RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

CDC MMWR Risk for Newly Diagnosed Diabetes >30 Days After SARS-CoV-2 Infection Among Persons Aged <18 Years — United States, March 1, 2020–June 28, 2021 Sorry, didn't realize the CDC was going to release this in their weekly MMWR report dated tomorrow. Thank you, Dr Doug! ;-)

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

An asymptomatic viral infection is still a viral infection which weakens the body, causes physiological changes the patient doesn't recognize (no outward symptoms), and likely makes one more susceptible to issues from underlying conditions. This ^^^^^ I had a dear friend and neighbor who was a diabetic, but very good at controlling her blood sugar. A loveable older woman who was very active and sharp as a tack. When we got home from Michigan in 2020, I found out she had died from "organ failure due to hyperglycemia of 800 mg" She was treated at a small local hospital - I have no idea if they ran a Covid test, but I know she had been helping a "sick neighbor" just before she had been found in a coma...... I'm no Doctor, but I can't help wondering if Covid had affected her sugar levels, resulting in her ultimate death... there's no way this lady's blood sugar could have gone this high, IMO

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

With an exceptionally high number like that, I expect almost every living human on Earth regardless of vaccination status will contract Omicron in very short order (maybe by mid February?), including fully-boosted "us"; even using our NIOSH US-manufactured N95 masks, every time we enter an enclosed public (or, private) space not our own condo. Anyone? As I watch the number of new cases rise like a rocket, the infection rate at 33+% - I figure it's just a matter of time before it gets us, shots, masks and Social distancing and all. Florida's New Daily Case Rate is almost 300 per 100k population; and I know in my heart that number is really low, because the testing lines are so long that people aren't getting tested/reported. They are just hunkering down at home.....

I will add that Mark's valuable insight into all things "canine" has been a tremendous help to those with questions while RVing and far from their Vet :-)

RE: Finishing a Wood Ceiling

Our entire house has a knotty pine T&G ceiling. Fortunately, our builder recommended that we do something with it while it was still in bunks (2500 linear feet) and this was back when whitewashed finishes were very popular, so we called all the kids (then teenagers) and we stained every stinking board. After the ceiling was put up, I got a roller and applied a water-based poly finish (Minwax Polycrylic). That was back in 1996 - it still looks good with no yellowing, today. You want *something* over the wood to slow moisture absorption, because the boards do "breathe".

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

My father’s angiogram (and either placement of a stint or scheduling of bypass) was rescheduled and my parents expect it will get pushed again. Meanwhile the nurse who called to reschedule reviewed with my mother the signs of a heart attack. My father gets exhausted going to get the mail from the box. . This is the part that makes me mad about those who take Covid too lightly to bother with vaccination or precautions - and then come down with it and tie up hospital beds that are needed desperately for other medical issues. One of our local (large) hospital systems just announced that all surgeries that would require an overnight stay, are being canceled. Will say a prayer for your Dad (((hug)))

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

I think here in FL, it might be a case of people deciding to "ride out" whatever illness they are experiencing, because the waiting lines for Covid testing are hours-long. Of course, a certain amount of those choosing to tough it out, get sicker; and then head to the ER. There's good news as of today (I hope!) - the overall new case numbers for FL Covid took a teeeeeny dip. It's still more than double the previous peak for Delta - but hopefully the state has reached a burnout stage... at least until the Spring Breakers start showing up or the next variant-of-concern shows up.

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Dr Scott Gottlieb has implied the same fast-burnout scenario, too Clicky And on edit - this can't happen fast enough. The Covid numbers are insane in FL right now and testing lines are hours-long. Makes me wonder how many people simply aren't getting tested and tough it out at home with rest and Tylenol?

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Never mind I found Cepheid, Abbott & ThermoFisher have low volume (1 sample at a time) molecular tests (tests for specific pieces of RNA) that provide results in 13-36min. OK - that made me burst out laughing - people are sitting in lines of cars for many, many hours to get tested in Orlando. One-sample-at-a-time isn't going to be much help right now ;-)

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

The PCR tests aren't quick result. The way the tests are run require "amplification" of the genetic material that is on the swab. This takes time. The antigen tests are the quick result tests and just test for a section of the virus in question. The FDA reported that the antigen tests have reduced sensitivity to the omicron variant - more false negatives. FDA Thank you for that clarification - that's what I thought originally - so my ears had pricked up when the news people called it a "Fast PCR". Certainly explains these cruise ships coming back to port with a bunch of covid-sufferers.

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

So finally, the numbers for the State of Florida are finally closer to the stuff the county health department is reporting - which implies that Omicron is creating the highest peak in new-case numbers yet recorded (Brevard supposedly is at 199 new cases per day per 100k population - that's incredibly-high). And yet the New Year's celebrations go on, and all the football games, cruise ships are sailing, etc. The news (NBC I think?) said yesterday that the quick-result PCR tests are not picking up on Omicron? My guess is that by the time someone goes for testing, the virus is already waning? So it's hardly a surprise by how fast this variant is spreading....

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

There are SOOOOO many people walking around thinking they are still protected because they are recovered from a previous case of Covid :-( Omicron is really going to enjoy holiday gatherings....

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

I’m not sure which is more disconcerting, lagging data for Fla or no data for MD (due to a computer failure at md health dept). I see MD has some seriously-rocketing rates right now (on covidactnow) :-( Maybe their computer burst into flames because it couldn't handle all the numbers ;-)

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Thanks, Mark and Dr Doug, for your ever-valuable insight! As a side note: I have used the covidactnow.org website to check the rate of new covid cases, simply because using the same source helps see the trends up or down. But since Omicron showed on the scene - there is a HUGE disparity in the numbers for Brevard County, FL as it comes from the County health department (new cases more than doubled in a week, posted on a local social media page today) and covidactnow says "steady". I'm assuming the reporting flows from county health departments, up to the state level; and then goes on to the CDC? In a state that depends heavily on tourism - I think I know where the numbers get skewed.....

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Both guys were triple-vaxxed; Cramer had tested negative shortly before a gathering that both men had attended that required PCR tests; and the next day realized he had Covid and tested positive and that Carl had been infected (and apparently Cramer's wife, too) I wonder if they quarantined after taking their tests or did they continue their normal routines and have a potential exposure after taking their tests. Cramer's rant was basically (and I question that he actually did a PCR test? Don't those take a few days?) Cramer: "I took a Covid PCR test and it read negative - and then 3 hours later I attended a gathering (party?) where I infected Carl Quintanilla" Given that they are celebrities - heaven only knows how many people they interact with in the course of a day. I suspect the answer is "a lot"

RE: 2019–2022 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

For those like my husband who love to watch CNBC - this morning, Jim Cramer (one of the anchors) was on a rant: it seems that he managed to infect co-anchor Carl Quintanilla with Covid. Both guys were triple-vaxxed; Cramer had tested negative shortly before a gathering that both men had attended that required PCR tests; and the next day realized he had Covid and tested positive and that Carl had been infected (and apparently Cramer's wife, too) Basically Cramer's rant was that "nobody knows what's going on" (regarding how fast Omicron spreads) and that testing can't be trusted. And he was pretty much astounded by how fast Omicron spreads. Both men were grateful for their vaccinations and warned that those who are unvaccinated are taking huge risks. The good news is that both guys are working/broadcasting from their homes, and say that a couple of Tylenol alleviated the discomfort they felt.

RE: Ever Notice?

IDK if pockets were normal during that time period or not. I have read that making left and right shoos is a fairly new invention. Prior to that you just slipped them on regardless of which foot. I appreciate everyone's comments. I was afraid I was the only one who enjoys noticing unusual little trivia. In older movies (back when shift levers were "on the tree") Ed always points out that the car being "driven" down the road, actually is in "park".....LOL!
