Masks Work? Bat Soup Virus Hospitalizations Rise In 36 States

Most of these states have mask mandates

Covid hospitalizations rising in 36 states as U.S. hits another record for average new cases

The average number of new daily cases of the coronavirus in the United States hit another record on Monday as 36 states reported worrying rises in the number of hospitalized patients.

The average number of patients hospitalized with Covid-19 over the past seven days rose by at least 5% in 36 states as of Monday, according to a CNBC analysis of data from the Covid Tracking Project. Hospitalizations lag behind cases as it takes time for people to get diagnosed and become sick enough to require medical attention. However, epidemiologists point to hospitalizations as a more telling indicator of the severity of an outbreak than new cases, which can fluctuate based on testing.

In Illinois, where Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced new business restrictions last week in four counties and Chicago, 2,638 people were hospitalized with Covid-19 as of Monday, according to data compiled by Covid Tracking Project, which tracks testing, hospitalization and other data on the outbreak. It’s run by journalists at The Atlantic. That pushed their seven-day average up over 2,480, a more than 24% increase compared with a week ago, according to CNBC’s analysis.

In Texas, El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego issued a curfew on Sunday to protect “overwhelmed and exhausted” hospitals and workers. More than 5,200 people there were in hospitals with Covid-19 on Monday, Covid Tracking Project’s data shows. The Lone Star state has had an average of about 4,970 Covid-19 patients in hospitals on any given day over the past week, up more than 18% compared with the previous week.

Remember when lockdown would take care of all this? Then it was masks. Remember, we aren’t just seeing this in the U.S., but so much of the world, including the 1st World. Many, many parts of Europe are exploding. In fact, if you look at the graphic, there are way more confirmed cases than during lockdown

And though cases is much, much higher than during lockdown…

…deaths have dropped way off. Perhaps it’s because they aren’t mixing deaths that really were from something else on the reports, and COVID only made it quicker? Of course, they are expecting a big spike in deaths.

He added that flu season typically begins to gain steam in November, and that could add another complication to the U.S. response to the pandemic. The diseases caused by the flu and the coronavirus “look very much alike” and health workers will face new challenges in trying to diagnose Covid-19 and flu patients, Schaffner said.

And flu deaths will be simply blamed on COVID. Unless Biden wins, then even deaths from COVID will be minimized, at least starting January 21st.

BTW, this doesn’t mean don’t take precautions. Wash your hands a lot, keep your distance, don’t touch, clean up, wear the barely helpful mask when necessary. I won’t tell you to do things that I don’t do myself. Better to be safe than sorry, right?

    Teach
    Masks are like seat belts they do not stop all deaths
    It was your fav POTUS who forced all the states to enforce seatbelt laws
    I think that the USA daily death counts will go up with or without masks
    Covid deaths are now a rural problem

      The first Federal law mandating seat belts in cars was LBJ. Don’t see how he is the “fav POTUS” of anyone.

      Once again, Hairy has problems with the facts.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Starting in 1984 every state except New Hampshire has enacted USE of seat belt mandate laws.

    The relatively few “Covid” deaths are like any other death by a virus, flu or bacteria. sometimes avoidable, sometimes unavoidable but they happen. It’s no reason to LOCK DOWN THE HEALTHY and put your nation out of business.

    With any other disease the infected are quarantined, but with the Communist Democrat Flu the healthy are supposed to be locked down and all “non essential” business drawn to a halt. And guess who gets to decide which businesses and employees are “non essential”? The same leftist bastards who want to CONTROL OUR NATIONAL HEALTH CARE.

    I can see Elwood now giggling in his basement as all conservatives and/or Christians are denied health care. An Elwoodian dream of communist completion.

    Trump 2020 Or we may not be here by 2024!!!

    THE PHONY SURGES:

    The Atlantic, one of many left-wing mouthpieces for the Democrat party, framed it politically, “The Coronavirus surge that will define the next four years.” How exactly does a viral illness define a future presidential term? Easily, if this has never been about the virus but instead about the election.

    Over a million tests per day are performed in the US with acceptable positive rates of under 5 percent. That means 50,000 positive tests per day but most not infectious or symptomatic. More tests mean more positive results, what the media calls “cases.” If the US didn’t offer tests on demand as we do now, this so-called surge would go away. According to the New York Times.

    The standard tests are diagnosing huge numbers of people who may be carrying relatively insignificant amounts of the virus.

    Most of these people are not likely to be contagious and identifying them may contribute to bottlenecks that prevent those who are contagious from being found in time.

    Conveniently, this current surge is in positive tests. Despite a rare moment of honesty and clarity from the New York Times, their current headline is, “US sets coronavirus case record amid new surge.” CNN is singing in harmony, “The US just reported its highest number of Covid-19 infections in one day since the pandemic’s start.”

    Now four months later (10-28-2020).

    We find the C-19 was more Scamdemic, than a Deadly Epidemic.

    Claimed Seasonal Deaths PEAKED back in the week of April 18th 2020 and have dropped from 17k to 1.8K. Which 1/20th of the normal daily US Mortality Rate.

    Roughly only (2.53%) of America’s 342 Million were infected. An that took 285+ Days for the Covid-19 to accomplish.

    Of the 8,680,611 infected, so far only 225,084 (2.59%) died along with their C-19 Infection and/or Health conditions.

    So to die from the Covid-19 you have to be part of the 2.53% of 342M to get infected and then be one of the 2.59% of the 8.6M with serious underlying health issues to have died.

    BTW: Of that 225,084, the CDC hints only about 6% were solely due to the Covid-19 Virus. With the other 95+% having advance age and/or Medical conditions.
