Inside my stats in CA:  cases still ticking up due to testing.  Hospital admits for CV19 just fell off a cliff!  Discharges 2:1 over admits.  This is a great sign.  Again considering it’s probably 10-14 days from infection to an admission, we are probably a good 2 weeks post real concern.  Plus homeless and SNF folks have nowhere to discharge to at present, and those populations appear to be driving the positives out there.  I believe in CA we are post pandemic and dealing with a flu at this point...no more public health concern for the masses, just the vulnerable...plus we were 90 and sunny all weekend, frying up that little virus!  Let’s Go! 

 

stop being positive...more doom and gloom please.

I just got arrested for swinging in the park.  Not sure how I'm going to explain that to the wife.  

Did you used to hold a fairly important position in the Bison Athletic Department?

So y’all think I should be able to have my wedding as if nothing has happened in late August? Had to move it once already because of this crap.

Burgum suggested he may be able to relax the shutdown of certain businesses this weekend in his press briefing today.

I'm in the same boat as you, mine is in Early September but we haven't moved anything yet or plan to until otherwise told.

On the flip-side, will COVID-19 do anything to speed up a divorce?  Asking for a friend...

I joked to my fiancé that if we can make it through this, then we can make it through anything.

We had two weeks where we were in our apartment constantly, which got nervy towards the end,  but she has gotten back to work.

Burgum like WANTS everyone to die I guess. Amirite??

Did the NoDak Governor give any specifics on what bars, restaurants, etc. need to do or what capacity they are allowing or is that coming another day?

I'm asking because I can't find it anywhere other than the announcement that they are opening up.

Curious is the flu also disproportionately effects NYC too?

Using the 2017-18 flu season data which was particularly bad year, NYC saw a comparative 30% higher death rate than the national average. So the numbers say the flu does disproportionately impact NYC too. 

The US crude death rate for the flu in 2017-18 per 100,000: 17.1
https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/mortality-dashboard.htm#

There is a lot of information to unpack here, but it is a compilation of all mortality data for NYC from 2017. Unfortunately, it does not have hospitalization data. https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/doh/downloads/pdf/vs/2017sum.pdf

NYC Influenza & Pneumonia Deaths (2017 - Page 62): 1,985 
Crude Death Rate Per 100,000: 22.6
Total Deaths from all causes in 2017: 54,319

Hospitalizations for all of New York state for 2017-18 flu season: 23,337
Total positive flu tests: 82,884
Total Positive flu tests in NYC specifically: 45,368
https://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/communicable/influenza/surveillance/2017-2018/archive/2018-05-19_flu_report.pdf

 NYC has a website dedicated specifically to recording and tracking COVID data (March 10th to April 26th). 
https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19-data.page

Positive Cases: 156,000
Hospitalizations: 40,050
Confirmed deaths: 11,718
Probable deaths: 5,228
Reported as COVID: 12,287
Crude Death Rate Per 100,000: 139.4

Full disclosure: I have no idea what hospitalizations are defined as.

Guessing burgum will allow people to get haircuts again.

Probably a step by step process.

Maybe then restaurants with every other table available.

And in 4 years crowded bars.

2017-18 flu season was brutal, but still absolutely nothing like what we've seen here with covid in terms of total numbers and complexity. 

One thing that does seem similar between the two is the effect on healthy adults in their 20s and 30s.  That's not to say overall total numbers are the same.  But that flu season sticks in my memory, because there were so many instances of otherwise healthy 20 or 30-somethings who came to the ER feeling unwell.  You turned around, and 2 hrs later they were on a ventilator, plummeting blood pressure, etc.  I haven't seen that with any other flu season, but it's happening with covid too.

Almost everyone had concurrent pneumonia that year too, no matter the patient age.

He hinted at 1/2 occupancy.  Made a point to call out not fully stocking the freezer expecting a full weekend.  

We will see how it goes.  Give people options.

I'm supposed to be in a wedding in Idaho at the end of June and I'm kinda wary of traveling. We'll see what changes over the next month here.

223 of Minnesotas 286 Covid deaths have been in long term care facilities.  Though I'm sure the number of deaths in long term care facilities would have been much higher if all high school activities in the state hadn't been cancelled when they were.
