33 residents and staff of a nursing home in Cape Cod test positive for COVID



Maria: Variable Delta now accounts for 83% of new COVID cases in the US Here to answer your questions Dr. Todd Ellerin, MD, chief of infectious diseases at Stowe Shore Health. Thank you for joining us. Three weeks ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the delta variant (delta) accounted for about half of the numbers nationwide, so the jump to 83% represents a sharp increase. How does this risk change the risk now for unvaccinated people? >> Maria, yeah, it’s the vast majority of cases now, and cases have climbed. Yesterday there were 55,000 cases in the US, 6,00 deaths, and the numbers are going wrong and going wrong in Massachusetts, as well. All we have to do is face the virus. This means the tendency to vaccinate as many people as possible. It’s not too late yet. I’d like to ask people who haven’t yet been vaccinated to try to accept trust because of mistrust and know that this vaccine can really save their lives. ED: We hear a lot about these rare penetration infections, especially locally in places like the county. Does this mean the health risks of vaccinators are increasing, or? To >> What we know about this variant is that it is more contacting and that the vaccine reduces its effectiveness against infection. The virus has appeared on the back of your nose, you can pass it on to HEOTR PEOE, pl but if you have been vaccinated, the risk is much lower. The good news is that the less quickly you are admitted to the hospital, you are more likely to become seriously ill, and you are more likely to die. So we hear more issues – we expect to see that. Hopefully they don’t end up in the hospital. MAA: RI I think a lot of people think you get vaccinated, it’s back to normal, there are no masks, no orders to stay home, it’s being lifted, no travel restrictions. I think it’s good, here we go, we’ve turned this corner – but b normal, is it further? — right Now? Still confident we can get there? >> I think we can get there. You are right. We are not back to normal. The recent recurring events are alarming. But remember, the kids will be back in the classroom. Yes, they may come back to the classroom with masks, and they may be both vaccinated and unvaccinated, but I guess the rooms are open, right? So we may be masked for more indoor spaces, but hopefully the convenience is throughout – restaurants, gym will be open as well. So I think things are better. I think that’s the worst that I find in us. But with this, we must be realistic. We’re seeing SN IINT ISRAEL, UK, now US – Variant Delta damaged, we’re seeing the effects now. ED: I’ve been on the front line of this pandemic since day one. What do you like – like for you personally? To see the case numbers go up again? I can hear your voice because I listen to you. >> A DEEP S – DEEP SIGH, ED, I NE MEDORE YOGA. >> A DEEP S – DEEP SIGH, ED, I NE MEDORE YOGA. >> A DEEP S – DEEP SIGH, ED, I NE MEDORE YOGA. I wanted cases to go to zero in the US, in Massachusetts, and East there. We talked about a cat-and-mouse game, and that’s what we see here. We get people vaccinated, but the virus is a metamorphosis. For me, I think the key is that Gosmat wants me to urge people to please them, when you know you have a molecular shield that can protect against the virus, when you know the country is still not around the world % of adults in the US are still not immune, This makes me want to help them. I don’t know exactly how to do it at this point. ED: Thank you, T.

33 residents and staff of a nursing home in Cape Cod test positive for COVID


The Department of Public Health said a Massachusetts nursing home has reported that 33 residents and staff working at the facility have contracted COVID-19 over the past 10 days. Maplewood at Mayflower Place in West Yarmouth reported its first positive test for COVID on July 10, with the number of cases increasing to 33 as of July 19. DPH said a total of 24 residents and 9 employees have tested positive for the coronavirus. “DPH has been actively monitoring and assisting in the response to the facility,” a statement from the health agency said. The state health agency said it was on-site and demonstrating ongoing daily support, which includes testing and PPE supplies, and the Public Health Department said residents who tested positive had received treatments with monoclonal antibodies. “The majority of the population has been vaccinated and is asymptomatic or showing mild symptoms. All infected employees are in stable condition,” the statement from the Public Health Department said. The state health department said it also visited several long-term care facilities across Cape Cod, and provided a voluntary infection control and response assessment. “The purpose of these visits is to assess infection control practices and provide expert guidance and technical assistance,” the Ministry of Public Health said. The Department of Public Health said the majority of nursing homes across the Commonwealth continue to report no new cases in residents or staff. According to the state, only six facilities reported having new positive employees and/or residents last week. All six of these facilities reported only one or two cases within a seven-day period. As of June 12, the Department of Public Health said, 88% of nursing home residents have been fully vaccinated, and 73% of staff members have been fully vaccinated.
