I was just driving home from Hooters. Two things struck me while there. They are having a hard time recruiting talent, and who the hell orders Hooters to go? I mean even with the lower level of talent, it's still Hooters. While I was driving home, the governor was having a COVID press brief. Our governor is a democrat, but I have to applaud him for keeping these briefs absolutely non-political.

He had a doctor come on and give some numbers.

LA is short 6000 nurses.

Tomorrow, hospitalizations will be at an all time high since the pandemic began.

The average age of the person who dies from Covid has dropped from 75 to 65.

Fatalities among people under 40 years of age has gone up nearly 500%

Fully vaccinated people are 25 times less likely to be hospitalized and 25 times less likely to die from COVID.

Vaccinated people are 8 times less likely to contract COVID.

He was still talking when I got home, but I had an order from Natchez Shooters Supply on the porch and wanted to open it, to see what I'd have to return for being defective.

The China flu came through the fishing fleet in Grand isle and Leeville at the end of June, beginning of July. It's gone now and nobody is worried about Covid-19 anymore. Even the 2 dopers with really bad COPD somehow miraculously survived. Just look around and think for a minute....how many people do I personally know that have died because of Covid-19 and not some other underlying health condition.

How do you know his delivery was not political? Because he did not say Republican? LOL Every time a politician speaks it is political. Every time. Whatever he says is modulated to retain power.

Instead of just percentage increases, I'd prefer to see the actual case number increases as well. Going from 1 death to 5 deaths is a 400% increase, but still not a huge number of actual case deaths.

I knew when I typed that someone would take issue with it and try not to understand. I figured others would understand in the broader scheme of things. It's okay that you are in the former camp.

Well, as long as it was a Dr. giving numbers.

Yep. Show me the raw data. Let me make my own judgement. Spent 3 years working for a PhD Statistician. His favorite saying was "Figures don't lie. But, liars figure."

This coming from one of the original "Ivory Towers" of corporate America.

One thing the doctor said that can't really be supported with data is that where mask mandates have been put into place, infection rates have dropped, so the mask mandates are working. To my knowledge there was never just a mask mandate. There were always other measures in place with the mask mandates. Further, I suspect when masks are being worn, people are much more aware of other transmission risks and are mitigating those either wittingly or unwittingly.

These charts are interesting and can help shed some light on some of the questions. I wouldn't draw any conclusions on the latest data just yet, but if the trend continues, in a week or so I think we'll be able to make a fairly definitive statement about the death rate from the Delta variant.

Touching your fingers to your face/nose/mouth is a common way for disease to spread. The mask is both a physical barrier and a reminder. While I might normally walk right up to a bud and shake his hand (both behavioral risks,) my mask and his mask might serve as conscious or an unconscious reminder not to do that. When I worked in an office complex where masks were required, they were not required in my own office space. When I reentered my office space and peeled my mask off, that was my reminder to use hand sanitizer.

I hope they remain relatively well, recover quickly and have no lingering effects.

I'm amazed that anybody can believe anything that a member of the democratic party says. They closed the Canadian border but leave the southern border open and allow unvaccinated illegals to come in then ship them all over the country. Yet they tell me I need to wear a mask . Every time Faucci opens his month lies come out. Along with the CDC and WHO. Yet people still believe all the BS they say.

If you'll note, my post was almost entirely about what the doctor said. I have no idea what his political affiliation is.

EVERY vaxed member of my family in LA is sick right now, NONE of the others are. NEW Orleans, old Metairie , Kenner, Luling, Houma, Morgan City, and Baton Rouge.

Its a butt load of them too.

Paul, I have a church function down there later this month and I’m staying at the Navy base. If they close churches again I’m canceling.
