That’s not a criticism, it’s an honest question. I’m curious to see if there’s starting to be some crossover between flu and COVID and ICU capacity. Tennessee also fell below 300 beds this past summer.

Having spent a lot of time in Tennessee I know there’s a lot of morbidly obesity and Type II patient populations. This could be a prefect storm brewing down there, but we’d need to know more details regarding pt diagnoses.

It looks like there are about 2000 ICU beds in Tennessee with a lot of available “airborne infection isolation” space still available. This is a pretty interesting tracking tool.

Just looked at the numbers. Looks like 1,140 are from COVID. I’m assuming the rest are flu or other critical conditions.

Also, just read an article saying the WH is pushing for Gov. Lee to issue a statewide mask mandate.

I’ve lived here for about 5 years. They do have a obesity and diabetes problem. Which in turn causes blood pressure, heart, and kidney issues. So lots of co-morbidities.

Thanks for that link. I’ll check it out.

Crazy that the state is in that situation and they haven’t issued a statewide mask mandate. That is literally the easiest and least costly thing to do. It is also guaranteed to help. Noticed they had no problem allowing fans at the Titans game on Tuesday.

UTAH
“Our hospitals are getting overwhelmed,” Republican Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said this week. “The dramatic increase in infections has put the integrity of our health care system at risk.“

The University of Utah Health System, one of the largest hospitals in the state, reported its ICU is 95 percent filled, and health systems in other parts of the country have been forced to relocate patients because of bed and staffing shortages.
INDIANA
In Indiana, the state is facing “critical ICU bed shortages along with personnel shortages” according to Chief Medical Officer Lindsay Weaver, only three weeks after Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb removed most Covid-related restrictions. Officials have put out a call for volunteers to help fill staffing shortages in hard-hit facilities near the Michigan and Kentucky borders.
WISCONSIN
Wisconsin, where President Donald Trump plans to hold a rally on Saturday, opened a field hospital on its state fairgrounds in West Allis on Wednesdayafter officials said the health care system is in crisis.
TEXAS
The area around El Paso, Texas, a city of nearly 700,000, has 10 remaining ICU beds, [Only registered users can see links.] . On Monday, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott [Only registered users can see links.] , including nurses and respiratory therapists, to help respond.
NEW MEXICO
Meanwhile, two out of three major hospitals in Albuquerque, N.M., are at, or exceeding, capacity. Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Thursday announced that restaurants and bars must close at 10 p.m. and gatherings of more than five would be prohibited.
“This is the most serious emergency New Mexico has ever faced,” she said.
OKLAHOMA
A spokesperson for Integris, Oklahoma’s largest health system, reported one available ICU bed on Thursday after having none available on Wednesday. T
NORTH DAKOTA
In Fargo, North Dakota’s most populous city, there were 10 ICU beds available on Wednesday, and in Bismarck, the state capital, there was only one, [Only registered users can see links.] .
WYOMING
“This is not going to go away for the next several months,” said Mark Dowell, an infectious disease doctor at the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, where on Wednesday morning every room was occupied and 17 patients were holding in the emergency room.
“Our hospital is already stretched, and we are not even seeing the amount of Covid we are going to see,” Dowell said.

Just because you’re tired of the pandemic, doesn’t mean it’s over. Many feel that it’s over, but are we any better than we were in March? Not really IMO. Wear a friggin mask and stay out of large groups. It sucks, but as shown above, cases are sky-high and only going to get worse.

Wearing a mask while inside the bubble seems a little redundant.

I think it's pretty smart. Of course it's not for everyone and it might get hot in there. Also, is there any fresh air in there somehow? Probably not, as that would defeat the purpose.

Also this:

For anyone reacting negatively to that bubble concert photo, some context is needed. At every Flaming Lips show (that I've ever seen at least), Wayne Coyne, the lead singer, comes out into the crowd in a bubble. It's a staple of their shows. So during COVID, it's actually a fun perfect twist in the spirit of their shows that they'd give the audience their own bubbles.

Exactly. I think I said earlier that that's the most Flaming Lips thing that could possibly happen.

Is he making some sort of artistic statement or is he immune compromised? Interesting to know. Still looks laughable.

Yikes. None of that. It's just a cool fun thing he does to roll out onto audiences (like crowd-surfing in a bubble).
Seems like nobody is understanding the context of this concert. I hope articles are conveying this properly to avoid the reactions like on this board.

Fair enough. It just looks strange is all.

Can we go back to Great Barrington again for a second? I was just looking at the site and aside from a vague "protect the vulnerable" statement I don't see what they actually propose we DO to protect the vulnerable.

My wife has several high risk conditions. Unless you can tell me exactly how you're protecting people like her then you're not going to get buy in from people like me. Great Barrington seems pretty flimsy to me right now.
