We are peaking down here in FL the same time we did last summer, like you stated above We will start on the down trend in the next two weeks if we are not already.

Looking at the curves, I think s lot of states are just about there. Louisiana looks to be about to break over. Lot of states curves right now aren’t as steep as the last wave.

I also see the 7 day average of cases is around 100,000. Deaths are around 500 a day. The last time cases were at 100k per day, deaths were running 3000 a day. This surge is clearly different. It’s either the vaccines, or delta isn’t as deadly. Probably a combination of both.

I dunno, I don’t think so. I could be wrong. But it’s been 7 weeks since the cases started going up and we should have seen an increase in deaths. So far it hasn’t happened. But yea, let’s see what happens in 3 weeks. I think cases start to fall. 
Sorry Ieft out the sarcasm emoticon. In all seriousness though, I hope mortality stays relatively low

Isn't there like an infowars forum you could slither off to for your hot takes? My apologies that I pop into a weather forum and get annoyed when it's a covidiot convention instead.

Why get annoyed? Move on. Plenty of dew point discussion in the other threads.

What is it with people who lurk and barely ever contribute randomly popping in just to announce that they don't approve of what everyone else is posting and that the thread should be shut down before disappearing again for 2 months? 

Happens all the time in the MA subforum too. It's weird, man.

Many of us regulars too just gave up and joined the convo, ha.  Not necessarily content police but nostalgia for the old ways of the forum.  You checked in as a way to escape real life issues and talk weather with other weather fanatics, vs. coming to hear thoughts on society’s problems and maybe discuss weather on the side.  But there’d also be 6 hours at a time between posts in the summer.

I agree though if we are going to do COVID convo just let everyone in the pool at once and see who drowns :lol:.

I keep saying it... only 45 deaths from Delta under the age of 50 in the UK.

Missed all the lovely posts today.  :lol: 

Me and 2 other electrical sub contractors waited outside the local Capital Tristate (electrical supply) this morning at 630 am for it to open like we do many days and when the doors swung open the worker quickly said ( U NEED MASKS) to enter . I quickly said I guess Home Depot and Lowes  will get the business from me then ...call me when corporate changes back . The other 2 contractors weren't as civil lol. They cursed and said we aren't wearing no more effin masks . They also left Like I did . Americans are done  with this shit .I spend $35,000 to 45 K  there a year.  Enough small businesses like me push back on this Draconian BS it'll start to change their tune.

Capitol tristate isn't a small business buddy. Up and down the east coast . And as of today there's no mask mandate at Depot . I was there . If Depot requires it in the future  then I'll go to Lowes ...if they do then I'll refuse to comply and they'll have to arrest me . So be  it . Time for Americans to push back and sorry to disappoint you but many are . There's millions of peeps like me who usually keep to themselves ( very little if any news watching, social media or political talk) who spend there time working hard,  taking care of their families, help  there neighbors etc ...who are rising up to push back on mandates / restrictions. It's happening whether you agree or not .

Some of the ICU beds at smaller hospitals are used for Covid wards. They’re not necceserily sick enough for ICU level care. It’s not the norm, but it is prevalent here and there. 

Hospitals are filled in Arkansas and the people in the icu beds are mainly on ventilators. They’ve had to stop elective procedures(which makes them the money they need to stay afloat) and also are having to shop hundreds of miles away each time a cardiac emergency happens or a serious crash takes place. My aunt says her hospital system is on the verge of collapse and they are literally doing anything they can do to find resources and try to stay afloat. It’s a very bad situation.

They need a hospital ship, for sure.

Phin we get it, you’re waiting to get the shot. It’s fine, you live in the middle of nowhere in New England and have a very good job that allows you to work around certain situations, and I’m sure in person you’re an interesting and intelligent dude who I’d actually enjoy conversing with…but things are bad there. These people aren’t in a good situation and there’s no other way to put it.

Yep, been hearing that since March of 2020. Like I said, get the field hospital set up and pay the nurses more so they stay, if it's that much of an issue. But neither of those things will happen and the media will just suddenly stop talking about it. Just like last year.

You would think we would have seen at least one hospital go "over the brink" during this whole thing, but we don't because the field hospitals see like 2 people

I think he’s down in the mid-Atlantic a lot this time of year…. I can tell you living in the country in NNE right now you wouldn’t be able to be that concerned with COVID.  I think he knows if his life revolved around N.NH/BML he wouldn’t need to think about it. The rat race can be brutal in the suburbs.

Many hospitals closed wards and reduced staff during the very slow time in the spring, and now they are paying for that in some cases and having to scramble. During this entire pandemic, people have been trying to claim that business decisions made by the hospital administrations are strongly correlated to COVID spread and severity. Some hospitals are just grossly mismanaged and always have very long ER waits and wards bursting at capacity.

I do believe the extra hospitals were overkill, but my sister who is a pharmacist for patients in a NYC hospital has shown personal photos within the Mount Sinai hospital system where the lobby was filled with beds of patients being short of breath.  Not going to share her personal photos.

Discovery Channel has made a documentary called “The Surge at Mount Sinai.”  

It was one of the few spots that maxed out… of course being in NYC in the very beginning, people were curious what was wrong with them too.
