CORONAVIRUS: Sunday 5/24 roundup

With one week left until the current expiration date for the stay-home order, here’s our nightly roundup:

NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: From the Public Health daily-summary dashboard:

*7,819 people have tested positive, up 55 from yesterday

*540 people have died, up 2 from yesterday

One week ago, those totals were 7,480 and 522.


WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: See them – nation by nation – here.

WHAT’S OPEN/WHAT’S CLOSED? Not that tomorrow’s forecast sounds much like park weather, but if you need a refresher on Seattle Parks closures, here you go.

CEREMONY NO, POPPIES YES: Despite the pandemic, one Memorial Day tradition will carry on tomorrow.

INSPIRATION: Lisa sent this photo of inspiring words in the window at Barre3:

(That’s the same place this window mural turned up last month.)

    Some potentially very good news coming from Dr. R Seheult  today regarding lifelong immunity from SARS-CoV-2 via the adaptive immune system and its helper T cells.  They are finding this function in patients who are positive for Covid 19 and in hospital, and most interestingly, in blood samples taken from other subjects prior to  the pandemic, who have never been infected with covid19, but who appear to have been exposed to a different corona virus at some time in the past. Others on the WSB must be familiar with the MedCram site? Please chime in  if so. I have found this series of lectures to be extremely helpful in coming to terms with our present situation.
