    Dialect. Reading too much Cormac McCarthy maybe.

    Interesting essay about the bias against airborne transmission that seems to have infected science.

    "Miasma"

    Resonates ironically now.

    Reading his work with the knowledge we have now, it’s puzzling that it took so long for people to listen to him. Snow’s career would be defined by trying, but mostly failing to convince others to change their minds about miasma and cholera.

    We have observed the many parallels between the cholera and covid pandemics, and we observe another here.


    Before cholera we thought that some corruption of the air itself spread disease. Obviously, the miasmatists were wrong. There is in fact no such thing as miasma. It was germs…like Chapin said, passed from one person to another all along. And while these germs can spread in a variety of ways - most diseases are probably multi-modal - it’s clear that the medical literature developed a blind spot to the extent of airborne transmission.


    And now we are learning that other diseases we have thought to be spread via “droplets” and fomites almost certainly spread primarily via aerosols. Indeed a recent paper in Science says “there is robust evidence supporting the airborne transmission of many respiratory viruses, including severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV), Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)–CoV, influenza virus, human rhinovirus, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).”


    Given the history of airborne spread that public health officials know well, it seems as though the notion of airborne spread has been characterized negatively because it had already been discarded. As we emerged from the era of folk science, “society neglected and forgot aerial health practices when germ theory promised better disease control,” writes Dr. Melanie Kiechle, a historian at Virginia Tech.


    The literature is right about contact with germs, but thanks to the urgency of this pandemic we have come to understand that germs themselves can travel readily through the air in ways we thought they generally didn’t. This is a really big deal.

    It's annoying as out here because that really sore throat is a symptom of cedar pollen allergies too. So like half of San Antonio is asking COVID or cedar pollen right now because the pollen is through the ing roof (and it's the only pollen that bothers me). My throat feels like I have been gargling razor blades, but I don't think it's COVID because I got negative PCR tests two weeks in a row after a few close contacts tested positive.

    I did PCR because they're supposed to be way more likely to pick up asymptomatic infections and I haven't gotten this sore throat until the last couple of days. My last PCR test was 10 days after hanging out with people who turned up COVID+ so that should cover incubation time I think.

    This omicron is fast as tbqh

    Forget 10 days or a week. You start getting symptoms 2 or 3 days after infection.

    NJ's largest hospital system is gearing up for crisis standards of care

    "If you look at what the (health) commissioner and governor are positing relative to their COVID models, sometime in the middle of January we’re likely to see the same level of hospitalization we were seeing back in March, April of 2020," Dr. Daniel Varga, the chief physician executive of Hackensack Meridian Health, told News 4.

    HMH has 17 hospitals statewide and thousands of beds, but as more patients come in -- and more staffers get sick too -- the pressure on the system will rise. Crisis planning is underway at the hospital system, as healthcare providers are now preparing to strike elective surgeries as early as mid-January, according to state modeling that Varga has seen.

    "We’re already teeing up our process for how we will manage when we have to go to crisis standards of care, because I just think it's going to get there," Varga said.

    Did you get a bigger abacus?

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new estimates on coronavirus cases Wednesday (December 29), which predict more than 44,000 Americans could die from the virus during the next month.
