Governor Steve Sisolak, finding out there’s no nice way to politely get rid of the Corona Virus, has launched a very targeted strategy against people who walk around like they’re not going to get the disease and yet they come down with it – and spread it around more.
Governor Sisolak apparently got tired of playing the “nice guy governor” and instead brought out the heavy artillery. The Governor has assembled a team of health related experts and applied lessons learned from around the country that there’s no nice way to slap down the virus. It takes strong discipline.
Governor Sisolak has formed teams of health and virus experts to fan out across Nevada to track down where the virus is replicating itself. If there’s only a little bit of virus, they track down who’s got it and send them home and tell them to stay there and then get tested again. Where cases are more common or more severe they send them home for up to two weeks to ensure they’re not spreading the virus even further. And then they also get tested. Keep in mind we still don’t have a vaccine to stop the spread. From the ‘get-go’ it’s all about testing-testing-testing. And it’s going on more and more – truly the only way we can track down the human sources of the virus.
Casinos, movie theaters, restaurants and family gatherings where there’s not a facemask in sight will be “dealt with accordingly” according to state officials. Most of the time they’re being ordered to hunker-down at home for 14 days to see what happens. Again, medical treatment-mixes work on most Covid-19 victims. Only a small fraction of those infected die.
Again, the central strategy of Governor Sisolak’s “Strike-Team-Covid” is to fan out across the state, assess the spread of the pandemic, put communities and business owners on notice that they must follow the rules on wearing facemasks, even in public, stay six feet away from the nearest human, wash their hands frequently throughout the day and stay away from crowds – ANY CROWDS.
Scientists say developing a vaccine to fight the virus is a giant horse-race around the globe. Something like 30+ vaccine operations are racing to see who can get an effective vaccine to market the quickest. We expect the first vaccine to hit the market sometime before Christmas. Only those that are medically vulnerable will get the first vaccinations. Those without troublesome medical conditions will likely get their inoculations starting in March or April. But some medical sources say it could be sooner depending on how fast the new vaccines are created and distributed.
