    When someone tests positive, I feel like Clint Eastwood is saying: "Do you feel lucky, punk?" You just don't know who is not going to fare well.

    Agree on Vitamin D - we read early on of a connection between a Vitamin D deficiency and poor outcomes and have incorporated that vitamin in to our supplements.
    Yeah Deb. That was the natural vitamin D you get from normal sunlight. Is this derivative the same as natural?

    UK’s Prime Minister considers handing out free vitamin D in coronavirus fight


    05-Nov-2020 By Will Chu

    The UK Prime Minister could follow Scotland’s example by offering free vitamin D supplies to those shielding as the country hunkers down in the latest round of lockdown.

Had the Feds acted in a timely fashion rather than claiming that it was a Fake News! hoax and spent more time working on it and less time golfing, the results might have been different. It's a good thing Inslee has and is stepping up. That is leadership. It has been sorely lacking on a national level.

      A timeline of the coronavirus outbreak in Washington state is below.

      Jan. 21

      The first coronavirus case in the United States was confirmed in Washington state. The patient recently returned from Wuhan, China, where an pneumonia outbreak caused by the coronavirus started in December 2019. The person who returned to the United States did so Jan. 15. While originally thought to be spreading from animal-to-person, there are growing indications that limited person-to-person spread is happening, a news release from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. Its unclear how easily this virus is spreading between people.

      Feb. 29

Word of the death was initially emailed to staff at EvergreenHealth in Kirkland, where the first patient died. Dozens of residents reported symptoms at Life Care Center in Kirkland, roughly 20 miles from downtown Seattle, and the first death was linked there. Jackson High School announced a Monday closure after a student had a presumptive positive test. Two people treated for the coronavirus at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane were released Jan. 21. Health officials said Feb. 29 that what were seeing is the tip of the iceberg.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said all library locations and community centers would be closed starting March 14 until at least April 13. Some casinos stay open.
      Reason #1 why people turned on Chump. IF you fear catching the virus and are in a demographic that it kills at a higher rate then you would choose to vote absentee to help prevent catching and spreading the disease. Chump tried his dumbest to set up the narrative (urging HIS voters to vote in person - F their lives I guess) knowing the absentee votes would nto go his way. At least this stupid idea IS going to save lives.

          NFL expands bench area, requires players to put masks on after games

          Posted by Michael David Smith on November 3, 2020, 1:30 PM EST

          The NFL is stepping up its attempts to keep players apart during and after games.

          NFL Chief Football Administrative Officer Dawn Aponte announced today that the league is expanding the bench area during games and requiring masks after games in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

          The bench area, where players and coaches have long been required to stay between the 30-yard lines, will be expanded so that players and coaches can be anywhere between the 20-yard lines. The league will also add benches where that’s feasible, but will not provide more chairs, as players tend to crowd more closely together in clusters when chairs are available.

          The NFL is also requiring players and staffers to have masks on after games. Although that had already been encouraged, now players are being told that putting masks on before post-game handshakes or other activities on the field is a requirement.

          One thing that would be easy to implement is the widening of the sidelines. That would give them more room and hopefully distance different player groups (offense/deffense/ST) so that a whole team would be less susceptible to contracting COVID. Not rocket science really.

          And masks should be mandatory. If a player doesn't want to wear safety equipment, he loses his salary and an accrued year.

          You put the helmet and mask on while you are on the field and take it off on the sideline and social distance.


          Again, not rocket science.
          Forsh, it isn't exactly rocket science....

              • Lions won’t have fans present for Thanksgiving

                Posted by Mike Florio on November 16, 2020, 9:22 AM EST

                As the pandemic reaches unprecedented levels, some sports teams are somehow welcoming more fans for games. The Lions will be going in the other direction.

                Via Chris Thomas of the Detroit Free Press, an emergency order issued Sunday by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer prevents the Lions from having fans present on Thanksgiving, when the Lions host the Texans.

                “No attendance will mean no attendance,” Michigan Department of Health & Human Services director Robert Gordon said Sunday at a press conference.

                The Lions had been permitted to have 500 family members and friends attend the last two home games, including Sunday’s 30-27 win over Washington.

                The pandemic, if you haven’t noticed, has spiked dramatically in recent days, with record infections, hospitalizations, and deaths on a daily basis. All indications are that it will continues to get worse through the end of the year and into 2021.

                            • The football world is being rocked by THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC THAT'S KILLING EVERYONE on Thanksgiving.

                              Nick Saban is dying.

                              Several Ravens are on their death bed, so the game needs to be postponed three days to allow them to plan funerals and mourn their dead. Several Steelers are being marched to the town square to be burned at the stake for Covid insensitivity. It seems they still wanted to play their big game on the national stage while everyone around them is dying. Sportscasters are on their soap boxes everywhere denouncing them for their selfishness during a HUNDRED YEAR PANDEMIC.

                              God (or Biden) save us all!
                              The only thing missing from that Marvin Jones touchdown reversal is that it wasn't a first round playoff game.
