In 1918, Missouri prepared for the Spanish Flu, taking measures to halt its spread, learning lessons from Philadelphia, which was hit earlier, and harder, having rejected similar tactics. This time, as Ed Yong captures, Missouri followed a different path. theatlantic.com/health/archive…

🚨I wrote about what Delta is doing to Missouri. Some hospitals have accrued as many COVID-19 patients in 5 weeks as they got in 5 months last year. Almost all those patients are unvaccinated. HCWs can't believe they're being overwhelmed *again*. 1/ theatlantic.com/health/archive…

Now for the preventable phase of the pandemic. ICUs in Missouri fill with unvaccinated patients in their 20s thru 40s, many with no underlying health problems. The dozen or so exceptions are vaccinated elderly or immunocompromised people. By @edyong209 theatlantic.com/health/archive…

India is proof that the Delta variant can inflict great damage @edyong209 is spot on! "Delta can do a lot in six weeks" even in the United States, as seen in Missouri theatlantic.com/health/archive…

When I say the pandemic is ongoing some think I mean bc it's raging in other countries. True -- but I'm talking about the U.S. "The hospital is now busier than at any previous point during the pandemic...We only get beds available when someone dies..” theatlantic.com/health/archive…

“I work in the ICU, where it’s like a war zone, and I go out in public and everything’s normal,” she said. “You see death and suffering, and then you walk into the grocery store and get resistance. It feels like we’re being ostracized by our community.” theatlantic.com/health/archive…

'This dramatic surge is due to the super-contagious Delta var, which now accounts for 95% of Greene County’s new cases(...) It is spreading easily because people have ditched their masks, crowded into indoor spaces, resumed travel & resisted vaccinations.' theatlantic.com/health/archive…

It's déjà-vu all over again. For healthcare workers. For @edyong209 writing this story. Except this time there is a vaccine. We have a way out. We just need to weed out villainous politicians who use misinformation as a means of amassing power. theatlantic.com/health/archive…

“We only get beds available when someone dies, which happens several times a day." Places with low vaccination rates face the likelihood of new Covid outbreaks—and continued death and disruption. @edyong209 reports from Missouri: bit.ly/3kyZOJ9
