The Golden State
与此相反,在威斯康星州接踵而至最高法庭解除后督埃弗斯留在家里的秩序混乱,在加利福尼亚州重启正在逐渐实现。截至今日报道洛杉矶时报,根据自己的能力,以证实他们已经包含了冠状病毒的传播,该州的58个县中有20人已获准重开高级餐厅和购物商场。另一方面,人口较多的县还没有作出此认证。事实上,在洛杉矶县,感染人数现已超过35,000时,其大约是整个国家的一半。同时,橙,滨江,圣贝纳迪诺和圣迭戈县正在努力打造一个联盟,游说州长纽森许可重新地方经济,尽管由于一些地区,如奥兰治县,已经经历了最高日检测计数流感大流行开始。有趣的是,根据玩酷世代导演医疗保健机构,越来越多的不完全归功于新的测试,而相反,出现在养老院和监狱人口将出现。这张照片,从MSN消息,表明亨廷顿海滩,那里的访问是有限的,前往沙滩,显然是观察全州范围内的协议。

Lessons from Health-care Workers
AVD board member, Emer Gunter, called our attention to an interesting piece in the New Yorker, entitled “Amid the Coronavirus Crisis, a Regimen for Reentry,” in which surgeon Atul Gawande describes the four part strategy that he has successfully implemented at his hospitals for protecting against the coronavirus, namely – hygiene, distancing, self-screening and masks. Starting with hygiene - handwashing is essential to keeping droplets from transferring from surfaces to nose, mouth and eyes. He recommends that we wash our hands every time we go into or out of a group environment and every couple of hours, plus disinfect shared surfaces.

Given that the primary mode of transmission is not surface contact (at 6%), but respiratory droplets (94%), however, it is also essential to practice social distancing from potential sources. In addition, as a way of protecting others from our own potential infection, we add an additional layer of protection or “source control” through face covers. Even though we do not have the benefit of surgical masks, Dr. Gawande assures us that if 60% of the population wore masks that were just 60% effective (which a well-made cotton mask is), the epidemic could be stopped. Add to that the practice of self-screening. Before leaving the house, whether for work or otherwise, check yourself for any symptoms – cough, fever, shortness of breath, loss taste or sense of smell. If you have any of these, then it is best to stay at home. In closing, Dr. Gawande observes that the fourpart strategy has worked at his hospitals and, if widely practiced, could facilitate reopening our states.

A Day in the Life
As evidenced by real events from my own life, you will see that anyone can put Dr. Gawande’s advice into practice. Hygiene – after leaving a scintillating (and, I might add, moderately lengthy) meeting, I washed my hands. Then some equipment rental guy appeared in the lobby and handed me his business card – so I washed my hands again. Distancing – this morning, I was standing on my own circular floor sticker waiting to order an almond croissant at Moulin Café, when the guy behind me kept edging up on my heels and craning over my shoulder – so I stepped forward and kicked my toe into the display case. Face coverings – I wore a signature Arun Malik FEMA mask for the entire duration of today’s business managers’ call and lived to tell about it. Self-screening – even as I write this, I am checking for symptoms – and, as James Brown would say, “I feel good.” Enjoy your weekend. – TD
