Danbury Hospital is an area hospital...

More from the article...

...Cases are expected to rise locally, said Dr. Paul Nee, an infectious disease specialist at Danbury Hospital. With that could bring more patients hospitalized with COVID, further burdening hospital staff who are burnt out by the pandemic and struggling with staff and supply shortages, he said.

"The nurses, the doctors, the COVID floors, they've been dealing with this since March (2020), and they've really hung in there," Nee said. "They're troopers. They're really working hard. Help us help them. If can prevent one patient from coming in, two patients, it makes a big deal for everybody."...

One thing I have noticed in this area...

When I go to the supermarket (to buy cream cheese :) ) there seems to be more of the patrons wearing masks. And distancing seems to be more on the mind of folk.

It is kinda weird, the interactions. But the focus seems to be maintaining a distancing.

And that is cool.

And very odd to describe.

But the folk of my town seem to want to work together to fight this virus.

No more overcrowding problem.

"This thing is going away, it will go away like things go away. My view is that schools should be open. If you look at children, children are almost, I would almost say definitely, but almost immune from this disease. So few. Hard to believe. I don't know how you feel about it but they have much stronger immune systems than we do somehow for this. They don't have a problem." - Repubican Orange Jesus reassuring his base of covidiot followers that eventually the kids would become vulnerable if they just kept listening to him and not Fauci.
