    Hannity

    Trump “gave us a heck of an economy”... On the back of a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit, and tax giveaway to corporations that used it to buy back their own stock and artificially drive up the stock market. And on the back of a 50 billion dollar and counting bribe to farmers to make up for his...

    The 1% blunder: How a simple but fatal math mistake by US Covid-19 experts caused the world to panic

    You are wasting your time. A subset of the population would rather read the Russian Times than learn about population health. Remember when people screamed "death panals" because Obama wanted to reimburse clinicians when they discussed end of life care with patients? Now that party doesn't care...

    Big 10 getting burned in SEC country

    Unfortunately I, and all other healthcare workers, don’t have the luxury of hiding or living in complete denial of the situation. Asking for a friend: So we should only care about people under 50? The needle keeps moving. At first it was only the elderly that we didn’t care about...

    Big 10 getting burned in SEC country

    How do you define "sick folks?" (I'm not trying to be inflammatory) Risk factors for a severe covid infection include a BMI>30 and Type 2 Diabetes. Over 30 million Americans have DM2, and over 70 million are obese (BMI>30). I'm wondering how many on this board , some of who think this is a hoax...

    MAC Conference now has canceled their football season

    There is also the placebo effect. Give people a sugar pill/ phony injection, and well over 20 percent will complain of substantial side effects. Also works the opposite way.

    Big Ten Meeting this morning - cancelling season?

    Which medical experts signed the letter, vs random clinicians who signed a letter passed around on the internet? Very big difference.

    He has covid induced myocarditis. What other facts do people not want to hear?

    Rashod Bateman not playing this year due to covid

    I'm guessing this is more about not wanting to get injured during a watered down season (if there is any season at all) than a fear of covid.

    OT: 10" of rain in places just north of ONeill and Spencer NE in South Dakota it looks like.

    I was not responding to you at all. Just responding to the poster who asked about the guy in the video. And just A benign FYI: the twin cities surge happened before the riots. We were lucky there were limited Violent injuries from the protests, because the hospitals were already full...

    OT: 10" of rain in places just north of ONeill and Spencer NE in South Dakota it looks like.

    Within 60 secs you can tell you shouldn’t listen to one thing he says. When asked for credentials, he doesn’t give any important information (training!) He says hydroxychloroquine works (no it doesn’t). He says budesonide is the reason other countries have low mortality rates (sigh). Save your...

    So much for summer football practice in SEC

    I guess Arizona activating Crisis Standards of Care is also part of the vast conspiracy... https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/as-coronavirus-rebounds-more-patients-are-being-hospitalized-thats-a-bad-sign/2020/07/02/62f60720-bc4f-11ea-80b9-40ece9a701dc_story.html

    So much for summer football practice in SEC

    For the last time: death certificates have nothing to do with hospital reimbursement. Hospitals are reimbursed based on a clinician’s discharge summary at the time the patient is discharged. Specifically, billing is based on a section called the problem list, where either confirmed medical...

    Fauci: Back to saying No Football in the Fall

    Fauci: Back to saying No Football in the Fall

    “...football may not happen this fall”. There is nothing controversial or political about this. He is stating what is blatantly obvious. If there is a second wave that coincides with Influenza in the fall, hospitals will not have enough ICU beds. How about we all do the one simple thing that...

    U of Houston suspending all athletic workouts

    seriously, what is your problem? Do you think I’m going to give you identifying information on a football board? I’m a board certified physician (all you need to know) who takes care of individual Covid pts, and is tasked with coordinating the care of all Covid pts in our system. “I don’t have...

    U of Houston suspending all athletic workouts

    I’m a physician, in charge of taking care of over 150 covid pts to date. At one point we had 70 covid pts in the hospital and were out of ICU beds. A St. Paul school board member died this week (at a different hospital) at the age of 30. Absolutely, the biggest risk is for those over 50. But for...

    U of Houston suspending all athletic workouts

    With all due respect, you are completely out of your element. Covid can destroy a patient’s lungs, and we’ve seen it in patients less than 35 years old without major health problems, whose other organs are functioning relatively normally.
