How do you know these cases aren’t also counted in the COVID-19 mortality numbers? Given that pneumonias are a common complication of COVID-19, I would think many of these encounters also have a COVID-19 diagnosis. The numbers can be skewed either way. For example: a patient who develops a bacterial pneumonia, secondary to COVID-19, and ends up expiring from respiratory failure, organ failure, or sepsis. Depending on how the diagnoses are coded and what is listed as the cause of death, the data can reflect multiple situations unless the methodology is clearly represented.

Because when I want my objective medical commentary, I look to Howard Dean.

The #’s below the tweet were from the CDC. He was offering his opinion. The increase in pneumonia doesn’t make any sense. You have any explanations?

I did a deep dive into prior years vs current year deaths in the US. Beginning of May we were up about 70,000 deaths from prior years. Covid numbers seemed accurate if you factor in fewer fatal car crashes or gun fights at Chuck E. Cheese.

That’s Reddit not the CDC website

Could this be from a lot of people with pneumonia being afraid to get treatment/couldn’t get treatment because of Covid?

Doubt it. If anything, people with pneumonia would be more likely to seek out testing and treatment because they’d want to know if it’s COVID related and they would get high priority in hospitals because they are likely sicker than your average flu patients and the first thing sensible doctors would do is to screen them for COVID (if tests were available).

Any chance this is just an interpretation of data where multiple causes are listed? IE: pneumonia is listed 1st and Covid further down the list? Or is Covid not listed at all?

Ah Twitter! our generations source of truth.

Sorry OP - saw that you’ve posted the actual CDC data source. My comment was referring to what looked like twitter/reddit post without data source. Had nothing to do with fake news or not, I’m just not in the habit of taking a Twitter seriously because of the amount of misinformation and false numbers. This includes our president.

So to your final sentence, yes KPMG keeps hiring the finest. People who like I do not take everything on twitter as the gospel, and question authenticity from both sides.

I just swore into my state's bar. Law is my second career (I'm in my early 30's). I had a clerkship in a criminal court lined up that was rescinded because of a COVID hiring freeze. I'm looking for a job as an associate somewhere, any practice area (though criminal law is my ideal area). Does anybody have any tips for a brand new attorney on how to start? I'm used to just sending my resume and a cover letter to potential employers from my time in my previous field; should I be networking more?

Is moving to the East Village or LES worth it now with COVID? My partner and I are introverts and don’t mind the lack of night life. Our appeal to the area is being surrounded by young people, the availability of nice restaurants for take out or dine outdoors, nice parks and crossing off our bucket list to live in the city. We also don’t mind if the neighborhood will be a little quiet, but I’ve heard there’s more homeless people, shady people roaming around outside now? Appreciate any insight!

I’ve been fully vaccinated since early this year (Pfizer), and tested positive for Covid-19 three days ago. I’m laid up in bed feeling terrible and quarantined so that my wife (who tested negative) and two kids don’t catch it from me. Remember: be safe. Don’t relax yet. The vaccines are wonderful, but we can still get it and pass it on.
