The death rate among the infected is going down as our ability to treat people improves.  We have the simple face-down positioning that is saving countless people, and the old drugs that are being tried in new ways, and the new drugs being developed.  The monoclonal antibody treatment the president received is of course not acceptable to everyone, including strict vegetarians and vegans, because it is derived from cells originally obtained from an aborted fetus.  But it's an option that is saving lives, or so they say.

Wisconsin is battling America's worst coronavirus outbreak

(Abridged from an article by Andrew Romano)

Look at a map of daily COVID-19 cases in the U.S. Most of the Northeast and West Coast is yellow, indicating limited spread. The numbers across the Southeast tend to be moderate, or orange. Move into the Upper Midwest and more red hot spots start to appear.

And then there’s one state that’s covered in crimson: Wisconsin.  Right now Wisconsin is battling the worst coronavirus outbreak in America.
Wisconsin’s numbers are sobering. On Thursday the state’s new daily case count cleared 3,000 for the first time. Its seven-day average (2,491) has more than tripled since the start of September. Daily hospitalizations have also tripled over the same period. Nearly 20 percent of Wisconsin’s COVID-19 tests are coming back positive.

Overall, the Badger State has logged 17,437 new cases over the last seven days — more than any other state except the far more populous Texas and California. On a per capita basis, that’s more new cases (299 per 100,000 residents) than any other state except the far less populous Dakotas, and several times more than Michigan (75), Illinois (123) or Minnesota (137).

Meanwhile, on a list of the 100 counties nationwide with the highest number of recent cases per resident, all but two counties with more than 300 cases in the last seven days are located in Wisconsin: Oconto (365), Winnebago (1,439), Shawano (337), Calumet (395), Waupaca (307), Outagamie (1,023) and Brown (1,409). In total, there are 16 Wisconsin counties on that list — the most of any state. And unlike other hard-hit states such as Idaho, Montana and the Dakotas, Wisconsin’s hot spots aren’t dispersed across vast distances; they’re contiguous and concentrated around cities such as Green Bay in the state’s northeast corner, making the spread harder to contain.

Next week Wisconsin officials plan to open a 530-bed field hospital at the state fairgrounds to keep COVID-19 patients from flooding heath care facilities, which Democratic Gov. Tony Evers recently characterized as being “on the brink” of collapse.

“We hoped this day wouldn’t come,” Evers lamented. “But unfortunately, Wisconsin is in a much different, more dire place today. ... There’s no other way to put it: We are overwhelmed.”

As Barry Burden, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, told NBC News earlier this week, “Wisconsin has become the poster child for how things can go wrong.”

The most disturbing thing about Wisconsin’s outbreak is that it didn’t have to be this bad. NBC described the problem as “political trench warfare between the Democratic governor and the Republicans who control the state Legislature.” That’s technically accurate, but it also makes it sound like both sides are defending equally sensible positions aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.

They’re not. On the one hand, Evers has repeatedly tried to do everything in his power to contain the pandemic. On the other, Republicans have repeatedly challenged Evers’s authority and thwarted his efforts, blocking the sort of basic public-health measures other states have enacted while touting themselves as champions of “individual liberty.”

The first and perhaps most consequential of these skirmishes came in the spring, when the Legislature’s Republican leaders filed a lawsuit arguing that Evers’s “safer at home” order would leave the state’s economy “in shambles.” On May 13 the state’s Supreme Court overturned the order. Evers was not pleased, telling CNN that the court’s ruling “puts our state into chaos.”

“Now we have no plan and no protections for the people of Wisconsin,” the governor said. “When you have more people in a small space — I don’t care if it’s bars, restaurants or your home — you’re going to be able to spread the virus. And so now, today, thanks to the Republican legislators who convinced four Supreme Court justices to not look at the law but [to] look at their political careers, I guess, it’s a bad day for Wisconsin.”
Bars and restaurants immediately reopened for business. Patrons crowded in. For a while, the state’s case count stayed relatively low, even as the virus surged to record levels in the South and West. But that only bred complacency, and by the time college students started returning for the fall semester, public health efforts had become so politicized that Evers had less power to slow the spread than governors in neighboring states.

In July, for instance, Evers issued a statewide order mandating masks in enclosed spaces, which he extended last month to Nov. 21. Yet even though nearly three-quarters of Wisconsinites favor Evers’s mandate, Republican lawmakers are backing another suit against it. A judge is expected to rule any day now.  Same goes for Evers’s latest order limiting indoor capacity at bars, restaurants and stores to 25 percent as the virus surges. “Do I expect there to be litigation on this?” Ryan Nilsestuen, Evers’s top attorney, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this week. “Absolutely.”

This relentless campaign to delegitimize pandemic precautions as partisan overreach comes with a cost. It discourages compliance. It disincentivizes enforcement. And it preemptively restricts the government’s ability to address a worsening crisis.  Consider the fact that in California and New York, two of the hardest-hit states, indoor dining has only recently resumed at 25 percent capacity despite months of low or declining case counts.  Yet in Wisconsin, people have been drinking and dining indoors since the spring, and it took a full month of exponential spread before Evers felt like he could attempt to limit capacity statewide. (Local jurisdictions such as Madison and Milwaukee put limits in place earlier; today they have lower case counts.) Even now, in the midst of America’s worst outbreak, Wisconsinites can still drink and dine indoors. And now infections have been radiating outward from college campuses and blanketing the state.

Coronavirus cases set new single-day records in six U.S. states and worldwide
Gov. Mike DeWine of Ohio said, "We're sick of wearing masks, we're sick of all of this, and I get it, but we've got to hang in there for our kids. We've got to hang in there for ourselves."

Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma and West Virginia all had record single-day increases in cases on Friday, according to NBC News' tally.

The World Health Organization meanwhile announced that 350,766 new infections were reported Friday, surpassing by nearly 12,000 a record set earlier in the week. The new cases include more than 109,000 from Europe alone.

In the United States, the governor of Ohio told reporters Friday that he believes there is no single reason why cases are rising, but he believes people aren't taking enough precautions against infection.

Ohio set a single-day record of 1,840 new cases, and Oklahoma of 1,524.

Missouri recorded just under 3,000 new cases, according to NBC News' tally. The state also set a new single-day record for deaths at 129.

Cases have also risen in West Virginia with 382 new cases Friday; Montana with 722; and North Dakota with 656, according to the tally.

In Montana, cases have more than doubled in the last two weeks, compared to the two weeks before. There has also been a staggering 230 percent jump in Covid-19 related deaths in just over two months, according to Gov. Steve Bullock.

Coronavirus cases have nearly doubled over a two-week period in New Mexico, New Hampshire, and Vermont.

Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, told NBC's "Nightly News" that he hopes a potential second wave would not be as bad as what the country saw in the spring.  "Part of the reason is we do have more testing available now and so we can tell when things are starting to ramp up and get bad, and hopefully change our behavior," he said.

I was just going to post a link to that article, about Ohio, that you posted. Wal-Mart over here has all of their doors open again and they are no longer counting the people as they go in. And no one is standing outside making sure people are masked up. Carts handles are still being wiped down but that's about it. 

 

I was in a parking lot where I could see the front entrance to the Olive Garden. Two unmasked women came out and one was carrying an infant seat. I can't imagine taking a little baby in a restaurant right now. Especially when they offer curbside service.

Millions will be ordered not to leave their local areas in new Covid clampdown
Edward Malnick,The Telegraph•October 10, 2020
Millions of people will be asked not to travel outside their local areas and could be banned from mixing with other households, even outdoors, amid fears that some hospitals in the North-West could be overwhelmed within days.

This weekend, Downing Street was briefing mayors and council leaders on the planned three-tier "Local Covid Alert Levels" system of restrictions for England, expected to be announced by Boris Johnson on Monday.

Joe Anderson, the Mayor of Liverpool, said he was in discussions with Number 10 about placing the city into the third tier – with the toughest restrictions – amid mounting concern over the number of cases and the capacity of intensive care units at hospitals in the area.

The talks included discussions about deals that would give local leaders greater autonomy over measures and testing in their area in exchange for helping to enforce and explain the rules.

Plans for the third "very high" tier are understood to include guidance asking residents not to travel outside their area other than for specific reasons such as work or education. Local mayors said they expected pubs and bars in these areas to have to close, with restaurants able to remain open until 10pm. 

In telephone calls with local leaders, Boris Johnson's aides also indicated that areas put into the third tier could face bans on multiple households mixing either indoors or outdoors.

Separately, Downing Street is inviting leaders whose areas are due to be in the "very high" tier to request the closure of specific types of hospitality or leisure venues, including beauty salons and sports centres.

That came after acknowledgement that the Government had not done enough to achieve "local buy-in" for some of the existing restrictions faced by areas with high infection rates in the North-East and the North-West.

Under the plans, the Government will retain the right to order local closures if necessary, but mayors and council leaders have been told that ministers want them to "co-design" restrictions to ensure that there is local consent for the new rules and that they can help to explain them to residents.

As of Saturday evening, there were a further 81 coronavirus deaths, according to the Government's daily figures, while an additional 15,166 people tested positive for the virus.

In other developments:

Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, is said to have been shut out of several high-level meetings relating to Covid-19 amid concerns about leaks from Whitehall. A Department of Health source said it was "completely false to suggest the Health Secretary hasn't been present for the key meetings". 

The Government could toughen powers available to councils to order the closure of businesses failing to comply with Covid-19 rules after Manchester City Council said it should be able to close any premises within 24 hours if it failed to comply with improvement notices. 

Local councils are expecting to be given an increased role in local contact tracing, as well as more autonomy over where local testing units are located. 

It emerged that coronavirus rates in university towns are over 40 per cent higher than in the rest of the UK, with infections in some student areas rising by up to 38 times since freshers' week.

Ministers are drawing up plans to expand the effectiveness of NHS Test and Trace to include a South Korea-inspired layer of "backward" contact tracing designed to identify "super spreader" events.   

Traditional Boxing Day hunt meets across England and Wales have been cancelled amid fears that they will attract gatherings of spectators.

Under the "Local Covid Alert Levels" system, all areas of the country would be categorised as "medium", "high", or "very high" in a "traffic light" approach. Liverpool is expected to be first to enter the third tier and discussions are ongoing with leaders in Greater Manchester and Lancashire, where infection rates are also causing grave concern.

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, who has been in regular contact with Mr Hancock, is understood to believe that additional restrictions in the capital are now highly likely. In practice, that would mean London being put into the "high" tier.

Large parts of northern England have already been hit with a range of additional curbs on social life, including a ban on different households mixing indoors, but the south has largely escaped stricter measures other than the national "rule of six" and the 10pm curfew for pubs and restaurants.

On Saturday,  Jamie Driscoll, the mayor of North of Tyne, said: "It's notable that, at the start of this, the whole country was placed in lockdown when cases were at their worst in London. Now that cases are at their worst in the North, we are getting a very different response."

The three-tier system is meant to clarify the patchwork of rules for England that has evolved since infection rates began to climb again last month, but the proposal to allow local leaders to request hospitality and leisure closures in their areas would lead to a less uniform system than had been expected.

Saturday's talks, led by Sir Edward Lister, Mr Johnson's chief strategic adviser, came after Mr Anderson said: "The main point of the imposition of the measures are clearly that – imposition. We have not been consulted."

Amid discussions about local leaders taking a greater role, Andy Burnham, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, said: "We believe much stronger enforcement powers are what is needed. 

"I'm talking about summary closures powers for premises that are not Covid-secure. And I'm not just talking about pubs or restaurants – I'm talking about shops or any setting where the right procedures are not in place."
On Friday, Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor, announced that the Government would fund 67 per cent of the wages of staff working for firms forced to shut by Covid-19 restrictions. 

But in an open letter, Northern leaders wrote: "Earlier this year, the Government set its national furlough scheme at 80 per cent. We can see no justifiable reason why the local furlough scheme should be set at 67 per cent. To accept it would be to treat hospitality workers as second-class citizens, and we think that is wrong."

On Saturday night, Mr Hancock was accused of breaking his own curfew by remaining in a Commons bar beyond 10pm last week.

He also joked that Public Health England was "in charge of the payment methodology" – a reference to last week's testing data fiasco – "so I will not be paying anything" for drinks, The Mail on Sunday reported. Mr Hancock has denied claims that he broke the Government's pubs and restaurants curfew. 

Meanwhile, epidemiologists have questioned the decision to charge football fans £15 a game to watch Premier League matches on television, fearing it could drive supporters to gather in pubs.

Because of the rapidly rising COVID-19 caseload in North Dakota, only 29 such beds were available early this week.  North Dakota had the highest number of cases per capita on average over the last week, according to the CDC’s COVID-19 data tracker, and from the number of serious cases flooding hospitals, it’s clear that this isn’t from increased testing.

Close on its heels is South Dakota...

Yemen has held at just over 2,000 for quite a while.  Do they have it controlled ....or did they stop reporting?  Ya just never know. 

 

Horrid that India is increasing so much it's nearly up with U.S.  Praying for Sarath and Sruthy and families there.  Unfortunately, we'll never hear anything again from them since India booted out so many agencies/programs for the poor.  Glad he was adult and she was nearly graduated from high school.   :sigh:

At least 6 people in a local community about 6-10 miles from us have or had COVID. A married couple in their 30s, a married couple in their mid 70s (she died last week), that lady's brother in his late 60s, and man in his 40s. He has a wife and 5 kids but I don't know if any of them are sick.  This man is a minister and a rural mail carrier. At least 51 school kids and 9 school staff were in quarantine as of last weekend. This is stats from a couonty school system with several schools. The local health department had a news conference on local TV and said they are no longer able to identify clusters of cases. They said to exercise extreme caution when going away from home, etc. because it's everywhere and they don't know where since they can't ID clusters anymore. They said "We are in a very bad place in the pandemic right now".

Our State had very low case counts for quite some time, then the count started coming up.  Our own small town of 10,000 folks is increasing  as well as several small towns around us has it climbing too.

I heard about that TheCG but I wasn't understanding the correlation between the mink and the virus. I see, a vector. Suppose it will mutate yet again. 

 

Humans have culled cows, pigs chickens and now mink by the millions. That's a sad thought.

It's been well over 2 wks since ALL of us were in a city hospital....for my mom's condition; not COVID.  Seems like the incubation period is passed....if any of us might had caught something there.  :amen:    Everyone was masked and they checked anyone coming into the hospital.  But.... 

 

None of us in good position to catch this.  My bronchial stuff is going over the top again right now.  Short of actual bronchitis.....just allergic response to whatever.  Yet....we were there for my mom...and my dad.  And prayed for protection.  And would pray for sustaining grace if we got it anyway.  Ya do what you choose to do.  :shrug: 

 

MtRider  ....yeah, miss Ambergris.  Haven't checked CO stats in a month...mebbe tomorrow.  :offtobed:

5 more cases in that community I mentioned above. Another couple in their 30s and their three little boys, ages 10, 6 and 4. The husband's parents both have covid and that's where the family got it. The grandpa died last night. :(

I am so over this virus. Wearing mask today was rough for DH while doing his therapy.  I think I heard that the numbers are up in VA but thinking more of Northern VA.  Haven't been keeping up lately.

 

I am starting to get a bit worried about Ambergris.  Seems the last post was around the 13th of Oct.  This isn't like her.  :(.  Hope she is just busy and nothing is wrong.  though I thought I read somewhere that she had a new job and working lots of hours. But not sure.  I miss her Virus counts for the states.
