    • “I felt like the White House had gotten somewhat complacent through the campaign season,” said Deborah Birx, who President Donald Trump chose in March 2020 to steer his government’s virus response, according to interview excerpts released by the House select subcommittee on the pandemic.

      Birx, who sat for interviews with the subcommittee on Oct. 12 and 13, also detailed advice that she said the White House ignored late last year, including more aggressively testing younger Americans, expanding access to virus treatments and better distributing vaccine doses in long-term care facilities.

      More than 130,000 American lives could have been saved with swifter action and better coordinated public health messages after the virus’s first wave, Birx told investigators.

      “I believe if we had fully implemented the mask mandates, the reduction in indoor dining, the getting friends and family to understand the risk of gathering in private homes, and we had increased testing, that we probably could have decreased fatalities into the 30-percent-less to 40-percent-less range,” Birx said.

        FWIW, Mrs BamBam (Karen) and I got our Moderna boosters yesterday - our 3rd shot. Her arm is a little sore but otherwise OK. I actually had a little reaction to this one - none on the first two - I got really tired last night very early and had a headache, but feel fine today.
        My niece played a girl who died from typhoid in the PBS show on Typhoid Mary...very sad...and she didn't even get a screen credit! So consider yourself lucky.

        • I asked Super Granddaughter Karen what she thought about the Karen thing. Her response was a silent middle finger.

                Global Epidemic figures from yesterday say Minnesota's average new cases for last 7 days (10/19-10/25) is 2139 daily. That's 37.9 per 100K population, which places them #10 (highest). Hardly doing "quite well."

                  I repeat: She's ill, do the right thing and do as she asks, rather than pander to one's ego. I saw an 80+ woman in the gym today with a trainer who was 30+, neither wore a mask, and their faces were 2-3 feet apart as they talked. That's wrong in my book. Even if both were vaccinated.

                      The only stupid thing is not being vaccinated....

                      Getting vaccinated protects against severe illness from COVID-19, including the Delta variant...

                      • Oregon is mask central and has lots of cases and hospitalizations because a lot of people are too stupid to get vaccinated.

                          I agree. Whenever I'm around my parents I keep some distance and if I do have to get in their faces for whatever reason I put on a mask.

                            Which U.S. state has the lowest COVID-19 rate right now?

                            It’s not California, home of America’s strictest mask and vaccine requirements. Nor is it Vermont, even though 71 percent of residents there have been fully inoculated — the most in the country.

                            No, the state with the fewest daily COVID cases per capita is the same one that recently had more than any other: Florida.

                              On a per capita basis, Florida is ninth in the country in cumulative deaths — 10 percent higher than the US average.

                                My experience traveling through Oregon last August was that in the more rural parts of the state, the mask laws are more like suggestions.
