Turkey(s) with a side dish of Covid...
Warning of a surge on top of a surge, U.S. health officials caution Thanksgiving travelers.
Top federal health officials on Sunday forecast a post-Thanksgiving spike in coronavirus infections, deaths and stress on hospitals and medical staff. At the same time, they said that it was still possible to blunt the deadly rise with the tried and true measures of mask wearing and social distancing.

Dr. Deborah L. Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, urged Americans to take it upon themselves to “protect yourself and your family,” even in states and cities where authorities had not required any such measures. During an appearance on CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” Dr. Birx seemed to be speaking to the political divide in the country, directly addressing “incredibly independent and fabulous Americans” who may be skeptical of measures to limit the spread of the virus.

Taking perhaps the strongest line of several top officials who spoke on Sunday, she said that travelers “have to assume that you were exposed and you became infected and you really need to get tested in the next week.” She urged that travelers avoid anyone in their family over 65 or with underlying illnesses.

Virus Deaths Approach Spring Record Amid Changing U.S. Crisis
How the virus kills in America, though, has changed in profound ways.

Months of suffering have provided a horrific but valuable education: Doctors and nurses know better how to treat patients who contract the virus and how to prevent severe cases from ending in fatality, and a far smaller proportion of people who catch the virus are dying from it than were in the spring, experts say.

Yet the sheer breadth of the current outbreak means that the cost in lives lost every day is still climbing. More than 170,000 Americans are now testing positive for the virus on an average day, straining hospitals across much of the country, including in many states that had seemed to avoid the worst of the pandemic. More than 1.1 million people tested positive in the past week alone.

(...)

“We are at risk of repeating what happened in April,” Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and a member of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s coronavirus task force, said of the death toll.

“Once you go over the case cliff, where you have so many cases that you overwhelm the system, basically at that point when you fall off that case cliff, you’re going to see mortality rates go up substantially,” he said. “I shudder to imagine what things might be like in two weeks.”

With an inconsistent and shifting response from government officials, the virus surged in the Sun Belt in the summer, and then began rising steadily through the Midwest and the Great Plains — and then all over in recent weeks. The country reached a peak seven-day average of 176,000 reported cases on Wednesday, and there is reason to fear the worst is still coming. Outbreaks continue to grow in Southern California, West Texas and South Florida.

After rising cases has come the new surge of deaths.

One idea I plan to discuss with a doctor is to get booster shots of one or more of the attenuated live virus vaccines. They seem to prime the immune system against all comers.

That is why I referred to my crap detector.
 
Like I mentioned in another thread somewhere, I have been taking C, D and zinc for many years as an anti Corona virus aka common cold virus preventative or mitagator.  Never heard of the Quercetin or Ivermectin before now.  I will read the link but I am very cautious about what I will add to my existing daily regime.

When I was hospitalized back in the beginning, March 15 for possible CV 19, those 3 items were provided to me in my regular doses by my own insistence that are on record from my oncology treatment med list.

I'm 68, with Stage IV cancer, emphysema and chronic bronchitis for openers.  I am also a recognized essential healthcare worker by profession.  But liquor store clerks are also recognized as essential workers, so big deal.  I get about as close to someone's face as possible short of kissing them and touch their faces and heads and their generally filthy glasses straight off of their faces.  Many are perfect strangers to me.  I doubt that anyone else here other than SteelyD gets closer to people than me.

I have to work as being on disability the last 10 earning years for social security pretty much screwed any chance of completely retiring on it.  I must work until I die.  Or someone else dies and leaves me $100 k.  I say this as a fact.  Not looking for any sympathy or even understanding for that matter.  It is just a fact of my life.  So I am putting my life and mouth where my money is.  I'm gonna die from something beyond my control sooner or later.

The only thing I can look forward to is one of the vaccines that were never supposed to be ready before the end of the year based on what all the scientists said and get one.  Being in the risk and professional categories that I am, the wife and I should get first crack at one of them.  But even if I do get one, the ordinary flu can still kill me just as easily.

I do not have the luxury of fear.  I must get up, get out of bed and go to work, regardless, as long as the doors are not closed by some public health dictate.  Same realization as growing up during the Cold War and all of the 'duck and cover" drills.  You can't hide yourself away from something that may never happen or is beyond your control.

There are no
guarantees in life.  And that is how I was raised and that is how I live and will eventually die.  I will die walking the talk.

I'm not trying to prove anything or anybody right or anybody wrong.  I just do not have a choice in this.  Which actually makes this easier to do.

To each their own and good luck.

Too old to party like there is no tomorrow (and consequences).  Young enough to still have good immunity.   

In other words, "old" but not too old.  
That's me, 60 - 69. Not too old, yes, but I don't think the difference is good immunity. It's more about being able to take care of ourselves. So, no exposure to caregivers, or offspring who must help with things only family can do, and no job anymore (especially in France, I think). We have the option not to party at all.

Things were fine in July, but the 20-29 year olds starting relaxing.

Over time, they contaminated older generations until infection rates were high for all.

This winter, fight covid-19 with humidity

Pasted:

One problem: In dry air, there is less mucous, and the cilia don’t beat as fast or in the right direction, as new research shows. This means fewer virus particles are captured or cleared out of the respiratory tract, thus allowing more of them to reach the deepest part of our lungs, where they do the most damage.

Second, a new study shows that the coronavirus decays faster at close to 60 percent relative humidity than at other levels. While this study has not yet been peer-reviewed, there is a trove of work showing that other viruses also decay faster in the range of 40 to 60 percent. We don’t exactly know why this is the case, but we might as well take advantage of the knowledge and avoid dry conditions.

Secret recordings reveal political directives, tension over Alberta's pandemic response

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, Health Minister Tyler Shandro and Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta's chief medical officer of health, have been the main faces of the province's COVID-19 response. (Sam Martin/CBC, Art Raham/CBC, Jason Franson/The Canadian Press)



Apparently the United Conservative party leader  and premier of Alberta Barking Mad Dog Kenney has been micro-managing the response to the pandemic.  Jason Kenney has constantly required 'evidence' before adopting restrictions.   

Poor man.  Must have difficulty managing in a context of uncertainty.  Very tough.  First you "follow the people" in order to be elected and then, weird as it sounds, some people expect you to "show leadership" when it was precisely your lack of leadership that got you elected in the first place.

The results speak for themselves.

      Ooops, I'm afraid you might be amiss in your thinking. The higher the cycling of rna samples being run in a test, the higher any positive outcome. Meaning: Some say, 25 would be a reasonable and more realistic way of recycling the rna strands. Remember, the more re-cycling of rna, the higher the rate of false positive outcomes.
