Thank you all. I've got a good cough and fever right now. Doc hooked up a lot of those vitamins and an inhaler.

I'll keep y'all informed. Cheers.

No weekend updates from the BCHD

Current Brazos County vaccination numbers: 88,855 (+274) people vaccinated with at least one dose as of 5/14/21. The number of fully vaccinated people is now 70,848 (+1,596). According to the state's vaccination dashboard, 37.92% of Brazos County residents (16 yrs and older) are now fully vaccinated.

Total COVID hospitalizations in Region N: 14 (-7); 2.47% of total hospital capacity as of 5/13/21.

It's nice to see the region COVID hospitalization numbers fall to such low levels. FYI - the estimated population of region N is 360,355.

Weird swings with the hospital numbers. Wonder if we had some overly cautious "admit for observation" orders.

Perhaps a few small outbreaks at one or more nursing homes. Even with most residents having the vaccine, it is inevitable some will get it, and a few of those will still develop a serious case.

I don't know of any and I would assume any would be small compared to what we used to see; but it wouldn't take much to send hospital numbers up temporary. There was one in Brenham which had an outbreak in March including people who had been vaccinated so it would not be out of the realm of possibility.
"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

That's what I originally thought when numbers went up rapidly but a large number of discharges seems odd.

It's got to be the way they report.

A friend of ours died yesterday, been in the hospital for a week. Admittedly I haven't been following the numbers, so I'm wondering if maybe it takes an extra day to catch up and even out?

The hospital numbers are usually correct because of the way hospital census is reported. Deaths usually lag because of the health dept.

I'm very sorry about your friend.

There will always be new cases these day and in the future. It won't stop. So, we will have to accept that and understand it will be the new norm, but not one to panic over.

How long should this thread continue? LOL.

Real answer - as long as posters keep it going. Not everyone goes to Brazos Health for numbers, but they all come here!

Another real answer - as long as there are yahoos in government who want to implement restrictions based on covid numbers, it's best that as many as possible know those numbers. This thread helps in that process.

Thanks Mimi. One of the posters made a similar disparaging comment in Jan. Saying they just didn't believe the figures. It was on a different thread

You're welcome. I've been stuck working from home for the past 14 months, so keeping up with the numbers in this thread is a welcome distraction.

Many years from now, when it gets bumped to the top, it will be interesting to read back through the data.

Seriously? They are meaningless at this point. They are only as good as the original source which hasn't been very reliable. Look at posts about that all through this thread. It's time to move on from this. I'll leave this for those who want to wallow in it. See ya'.

I went back to page 1 for old times sake.

Let's just say I'm glad we are where we are with this thing. A lot has happened in a little over a year.

To MiMi, lockett, trouble, etc (I know I've missed some important contributors (sorry) not just responders like me) I'd like to say thank you for keeping up with the count. First round is on me when we meet for a celebratory happy hour as this baby winds down.

No, seriously, I think that's a good idea.
