J. Harris: One out of every 100 Americans is infected.
SUGGESTED BY HOPKINS:
“…An illustrative example of the devastating potential for health care transmission of SARS-CoV-2 came from St Augustine’s Hospital in Durban, South Africa, a facility with 469 beds, including 18 wards, 6 intensive care units, and 735 clinical staff.2 Through a detailed epidemiologic study supplemented by phylogenetic analyses, investigators documented how a single unsuspected case of SARS-CoV-2 led to 6 major clusters involving 5 hospital wards and an outside nursing home and dialysis unit, with infection ultimately confirmed among 80 staff members and 39 patients, 15 of whom died.
(J. Harris: Yeah, you read it right. Lack of Covid immunity by everyone makes every single case of Covid important! This one person transmitted disease to 119 others, 15 of whom died. I don’t know if the first patient died; I don’t want to know. Please be careful.
2. Belgian Nursing Homes Failed Patients Amid Pandemic (AP) Belgian authorities “abandoned” thousands of elderly people who died in nursing homes during the coronavirus pandemic and did not seek hospital treatment for many who were infected, violating their human rights, Amnesty International said in an investigation published Monday. During the first wave of the pandemic last spring, the European nation of 11.5 million people recorded a majority of its COVID-19-related deaths in nursing homes. Between March and October, Amnesty International said “a staggering” 61.3% of all COVID-19 deaths in Belgium took place in nursing homes. The group said authorities weren’t quick enough in implementing measures to protect nursing home residents and staff during this period, failing to protect their human rights.
Immunity to the Coronavirus May Last Years, New Data Hint (J. Harris: A good read, maybe good news.)
They’ve Been Following the Science’: How the Covid-19 Pandemic Has Been Curtailed in Cherokee Nation (STAT) With a mask mandate in place since spring, free drive-through testing, hospitals well-stocked with PPE, and a small army of public health officers fully supported by their chief, the Cherokee Nation has been able to curtail its Covid-19 case and death rates even as those numbers surge in surrounding Oklahoma, where the White House coronavirus task force says spread is unyielding.
This was written by someone in California in response to their governor’s COVID orders:
“We’ve been told that only 6 people are allowed to meet for Thanksgiving, but 30 may gather for a funeral. With this in mind, I announce that we will be holding a funeral for our pet turkey, who will pass away on Nov. 26.
P.S. In lieu of flowers please bring a side or dessert.
