Quoted @mjchiusano

A striking part of visiting LI hospitals over the last few weeks was the sight of COVID patients flipped on stomachs to increase oxygen flow, unconscious "Proning" is effective but startling, and one way ppl might be surprised at the dire scenes in ICUs https://t.co/eIsqqFYeLs

It's important to not lose sight of the ICU. @mjchiusano takes us right up to the bedside as COVID-19 ravages Long Island. I'd never even heard of "proning" before. https://t.co/DIz7aQETTc

Many people in ICUs can get better, thanks to new treatments and expertise and more staffing-power (when there's fewer patients). But the optimism is tempered. "I am so happy," one doctor said as she left the room of a patient who had been on a vent for 15 days but was improving

At one point I watched a new ICU patient get wheeled in, already intubated, and learned that the patient's son thought his father would be on the vent for just a few days. I saw other patients who had been intubated for weeks.

These descriptions of patients being "proned" are shocking and disturbing... you do not want to get Covid https://t.co/qDHzOYn3Ah

Most of us don't get to see these images of patients lying on the brink of death, often half-falling off their hospital beds, their gowns disheveled from flipping. 

That's part of the problem, per @mjchiusano

.@mjchiusano spent weeks traveling through Covid ICUs across NY. Read his haunting dispatch about patients who are "proned"-- laid on their stomachs to coax more air into their lungs-- for days or weeks, just lying there waiting to get better or die. https://t.co/yx0L3hJLGO

She was at LSU at the same time as David Duke. She grew up seeing crosses burning on lawns in her town. She went to segregated schools until college, where she regularly heard racial slurs. A pretty amazing story: https://t.co/swf4Z5oYeX

If confirmed as UN Ambassador, she'll be representing us all at the UN. What a life story. https://t.co/R70KAVScH6

Biden's UN pick Linda Thomas-Greenfield's TED talk about going from segregated Louisiana schools to a hostile LSU campus to serving in Rwanda during the 1994 genocide is really worth a watch. "Adversity is a source of strength." https://t.co/swf4Z5oYeX

This statement, from Republican Aaron Van Langevelde who crossed over to vote with Democrats on the MI Board of Canvassers to certify the Michigan election results, is really something. This is putting country over party.

Via @axios: "The media remains fairly clueless about the America that exists outside of the big cities, where most political writers and editors live. The coverage missed badly the surge in Trump voters in places obvious and less obvious."  https://t.co/YWRv9dYy9Q #axiosam

Covid is also a huge part of this problem. In a normal campaign, reporters are travelling all over the country to talk to as many people as they can— this time, many reporters were grounded for safety reasons https://t.co/3v9xxHu6mC

We all look back at moments in history and wonder how did people—did leaders—let something patently immoral and destructive occur on their watch day after day, week after week, and say nothing—do nothing. Remain silent. That’s happening right now in the US.

I watched part of The Insider this morning and it was really strange to imagine a time when it was imagined that information would lead to progress int he world — to see it so clearly assumed that if only he spoke, things would be better.

read @abbyabrams on how grief has turned political, with Covid-19 turning former Trump supporters against the President https://t.co/0FBpLZnK2B

Covid has forced the city to bury people so fast that sometimes people get mistakenly put on Hart Island, the city's Potter's field. Then, sometimes, they have to be dug up. Amazing story by @wjhenn https://t.co/4DzaOIulk6

And don't miss @wjhenn's chilling dispatch from Hart Island, where Covid's unclaimed victims are laid to rest. https://t.co/4DzaOIulk6

So much great Covid coverage from my @time colleagues today. Start with @Jamie_Ducharme's cover story about the Covid winter ahead of us, and how human nature "can be as dangerous a variable as any pathogen" https://t.co/tYTQpOcdVx
