In amongst all the Kremlinology, Covid horror has taken a back seat. But the news out of North Dakota is horrific.
They are going to allow asymptomatic covid positive staff to continue working.
In the first wave, Doctors could travel to hot spots to help: the whole US is becoming a hotspot, though.
The whole point of trying to control covid infection rates is to spar medical capacity: the North Dakota, they’ve failed, and that will mean higher than even though of excess deaths.
Given the States has passed 150K daily cases: which, given the lag between rising cases and deaths means a lot of deaths in about a months time. And the rate of infections is rising.November 13, 2020 at 11:35 pm #209396robbo203Participant

Just checked the worldometer site. There were 175,439 new cases in the US today (13th). Pretty alarming. By comparison China with between 3 and 4 times the population of the US had only 8 new cases though that could be a case of gross under-reporting. Still the difference is phenomenalNovember 14, 2020 at 10:37 am #209412Young Master SmeetParticipant
A quick bit of googling suggests that the rate of hospitalisation is 1 in 5 Covid cases, so that’s some huge numbers if that’s the case (of course, hospitalisation is not immediate, so, again, there’s lag behind confirmed case and hospital visit). 1.7 per 100K patients will require ICU, so 3 patients are being admitted in the states, every 2 days at current rates. From what I’ve seen following a blog over here, ICU beds do not come in big numbers (This blog is from the James Cook in Middlesbrough: https://www.nomoresurgeons.com/post/congratulations-and-vaccinations
Teesside has horrible Covid rates, there are 19 critical Covid cases, and 9 ventilated, out of 111 admissions).
Given an apparent fatality rate of 1%, that’s 1,500 people per day who are getting a death sentence. (plus knock ons from the collapse of the health care system).November 14, 2020 at 2:52 pm #209414
I don’t guide myself by statistic I guide myself by medical principles and this is a very serious disease and peoples are approving politicians instead of the medical sciencesNovember 19, 2020 at 2:20 am #209619
Covid 19 in the Native reservations of North DakotaNovember 19, 2020 at 3:43 am #209620
Elsewhere, it is having a devastating effect on the Navajo people. The Navajo Nation reinstated a stay-at-home lockdown for the entire reservation.November 19, 2020 at 11:45 pm #209643November 20, 2020 at 12:31 am #209644
It is perhaps a message even more poignant, MS, as we approach that day the invaders call “Thanksgiving.”November 20, 2020 at 1:15 am #209646
The celebration of a killing. Like the celebration of Mercedes day, the Spaniard were killing the Tainos and Saint Mary helped them to win the battle and they built a church in the same place that the massacre took place and the soil has been blessed, they have been selling sands for more than 400 yearsNovember 25, 2020 at 2:33 am #209932
MS, i thought you might be interested in this story from Canada and how anti-First People discrimination is deeply entrenched.
