    Nearly 1 in 4 US teachers at greater risk of becoming seriously ill if infected with coronavirus

    Kaiser Family Foundation ... looked at a series of factors identified by the Centers of Disease Control which could indicate that a person could be “more likely than others to become severely ill,” when they are exposed to the virus.

    They include several underlying health conditions — such as

    diabetes,
    chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
    heart disease,
    moderate or severe asthma,
    having a body mass index of greater than 40, or
    having a compromised immune system due to, for example, treatment for cancer —
    as well as being age 65 and older.


    The analysis found that about 1.47 million teachers and instructors in the country — nearly 24% of the entire workforce — have a condition that will put them at higher risk of serious illness from coronavirus.

    means that “they may require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help them breathe, or they may even die.”

    MISgoverned USA not doing enough testing to control the pandemic.

    Testing is now rationed due to lack of test kits and/or lab capacity.

    btw, the The Trump Pandemic surge has surpassed the need for PPE, also being rationed, re-used, etc.

    deaths/day have increased in the last day or two,

    negating the decline achieved in the last couple weeks.

    about 600 deaths/day or about another 75K deaths by 3 Nov

    A Goddamn cult. But then I wonder how many are bots?

    https://www.technologyreview.com/202...eopen-america/

    Not that means they're not a cult and their members aren't legion, but the disinfo campaign (probably by Russia) is worrisome since it ropes in the cult further and further.

    'Extremely Regrettable': Okinawa Governor Rips US for Letting Covid-19 Infections Surge on American Military Bases

    "Infections are rapidly spreading among U.S. personnel when we Okinawans are doing our utmost to contain the infections."

    Okinawa Gov. Denny Tamaki slammed the U.S. military over the weekend for not taking sufficient action to prevent the spread of Covid-19 after

    dozens of Marines stationed on the Japanese island tested positive,

    threatening to spark a large outbreak in a community where the virus has otherwise been well-contained.

    Infectious Disease Expert Says Miami is the New Wuhan:

    ‘Now the Epicenter for the Virus’




    The state has now experienced an overall total of 282,435 confirmed cases, with 67,713 — or 24 percent — in Miami-Dade County.

    Of that figure, 4,277 residents have died, or about 1.5 percent of those who have contracted the virus.

    That figure falls well below a national average of more than 4 percent,

    though the gap may narrow as new cases of the virus resolve.

    Long delays in getting test results hobble coronavirus response

    Test results for the novel coronavirus are taking so long to come back that experts say the results across the United States are often proving useless in the campaign to control the deadly disease.

    Some testing sites are struggling to provide results in five to seven days.

    Others are taking even longer.

    Outbreaks across the Sun Belt have strained labs beyond capacity.

    That rising demand, in turn, has caused shortages of swabs, chemical reagents and equipment as far away as New York.


    making it impossible for the United States to replicate the central strategy used by other countries to effectively contain the virus — test, trace and isolate.

    “It makes contact tracing almost useless. By the time a person is getting results, they already have symptoms, their contacts may already have symptoms and have gone on to infect others.”

    because of a lack of federal coordination, supply shortages and surging demand as outbreaks in some states spiral out of control.

    “Instead of building that out,

    our federal response was to do the very least possible.

    So each time the system is stretched now, it breaks down all over again,”

    free tests are available at the federal, state and local level.

    As demand has surged, it has created backlogs and choke points at almost every step of the testing chain.

    “It’s not shortages of any one thing. It’s now spot shortages of all of them,”

    “Clinical labs need
    more swabs,
    chemical reagents,
    viral transport media,
    test kits,
    machines to process the tests,
    staffing to run the machines.”

    As bad as the testing lags seem now, experts warn, they will almost certainly worsen in the fall once flu season hits.

    “You’re going to see so many more symptomatic people,

    who won’t know if they have the flu or coronavirus and are going to need testing for both,”

    “We’re expecting a coming crush of tests, even more than we’re seeing now.”

    Where's the Defense Production Act for C19 testing?

    France's health workers given pay rises worth €8bn


    The French government has agreed to give pay rises worth €8bn (£7.2bn; $9bn) to health workers, as it hailed their role in fighting coronavirus.

    The deal was signed with trade unions on Monday after seven weeks of fraught negotiations.

    Health workers have been revered as heroes during the pandemic with regular displays of public appreciation.


    But they wanted more than recognition and have held protests to demand pay rises and better funding for hospitals.

    Now the government has reached an agreement on pay that will see the wages of health workers rise by €183 a month on average.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-53398208#

    otoh, in USA, for-profit hospitals have laid off staff because the revenue procedures have been reduced.

    and Lady G says $600 too high because it's more than nurses make

    .

    Yeah, he doesn't understand the reason he's isn't seen a capacity overflow on the state dashboards and such is because many hospitals in these hotspots are diverting patients in an attempt to stay under capacity. And many of them might be diverted to nursing homes if that is the only option.
