Coronavirus | Health | State GovernmentAs coronavirus infections surge across the state, Alaska finds itself at ‘a tipping point’October 28, 2020 by Tegan Hanlon, Alaska Public Media Share:SEARHC personnel test a colleague for COVID-19 at the employee screening tent behind the hospital in April 2020. (Photo by Berett Wilber / KCAW)Alaska is in the grips of its highest number of coronavirus infections yet, and some health experts say the state has again reached “a tipping point” in the pandemic.Either Alaskans get the spread of the virus under control, they say, or infections will continue to multiply and could overwhelm the state’s health care system.“If anyone needs to know, ‘Should I be worried? Are the alarm bells going off?’ The answer is yes,” said Jared Kosin, president and chief executive of the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association. “We need to control the spread.”Alaska recorded a record-high 526 new coronavirus infections on Sunday, followed by 348 cases on Monday and 381 on Tuesday. For more than a month, the state has reported 100 or more new cases a day, with the daily tally hitting at least 200 new infections for almost two weeks straight.The surge has prompted pleas from health officials that Alaskans avoid all activities with people outside of their households and, if they must be around others, to wear a mask and stay at least 6 feet apart. During the last spike, in July, the state and its largest city either had stricter measures in place or put them in place in response to rising cases. While some have suggested that tighter rules, including a statewide mask mandate, may help now, Gov. Mike Dunleavy maintains that he supports a more localized approach. Anchorage just seated a new acting mayor.Meanwhile, the virus has exploded in parts of rural Alaska, and in more urban areas too. A top Anchorage health official said last week that “there’s virus everywhere in the community.” Efforts to trace the close contacts of those infected are strained. Some villages have gone into lockdown. Infections are also rapidly rising in other parts of the country. And, due to a national shortage, health care workers in Western Alaska say they’ve been forced to reuse gloves.“We’re clearly into our third wave,” said Dr. Tom Hennessy, an Anchorage physician and infectious disease epidemiologist who used to work for the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We probably have more people with COVID walking around in Alaska than we ever have.”By Tuesday, the state was reporting more than 7,500 known active coronavirus cases, and nearly every region in Alaska was in a “high-alert level,” meaning there’s widespread community transmission “with many undetected cases and frequent discrete outbreaks.” The state health department said cases are expected to continue to accelerate, and more testing is needed.Pandemic alert levels on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020, according to data from Alaska DHSS (Chart by David Purdy/KTOO)According to The New York Times, Alaska on Tuesday had the eighth highest number of new coronavirus infections per 100,000 residents over the past seven days, compared to other U.S. states. It still had one of the country’s lowest death rates from the virus.Kosin said what he’s most concerned about now is the degree of community spread in Alaska, and also the impact that’s having on hospitals, and will continue to have.“This weekend, when we had over 500 positive cases statewide, the brunt of that is not going to hit our doors for a couple weeks,” he said. “So right now, we’re already strapped. I mean, definitely noticeable stress, in terms of staffing, in terms of just hospitalizations increasing, and the worst is yet to hit our doors.”Data from the state health department showing cases by date reported. “Alaska resident cases” means Alaska residents diagnosed with COVID-19, both in and out of the state. “Non-resident cases” mean the number of people from outside of the state who were diagnosed with COVID-19 while in Alaska. “Total” case numbers are cumulative (i.e., include people who have recovered). (Graphic by David Purdy/KTOO)Increasing case numbers are not only linked to more hospitalizations, Kosin said, but also to more hospital staff not coming into work, either because they have the virus or because they’ve been in contact with someone who does. That’s exacerbating existing staffing shortages, he said. Fewer staff means fewer available hospital beds.Also, capacity is further stressed as the virus infiltrates other health care facilities, and those buildings push pause on accepting new patients, Kosin said. That includes assisted-living homes and the Alaska Psychiatric Institute, which announced Friday that it won’t take new patients for two weeks.“That means any patients that otherwise would go to API essentially sit in a hospital emergency room, and it creates a backup and when we have a backup, you start creating basically choke points within the system,” Kosin said.The unpredictability of staffing shortages, facility closures and other variables makes it difficult to project precisely when the virus could overwhelm hospitals if the spread doesn’t slow, said Hennessy. One model, he said, shows Anchorage ICU beds filling up in about two months. The city has plans for surges, but concerns persist about staffing.“We, with increased transmission, could threaten our hospital care system in December. Or we could, with a 10% decrease in transmission, get this under control,” Hennessy said. “We’re kind of in a fragile tipping point position right now.”The state health department reported that that the number of new coronavirus cases in Alaska last week was 56% higher than the week prior. And, it said, that many Alaskans diagnosed with the coronavirus said they went to social gatherings, community events, church services or other social venues while they were contagious, but before they knew they had the virus.Hennessy and Kosin questioned whether more should be done to try to control the spread of the virus, especially as temperatures drop and more Alaskans gather indoors.“The methods that we’re using to try to convince people to change their behaviors do not appear to be working,” Hennessy said. “State public health is having a hard time keeping up with case contact investigations, data entry, even the simple things of reaching each positive case and giving them instructions about isolation.”While some local communities, including Anchorage and Juneau, have mandatory mask orders, Hennessy said, a statewide rule would help.“I think it would give enough coverage to enough communities that are suffering, and don’t have a mask order in place,” he said. “It would be cheap, it wouldn’t put anybody out of work, and it could have a huge impact on case numbers, hospitalizations, and it could save lives.”Kosin said he’d support a statewide mask mandate too.“It sure seems like something more is necessary than what we’ve been doing, given the results we’re seeing right now,” he said.In an email Monday, Lauren Giliam, deputy press secretary for Gov. Dunleavy, said when it comes to implementing new measures to reduce the spread of the virus, the governor “stands by his support of local control.” Dunleavy will continue to “assess and respond as needed,” she wrote.Alaska’s chief medical officer Dr. Anne Zink said last week that “many communities have their own restrictions based on different case levels and alert levels.”“Mandates or no mandates, COVID really is determined by what we do individually,” she said.In Anchorage, the city is recently under new leadership after Ethan Berkowitz announced on Oct. 13 that he would resign from his job as mayor. Austin Quinn-Davidson was sworn in as acting mayor Friday evening.A city spokeswoman wrote in an email Monday that Quinn-Davidson was not available for an interview early this week about whether she was considering new measures in response to the rise in cases, and said the administration was “prioritizing getting her acclimated with the status of many policy items – COVID-19 included.”At Tuesday night’s Anchorage Assembly meeting, Quinn-Davidson said the economy will not fully recover as long as there’s widespread coronavirus transmission, and Alaskans “must flatten the curve.”“Gatherings are not safe,” she said. “If you’re feeling even mild symptoms, please get tested, please stay home and wear a mask and stay at least 6 feet from others outside your home.”At the Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, the hospital has had plans in place for months to handle a surge in coronavirus patients, said chief medical officer Dr. Michael Bernstein. In the most dire case, he said, the hospital could fill the operating and recovery rooms with more beds. The Alaska Airlines Center could also be used.The biggest challenge, Bernstein said, will be staffing. But the goal is to not get to a point where there’s that many Alaskans sick enough with the virus to get hospitalized.To help bring the current rate of transmission down, Bernstein said, he’d support additional, government-led efforts, including a more sweeping requirement that people wear masks indoors, and an order limiting gatherings to about 10 people.“That’s not a popular answer,” he said. “But if we flatten this again, and we start going down, I think you can relax it.”Share this story:

So how can you work out where to get the most bang for your buck when trying to find the best value property for your children’s education? City A.M. crunched the Land Registry’s figures for houses bought so far this year and averaged it across postcode districts to find the average cost of a property within the catchment radius of every school in the country. One chart shows best value schools, which are those where 80 per cent of pupils get five or more A-Cs and the cost of the house is less than the average for that local authority. This excludes selective schools, including fee-paying and grammars, which can distort the data. Independent schools do not list their selection procedures with the Department for Education, so they are also omitted.

AdvertisementTags: Club BlucrimeFort Myers Police A number of the gang-related shootings were reported on Larmie Street, Sumter Drive, Franklin Street, Fountain Street, and Indian Street, all in Fort Myers.In the months leading up to the Club Blu shooting, there were numerous text messages, phone calls, and social media posts between some of the five suspects detailing issues between the gangs and plans of violence, according to court documents. AdvertisementDisputes between the two gangs stemmed back to a fight in high school in May 2015. Numerous shootings followed, which involved drive-by shootings and in one instance, an innocent 12-year-old girl was shot. Detectives believe the group was part of the 1Way gang, who often feuded with the Bottom Boys gang, according to the arrest affidavit. Investigators think the five members of the group targeted the Teen Beach Party to specifically shoot members of the Bottom Boys gang. However, two teens completely unrelated to either gang were shot and killed instead.

Not in a group chat, but individually with one another, or chat on the phone. The party was scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. and end at 12 a.m.At 12:04 a.m., O’Neal texts Loggins saying, “what’s the play?” A few minutes later, Russ, from inside the club, texts O’Neal saying “I see one opp wide open,” according to the affidavit.For the next 15 to 20 minutes, the five suspects call and text each other a number of times. Police received reports of a shooting at Club Blu at 12:37 a.m.Just after that, 911 dispatchers received tips about a suspicious white Chevy.At 1:20 a.m., a Fort Myers police officer spotted a white Chevy near Colonial Boulevard and Solomon Boulevard. As the officer approached the car, O’Neal and Battle ran away. Church sped off inside the car. All three were eventually caught by police, O’Neal and Battle were found hiding under a house. Battle had told a witness, “My buddy killed a guy and I’m just running cause they think it’s me,” according to court documents. All three were arrested, but at the time, investigators could not pin them to the shooting, so they were released and never faced jail time.At 3:23 a.m., a car fire was reported at the Residence Condominiums off Solomon Boulevard. A car with bullet holes on it was torched. Two rifles were found nearby. Advertisement Around 3:30 a.m., Loggins showed up to NCH Hospital in Naples with a gunshot wound to his leg.In the early morning hours after the shooting, a gun was found on Fowler Street, which forensically was connected to the shooting. O’Neal was seen holding the gun in pictures on his cell phone, according to the affidavit. Two guns were also found in a backyard on Ashwood Street. Also with the gun was a shirt that had blood on it. DNA evidence from the shirt matched a member of the 1Way gang.Witness statements, forensic evidence, and cell phone records connect all five suspects to the mass shooting, according to police. Investigators believe there was a meeting at a 1Way home on Sumter Drive hours before the shooting. O’Neal, Church, Battle, and Loggins were at the home. They dressed in dark clothing, pulled out a bunch of guns, and left, all at the same time, with other 1Way gang members, according to a witness.Detectives believe Russ was planted inside Club Blu and fed information to the four others outside of the club, detailing who was inside and when specific people were leaving.In court Thursday, a judge set bond at $750,000 for each suspect. If they bond out, all suspects, besides Russ, are required to wear and electronic monitoring device.Sean Archilles, 14, and Steph’an Strawder, 18, were killed in the mass shooting.

RelatedCensure Motion gets Support from Govt. MPs FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail A motion to censure Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) for North Central St. Andrew, Karl Samuda, was supported yesterday (October 3) by Government MPs in the House, even as members of the Opposition staged a walkout.The censure motion, of which notice was given by Member of Parliament for South Western St. Elizabeth, Donald Buchanan, in the House on September 12, called on Mr. Samuda to retract statements which the government called “misleading”, wherein Mr. Samuda had alleged that President and Chief Executive Officer of the Port Authority of Jamaica, Noel Hylton, had submitted a report on the Sandals Whitehouse project to former Prime Minister, P.J. Patterson and his Cabinet.In moving the motion, Mr. Buchanan explained that while Mr. Patterson had recommended that Mr. Hylton be appointed in 2005 as a facilitator to investigate the Sandals Whitehouse project, he had advised the House last October that the facilitator “had not yet completed his work.and the partners [on the project] had indicated there were matters to resolve and they agreed and recommended that Mr. Hylton be appointed facilitator to see where agreements could be reached and where differences could be best resolved”.Mr. Buchanan said while the Opposition Member accused the sitting Cabinet of “cover up” and alleged that a report from Mr. Hylton was submitted to Prime Minister Patterson and his then Cabinet, there had been no actual submission of a report to the current Cabinet.He urged that an appropriate punishment be meted out to Mr. Samuda in light of his erroneous statements regarding the Sandals Whitehouse project.Responding to the censure motion, Leader of the Opposition, Bruce Golding raised objections, noting that the government had no moral authority to censure the Opposition Member as it was “the duty of the Opposition to expose, oppose and propose”.The censure motion against Mr. Samuda has been referred to the Privileges Committee, which will determine the appropriate sanctions to be applied.

Project a first for Australia A $32 million hydro-powered battery project to be located near Albury will be Australia’s first,following approval by the NSW Government.Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the hydro-powered battery will be charged by the nearby Hume Hydro Power Station that already provides power to 40,000 homes.“The battery will be able to dispatch energy to the grid during peak demand, boosting grid stability and energy security in what is the first co-located battery and hydro project in Australia,” Mr Stokes said.“Not only does it supply clean and reliable energy, it provides jobs and investment for the local area.”Minister for Energy and the Environment Matt Kean said the project was a great example of how industry was supporting the State’s growing renewable energy sector through innovation and investment.“We know NSW has some of the best hydro opportunities anywhere in the world and this sort of battery innovation adds to the renewable energy mix right across the State,” Mr Kean said.“As renewable energy becomes a greater part of our energy mix, projects like this will help to support the continued growth of our economy by delivering a modern, cheap and reliable energy grid for the people of NSW.”Member for Albury Justin Clancy said the project’s approval was fantastic news for the community.“A clean energy project that will create 40 construction jobs and inject $32 million into the regional economy is welcome news for the area,” Mr Clancy said.It is expected that construction will start later this year. /Public Release.
