Covid-19 and the Rural Fear of Taking Advantage – The New York Times

Posted: at 3:53 am

CLINTON, Ark. After a brief shutdown to hinder the coronaviruss spread, Arkansas began opening up, slowly and cautiously, on May 11. Businesses are placing limits on the number of customers they will serve at any one time, and social distancing and mask wearing is still required in establishments like restaurants. The states Republican governor, Asa Hutchinson, has been critical of businesses and customers that dont follow these rules. Even so, Arkansas has seen a second peak of coronavirus infection, as cases surge especially among younger people and the Latino population in northwestern counties. On Thursday, Governor Hutchinson announced the largest single-day increase in community transmission 261 cases.

Despite this, and despite predictions that the virus will take a crushing toll in rural areas like ours, this part of Arkansas has so far been spared the worst health effects of Covid-19. Van Buren County, where I live, has fewer than 17,000 people and has had only 28 confirmed cases of the coronavirus to date. Two people died, but the rest have recovered. Early cases were concentrated in bigger cities, like Little Rock and a suburb of Memphis, and were disproportionately among black Arkansans. There have been more than 6,500 cases in the state about a fifth of them have been in prisons, and those cases werent even added to official totals at first, all of which is a human rights disaster but most families havent been affected. Any death is a tragedy, but death from Covid-19 hasnt personally touched very many people here. At least not yet.

I moved back here to my hometown two and a half years ago to write a book about it. Since returning, Ive become more active on Facebook, which is both a source of local gossip and official news; county officials and offices often post important updates, especially about the coronavirus outbreak, to their Facebook pages. Im also a member of three local news groups that are a source of insight into how my neighbors think about current events. Ive found that a vast majority of people here approach political issues, whether local or national, with suspicion of taxation and government spending, even when such spending is for their own benefit. This has remained true even during these unprecedented times.

We have been hit with the economic devastation caused by the pandemic. The median household income in the state is $45,726; for the county its $34,428, so there are many people who live paycheck to paycheck. While a large majority of Americans 74 percent support continued efforts to slow the viruss spread, and there are plenty of well-off Americans and business owners eager to get back to work, the divide over whether lockdowns should continue is a strongly partisan one. Many Republicans, including low- and middle-income whites think businesses should reopen now. For the most part, the people Ive spoken to and seen commenting online here accept as a given that the only way to be able to pay their rent or to feed their kids is to return to work: They dont think its possible to protect our health and our economic well-being at the same time.

COVID-19 testing reaches parts of St. Bernard Parish for the first time – WWLTV.com

Posted: at 3:53 am

Its been a steady flow since 7 a.m. and we have already tested at least 50 individuals, said Williams.

NEW ORLEANS Hundreds of people showed up at Corinne Missionary Baptist Church in the eastern St. Bernard town of Violet Saturday for free walk up and drive through testing for COVID-19, a first of its kind for the area, according to Dr. Shondra Williams with InclusivCare, the company contracted to do the testing.

Its been a steady flow since 7 a.m. and we have already tested at least 50 individuals, said Williams.

While there has been testing across Orleans and Jefferson Parishes, this area has not seen a free testing event like this until now, according to Williams.

From what I understand, this is probably the first testing in the area and its of particular interest as the community is beginning to reopen, said Williams. Businesses are moving about and we certainly want to make sure that people have access to testing.

Poorer areas tend to have a harder time fighting the virus. According to census data, the per capita individual income in Violet was just over $13,000 a year and about 21 percent of the population is below the poverty line. Roughly 40 percent of the town is black -- another group hard hit by COVID-19.

Unfortunately, the manifestation of COVID-19 in the African-American community is the result of those predisposed disparities, said Louisiana state senator Joseph Bouie. You know, it includes healthcare, access to a living wage and access to a quality education.

Its a combination of those factors that put this particular population at risk, according to Bouie. He also expects a greater emphasis on healthcare in the future, both at a federal and local level to help people in communities like Violet.

I definitely see it as a teaching moment, if you will, for the nation, said Bouie. It forces us as a community to address the economics, the health issues, the education -- all of those challenges we are now being faced with because of this virus.

President of St. Bernard parishs NAACP Chapter, Kevin Gabriel, helped organize the event.

Its time for people to come out and get tested. We are looking out for the community. This a terrible thing that came up in this nation and its time for all us to come together as one, said Gabriel.

The event was sponsored in part by Corinne Missionary Baptist Church. Pastor John Bailey says a lot of residents have not been tested and that there is a great need in his community.

Well you know you got some people walking around not knowing they have the virus. I am just grateful and I thank the Lord we were able to have this testing site in our parish, said Bailey.

The Crescent River Port Pilots were also at the event to offer free masks. It wasnt their first event.

Weve done this about six times and we continue to want to do it to protect people, said president of the group, Michael Bopp.

More events are being planned in St. Bernard for the future.

103-year-old woman celebrates beating Covid-19 with a cold beer – CNN

Posted: at 3:53 am

When Jennie Stejna tested positive for coronavirus in late April, her family began preparing for the worst, granddaughter Shelley Gunn said.

At one point, her family was told that Stejna had stopped eating and drinking and might not make it through the night. They called her for one last goodbye, Gunn said.

When Gunn's husband, a Navy retiree, asked Stejna if she was ready to pass away, she responded "Hell yeah," according to the family.

"She's always been a feisty woman," Gunn said.

But instead of a grim phone call from Stejna's nursing home, on May 8 they received the news that she had tested negative, and was symptom-free, the family said.

"The nurses came into her room, and she said, "I'm not sick anymore, Get the hell out,'" Gunn said.

The nursing home staff honored Stejna's perseverance with one of her favorite treats -- an ice-cold beer.

"I think it's given everyone a smile and some hope, while it's dark days for everybody," Gunn said.

Bonney Kapp contributed to this report.

About 1% of kids who visited a Seattle hospital in April had been infected with the novel coronavirus, according to the first large-scale survey for antibodies in children. The study also found most of the youngsters developed a robust immune response, an encouraging sign for a future vaccine.Most of the children who tested positive for antibodies had no symptoms of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. That fits with widespread evidence that children are much less likely than adults to become ill or die.

For many protesters in Seattle over the weekend, the outrage over racial injustices outweighed the risk of contracting COVID-19.

That calculus sent people streaming into the streets of downtown Seattle, where they shouted face to face with authorities andpushed into tight crowds, although many wore masks.

Now experts and public health officials are cautioning the large gatheringsthe first of this scale since the pandemic was declared could set back the regions recovery from the novel coronavirus epidemic.

We will need to watch COVID-19 activity closely in King County over the next several weeks, David Postman, Gov. Jay Inslees chief of staff, said in an email. The protests, though, would not affect the countyscurrent application to reopensome parts of the economy, he said.

According to a Bloomberg article, small fitness clubs across Georgia and Oklahoma among the most aggressive U.S. states in reopening their economies are reporting that 75% or more of their customers have returned over past weeks. In most cases, gym owners say their clients are behaving, keeping distances and wiping down their equipment.

While most people desperately yearn for the moment its deemed safe for them to resume their former lives and all that goes with it even traffic jams and endless meetings are bathed in the rosy glow of nostalgia there are outliers who would like things to go on like this for a good long time. Not for them the mix of ennui and dread that characterizes sheltering in place.

They love sheltering in place.

They are, to a person, horrified by what the pandemic has wrought and are humbled by the sacrifices made by those on the front line. They do not, for a minute, minimize what it is going on. But they have, sometimes to their surprise, found contentment and peace in the situation that has been thrust upon them.

If Im honest I dont like leaving home anyway. I dont like crowds. I dont like going to the beach. Thats always been my personality, said New Jersey's Ethan Rasiel. Im Zooming with people and thats good enough for me.

The coronavirus pandemic that brought sports to a standstill for months has everyone wondering what games will be like when spectators are finally allowed back in.

The changes will be big and small, temporary and long-lasting.

Fans could have their every move scrutinized by cameras and lasers. There might be nobody in the next seat to high-five after a touchdown. The idea of passing cash to a beer vendor between innings will be a memory. Temperature screenings and medical checks could be mandatory to get in. By having virtual tickets scanned on their smart phones, fans could be acknowledging the health risk of attending a game while surrendering some of their personal privacy.

It all begs the question: Will fans be able to have any fun?

Learn more about all the changes under consideration and what they mean for sports fans.

One of the first personal protective equipment drone drops in the U.S. took place this month.

The drone was launched by Novant Health, which operates 15 hospitals and close to 700 different facilities in the southeastern U.S. The health care system said it hopes to use regular flights to deliver masks, gowns, gloves and other protective gear.

Protests in cities across the U.S.over repeated racial injustices are raising fears of new coronavirus outbreaks, as thousands of people gather after weeks of social distancing efforts.

We have two crises that are sandwiched on top of one other, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said.

Health experts fear that silent carriers of the virus could unwittingly infect others at protests where people are packed cheek to jowl, many without masks, many chanting, singing or shouting. The virus is dispersed by microscopic droplets in the air when people cough, sneeze, sing or talk.

The coronavirus pandemic's impact may even extend to orcas: With recreational boat traffic in the Salish Sea down due to stay-at-home orders, researchers are investigating how the orcas are responding.

The southern resident orcas hunt by sound, and disturbance and noise caused by boats and vessels form one ofthree main threats to their survival,in addition to lack of adequate chinook salmon (their preferred food)and pollution.

The Northwest whale watch industry is anticipating a restart at some point this summer, with retrofits for social distancing.

Navajo Nation Loses Elders And Tradition To COVID-19 – NPR

Posted: at 3:53 am

Traditional Din medicine practitioner Jeneda Benally, pictured here with her daughter Dahi, is trying to preserve cultural wisdom in danger of being lost during the pandemic. Laurel Morales/KJZZ hide caption

Traditional Din medicine practitioner Jeneda Benally, pictured here with her daughter Dahi, is trying to preserve cultural wisdom in danger of being lost during the pandemic.

In Navajo culture to speak of death is taboo. But since the tribe's coronavirus infection rate has become the highest in the country, they can't help but talk about it.

"It's killing every day," says medicine man Ty Davis, who knows at least five traditional practitioners who have died from COVID-19.

"It put me into shock," he says. "What do we do now? How do we retrieve that knowledge that these elders once knew now that they have died with those ceremonies? How do we get those back?"

Each medicine person specializes in different ceremonies. So when someone dies they take that knowledge with them. Over the last several decades the tribe has gone from a thousand Din or Navajo medicine people to just 300. The coronavirus threatens the few who remain.

Medicine man Avery Denny is attempting to change that trajectory by taking on apprentices where he teaches at Din College on the Navajo Nation.

Professor Avery Denny sings the the Journey Song to college graduates.

"I have great great concerns," Denny says.

Denny says he's up against centuries of colonialism when it comes to preserving Navajo culture and tradition. The federal government forced tribes to relocate, sent Native children to boarding schools where they were beaten for speaking their language for singing their songs.

"Young people are acculturated, assimilated, dominated. They're losing their language and their culture," Denny says.

Denny says white missionaries are also to blame for replacing Navajo religion.

"Christianity is the belief that our people turned to even our leadership so there's no guidance," Denny says. "There's no leader that says, 'OK we'll turn to Navajo values and Navajo Din medicine.'"

For instance, the Navajo president begins each meeting with a Christian prayer even though he also addresses his community in Navajo.

The loss of traditional practitioners is not just a cultural loss but also a personal one for people such as Jeneda Benally, whose aunt recently died from COVID-19.

"I am really emotional about this because it's so painful to lose so many loved ones," she says.

Benally is a traditional practitioner who works alongside her father who was the first medicine man to practice in a Western hospital.

"I felt very early on during this pandemic that I needed to protect my father so that way he can continue to help people in order to protect our future generations," Benally says.

One way she is doing that is working with her brother Clayson to produce youtube videos to share Navajo cultural practices like how to dry farm and how to shear sheep.

The Benallys hope their videos will encourage tribal members to reconnect with their culture, especially now while tribal members are spending a lot of time at home during during the coronavirus pandemic.

"We've got this technology," Jeneda Benally says. "How are we going to find hope in this technology? How are we going to find the continuation of our culture where we can connect our elders to our youth?"

The dilemma is figuring out what parts of Navajo culture they can share publicly and what parts are too sacred and can only be passed down from one Navajo to another.

At least 16 West Point cadets test COVID-19 positive before grad speech by President Trump – USA TODAY

Posted: at 3:53 am

President Trump shared his positive outlook on COVID-19 treatment results and the recovering economy during a roundtable with business leaders. Wochit

WASHINGTON The Army has determined 16West Point cadets have tested positive for COVID-19 after returning to the campus for a commencement address by President Trump scheduled for June 13, according to sources on Capitol Hill.

The affected cadets, a fractionof the 850 who have returned to the campus since spring break in March, are receiving treatment but are not showing symptoms of the disease, Army Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams, the West Point superintendent, said in an interview.

Williams, who declined to specify the number of cadets affected, said screening and safety procedures will allowthe ceremony to be held safely.

Sources on Capitol Hill, with access to information but not authorized to speak publicly, said that of the 16 affected cadets, 14 had tested positive for the antibody that indicates they had contracted the virus, recovered and had developed anti-bodies. In addition, 71 of the more than 5,000 faculty, staff and civilians at West Point have tested positive for COVID-19 since March. All but fourcivilians have recovered, and they are living off the post.

The COVID-19 pandemic has scrambled graduation plans for the nation's elite military schools. The Naval Academy held a virtual ceremony, and the Air Force Academy sequestered its senior class on campus, holding graduation with cadets spaced at safe distance from one another.

Critics have called Trump's decision to attend West Point graduation a political stunt that endangers the health of cadets and those with whom they have had contact on their return to campus.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., and an Army veteran, said in a statement last monththat Trump's commencement address puts the young officers, who have already received their commissions, at unnecessary risk "all to stroke his own ego."

Top Army officials have defended the decision, pointing out that the seniors had to return to the campus before heading to their first active-duty posts. The seniors need to pass physicals and retrieve their belongings, Williams said.

The cadets, who are surveyed for symptoms before returning,have been arriving in groups and are tested and quarantined on arrival. So far, a "very, very low" number of the 800 who have returned have tested positive, Williams said. The remaining 200seniors are scheduled to arrive Saturday.

The seniors have their temperatures checked daily, maintain social distancing and wear masks, Williams said.

Williams expressed confidence that commencement can be held safely and without putting the graduates or community at risk.

"I'm very, very confident in the resources we have here, both medical and administrative how we're taking care of them," Williams said. "These are my sons and daughters. That's the way I talk to them."

COVID-19 tests available Sunday in Immokalee – Wink News

Posted: at 3:53 am

IMMOKALEE

Testing people for the coronavirus is more important than ever as the state continues to reopen, so on Sunday in Immokalee, people can get tested without a doctors note.

Immokalee is among the hot spots for COVID-19 in Florida, with more than 400 confirmed cases in just the last month.

This is going to be a very, very hot spot here if we dont do something about it. Theres plenty of deaths already, we dont want the number to rise more, said Dr. Antonio Gonzalez, a family doctor in Immokalee.

I dont know if a letter to the governors office and or the emergency management services in Tallahassee would assist this or not, but I would love to see more testing as soon as possible, said Collier County Commissioner Bill McDaniel.

McDaniel said those words last week, and the state will be testing more people on Sunday.

The walk-up test site is at 419 N. First St., and is open from noon to 6 p.m.

Doctors Without Borders will also be doing tests at more targeted sites during the week.

The rest is here:
