You are looking at this from a partisan political lens. The death toll is higher than reported because of the people dying at home and those deaths are not recorded.

Now, look at data from across the world. Too many countries mirror our own experience in regards to SARS Co-V-2 for there to be overreporting in the USA.

You said all the news is fake but then completely and utterly misquote Dr. Birx. She never stated that the CDC count is off.

Dr. Birx has stated that she doesn't like the way the CDC has delayed reporting.

The WH is pushing the CDC to change the way SARS-Co-V-2 deaths are counted because Trump wants the numbers lower. Why? Answer that for yourself.

Trump, today, announced that he was taking Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to prevent him from getting sick. HCQ is the drug he pushed for weeks at the beginning of this and the drug was found to not be effective but now he is pushing it again. Is he really taking it? Of course not. Trump wants you out there like a good little soldier thinking that HCQ and Remdesivier will save you in the interim while a miracle vaccine is around the corner. Oh, AND that the virus isn't as bad as it really is.

I am not one of those that will tell you to stay inside and be fearful. I went out and played paintball this weekend and took the steps to stay away from people. I used alcohol to sanitize my gun after having it refilled and I believe in proper precautions such as N95 masks and social distancing because this will be the norm for months to come. And it is effective when done right.

I will agree with you on the fake news. But it's the news that is coming from the WH that is fake.

I hardly believe that there is a global conspiracy to make you believe that the news about C19 is fake. This virus is everywhere and the death toll has been staggering even with mitigation protocols in place. Thankfully the curve is flattening and we can start getting back out there IF we practice mitigation techniques (masks, sanitation, social distancing, etc).

Sincerely,

A paintball playing microbiologist.
So why did so few die in China?

The paintball scene was already so grim in Yuma Arizona that honestly nothing feels like it has changed. There is still a small group of us that get out and play at an outlaw field (safely) every 2-3 weeks.

Because China makes **** up all the time. Look at Russia, highest infection rate, lowest death rate. I don't trust either country to tell the truth at all.

Either way china is lying, either about how long this has been out, or about the source itself.

I agree 100% with everything you said, but you’re only going to be met with responses like “fake news” and “where are you getting your numbers?”.

A. How many years has Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) been on the market? (hint 65)
B. Do we quarantine from AIDS, too?
C. You say that "I hardly believe that there is a global conspiracy" so there IS a small sliver of chance you believe it could be true?

A) An Archimedes screw has been around for 2000 years, should I assume that's a valid covid treatment as well? What is it about HCQ makes you think it's good for Covid?
B) I have to assume you see the obvious difference in how AIDS is transmitted vs Covid-19 so your point is... what? Quarantining for one virus without a cure but not another is a contradiction? I literally can't think / grasp the thread we're trying to pull here.
C) Sure dude, there's a chance a cabal of ultra rich, ultra bored folks from around the globe are working in tandem to secretly F with everyone... Maybe. I mean, I can't prove there isn't from my laptop so I have to give you that one!

Personally, I think this would-be group of illuminati is too busy propping up F1 and European soccer leagues to have time/interest to F with the masses.

Paintball fields in Illinois are starting to open back up with reduced player caps. Groups of ten players maximum and groups have to be thirty feet apart. I believe face coverings have to be worn.

Paintball fields in Western PA have been open for 3 weeks now.

Social distancing in staging areas exist with one player per table, unless in a party. It’s high attendance levels with 60 to 300 players at Urban Assault the last 3 weekends.

More players with Corona builds have been showing up.

Paintball is alive and well in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. Same field that hosts the Iron City Classic in 2019. Come out and play.

The only way you’re going to get your lives back is by ignoring the guilt-trip Karens. Anything you do, they’re just going to say “you just want people to die!” Do everything you would have anyways, go back to your lives and verbally abuse your local politicians if they refuse to open businesses. I mean REALLY get after them. They’re more agreeable when being yelled at by angry mobs.
Had to log in to the account for the first time in years to say this take aged like milk in the sun.

Hope ya don't kill your grandma.

My local field moved the safe zone into a sectioned off part of the parking lot near where the air shed is. One group per table and smaller game sizes then usual. So far it is working out better then pre covid at the field.

man, it's crazy up in here! some folks seem well reasoned and some are conspiracy nut-jobs. and i literally chortled to whoever said "i do my own research". that sounded exactly like those karen anti-vax/flat-earth/chem-trail/fake-moon-landing/holocaust-denier fb morons.


i'm on the side of "it's okay to be outside, but be safe about it". i read a study of folks in wuhan (chinese study, so grain-of-salt, but it seemed legit), that out of ~400 positive covid cases that could be traced, about 90% of the transmission came from them having prolonged exposure in an indoor space. so things like golf, paintball, outdoor activities, etc...have a SMALLER chance of spread, but the vast majority come from being inside with someone that has it.


so that means, yeah, paintball is safe-ish (1 in 10 chance), if no precautions are taken, and even better odds, as long as we're all smart and safe about it.


and who doesn't believe the ****ing cdc? this is what they do! who the **** are you going to believe, if you can't trust subject matter experts? your own partisan media? facebook? come on, man. be real. if you have a serious health question, do you go find a doctor with decades of experience? or some media outlet pushing an agenda? at some point, you need to believe the experts when they are telling you stuff they are an expert at, not some ****ing talking head. it's really willful ignorance, i get angry at.

Lofl, yeah man, like, when has your government ever lied to you? Lol
Some ppl are conspiracy nutjobs, some are anti conspiracy nutjobs, both equally ridiculous.
Def agree on paintball being safer than other activities. If u.v exposure and exercise lower the chances of infection, then outdoor paintball would be an ideal sport. No person to person contact either. Atleast until somebody else tries to throw theyre tank at me 🙂

ReplyNews Ups


Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
