As the UK strain (now confirmed in Harris County) makes its way here (inevitable), expect cases to rise sharply. Good luck and hang in there to our tremendous frontline health care people, giving their all.

Thank goodness it isn't very virulent, so most will just think it's a cold and not get tested.

It's here already and has been for a while. Nothing we humans do is going to stop a virus from doing its thing.

Please stop with the fear mongering.

Don't forget cedar fever. Heard them on the radio today talking about the symptoms of cedar allergy being similar to Covid except for the loss of smell/taste. Even down to the fever.

I saw an article last week about the one symptom everyone with Covid has had...loss of smell/taste. Saw an article today stating that recent studies show loss of smell is most common in MILD Covid cases. I give up.

I was very blessed to have mild symptoms. Never ran a fever, had nausea or headache. I lost my smell and taste, had lower back pain and mild fatigue. I was able to qualify for the infusion treatment at MD Anderson and felt better in 24 hours.

Just an FYI: I test monthly at the senior care facility and we usually get the results back in about 48 hours. This latest round of testing however has taken over five days to get results back. No one seems to know what the delay was caused by, but I'd guess the increase in sheer numbers of tests is feasible.

what type of test? The folks I know on campus seem to be doing mostly (by a wide margin) saliva tests.

Maybe that particular test method is seeing a rapid influx of testing samples from the University staff returning?

My wife did a TAMU saliva test on Wednesday afternoon and had results on Thursday mid-morning. Maybe she got lucky, though.

I have done the A&M drive-through saliva test twice now, once in November and again earlier this week. Both times I had results back the next day.

Got test results within 24 hours both times I was tested at TAMU. Unfortunately the second test was a positive and it's sucked ever since.

They lost tests for my wife and kids and another friend and his family back at the end of October Both families used the same kiosk by Mays. Granted "they" could be their courier.

As in, it's sucked because you have Covid, or it sucks because of the bureaucracy of a positive test?

seems very strange that brazos county hospitalizations increased by 16 but region N hospitalizations decreased by 18.

Why does that seem strange? There are other counties in region N.

Other counties may be keeping their own covid patients, since we are out of room? Or it's just worse here than in the other counties.

Could be lots of non Brazos county folks were discharged.

Brazos county numbers are only Brazos county residents not the number of Covid patients in Brazos county hospitals.

Gotcha. Didn't realize Madison and burleson count even when they keep them. Good to know.

The health dept's node site says 7 deaths but the dashboard shows 6 deaths. I'm not sure which is correct.

I would not be surprised if it was not 7 deaths yesterday, but over the last few days, given how the BCHD has had issues previously with accurate numbers.

And yes, some of this is definitely the end result of nursing home outbreaks, but not all of it. Thankfully it seems those have burned out (hopefully stays that way and no more happen), but given the EMS runs as of late, there is a fair number of cases that are not nursing home related. That said, most of the patients are still people in the age range where they are more vulnerable to the virus.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

Seven in one day is terrible.

Any word on a plan yet? Or more of the same?
