Well here goes the shuffling back and forth, Atlanta goes back to Phase 1. Guess you have to hope they know what they are doing but somehow to me it looks like a political ploy more than anything else. They are also reactivating the virtually unused overflow beds at the GWCC.

ATLANTA — Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is preparing to roll back the city's reopening plans as coronavirus cases surge, a spokesperson told Channel 2 Action News Friday.

The city will go back to Phase 1, in which all residents are ordered to stay home except for essential trips.

Atlanta entered Phase 2 at the end of May, which was described as an “easing” of restrictions phase.

Atlanta rolls back to phase 1 COVID plan


Yeah.

Number of available beds at metro hospitals reaching critical levels (not to mention areas of Texas, Arizona, and Florida)




“The stress it puts on the hospital systems, the medical systems is significant and that is increasing, not decreasing,” Jansen told Channel 2 Action News.

The number of hospital beds are filling up for trauma patients and those needing long term care, and when you add in those needing treatment for the coronavirus, there's barely enough bed space.

“We’ve tripled that number. Not quite as high as we were in the peak in early, mid-May but we are rapidly approaching that,” Jansen said.


Coronavirus hospitalizations have more than doubled in last 2 weeks

She faked Contracting coronavirus last week to lay the groundwork for today's action.

I'd bet $20 Pennsylvania will be back to phase 1 in the next 2 weeks.

Well it just doesn't look like the numbers warrant another shutdown, I don't want anybody to get sick, my Uncle just got out of the hospital with COVID he was there 4 days 76 years old previous lung condition and he is out and at home doing fine. Just like 95% of the patients do. Hell most of my family is at risk cause we are either old, overweight had previous conditions and or smoke. So we are and have been aware of the danger, I would not be surprised if one or two of us hasn't already got COVID honestly. That said this ain't Canada we got bills to pay and we need to get back to work to see if our business will actually be viable. Been virtually shut down four months with COVID and the riots and we were really hoping to get just a chance.

It's almost like she couldn't enforce the wear a mask, so she shut it all down.

And yes it's frustrating economically we were getting ready for our August tradeshow normally our largest of the year. Even though we know numbers will be down we were hoping to get some business and be able to meet our customers and get back to work, which obviously is all in jeopardy now.

"During the 2017-2018 season, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was at or above the epidemic threshold for 16 consecutive weeks. During the past five seasons, the average number of weeks this indicator was above threshold was 11 (range of 7 to 15 weeks). Nationally, mortality attributed to P&I exceeded 10.0% for four consecutive weeks, peaking at 10.8% during the week ending January 20, 2018."

So.....................where were the masks and lock downs during 2018?

Oh yea, I forgot. It's an election year. Silly me.

Your source:

While flu vaccine can vary in how well it works, flu vaccination is the best way to prevent flu and its potentially serious complications and prevents millions of flu illnesses and related doctors’ visits and tens of thousands of hospitalizations.


Perhaps the same will be true for COVID at some point. Then these measures may not be necessary.

Not at all I get that they have to be cautious, but they do have the overflow beds that were barely used the first go around, still available. Even in our worst days here they only used 17 of the 200 available, as well as now the hospitals have gotten way better at managing triage and getting patients in and out quickly. As a side note, the hospitals aren't eliminating other surgery procedures which is telling in itself wouldn't you say.

I haven't had the flu shot in 25 years. To think a magical vaccine is the only thing to stop absurd power projections (masks) and the corporate take over of mom and pop stores is beyond ridiculous.

If hospitals are raising alarms, it might be prudent to pay attention.

That's awesome.

The flu vaccine helps control the disease. There is no COVID vaccine.

Hospitals are and will continue to do elective surgeries which obviously takes up resources and beds. Atlanta my have a rush on beds but there are lots of hospitals in the surrounding area especially on the northside, which I had to visit numerous times the past 2 weeks. Last checked Georgia has over 22,000 hospital beds with the vast majority within one hour of Atlanta.

So could you explain why nothing was shut down and forced quarantines weren't a thing before a flu vaccine was developed?

Yes. They seem to be talking about projection a while out. Best to slow the snowball earlier rather than later, I think. Flatten the curve, so to speak.
