covid mutates like the flu and cold viruses??


say it ain't so!!

So, 7% of the 100K cases yesterday is a total of 7K non-delta cases on a peak day... Meaning that, at least, in the background of the parade of bad news, the good news is that the vaccine campaign is well on the way to exterminating all other variants.

Great jerb, Republicans. Note that every state to the right of California on the chart either voted for Trump in the 2020 election, or was one of the last few battleground states to be counted:

Oregon is fairly high up that list of blue states. I check the numbers for the state and I'm like, "yikes, really?" and then I look at the breakdown by county and I'm like, "oh."

But every single chart of COVID statistics is fairly useless without separating out vaccination status. It needs to be split out because it's more accurate and it shows us how effective the vaccines really are. Especially once you look at hospitalizations and deaths.

Your chart clearly shows that the only State that knows what they are doing is South Dakota. And we should all do that, whatever they are doing.

Kill off 90% of your state's population or keep killing them until you get to South Dakota's population density.

Or just don't test.

The part that should raise some concern: "It could be February before all eligible Americans get at least 1 Covid-19 vaccine dose, analysis shows"

This year is going to look like last year, and next year is going to look like this year should've looked.

Settle in, folks, it's going to be another shiatty winter nightmare.

And that chart was from a week ago. It's gotten steadily worse since then.

Not at  all.

It'll be worse. Children unmasked in the classrooms.

Here's hospitalizations in OK just released for COVID.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em. 24% of those hospitalized are vaccinated.

It doesnt matter. An infection is an infection. Its a situation that by rights we never should have gotten to, and it already spiraled way out of control

Most people think that just because the breakthrough % THAT WE KNOW OF is so low that its no biggie for vaccinated people. This is because most people are damn idiots. We knew a year ago that this was a highly asymptomatic disease. And while most people say that no symptoms means no big deal, it means exactly the opposite. No symptoms simply means it snuck past your immune system and its free to mutate as it wants to. Now you make something more infectious than chicken pox, with the added bonus of retaining equal viral loads in vaccinated or non vaccinated people alike, and every single one of those breakthrough cases becomes a vector for a new variant that is even worse than Delta

All of this in a vascular disease, which means it has the potential to fark with literally any part of your body. Because we failed to contain it when we had the chance, its entirely possible now that it will mutate in a way that would let it pass the blood/brain barrier. Its entirely possible it already did that considering the cognitive effects its reported to have. So the only realistic possible way to contain this in a way that wont turn into a complete nightmare would be a hard 2 week lockdown. Which wont happen, so we are completely farked

ಠ~ಠ
The vaccines work.
The numbers aren't as scary as you think.

This CDC report found a very high rate of Delta variant infection in vaccinated people in a Massachusetts county outbreak, but few hospitalizations. Out of the 469 COVID infections in the report, 346 were fully vaccinated, and only four of those (1.2%) were hospitalized (two with pre-existing health issues). Of course, in that report, only five people total were hospitalized -- so in this highly-vaccinated population that the Delta variant tore through, 80% of those hospitalized were vaccinated. But a 1.2% total hospitalization rate is far lower than would be expected in an unvaccinated population.

You should also look at the chart right above the one you posted (on page 9 of the report). 95% of cases are still in the unvaccinated population. The reason there are a high proportion of vaccinated people in the hospital is because a lot of the older, frailer, people are vaccinated, but their immune systems don't work as well even after getting the vaccine.

Yeah, those numbers are worrisome and going up. The vaccine works nice got darted as a paramedic in january.

I really want a booster asap. My gf is a provider covering in rural OK this week. She's sending patients to Denver by fixed wing. She had to debate which patient got bipap and which got vapotherm because they only has one of each.

Her main okc hospital had 99 covid patients at the peak. The models are showing over 150 on September first.

I'm vaccinated and plan on getting boosters asap. But also breaking out the respirator for anytime I'm working as a medic again and a n95 in the classroom.  Fauci told McCarthy today he expects 200k cases a day again with a 1000x higher viral load.

This is going to suck.
