Or jump in the pool!

Usually 1 shower works though. I'll do 2 if I'm active or working out, wouldn't everybody else do the same? If not, that's weird. I usually take a shower before bed, just incase somebody else might be in the mood (which I have found to be around 8% of the time <---that's a joke, usually it's around 90-100%). <---j/k again.

Beautiful day at the ballpark today. Looks like things are pretty much back to normal here.

Put that axe-grinder nitwit on your ignore list like I have. He’s got issues.

But still, you need to come to terms with realty about Covid. You’ve been listening to the wrong people. There is a middle ground between the buttholes at CNN who want to make this last forever, and the people who think that Covid is one giant hoax

Miami-Dade, Broward lead US in hospital admissions for critical care due to delta variant

MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami-Dade and Broward counties now lead the U.S. in the number of hospital admissions for critical care, as cases of COVID-19 surge in South Florida due to the delta variant.

Video from Memorial Healthcare System captured a busy intensive care unit at Memorial Hospital West in Miramar.

Hospital officials said the ICU has nearly reached capacity with critical COVID-19 patients.

“Most of these patients are in their 30s, their 40s and 50s,” Memorial Hospital Nurse Manager Juana Mejía said.

^ “their 30s, 40s and 50s”… and what’s the breakdown between those very different age groups?

Leading the US doesn’t mean a whole lot when overall numbers are down, and 96% of these people are unvaccinated (by choice). So who cares?

Florida currently has 10,600 hospitalized. Not the most ever, but only around 1,000 below the peak last summer and it's still rising rapidly.

And 96% of them are unvaccinated, according to this article. So I do not care.

The vaccine works. Proof is in the pudding. But amazing (and maddening) how so many people are still refusing it.

I care only because the willfully unvaccinated are prolonging this crap.

And I’m pretty sure that the doctors and nurses in regions where there is poor vaccine compliance are getting fed up with this crap as well

10,600 cases.
55 in the ICU
1 in the ICU is fully vaccinated?

1 fully vaxxed patient out of a total 10,600 cases is in the ICU?
That's 0.009%

^ There may be hospitalized people who are NOT in the ICU who’ve been vaccinated as well, but I’m sure, as has borne out elsewhere, the ratio is probably very low

Pedestrian had Covid last week, his worst fear (even worse than clowns and spiders). We haven’t heard from him in a while. Pedestrian are you still alive?

Being that he’s all couped up in his basement, I fear that if he croaked nobody would know for about 5 weeks. Pedestrian! Where are you?

And ultimately there will always be people who are hospitalised or die from this, even if vaccinated, just as they are with flu. It may be that they are very old and frail, or that the vaccine just didn’t produce a strong immune response. That’s life.

People who are particularly vulnerable should probably be encouraged to get antibody tests done a few weeks after their second dose, to confirm that the vaccination “took”.

If hospitals ICU's are full, plenty of responsible people with non-COVID critical issues will be turned away.

I mean, it's the same reason we mandate seat belts. Not wearing one doesn't just impact you. First you could literally hit someone else going through the windshield. But more broadly those who don't wear seat belts drive up insurance costs (both auto and medical) for the rest of us.

You're comparing apples and oranges here. 10,600 is for the whole state, and 55 in the ICU was for for a single hospital chain in the Miami area with 420 total COVID patients.

That’s easy. Prioritise the non-Covid issues over unvaccinated Covid patients.

Vaccines will never be 100% effective; but what they do excel at is rapidly reducing the possibility of getting ill, let alone hospitalised or die.

10023 you mentioned earlier that you don’t care that the people who are falling victim are overwhelmingly those who are unvaccinated, but you should care. Regardless of their ignorance and stupidity to not get vaccinated, more people dying or suffering long-term medical conditions will have an indirect cost on you, me and the rest of society. There was a father in his mid-30’s who died from Covid the other week, leaving behind two young kids who – from a statistical perspective – likely to experience more adverse life prospects.

Did he actually confirm that he tested positive? I thought he was just concerned about exposure after an office visit with his physician and went to get tested.
