Someone else will rise up quick and take the market once the dust settles. I hope Wrights gets to if Ravn does sink and end an ERA...

Might be awhile.
Grant is doing okay but when this is over they will need more planes and pilots.

Be hard for another to come in this area.

Interested to see how the opening up goes(of Alaska and the country as a whole). See if the numbers go back up and if they do what the response will be.

YKHC tested a person coming off the jet from ANC and they were positive.
Person went to a village.

Will know soon which village they were going to.
Link Posted: 5/15/2020 11:28:37 PM EST
Yes 1 person through the Bethel airport that has been ID'd and being dealt with. It is the 2nd case in the YKHC region. Lets not get crazy yet. Alaska has 700,000 people and currently 12 people in the entire state are in the Hospital as of the end of shift brief today.

updated info.

Tested negative twice


But i still do not trust the hospital.
Too many mistakes over the years.

Had a fishing trip scheduled end of August in the Petersburg area.  I see the Governor changed the covid testing requirements to a mandatory negative test done within 72 hours of arrival effective Aug 11.  Since most testing labs are a week or more out on reporting, if you can even get a test if you're asymptomatic  I guess the trip is cancelled.  

Sucks.  Never been to AK and was hoping to see at least one small part.

Welp city council mandated masks when you cannot social distance.
Also mandatory testing when you get off the jet.

To damn many do gooders on the council.

The whole no in person school is killing me since my wife and I both work. Between daycare and a tutor I’m on track to pay $19,800 a year in childcare. And I still get home and have to do school work with them until they go to bed.

Ouch.

Been telling the local school the k-1 grades need to go 1/2 day all week.
Those two grades need all help they can get for a good start in school.
Plus the mental and physical health of being at school.

I don’t know where you live, but there are in person private schools for less than that. Most if not all private schools have had a noticeable increase in enrollment.

Plus, the indoctrination that most private schools provide (all schools do it) is not Commie crap.

Don Young has the virus.


Wife and i have lost some relatives the past few days to the China virus.
Bunch of cousins have also popped positive.

Sorry to hear about your relatives. And hope and prayers for those with it now.


Prediction: AQD, mayor with zero votes, will lock down Anchorage and kill more local businesses next week.

While all of us continue to shop at Fred's, Carrs, Walmart, and Costco, protected by the invisible mega-corp shield against the virus. And Amazon will continue it's growth (buy AMZN).

Well a little update from my view.  I work doing transports from MatSu regional to the Anchorage hospitals when the patients need a higher level of care.  Its the same company that does a lot of the medevac flights in Alaska.  We had MatSu try to activate us 3 times last night however couldn't find a hospital that had room to accept.  JBER never refuses to take a VA eligible patient and turned MatSu down to accept a retiree.  Central Peninsula Hospital had to medevac a person to Seattle for surgery on a small bowel obstruction.  Prov had 4 icu patients in ER beds and ANMC had 4 adults in beds in the PICU.  There was talk about possibly having to fly patients from Bethel to MatSu because of room but MatSu is full.

Everywhere is full from what I hear.

Ykhc and the state would have been wise to use the hcq,zinc,vitamin d,c and azithromicine plus the ivermectin early so people could have a chance to not be affected as bad.

There are some military folks helping out at ykhc.

Home village numbers are sky rocketing even with a lockdown.

Are people actually staying away from each other though?  In the GD thread you said everyone during the summer lockdowns were all swimming together etc.

Honestly masks work.  Our SOP is we wear a surgical mask for every patient and every patient also wears a simple mask either cloth or surgical.  If they are covid positive we upgrade to n95 half masks.  There have been a number of times where we have taken a patient only to get informed at the receiving facility or part way and dispatch has informed us that the patient was positive. So far no transmission can be attributed to those transports.

Pretty much people stayed away from each other when Bethel started popping.
Summer almost all the damn young ones were swimming together. Fall time i am unsure as I did not stop on my way upriver.

Will ask relatives on how it got going.
But drugs and alcohol make people do very stupid stuff.

My sister in law popped positive 2-3 weeks ago and she kept away from people. Was deathly afraid of bring it to her mom.
She was a village covid worker doing lock down stuff. Kept her mask on and sanitized.
They are unsure how it got her.
My cousins have kept their kids away from everybody but very close family.
Even they popped positive.

But there are multiple 3-5 generations in a single houses.

I know some local people that were pretty religious about masks and washing hands that caught it.
Nearest they can figure is the bathroom angle.

Family friends have a household of 8.
Only 1 popped positive.
They are all heavy with heart,diabetes and some smoke.

As far as the statement on hospitals refusing patient transfers, are they at standard capacity or are things distanced in the ICU/ER over normal reducing capacity? My flight back to Anchorage last month they told everyone to stay in their seats for a medical emergency. Two officers rushed on the plane and they wheeled off a woman who was fully unresponsive. Not once did the flight crew attempt medical intervention or ask for medical trained people on the plane. Seemed like it was just wait it out till we land and "May the odds be ever in your favor". Saw the medics in the airport wearing full isolation with rebreather apparatus. Just seems like some of the actions taken about this disease seem to be overkill and precautions taken are preventing treatment of people for other things.

Not sure what you mean.  The icu and ER's aren't reducing capacity for this.  The ICU's at each hospital have 1 person to a room.

Prov has had to hire additional RT's due to the need for getting more people put on high flow o2.

MatSu yesterday converted another wing into negative pressure to keep up with demand for the patients that need isolation precautions.

Cardiologists in Alaska are seeing an uptick in former positive patients that had mild symptoms being diagnosed with myocarditis.

Unfortunately they do have health disasters.  RSV was horrible last year.  Part of it is the housing situation and the types of wood stoves that are used added with the possible lack of running water.

Mold in the houses is a huge problem in Y-K delta.
Not to mention the glacial silt we breath in.

I cannot remember if I said a 20 year ol person passed away.
A 37 year old Pilot Station man died of the virus and not being able to be medivaced.
