May 16, 2020 – Good news / Terrible news – We have no new positive cases to report today but we do have one new fatality. Our current totals are: 207 cases, 15 fatalities, 30 recoveries leaving 162 active cases.

Nearly 90 percent of the coronavirus deaths in Connecticut last week were nursing home patients

NURSING HOME CONSIDERATIONS IN TEXAS  Who supervises nursing homes in Texas and manages quality control, infection control, sanitation and the like? It’s not local.

TWO CHARTS WITH DATA BY EDMUND WOOD. THE FIRST SHOWS THE CASE RATE  WHERE HARRISON COUNTY IS WELL REPRESENTED. THE SECOND CHART SHOWS THE DEATH RATE WHICH IS VERY HIGH FOR HARRISON COUNTY AT PRESENT, LARGELY DUE, I WOULD GUESS, TO NURSING HOME DEATHS. THE DEATH RATE WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY GO DOWN. I HOPE THE CASE RATE DOES AS WELL. Thank you, Edmund Wood for the information.
