Sticky Post
The original COVID-19 Outbreak thread has been closed but is still available as a read-only thread (sticky above). The original thread had become less and less about new information and more about petty bickering. The purpose of this new thread is to link or report new information as it comes out. Try not to go off course from the topic. Those of you who had been banned from the original thread feel free to participate in this new thread. Just stay on topic. Thank you.
-----------------
Edit - Andrus:
Bottom line is that moving forward we simply don't want any political bickering going on within this thread, and want to try to limit this thread to being as much about sharing Covid-19 information as possible.

If you want to discuss the political aspects of Covid-19 with other SR members, you can do so here (If you are not already registered there, you will be required to do so)...

Going off memory, but I believe it was a tweet about how the White House is now expecting an additional 50 million vaccine doses (over what was expected in the order) from one of the first 2 manufacturers, think it was Pfizer...which would be pretty cool
I thought that was legit news -- CNN reported on the "50 million doses" story early this morning -- but I see now why the tweet was pulled -- the White House had a press conference a few hours ago that went against the "50 million" report:

MODERATOR: Next we’ll go to Josh Wingrove at Bloomberg.

Q Hi there. Thank you so much for doing this. Can you just maybe run through the topline numbers? You said 11 million a week to states. Jeff, Dr. Nunez-Smith, did you put a number? I didn’t quite catch it on how many would go to community health centers. And, of course, there was pledge of up to a million to pharmacies. Should we be adding these all together for total shipments?

And secondly, I wanted to ask that there’s a report that you’ve told — the governors, excuse me, that Pfizer is boosting its shipments this quarter by 50 million doses. Is that accurate? Can you give us any more detail on that? Thank you.

MR. ZIENTS: Yeah, on the Pfizer piece — I’ll take the second one first: Not to my knowledge whatsoever. What I think Pfizer did announce a couple of weeks ago was that they were going to deliver 120 million doses in the first quarter, up from 100 million, and that they would fulfill their commitment for their first 200 million doses by the end of May. But I’m not aware of any additional Pfizer announcements. So Pfizer did announce those accelerated deliveries a couple of weeks ago, which is obviously good news.

I’ll remind people also that the President ordered the next 200 million doses, which will provide us with 600 million doses — 100 each from Moderna and Pfizer to bring us to a total of 600 million this summer, which is enough vaccine to vaccinate all Americans.

I just heard my daughter (age 6) telling my other daughter (age 7) about a new friend she met on the playground after school yesterday.

I just caught the tail-end but I heard her say ". . . and she believes in coronavirus, so she wears a mask."
Good job Dad.

I've been largely unimpressed with vaccination strategies in the local areas. Not-good-enough. This was something that was supposed to be wrapping up near the fall of this year and wouldn't be surprised if this goes on much further into 2022 at this rate. Parents have been getting the run-around for weeks despite them both being of the age group that is supposed to be getting the vaccine.

317 new cases for Louisiana today. The last time we were in that neck of the woods was mid-May. The light at the end of the tunnel continues to grow.

Per ldh.la.gov: "On 2/10/21 LDH is reporting incomplete counts for tests and cases due to a server issue."

My boss thought he had it since Sunday... Lost his taste. Kept his smell. Results came back today as negative.

Ah ok, didn't see that. Regardless, we're definitely on the downward portion of the rollercoaster for now.

did you see the news where Metairie was gearing up for mardi gras?
Nope, didn't see that. So we'll have another spike coming in soon. Awesome. At least with all of the vaccinations rolling out and all of the people who've already had it, the spike shouldn't be as big.

Gonna be kind of weird. No parade route ... so just go fill the streets of Fat City? Or else hang out at various barrooms throughout the parish?

The Fly is closing again for Mardi Gras. I would still prefer the city allow outdoor activity rather than drive everyone indoors or to JP but Latoya is gonna Latoya.

I guess it doesn't really matter since the weather will be terrible.
