Sturgis: SD gets all the benefit in revenue, while exporting health costs and death to other states

Gov. Kristi Noem is capturing the financial windfall of Sturgis for her state (and her presidential creds) while EXPORTING the medical, financial and death costs of this COVID super-spreading event to evey other state in the nation.

1. Wish I could rec a 100 times.

Perfect framing. SD is a breeding ground for covid. Come and spin the magazine. But your gamble costs where you end up. Send them back to Sturgis and let her deal with it.

2. Last year they did a thing with cell phone pings to show where all the attendees went after Sturgis.

They went home to states all over the nation and spread the virus with them wherever they traveled and back to where they lived.
It was the perfect storm of super spreader events.
This year will probably be worse.

5. Texas too. Padre Island. Northern College Students.

Seems like other states could sue for damages.

8. Many will get very sick while they are still there.

Iirc, much shorter incubation time and symptoms develop more rapidly.

Also, all the people who in that area will get it, too. And they are vaxxed either.

9. that would make for an interesting lawsuit against SD

if another state successfully contact traced a sturgis attendee as the source of a local outbreak.

11. Interesting. Didn't think of that.

But yeah, the tourists will go back to their home states. As will many of the transit workers. Watched a Doc on the event, a lot of temp employee's come up for the windfall in tips. Some take time off from there current bar job, etc....and to go back to it.

12. Sturgis is a Public Health Opportunity

Sturgis is a public health opportunity. Someone should set up a tent with a vaccination team!
