  • Just keep safe yourself, Suzanne! We really really really do love you and all the hard work that you put in to this. LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!

  • I meant to leave you a song also, Suzanne – good stuff. Everyone loves you.

  • Suzanne, this information is incomplete. I’d like to know how many of those were breakthrough cases…or are they not owning up to that?

  • 20.7 %, and we’re destroying our society. People are at each other’s throats that effects 1 in 5 of us.

    This is what you gave your freedoms away for, Anchorage?

    Really?

  • Death by Hospital. The government-controlled death protocols foisted upon hospital staff include denying patient access to lifesaving early treatments, telling the sick to go home until they can’t breathe, refusing admittance to patient-advocating family, friends, and loved-ones, administering a one-size-fits-all treatment of emergency-use-authorized Remdesivir, linked to liver and kidney toxicity, then place patient on a ventilator with a 90-some percent chance of dying. This is not medicine. This is not care. These evil policies constitute crimes against humanity.

    • This right here. Covid isn’t killing near as many folks as the doctors and hospitals purposely are. Any doctors not willingly to use proven treatments used elsewhere around the world are Murderers and should be treated as such and should be charged and jailed on 1st degree premeditated Murder.

    • Exactly. Just heard from my PA that no pharmacist in Soldotna will allow a prescription of Ivermectin to be filled!!! That’s scientifically insane! Politically predictable.

  • Well, there’s 38 potential deaths.

    • Aren’t you a ray of sunshine???! NOT!
      The dashboard makes a distinction that these are state wide confirmed and suspected Covid patients. In other words there are probably a multitude of reasons for people to be on vents. I hope they all get better and return to their lives. Out of almost 114,000 positive tests since March 2020 we have had 561 deaths in the same time frame. In 2017 per the CDC 995 Alaskans died from Cancer, 831 from heart disease and 439 in accidents and these are numbers over 1 year not 19 months.
      Perspective is everything

  • A more important number than how many have COVID (20.7%) in the hospital, is, how many are in the hospital because of COVID. Two entirely different numbers when you are testing everyone who enters the hospital as a patient. A person arriving for a broken arm but test positive for COVID should be annotated as such.

    • They’ll not give you that number, nor the vaccinated patients in there with COVID (the term breakthrough COVID is akin to reverse racism, total double-speak).
      .
      Even with direct access to a patients chart, it’s difficult to assess who has or has not been vaccinated, unless they volunteer the information. Many working within the hospitals are completely unaware of the vaccination status of their peers, until they get fired…….

  • Not really seeing the healthcare system getting overwhelmed here.
    .
    Just saying.

    • You will, when Regional (HCA Group) fall afoul of Biden’s 100 club mandate.

  • Concise. Correct. Current. Thank you Suzanne.
    .
    Why is it so hard for the mainstreams to report data like this?
    .
    To hear the doctors and nurses from Prov tell the story in the Assembly chambers, it would appear that every hospital bed is occupied by a Covid patient, Covid patients line the halls and parking garages on gurneys, and the dead are piling up out back.

  • Go to the UncoverDC website and search on “DoD Data Analysis Reveals Accelerated ADE In Vaccinated”
    .
    This article is based on a Department of Defense funded analysis. This is as real and legitimate as it gets.
    .
    Some quotes from the article:
    .
    “ A Department of Defense (DoD) program called “Project Salus” analyzed data on 5.6 million Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 or older and found that most COVID-19 hospitalizations are among fully vaccinated patients, with numbers increasing as the weeks pass. In cooperation with the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC), the study was presented by DoD partner Humetrix. Alarmingly, the data backs up what experts have predicted for months—that mass vaccination against COVID-19 will result in the mutation and strengthening of SARS-CoV-1, a phenomenon called Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE), thus driving up the rate of infection and spread of the virus.
    Project Salus data suggests that the majority of COVID-19 infections in study cohorts occur among those fully vaccinated, with outcomes worsening over time. Additionally, based on this analysis, individuals who have contracted and recovered from COVID-19 boast natural immunity, which offers the strongest protection against breakthrough infection.
    .
    As Delta cases increase, the study data reveals that by August, 71% of all COVID-19 cases were in vaccinated individuals.
    .
    Following the release of the Humetrix data, experts echoed what the information conveys, affirming:

    “These data, presented here, shatter the official Biden / Fauci narrative that falsely claims America is experiencing ‘a pandemic of the unvaccinated’. The data show that the pandemic actually appears to be accelerated by COVID-19 vaccines, while unvaccinated individuals are having far better outcomes than the vaccinated.

    Furthermore, according to these data, the single best strategy for avoiding post-vaccine infections and hospitalizations is natural immunity derived from a previous COVID infection.”
    .
    Go out and read it for yourself. There is a link in the article to the slide deck referenced.

    • And as ADE infections increase amongst the vaccinated, more blame is placed on the unvaxed, evil people we’re dealing with.

    • Thank you for this.

    • The UK data for the past 7 1/2 months indicates 68% of SARS-CoV-2 virus fatalities are patients injected with the full series of trial Mrna genetic therapy drugs.
      Of the rampant worldwide government corruption issues in pushing these toxins, lockdowns and mask mandates, New South Wales is boiling over into the public view as Premier Gladys Berejiklian was told she wouldn’t be charged in a corruption probe if she imposed a vaccine mandate.
      Pfizer and AstraZeneca are paying lobbyists tens of millions of dollars to direct Australia’s leaders to push vaccine mandates. What are our leaders and medical businesses being paid?
      Our Alaska medical industry complains that they are at crisis level due to their own mismanagement.
      They fire their best staff and avoid effectively treating patients that they can heal rapidly at home. This is a corrupt managing problem, not a health crisis. Fire the management and hire competent overhead. Instead of blaming the public for suffering unnecessary deaths and illness suffering all to promote dangerous and ineffective failed pharma products.

  • Before COVID, nobody apparently knew any statistics about how many people die each year in this country; somewhere below or above 3 million people die in the U.S. Of the 500,000 people that died in 2020 that were said to have died “from” COVID, about 95% of them had other severe ailments. I am not being disrespectful to those people who died. It is highly debatable whether their cause of death was COVID. These statistics are being manipulated and those of us in the public that know someone that died, were told “Cause Of Death- COVID”. That is because the death certificates specify that they “most recent” comorbidity, which is virtually always COVID, “will be the cause of death”. The deceased already had heart disease or asthma or obesity and/or diabetes. The hospitals are not really checking what actually “caused” the death. They are just applying the most recent illness.

  • According to Lester Holt last night we were all running around with our hair on fire, they must of had a slow news day, oh wait.. it’s MSM.

  • Why is caring for sick people so overwhelming for hospital staff? Did they not understand the mission of their chosen career? I worry that in a true health emergency, perhaps chemical or biologic warfare, the trained medical people would disappear in a puff of pink smoke.

    • Joan, Prov and ANMC are firing them for not taking the jab. Many of them have had COVID and have anti-bodies. They don’t want to leave their profession, they’re being forced out.
      .
      Any overwhelm the hospitals are experiencing right now is self inflicted. This is a choice on the part of hospital management. It’s not the fault of the caregivers within the system. They didn’t disappear in a puff of smoke when COVID hit. They’re good men and women who work hard and do understand their mission. You have to ask the same of the people in charge at Prov and ANMC. They seem to have lost sight of it themselves.
      .
      And here’s a fun little fact: The traveling nurses they’re using to replace the nurses they’re firing? They don’t have to be vaccinated.

    • It isn’t, the good ones just get on with it, with professionalism.
      .
      Unfortunately for you and I, the medical profession is as polarized as the citizen voting body. There are as many vitriolic partisans within the medical community, unfortunately.
      .
      Buck Sexton, the talk show host, found himself having to get the jab in NY. On sitting down with the nurse she asked him which shot he wanted, he said “I suppose the J&J,” she asked, “are you sure” he asked her which she’d had, and her reply was priceless, “none, I don’t want any thank you.”

  • Why is AK Regional Hospital not having hiring problems like Providence Hospital?
    Hmmmmmmm…..Maybe it is because nurses and medical workers do not want to take the covid experimental shot that has horrendous side effects for a lot of people that is not being reported!! I would rather be treated for early Covid -19 symptoms than to take an experimental shot that has side effects that the lunatic news is not reporting!!!!

  • Keep in mind the dashboard isn’t always current. Numbers might be falling but they are still more than double the worst numbers we had in the last surge (February-April or so) and WAY above what they’ve ever been! The big difference is this time includes significant numbers of children and young adults and the vast majority of the adults sick, in hospital, and dying are Republicans who have refused the vaccine. The papers are full of the few cases of vaccinated people who die but for every 1 of those, there are over 100 unvaccinated. Also, it was just reported that they are finding significant heart damage in at least 30% of people who have had covid, regardless how bad the case. Generally, the sicker they were, the worse the damage, but not necessarily. That’s a LOT of people with preventable heart damage! And NONE of the medications in the pharmacy work well on viruses. The few they have that actually work have lots of warnings and pretty bad side effects. Why would anyone expect a poison (Ivermectin) to kill something that isn’t alive?? Viruses are not independent living organisms like lice and parasites. They can only “live” by hijacking the cells/DNA of a host. To outright kill a virus with poison it would have to kill the host cells it’s in!! That’s why viruses are generally left to “run its course” and hope it doesn’t do too much damage, which most don’t. Unfortunately, Covid-19 often isn’t one of them.
