@Palandre,
Bullshit. Permeable masks are not impermeable sacks.

The rest of that is just terrible. An RN. Please.

I wear a mask to protect you, you need to wear one to protect me.

Gov. Abbott pauses Texas reopening phases amid statewide COVID-19 spike
Source: ABC 7 News Amarillo

AUSTIN (KVII) — Texas businesses will have to wait a while longer to go back to normal.

Thursday, Governor Greg Abbott announced the Lone Star State will put its reopening plan on hold due to the recent statewide uptick in COVID-19 hospitalizations and cases.

Abbott said this does not roll back any of the opening phases so far, but increases in occupancy are on hold as the state grapples with some of its highest ever hospitalization numbers.

In a statement, the governor said he does not want to move backwards, but does want to ensure Texans stay safe, wear masks and safely face the future.

"The last thing we want to do as a state is go backwards and close down businesses. This temporary pause will help our state corral the spread until we can safely enter the next phase of opening our state for business," he said.

He urged citizens to keep socially distancing and practice hand washing, among other hygiene protocols.

CDC chief says coronavirus cases may be 10 times higher than reported

Agency expands list of people at risk of severe illness, including pregnant women

https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/06/25/coronavirus-cases-10-times-larger/

The number of Americans who have been infected with the novel coronavirus is likely 10 times higher than the 2.3 million confirmed cases, according to the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Our best estimate right now is that for every case that’s reported, there actually are 10 other infections," CDC Director Robert Redfield said Thursday on a call with reporters.

Using that methodology pushes the tally of U.S. cases to at least 23 million. Redfield said the larger estimate is based on blood samples collected from across the country that look for the presence of antibodies to the virus. For every confirmed case of covid-19, 10 more people had antibodies, he said.

Redfield and another top CDC official said that young people are driving the surge in cases in the South and West. They attributed that to the broader testing of people under 50. “In the past, I just don’t think we diagnosed these infections,” Redfield said.

He also estimated that 92 to 95 percent of the U.S. population is still susceptible to the virus.

Redfield noted that in April, however, more than 1 in 4 deaths in the United States was someone who died of complications related to covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. Now, that percentage is about 7 percent, he said. "We’re in a different situation today than we were in March and April where the virus was disproportionately being recognized in older adults,” he said.

Currently, the virus is affecting younger individuals, and fewer are hospitalized or dying. But he said he was “highly concerned” about “the complexity that we’re going to be facing in the fall” when both covid-19 and influenza are likely to be circulating.

“We’re not talking about a second wave right now, we’re still in the first wave,” he said. “That first wave is taking different shapes.”

Above all, he said, people should maintain social distancing, wash hands frequently and properly wear a face covering when they are unable to socially distance.

For the first time, agency officials also said pregnant women may face higher risks of severe illness from the virus than nonpregnant women, including needing treatment in intensive care units and respiratory help with ventilators. However, they do not face higher risk of dying. Officials said they are still researching the effects on newborns

In the CDC report on pregnancy and covid-19, researchers compared the impact of the disease on more than 8,000 pregnant women and 83,000 nonpregnant women during the period from Jan. 22 to June 7.

Pregnant women were over five times more likely to be hospitalized than nonpregnant women, 1.5 times more likely to be admitted to intensive-care units, and 1.7 times more likely to require mechanical ventilation, the report said. There was no higher risk for death among the pregnant women.

The CDC report also found that black and Hispanic pregnant women appear to be disproportionately hit by covid-19.

@roger,
Storing the bodies in refrigerated trucks was infinitely better than storing them in non-refrigerated trucks.

...or on pallets exposed to the elements.

Just hope the trucks are properly and thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before food product is once more shipped in them.

Well, yeah. It was answer to a unique crisis, and kind of creative. Still, I don't recall it being used before we heard of coronavirus.

Novak Djokovic, by most statistics the best tennis player of all time, has tested positive for the COVID-19 after hosting what was pretty much an FU, COVID protest tournament. Once Serbia started opening back up, he created the Adria Tour which went out of its way to completely violate all ideas of social distancing. The players hugged, went clubbing, etc. The stands were packed and it looked like the tournament was actively protesting social distancing protocols. Djokovic is a vocal anti-vaxxer and has criticized the US Open for saying they will put social distancing restrictions on players in order to put on the tournament in NY in September. I think six players are now infected.

Novak Djokovic, the world's No. 1-ranked men's tennis player, has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The Serbian tennis star released a statement on his diagnosis, saying that he and his wife have both contracted the virus after he organized a series of exhibition matches in southeastern Europe.

The events, called the Adria Tour, have been widely criticized for not maintaining significant social distancing protocols.

The stands were packed with fans, as The Associated Press noted. Tennis.com reported that players were seen mingling without proper social distancing, playing in basketball and soccer games, and visiting a nightclub.

Djokovic was photographed in close contact with tennis player Grigor Dimitrov, who has also tested positive for the virus.

"We organized the tournament at the moment when the virus has weakened, believing that the conditions for hosting the Tour had been met," Djokovic said in his statement. "Unfortunately, the virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with."

@roger,
It wasn't required ever before on this scale. We only needed it now thanks the willful ignorance of our executive numbskull.
