728,192 American dead

That is roughly 28,000 more than the last time I posted a death stat.

Which was on October 2.

The death rate is slowing, somewhat.

But people are still dying every day.

From Covid.

A largely now preventable death.

Cases are slowing where I live.

I know that this is not the same in all the states.

I do know that my hospital has a fifth of the cases that we had just a month ago.

We know how to stop this.

How to slow it down.

I know that myself and several of my coworkers, MD and RN and CST alike, are tired of saying it.

Wear a mask.

Wash your hands.

Get a vaccine, any vaccine.

If you are sick quarantine.

Especially sliding toward the winter.

I hope I don’t have another milestone post before Thanksgiving.

Especially with the hopefully soon FDA blessing of boosters for Moderna and J&J vaccines.

There some hope.

Just don’t be stupid.
