    New Harvard Study: Nearly Half Of 2021 COVID Hospitalizations Weren’t For Severe Cases

    A newly released study has found that nearly half of those hospitalized for COVID-19 in 2021 had been admitted for another reason entirely, or were mild or asymptomatic for the respiratory virus.

    Conducted by a team of researchers from Harvard Medical School, Tufts Medical Center, and the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, the analysis examined electronic records for nearly 50,000 COVID hospital admissions at more than 100 VA hospitals across the country.
    “The study found that from March 2020 through early January 2021—before vaccination was widespread, and before the Delta variant had arrived—the proportion of patients with mild or asymptomatic disease was 36 percent,” the report read. “From mid-January through the end of June 2021, however, that number rose to 48 percent. In other words, the study suggests that roughly half of all the hospitalized patients showing up on COVID-data dashboards in 2021 may have been admitted for another reason entirely, or had only a mild presentation of disease.”

    “As we look to shift from cases to hospitalizations as a metric to drive policy and assess level of risk to a community or state or country, we should refine the definition of hospitalization,” she said. “Those patients who are there with rather than from COVID don’t belong in the metric.”

    ... regardless of how patients get to COVID Emergency wards, they have to be treated and use often scarce medical resources. Patients who do not get vaccinated risk both long term COVID and harsh insurance premiums. It is just not worth it not to get vaccinated over some obsolete political belief.

    The data from this study covers nearly the entire course of the pandemic. You would know that if you had actually read the post, which we all know you didn't.

    Re: Latest on the Corona Virus

    Report from ND. As of Monday, no icu or inpatient beds available in Bismarck-Mandan area (pop approx 100,000). While in Fargo-Moorhead-W.Fargo area 7 icu and 9 inpatient beds. available (pop approx 250,000). Entire state of ND (pop 770,000) has 15 icu beds still available.


    Just wondering, what would you do if the icu beds and inpatient beds are all taken up and you just got into a major car accident which required surgery?
