Florida also has the worlds largest population of people who scream “WOOOOOOO!” indoors, they should look at that as a potential vector

This doco went out here tonight. First of two parts. It was really tough to watch. So many needless deaths. Wear a mask lads. Fuck the politics. Show this to anyone that won’t.

You want heartbreaking, read this. Especially the section that starts on page 114.

https://www.mass.gov/doc/report-to-gove ... e/download

Quote:
It appears that when COVID-19 struck the locked dementia units, the Home’s leaders’ focus
shifted from any attempt to prevent the spread of the virus within those units to preparing for the deaths
of scores of residents.
Social workers were assigned to contact family members to discuss end-of-life
preferences.10 On the afternoon of the consolidation, 13 additional body bags were delivered to the 1-
North unit.11 A refrigerated truck, intended to supplement the limited capacity of the Home’s morgue,
arrived on Saturday, March 28.1



Quote:
We have identified the following as the most serious errors during the COVID-19 response at the
Soldiers’ Home:

1. Combining two locked dementia units containing veterans with a mix of COVID19 statuses, and failing to ensure an appropriate standard of care on the newly combined unit

The worst decision made during the Soldiers’ Home’s response to COVID-19 occurred on the
afternoon of Friday, March 27, 2020. On that afternoon, Chief Nursing Officer Vanessa Lauziere decided
that—because a number of staff members had called in sick for the evening shift that was about to begin—
115
one of the Home’s two locked dementia units (2-North) would be closed and consolidated with the other
(1-North).

...

This decision was a catastrophe. Staff described the move as “total pandemonium,” “when hell
broke loose,” and “a nightmare.”850 One staff member remembered thinking, “How can they do this
because this [is] the most insane thing I ever saw in my entire life.”851 She “felt it was like moving the
concentration camp—we are moving these unknowing veterans off to die. I will never get those images
out of my mind—what we did, what was done to those veterans.
”852 Other witnesses, including the
Interim Administrator brought in three days later to stabilize the situation, described the combined unit as
resembling a “war zone.”853 A number of witness accounts suggest that veterans on the combined unit did
not receive sufficient nursing care, hydration, or pain relief medications during the weekend of March 28
and 29.

Someone I know just died in a dementia unit at an assisted-living facility. We thought COVID at first, but it turns out he fell and hit his head. This is my mom's best friend's husband. Someone else my wife knows was just straight-up fucking murdered in cold blood last week. Life is great, thanks for asking!

I don’t even understand your question, verb. Is it: what is the point of continuing to report on and discuss the pandemic we are all living through?

If it bothers you to think about, maybe pick a different thread.

Also:

verb: 1.2m
McParadigm: 500k
Self: 480k
Wease: 460k
Mickey: 400k
LetMeSleep: 370k
Chud: 350k
Ruddo: 330k


Thinking about the wave of deaths coming in August. I'd like to pick a different number

At this rate I think 200k by September and 350k by the end of the year would be a conservative estimate.

No new Covid-19 deaths reported in Massachusetts today. We've been hovering around two to four dozen deaths a day for a couple of weeks now.

Yeah, because investors think the rising case numbers means Congress will pass another relief bill.
