  • They closed a local school here today because of a COVID outbreak. Forty percent of the students were out sick. My very slowly increasing positivity has made a bit of a u-turn.

      On the bright side, the postivity rate in MA remains hovering between 1.55-1.6%, which is good. And hospitalizations continue to go down (228 as of yesterday). In MA, raw infection numbers are much less meaninful now.

      • Right but I think we need to start thinking about this locally. The US as a whole is at the bottom of the curve. Near summer 2021 lows (<30k cases a day). We know that omicron has a CFR one third that of the flu for vaccinated individuals.

        We have free tests available by mail. You can't keep hundreds of testing sites open if no one is going to use them. Have a plan to rapidly mobilize the testing centers again if necessary. Then begin shutting them down as the numbers decrease. If they spike, then get the centers open again.

        But everyone should have a small stockpile of tests and N95s now. Soon we'll have plenty of the Pfizer drug that cuts severe COVID by even more.

        • I've got a 50 pack of KN95 masks coming within the next couple days. Uber Eats mandates masks for delivery drivers. My job mandates masks and will send N95 if a resident tests positive.

          I've been going out, but keeping to the "bubble" and only hanging out with those I can trust to tell me if they're sick.
          ​​​​​​
          I've got my free tests coming soon.

          • BTW. According to Yale Med, CT is running about 50-60% of cases as BA.2, doubling about weekly, and likely to push BA.1 out entirely by April. MA hasn't released sequencing recently (not since mid-February's wastewater data). Considering our proximity I'd bet the house that we're about the same w/r/t BA.2 percentage.

            So I'd guess a likely increase in cases locally here over the next couple of weeks but not a substantial one. BA.1 seems to offer substantial immunity to BA.2, which is terrific.

              • I'm listening in on a sort of open town hall with some hospital leadership and a wide cross section of the hospital (doctors, OT, IT Folks, social workers, practice managers...) and we've been discussing the previous two years of the pandemic. And my goodness, hearing the stories from the hospitalists (staff doctors). The hours they worked and the grinding nature of the work itself... it's crazy. You read about how proning a patient would lead to much improved outcomes. But proning a patient that's on a ventilator and hooked up to the necessary takes 4-5 people (and that's for a person of average weight, let alone a large person) and takes a long time. And that's just one thing.

                A hearty "go fuck yourself" to every covidiot.

                  ANd isn't proning something that has to be done and undone repeatedly? I thought I remember reading early on that you could only be proned for so long before you had to be returned to your back.

                    80% of Covid hosptilizations are overweight/obese.

                    60% of the country is overweight/obese.

                      I don't know the specifics, but yes, my understanding is that a person does need to be rotated.

                          • White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tests positive for covid-19 for the second time in five months. She is vaccinated and boosted.

                            Hilary Clinton, triple jabbed, has Covid as well. Also, needs a 4th shot.
