Pandemic Is Overwhelming U.S. Public Health Capacity In Many States. What Now?

Testing, contact tracing and isolation are the tactics being used successfully to crush outbreaks in countries such as South Korea and Germany. But those places never had the level of case surges that many U.S. states are now experiencing.

"When you have something like this happening, there's no way that traditional testing and tracing is going to have any meaningful impact," Osterholm says. "I liken it to trying to plant your petunias in the middle of a Category 5 hurricane."

Others agree. At this point, there are just too many new infections occurring too quickly for underfunded, understaffed public health departments to effectively use testing and contract tracing, according to Dr. Jeffrey Engel, the senior adviser for the COVID-19 response for the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists.

"It's just this massive effort," he says. "It's just not feasible."

Wonder where the hairdresser got these conspiracy theories. Whistle This is Canada!!!



Russian Facebook bots spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt.

I had a family member recently tell me that "covid19 wasn't that bad."

"Really?" I replied. "There was a news article about a young woman who needed a lung transplant because her lungs were destroyed by the coronavirus. Her lungs looked like they had been boiled in acid."

Healthy lungs vs. smoker's lungs.
