None of these numbers from MSDH are accurate. The website reports there being only 13 cases in long-term care facilities in Hinds County as of today, and I know of one facility alone that had several dozen residents test positive for Covid-19 last week.

Did Kingfish just have a stroke?

Why is every S an "F"

Looks likes someone needs a new 's' key in his fhit-berry.

If you were a regular reader of JJ, you would be familiar with the "f" in place of "s".

What if I'm NOT?

The graph of reported cases in Madison Co. was pretty consistent until about a week ago. Since Easter was 12 days ago, I'd like to know if family gatherings, church services, etc., account for it. With that information, I could make a more informed decision about my own behavior going forward. Do we in Mississippi have the contact-tracing capabilities necessary to make those kinds of determinations? If not, are we building them?

@1:31, are you not familiar with the rules of the internet? All newcomers must lurk 2 years before posting a comment. That's not specifically a JJ rule. But nevertheless a rule as old as USENET

I’ve read JJ since Steadivest. Refresh my memory about the f/s thing, please.

What you take to be an f is actually the so-called long s, also known as the medial s, to be differentiated from the terminal or short or round s, which we regard today as the conventional form. Throughout its history, the long s has always looked a lot like the lowercase f, to the extent of having a little nubbin vaguely reminiscent of a crossbar appended to its middle sometimes. But the two letters are not otherwise related.

I would imagine the numbers will stay steady if not slightly increase over the coming weeks. I work at one of the local hospitals and we are now testing for COVID on all patients, regardless of complaint/symptom. Also all patients undergoing outpatient procedures will be tested as well as all staff members. I’m sure the other hospitals will follow suit.

So why is KF using a medial “s”?
To give an antique look?
I’m obv curious. Might be important.

KF, why is it that hospital capacity is driving policy rather than a decrease in new cases?

Why wouldn't the percentage of contagious people who can exponentially spread the infection rapidly be more important?

In past epidemics, identifying and isolating the contagious and then those they exposed has been the key. It's a matter of significantly reducing the odds of encountering a contagious person.

Of the positive cases reported, are they all people who are contagious or are some, people who have had it?

Of those who have, is a mild case sufficient to develop enough anti-bodies to not be re-infected?

Is there any official follow-up on those who have had it ( at least encouragement) to see their regular physician after recovery to get a full evaluation of any lasting adverse effects and if so, is there a consistent protocol of tests that should be given?

I understand the concern with economic impact, but a temporary recovery could lead to a worse economic failure if we aren't given consideration to long term consequences but rather focusing entirely on short term inconveniences.

Epidemiologists know when we've reached the milestones needed. They know when we've reached " herd immunity".

Now, nearly one in every 300 Americans have tested positive.

New Zealand now has no cases.

And, if there is a vaccine..the earliest being October ( and even then, the availability needs to be massive), we won't know or be able to identify and priortize unless we all get on the same damn page.

1:59 is Right On! Why can't we start releasing contact tracing data. I would like to know Where these people likely got infected. New Orleans? Spring Break? Cruise? Family Member? Work? Wal-Mart? This is valuable information as things open up.

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.
