    You just need to let your inner warmth and compassion shine through. Then you won't need to ask for a friend, you will have many.

    And then there's this, saying that current testing for Covid19 only has a 70% accuracy for negative tests. Which would mean that 30% of the people that are told they don't have Covid19, actually do. That's so high that it seriously undermines the value of the test at all.

    No way I am typing 'Pat Robertson oral sex' into my search engine. I have a feeling a guy could catch something rather nasty.

    So let me see if I have this right: If we sneeze or cough, we are supposed to do it into our elbow. If we meet someone, we aren't supposed to shake hands, we are supposed to bump.......elbows?

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    First thoughts might be that there is a higher prevalence of underlying conditions in this group, but it doesn't seem clear cut. Blacks have a higher prevalence of diabetes, but whites best them in terms of lung disease and cancer. Study findings highlight racial/ethnic differences among the leading causes of death but present a more complicated pattern than one of straightforward group disparities. We found greater racial/ethnic differences in prevalence of single chronic disorders than in multiple disorders emphasizing the importance of public health strategies to prevent the first disease. To prevent the complexity of multimorbidity, additional efforts might target people with a single disease. Non-Hispanic black and Hispanic adults had a high prevalence of diabetes, both alone and combined with CVD. Non-Hispanic whites had nearly twice the age-specific prevalence of cancer without other chronic conditions, and non-Hispanic whites had the highest prevalence of chronic lung disease, both as a single condition and combined with CVD. Across the racial/ethnic groups, disease dyads and triads may evolve through different pathways. The existence of distinct racial/ethnic patterns should be considered in the HHS framework to prevent and address multimorbidity.

    Yeah, women shouldn't be having babies at that age.

    I can't believe DSCDP just rejected the request to add Tim Brooks. Most of my requests get rejected, and I'm usually not overly surprised, but this one should have gone through.

    And I'm not really disagreeing with you, (which is why I was so shocked to see his name), but median survival is still just 3-6 months, which means that half the victims will die sooner and half later. Outliers will happen, and being a world class athlete might just make a difference there, or not. As always, time will tell.
