olds will suffer only light symptoms if infected. However, he said the increased transmission among them means it will spread to the more vulnerable population.
* The sharp rise in cases is not tied to one county or event. Dr. Byers said "we are seeing community transmission." He blamed people coming to social events for such transmission.

People are going about life without a single care. No masks, no distancing, no precautions. The increase is cases is not surprising, and will continue to get worse if nothing changes.

Look at the hospital numbers in other states. We cannot afford to run out of beds and space. THINK PEOPLE.

Q predicted this Plandemic as well as the pending failure of the Three Gorges Dam in China. The free internet will go dark and we will pn3ly be left with online shopping, social media, and MSM sites.

Like I care what a trained medical doctor who works in public health like Dr Dobbs says about wearing a mask and social distancing and the vulnerable dying. I read a Facebook post that my good buddy Billy Joe Bubba posted that said that's all a bunch of hawg-wash. I ain't skeered.

It is not wise to anger the Q.

Dr. Dobbs is now concerned. Hmmm. Let's see. Early in a pandemic (before it had really spread) he and the governor "opened" the economy and that was good. But did they require continued closure of those small room, crowded, close-spaces (salons, barbershops, bars and restaurants) where people (especially young infectious people) would easily transmit the virus? Nope. This is a "duh" moment. Crowded, closed-space, breath-on-me is how we get the bug. This isn't rocket science.

Who is the Q????

Is that the same Dobbs that pulls his mask down every time he speaks?

Clearly providing evidence that masks don't work and he agrees that they are simply a feel-good measure?

That same Dobbs?

Suggestion for Dabbs now that “common sense” and the “simple things” are the order of the day. The situation you find yourself in is of your own making. It is untrue that “early on” you recommended universal masking. Matter of fact the message was masks are not necessary for the general public. Instead you went with universal lockdowns that effectively decimated the livelihoods of many, young and old. Just two days ago to emphasize the “simple things”, like mask wearing, you said “You don’t have to shut everything down” (in presser posted on this blog). So in the aftermath of the decimation of asinine lockdowns, if you want to get your message across to young people, I would suggest first of all losing the pissy attitude. That’s common sense that it doesn’t work with young people. Then I’d admit that initially you were wrong. Both are tried and true “common sense” ways to deal with young people.

It's becoming more clear that all of the mandated masking of the past few weeks is coming home to roost with a higher infection rate.

The infections (this week) do not appear to be clustered like one would expect in an open, everyday situation with no social distancing or mask wearing. We do know that mask wearing and lessened social distancing because it has provided a false sense of security.

Now that flaw is being exposed with resurgent infections.

8:52 What he needs to do is state unequivocally that if hospitalization rates and infection rates don't show a significant two-week decline before August 1 then there will be no large gatherings allowed. No school sports, no concerts, no bars, no nightclubs, no seminars, no public parks, etc. The economy doesn't need to be shut down, but they need to do something to corral the uncontrolled, untraceable spread of the disease. Break up the places where you can see one person infect 20 or 30 more as best you can.

9:26 We know nothing of the sort. Do you have pictures of the frat parties at Ole Miss showing everyone wearing a mask? Dr. Dobbs specifically said the latest infections were clustered in young patients, and those are the ones least likely to use a mask in the first place. Show me some evidence that 90% of the people who tested positive for COVID in the past week said they consistently wore a mask and then I'll give your theory some credence, but until then it sounds like you are making stuff up to support your anti-mask agenda.

How we going to get the kids back in school with this pandemic worsing?
We are going to end up with a lot more ignorant kids.

Why is Dobbs not preparing the medical community for this on slaughter of Covid cases he predicts. Should he not begin to re-organize the hospitals and health care community to better care for these larger numbers of Covid patients? Should he not be preparing mobile/tent city hospitals or making use of large vacant commercial properties so the hospitals and nursing homes will not be over run with Covid patients and then jeopardize and infect other patients and residents. Quit telling me what I am not doing and start doing your job as the health care leader for our State. Start thinking out of the box with solutions and stop your whining!

10:01, judging from some of the comments on this blog, we certainly can't afford to risk having more ignorant kids.

A study on mask use came out today. Guess what? The area of Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky came in dead last on mask usage with only 1/3 of people saying they regularly wore masks in public.

What is it going to take to get people to do simple things to control the spread of the disease? There is growing evidence that wearing a mask reduces the transmission of the virus from a sick person to a healthy one. Maintaining social distancing also helps. Many Mississippians are doing nothing and going on like there is no pandemic.

It is not inevitable that everyone will get infected. It is very likely a vaccine that provides at least one year of improved immunity will be available by the end of the year. Do your part to help everyone.

Tate Reeves needs to pass a law NOW making it illegal for you to enter a business without a mask on. We require it and half the people just walk in
anyway without one on, and when we ask them to put one on they either look lost or take offense. Its a burden, we have stop asking at this point.

Need more infected to increase antibodies and Herd effect. He said most young folks will have a mild case. So lock up me maw and pa paw. Stay out and unmasked.

The counties in Mississippi with the least amount of infections reported the lease amount of mask usage. Go figure.

9:25, Nailed it. Great.

"Tate Reeves needs to pass a law NOW making it illegal for you to enter a business without a mask on." Tate doesn't pass laws. He vetoes or signs accepting a law presented and passed by legislature. He probably doesn't want to go the Biden route stating everyone will be mandated to wear a mask under law. Would like to see the provisions of a law like that with penalties. Be known as Scaring the Sheep Law.

Vaccines are like masks, you cannot physically make everyone use a mask or get a shot.

don't look at me I've haven't had sex in 40 years. I'm not spreading covid 19 around.

Sheep don't wear masks. Smart people do.

Well now, this is just sad. She filed her motion on June 10. She set her motion to be heard on June 23. The Uniform Circuit and County Court Rules required the defendants to respond by June 20 which, being a Saturday, means the Rules required a response by Monday June 22. They responded early on June 19, but she complains that such does not give her adequate time to respond before the June 23 hearing. Her heritage does not have anything to do with this. It is a simple application of well-established rules of court.

B-b-but Q told me that covid comes from tortured baby bat hormones and pizza clocks.

Honestly, if you are believing this Q nonsense then there's no hope for you fools.

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.
