All of them, them biznatches are bad news
I trust Elon Musk as much as I trust Laz' old lady
if trump is a sleazebag snake oil con child what do you call chuck schumer?
Thats the same point I have been trying to make.
I bet if we looked at flu deaths we would see similar results. Most people dying from flu also having underlying conditions. As a matter of fact. a quick search produced similar warnings for people wit underlying conditions at risk of having severe cases for flu as for covid. Elderly over 65, People with diabetes, heart disease. asthma, etc.
Here is an article that pre dates the pandemic
Almost all of the underlying conditions are serious but manageable. Most for decades. It is the introduction of COVID and to a lessor extent, flu.
If not for the added disease. These people likely would not be dead.
Pointing to a low number of people who died purely from COVID is silly and meaningless that is only made for political purposes. few people die from any illness purely from the illness alone but also from the other complications and other underlying conditions.
I see there that the UK, Peru and Chile each have more covid deaths per 100K than the US
So Im guessing you are going to UK sites and telling them that Boris Johnson and that the "B.J. virus" killed all of their people?
Peruvian sites and telling them that Martín Vizcarra killed all of their people, and to Chilean sites
and telling them that Sebastián Piñera killed all those people in Chile?
With your rhetoric. Dont think you are any better or different than the shills on the right you are critical of. You are merely the flip side of the same worthless wooden nickle.
My wife works in a hospital where she sees where a lot of people come from.
For a country that has "worse" health care. A lot of people show up here from India and Asia in general as well as quite a few other countries to get it. Between 100,00 and 200,00 per year
"Despite rising costs, the U.S. health system continues to attract foreigners because of its high-quality services and its closeness to large patient markets."
'Close to 100% accuracy': Helsinki airport uses sniffer dogs to detect Covid

Sniffer dogs used to detect coronavirus in Helsinki airport as part of trial – video
Four Covid-19 sniffer dogs have begun work at Helsinki airport in a state-funded pilot scheme that Finnish researchers hope will provide a cheap, fast and effective alternative method of testing people for the virus.
A dog is capable of detecting the presence of the coronavirus within 10 seconds and the entire process takes less than a minute to complete, according to Anna Hielm-Björkman of the University of Helsinki, who is overseeing the trial.
“It’s very promising,” said Hielm-Björkman. “If it works, it could prove a good screening method in other places” such as hospitals, care homes and at sporting and cultural events.
After collecting their luggage, arriving international passengers are asked to dab their skin with a wipe. In a separate booth, the beaker containing the wipe is then placed next to others containing different control scents – and the dog starts sniffing.
If it indicates it has detected the virus – usually by yelping, pawing or lying down – the passenger is advised to take a free standard polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, using a nasal swab, to verify the dog’s verdict.
In the university’s preliminary tests, dogs – which have been successfully used to detect diseases such as cancer and diabetes – were able to identify the virus with nearly 100% accuracy, even days before before a patient developed symptoms.
Scientists are not yet sure what exactly it is that the dogs sniff when they detect the virus. A French study published in June concluded that there was “very high evidence” that the sweat odour of Covid-positive people was different to that of those who did not have the virus, and that dogs could detect that difference.
Dogs are also able to identify Covid-19 from a much smaller molecular sample than PCR tests, Helsinki airport said, needing only 10-100 molecules to detect the presence of the virus compared with the 18m needed by laboratory equipment.
Authorities in Vantaa, the city where Helsinki’s international airport is located, said the pilot programme, which is due to last four months, was costing €300,000 (£274,000) , which it said was significantly lower than for laboratory-based testing methods.
Although Covid-19 is known to infect mink and cats, dogs do not have the receptors necessary for the virus to readily gain a foothold and do not appear to be easily infected, according to Hielm-Björkman. There is no evidence that they can transmit the virus to people or other animals.
A Finnish organisation that specialises in training animals in scent detection, Wise Nose, is training a total of 16 dogs for the project, 10 of which are eventually expected to be able to work at the airport. Working in shifts of two, four of them – ET, Kossi, Miina and Valo – started on Wednesday.
Researchers in countries including Australia, France, Germany and Britain are reportedly working on similar projects but Finland is the first country in Europe to put dogs to work sniffing out the coronavirus. A similar trial started at Dubai international airport last month.
Not unlike Death by Powerpoint
I am semi ashamed to say there is a Curling Club in my town...
Id say you should drop in to watch a game & have a few beers but they released a plague with the express purpose of disrupting packed houses of curling fans
See youre practically Canadian. Maybe we can work together to purge the pinko stink from our beloved Great White North
Youd be a damn good curler too. Hows your prowess with a broom? Youre a natural born sweeper I bet
"...it's Murderface on a breakaway.....he shoots he scoressss!!!"
I like peeps from Michigan. Great hockey players, the state is practically in Canada
Murder did I read it right, are you from Michigan?
yeahhh lets start the showwww
we got a great show for yall today man
