    You're all going to get infected.

    Good night.
    Is that what you and the other barflies are discussing tonight?

    Repug MISgovernance, it nevers fails to fail

    Texas just passed New York in COVID-19 deaths, despite once trailing by 29,000.
    Here's how.


    Texas has passed New York to become the state with the second-most COVID-19 deaths, a feat experts say was driven by an inability to control transmission of the virus here.

    “They enacted really strong, precautionary measures that overall are well based in the available science,” Fox said. “It seems that many of the Texas policies were put in place to try and prevent health care collapse rather than trying to prevent transmission.”

    By June 30 of last year, as the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic swept through the United States, New York tallied 31,775 virus deaths. Texas had just 2,481.

    Over next 13 months, however, the states reversed roles.

    New York kept restrictions and mask rules in place longer and consistently maintained a lower positivity rate than Texas.

    In contrast, Texas endured two surges of the virus and is in the early stages of a third, as the Delta variant now sweeps the country as a fourth wave of the virus.

    Hospitalization rates are well below the last wave and will remain that way unless we are being lied to about vaccine efficacy. It's disingenuous to use ICU bed availability as the metric for overwhelming hospitals. ICU beds are too expensive to be kept available when they are not needed. It's demonstrated in your graph.
    It's NBD to you, but Austin/Travis County considers it a serious problem to have only 13 open ICU beds for a 2.3 million person county, 50 COVID hospitalizations a day and 13.7% test positivity -- we hit stage 5 here yesterday.

    You might also be wrong about how quickly more ICU beds can be staffed up under the current pressure of COVID, RSV and Croup. There's a lot of burnout and a smaller cohort of workers to draw from.

    3,600+ US doctors and nurses have died from COVID since last March.

    Williams is one of many health-care workers rethinking their frontline careers in response to heightened pressure from the Covid-19 crisis.

    According to recent studies, between 20% and 30% of frontline U.S. health-care workers say they are now considering leaving the profession. Notably, one April 2021 study by health care jobs marketplace Vivian found that four in 10 (43%) nurses are considering leaving their role in 2021 — a figure that is higher among ICU workers (48%).

    we may have had a chance to get SARS-CoV-2 under control had we simply paid people to stay at home early enough on.

    Although some high-frequency contacts are driven by social gatherings, which are modifiable with education and enforcement, most high-risk exposures represent nonmodifiable risks due to living and working conditions (2, 3, 7). Therefore, risk factors that are nonmodifiable in the short term are likely to represent a much larger PAF than those modifiable by individual choices about social contact. Specifically, the onward transmission risks from someone who can work from home and has enough space for self-isolation, even if they are infected, may be minimal; but the PAF will be higher for someone with a large network associated with working and living conditions (see the figure).

    SnakeBoy: Texas health officials don't pooh-poohincasing hospitalization like you, are they overreacting and misleading too?

    Trend forecasters at the University of Texas at Austin's COVID-19 Modeling Consortium said Wednesday that most regions of the state could see a return within a couple of weeks to the capacity-busting hospitalization rate facilities were experiencing in January — the height of the pandemic — if people don’t resume masking up and social distancing.


    In Florida, hospitals are already seeing the numbers of COVID patients exceeding levels they saw during the worst of the pandemic, and consortium researchers told The Texas Tribune that Texas is not far behind.


    “We are absolutely on a path to hit a surge as large, if not bigger, than the previous surges right now” said Spencer Fox, associate director at the consortium. “If nothing is done, we’re on a crash course for a very large third wave.”

    'It just went boom':

    Florida ICUs swamped with younger COVID victims


    Florida hospitals are being overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients once again in frightening numbers as the Delta variant spreads rapidly among the unvaccinated in the state.

    DeSantis has resisted recommendations from health officials and refuses to mandate the wearing of masks --

    recently giving parents the option of not masking up their kids returning to school.

    the new flood of victims flooding in are even sicker than before -- and also younger.

    "It just went boom," before adding,

    "No matter how hard we work to discharge patients we know there are others coming."

    the critically-ill patients they are seeing are way younger -- and way sicker -- than they were during the first wave of COVID victims.

    we're now getting young people without pre-existing conditions

    "People come down with it within five days and they're really sick.

    They are coming to the hospital saying,

    'I don't feel good. I can't breathe'.

    That's when you're feeling, 'Oh, this is very different from what it was before.' "

    "It's very hard for us when someone's eyes are looking at you,

    staring at you, deadlocked, pleading and begging you, hugging you to help them breathe," she added.

    "That's the part that stays with us. It's really hard."

    MIS-governance, killing pandemic preparedeness, HCQ, ivermection, bleach, going to zero in warm April, just the flu = involuntary manslaughter and criminal reckless endangerment resulting deaths = homicide

    Trash and Repugs policies, MIS-governance are homicidal. eg, not expanding Medicaid causing 10Ks of deaths compared with states that did expand.

    You forgot the policy of putting covid+ patients in nursing homes.

    And there's nothing wrong with Ivermectin.

    Massachusetts, too

    Boston Globe email

    Younger and unvaccinated: The new face
    of COVID-19 hospitalizations in Massachusetts
    Doctors, nurses, and their army of colleagues in Massachusetts hospitals are worried and exhausted.

    The trickle of COVID-19 patients arriving at their doors a month ago has grown to a steadier stream —

    up 78 percent over the last three weeks.

    The faces of those infected are changing, too. No longer is the typical patient a gray-haired 70-year-old with multiple health conditions, they say.

    Instead,they are seeing many 40- and 50-year-olds, some even younger, who had been healthy before becoming infected.

    Many are people of color.

    And 80 percent of them arenot fully vaccinated.
