Re: [Phys-L] covid modeling, LGBTQ risks

1. Has the rate for exposure/infection/death increased for the LGBTQ demographic? One might wonder, because:
2. They are already at greater risk, because of:
2a. higher smoking rates.
2b. already having a higher HIV infection rate.
2c. already tangling with syphilis, gonorrhea etc.
2d. having a larger incidence of compromised immune systems.
2d. poorer general health.
3. Might this not be an ideal time for persons already contemplating abandoning the LGBTQ lifestyle to set it aside and plunge headlong into an almost obsessive holistic pursuit of optimal health?
4. Search < gays’ protection from Corona Virus >

HOWEVER, the data on /deaths/ is more meaningful

"Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, an epidemiologist at UCLA, said the numbers of hospitalizations and deaths provide a more accurate indicator of the outbreak’s trajectory than the number of cases identified through uneven testing. On Thursday, the total number of deaths in L.A. County nearly doubled in a single day."

bc wonders how long it took for people to use this after the movie. (’38 Play, films 40; 44).

1960 14+ years: I finally viewed the ’40 version (KQED, San Francisco) last year.

Nostalgia: In. 1966 I (we) rented a flat in Newcastle under Lyme (More correctly: Basford) across the canal (long gone) from were the original Wedgwood works shipped their pottery. The sitting room still had a gaslight fixture. And the Newcastle corporation yard had a huge pile of street gaslights. I forever regret not getting one and shipping it home to Santa Barbara.
