Rebuilding Public Health

To cope with pandemic, and eventually, endemic SARS-CoV-2 and to respond to future public health threats requires deploying real-time information systems, a public health implementation workforce, flexible health systems, trust in government and public health institutions, and belief in the value of collective action for public good.7,8

First, the US needs a comprehensive, digital, real-time, integrated data infrastructure for public health. As Omicron has reemphasized, the US is operating with imprecise estimates of disease spread, limited genomic surveillance, projections based on select reporting sites, and data from other countries that may not be generalizable. These shortcomings are threatening lives and societal function.

The US must establish a modern data infrastructure that includes real-time electronic collection of comprehensive information on respiratory viral infections, hospitalizations, deaths, disease-specific outcomes, and immunizations merged with sociodemographic and other relevant variables. The public health data infrastructure should integrate data from local, state, and national public health units, health care systems, public and commercial laboratories, and academic and research institutions. Using modern technology and analytics, it is also essential to merge nontraditional environmental (air, wastewater) surveillance data, including genomic data, with traditional clinical and epidemiological data to track outbreaks and target containment.

Second, the US needs a permanent public health implementation workforce that has the flexibility and surge capacity to manage persistent problems while simultaneously responding to emergencies. Data collection, analysis, and technical support are necessary, but it takes people to respond to crises. This implementation workforce should include a public health agency–based community health worker system and expanded school nurse system.

A system of community public health workers could augment the health care system by testing and vaccinating for SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory infections; ensuring adherence to ongoing treatment for tuberculosis, HIV, diabetes, and other chronic conditions; providing health screening and support to pregnant individuals and new parents and their newborns; and delivering various other public health services to vulnerable or homebound populations.

School nurses need to be empowered to address the large unmet public health needs of children and adolescents. As polio vaccination campaigns showed, school health programs are an efficient and effective way to care for children, including preventing and treating mild asthma exacerbations (often caused by viral respiratory infections), ensuring vaccination as a condition for attendance, and addressing adolescents’ mental and sexual health needs. School clinics must be adequately staffed and funded as an essential component of the nation’s public health infrastructure.

Third, because respiratory infections ebb and flow, institutionalizing telemedicine waivers, licensure to practice and enable billing across state lines, and other measures that allow the flow of medical services to severely affected regions should be a priority.

Fourth, it is essential to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.7 Communities with higher levels of trust and reciprocity, such as Denmark, have experienced lower rates of hospitalization and death from COVID-19.7 Improving public health data systems and delivering a diverse public health workforce that can respond in real time in communities will be important steps toward building that trust more widely.

    hypotheis 6 ,omths protectiom?

     BALTIMORE —

    New statistics show 30% of those who died from COVID-19 in Maryland over the last six weeks were fully vaccinated, but experts said those numbers can be deceiving.

    That number might sound startling, but researchers said to see the full picture, you need to flip that statistic around. They said the vaccines are still very effective.

    "People who are unvaccinated are on the order of 10 to 15 times more likely to die of COVID-19 than a fully vaccinated person," said Dr. William Moss, of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

    And researchers said that's a statistic everyone should pay attention to. The vast majority of hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 are in those who are not vaccinated.

    "We are seeing younger and younger patients come to the ICU nowadays who are unvaccinated and they're not surviving this," said Dr. Kinjal Sheth, chief of critical care at Northwest Hospital.

    The Maryland Department of Health released statistics that while the total number of deaths in Maryland among vaccinated people since the vaccines came out is .0065%, between Sept. 1 and Oct. 15, they accounted for 30% of COVID-19 deaths.

    "That proportion can be misleading, and the reason why is that as more and more people are vaccinated in the United States, they make up a greater proportion of the deaths," Moss said.

    The state department of health agrees, writing in a statement, "As the number of our residents who are vaccinated continues to increase, we expect to see an increase in the proportion of COVID-related deaths occurring in vaccinated individuals. Many of these deaths are linked to comorbidities that make patients more vulnerable."

    Moss said those risk factors include people over the age of 85 and those with underlying medical conditions.

    "Immunocompromising conditions that place them at high-risk for severe COVID should they get infected and also interferes with their immune response to the vaccine, so they're not as protected as we would like them to be," Moss said.

    The most prominent recent example is the death of Colin Powell, who was 84 and had cancer.

    Moss said booster shots could play a role in reducing the death rate among those fully vaccinated.

    "I think there is evidence that in older age groups that booster doses will help prevent severe disease, but I want to emphasize that our vaccines are holding up pretty well against severe disease, so I don't want people to panic about that," Moss said.

    Moss said a lot of these new cases and deaths are fueled by the delta variant.

     2 things to know if you dont want to kill friends by covid

    vaccine is the only safe way out

    there is as yet no evidence that vaccines last more than 8 months- if someone says there is ask them to show it to you or go to jail and do not pass go

    what this means is we needed a worldwide plane to both make and distribute about 20 million vaccines a year - the failure of any top leader group eg the g7 to take this on must lie on their sould for eternity

    list of many catastrophes caused by powerful people not caring about next generation as 90 days numbers rule vtes

    if there is different evidence why keep it top secret - are people in government public servants or what?

The services provided are based on financial support and advice, technical advice and the support of regional and global networking. Ministries, national civil society organisations and regional networks can apply for funding.

    This project is part of the EU Action "EU digital solutions to strengthen the resilience of education and health systems to COVID-19 in the Eastern, Southern Africa and Indian Ocean Region", which was launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The action is co-funded by the European Union (EU) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is jointly implemented by Enabel (with a focus on TVET and health) and GIZ (with a focus on education) in the context of Team Europe
