What meds and protocol treatment are local hospitals giving to patients. Please report this Tallahassee Reports.
Is ivermectin being used in local hospitals????
Any correlation between hospitalizations and first dose COVID vaccines?
The hospitalizations are a bit puzzling. The overall state hospitalizations have been trending down for two weeks and never reached their July/August peaks. However Leon county is now nearly 60% higher than the hospitalizations were back in the summer.
I am curious why the larger increase in hospitalizations? Are these people with more comorbidities? Are these people not seeking medical care until the virus has progressed – so they are not getting early treatment? What kind of population? More elderly, economic disparities, specific outbreak (such as nursing home)?
But the mask mandate from March was supposed to flatten the curve!?
