Our ICU numbers have halved since I've been on leave. Sadly not because of recovery.

 

Only around 1,100 positive tests in the last week, but we have two large universities in the city so it'll be interesting to see what happens over the next four weeks as lectures begin.

Here the restrictions are even more loosened, which is probably not the brightest idea when the Winter is Coming and less and less people feel inclined to get their vaccination (plus the government closed down the Covid vaccination centres, so that people now have to go to their GPs to get vaccinated). The RKI already warned about the fourth wave, but the politicians fear that the vocal and very aggressive anti-vaxxer and anti-lockdown minority might cause trouble otherwise.

 

If they wouldn't endanger other people who might lack hospital beds for stuff like heart attacks, strokes, accidents etc and stress out the nurses and doctors who have to treat them even if they caused their illness by wanton neglicence, I would say just let them get infected and deal with Covid on their own, but fortunately the doctors and nurses are obviously better people than I am (and not as vindictive). But frankly, I would let the anti-vaxxers pay for their treatments out of their own pockets and not cover this by the health insurances if they don't have a good (that is, medical) reason not to get inoculated!

Somehow we still have a higher 7-day incidence in my home town than the average of NRW. In the last two days there was a rise in hospitalisations here, but fortunately the number of people who need ICU care hasn't risen (yet).

Sigh. My friend can't taste anything, and guess what? I'm at her house. Yay. 

 

We are both vaccinated, as well as her dad who is in his 70s but... I'm a bit nervous since the virus led to my grandmother passing away.

I was reading that 1 in 4 COVID deaths were parents who left a child behind. 

 

Covid sucks. 

 

relevant stats: in Missouri 8/6 7-day average peaked at 3,178. 10/5 average 1,043 (it spiked a bit again yesterday, 1,178) Deaths per day is more unpredictable but the 7 day average remains under 20/day (but 33 for 10/6). Population 6.13 million with 6.33 million vaccinations reported. (10.3% differential; 45% 2 dose, 55.3% 1 dose)

@AsymDoll13

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that you (and the people around you) will be fine!

 

@amthystfire

"Covid sucks" - absolutely agreed!

 

My Dad has been in the hospital (non-Covid related stuff, but still very serious as he had heavy bleedings after a coloscopy where several adenoids were cut out, then follow-up open surgery - he needed a full dozen blood bottles) for four weeks and the visiting times were strictly limited due to Covid rules - only one person per day and patient for a maximum of 1 hour and only if either doubly vaccinated, recovered or freshly negative PCR tested. But at least here the hospital capacities are good enough that the normal operation is not endangered due to Covid-19. All the restrictions are very annoying, although obviously necessary as no one wants to catch this drat virus in the hospital either.

 

Today there was a statement by the acting Health Minister Jens Spahn (we had a federal election about two weeks ago, but no new government yet as the coalition negotiations are ongoing right now - and in the meantime the old government is still doing their jobs) that came a quite a surprise. He stated that the RKI did some research into the vaccination numbers and found out that it seems that there are some million more people fully vaccinated in Germany than are officially reported. The difference is due to the fact that many mobile teams likely forgot to report their vaccination numbers and many of the medical officers in companies that did vaccinations also didn't report their numbers to the official posts. So the RKI started to dig around and now it appears as if 80% of the adults are fully vaccinated and 84% at least once.

I just wonder why the numbers for my home town are considerably lower - but maybe they are even worse in counting XD

Mine come from here -  but they are not always up to date. Various people send the newer reports out by WhatsApp and Twitter.

 

I learned a sad Covid story here recently. There were four sisters in a family who used to run a linens and clothing shop in Bay Street, one of the longest running shops on the island. Only two sisters were still alive, and older now, like 90s kind of older, and they both died recently, within a couple of weeks of each other. It turns out both died ftom Covid. They got it when their housekeeper, who knew she was Covid-positive, came to work anyway. Stoopid woman. (If she's not dead from it, I do hope she was fired.)

In my case there are various sources.

 

Official data for all of Germany with elaborate statistics can be found at the RKI here:

The RKI is the German equivalent to the US' CDC and also works closely together with the JHU:

Also interesting - Covid world data:  https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

If the housekeeper really knew she had Covid and still went to vulnerable persons, she should be prosecuted IMO. In Germany, the laws actually support this and in connecttion to Covis, the criminal offence can range from bodily injury caused by negligence up to murder.I really hope you will soon get more vaccines!

Since I was with my fiance on wednesday, thursday, and friday we both got ourselves tested. Turns out my fiance tested positive and I tested negative, although I still have to be in quarantine for two weeks, until the 22th. We both got fully vaccinated so he's not showing any severe symptoms so far, but I'd be very grateful for any thoughts and prayers. Thank you.

I hope you will come well through the quarantine and that your friend stays asymptomatic, too. That's the great thing about the vaccines after all - they protect well against severe illness, if not fully against an infection.

And now we're getting to the bit we feared:

 

- Not enough staff as so many are off for mental health causes as well as the usual impeding winter bugs,

 

- More patients with non-COVID-19 problems as per usual winter build-up,

 

- The additional workload of constant COVID-19 patients,

 

= Not enough staff for our patients to be safely cares for,

 

= Putting supernumerary staff into the numbers before they've had training,

 

= Unable to cope, staff quit,

 

= Worsening staffing levels due to recruitment and retention, leaving us further understaffed both now and in the future.

 

Repeat and rinse the last four points ad infinitum.
