Covid and Nursing Homes 15 September 2022

Where are these families? You may need to get and make sure your family members are getting the shot and the boosters, you can’t rely on the homes staff to obtain these invaluable shots So, too, during high needs times it may be necessary to remove a family member and have them return to their families home. Nobody, takes care of a family member like a family, a crisis is exactly that, a crisis, take personal responsibility.

The episode on the Jan 6th

The woman who was whispering made me uneasy. Like she’s held hostage as she is telling this story… Its very weird how low she’s talking

Monica Gandhi??

Really disappointed and saddened at todays episode on COVID. To give Monica Gandhi even 1 second of air time, touting her as an “infectious disease expert,” is laughable. She has persistently downplayed COVID and has been wrong every single phase of this pandemic (claiming India had herd immunity prior to deadly COVID wave; giving SEVEN reasons why we don’t need boosters BEFORE delta wave in US; labeling Delta variant as “reassuring;” stating the pandemic will essentially be over by Sep/Oct 2021; falsely stating omicron variant won’t swamp hospitals in vaccinated areas; and on and on…). Where did the quality of reporting/fact checking at NPR go? I don’t need a cheerleader when it comes to COVID, I appreciate sound evidence-based, objective, sound reporting.
