    President Biden to end COVID-19 emergencies on May 11
    https://nypost.com/2023/01/30/presid...ies-on-may-11/

    "Once the emergency expires, people with private insurance will have some out-of-pocket costs for vaccines, tests and treatment, while the uninsured will have to pay for those expenses in their entirety."

    No more freeloading
    So Joe is good now or was it a great happy hour?

    Your governor says it's still an emergency.

    We pass laws to prevent children from learning about Jim Crow and the second Reconstruction, but do very little to protect them from a ubiquitous airborne pathogen that causes vascular disease.

    Placed within this list, the rate of COVID-19 deaths in the study period exceeded the rate of influenza and pneumonia deaths in 2019 — reported at 0.6 deaths per 100,000 people — and fell just short of deaths caused by heart disease — 1.1 deaths per 100,000 people. That placed COVID-19 eighth out of the 10 ranked causes of death.

    If the team excluded deaths unrelated to disease, meaning those caused by unintentional injuries, assault or suicide, COVID-19 ranked fifth out of the remaining causes of death. (Unintentional injuries initially ranked second, at 9.1 deaths per 100,000 people, and assaults and suicides ranked fourth and fifth, respectively, at about 3.4 deaths per 100,000 people.)

    "Our study period, August 1, 2021, to July 31, 2022, coincides with substantial infection waves of the COVID-19 Delta and Omicron variants," the researchers noted in their report.

    Finally, the researchers looked at the 10 leading causes of death dating back to 2015. They found that the rankings had remained largely unchanged between 2015 and 2021, with the exception of COVID-19 making the list in 2021.

    "In this study, COVID-19 was a leading cause of death among individuals aged 0 to 19 years in the US," the study authors concluded. "Our findings underscore the public health relevance of COVID-19 to CYP [children and young people]."

    Ongoing until May 11th, then it's officially just another virus.

    Deaths per day becomes super important if your medical system is overloaded like happened in the US.
    Of course some people do not believe this ever happened. It was all good in the US especially during the 1st type of virus we got.
    Dont know what the case is in Sweden.

    Mammal to mammal transmission is worrisome. Close contact with infected birds has been the main vector so far. If people start getting H5N1 from other people it could get rugged.

    Long COVID is a drag on the economy.

    Long Covid is having a significant effect on America’s work force, preventing substantial numbers of people from going back to work while others continue needing medical care long after returning to their jobs, according to a new analysis of workers’ compensation claims in New York State.


    The study, published Tuesday by New York’s largest workers’ compensation insurer, found that during the first two years of the pandemic, about 71 percent of people the fund classified as experiencing long Covid either required continuing medical treatment or were unable to work for six months or more. More than a year after contracting the coronavirus, 18 percent of long Covid patients had still not returned to work, more than three-fourths of them younger than 60, the analysis found.

    “Long Covid has harmed the work force,” said the report, by the New York State Insurance Fund, a state agency financed by employer-paid premiums. The findings, it added, “highlight long Covid as an underappreciated yet important reason for the many unfilled jobs and declining labor participation rate in the economy, and they presage a possible reduction in productivity as employers feel the strains of an increasingly sick work force.”

    The report, which analyzed Covid-related claims from patients exposed to the virus at work, filed between Jan. 1, 2020, and March 31, 2022, and paid by the agency, provides a snapshot of the problem. The agency, one of the 10 largest workers’ compensation insurers in the country, found that nearly a third of 3,139 Covid-related claims it paid met its definition of long Covid.


    Patients received coverage from the fund if they had a positive coronavirus test and the agency or a workers’ compensation board determined that they had a high risk of having been exposed to the virus while at work, typically in environments like hospitals, grocery stores or transit systems. The report classified a case as long Covid if, after infection, a patient required medical treatment for 60 days or more or lost 60 or more days of work.

    wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is
