« Reply #14 on: June 29, 2020, 05:07:50 PM »
Governor Lee signed a new executive order Monday extending the state of emergency in Tennessee to August 29 due to the pandemic. According to a release, the order “allows the continued suspension of various laws and regulations and other measures” to stop the spread of COVID-19.

  • Provide that bars may only serve customers seated at appropriately spaced tables and must follow the Economic Recovery Group Guidelines (e.g., Tennessee Pledge) for restaurants (the 6 counties with locally run county health departments have authority to issue different directives on businesses/venues);
  • Urge persons and businesses to take special care to protect vulnerable populations, including by offering delivery or special shopping hours where possible;

Hydroxychloroquin is not "banned", of course.  It's no longer approved by the FDA for this treatment for rather obvious reasons.

MDs can still prescribe off label, anything.  I doubt many would.

Had Trump never mentioned it, it would not have turned into a political football and just been quietly tested and put to rest.

People let "politics" form their opinions, feelings over facts in effect.  It's the same with wearing masks.

Georgia is up from about 600 cases per day to over 900, today was over 1,000.  Hospital usage is up more slightly.

It's definitely not the right direction.  Traffic was pretty normal today when we went to Costco.


Ya think maybe the protestors/anarchists/rioters/looters/thugs might have something to do with that?

People with sickle cell are more likely to get it.

I suspect the protesters have something to do with this, yes.  I also suspect other behaviors have something to do with this, it's likely not some clean single variable cause.

People are getting close to being back to business as usual in TN except in Nashville Davidson County where the democrat mayor issued an ultimatum/order on people wearing face mask everywhere with fines and penalties if they don't.  No laws now just rule by fiat as the democrats are doing every where they're in charge.  Welcome to the new Venezuela!

The nitwit mayor got a 34% property tax increase through the city council because revenue was down now he's making rules to drive out the tourist trade which a lot of Nashville downtown businesses depend on and where a lot of his revenue comes from.

Most every where else is getting back to normal I even got a call from the VA to schedule a face to face annual exam with my doctor at the Nashville VA Medical Center.

Hong Kong rates have spiked.
Why?  Until this week, they only those who showed up at the hospital sick.
They're now randomly checking people at nursing homes etc. and "surprise, surprise" finding a number of asymptomatic patients.

You check more, you'll find more.

SHOCKINGLY, MOST PEOPLE IN HOSPITALS DON’T HAVE CORONAVIRUS: Stanford expert says 80-85 percent of Texas hospital patients ‘have nothing to do with COVID-19.’

Quote

Scott Atlas, former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center and a senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, said Monday that for people under 70, the death rate from COVID-19 is lower than or equal to the seasonal flu.

“When we see this focus on more cases, it doesn’t really matter how many cases — it only matters who gets the cases. We know that the infection-fatality rate for people under 70 is 0.04 percent — that’s less than or equal to the seasonal flu,” Atlas told Fox News’ “The Story.”

“The cases themselves should not be and were never the focus. It’s only the tragic consequences of the cases. When we look at the cases in every state, the overwhelming majority are younger and healthier people,” he added.

Atlas said the rate at which high-risk people are being affected and whether the death rate from the virus is increasing is what matters.

New cases reported in GA appeared perhaps to have leveled off, but yesterday was a major spike to nearly 4,500 from around 3,000 as a base.  Hospitalizations are now way up from the original base.

https://www.ajc.com/blog/politics/georgia-reactive-makeshift-hospital-atlanta-convention-center/0mQrnN9qhxmOEfIwVK0CzO/

Nearly 4,500 new cases of the COVID-19 were reported on Friday, a new daily record, and roughly 80% of the state's hospital beds were filled, a sign of the strain on the healthcare network.

80% occupancy is a "strain" on the hospital system?
I guess Hong Kong is always under strain as the hospital here regularly run at 90% or so occupancy.
In most businesses (hotels, airlines, cruise ships, etc.) 80% would be considered low...

Yes, 80% hospital usage is high and heading higher, rather fast.

As I noted, the governor is reopening emergency centers for more beds, something we didn't need in April.  And if most of the beds are non-COVID patients, which is almost certainly the case, the numbers are even more concerning.
