Blue states better start setting up armed checkpoints to stop the Trump Virus from spreading to their states.https://www.axios.com/sturgis-motorcycle-rally-coronavirus-covid-spread-minnesota-cfa30673-c745-464d-a45f-9d7634d1746f.htmlA motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota attended by approximately 460,000 in August resulted in at least 86 cases of COVID-19 in neighboring Minnesota, including four hospitalizations and one death, according to a report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday.Why it matters: The CDC said its findings illustrate how large gatherings in one area can have an impact on surrounding areas, and highlight the importance of wearing face masks and social distancing. The report found that of the 86 cases, 51 were in people who attended the rally and the other 35 people came in contact with event attendees.What they're saying: "The motorcycle rally was held in a neighboring state that did not have policies regarding event size and mask use, underscoring the implications of policies within and across jurisdictions," the report said. "[T]hese findings highlight the importance of reducing the number of attendees at gatherings and emphasizing mask use, physical distancing, isolation for patients with COVID-19, and quarantine for close contacts as strategies for reducing the spread of COVID-19." "[T]hese findings demonstrate the rationale for consistent mitigation measures across states."Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, a Democrat, criticized South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem for refusing to take more aggressive steps to slow the spread on the virus in the state, the Washington Post reports. Walz said the Sturgis rally was "absolutely unnecessary," adding that Noem should have canceled the annual event and imposed a statewide mask mandate.

That reimu on motorcycle pic is cute!!
>>734186Remember Reimu hates Trump and fascism, and also wears a mask.
>including four hospitalizations and one deathImagine dying or causing the death of someone you know just because you really wanted to drink beer in a shit town while wearing leather chaps and watching Smashmouth
>>734053>including four hospitalizations and one deathI feel like if you gather up any random batch of 460,000 people, after 2 months you're going to have a few people wind up in the hospital or dead for various, completely separate reasons. If this is supposed to sound like an overtly shocking thing, it really just doesn't.Also, what was the average age of the hospitalizations and the age of the one death?
>>734196That was just for Minnesota, because of the lack of track and trace in place at the event it's impossible to tell for sure, but I think at least 2 or 300 cases have been tracked back to Sturgis. No telling how many people outside that have been affected.
>>734195Imagine that they don't care.
>>734216Trump avoided supporting tracing because he knew the death count tied to his “rallies” would sink him politically.
>>734241We learned his rallies killed at least 700 directly and people didn't care.
>>734241>>735164Remember when contact tracers were deliberately told to not gather information on whether or not people went to BLM protests, so we can never get a clear picture of how many infections/deaths those protests caused, on purpose?Pepperidge farm remembers
>>735200>WhataboutismRemember BLM protests were a huge source of the Trump Virus?Oh wait, they weren't.
>>735209>>WhataboutismNo. Words have meanings. >Remember BLM protests were a huge source of the Trump Virus?>Oh wait, they weren't.How can you say for sure when contact tracers were, again, told to avoid collecting data on BLM protests?Oh wait, you can't.
>>735214Yes, it's a whataboutism.Also there wasn't a spike in the cities protests took place in.So keep coping.
>>735220>Yes, it's a whataboutism.No, it's not.>Also there wasn't a spike in the cities protests took place in.There absolutely was. But again, how can you say anything for sure when contact tracers were told to avoid collecting data on BLM protests?You can't :)
>>735231>There absolutely was.Nope
>>735232Well if you say so, butthurt anon on 4chan
>>735233>ad hominemNot a good look for you.
