OH THE HORROR! Sturgis Motorcycle Rally COVID-19 Numbers Are in and They Are Shocking [UPDATED]

By Stacey Lennox Sep 01, 2020

EXCERPTS:

The 80th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally took place from August 7-16 in South Dakota. Attendance at the rally was slightly down, at 462,000, a 7.5% decrease from 2019. No doubt COVID-19 fears played a part in the attendance reduction. Perhaps those with pre-existing health conditions declined to attend.

COVID-19 panic certainly preceded the rally. Indeed, it was predicted that it would be a mass superspreader event that would result in significant illness and death. Or not. The numbers are in for the City of Sturgis, and they are quite laughable. More people died from fatal crashes during the rally than from the virus.

The City of Sturgis conducted mass COVID testing for its citizens after welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors for the 80th annual Motorcycle Rally. Now, the city is announcing the results.

A total of 650 people took advantage of the free testing, with 26 people testing positive for COVID-19.

All of them were asymptomatic at the time of testing.

It is unlikely there will be new positive tests related to the rally. It would also be highly unusual for symptoms to appear at this stage. The city waited 12 days before publishing the results and the most common point for symptoms to appear is between days four and five after infection.

In total, it appears, as of August 28, 12 days after the rally, a total of 196 positive tests were linked to rally attendance:

Positive tests after August 28 would be challenging to tie to attendance at the rally given the updated CDC guidance. It’s rare for symptoms to appear after day 12. Though it can happen up to 14 days after infection, this is not the norm. Any positive tests with symptoms now are likely to be from local community spread after the person returned home.

Given all we know now, it is imperative to distinguish between positive tests and cases. This distinction matters because:

A new study shows that 90% of positive tests contain low levels of the virus incapable of causing illness or being transmitted.

Studies show a robust T-cell response in 40-80% of individuals based on previous exposure to other coronaviruses.

The CDC has said that in recovered patients, including those who test positive and are asymptomatic, the viral debris can be detected and produce a positive result for 90 days after recovery. They actually discourage retesting.

In asymptomatic individuals, scientists theorize the viral debris may be the casualty of an effective immune response, which happens all the time when healthy individuals encounter a virus the body recognizes elements of.

We should be more than thrilled with these numbers given it was a gathering of nearly a half a million people with little social distancing and a lot of close-contact extracurriculars. The City of Sturgis offered screening tests for asymptomatic people. If a PCR test can detect viral particles for up to 90 days, there is no guarantee that the individuals who tested positive were exposed at the rally, especially if they never developed symptoms.

The same holds for rally attendees. I can only find confirmation of three hospitalizations at this point in the reporting. Two of the patients have confirmed discharges indicating they will fully recover. Since they had symptoms and developed them within fourteen days of the rally, contracting the virus during their travels or attendance seems likely. By way of contrast, there were four fatal crashes at the Sturgis event that killed five people.

Even using the largest number of positive tests and granting they all 222 resulted from rally attendance, 0.048% of attendees and contacts tested positive for COVID-19. Some states have done contact-tracing on people who tested positive post-rally and included those individuals in their reporting.

You won’t see this reported in the media nationally. It is too much good news. If almost half a million people can gather for an event that spans 10 days with this outcome, it puts their COVID-19 panic porn to rest. The case for mail-in voting would die. We could conduct a safe and secure election as usual. People could go back to work and school without screening tests or masks. And college football would be a go nationwide.

I'm convinced there is a certain percentage of the population that LIKES living this way, and ENJOYS virtue signaling by wearing their masks everywhere they go, even while driving their own cars, and it probably gives them a since of SUPERIORITY casting judgement on others for not following these stupid rules.

Any body with a properly functioning brain KNOWS there is no need whatsoever for the vast majority of Americans to "shelter in place", "social distance" and wear a useless mask.

You may just be right Pat'....But the good news is that the increased intake of CO2 will naturally "Thin the herd"....or should I say "Flock?"

Yes, we were walking a school doing a safety survey, which is required every school year. A male Karen wanted to know why we weren't wearing our masks. He was in his classroom ALONE by himself on the other side of the room. We were in the hallway 6 of us alone spread out and he was like "where is your mask!!!". These moron's are clueless but compliant, and willing to impose their idiot brand of tyranny on the rest of us. Just like the Sharia patrols in Iran.

There are those who crave and always want more power and there are those who hate having it and there are those who it terrifies.  I always felt the ones it terrifies are those who understand it best and use it the most wisely.  Then, there are those who are simply sheep and never want to think or do for themselves.

Those of that population are democrats.

I am firmly convinced of this.  I was at a 4-way stop in my city just last week and a guy wearing a mask, with his dog, on the sidewalk waved at me and cupped his hand over his mask, indicating I should be wearing one IN MY OWN CAR.  The World Police loves to show how much better they are and don't mind trying order strangers around either.

These are the same clowns that demanded laws against smoking, beer at picnics and high school bonfires.  They have to poke their giant noses in everybody's business and make sure compliance rules the day.  The kind of pukes who put hectoring bumper stickers on their cars.

Too many people seem incapable of finding meaning in doing their everyday lives and jobs. They live vacuous, unfulfilled lives and are desperate to find something, anything, to give them a sense of superiority and worth. There was a Zen master who visited another master and after dinner he washed his rice bowl and didn't say anything. The other master said he should have said something, he said "didn't I wash my bowl?" In other words, doing the daily things that require doing, doing them well, is all the self fulfillment and comment you need. We have too many people who got participation trophies who seem to think they are special and just living their lives isn't enough. As for why they get in your face, see the quote from Hoffer in my sig below.

Yes, the Hoffer quote is a perfect summation.

Translation: because they allowed people to assemble without burning buildings, looting, and carrying BLM propaganda
