    Hand washing, vaccines, social distancing, and talk are all cheap so they are the perfect things for elected people to promote.

    reminds me to the old revere saying at effectmeasure : little evidence
    that flu spreads by hands, touching.

    Then we heard that the common cold often does. Cold viruses are infective on hands for hours
    (flu only 5min)

    But there are many different common cold viruses. Hand hygiene seems to be less important for
    coronaviruses or at least sarbecoviruses or at least SARS2
    Despite WHO's handwashing campaign.

    I wonder how many people in treatment for depression died because of this policy at some hospitals?

    https://www.mdpi.com/2077-0383/11/1/70/htm
    Another important clinical issue is whether SSRIs are continued or discontinued when a COVID-19 patient is hospitalized or admitted to an ICU. SSRIs are frequently discontinued in the ICU patient [42,43]. There is literature showing that discontinuation results in adverse ICU outcomes [42,43]. SSRIs are often inadvertently discontinued because they are not considered important in acute disease. This can cause increased agitation among these patients and need for additional sedation, which may in turn depress respiration.

    "Currently have a positive 4 month old, 4 year old, and a 8 year old. Some will be admitted to the hospital."

    That covers a lot of ground. Was COVID the reason they are in the ER? When details are omitted from data and the wrap is a vaccine commercial...

    The list keeps growing… to my friends in healthcare, best of luck. To everyone else, if you feel sick it’s probably #COVID19, skip the holiday plans. Yes, testing is limited but pls don’t come to the ED just purely for testing, we are swamped.

    Working Christmas Eve in the ED right now. Everyone has #COVID19. Currently have a positive 4 month old, 4 year old, and a 8 year old. Some will be admitted to the hospital. Be safe this holiday, get vaccinated.

    Sean Payton is COVID positive, Dennis Allen to serve as Saints head coach against Tampa

    BY LUKE JOHNSON | STAFF WRITER DEC 17, 2021 - 11:59 AM Comments
    ...

    Payton missed Wednesday's practices and team meetings with an illness, but he had not yet tested positive. He conducted all his usual work virtually from home as defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen handled the team's meetings.

    He returned to work in his usual capacity Thursday. It is not yet clear when Payton submitted a positive test.

    This is the second time Payton has contracted COVID. He was one of the first people in the NFL to test positive back in March of last year. Payton said at the time he endured mild symptoms, including chills, aches and a low-grade fever.

    Columnist Jeff Duncan contributed to this report.
