Lockdown demonstration related infections reflected in typical Michigan/Wisconsin rural county

Anti-lockdown protests are working…if killing off idiots is the real goal…

From one rural county in Michigan that had less that 5 COVID patients before the lockdown demonstrations:

“As of Wednesday, May 13, 2020, county health officials say, 510 residents have the virus — about one third were diagnosed in the last week. So far, 21 children age 9 or younger have the virus; those between the ages of 30 and 39 comprise the most cases, 95.”

UK Independent: Seventy-two individuals who tested positive for Covid-19 in Wisconsin recently attended a “large-gathering” before their diagnosis, according to a report.

According to The Progressive, the state’s Department of Health Services (DHS) confirmed that they had gathered tracing data on a number of people who had contracted the virus.

“We were able to pull some limited data—out of 1,986 cases with onset/diagnosis on or after 4/26, there were seventy-two cases who reported attending a large gathering,” DHS spokesperson Jennifer Miller was quoted as saying in an email to The Progressive.

The information comes to light after last month hundreds of people in Wisconsin attended a mass protest at the governor’s stay-at-home order.

However, it is not possible to say if any of these cases trace back to the rally as the health department is not tracking attendance of specific events.

“Possible exposures during protests haven’t been specifically added to the database because we already ask about large gatherings,” Ms Miller allegedly said.

“Contact tracers do ask if patients attended mass gatherings, but not specifically about protests, so there’s really no data on who may have contracted Covid-19 at a protest,” she added according to The Progressive

The rally outside Wisconsin’s capitol building in Madison drew hundreds of protesters who demanded Democratic Governor Tony Evers reopen the state.  read more…

  2. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. And she appears to have retained her sanity through the prep and practice it would take to achieve that proficiency. How many times did she have to listen to that? I shudder at the thought. What a trooper. LMAO

    • A lecture in health statistics might help you along.

      If not for trump, 2k would have died.

    • Having spent much of my childhood in rural/small town Wisconsin, SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 thinning the herd of these protesters is not too much of a loss (they have to be the intentionally wrongly bred persons Duff has written about), but sadly they may help to spread the infection to more valuable people.

      The Driftless Zone of SW Wisconsin is a lovely place (especially on two wheels, on the trails, or paddling a canoe or kayak), except for the lack of jobs and the attitudes of too many of the people that live there.
