The reason “why” is suspicious. Shouldn’t it say that we want to stop the spread and keep people healthy?
And how does it help Alpine County to reopen if they allow anyone from anywhere to come be tested? Do the results reflect Alpine or their county of residence?

    Alpine is the least populated county in Ca. At 2 people per square mile it is safe to say you can social distance

The Netherlands has decided not to mandate the wearing of face masks in public, citing the fact that there is no scientific evidence to suggest they are effective against the spread of the coronavirus.

“From a medical perspective there is no proven effectiveness of masks, the Cabinet has decided that there will be no national obligation for wearing non-medical masks” announced Netherlands Minister for Medical Care Tamara van Ark.

The country’s National Institute for Health (RIVM) noted that it is aware of studies from other countries that purport to show masks slow the spread of disease, but will not be heeding them.

Indeed, RIVM chief Jaap van Dissel warned that wearing masks incorrectly, in addition to the effect masks have of eroding the perceived need for social distancing, could increase the risk of transmission because of a “false sense of security”.

“So we think that if you’re going to use masks (in a public setting) … then you must give good training for it,” he said.

Within the past week in the Netherlands, around 1400 new COVID-19 cases were reported, which equates to 342 more than the week before.

In Sweden, meanwhile, senior epidemiologist Anders Tegnell declared that there is “no point” in wearing masks in public.

“We see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport,” Tegnell said.

Sweden, which has not even instituted a lock down at any time, appears to be seeing a downward trend in cases.

At the beginning of this week, Sweden announced just 398 new cases, down from 767 the week before and 2,530 one month ago.

“The curves go down, and the curves over the seriously ill begin to be very close to zero. As a whole, it is very positive,” Tegnell asserted.

      Oh, the Young (and Old) Republicans are not going to like this at all. Speaking of which, what has become of Jared's nationwide testing program? Poof into thin air, just like most of Trump's promises.

GOP firebrand Herman Cain died on Thursday, with his death attributed to ‘Covid-19,’ but the news prompted some to question if a ventilator – or simply too much oxygen – played a role in his death.

The use of ventilators for treating Covid-19 became controversial after a study showed that nearly 90% of patients placed on ventilators died in New York’s health system, according to the Washington Examiner.

“The results of a study from the Journal of the American Medical Association released Wednesday showed most hospital patients with the coronavirus died in Northwell Health after being placed on a ventilator,” the outlet reported. “The report examined health records of 5,700 patients with the novel coronavirus hospitalized, and 2,634 of those have either recovered enough to be discharged or have died.”

“Twelve percent of these 2,634 patients were placed on a ventilator, a device that forces air into the lungs of patients who cannot independently breath, and 88.1% died.”

Also, the biotech news outlet STAT reported that some doctors believe ventilators were being overused to treat Covid-19:

In patients who are on ventilators due to non-Covid-19 pneumonia or acute respiratory distress, a blood oxygen level in the 80s can mean impending death, with no room to give noninvasive breathing support more time to work. Physicians are using their experience with ventilators in those situations to guide their care for Covid-19 patients. The problem, critical care physician Cameron Kyle-Sidell told Medscape this week, is that because U.S. physicians had never seen Covid-19 before February, they are basing clinical decisions on conditions that may not be good guides.

In other words, because Covid-19 hadn’t been encountered in the US previously, it’s hard to judge how to treat the virus by using a patient’s oxygen levels:

What’s driving this reassessment is a baffling observation about Covid-19: Many patients have blood oxygen levels so low they should be dead. But they’re not gasping for air, their hearts aren’t racing, and their brains show no signs of blinking off from lack of oxygen.

That is making critical care physicians suspect that blood levels of oxygen, which for decades have driven decisions about breathing support for patients with pneumonia and acute respiratory distress, might be misleading them about how to care for those with Covid-19. In particular, more and more are concerned about the use of intubation and mechanical ventilators.

Cain was a cancer survivor after having one-third of his colon and 70% of his liver removed.

    Cain was probably infected on purpose by a democrat, that's the way they operate. Just like 60-year-old Bernell Trammell, who in front of his Milwaukee store, was gunned down by a cowardly Democrat. Mr Trammell told friends he was going to be killed by a democrat supporter because he was urging his fellow black community friends and members to stand by him and not to support the lying, racist democrats.

      Cain likely picked up the virus at the Trump rally in Oklahoma. Your conspiracy theories are a hoot.

Took me about 15 minutes to make an appointment for both my husband and I. Since we live in Dorrington, much better than heading for the fairgrounds or another city. You'll need a Google account (or create one) to schedule.
