MERRY CH    HAPPY NEW YEAR

YOU CAN CALL SUPER ONE ON 59 OR BROOKSHIRES IN HALLVILLE AND GET ON THE WAITING LIST FOR VACCINE FOR NEXT WEEK. 

WHERE DO I GET A COVID VACCINATION IN MARSHALL TEXAS

Looks like Super One on 59, Brookshires in Hallsville, and Christus Hospital in Marshall. I don’t know when. BUT WE ARE GETTING VACCINE!

BEST SITE IN TEXAS FOR TEXAS: GENERALLY UP TO DATE AND LOADED WITH INFORMATION. THIS IS WHERE I GET MOST OF MY NUMBERS.

(J. Harris: Non covid reference that might be more helpful on New Years Day than the usual. Of course, I have no personal knowledge about the subject of this article)

Only one covid-19 treatment is designed to keep people out of the hospital. Many overburdened hospitals are not offering it.

“The treatments must be given within 10 days of the onset of symptoms — a time when many patients are hunkering down at home, hoping to get better. Clinics and hospitals need to set up a special infusion space to keep contagious patients away from other people….Questions about the drugs’ effectiveness further complicate matters. The Infectious Diseases Society of America recommends against routine use of the drugs, citing a lack of evidence, and the National Institutes of Health says “insufficient data” exists to recommend for or against the medications. Clinical trials of the two antibody treatments continue….Demand was expected to surge when Trump made a laudatory video after receiving the Regeneron medication and promised to make the antibody treatments free to patients needing them.

As a doctor in the Covid-19 era, I’ve learned that judging patients’ decisions comes easier than it should

J. Harris: A think piece that is easy to read and contains some of the doctor-patient interactions regarding taking chances with Covid. By now, most health care workers have trouble believing that others can be so defiant and careless and dangerous. However, both sides are considered. Good Read. True Life. 

Dallas’ Parkland hospital is ‘completely full’ with COVID patients, top doctor says

J. Harris: Parkland has never been completely full in ICU before now. 

Bodies pile up, patient care falters as COVID-19 devastates L.A. County hospitals

“…No one would believe this is in the United States,… It’s just that it’s too overwhelming for everyone….Hospital morgues are so full that the National Guard is being called in to help county workers as corpses are moved into storage…County officials have been concerned about patients suffering from things such as strokes, heart attacks and seizures waiting in ambulances outside hospitals…The early intervention, in some of these cases if you don’t get it, may lead to worse outcomes,…” There have been patients passing away who were in their 20s and 30s,..”
