mofa: Not a hospital issue but a Covid-19 breakthrough anecdote: a couple I know in Florida, both fully vaccinated (pfizer) and both in their 70s came down with the Delta variant last week. They've were fully masked from March 2020 thru May 2021, but then they added one deviation: they started going to restaurants once per week (and keeping masks on in other public indoor spaces).

They've got mild symptoms and aren't hospitalized. (Mild enough that they didn't tell me until this week). The husband has diabetes as an underlying condition.


It really doesn't help to give anecdotes of mild breakthrough cases. The unvaccinated use it as a reason to not bother with getting their shots, and it can panic vaccinated people who are still at a vanishingly low risk of serious illness.

Louisiana's Governor ordered mask wearing for everyone in public spaces starting tomorrow.  Grumbling ensues.

At least 2 hospitals in Louisiana yesterday said they are full, cannot take in any patients.

Just found out a couple of hours ago a fellow I did some work with, and saw/talked to about 4 weeks ago, died of Covid.

Yea, this aint even close to being over.  Stay safe.

So the vaccine worked and kept them from getting a serious disease.

Nice.

Also, if your unvaccinated by choice this is a complete lie, don't get vaccinated.
