The USA has a far greater testing rate/numbers than European countries therefore the case count is much greater. Most people testing positive have mild or no symptoms and require no hospitalization at all. I am 75 with mild heart disease and overweight but not obese I think this covid disease has and is being blown all out of proportion IMHO for politics. Doctors who treat covid patients receive $2000.00 more per patient than flu patients. That is incentive for over counting and I have known a few unethical doctors at VA and in private practice past 50 years. Like others with common sense I always wear a mask when around other persons and practice good hygiene.

Once again, this forum is sorely missing a "Like" button. [emoticon]


I don't see anyone "riled up" A bit puzzled, maybe, but not riled up. Just because it's not breaking any rules doesn't make it right. And it just doesn't make sense to be able to fly in but not drive in.


I agree, not a thing to like about that post. A lot of rules don't make sense

No it isn't. It just seems that conspiracies are popular these days.

Most of this post has been proven false, but is constantly broadcast by somebody that was recorded, in his own words telling a well trusted journalist "Yes, I downplayed the virus. I still downplay the virus. I don't want people to panic"

"Blown out of proportion"? But you still wear a mask?

Europe has very strict lockdown restrictions for months and their China virus infections continue to rise to all time highs.


Calling it the "China virus" is incorrect. For example, the "Spanish flu" of 1910, actually originated in USA.

Call it Covid 19.

USA is #19 as far as tests per million souls. There are six European countries with more testing per million.

As far as being blown out of proportion there are now 248,713 folks who have died in USA. That's nearly twice as many as India, which has about five times the population of USA.

There are easily twice as many active cases in USA than in any country in the world.

Wearing a mask as a precaution is only a minor nuisance for me and I think it prevents the spread of flu and other virus as well as covid. I have no problem with a national mask mandate and I do consider covid a serious health threat but not justification for destroying the USA economy or children's education. There appears to be different mutants of the virus such as in minks. And this Covid did originate in China (even the news media admit this) and not USA just as Ebola started in African interior and named after one of their rivers or regions so China virus is china virus to me. Thanks for your replies and support. Happy Camping all.

It's funny that there's disagreement over whether people in this thread have been "riled" or not. Based on all the deleted posts, I think "riled" is accurate.

The discussion about transporting rigs from Canada seems to have spent all its fuel. I'm calling this one done.
