    This post lands at random.

    The Covid19 forum was set up by Tricia for those who take this virus seriously and are concerned about its effects on them and their loved ones. If you aren't concerned about Covid then please don't post here with a view to downplaying or minimizing the threat and making others feel that their concerns are not warranted.

    If Covid does not concern you, this thread is not for you.


    IMPORTANT:

    We are receiving far too many complaints about posts that are minimizing the severity of Covid19 and its impact on human lives.

    Websleuths has chosen to place their trust in Dr. Fauci, the CDC, the scientific data and those with extensive pandemic knowledge and expertise. If you aren't prepared to accept their recommendations and advice, or if you have a cavalier attitude about the health consequences of this deadly virus on yourself or others, then please don't post in this forum.

    There are other "anything goes" forums on the internet that may be more to your liking as they do not have the same posting guidelines.

    Please continue to Report any posts that you feel are contrary to the forum specific policies Tricia has put in place, or posts that you feel are not in the spirit of this discussion.

    Thank you.

    Hey everyone,

    This thread is for sharing information, not debating or bickering or winning an argument.

    State your opinion, post your link to info, then move on without feeling the need to comment on every single detail of every single post. It takes over the thread and none of us are here to hammer our own opinion into the heads of other members.

    Thank you.

    Well, the world has now had over 1,000,000 confirmed covid deaths. :(



    The worldwide death toll from coronavirus has eclipsed one million, nine months into a crisis that has devastated the global economy, tested world leaders' resolve, pitted science against politics and forced multitudes to change the way they live, learn and work.

    The bleak milestone, recorded by Johns Hopkins University, is greater than the population of Jerusalem or Austin, Texas. It is two-and-a-half times the sea of humanity that was at Woodstock in 1969.

    It is more than four times the number killed in the 2004 earthquake and tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

    Even then, the figure is almost certainly a vast undercount because of inadequate or inconsistent testing and reporting and suspected concealment by some countries.

    And the number continues to mount. Nearly 5000 deaths are reported each day on average.

    Parts of Europe are getting hit by a second wave, and experts fear the same fate may await the US, which accounts for about 205,000 deaths, or 1 out of 5 worldwide.

    Speaking about the second wave:

    “We should have been ready by now. We had a lot of time. And history has proven there is zero guesswork here. We’ve seen it in the 1918 pandemic, that the cities that lifted restrictions too early had a higher second wave; that you’re better off holding off for as long as you can, being more strict, and controlling the second wave as opposed to having uncontrolled numbers. And again, it’s going to be the most vulnerable populations that are affected, and if all we’re doing is trying to tread water, of course those people will be left behind.”

    The alarm bells are blaring over COVID-19. Why isn’t the province listening?

    A reminder from WHO to keep your immune system healthy .... Vitamins D, C, and zinc.


    Micronutrients, such as vitamins D and C and zinc, are critical for a well-functioning immune system and play a vital role in promoting health and nutritional well-being.
    There is currently no guidance on the use of micronutrient supplements as a treatment of COVID-19.

    A US friend said to me a couple of days ago "there are rumours that the border between the US and Canada are going to open". (Meaning between NYS and Ontario.)
    He has a mate whose girlfriend lives in Canada.
    Umm ... probably not.

    IMO

    Awh tough times. It's got to be really difficult for cross border relationships, but I think it would be political suicide for Trudeau to open the border any time soon.

    Another 14 COVID-19 cases connected to cluster at Brigham and Women's
    more at link
    BOSTON —

    An additional 14 people connected to a COVID-19 cluster at Brigham and Women's Hospital have tested positive for the coronavirus.

    In an update released Monday, hospital officials say 30 of the 488 employees connected to the cluster who have been tested for COVID-19 have tested positive.


    The hospital says it also tested 581 patients across all inpatient areas and 12 have tested positive for the virus. The 12 patients who tested positive are connected to the cluster, which was identified by the hospital's infection control team last Tuesday.

    Brigham and Women's previously reported Friday that 19 employees and nine patients had tested positive for COVID-19.

    Doctors concerned about increase in COVID-19 cases in Mass.
    More
    WEYMOUTH, Mass. —

    The seven day weighted average of positive COVID-19 molecular test rate in Massachusetts is up slightly to 0.9% from 0.8%, but many in the state are questioning the accuracy of the metric.

    This comes as a relatively large number of new confirmed COVID-19 cases have been reported by the Department of Public Health in recent days. After reporting 244 new cases on Sept. 21 and 143 new cases the next day, the number of new cases skyrocketed over the next five days: 542, 455, 454, 515 and 594.


    The DPH reported 367 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, but doctors in Massachusetts are worried about the recent trend, especially as indoor dining rules have just been relaxedand more children are returning to the classroom for in-person learning.

    "Recently, we have been seeing an increased case number. Our percent positive has been higher: recently, it's over 2% whereas before it has been much lower," said Dr. Todd Ellerin, director of infectious diseases at South Shore Health.

    COVID-19 Deaths Top 1 Million Worldwide. How These 5 Nations Are Driving The Pandemic — NPR

    “The coronavirus pandemic has now killed at least 1 million people worldwide. That's according to a tally maintained by Johns Hopkins University. This sobering milestone was reached just nine months after the first reported fatality in China last January. And public health experts believe the actual toll – the recorded deaths plus the unrecorded deaths – is much higher. What's more, in the five worst-off countries, the trend line remains worrisome. Here's how they line up — and why Argentina could soon join their ranks.”

    It's all about perspective. Doctors in MA are worried because the percent positive is over 2%.

    FL is happy and opening wide because their percent positive is at 5%.

    It is disheartening and disturbing that a hospital with the good reputation of Brigham and Women's Hospital has this outbreak, and they don't really know the source as of yet.

    From Aug. 31:

    “Sweden’s government has been widely criticized for seeking herd immunity by allowing the virus to burn through the population. But Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organization’s Health Emergencies Program, said it was not true that Sweden has not implemented control measures.

    “It tried to rely on individuals and communities to comply with the advice of government and it has tried to avoid imposing mandatory lockdowns, mandatory separation of individuals,” Ryan said.
    This is based on historically very high levels of trust between the Swedish government and its people, Ryan said.

    “That is the way in which Swedish people, the Swedish government interact,” he said. “That is the social contract in Sweden.”

    He said that it is wrong to suggest that Sweden had an altogether different approach to Covid-19 than the rest of Europe....”

    It’s going to be a much different winter for seniors like Peggy Jewkes. Before 2020, she had only missed travelling once in the 23 years she’s been wintering in Florida.

    The 76-year-old lives in Truro, N.S., during the warmer months and in Largo, Florida, during the winter, where she starts each day with a walk along Indian Rocks Beach.

    But as tempting as it may be, Jewkes says she and her friends who fly south — affectionately known in Canada as snowbirds — remain determined to not risk travel, even if it means missing the warm Florida sunshine.

    “I’m going to miss it this year, terribly. But I don’t want to go because of COVID-19, and I don’t think it’s safe to go,” she says.

    Florida, of course. And, oh DeSantis, that last paragraph :(

    Party With More Than 1,000 People Near Florida State University Broken Up By Police Helicopter

    Police in Tallahassee, Florida, said they broke up a massive party over the weekend, involving a gathering of more than 1,000 people near Florida State University, where more than 1,400 students have already tested positive for coronavirus, just a few weeks into the fall semester.

    University president John Thrasher sent out a letter “issuing an urgent call to action” on Sept. 18, warning that “students who endanger the community with actions such as hosting or attending a large party or gathering will be subject to suspension.” “Moreover, from this point forward, for any student who tests positive and is ordered to isolate: Socializing outside of your residence, working out at the Leach Center or engaging in activities such as going to parties may result in your suspension from Florida State University for a minimum of one academic semester,” Thrasher said.

    The new penalties have not sat well with Gov. Ron DeSantis, who recently announced all capacity restrictions for bars and restaurants in Florida were being lifted. DeSantis said he may issue a college students’ “bill of rights,” which would prohibit universities from taking action against students who might attend parties. “I personally think it’s incredibly draconian that a student would get potentially expelled for going to a party,” DeSantis said. “That’s what college kids do.”
