MN COVID-19 Cases Spike among Young Adults

2020 July 1
by bc3b

The media watches carefully and jumps on any spikes in coronavirus infections in any red states that reopened early (Georgia, Florida, Texas. Arizona) and it cautions about people attending church, frequenting bars and attending sporting events.

One thing the media has been (not so) strangely silent about is the effect of people attending mass protests becoming COVID-19 positive. This is true of the entire left. Comrade deBlazio has forbidden his coronavirus task force from asking people if they participated in mass protests withing the past month.

Here is data from the Minnesota Department of Health showing confirmed cases by age groups. Note the spike in cases confirmed by people in the 20-29 age group during the past three weeks. The number has tripled while other age groups have remained relatively flat. What could be causing this?

Like the record-breaking quarter, this is something CNN and the rest of the media won’t report.

    Ya know at this point I just call BS on the whole mess. Just because you test positive does not mean it is a death sentence. The severity depends on all sorts of personal medical factors. Then of course there is the misreporting, over reporting, classifying a sky diving death as CoVid, etc, etc, etc. Masks do work, mask don’t work, masks could cause issues unrelated to CoVid.

    I reached the ‘F it’ stage months ago. You are as likely to catch a normal flu and die of it as CoVid. Prove me wrong cause it appears the ‘experts’ can’t.

    Folks in MN ought to just walk into a crowd with a sign that says “CoVid Positive” coughing all the while. Be a great way to disable BLM. At least based on the chart BC provided.

    Eph #4 –

    The people who elected Trump won’t care any more what Bushbots – or even Gringo Jorge himself – say any more than they cared what the “conservative purists” at National Review said in 2016.

    They want their party back because destroying the country by gracefully losing to the Democrats is so laudatory.

    Pizza Hut’s largest franchisee (1,200 stores) files for bankruptcy.

    How’s being the Official Pizza of the NFL working out, Pizza Hut? Who makes a buying decision based on any company being the official sponsor of anything?

    With all the Pizza Hut stores closing, the closest one is 12 miles from my house. Not that it matters, because I hadn’t visited the now-closed one 3 miles from my house in 10+ years. And, my family eats lots of pizza.

    8, sounds promising.

    “You are as likely to catch a normal flu and die of it as CoVid. Prove me wrong cause it appears the ‘experts’ can’t.”
    I think this year’s normal flu death-count is 60,000.
    WuFlu is 130,000. So … maybe 2.5x or 3x at the end?
    Which pales beside earlier predictions like 2.2 million, or 10x normal flu.

    “WuFlu is 130,000. So … maybe 2.5x or 3x at the end?”

    Could be the likely number. But I question if that increase was induced. Like say a stupid NY gov forcing CoVid carriers into nursing homes that is a target rich environment for the virus. Back out the nursing home numbers and what do ya get?

    Flashback: “Boebert drove three hours from Rifle, openly carrying a handgun, to confront [Robert “Beto” O’Rourke] the presidential contender. She owns Shooters Grill in Rifle on Colorado’s Western Slope (where the waitstaff open carry loaded firearms in the establishment). ‘I was one of the gun owning Americans who heard you speak regarding your ‘Hell yes I’m going to take your AR-15s and AK-47s. Well, I’m here to say hell no you’re not.’”

    Something is not quite right… — — Why the frenzy by CNN and others in the cable news biz? Could it be that their own unreleased polling of likely voters say that Trump already has a lock on term 2?

    The Left never goes bezerk if they know they have the winning ticket. Fact they go quite smug and start measuring the curtains in the Blue Room.

  30. 2020 July 1 9:49 pm

    2 – I equally call mostly BS. the severity just isn’t there in majority of new cases.
    8 – They will not listen, they never listen.
    10 – on the flip side…

    19 – Good because as he’s proved he’s not an expert, and has done more harm than good.

    36 – No, it’s just an ever increasing drive to stop Trump from being able to communicate and frankly I think it’s working. Besides the left default position these days is to go bezerk… no matter how small or large the topic.

    I got another polling call from the DCCC yesterday – I took it this time as it was automated.. told it I was a female, aged in 35-45, with phd, voting for trump. What I found hilarious was there was a question about approval for president trump, there was no “approval” option, there was only “disapprove” or “unsure”. lol. That told me it was probably not a real poll. I suspect it was more an attempt to id who to call\not call in the future as gotv operations get started. But it is the 3rd time in 2 weeks an admitted D operation has called my number, of course they just say DCCC and I doubt many people actually know what that stands for.

    I see Ed Henry got fired from fox cause some old harassment claim dating back to 2011 – or at least that’s what they’re saying publicly. Not that I give a shit about Henry quite the opposite but that strikes me as some weak sauce, some one incident 9 years after the fact.

    There has been a spike in CoVid cases but the death rate not nearly as alarming. It would be an interesting study to compare the tactical practices in Q1/2 with those in Q3. It will come sometime in the future for sure, buried in some medical journal that the press will never report on.

    pretty good article, and although the author offers no “solutions”, he does make the call to start preparing for what comes next…which I am trying to do. He gives us years, I give us 11 months (I think June 2021 will be pivotal), I pray I am wrong.

    Drdog, I picked June 2021 simply based on what happened this year around the beginning of June, and figured what is rewarded is repeated. June is good protesting/rioting weather and the snot-nosed Gender Studies college students and other useful idiots will be available to swell the ranks of the mobs. Sooooo…

    I think our external enemies, and even some internal ones, got caught flat-footed by how quickly our society fell apart with just AntiFa and BLM pushing it. Next year I think they will be ready with their owns plans, and if (God forbid) “Joe Biden” is elected, I would expect a “Reichstag Fire” to kick things off. Even if Trump is still President I think they will try. Either way I think our society begins to unravel…it will just happen faster if the Democrats are in full control.

    Again, I pray I am wrong.

    Yeah, just let mobs stop cars and shoot people but don’t report it. When people carry and start to shoot back, drop the hammer on white racist terrorism nationwide.

    JRs author expects a transition time where red state traditional-culture people can break off and form a separate nation.

    46 – I’ve been wondering if that’s actually been a factor in the southwest usa spike. No but that was true pre-covid and nothing is going to change.

    I really think it’s combo of 3-4 things, 1. hot af so people staying inside vs spring, spreads way more easily inside (sunlight kills this fker in < 2minutes) it's far better to be out on a crowded beach than in some dark bar (why closing beaches imho is str8up stupid), 2. protest crap, 3. wuhan-worry fatigue\natural flare-up with reopening and mexico outbreak, 4. Far greater testing being done. 5... I'm never going to rule out, particularly in current environment a dedicated team of purposeful spreaders out there. As for hospitals what people aren't reporting is that a lot of the increase isn't people showing up a hospital for covid, it's been finding people who are there for normal stuff who actually pop positive before they have whatever procedure they're actually showing up for. Now I'm sure most of that is real in the sense they have it and didn't know it, but some of it strikes me as $$$ maker too on part of hospitals to juice some numbers. Right now despite the medias desire to hype shit to all hell it all seems very manageable, in fact it all seemed pretty manageable in April if people stopped the over-hype\over-reaction crap and just focused on the the obvious and hardest impacted. 49 - If he's in office they may no have to lift much of a finger.
