    Am just thankful I got into distance learning just before the COVID nightmare began(as in, I finished my training a year ago Christmas)

I would trust the folks on here 100%, but I would never get info from Inside Carolina.
    Isn't there one of those disclaimers over at IC, you know, "for entertainment purposes only?"

    Covid death undercount

    Interesting article on how the deaths from Covid-19 are undercounted and in which jurisdictions this tends to happen: https://www.statnews.com/2021/01/25/...nalysis-shows/

    I'm pretty sure IC should be put in quarantine. We don't want anyone catching or spreading that Carolina Fever.

    I donít have a clue, never visited the site. Life is too short to waste time with their ilk.

    I used to just to see the ridiculousness of it all (kind of like visiting Fox 'News') but I stopped. It's toxic. Just about every thread contains or devolves into hate for all things Duke. Plus they attack their own mercilessly (and then if you criticize them at all on any other forum they will defend to the death). Stick to your guns, you'll be happy you did. Now tell me which stock to buy next!!! :-).

    Internet chat forums (DBR excluded) tell us that there are a lot more people walking around with irrational and deep-seated hate in their hearts about something than what we might otherwise assume based on their public behavior. That's sad and scary. Older I get, the more social distancing seems like a reasonable permanent MO than a temporary measure to blunt the spread.

    Interesting comments/thoughts from Nate Silver.

    * Cases are probably declining faster than at any point in the pandemic
    *We're now vaccinating more people (1st doses) than there are new infections.
    * However, caseloads are still VERY high (higher than at any point pre-November).

    Just follow @ICMeltdown -- it's an Irishman in the Triangle who follows IC and culls the prime posts after a loss. A lot better than actually reading IC.

    My bad. I should have included some of these () in my comment about "entertainment purposes." Parodying a self-parody like IC is tough.

    Long, fascinating article about COVID and myocarditis:

    https://www.jacc.org/doi/10.1016/j.jacc.2020.11.031

    What really struck me was the low incidence of 4.5% in the autopsy cases, especially since we discussed here many months ago the 78% of COVID cases that were believed to have cardiac involvement (from my memory, either in Lancet or the British Heart Journal):

    (in the conclusion section) "...A thorough review of the literature describing both EMB and autopsy sample analysis suggests that myocarditis is an uncommon diagnosis occurring in 4.5% of highly selected cases undergoing autopsy or EMB. Given the referral bias of autopsy studies, it is likely the number of COVID-19 cases complicated by myocarditis is even lower, because the majority of cases do not have evidence of myocardial injury and do not result in death. However, it should also be appreciated that myocardial inflammation involving infiltration by macrophages and T cells can also be seen in noninfectious deaths (control) and COVID-19 cases, but the extent of each is different, and in neither case do such findings represent clinically relevant myocarditis...

    Yep. We are still a ways from being in a good place. But vaccination is rapidly improving and cases are declining. The hope is that as vaccinations keep going (up to 23.5 million doses as of today, with 19.9 million having gotten at least one dose), that incidence curve should continue to drop.

    I do hope we get to the 150+ million vaccinated by mid-April that Biden is now suggesting. That would be a huge impact on the case toll and death toll.

    Getting the approx 50 Million of our population that are aged over 65 will be huge.
