Also, there’s a huge distinction between dying with the virus and dying of the virus. 200k plus will end up being laughable IMO.
I'm not a doctor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once...I'm not sure I agree with the numbers of covid deaths, but if a person dies from another ailment but also has covid, would they still have died without having covid, or did covid attack their body/immune system causing death?
If a person gets AIDS, they don't necessarily die from AIDS, but complications brought on by AIDS...

What did Bartlesville and Claremore do wrong? The number of deaths in those 2 cities seem way out of proportion. Older population? Poor hospitals? Large number of nursing home deaths?

Some 70% of Stillwater cases have been 18-49 so that may explain the low death rate. All 4 deaths were over 65 years old.
Bartlesville had a nursing home that was hit hard.

Everyone who died of covid would have died anyway.

I wouldn’t compare this to AIDS. Covid deaths are coming from people already on death’s doorstep.

Stupid about AGW!!
Univ of Tulsa has set up service to deliver daily meals to students who are quarantined in dorms. Removes Fall Break from their Sched to encourage students to stay on campus and not travel back home before the end of the semester

Day 5 for my kids back to school. My sons math class is now down to 10 students out of 34. 1 kid in his math class tested positive on day 2 of school and they have now quarantined most of the class. My son was 1 row away from the "social distance" spacing from being quarantined.

Yesterday he had a substitute teacher in one class because the teacher is now quarantined after his 11 yr old son started showing signs of COVID. He son attends an elementary school here in town and they are now preparing to quarantine those students at the elementary that had class with his son and the high school classes he taught.....dependent on the Teachers family COVID test outcomes today
