    Houston hospitals stop reporting COVID-19-related data after reaching base ICU capacity: report

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/houston-hospitals-stop-reporting-covid-19-related-data-after-reaching-base-icu-capacity-report/ar-BB1656hh


    Data released by a major Houston hospital system no longer includes information about the hospital system's ICU capacity
    , a change reportedly made just a day after it previously was updated to show the hospitals reaching 100 percent base capacity due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

    Charts updated daily by the Texas Medical Center, a hospital system with locations in downtown Houston, contained a warning as of Sunday that an "upward trajectory of new daily cases" was continuing, and indicated that the surge in patients to the ICU "supports future ICU resource planning." However, no indications of when the hospital system would reach capacity were available.

    "Currently TMC institutions are able to serve all patients requiring intensive care," the documents read, alongside a note indicating a 5-percent average growth of coronavirus patients requiring admittance to the ICU. No other information on when the TMC would reach ICU capacity was publicly available.

    The Houston Chronicle reported that the data was altered to exclude this information after Saturday's update indicated that Houston ICUs would reach "unsustainable surge capacity" by July 6.

    The Chronicle also reported that the change occurred after a conversation "between Gov. Greg Abbott [R] and hospital executives in which the governor expressed displeasure with negative headlines about ICU capacity."

    Seems we have our answer, but there's no way Abbott will hide this. Once the ICU's are full, sick people are going to be turned away, and that'll spread through the news.

    Putting your head in the sand and crossing your fingers is easier in the short term than actively planning . Spending resources that after the fact it appears you could have avoided makes many nervous.

    ‘Feeling Like Death’: Inside a Houston Hospital Bracing for a Virus Peak

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/f...hospital-bracing-for-a-virus-peak/ar-BB165VEx

    HOUSTON — Melissa Estrada had tried to be so careful about the coronavirus. For months she kept her three children at home, and she always wore a mask at the grocery store. She and her daughter even stitched face coverings for relatives and friends.

    But over the weekend Ms. Estrada, 37, was fighting the virus at Houston Methodist Hospital after a week of treatments that included an experimental drug, steroids, intensive care and high doses of oxygen.

    She probably contracted the virus while attending a dinner with relatives who had also been cautious, she said. Within days, all four adults and several children who had been at the gathering tested positive for the coronavirus.

    “It was really, really scary,” Ms. Estrada said of her illness. She worried constantly about leaving her children motherless. “You hear about it and you think it’s the older people or the people with underlying issues,” she said. “And I’m healthy. I don’t understand how I got this bad.”

    I think Arizona stopped reported new cases or are holding back on their data. They're only reporting +625 New Cases for Today.

    The website WorldOMeter was using for data is taken from here: https://www.azdhs.gov/preparedness/...se-epidemiology/covid-19/dashboards/index.php

    They had the following numbers from last Monday leading up to today. What number does NOT follow the trend?:
    +2,196
    +3,593
    +1,795
    +3,056
    +3,428
    +3,593
    +3,857
    +625

    Testing is down to 17.6K.

    Unfortunately, New cases are still at high levels with +737. Today's figures would put the state it at 4.2% positivity rate for the days new tests. Cuyahoga County had +123 new cases today.

    So this is still their worst moments ever. If the new cases don't drop, I fear the numbers will drastically increase leading up to the upcoming Fourth of July Holiday week and be the start of a new surge.

    Here is the trends which is using reported date and not arbitrary and incorrectly identified user reported onset date. This graphic is resized by ~ 75% and taken from the State's Current Trends page: https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/dashboards/current-trends

    https://www.azcentral.com/story/new...-number-hospitalizations-reported/3278375001/

    Hospitalizations and patients in the ICU continued to rise, according to statistics released on Monday by the Arizona Department of Health Services, but a delay in the reporting of a lab left it unclear how many new cases the state will report.

    The department tweeted on Monday morning that the new case number is low — just 625 new cases, compared with 1,000 to 3,000 new cases typically reported since the beginning of June — because one of the labs did not submit its information in time. The new cases will be added to Tuesday morning's update, the department wrote. A record 3,858 new cases was reported on Sunday.

    Sonora Quest, a major test processor, said Monday it had a technical glitch reporting numbers on Sunday due to an increased number of test results. The lab reported 2,454 additional cases, which would bring the state's Monday total to 3,079. Those cases will be added to the state's data dashboard on Tuesday morning.

    This thread is always a reality check for me. When I go out I see people just doing stuff like it's any other day with no masks/social distancing unless they're employees somewhere in which case they wear them, but usually under their noses so they can breath easier.

    Don't get me wrong, a lot of people DO where masks like me and my family...but we're definitely in the minority and I've gotten more than a few dirty looks just for wearing it. (I don't get dirty looks ever so it must be the mask, I got one of them friendly faces. :p )

    I see stores filled, restaurants filled, firework stores and stands EVERYWHERE filled with a blissful ignorance that anything is amiss or not normal when they should all be bloody panicking about their health at least a LITTLE I should hope! But nope, they look at us like we're the crazy people for believing in that libtard "science" stuff and just sort of laugh at us or look down on us.

    Strange feeling for me, not used to it. Don't care what people think I'm gonna try and do whatever I can to keep my family and everyone I care about as safe as possible, I just wish they'd all help just a little bit. :(

    Data as of 6/29/2020 @2:50 PM:

    Total Tests: 2,061,939 (Up +55,215)

    Total Viral Tests: 1,819,189 (Up +43,970)

    Only 88.2% of Total Tests are Viral Tests the other 11.8% of tests are the useless
    Antibody Tests

    Cases Reported: 153,011 (Up +4,283)


    Fatalities: 2,403 (Up +10)

    Texas tests per 1M population are 71,111 (Up +1,904) which places Texas as the 10th worst State. No change from yesterday.

    Click this link: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us and on the page click the Tests / 1M pop column twice to sort from worst to first

    They are using roughly 28.996 million as the population of Texas.

    Texas is mixing Viral and Antibody Tests in the total test numbers which is very bad as Antibody Tests are useless in determining if someone has the Coronavirus.

    As of today the real number of Total Viral Tests for Texas is 1,819,189 which works out to be 62,739 per 1M population so Texas is really the 6th worst state in testing

    More infected.

    The positivity rate in southern Florida is over 27%. Normal for this pandemic was 5%. Other regions are seeing over 11% positive rates.

    You also have to remember that there can be weeks to even months between hospitalizations and deaths or even recovery. So what we're seeing now on deaths can likely be the results from infections in April and May.

    IIRC, most people that die from covid on average takes 18.5 days.

    It will be a while for it to catch up. But if your ICU is already at 100% capacity, I guess there are signs of this already in effect.

    Also there's a higher incidence in the young in these numbers who are socialising more. When the disease starts spreading from these to older folk and those with underlying conditions, the death toll will increase.

    I expect the end result will basically be the ditching of relationships with the older generation who'll just be expected to fend for themselves hunkered down in their homes until either herd immunity is reached or a vaccine is made. That way it'll be their fault for dying as they didn't stay safe which is their responsibility, and society can keep a clear conscience.

    Las Vegas casino workers sue operators, citing coronavirus concerns
    The powerful Nevada union that represents more than 60,000 casino workers in the Las Vegas area sued several of the city’s casino operators on Monday, accusing them of failing to properly protect employees from the coronavirus pandemic.

    Culinary Union secretary-treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline told the Associated Press the union’s members, who include housekeepers, cooks and bartenders, “want to work, but they want to work safe.”

    “We’re going to do whatever we need to do to protect these workers, these families and this community,” she added, according to the AP.

    The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas, accuses several resorts and properties of running for nearly three weeks before mandating face masks and seeks a court order forcing tighter safety measures under the federal collective bargaining statute, the news service reported. Defendants include a Harrah’s Las Vegas restaurant, the Signature Condominium towers at the MGM Grand resort and the Bellagio casino.

    The lawsuit claims the defendants required their own employees to wear masks during the same period, indicating they “recognized the critical importance of mask-wearing,” but that in spite of “overwhelming evidence of the importance of mandating facial coverings by guests in public areas of casinos and hotels … defendants, along with other casinos and hotels in southern Nevada only ‘encouraged’ guests to wear face masks.”

    Heh, California used to have nice graphs showing the number of people with corona in ICUs and the growth per day ... and it's gone.
