Maybe where you live, but in many major cities they most certainly did. Heck, many of the hospitals in MS were overrun at our peak. They were having to convert rooms from different units just to meet demand. And when that happens, the ER ends up turning away someone with a broken foot because they don’t have the space and they don’t have a life-threatening disease.

I hope cases go back down and we don’t have to worry about it, but science says it probably won’t happen. Not yet, at least.


Got a link for a ER turning someone with a broken foot away?

Can you show me on the graph from state docs on covid hospitalizations where there were less hospital beds than people with covid?

RE: Completion of the Season
I’m not sure what you are trying to prove with state-wide data yg. Hospitalization problems occur at the community level not necessarily from a whole state perspective. You could have overwhelmed hospitals in say Jackson and Gulfport while every other hospital is at 50% or below making it appear on a chart that there were no problems in a state. A broad look at a state data doesn’t tell you anything about where transmission is highest and how those communities are dealing with it much less the impact to a specific locales hospital operations.

Furthermore, this attempt to use total hospital beds to determine impact is a manipulation. All hospital beds include those for maternity, post surgical, children, cardiac, etc, etc.

You’re not going to be able use a lot of these rooms for COVID patients because the last thing you want is a staff taking care of a COVID patient rolling over next to the guy that just had a heart attack and is recovering. This myopic look at hospital beds I have noticed appears to be nothing more than attempt by some who sit on that side of it to downplay the severity of it.

Every Marshall player, coach, and AD employee gets tested 3 times a week. You never see the coaches without masks and distancing, and the players have sacrificed a lot of social interaction with anyone but teammates. We haven’t had a positive test in weeks.

Apparently some teams aren’t as diligent.

So you’re not banking on Herd immunity?

RE: Completion of the Season
Here in Texas the most recent state mandated rules require local hospitals to show Covid hospitalizations above 15%% of total beds before cities can re-impose certain restrictions. This is a change from using just the raw numbers of new cases per day as the metric for restrictions. And it probably makes more sense. Although I’m not sure where the 15% number came from.
Locally, we are seeing a steady march higher in daily new cases. Now at record levels. Total Covid beds used are well below the 15% level. However, ICU bed usage and number of ventilators in use are just about maxed out.
It’s going to get worse.
The newest worry is staffing. Health care workers are, themselves, getting sick and testing positive. Not necessarily being hospitalized, but having to quarantine for several days and it’s putting a lot of pressure on the remaining staff to keep the hospital covered.

I don't think the daily cases will decline for quite some time (until widespread vaccinations / herd immunity). The main things are hospitalizations and deaths. Average daily deaths are actually down in October.

Herd immunity is unlikely as it seems we can actually get COVID multiple times. Production of COVID antibodies in our bodies slows down and, pretty much, stops within three months of recovering from COVID.

Two freaking people in the whole world has tested positive, twice. So its rarer than a person under 21 dying from Covid. That's pretty damn rare


Many more than that. Still relatively few but you’re a month or two back on your news feed if you’re going with 2.

mturn burned 3 5G towers down already this weekend (while wearing my mask of course). I’m doing my part.
