I suspect the hospital is holding on to more patients than they would have previously after Shenique Miller's sister was discharged wheezing and weak, only to die a day later. Cant know for cetain, but I suspect something "rightly" changed with their protocol. All of this information would give us better grounds to compare numbers and a clearer picture of our status, are we doing better or worse? We dont know if the average stay of these patients is the same, longer or shorter, or of their conditions are more or less severe compared to previous waves. But after two years of asking its clear all we're going to get is case counts to freak out by. The one stat that doesnt lie is the death count and to that extent the situation is magnitudes of degrees better... so far

The only insights we can extract from this data, lots of people arent at work. I wonder where the concentration of disabled list workers sits? Hotels? hospitals? Foodstores? That too would tell us what needs to be adjusted. Are the hospitalizations in-hospital spread or new admissions?

This piece posted earlier clears up some mess and deliberate data misuse to invent some new space for our brains emotions and soul to be in. But hey?

Germany Health officials are questioning the quality of test results probably making false positives.

There may be some lesson here for us also.

The points after two year going on three years are, the test do not work the way we would want them to, the protocols dont work the way we.would like them to, the data doesnt work the way we would like it to; so the best way to handle this is to keep your distance, cover your face, and if possible take your vaccine. Even doing those four things are not conclusive, but it is all we have . We may all get the virus, but it is what it is.All the German Australian,French ETC questioning this and that is neither here or there. We have beeñ listening and reading the articles for two years now and the next week each country breaks out. No one , including me, has the answer.

Looks like Israel is canceling the much vaunted Green Pass for vaccinated persons only - entry. 40% of new infections are among the fully vaccinated and fully revaccinated called booster 4 or 5.

Only 64% of Israelies are fully vaccinated. They have done a good PR job of talking the vaccinations up but the strict Orthordox Jews are very anti vax.

Still that means that the 36% unvaxed are responible for 60% of the cases.

Yea but. But the travel by plane is foe vaccinated only. The contagion named omicron came by air. And who flies by air only the vaccinated with Cruiseship passengers in the mix also.
