Orange County Florida is reporting that COVID is in the sewer. They have been wasting money on analyzing shit for months. I am just wondering what data they are getting that isn’t being obtained by simply looking at the number of positive results from individual testing.
There is a lot of reporting about how the CDC is advising against going on cruises. The reason for this, it is claimed, is putting so many people in such a small area increases the likelihood of infection. I say bullshit. Let the math speak for itself:
Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas has over 3 million square feet of deck space while carrying 8,300 passengers and crew. That works out to 361 square feet per person.
Disney’s Magic Kingdom is 4.7 million square feet in area, and has a capacity of 90,000 guests. This works out to 52 square feet per person. The CDC doesn’t have a problem with theme parks.
What about aircraft? Passengers on commercial aircraft are crammed in with less than 10 square feet per person. The CDC has little problem with flying.
Theme parks are roughly 7 times more crowded than a cruise ship, and no one has to prove vaccine status or have a negative COVID test in order to enter theme parks. Planes are even worse. The CDC is targeting cruise lines, but not airlines or theme parks. Like everything else COVID related, it isn’t about science or facts, it’s about control and political favors.
