  • Floridians age 60 and over are the most vaccinated age group in the state — and they’re still the most vulnerable age group.

    There's still too many unvaccinated.

      i think this is inevitable. Older people have more comorbidities. They also don't gain as much from being vaccinated, as they are finding out in Israel, that's why they're extra dosing the elderly,

        You can almost see this group being in COVID trouble. Shame a kid has to lose dad.

          This might have something to do with the empty seats at the meet.

          With all of Lane County's intensive care unit beds full, public health officials are making new recommendations for individuals and businesses as the pandemic again intensifies.

          Lane County Public Health has issued new recommendations for individuals and businesses meant to reduce the continuing spread of COVID-19.

          The recommendations focus on encouraging masking and vaccinations, but call on public venues to "consider requiring proof of vaccination for entry." Recommendations were released Saturday, one day after the University of Oregon and Oregon State University announced upcoming events will require proof of vaccination starting Monday.

          There have been more than 100 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Lane County hospitals since Wednesday, said Lane County Public Health spokesman Jason Davis.

          "All 62 staffed ICU beds have been full for the past 48 hours with nearly half of these individuals being COVID-19 patients," according to a LCPH news release. "While Lane County hospitals serve as a medical hub for several counties, the percentage of hospitalizations from Lane County is growing and now represents 75% of (local) hospitalizations."

                  NZ Prime Minister attacked by right wing British media journo, Martin Lesh, for her approach to covid-19.

                  A pathetic Pom is what this Martin Lesh is.

                  This pompous idiot says that New Zealand's approach of eliminating the virus was a costly strategy with limited benefit and has had frightening consequences.

                  So true, so true. So, just what are those frightening consequences compared to the glory of the covid-19 strategies of Pommie land.

                  I agree that it must be truly frightening to this pommie nitwit that New Zealand’s costly covid-19 infection rate is 170 times less than the UK rate; and our covid-19 death rate is 385 times less than the UK.

                  And it must be truly frightening compared to the brilliance of the UK that in the past 14 days we have had frightening zero deaths compared to the benefits of the UK’s 1,310 deaths, and counting. Good business for undertakers I guess. And it sure as hell is great at ensuring the UK hospitals are working like hell and getting all that experience at trying to save lives.

                  I think I am happy to be part of the disastrous and frightening New Zealand situation, rather than the wonderful and advantageous UK situation..

                          • COVID-19 is pushing Tampa Bay ambulance service to its limits and beyond

                            Extra shifts. Constant 911 calls. Hours-long waits at the hospital. It’s a tough time for emergency medical systems in Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.

                              Why we’re happy hobbits in Jacinda’s ‘mysterious socialist hermit kingdom’

                              https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...hermit-kingdom

                              Physician, heal thyself. This phrase has been in my thoughts ever since global media outlets, most of them British, started mocking New Zealand’s Covid elimination strategy last week.

                              I’m a proud British passport holder, and spent some of my best years in London, but not once during this pandemic have I ever wished to be anywhere except New Zealand. That holds true even though we’re now back in lockdown while the British freely enjoy what passes for a summer there.



                              As Twitter users were quick to point out, it was indeed crazy of New Zealand to go into lockdown with just one case – no wait, 22 – hang on, 107 … You get the point. The fact that coronavirus case numbers can mount rapidly should be obvious by now, but apparently not.

                              Also apparently, some British columnists believe New Zealand has become “a mysterious socialist hermit kingdom”. But we’ve led infinitely freer lives over the past 18 months. On the Oxford Covid-19 Stringency Index, they’ve had – crudely speaking – 60% restricted lives for most of that time, while we have seldom been over 20%. We have lockdowns, but they’re generally short and sharp.

                              The lockdowns are also effective: we’ve had just 26 people die of Covid, a number which – and I cannot stress this enough – is very different from more than 130,000, the current UK death tally. Our per-person death rate is 400 times less than the British one.

                                I will post on my FB page

                                Yesterday we had an additional 43 positive case and 0 deaths. The UK had 30,838 cases and 174 deaths.

                                NZ was lucky in that our first covid-19 case was in March last year, and therefore we benefitted from learning from China, NY and Italy etc. However, after thst our strategy of a hard and fast lockdown has proved to be our saviour.
