San Diego COVID Experts: ‘Here We Go Again’

A surge in COVID cases hitting San Diego County has public health experts worried that a rise in hospitalizations and deaths could be on the way.

The Omicron variants BA.2 and BA.2.12.1, which are even more contagious than the variant that caused a winter surge in the U.S., are responsible for the recent increase in cases across the county — rivaling numbers seen in the Delta wave late last summer. For example, confirmed cases surpassed 1,500 per day for three days straight in late May.

“The respite we get between surges seems to be decreasing,” said Corinne McDaniels-Davidson, epidemiologist and the director of the San Diego State University Institute for Public Health.

Even more alarming, she said, data from wastewater sampling suggests that the number of new cases could be undercounted as more and more people rely on home-based testing. Looking at cities that preceded San Diego in the latest COVID-19 surge, she worries that hospitalizations and deaths could soon begin to rise.

“I think that probably is coming,” she said. “It’s frustrating.”

COVID has killed more than 5,300 people in San Diego County since the start of the pandemic. While hospitalizations hit their lowest point of the year in April, county data show those numbers rising throughout May.

We’re in for a rough ride.

Horrible analogy. This is only a ride if you consider a train wreck that is still most definitely still in progress.

At least one out of every 331 people in this country has died of Covid in the last 2 years. That’s the ‘official’ number being a million dead in this country. Which is very likely an under-count due to incompetence and/or deliberate suppression for political gain by how the deaths were counted (think FL).

In 1918, the last Pandemic, this planet only had 1.1 Billion. There was no ‘flu’ shots and people argued about masks and the disease being faked just as…shall we say…’vigorously’ as the current crop of anti-science zealots have over the last two years. Probably 50 million died worldwide but so many were uncounted then, too, as life was very rural still then across broad swaths of the world…

Worse, this is mostly preventable or at least would be much more controllable if only the stupid and the greedy (not always the same people but often are) would quit acting like they do. I’m not polite or PC enough I guess but with 21 dead on my list including two relatives, I’ve lost any empathy for those humans that fit into those two categories.

There is also is a growing list of people I know that are talking about their Long Covid/Sequelae symptom after effects (over 200 documented so far) Those are mainly ignored because it doesn’t fit into the narrative of ‘we are so over covid’ economic propaganda and bluntly the doctors don’t know what to do about it. Too new of a disease. What will 10 years show, 20? Brain damage, brain shrinkage, these we know are happening already!

Certainly the long term economic and health ramifications look a bit grim being that roughly 30% of the people who have caught it have symptoms that linger or come on suddenly both serious and not. Which comes to tens of millions of people worldwide at this point.

Maybe 20 million dead so far being reported by the WHO, and we’re only in another lull here in Year 3. Mustn’t alarm the serfs, though, because the only thing that matters is economics and the wealthy accumulation they produce for the already wealthy. Ain’t economics grand?

I’ve posted links and vids on Covid articles here on the RAG, and will continue to do so because it’s the correct thing to do. I’ll add another couple below though I really have no idea if anyone is paying attention.

#1 wear a freaking mask indoors at least. An N95 not a earloops surgical mask or a cloth mask unless you have a replaceable filter style as prolonged exposure is a factor for increased chances of infection to seriously sick.

#2 send billions of the shots out around the world. They are NOT vaccines unfortunately though I certainly wish they were equal to the Polio and Smallpox and others that you never catch again after getting inoculated. But Public Health is not good for corporate profits though it should be the final word. But it isn’t, just continued insatiable greed by the already ridiculously wealthy junkies who are every bit as addicted to more as any street meth-head or heroin addict.

Do the best you can, think before you act. Always have a mask with you. Like a seatbelt, it won’t stop the accident but maybe you won’t go through the windshield…

Monkeypox cases are rising—here’s what we know so far
An outbreak of monkeypox, which is related to smallpox, has public health officials concerned. But the virus can be contained with vaccines that are already stockpiled and available in some countries.

And I’ve got one person who was in total lock-down quarantine in a physical rehab facility unit in Conneticut (lost toes to diabetes). All four patients caught a variant of the Avian flu a few weeks ago. She said it was moon-suited doctors & nurses, nobody else allowed into the ward for ten days. Another disease circulating…
