Covid-19 Update: 48 Fewer Hospitalizations

Correction: The post originally stated there were 108 fewer  hospitalizations.   Yours truly misread a "9" as a "3."

Diabetes: 41% (75% black)
Cardiovascular disesase: 50% (60% black)

That's impossilbe!!! With all those Freedumb advocates not social distancing and not wearing masks! We need to turn our freedumb over to the government that will care for us.

Hey Dobbs, GIGO. Keep paying for those positives Dobbs. We know what you are up to.

I'll be waiting to hear from Dr. Dobbs if there was any kind of procedural change that caused the drop in hospitalizations. That is a huge drop in one day. It is possible they have dropped off an entire category of patient that was previously being counted, for example they may have previously counted people in rehab due to COVID effects and now are not. Same thing with suspected patients, a huge drop there too.

I hope that is the beginning of a trend.

Where are the cuts in government Reeves? Where is the shared sacrifice?

So... basically, the deaths are largely attributable to nursing homes (germ centers... ever been in one? Housekeeping is extremely poor!!) and those who are high-risk. Someone PLEASE explain how we got to this place? How statistics and fear took over common sense?

It's horrible that people have died, but people die EVERY SINGLE DAY. Some naturally, some tragically. People die of causes at much higher rates than this virus and the world still spins. The whole COVID-19 situation stinks and was/is nothing more than a manipulation campaign but some very sadistic people. (And before anyone blows a gasket, I'm not saying the virus isn't real and deadly... I'm saying it wasn't worth destroying the economy and locking the nation down. The only people content with the lockdown are those who are comfortable with their hands extended out to the government.)

@12:18p- I'd be willing to bet everything I own the decline is due to the cleaning up numbers. I firmly believe the cleanup will continue and eventually expose the EXTREME over-inflation of cases and related deaths.

I personally know of a 90+ year old man that went to a Jackson area ER due to an accident (he fell.) (Note: He's been in isolation for over 2 months.) Because the accident knocked the breath out of him, and he stated that to the robotic nurse, he was immediately whisked to COVID-19 unit due to "shortness of breath." So essentially, he was TESTED, LOGGED, AND TREATED for a virus that he WASN'T EVEN EXPOSED TO until the robotic nurse followed government protocol and placed him in the viral unit. I swear, it's like medical professionals have lost their common sense and all knowledge from their education. WHY would they do this?? WHO in their right mind thinks this is good policy and procedure??

So what? Death. Hospitalization at full taxpayer expense. Kidney damage. Dialysis shortages. Strokes. Kawasaki diseases. Heart damage. Long term COVID damage costs and suffering. A worse economic outcome than if folks followed even the most basis CDC guidance, long term.

I know, I know. You're for "What's in This For Me?" and "The Heck with Everybody Else."

Short term gain, long term pain (for others).

You hope. FreeDumb. Tea Party, ain't a gonna tell me what to do!!!!

Good luck.

What's so damn disturbing is so many on the far left who await the numbers everyday in Mississippi and elsewhere hoping there is bad news so it will help destroy Trump and the Republican Party. One of the most shameful things in my many decades on this earth. 😷

It will continue to be what we don't know about CV19 as yet that is dangerous.

We don't know if it is seasonal and our warmer weather is helping.

We still haven't seen 14 days of a consistent fall in cases.

We still don't know why CV19 children are showing up in hospitals and how many will have long term damage. Nor do we know how many adults will be left with long term damage.

We still aren't prepared for consequences because we don't know what they are with the mutations of this virus that is NOT like the ones in the past.

And, yes, with the new drug available, fewer will die or need to be in ICU and with more testing available, those infected can be treated earlier. Sadly, that varies widely from State to State...good that we are red. Not good for our Nation that it matters.

12:40 What is needed is a plan, which is exactly what we don't have now. When we did have a plan for phased reopening that Trump said he supported he turned right around the next day and celebrated protesters that were against it. Anyone that wanted a test could get it but actually almost nobody could unless they were knocking on death's door. Hydroxychloroquine was a game changer that turned out to be a dud. CDC tries to issue guidelines for businesses to reopen and the White House shuts it down because it is too "prescriptive". The false puffery is doing just as much to make people discouraged as the disease itself.

Jesus Christ on a cracker, what we need is good, solid leadership to provide a path to reasonable economic operations that is clearly communicated and supported by scientific data. We absolutely need widespread antibody testing to see who is still susceptible to the disease, a plan to open up businesses and activities that are not excessively risky vectors for epidemic spread, effective contact tracing to ensure outbreaks are controlled quickly, and a way to protect those at risk of complications.

Worse for whom?

Anonymous said...

Worse for America. Worse for everyone, long term. Worse as in "W", a W shaped recovery.

Mainline GOPers, now resigned to POTUS Biden, and most likely a Dem Senate, don't want any more aid, so, we're basically screwed with the half assed effort so far. So, when COVID hits the second worse wave, with flu and COVID ravaging, it's going to get worse, not better. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. And shit like rushing to re open barbershops and toting toy ARs about screaming at nurses doesn't help. It hurts to be stupid.

"A double-dip recession would significantly heighten the risks for an already debilitated U.S. economy. Congress has provided roughly $3 trillion in aid — by far its largest rescue ever — to help households and companies survive the next few months. That short-term aid, though, assumes any recovery will last. If a second downturn were to flare up, it’s far from clear that Congress would be ready to offer trillions more to enable businesses to survive yet another round of months-long shutdowns.

Nor do many companies have the cash reserves to cushion against a second recession. And just as threatening, a double-tip downturn would sap the confidence of individuals and businesses that is essential to an economic bounce-back. If consumers don’t trust that a recovery will last, many won’t resume spending, and the economy would struggle to rebound."

@2:29p- Hydroxychloroquine didn't turn out to be a dud... geez. It works/worked for many!! And, it's insanely cheaper than the Fauci backed drug! Not every drug for every disease works on every person. Gasp... every person cannot tolerate and/or see results from Tamiflu... but it's touted as the Holy Grail for flu! Not every person with diabetes injects the same insulin. Not every heart disease patient takes the same drugs... and on and on.

What we needed from day one was NOT to shut down our country! What we needed was for our President to close the borders (he's tried for years) and stop travel immediately (I believe he shut down China as soon as possible, but should have shut down all international travel immediately.) The initial cases came from international travelers. My favorite was Gates' home state seeing some of the first documented hotspots. He's such a slimeball!!

What we needed was for VULNERABLE people to lockdown... not everyone! What we need was an honest media and government... NEVER going to happen! What we need are MORE healthcare providers willing to speak out with the truth and not cower in fear of losing licenses. What we need is for people to stop living in fear of a virus that has killed far less than many other illnesses/accidents/murders (abortion). What we need is common sense!!!

No way - Mississippi Today plastered all over social media this morning a story titled with how we have a record number of cases!

12:40, I'm not content with the lockdown, but I also realize that crap like you are spewing has nothing to do with reality.

First off, the number of deaths in MS is not "largely" due to nursing homes / long term care facilities - today they announced that the total deaths from LTC was 43%. Yes, that is a big number but when I took math many decades ago, largely did not define less than half.

Also, your "People die of causes at much higher rates than this virus and the world still spins" is an interesting statement, but it would be much more valuable if you could provide one cause that is 'much higher rate' than COVID.

While you are looking for that, I'll sit back and have a drink - without my hand reaching out for the government to put anything in it. Let me know when you have your answer.

Too bad you don't have any common sense to go along with your "math" many decades ago.

Largely, can most certainly be half or less. It is the largest population of groups. It's not the LTC deaths vs everyone else.

And, while you guys are arguing over whom to "lock-down", the same selfish narcissists as usual, are circling above Madison, pointlessly joyriding in their loud little planes, depriving people of of desperately-needed sleep. Sleep deprivation is an immunosuppressant. And in a time when people need their immune systems the most (to fight-off Covid-19), these guys are being allowed, in essence, to MURDER with noise, the healthcare workers and first responders in Madison, who work night shifts.

UMC had more patients in the hospital and specifically in their ICU today than all but one day during this entire event (tied for 2nd,)at least according to a report released by UMC internally to employees.

The entire group of metropolitan area hospitals are at full capacity, this is the result of the COVID-19 patients and the usual trauma and illness associated with the "return to normal" operations.

You usually have pretty good sources at UMC--they are at least as good as the ones I have. Isn't this the truth on the COVID-19 hospital capacity locally?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
