Skip to comments.Covid: Thanksgiving the cause of a spike in US infections?
Posted on 12/22/2020 3:03:32 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
Concerns that family reunions over Christmas could spread coronavirus have led to much tighter restrictions in many parts of the UK.
Some have pointed to the US, claiming that family gatherings at Thanksgiving - at the end of November - led to an increase in cases.
So, what - if any - evidence is there for this?
What you can see from the graph is that because of reporting delays around the holiday period, there was a flattening of the curve followed by a catch-up period. But overall, cases rose by about 20% in the two weeks following Thanksgiving - about the same increase as over the two weeks prior to 26 November.
So the overall rate of growth of infections across the US has remained about the same as it was in the weeks before the holiday.

Just look at what they were able to accomplish with a pandemic, they were able to ruin traditional American holidays like thanks giving and Christmas, holidays of hope and renewal, the economy, small businesses, everyday life in America, your ability to earn a living, your self respect and dignity, your free speech and your ability to elect people who will represent you. China, the rats and the rhino GOP rats are responsible
I think it was the street celebrations for biden
Don't forget Fauci.
And we are going to ignore the sobees for Christmas too. There was no reason to panic over Thanksgiving.
Hector, lecture and moan all you want, more and more people are simply done with this.
Not if you’re in Wuhan. They’re doing just fine.
The sad part is the RINOS aren’t even aware what they are doing to this country. When they wake up, it will be to late. God Bless America!
I think it was all the dead people voting for Biden that spread the virus.
Hear hear, in CA I had a great 22 person thankgiving and expect to have a great 27 person Christmas dinner. We do not have to obey these creeps. The lockdowns and mask orders will not end until we realize this en masse.
yeah, it was Thanksgiving....not the open weed shops or the open unregulated indian casinos...not the howood crowd enjoying eating together because you know, their so important...
The majority of deaths in most countries can be attributed to causes that feature a distinct seasonal pattern. The figure depicts the relative monthly frequencies of nine selected causes of death in the United States for women and men combined for the years 1959–2014. The reported number of counts in parentheses in the title of each panel is the actual number of deaths.
Viruses gonna virus. Even non-viruses gonna non-virus.
The only thing that will cause an abatement is the vernal equinox, not a deepened loss of liberty.
“The sad part is the RINOS aren’t even aware what they are doing to this country. When they wake up, it will be to late. God Bless America!”
You are right. I think it might be already to late. Jan 6th will determine if I every vote again Republican again.
You’re on point they will never let go of this. We have to end this ourselves.
We really don’t know, but...
If the CCP is to be believed, almost all cases of COVID came to an end in late May. China “only” had 83K dead from COVID then, and now it at 86K dead.
Meanwhile, the USA—which had no cases when this disease first appeared, has had 330K dead as of today.
You know what? I’m going to have to just straight up say The Communist Party of China is lying... At an EPIC scale.
But not a single Western news source or big tech social media site is flagging this as misinformation.
I our area we peaked about Thanksgiving. we were warned of a post thanksgiving surge, instead hospitalizations have dropped dramatically proving once again masks and lockdowns have no effect on the spread of this virus.
