re: Orange County Florida (Orlando) is spiking with the Covid, now mandates masks in public
This is Pels Talk. Save that shite for the poliboard or sadly what used to be the OT. There is only one team to show allegiance to here, the Pelicans. Whether you’re on team Kill Grandma or team Kill The Economy doesn’t matter, we don’t want to know. This board and this team are supposed to be an escape from those other toxic discussions.

And this post isn’t aimed only at you. A lot of people have been having political discussions here. It’s near impossible not to the way the world is. But we need to at least try and do it so that when basketball returns we can discuss the Pels without having our political views intertwined. If you want to knee jerk react to a poster based on their personal views it should be because you think they’re an idiot for wanting or not wanting to trade Jrue or Fire Gentry.

This is a thread about the restart of the NBA and the state of Florida. What would you prefer us to discuss in this thread? You can choose not to click this particular thread and make team related discussion if you’d like.

I know it’s hard to avoid, that’s why I haven’t said anything before. But look at the post I replied to. It’s not discussing the issue, it’s pure name calling and one-upsmanship over politics. That’s just not good for the long term health of this board.

NEW: Florida has “all the markings of the next large epicenter” of #coronavirus transmission, with the risk being the “worst it has ever been” according to new projections by scientists at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania.


They’ve been pushing this narrative since the entire process started fwiw. We’ve remained really consistent throughout at my hospital and we’re in one of the worst counties in the state in terms of raw “new cases”.

In reality we’re still at 55-60% capacity and over half of our 25-35 covids are elderly folks with minimal symptoms from memory care units that we simply don’t have a discharge destination for. The other half move in and out pretty quickly.

COVID patients are now 5 times less likely to require hospitalization than originally.

Even in spots running low on ICU beds, it's reported not filled with COVID patients. As you can see see in the article, it shows that most are running at their normal capacity.

I mean the virus could have potentially weakened a little bit but that is only hearsay that would have to require unsupported leaps based on one anecdote right now, more likely nothing magical has really changed in that regard. We test more so more people without major symptoms turn up positive. And when you do turn up positive you get some care. Thus your seeing more low symptom patients but your hospitalization rate reduces. This was always known, just not verified until this country could test more.

Hospitalizations/deaths lag spikes in new cases, for obvious reasons.

Being at 75% to 90%(as the article indicates like I’ve told you before this varies from city and county to city and county) capacity at the beginning of a new spike is not a good sign when you are seeing exponential growth return. I mean what magical formula do you propose to stem the new spike so that the capacity isn’t near 100% in a month and hospitals are having to go back into emergency mode to combat it?

You do realize that Disney is not necessarily representative of Orange County? You literally have an area the size of a small Country that you can keep completely isolated away from that?

Virus isn't a hoax if you knew a few people who were hospitalized.

the plan to isolate teams And no fans should make FL cases irrelevant unless they interact with the public.
