Ordinarily, I would write “I’m sorry, “But at least we’re not Florida” isn’t going to cut it.”, except for the reality in Wards 7 and 8, which is, well, very Southern in its epidemiology. D.C., as a whole increased, though slightly, but Wards 4, 7, and 8 are getting hammered. Here’s a summary:

Ward one week prevalence 挂ssr加速软件 one week % positve two week % positive
1 0.051% 0.117% 挂ssr加速软件 1.0%
2 0.028% 0.066% 0.9% 1.1%
3 0.019% 挂ssr加速软件 0.5% 挂ssr加速软件
4 0.108% 挂ssr加速软件 3.1% 2.5%
5 0.083% 挂ssr加速软件 1.8% 2.1%
6 0.050% 0.094% 1.1% 0.7%
7 0.117% 0.211% 5.7% 5.2%
8 0.099% 0.204% 挂ssr加速软件 3.8%
D.C. total 0.068% 0.134% 2.0% 1.7%

The good news is that, in D.C. as a whole, the percent positives are below five percent (Ward 7 is a slight bit above), meaning we’re doing enough testing, though how quickly we’re doing testing and returning results to those who need them is another issue (not so good there).

One- and two-week prevalences are the number of cases during the last week or last two weeks divided by population. In Germany, a prevalence of 0.05% means a given area has to roll back opening up. Only Wards 2 and three meet that threshold. And to be in the ‘safe zone’, where prevalence is low enough such that you can do somewhat risky things–that is, live a normal-ish life–we really want the two-week prevalence to be around 0.01%. D.C. needs to lower the city-wide prevalence about ten-fold.

While that sounds daunting, if we spitball estimate what prevalence was at the height of the outbreak in D.C., we already lowered the prevalence thirty-fold. It would probably take four weeks or so of a hard shutdown (closing restaurants, churches; moving back to phase zero). But if we did this, we would be where Norway was when going to the gym–without a mask!–was ‘safe’ (it isn’t safe, but when the prevalence is that low, the odds of get sick also are extremely low). Needless to say, we could reopen schools, even if students couldn’t attend every day due to density restrictions.

And if we’re fortunate enough not to have a second Trump term, we need to pay attention to whom Biden appoints to key positions. In terms of economics, Robert Kuttner points out what rank-and-file Democrats need to get ready to yell at Biden about:

…pay very close attention to whom you name to the key economic Cabinet power posts. Those would be the secretaries of Treasury, Commerce, Labor, U.S. trade representative, and budget director. Typically, Democratic presidents find a Wall Streeter to lead Treasury, a business mogul to head Commerce, and a deficit hawk at OMB.

Obama named Tim Geithner to the former and billionaire Penny Pritzker to the latter. The trade job has also typically gone to someone who is in the tank for Wall Street and the hyper-globalization lobby—Mike Froman under Obama. Labor is treated as a second-tier job. So the battle for progressive economic policies is over before it starts.

If Biden wants to be as good as his recent, very progressive words, he needs to change these patterns of political capture.

Find a commerce secretary who believes in industrial policy; and a trade rep who really believes in the great statement Biden put out on rebuilding domestic manufacturing.

At the end of the day, when an administration takes shape, campaign policy papers don’t matter. Personnel does.

No more conservative or Republican daddies (and mommies!) to appear respectable. It’s our fucking turn.

Biden is better than Trump, but we’re going to have to protest him too. I’m not young anymore (to say the least), and the one thing I’ve learned about New Democrats, and Biden is definitely one, is that they will have to be dragged kicking and screaming in order to get them to do the right thing.

Making sure he appoints good people is one of those things, and no mulligans on this, because we’re still waiting for our ‘peace dividend.’ (the olds will remember that…)

Many moons ago, which is to say in early June, some asshole with a blog noted that, instead of using fourteen-day declines–a policy pushed by the conservative failtank AEI and adopted by the CDC–we needed to use prevalence measures. That is, scaled to population, how many people are infected?

This really mattered. In the D.C. area, states and local governments juked the numbers to claim they had fourteen days of decline (or close enough), and then reopened too early. Now, cases are climbing again, and all of the hard work people did was pissed away.

For prevalence, the metric is the number of cases per 100,000 people during a one- or 挂ssr加速软件 (ECDC reports two-week prevalences). For context, Germany institutes restrictions once the one-week prevalence is over 50/100,000 people (as a daily rate, that would be ~7/100,000 per day), a threshold most U.S. states currently breach.

Prevalence is a scary statistic for politicians because it’s really hard to wiggle out of. If you require adequate testing (less than five percent positive), and a certain prevalence threshold, there’s really no way to juke the numbers (though many governors will still try!). You’re either there, or you’re not, and it’s very simple for voters to understand. It’s also scary because, in the U.S., if prevalence were routinely discussed, it would clearly illustrate 挂ssr加速软件. But it is what we should be using.

The good news is that we’re finally starting to talk about prevalence. Between the White House Task Force using prevalence statistics, D.C. using prevalence to put states on a high-risk list, and other people talking about prevalence, we’re finally starting to use the right statistic. Now we need to use the right thresholds. Which brings us to this recent op-ed by Ezekiel Emanuel, Saskia Popescu, and James Phillips.

There’s a lot that’s good in the piece–they lay out what activities are high and low-risk, and offer some concrete suggestions. The problem is this paragraph (boldface mine):

First, schools cannot reopen safely when community transmission is high and climbing. In our view, schools should open only in places that have fewer than 75 confirmed cases per 100,000 people cumulatively over the previous seven days, and that have a test positivity rate below 5 percent. By our count, 12 states and the District of Columbia meet both metrics. In many larger states, some counties or cities meet those criteria. Even with those numbers, 游戏辅助 - 游戏软件 - 非凡软件站:2021-11-16 · 提供最新最全的腾讯游戏辅助、网页游戏辅助、游戏修改器、QQ游戏辅助、网游辅助等各类游戏工软件免费下载。 上古卷轴5天际重制版三十四项修改器v1.下载解压缩,运行游戏,开启游戏开启游戏修改器即可。. (Many countries, such as Japan, Austria and Italy, have suppressed the virus to the extent that they have fewer than one in 10,000 people with confirmed cases.)

First, most schools are much larger than 350 total people. To put this another way, the D.C. school system with 4,000 teachers (never mind students and staff) is pretty much guaranteed to have multiple teachers who are sick on the first day. It doesn’t have to be like that. It shouldn’t be like that. That last sentence shows it’s possible to get to 10 per 100,000, and if we were willing to do the hard work, we could do that.

If we crushed the curve further, we could reopen far more safely. And by requiring a lower threshold, it would be safer for everyone else too. This seems like a political compromise, but viruses don’t do political compromises. Crush the curve to at least 10 per 100,000 in a week (I would prefer lower), and then we all can truly get back to, if not normal, then normal-ish.
