Jeffrey Sachs is an extremely well-educated dude. Undergrad and grad school at Harvard, faculty gigs at Harvard and Columbia, lots of big-brain consulting work with NGO's and various foreign governments; he's obviously not dumb. Which is what makes this recent opinion piece of his at CNN a head-scratcher: "When it ruled this week against New York state's decision to limit religious gatherings in a few high-incidence parts of New York City, the court proved the dangers of scientifically illitera...

How Your COVID-Flooded Hospital Will Triage

Hospitals around the country face a grim winter as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations surge. It’s shaping up to be a national triage situation. But many state and local governments, and hospital associations, have planned for what could be reality in a few weeks. That is, what to do when the number of patients far outstrips the ability of a hospital or health care system to treat them? The upshot is that as numbers continue to grow, the effects of overwhelmed hospitals could stretch far beyond ...

Biden Victory Means Some Guantanamo Prisoners May Be Released

WASHINGTON (AP) — The oldest prisoner at the Guantanamo Bay detention center went to his latest review board hearing with a degree of hope, something that has been scarce during his 16 years locked up without charges at the U.S. base in Cuba. Saifullah Paracha, a 73-year-old Pakistani with diabetes and a heart condition, had two things going for him that he didn’t have at previous hearings: a favorable legal development and the election of Joe Biden.

Who Lives And Who Dies? Bursting COVID Wards Force Docs To Make Dire Decisions

Dr. Jeffrey Pothof is flipping towards the last page of his pandemic book. Yeah, there’s a book. It was prepared in March and lays out a plan for how to accommodate a surge in COVID-19 patients, build out capacity, and eventually ration care. It wasn’t needed then. But Pothof, the chief quality officer for University of Wisconsin Health, needs it now. The last pages, Pothof said, deal with how the hospital will implement its crisis standard of care: when doctors will be forced to decide who c...
