Melissa DeRosa, the secretary to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, announced that an executive order would be issued that required all hospitals in New York, both public and private, to allow women to have a partner in the labor and delivery room in compliance with the latest guidance from the New York State Department of Health.
The order, which the governor released Saturday night, is a response to a decision earlier this week by two major New York City hospital systems, NewYork-Presbyterian and Mount Sinai, to ban support people from labor and delivery rooms because of the coronavirus pandemic.
This is a very sound decision IMO. Apparently panicked pregnant women were preparing to stampede to other states to give birth, or even hastily deciding on poorly planned home births.
In California, one ER doctor who works at multiple hospitals in a hard-hit county told BuzzFeed News, those medical records aren't being audited by anyone at the state and local level currently and some people arent even testing those people who are dead. We just don't know. The numbers are grossly underreported. I know for a fact that weve had three deaths in one county where only one is listed on the website, the doctor said.
And two of the hardest-hit areas in the nation New York City and Los Angeles County released guidance earlier this week encouraging doctors not to test patients unless they think the test will significantly change their course of treatment. That means that potentially more people in both places could be admitted to hospitals with severe respiratory symptoms and recover or die and not be registered as a coronavirus case.
Over the next several days, Askini saw her temperature spike and drop dangerously, and she developed a cough that gurgled because of all the liquid in her lungs. After two more trips to the ER that week, Askini was given a final test on the seventh day of her illness, and once doctors helped manage her flu and pneumonia symptoms, they again sent her home to recover. She waited another three days for a lab to process her test, and at last she had a diagnosis: COVID-19.
A few days later, Askini got the bills for her testing and treatment: $34,927.43. I was pretty sticker-shocked, she says. I personally dont know anybody who has that kind of money.
SHE WAS NEVER HOSPITALIZED
This country is really fucked.
Starting week after next, but kids who stay home starting this coming week are considered excused.
This means that I don't have to formally disenroll my kids and and begin officially homeschooling them.

I don't know if this has already been posted here or not. I don't know why the state doesn't just get on with it, regardless of what the worthless CDC has to say.
I'm thinking about yanking my kids from school until they get this bullshit sorted out. I'm not worried about them, but we live with my 80 year old mother, and I'm not going to risk her or my lives over this shit policy.
