Germany got twice as many cases between Oct 1st and Nov 1st than it had in the period between May 1st and Oct 1st. That's just pathetic. And all while peddling that bullshit about "Oh but now we're so much better equipped to handle it and less people will die because of it." Yeah, those record numbers of dead people would disagree if they weren't killed by corrupt and apathetic losers.

Turns out massively inflated numbers of cases also means inflated number of deaths, go figure, asshole.

What really pisses me off is that we had time over summer to prepare. But going into the second wave it looks like no real considerations and preparations were done. It is up to the local health authorities mostly. And they are massively understaffed for this crisis.

Currently we don't have enough materials for testing, so criteria for who gets tested is tightened. Which doesn't help to find chains of infections.

EDIT: We germans don't need Trump to fuck up stuff for us.

We shouldn't compare ourselves to the US. At least we don't kill people on purpose. I still have some kind of Trust that at some point someone will put their foot down. Elections are coming up next year.

What, you Germs don't believe in survival of the fittest?  That's your loss.

Arthritis drug Tocilizumab shows promise in tests against COVID-19: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-55002339

Another arthritis drug, baricitinib, is approved by the FDA for emergency use in COVID patients: https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/coronavirus-covid-19-update-fda-authorizes-drug-combination-treatment-covid-19



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

We did once and then the US and Russia stepped in to stop it. Now they're the ones doing it themselves.
