Shelby County commissioner asks health department to move back to phase one of local reopening


MEMPHIS, Tenn — Monday, with certain COVID-19 data trends surging locally, one Shelby County commissioner requested some restrictions returned, with a return to phase one of the area's 'Back to Business' reopening.

Commissioner Tami Sawyer made that request in an email, after new COVID-19 cases in Shelby County jumped more than 40% compared to the previous 14-day period, and local COVID-19 hospitalizations jumped 27% in the last month.

Hughley said the positive diagnosis came after a battery of tests were performed when he was taken to Nashville's Saint Thomas Hospital Friday night after his collapse.


"I was what they call asymptomatic," Hughley said in his post. "I didn't have flu-like symptoms, I didn't have shortness of breath, I didn't have difficulty breathing, I didn't have a cough, I didn't have a low grade fever. I still don't have a fever. I didn't have a loss of smell or taste, apparently I just lost consciousnes."

They are saying these are from "community transmission." Memphis just passed rule requiring masks in public places a couple of days ago.

Isn't Obama doing a fundraiser for Joe this coming week?

I can't wait to see the spin when 😍bama has a "bigly" successful outing.

Superthrive for stressed tree?

I have an older box elder tree which is dropping yellow leaves. So I called a nursery & was told to get Superthrive.

The man said to put 3 teaspoons per 1 gal of water & to treat the tree weekly for a month. (Directions say 1/2 teaspoon / gallon.)

I bought a 4 oz. Bottle today, but the nursery manager was not in to confirm what he had told me on the phone.

Anyone have exerience with this product? I am planning to mix in a large, clean trash can & use a water pump to treat the drip line.


More people, younger people admitted to hospital with COVID-19 [Memphis]



Tuesday, almost another 200 new COVID-19 cases were reported in Shelby County. Monday it was 250. Doctors on the Joint Task Force say the increasing numbers was just one of their concerns.


In addition to the increase number of cases, there has been a steep incline in the number of hospitalizations. Previously the majority of the hospitalizations were from people in nursing homes, the elderly, or those with comorbidities - chronic long-term conditions.

"We are now seeing much younger people coming to the hospital, many of them in their 20s and 30s, and in many cases, people who do not have any health conditions or comorbidities. This is very worrisome because it's different than the patterns we have been seeing," said Dr. Jon McCullers.

Makes me wonder whether this is from a mutated strain? I'm staying home!

Day told investigators that as he approached the intersection, he tried to pass through the crowd, but was approached and struck in the face.

Another white guy...more misdemeanor charges! 🤬

The article goes on to say he is "expected" in court tomorrow, meaning they let him out or he was never jailed.

"That’s why I see someone like Trump, and I say, you know, when a bully like that is allowed to make all these Republicans afraid of him, afraid of him because he’s going to tweet something silly about them or something, that — we’re talking about the country. The only person who did it was [Mitt] Romney and Justin Amash stood up and one or two others."

Mayo Clinic unveils new antibody test for COVID-19


ROCHESTER, Minn — Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic and its research partners have launched a new type of antibody test designed to help develop therapies and vaccines for COVID-19.

The new test measures neutralizing antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, the strain of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. According to Mayo Clinic, "neutralizing antibodies are a subset of antibodies able to independently inactivate viruses, and are associated with protective immunity against re-infection.

This new test provides us with incredibly important information about how effective a person’s antibodies are at neutralizing the virus," said William Morice, II, M.D., Ph.D., president of Mayo Clinic Laboratories, in a statement. "This will help us identify optimal convalescent plasma donors and ultimately help assess the efficacy of anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccines."
