Democrats repeat the number of “deaths” and “cases” like they are forensic specialists, from what they hear on MSM. Pathetic.

Covid outbreak at Bayberry nursing home in downtown Concord..

94521 August 1, 2020 at 12:53 PM

The rate of people dying who aren’t in nursing homes is going up.

Russ Sayin August 1, 2020 at 3:05 PM

Agreed. Slowly the gap has been widening. Soon it will be more than 50% and the nursing homes won’t be the worst hit. (Are you listening people that continue to have parties???)

A Dog August 1, 2020 at 4:22 PM

Hey 94521. I enourage you to note the article from claycord earlier this week showing Concord, Walnut Creek, Clayton, Pleasanr Hill (and CDC website) on how many deaths outside of nursing homes (70 total)…wait for it… only 2. Also the narrative that parties and mask resisting folks abound and are the culprits for further spread, no evidence to that at all. Everyone I see is wearing a mask, careful, and courteous. I’m all for precautions and being courteous of others as well as mindful of those who are in that vulnerable population (I bet the 2 out of the hundreds of thousands were also vulnerable immune btw) Please let’s get real instead of spreading the notion of widening gaps everywhere and doomsday upon us. Let’s band together and not turn on each other with assumptions. I love stats that tell an accurate story. Take a look for yourself.

2 deaths outside nursing homes don’t feed the fear propaganda narrative. All the normies would freak out knowing that the government has put us all through all this for 2 deadies outside of nursing homes. Then normies would figure out how they have been scammed, rise up and cause trouble as they implement their evil globalist takeover of the planet. This way is much calmer, most wont understand until it’s to late.

Husband Jim spoke with a colleague in Santa Clara yesterday. He had just recovered from COVID-19. Age early 40s. Said he’d never been so sick on his life. For 2 wks he had severe symptoms: lung and body pain, complete loss of sense of smell and taste for 3 days, high fever, chills, cough. Had nightmares and hallucinations. Said walking upstairs was like a 12 mile run. Lungs so painful he couldn’t lie on his back, had to sleep sitting up, and for 3 days he couldn’t even bear to put a shirt on so much pain. Recovered over the 3rd week.

Wife got it too with mild symptoms. 2 children at home, late teens and 20, also tested positive but were asymptomatic.

Puffandstuff August 1, 2020 at 1:28 PM

I had a flu two years ago with symptoms just like the one you describe your friend as having. It’s terrible. Glad he’s ok and I’m glad I was too.
It’s all going to be ok stay positive people and be thankful of our immune systems when they work correctly. Exercise, get sleep, don’t touch your face in public ect.
Most importantly do not use this virus to divide us …

Hanne Jeppesen August 1, 2020 at 11:34 PM

Sounds horrible, but there are some people that comment often here on Claycord you cannot convince that this is real, or wearing masks works. Someone called me a coward I let my employer dictate that I wear a mask. I work at Macy’s in Sun Valley Mall. Nice people now you get ridicules for wanting to hold on to your job. Macy’s also ask their employee’s to wear mostly black or dark clothing, don’t see the difference.

Mary Fouts August 2, 2020 at 2:28 PM

@Hanne Jeppesen – You are spot on. I’ve stopped trying to reason with people who are anti-mask and anti-social distancing because ‘we live in a free country’, think COVID is merely a political ploy, think COVID economic shutdowns and restrictions are tyranny. These people won’t change … Until, perhaps, they themselves or a loved one contract COVID-19 and become very ill, possibly die, or possibly are left with lire long debilitating health problems from COVID such as lung, heart, and neurological problems. As the saying goes, you can’t reason with crazy and you can’t argue with stupid.

Mask wearing, social distancing, and hand washing is simple stuff.
Mask wearing also has not changed any of my beauty/makeup routine, including always having my must-have lipstick or lipgloss on.

Controversy is a tribute to poor education in sciences afforded younger generations and add to that propensity of media to sensationalize over calmly providing facts.

Then there are politicians and unelected bureaucrats more comfortable with threats and intimidation than education, to gain compliance.

WhoDat Gurl August 1, 2020 at 3:51 PM

So a County if 1.2 million people are still having their Civil Liberties restricted, by only 120 people have died from COVID. The recovery rate is 99.7 % folks, and most of the people who die are elderly and already immunocompromised. Stop listening to these Public Health alarmists and use your brain. Wash your hands and get on with your lives.

Sam August 1, 2020 at 4:17 PM

They won’t stop until they are removed from office.

Me August 2, 2020 at 9:40 AM

Explain to me how you got a 99.7% recovery rate when 119 died and over 800 still have it?

Frustrated August 1, 2020 at 4:18 PM

Possibly the reason death rate is low is because of SIP and people following guidelines. Whether people agree or not, it seems worth having everyone wear masks and follow the guidelines for two weeks and see what happens. I want everything opening safely. Maybe if more people would have done this in the first place we’d be in a much better situation now.

Michael Hunt August 1, 2020 at 7:36 PM

Makes you wonder how good our numbers would be if not for Richmond, San Pablo, bay point, Antioch. Maybe we should do better outreach to these areas and more testing.

WC Resident August 1, 2020 at 10:32 PM

The issue is not outreach but rather that people in those income brackets tend to have more people living in each household, live in buildings with shared facilities such as the laundry room, and work in essential services jobs where they either have to be physically close to co-workers as part of their job and/or interact directly with the public as part of their job. As they are low income their health both tends to be worse than average and they have less access to healthcare.

Richmond, San Pablo, Bay Point, and Antioch have a combined total of 23 deaths in the community and three in long term care facilities.

Concord, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, and Orinda have a combined total of three deaths in the community and 72 in long term care facilities.

The total populations are 277,789 for the first group and 254,279. Economic status makes a huge difference.

is the glass
half full
half empty
Stay positive, people.
The virus is real; wash your hands, wear your mask in public places.
But p l e a s e stop pushing that darn panic button. It only creatives mass hysteria!

Kentucky Derby August 2, 2020 at 4:21 PM

There’s a big difference between wearing a mask, social distancing, hand washing, etc. and keeping things in perspective – and people that are so paranoid of Covid 19 that they have no idea how asinine they look to the rest of us. You can take this seriously without looking seriously paranoid. It has nothing to do with Covid 19. These are overly dramatic people that make a mountain of out of molehill in everyday living. They’re very draining, and they’re emotional vampires.

Justifiable languor August 2, 2020 at 6:07 PM

I agree. The hysteria caused by Fauci and others in the news is suspect. Mask wearing, social distancing, and hand washing are easy enough to practice, but this closing down of privately owned businesses while politicians are meeting in churches and other public places is proof. Okay for me but not for thee. A path for voter fraud.

Meanwhile, illegals are running the border into sanctuary states. 21.8 Billion for California alone according to FAIRUS.gov. Rioters are marching, beating citizens and burning cities. Historical art is toppled. Libraries are now being targetted. Willful ignorance is rampant. Yes, some get a horrible version of this flu, most don’t. I am sorry for their suffering. But to close down the economy while letting certain members continue to pillage our country more than a double standard. It is criminal. It is a coup.
