The stroke didn't "just happen." He said it was caused by covid-19.

Possibly some inflammation or clotting factors played a role. IDK to what extent Covid played a role in it, but I do get what Bnk is saying medically. In most people, strokes take a while to manifest, and typically are a combined factor of pre-existing parameters. Bar some acute factors like a massive cocaine or meth overdose.

Covid could possibly accelerate some of these factors or make them worse, even i they are in an infant stage.

Attributing deaths to covid by assuming every person who dies with covid has died from covid is not helpful. I'm not saying this is what happened in this particular case but it should be a concern to anyone who cares about having accurate data.

What is the point of armchair quarterbacking this? Presumably a medical professional examined the situation and provided the family a cause of death. All of us are too far removed from the details to have anything of value to add.

I had no idea that people were having strokes related to covid. I suppose they may be testing since there seems to be a high correlation between strokes and covid and hospitals are seeing an alarming increase in strokes:

While this is technically true, there are (at least in the U.S.) probably far more people who are dying from COVID-19 but not included in the official case counts due to not being tested than there are people who have COVID-19 and happen to die of something else.

Corona Update for NYC/NY: As of 6-2-2020

He didn't really go much into it today, more on the protests/rioting.

The numbers will be going up very quickly in the next few weeks due to the civil unrest.

Some people being smart and wearing masks, but very little logical thinking in terms of protection during the protests.

I stand with the peaceful protestors, but it's also very concerning how this, at this point, is certainly spreading COVID like wildfire.

Good.

The lockdowns have prevented the virus from spreading through the population, as it needs to do, so that we can be done with this social distancing nonsense and have our lives back.

Covid-19 data yesterday:
Berlin total deaths: 197
Germany total deaths: 8.673

In Berlin schools are still closed and most large indoor events are canceled. Wearing face masks at public transport and supermarkets are mandatory.

Berlin Reopens Fitness Studios, Pubs, Gyms, Ballet Schools, Casinos

Meanwhile last weekend:
A Corona protest against restrictions in the Berlin nightlife got, ahem, a little out of hand.....

Corona-Demo in Berlin – a Protest ended as a Techno-Rave with 3000 celebrants

Sooo is it safe to say the people who thought this would die out when summer started were correct?

No. Daily new cases in the US are holding steady in the low 20,000's for quite a while now and show no signs of abating. Cases are dropping in the early hotspots, including the greater NYC area. Cases are increasing still in several states. Who says it's dying out?

No, it is safe to say that the social distancing measures helped. Just as a reminder that cases are increasing in Brazil, Indonesia, and parts or the Middle East and Africa. You know, where it is warm all the time.

And Mexico. Mexico recorded over 1,000 daily deaths yesterday for the first time.

Since my wife and I figured cases are likely to spike again next week, we took advantage of the outdoor seating at Flo and Santos for lunch today. We showed up right at opening and were the first ones there:

Hospitalization rates, number of ICU patients, and ventilator patients have not declined in Austin since the onset of warm weather, and reporting from the past week suggests hospitalization rates may actually be increasing. Positive test results (which are probably less meaningful) have been on a fairly steep increase as well.

Texas seems to be posting some of the worst COVID-19 numbers in the country at the moment. More than 1,000 cases per day six out of the last seven days, with a couple scraping close to 2,000.

Spike in cases in Arizona, where the temperature is well over 100F in the desert. Heat clearly isn't a factor in slowing it down

mhays Jun 4, 2020 9:20 PM

People live a lot of their lives at room temperature, particularly when they congregate. Add in people not wearing masks, and being in close proximity talking etc....
