Skip to comments.Sturgis Motorcycle Rally linked to 20% of US coronavirus cases in August: researchers

Nineteen percent of the 1.4 million new coronavirus cases in the U.S. between Aug. 2 and Sept. 2 can be traced back to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally held in South Dakota, according to researchers from San Diego State University's Center for Health Economics & Policy Studies.
That's more than 266,000 coronavirus cases attributed to the 10-day event, which more than 460,000 people attended despite fears it could become a so-called super-spreader event......
Researchers from the Center for Health Economics & Policy Studies also studied the spread of COVID-19 tied to Black Lives Matter protests throughout the U.S. and concluded the protests did not have as harmful an effect on public health as some feared.
"We conclude that predictions of population-level spikes in COVID-19 cases from Black Lives Matter protests were too narrowly conceived because of failure to account for non-participants' behavioral responses to large gatherings," the researchers wrote in a paper originally published in June.

They used the Glo_Bull warming algorithm:-)
This thing just smacks of politics and INCOMPETENCE.
Smells like BS.
If that is true, then the protests accounted for 100 zillion cases of the virus.
Dumb models probably
How many Sturgis attendees died, that is my question.
Release those numbers in a few weeks, that will tell us everything.
is believed to be
can be traced
BTW they used cell phone meta-data that they somehow got a hold of and ran it thru a computer model. Meaning it’s a BS guess and fake news.
Contact tracers were explicitly forbidden from asking if people had gone to George Floyd marches and memorials, riots/BLM protests etc.
Hundreds of thousands went and did it for months.
We are being played and that IS why there was a jump in June cases.
There go Kristi Noem’s chances for 2024.
1, he was 67 and even the MSM admitted he had underlying conditions.
My outrage is with the reported “cases” in these stories. No one ever answers these questions....
How many tested positive? Testing positive is not exactly a case.
How many are currently ill, and how ill? (No one EVER tells us this!!!)
How many died, and what other complications were there?
These vague, panic-raising headlines are driving me nuts.
Anytime a large group gathers they’re going to make issue about covid.....it’s the new game the media loves to pile on.
I doubt it.
SD has been averaging a flat 1 COVID death per day since April 29th.
A political “study” masquerading as “science”.
The Rats are scared to death of the governor.
I call BS.
Cases are not deaths. Freak thee out not. Cases that do not result in death are okay; they have now got immunity.
