In the summer we were doing pretty well numbers wise, even NYC didn’t put such a mandate in until later. I do think she waited too long, so now it won’t be in effect until after the holiday crunch.

Just hit record hospitalizations for the pandemic. Hospitals are postponing elective surgeries.

Thanks a lot, unvaccinated people. This was avoidable... again.

Mobile morgues are back for the dead body overflow.


Repositioning.  Mobile morgues usually hang out in Arby's parking lots for rapid service.

A friend's dad had a health event last night and is currently unresponsive. He's currently in an ambulance on his way to another hospital because the first two don't have any beds.

Pandemic is over though, right guys? Be careful out there.

It's not over, but with new cases declining significantly, it makes sense to lessen mitigation tactics.  And lessening those isn't going to have any impact on current hospitalizations.

And if cases go up again, mitigation efforts can resume.

Unvaccinated still hurting their fellow Americans with their "personal choices."

I hope your friend's dad recovers.

Lessen mitigation tactics while hospitals are full with the plague rats, negatively impacting responsible Americans got it.

Why continue to mitigate if it doesn't impact hospitalizations?

Do you think masks have no impact on the transmissibility of covid? And do you think that vaccines have no impact the severity of the infection and therefore the hospitalization rates of those infected?

Hopefully your friend's dad is doing better and will get through it, but anecdotal stories are never a good barometer.

Illinois currently has about 3000 ICU beds.  Of that, less than 450 are occupied by COVID patients. Ventilator stats are even lower.

He could have just had really bad luck, but its not like hospitals are overflowing with severe COVID related emergency patients, hence the lessening of restrictions.

I think when case rates are decreasing like they are, removing certain mitigation factors will have little negative impacts.

We have literal maps of where ICUs are full and where people are having "bad luck" leading to deaths. State-level ICU metrics don't make a lot of sense when hospitals being full are a local issue.

My friend's dad got a bed at the 3rd hospital he was taken to, it took 12 hours for the hospitals in the area to find him a bed because they're surprisingly bad at solving this problem still. Staffing and communication problems, if I had to guess, since all hospitals aren't a part of a system.

What part of Chicago do you think he lives in? The unlucky part probably?



The city/state have per-hospital data live on the internet, it was just easier for me to grab the NYT aggregate chart. It would make sense to me to keep restrictions in place regionally until hospitals have beds. Far southern Illinois is in way worse shape than the Chicago burbs.
