Coronavirus Update From A Carmel Caregiver

There were 282 new cases reported in Monterey County through November 25, bringing the total to 14,651.  Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, this is the freshest data put out by the County.  There were four new COVID-19 cases, and no new deaths.  There were over 103K new coronavirus cases nationwide, bringing the total to 13.039 million.  Those are the official numbers.  However, the CDC came out with a report today saying that they believe that about 53 million Americans had been infected by the end of September, due to the fact that many people have no symptoms and don’t get tested.  That’s a scary number.  In California there are almost 1.2 million cases now, and 19,033 deaths.

Monterey, CA Nursing Home Cases Of Coronavirus Exploding

The number of COVID-19 cases in nursing homes across the nation are exploding, and both Monterey and Santa Cruz counties have been no exception.  Despite federal efforts to shield residents through aggressive testing and visitor restrictions, these don’t appear to be working.  Federal data shows that there were 10,279 COVID-19 cases during the week of November, the last week the data has been reported.  The number surpassed the previous record of 9,903 cases in late July, according to the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living.  “We have been begging people the last eight months to wear a mask, socially distance and be careful,” said Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of AHCA/NCAL.  “Unfortunately, the public has not listened and or complied.  Please, be safe!

Monterey, CA Hospitals, Nursing Homes Struggle With COVID-19

COVID-19 deaths among nursing home residents are surging and hospitals are overwhelmed with new coronavirus cases which is causing staff shortages, particularly in rural hospitals.  Believe it or not, Monterey County is considered rural, with much of the South County spread out and this is where the majority of COVID-19 cases are occurring.  We have had nursing home outbreaks in Carmel, Monterey, Salinas and Watsonville.  “Nursing homes are not isolated from what happens in the community,” Carrie Henning-Smith, an associate professor at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, told The Wall Street Journal. Facilities in rural counties reported 18% of nursing home COVID-19 deaths in the week ended November 1, although they housed only 10% of the overall population.  Please, please, take this season off and call off Thanksgiving with friends and family.  Many health officials are extremely concerned that this holiday season is going to cause a new surge in cases.
