Louisiana Governor Says State’s Coronavirus Trajectory ‘Same As Italy’s’

Published

Brand new predictive models for the coronavirus outbreak in the state of Louisiana have demonstrated that they are on the same trajectory as the country of Italy, which means they could be facing extremely high numbers of cases that could potentially overwhelm their healthcare system, according to Gov. John Bel Edwards.

The governor went on to say that if residents of Louisiana followed the guidelines put out by the state and federal government for mitigating the spread of the illness, the “worst case scenario” could be avoided.

The guidelines Edwards mentioned include avoiding large groups, staying home as much as possible, and practicing social distancing when you interact with other people.

“Our trajectory is basically the same as what they had in Italy,” Edwards said.

Italy’s COVID-19 death toll exceeds 3,400, and health care providers are being forced to choose which patients will receive intensive care based on their survival chances, according to published reports.

Louisiana, particularly the New Orleans area, has one of the highest per-capita infection rates in the country. Edwards on a conference call with the president and other governors Thursday asked for more federal help in increasing the state’s medical capacity.

The Louisiana Department of Health’s “strike team” is working with providers to increase capacity, Edwards said. Strategies may include reallocating medical staff who are no longer performing elective procedures and renovating and reopening closed facilities.

Gov. Edwards said that the predictive models can changed based on the rate of growth of the coronavirus’ spread and how many individuals are sick with it and need to be hospitalized.

While the numbers of cases are expected to explode in the short term due to more available testing, it’s important to note those infections actually happened several days ago.

In other words, people just need to stay inside and ride this out for awhile so we can nip this in the bud and get back to normal that much faster. Here’s hoping the folks in Louisiana do just that.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

Published

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

Published

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
