I was able to make an appointment for the vaccine on the Jackson Hospital website for this Thursday!


I didn't get an email confirmation, that concerns me a bit but I did snip/snag and print out the confirmation.

Default Mandatory contact tracing, quarantines

Nations that have controlled the COVID-19 epidemic, which causes significant health deficiencies among even those who are asymptomatic, rely on policies such as complete border closures, mandatory contact tracing, and mandatory (often digitally enforced) quarantines. Lockdowns are utilized immediately to allow public health officials to eradicate any outbreak of infection.

Some recent news stories indicate the war-like measures taken in other nations.

<<Hong Kong is threatening to knock down the doors of residents who don’t respond to authorities conducting mandatory-testing blitzes, as the city tries to end a persistent winter wave of coronavirus cases.

“The government may take legal action including removing individuals or applying to a magistrate for a warrant to break into and forcefully enter a unit,” authorities said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Asian financial hub has been attempting to curb a fourth wave of Covid-19 infections with targeted lockdowns that have seen authorities cordon off an area and restrict movement until residents receive negative results. The government has suggested some might be deliberately evading the tests in areas that range from densely packed neighborhoods to just a handful of buildings.>>

With relatively lax social distancing policies, contact tracing, and quarantine policies, the U.S. and especially Florida, given the relatively deficient public health measures of the DeSantis administration, are exposed to more transmissible and perhaps more deadly variants that also are resistant to the antibodies developed by current vaccines.

This story well explains the potential threats posed by the variants.

<<“There are two observations that are of concern with s477n,” Turville said. “The first are studies where they grow virus to be resistant to antibodies. Two that emerge are s477n and e484k, with the latter observed in the South African variant. Secondly are studies that combine the elements of the s477n virus with e484k and the UK variant [n501y]. In that setting, the RBD of the virus increases its ability to bind to the receptor cells 600 times better than the original virus.”

That means it is much more infectious....

While increased transmissibility would then be a significant risk if it mutated further, the threat of reinfection or breaking through a vaccine response would have then been an equal, if not greater, concern.>>

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...vid-19-variant

A single COVID case has resulted in a five-day lockdown in Perth, Australia. The stringent public health measures in Australia means that Australia measures the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic not by deaths, but by cases. Australia imposes mandatory, enforced quarantines on persons entering the country.

<<With a population of around 2.76 million, Western Australia has recorded 902 coronavirus cases since the pandemic began, though it currently only has 12 active cases, according to the state's health department. Over 800 of the state's confirmed cases are among international travelers and people who arrived by cruise or other vessel, with less than 100 locally-transmitted cases in total.

Australia has recorded a total of 28,811 cases, with 909 deaths, the majority of which occurred in the southeastern states of Victoria and New South Wales. The country has shown success in controlling the coronavirus through stringent lockdowns and tight border controls, with all international visitors required to undergo testing and quarantine.>>

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/31/austr...hnk/index.html

Florida now has reported 1.73 million cumulative cases and 26,684 cumulative deaths, so DEATHS in Florida adjusted for Australia's greater population roughly equal the number of CASES reported by Australia.

Australia has reported a fraction of the number of cases and deaths of Florida, despite its larger population. In most of the country, masks are not warned and the domestic economy is uninhibited.

The U.S., led by Trump administration and his supporters, has refused to approach the COVID-19 with war-like measures and is suffering the consequences. Given the constant emergence of variants, it may be unlikely that the U.S. will control this epidemic with only a vaccination policy. And the U.S. has not yet quantified the serious health deficiencies that have resulted from the COVID-19 epidemic. These deficiencies likely will burden the U.S. health system and economy for years into the future.

<<Researchers who have scanned the hearts and lungs of people who tested positive for COVID-19, but never felt ill, have seen telltale signs of distress....

Across four different studies of people with asymptomatic infections, about half have had ground glass opacities on CT scans.

Aileen Marty, MD, professor of infectious diseases at Florida International University, says the hazy areas are areas of inflammation. It’s a sign that the lung is sick. She has seen it for herself. In her hospitals, 67% of people who don’t feel ill but test positive for COVID-19 have some changes in their lungs that can be seen on CT scans....

It’s one reason the director of the Palm Beach County Health Department, Alina Alonso, MD, has cautioned county officials to be careful when reopening schools.

“They are seeing there is damage to the lungs in these asymptomatic children. ... We don’t know how that is going to manifest a year from now or 2 years from now,” Alonso told Palm Beach County commissioners at a July meeting. “Is that child going to have chronic pulmonary problems or not?”>>

https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/2020...n%20CT%20scans.

<<Even though tens of millions of Americans have been infected with the coronavirus, most will recover with seemingly little after-effects, but now there’s gathering evidence that even asymptomatic cases can can damage a person’s lungs even worse than smoking.

Trauma surgeon Dr. Brittany Bankhead-Kendall wants everyone to know that post-COVID lungs look worse than any type of terrible smoker’s lung she’s ever seen.>>

Should be "worn."

Should be "domestic, non-international tourism economy."

Default Florida grocer's no mask policies featured on NBC Nightly News; Florida leads nation in UK variant cases

See the clip from the Feb. 3 broadcast labeled "Florida grocery store captures nation's divide over wearing," likely only available until the Feb. 4 broadcast. The segment features a grocery store with no plexiglass dividers where no employees and few customers where masks. Gov. DeSantis ban on using penalties to enforce local mask guidelines prohibits local governments in Florida from enforcing mask mandates.

https://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news

<<Orange City, like other localities around the state, lost its power to fine individuals violating the mask requirement when Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order forbidding such penalties. Orange City’s mask ordinance originally provided for civil fines ranging from $25 for the first offense to $50 for a second and $100 for repeated violations.>>

https://www.beacononlinenews.com/new...711dcf748.html

The segment features an interview with Alfie Oakes, the owner of the Naples grocery featured in the segment. He denies that masks protect against COVID-19 or that 400,000 persons

Once the NBC Nightly News broadcasts its Feb. 4 episode, this segment likely will only be available by watching the entire Feb. 3 episode.

Here's a separate youtube video showing the grocery's no-mask environment.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndCqxSO4D4M

My thought watching the segment is what happens as the more contagious COVID-19 variants become dominant in Florida. Will the Naples grocery become a COVID super spreading hotspot? Will DeSantis revoke his ban on mask mandate enforcement penalties? Or will Florida suffer a surge in COVID cases despite ongoing vaccination programs?

<<The data aren’t reassuring. Danish scientists’ best guess is that B.1.1.7 spreads 1.55 times faster than previous variants, Holten Møller says.>>

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2021...19-virus-surge

<<Cases of the coronavirus in Florida are rising and, although Florida Walmart and Sam's Club pharmacies will receive COVID-19 vaccine doses next week, there is a race against time. Infiltrating the state is the new COVID-19 variant out of the UK, also known as B117—one considered "more transmissible" by experts. The variant now represents at least 5% of cases in the state, according to the latest estimates from tracing company Helix. >>

Omitted from post 109:

<<"Florida leads the country for the highest number of cases of the contagious UK COVID-19 variant, data shows," reports the New York Post. "The Sunshine State is home to 147 of the total 467 cases of the new mutation, according to a tally from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. California trails behind Florida with 113 cases, while New York follows in third with 42 reported, according to the data. The first stateside case of the variant, also known as B117, was detected in Colorado in late December.">>
