The Mississippi State Department of Health reported 751 new cases of the Wuhan virus yesterday as well as 10 new deaths. The total number of cases is 85,116. The virus has caused 2,536 deaths. Nursing home deaths comprise 40% of overall Covid-19 deaths in Mississippi. There are 67,918 recoveries. More information and a complete list of infected counties can be found at the MSDH website. The Rt factor is 0.92.

 The big chart improved yet again.  ICU's and vents fell although hospitalizations rose again.

Here is a little lagniappe.

nursing home death percentage continues to fall...

Mississippi is no. 8 for cases per 100,000 population, so we are still i the top 10 states per capa for new infections. Mississippi Universities today (NYT data) 842 cases in 10 schools, so need to be really cautious at the universities. Tate needs to extend the mask mandate until we have a vaccine deployed period.

The 9/3/2020 NYT also has a front page article about hunger and food shortages in Jackson and Greenville that is worth reading.

I see the Rt creeping back up. The improvement is slowing down and we are still 7th highest in infection rate and #1 for mortality according to the Washington Post. We've got a long way to go before we are even average.

Nursing home death percentage is decreasing, but the normal people dying of COVID is increasing. The community spread is still out of control. Covidiots go to bars, parties, picnics, weddings, funerals, and other close gatherings under the misguided thought "if I'm not sick then what is it to anyone else what I do?" and then bring it back home to innocent members of the household who are trying to stay safe. It's like a majority of Mississippians need to retake 8th grade science about how infectious diseases work.

I wish they would start reporting just active cases. Not every case since the beginning of time. This is similar to you asking me how many people live on earth and me telling you that 107 billion people have lived on earth. It is great to see hospitalizations fall. That's been the best measure of what is really going on with the virus. Good job Mississippi!

Odd how so many commenters here exhibit the same phraseology, sentence structure and worn out complaints.

the number of Folks on the Res. this weekend will be a good indicator of what's happening across the state. My bet is that they are going to be out in full force. That Rt factor will be over 1 in a week or two. More people aren't wearing mask, but worst the all they aren't social distancing.

Lol. Cases. We can immediately determine the person with sub-90 IQ.

When are you people going to realize that normal people are over this nothing burger. We have lives to lead. If I get sick that is MY business... not yours. Masks don't do shit obviously. Everywhere I go people are wearing them and people are still getting the virus. IT'S A VIRUS PEOPLE. Big deal.

11:49: Thank you for making it clear you have the very real problem at the root of rapid spread in Mississippi of this very, very contagious and dangerous virus, especially by people who are unaware they have it but are asymptomatic, unaware they are bringing the virus to family member hosts who may get really sick or die: Covidiocy. The I don’t care about anyone else or anything in general, let chaos reign, Covidiocy. The I disregard of the studies showing that universal mask wearing is more effective than a strict lockdown and is our best ticket to getting businesses and schools safety open. How dare you put the rest of us in danger by your careless disregard for the shared health of us all. We are all in the same lifeboat until a safe, effective and fully tested vaccine creates the herd immunity we need. Quit endangering the boat we all share.

823 cases and 23 deaths today. That Rt will be back above 1.0 tomorrow.

Hospitalizations ticked down a little, but ICU and vents both ticked up.

I knew it was too good to be true. Labor day gatherings are going to do a number on us.

1:44: Yes, the mechanism is easy for transmission: one unmasked living host within proximity of another unmasked living host. That's the simple if relentless logic of the virsu.

12:55, Scared much about something you nor anyone else has control of? I happen to agree with some of what 11:49 says, but I'm sure you are one of the so called experts we hear from on a daily basis. This too shall not pass but recycle for the remainder of time as other viruses have. Some continue and some go dormant, but they are all out there. Stay safe and get tested, again if done already. I myself have had three employer mandated tests, 1 actual based on Dr. Dobbs due to other employees testing positive.

Well hell 1:44, we all gotta die sometime.

Wonder if St. Anthony discussed this with the schools.

@12:55....11:49 here. So you are telling me you just sit at home ALL the time? I do where a mask in public. Not because I believe in them... just so folks like you won't look down there nose at me. Also, have you noticed the number of folks wearing them incorrectly?

Anonymous said...

2:43 (11:49): Thanks. Your wearing a mask in public is all I was asking for. Please keep wearing it until we get to the other side of this pandemic.

Wow. What started with a "screw you" met with a finger-wagging lecture between two commenters apparently ended with honest communication and mutual respect. There may be hope for civilized society after all.

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.
