    More than 83,000 COVID-19 cases were confirmed Friday, which beat the previous daily record set during the summer surge.

    "If 95% of the country wore masks, by the end of February it could save about 130,000 lives."

    25 years ago was a flu year soooooooo bad. We didn't usually get it and docs never told us to get flu shots but it was dangerous for my asthma son. All of us got it but he and I had it much worse than the others. Docs gave my son codeine cough syrup but me nothing. My neighbor, a navy doc brought me a bottle of Grand Marnier. It was perfect and I've used it ever since. Straight up or in coffee. Perfect.

    Thanks, I shared the first article with our church choir director. :) We are rehearsing via Zoom, but we only hear ourselves and the choir director. We have masked and distanced recording sessions in a parking deck. We are not having indoor services at our church and I have no idea when we will be able to again. Sigh...

    My mum (70's) kept getting messages from a lifelong friend... Shall we meet for lunch in the local town.... In the end my mum messaged back "I'm sorry but we're not socialising with anyone at the moment until the situation settles down". She hasnt heard back, but isnt too worried, she was far more anxious about being exposed at a lunch she didnt want to go to.

    I remember that flu. I had it, it lasted literally for weeks. I was in a fugue state, functioning, barely, from when I got up, until I could crawl to my bed after giving the kids something for dinner.

    Never missed a flu shot since. I am in serious mortal fear of Covid. I am now, 25 years older. I won't be able to recover if this hits me like that flu did.

    Refresher

    There are 30 different conditions that can lower your vitamin D level

    Vitamin D and its ability to help the immune system fight off diseases like the coronavirus.

    "Former trauma surgeon Dr. L. Ray Matthews discusses research looking into the potential impact of vitamin D in the fight against the coronavirus."

    Vitamin D, is a hormone that increases white blood cell count. White blood cells fight off bacteria, viruses, and fungus.

    "When vitamin D levels are less than 18 NG/ML, that is the amount of vitamin D level in your blood. your risk of death goes up for all causes. There is coronavirus, regular pneumonia, flu, traumatic brain injuries, and gunshot victims."

    Can cannabis help treat COVID-19?

    "There is a drug that actually was approved by the FDA, to go into phase one clinical trials by the end of the year. It is a synthetic cannabinoid and it is being targeted to be studied in patients with that so-called cytokine-storm to reduce the inflammation."

    Thanks for sharing what you do. So if there is no need to cook the onion, that simplifies the recipe a bit... I believe if you don't have honey, you can cover the onion slices with regular sugar.

    Rum with honey and lemon sounds like a yummy remedy!

    That's the one. EVERYBODY had it. I'm going to try to look up that year. It ruined Christmas where we are. Pharmacies were overrun trying to fill scrips and we had to drop them off and come back hours later. We also have never missed a flu shot since. And this year, my pharmacist offered to check my vaccine status and recommended boosters for several. I'm terrified of COVID. I've never forgotten how incredibly bad it was for us, nor how long it took to get over it.

    I'm right there with you

    I don't attempt to educate strangers because I'm scared of their potential reaction after stories in the news

    I have made my opinions and decisions clear to friends and family

    I'm at a point where i no longer can come up with reasons why people would think it's a bother or restrictive to their personal freedom to protect others

    So i adjust decisions i make accordingly
    I felt guilty for some time, and like an old fuddy duddy, but not now

    I'm good with the exception of toddler aged great grandchildren
    They don't understand why i can't come over and play

    My views/experiences

    I feel like we are really heading into a crisis situation and our government is missing in action. Sorry to be in panic mode, but I would at least like to hear some kind of admission about what is happening in the U.S. Wishful thinking is nice and all, but at some point we have to face a serious reality. I hope I'm overstating things, but it does not feel good. MOO

    You are having an antigen test for virus (dead?) particles still? Whoa, it guess that there is a study still going on for remaining antigen particles. I had never known such investigations for 7 months.

    Interesting.

    All United House of Prayer buildings ordered closed over ‘grave’ COVID-19 concerns — The Charlotte Observer

    “All United House of Prayer for All People buildings in Mecklenburg County were ordered closed Saturday over “grave concerns” about the ongoing spread of COVID-19 linked to the church.

    Health Director Gibbie Harris said she ordered the buildings closed beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday after 121 confirmed cases of the virus and at least three deaths were linked to the church. A fourth death is under investigation, Harris said at a morning news conference.

    The “abatement of an imminent hazard” order announced Saturday will remain in effect until midnight Nov. 5. It appears to be the first time the county has used such an order from the health director to force compliance during the coronavirus pandemic.”

    “The church “failed or refused” to ensure social distancing and other COVID-19 preventive measures, it said.

    Church leaders won’t provide a list of attendees so health officials can conduct contact tracing and notify people that they may have been exposed, Harris said. Cases may have spread to five states, according to the order, which doesn’t name the states.”

    Sigh.

    These comments led me to do a little searching. I found an interesting article (NY Times) about a bad flu in late 1994 and early 1995 in the New York region.

    Flu Casts Fevered Misery Across New York Region (Published 1995)

    The flu and cold season has singled out New York with particular fury this year. While much of the country has remained unusually healthy this winter, many New Yorkers have coughed, sneezed and wheezed their way into the new year.

    Based on the surveillance system used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, as of Jan. 6 more than 60 percent of the nation's flu cases were in New York, with Connecticut, Kentucky, Maryland and Virginia also reporting significant numbers of flu cases.

    ...The article notes that most of the cases were caused by a strain of the influenza A virus that was new to the U.S., so people lacked immunity to it.

    A CDC report published in 2000 discusses the 1994-95, 1995-96, and 1996-67 flu seasons (BBM):

    Surveillance for Influenza --- United States, 1994--95, 1995--96, and 1996--97 Seasons
    Surveillance for Influenza --- United States, 1994--95, 1995--96, and 1996--97 Seasons

    Excerpt:
    The 1996--97 season was the most severe of the three seasons summarized in this report. Thirty-nine state epidemiologists reported regional or widespread activity at the peak of the season. ILI [influenza-like illness] reports exceeded baseline levels for 5 consecutive weeks, peaking at 7%. The proportion of respiratory specimens positive for influenza peaked at 34%, with influenza A(H3N2) viruses predominating. Influenza B viruses were identified throughout the United States, but only one influenza A(H1N1) virus isolate was reported overall. The proportion of deaths attributed to P&I [pneumonia & influenza] exceeded the epidemic threshold for 10 consecutive weeks, peaking at 9.1%.

    For what it's worth!
