When Did Delta Spike Start In Louisiana?
Do we have any idea when the Delta spike started in Louisiana? It appears that in India and the UK, the Delta wave lasted about 45 days before cases/hospitalizations dropped dramatically. From some information that I was able to piece together, it seems like Louisiana cases started spiking around June 15, which would put us at the 45 day mark now.

I personally think we will be through this spike in another couple of weeks.

How would you know? They can't test for specific variants.

It's worth mentioning, they can't differentiate between COVID, the flu and the common cold, either...

According to data early July; however, I feel that might be somewhat misleading since testing right before that was really low. Many may have gotten it and just thought it was unrelated to Covid bc Covid #s had been extremely low for some time.

Not sure when but from 14 days ago cases are up 288%, hospitalizations are up 186% and deaths 58%

Seems this new variant is not nearly as dangerous.

That's what I'm asking. But I would assume it is pretty obvious that the hospitals started to filled up around the same time, which would be a good a good indication of something happening. I know the hospital that my wife works at went from zero COVID patients to a full hospital, almost over night.

Obviously not you, since you took time out of your day to comment on this thread. But you don't care, AT ALL.

More transmissible, but lower hospitalization rate, and death rate looks to be much lower. See how that all looks in another two weeks, but I think you are right.

who cares. I only have heard of this covid delta crap but never have seen it. If you must tell me about it then it can't be to bad.

Now. Let's talk about heart disease, homicides, suicides, overdoses.
Hell.... I'd even settle for mortality rates somewhat tied to comorbidities or age (preferably both).

This whole narrative has shifted each and every time that the existing metric has fallen off a cliff.
The lack of transparency and obvious political bias is the core issue.

You don't know what your talking about. My daughter tested positive Tuesday and they asked me to bring her back to the Dr so they could do another test to send to the state to test for variant.

ETA. They also tested for flu. Flu was negative.

The CDC is recommending clinics that have quick testing to transition to a test that can differentiate between covid and influenza.

LINK to CDC testing change

"CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses."

This is likely the paragraph they were referencing.
