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.
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.
