    China cancels US departures, Brandon vows to retaliate.

    why does it have to be "retaliatory"? Seems like every country needs to do what they think is best.

    While our Crisis Standards of Care plan is activated, if you need our help, your experience may differ from your previous experiences.

    Some examples of how things could be different:


    • You may be contacted to reschedule an appointment
    • There could be fewer outpatient clinic appointments available
    • Your surgery might be postponed
    • If you are involved in an ongoing clinical trial, it may be paused 
    • Medical students and other staff may be used as support personnel 
    • We may need to deny patient transfers  
    • Non-patient care areas like classrooms or conference rooms may be used for patient care 
    • Scarce resources may need to be allocated in a fair and impartial manner

    You keep putting "milder" in quotes. Its objectively less pathogenic.

    On cue, the Republican governor plays D for COVID by opposing masks.

    Nebraska AG sues to stop Omaha mask mandate enforcement

    So far, perhaps. The medium to long term effect on organs and the vascular system isn't well known yet.

    Omicron is objectively more transmissible than previous variants, one thing that means is a greater absolute number of people in the hospital. Deaths are a lagging indicator, but it can't be ruled out that gross deaths will be higher than last year's es.

    The effect at the population level -- right now -- is anything but mild. COVID is closing schools and businesses. It's also wrecking our health care system. Has been for nearly two years no, tbh.

    More stupidity from the CDC.

    There's no shortage of N95s, sending masks to people in the mail is still a great idea. It's a ing airborne pandemic.

    What's your take on the sudden rash of health care triage? Or do you just care about the spin?

    Huh, I hadn't heard of that.

    "Do you know right now, I have something that [you can bring] into a building, that will clean you of COVID, as you walk through this, this dry mist?” Walker asks.

    Beck, processing this information, squints. Walker interprets this as an invitation to proceed.

    “As you walk through the door, it will kill any COVID on your body,” he continues. He leans in and adds, “EPA-, FDA-approved.”

    There were still large amounts of delta well into December, so hospitals were probably already stressed before omicron became dominant. Every omicron case, even if incidental, taxes the hospitals' resources because of protocols.

    Not a bad nuts .

    COVID has been stressing hospitals for nearly two years. Omicron isn't helping, in fact it's tipping us into systemwide triage protocols.

    That's cool with you, Darrin?

    It is what it is. Probably will be bad, but short-lived.

    Omicron will be done with us in 3 weeks. 4 weeks tops.
