Great News! While Many Americans Are Living In A Paracosm Where COVID-19 Is Ending Soon, Cases Surge In Michigan, Minnesota And Elsewhere In USA!
U.S. Medical News
: While many Americans are being brainwashed by the Obama led Democrats (Biden is just a geriatric senile puppet!) who are controlling the COVID-19 narratives with the help of mainstream media and certain tech giants, that the COVID-19 crisis is going to be over soon for America and that vaccines are super effective in curtailing this pandemic and that currently it is only a crisis affecting the unvaccinated, new surges are being reported across the country especially in the states of Michigan and Minnesota.
It was reported in the last 24 hours that hospitals in Michigan and Minnesota are witnessing a wave of COVID-19 patients not seen in months as beds were filled with both vaccinated and unvaccinated people and health care leaders warned that staff were being worn down by yet another surge.
The state of Michigan had slightly more than 3,000 COVID-19 patients in hospitals this week, the first time it had crossed that threshold since spring, while nearly all hospital beds were occupied in Minnesota. Both held the unflattering rank of national virus hotspots.
Dr Bob Riney, chief operating officer at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit told U.S. Medical News
about the hospital situation there, “It should be alarming to all of us with the number of caseloads we are seeing.”
Although the overall outlook has improved significantly in recent weeks in the U.S., with coronavirus hospitalizations standing at about 40,000, compared with more than 90,000 at the peak of the delta surge, may states across the country are witnessing new surges in recent days.
Although the virus spread has slowed in the South to the point that more locations are doing away with mask restrictions, this is simply going to backfire on all in coming weeks as this is not the time to let down on safeguards.
Pockets of the country are seeing surges, including the Northeast, Rockies and Upper Midwest.
The Henry Ford Health and Spectrum Health across the state in Grand Rapids, Michigan, together reported 700 COVID-19 patients in their hospitals, the majority of whom were not vaccinated. Positive test rates were running above 20%.
It was reported that Michigan had the country's highest seven-day COVID-19 case rate at 503 per 100,000 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The state of Minnesota was in second place with case rate at 490 per 100,000 people.
Dr Riney added, "All of us had hoped that we'd be in a very different place as we approach this Thanksgiving season. But we really are not.”
He said that when he listens to front-line staff, he found that they are disheartened to see more COVID-19 cases, especially when vaccines are available.
He added, "These are the women and men that the community celebrated last year. Parades were held in their honor. They were touted as the heroes they are. But they haven't gotten a break."
Meanwhile in Minnesota, Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm said she's ready to
expand access to the booster vaccine by the end of the week if the federal government doesn't act first.
It was reported that an influential U.S. advisory panel will discuss expanding eligibility booster shots to all adults Friday, a move that could make the shots available nationwide as early as this weekend.
Pharma giant, Pfizer asked U.S. regulators last week to allow boosters of its COVID-19 vaccine for anyone 18 or older. The no longer credible U.S. Food and Drug Administration is expected to sign off on Pfizer's application before the advisory panel meets Friday. The final step which is the CDC' s (Another corrupted U.S. agency) official recommendation, could come soon after the meeting.
Health Commissioner Malcolm commented, "As we now head indoors for the winter and gather for the holidays, this booster protection is particularly important and timely.”
It was reported that more and more Americans are getting boosters.
The state of Arkansas this week joined California, Colorado, West Virginia and New Mexico in offering them to anyone 18 or older instead of only giving them to people at a greater risk for COVID-19 or age 65 and up.
However, elsewhere, some communities in the South were easing virus restrictions as a result of high vaccination rates and low numbers of positive tests.
Shockingly, the Louisiana State University dropped an indoor mask order on campus. More than eight out of every 10 students and 79% of staff are vaccinated against COVID-19.
The University’s President William Tate said, "We are moving forward with confidence but with caution!"
It was reported that masks and social distancing now are optional in Florida courthouses. Chief Justice Charles Canady noted that nearly 70% of eligible Florida residents were fully vaccinated and the rate of new COVID-19 cases had dropped.
It was said that in Orange County, Florida, which includes Orlando, county employees are no longer required to wear masks indoors, although masks still are recommended. Local virus transmission risk was downgraded to moderate.
On the 16th
Of November 2021, America reported 85,861 new COVID-19 infections, 47,364 new hospitalizations and 1092 new COVID-19 deaths. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/us/covid-cases.html
This does not represent an accurate reporting of the actual situation as many states are no longer reporting their daily figures!
The Biden administration and the Democrats are still in denial that the surges this winter could be catastrophic. Instead they are doing everything they can to manipulate COVID-19 reporting data and create an illusion that the situation is improving due to Biden’s vaccination policies and mandates.
In only a few weeks’ time America will see the reality of the situation and truly regret not taking extra precautions.
