Dr. Anthony Fauci issued another warning on Sunday to dismiss the urge to wear masks, create social distance, and gather for the holidays – or face a winter of staggering infections, hospitals, and even deaths. He blamed the families gathered before Thanksgiving for the latest round of holiday travel and disappointing figures.
“We unfortunately expect that we can see more growth than before next week,” Fauci said on “Meet the Press”. “I don’t want to scare people, except we won’t be late to do anything about it.”
Colorado Government. Jared Polis and First Gentleman Marlon Rees have tested positive for COVID-19.

An Oregon mink farm has reported an outbreak of COVID-19 among animals and workers. Oregon Department of Agriculture spokesman Andrea Cantu-Shomas, citing federal health privacy regulations, said which county the farm is in or how many workers tested positive. The farm has about 12,000 animals, she said.
The spread of cultivated land has been reported in many US states and countries. Earlier this month, Denmark announced it would kill all 17 million minks gathered there after confirmation, with 12 people infected with a mutated strain of COVID-19 that had spread from human to human. That stretch has not been found elsewhere.
Oregon has the fourth largest farming industry in the nation after Wisconsin, Utah and Michigan. Outbreaks have occurred on mink farms in all three other states. State and national environmental groups are raising the alarm about the potential infection, Oregon’s mink industry, Statesman Journal, part of the USA Today Network, previously reported.

A dangerous fantasy has made its way through social media and American politics, the idea that COVID-19 is really only a threat to the elderly or those with a serious, chronic disease. For those young adults who doubt their vulnerability to the epidemic, “I would invite them to visit our ICU and witness the many tragedies of young people infected with COVID,” Daniel S. Talmore, president of anesthesia, critical care and pain. Medication at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
“Many have died and many will die. In addition, healthy people are inadvertently spreading COVID to the elderly, who, in turn, become quite ill and are at high risk for death.” Nina Shapiro is a professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Experts said on Friday that coronovar test numbers had made the country’s response to the epidemic uncertain until next week, with experts saying fewer people were tested during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and that the testing site would be few. Observe the hours.
“I just hope that people don’t misinterpret the numbers and think there wasn’t a big boom as a result of Thanksgiving, and then make Christmas and Hanukkah and other travel plans,” Dr. Said Lena Wayne, a professor at George Washington University and an emergency physician.
A similar pattern occurs over several weekends. Because some testing centers, labs, and state offices are closed on Saturdays and Sundays, COVID case numbers often fall every Sunday and Monday, peaking only on Tuesdays.
Professor and Head of Infectious Diseases at the University of Nebraska Medical Center of Omaha, Drs. Mark Rupp said the impact of Thanksgiving is likely to be an enhanced version of the weekend’s data. Thursday’s holiday would exacerbate record-keeping discrepancies over the long weekend, artificially disappointing the reported numbers for four or five days, before the test results took hold.
Johns Hopkins University reported more than 2 million trials a few days before thanksgiving as people were prepared to travel, but on Thanksgiving the number dropped to less than 1.2 million trials. Has gone. The latter number, as well as the positive case number, had fallen by about the third Friday, and may be adjusted as more results return.
