Today’s Three Deaths From COVID-19 Push Humboldt County Past Milestone 100 Lives Lost to Pandemic

COVID DEATHPress release from Humboldt County Public Health:

Humboldt County Public Health has reported the deaths of three residents over the age of 80 from COVID-19. One hundred one local residents have died from the virus. The staff of the Department Operations Center share their condolences with friends, family and caregivers of those who died.

Thirty-five new cases have been reported in the county today, bringing to 8,765 the total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus. Two hospitalizations were also reported, including one person in their 40s and one person in their 60s.

As of Tuesday, Humboldt County Public Health and other local vaccinators have administered a total of 155,473 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. An additional 958 residents have been fully vaccinated since the last weekly report on Sept. 29. A total of 77,688, or slightly more than 65% of the vaccine-eligible population age 12 and older, are fully vaccinated. Just over 72% of the vaccine-eligible population has received at least one dose.

Johnson & Johnson announced yesterday that it is seeking authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use of its COVID-19 vaccine for booster shots. The FDA’s Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee is scheduled to meet Oct. 14 and 15, to consider requests from Johnson & Johnson as well as Moderna, which submitted initial data in support of boosters to the FDA on Sept. 1. At the same meeting, the committee will discuss data on using a booster dose different from the one used in the primary series, or so-called “mixing and matching” of vaccine brands. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

Given the level of COVID-19 transmission in the community, residents — particularly unvaccinated individuals — are urged to get tested if they are experiencing symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.

No-cost testing is available through OptumServe seven days a week at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka and at mobile testing sites throughout the county most weekdays. To make an appointment, visit lhi.care/covidtesting or call 888-634-1123. Turnaround times for test results through OptumServe average two to three days.

Vaccination and testing services are available free of charge in Humboldt County. All eligible residents are encouraged to get vaccinated against the virus as the most effective way to prevent hospitalization or death.

Appointments for Public Health vaccination clinics are not required but are now strongly recommended due to a recent increase in demand for additional doses and boosters. Sign up in advance at MyTurn.ca.gov. For instructions in English and Spanish on how to use My Turn, go to humboldtgov.org/VaccineInfo.

COVID-19 hospitalizations have dropped by half from the summer peak, as California continues to steadily, if slowly, shake off the worst of the Delta surge.

“We are very encouraged by the downward trends over the past couple of weeks, but we realize … this could change as we move into the winter and holiday season if people aren’t careful, and also if we don’t maintain momentum on increasing vaccination rates,” said Dr. Christina Ghaly, Los Angeles County’s director of health services. https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2021-10-06/california-shaking-off-worst-of-delta-variant

I’m pretty concerned about the mental health of the average anti-vax “conspiracy nut”… Simple. Get vaccinated. Now you are better equipped to fight off potentially lethal infection! Isn’t that good enough for you? Take a break, Breathe. Feel better? Here is something actually worth worrying about: Over 2000 “Nuclear Devices” were exploded in “tests”, back in the day… Now, people are getting various kinds of cancer, at much higher rates, and at younger ages! mRNA Vaccines may soon be used to try and prevent Cancers like Breast Cancer: https://mrna.creative-biolabs.com/mrna-vaccines-development.htm?gclid=CjwKCAjwtfqKBhBoEiwAZuesiLnGdXIR3j_7h2oMnQ40uZKm8uh72YJ4Kwo3rC7ZXV4uZRwLgO56xBoC-3EQAvD_BwE Better you should worry about environmental pollution, carcinogenic foodstuffs, and the presence of plastics and hormones in the food and water supplies! The COVID vaccine is not a plot to control you, but in the past, the government spent considerable energy and money while working to end life on this planet completely! Good luck surviving COVID, and if you refuse to be vaccinated, the government will continue to find ways to force you to get vaccinated anyway… Here’s the next way: All persons receiving any form of “government assistance” whether UI, SDI, AFDC, Medicare or Medi-Cal, GA etc, etc, will soon be required to show proof of vaccination to receive or… Read more »

You’re truly a psychopath.

Do you even read what you’ve written here?

You want to forcibly inject your community members? Take away their food and healthcare unless they comply?

How about a bit of compassion and empathy. There are a myriad of reasons people are disinterested in taking this vaccine and they’re all valid.

Vaccine mandates are also incredibly racist, as POC are the least vaccinated nationwide.

Well, I think one very valid reason is that they have already had a recent confirmed case of Covid. Recent studies show that natural immunity seems to be as good if not better than vaccines.

Sure the known risks of the vaccine are small, but why take any risk if you already have a strong natural immunity? What about unknown risks of the vaccine? I think it is unlikely that there are any, but nobody can say that with complete assurance.

Other “valid reasons” would be if they are young and healthy, the serious risks of Covid are pretty darn small. Or perhaps they just have such a strong distrust of government and big pharma that they would rather go it alone. You and I may not consider that a “valid” reason, but who are we to say they are wrong? Let them make their own decision.

So you just said the government has plotted to end life completely in the past, then said the government will force people to get vaccinated against their will and you think it’s because they like us now? Are they trying to end life or save it? I’m confused.

They might if this irresponsible vaccination campaign is continued. Vaccines should be used for high risk groups. That’s it. Read the UCSF study! It is the first confirmation of what was already known.. that the vaccinated are generating resistant mutants that have the potential to select for younger, healthier people. I am for vaccines, but the dangers of this program were never made clear to the public, and the potential outcomes are terrifying.

There is no study supporting your claims. We know that viral load is strongly tied to severity of symptoms and that the un vaccinated have more serve symptoms on average.That is why the pre-publication study you are referring to was suspicious immediately.

Even if the vaccinated had similar viral loads once infected (other studies showing that is not true and pointing out that there was no distinction between viable viral DNA and dead fragments) they are less likely to become infected or reinfected.

You are smuggling in your theory about the vaccinated spreading variants, it was not part of the study, and it had been explained here several times that is not how viral evolution works. Im not going to explain it again.

The vaccines are specifically targeted to the spike protein of the original strain. When a vaccinated person encounters the virus, their antibodies suppress what is close enough to the original, while allowing the mutant variations to replicate, thereby creating strains that can become dominant, endangering others while potentially generating more deadly strains. Perhaps focus on actually studying subjects and understanding them instead of looking at studies that you can parse properly

If unvaccinated people have more severe symptoms I think it’s safe to assume they are going to be at home sick with that high viral load. Or are there waves of sick people walking around coughing on people that I am not seeing?

You can’t say asymptomatic spread is the problem while also saying unvaccinated people are the only ones spreading this.

You apparently ignore the endless links, articles, and analysis supplied here on the work of virologist like luc montagnier and links directing you to the videos on dark horse media. If you need every reference to the obvious disaster that has unfolded post vaccine campaign supported (by a source reputable, in YOUR opinion) you haven’t been paying very good attention. The gist of the “unbearable crap:” “Mass vaccination in the middle of a pandemic is prone to promoting selection and adaptation of immune escape variants that are featured by increasing infectiousness and resistance to spike protein (S)-directed antibodies (Abs), thereby diminishing protection in vaccinees and threatening the unvaccinated.” ***This already explains why the WHO’s mass vaccination program is not only unable to generate herd immunity (HI) but even leads to substantial erosion of the population’s immune protective capacity,” he continues. “As the ongoing universal mass vaccination program will soon promote dominant propagation of highly infectious, neutralization escape mutants (i.e., so-called ‘S Ab-resistant variants’), naturally acquired, or vaccinal neutralizing Abs, will, indeed, no longer offer any protection to immunized individuals whereas high infectious pressure will continue to suppress the innate immune defense system of the nonvaccinated.” “This is to say that… Read more »

Kym, I understand your frustration, but may I remind you that Covid originating in a lab was considered unsupported crap not so long ago, now it is the most likely scenario, Trumps collusion with Russia was considered a fact, until we found out it was actually a contrived disinformation campaign concocted by Hillary and the Dems with lying FBI and DOJ agents. Facebook and other social media still ban any talk of Ivermectin or other possible cheap therapeutics. Don’t go down that road Kym, better to err on the side of freedom. While I don’t agree with Lou’s statement, there are doctors who think it is more likely that vaccine resistant strains are more likely to develop in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated, so at least part of what Lou stated is supported my some medical professionals. That said, the majority of doctors disagree with that theory and even if true, the vaccine still is likely the safest and most effective route to limit the danger of Covid. My argument is that Lou isn’t convincing anybody Kym. He is not a danger to society by posting his somewhat ridiculous claims. Don’t spend so much time worrying what his effect is,… Read more »

Campaigners for the drug point to a number of scientific studies and often claim this evidence is being ignored or covered up. But a review by a group of independent scientists has cast serious doubt on that body of research.
The BBC can reveal that more than a third of 26 major trials of the drug for use on Covid have serious errors or signs of potential fraud. None of the rest show convincing evidence of ivermectin’s effectiveness.
Dr Kyle Sheldrick, one of the group investigating the studies, said they had not found “a single clinical trial” claiming to show that ivermectin prevented Covid deaths that did not contain “either obvious signs of fabrication or errors so critical they invalidate the study”

Unfortunately allegations so off the wall that it’s a wonder anyone can believe do find a small but dedicated coterie of supporters. Things like moon landing was fake on the US government plotted the 9/11 attacks. They then spread like fungus rotting the entire structure. People like this do not have to make sense to do their damage. They just have keep creating more doubt about things that have some doubts about them in the first place. They don’t have to convince. They just have to sow discord. Reason does not serve their cause and just double down on irrationality instead. Thus things like more than 20%- sometimes much more than that – of nursing home workers for example refuse to get vaccinated. They then spread disease to the most vulnerable people, who in turn end up in the hospital and, having filled the beds and exhausted the staff, cause other people not to be able get the care they need. The deaths go up, people become more fearful and in turn demand politicians do “something”, which almost always an over reaction and creates more problems.

I won’t argue the merits of lab origin or Russiagate with you as they are actually irrelevant to my stance, but the fact that these are at least viable possibilities and that these possibilities were completely censored just a short time ago should give you pause. Yes, without censorship people will say foolish things. I would disagree with “dangerous” as I think perhaps you give too much meaning to an anonymous blog post. I feel it is much like the justice system where we say it is better to let 10 guilty people go free rather than convict one innocent person. I find it far more dangerous to censor one truth than let 10 falsehoods be posted. Another consideration is that you could run afoul of Section 230 protections. You are allowed to censor things such as pornography, personal attacks, etc when done in “good faith”, but when you start morphing into the arbiter of truth and censoring people for political opinions or posts that you consider falsehoods, you open the door to losing your protections as you are now directly controlling the content rather than simply being a third party host.

“If you continue it without providing any support for this,”

VANDEN BOSSCHE & MALONE: COVID-19 GIANTS UNITE – The HighWire

You reject support from highly credentialed, practicing doctors while quoting lying bureaucrats. Your answer is boringly predictable and always the same: “that is not a credible source” (followed by an opposing link you haven’t read). Just yesterday you referred me to WAPO ( an “unreliable” source) as proof that Project Veritas is unreliable, even though PV is just filming people IN THEIR OWN WORDS and your link proved nothing.

 “I’m deleting what appears to me outright lies.”

Way to go. That’ll lead to the truth. Everything you disagree with appears to you as outright lies. Your incessant threats to ban people/sources for their opinion (wrongthink) is simply intellectual laziness. It’s emblematic of the current problem of censorship in our society and the path to more division, eventually authoritarianism; it’s disgusting. 

Min 18 on the video is an explanation of ADE that you won’t watch. Easier just ban people and delete things you disagree with.

Veterinary medicine was his start! Have you looked at the high standards required to become a “VET?”

You seem to have missed the part about his PHD in virology !

Vanden bossche discredited ? Prove it. More like censored, muted and cancelled. It shows an astounding lack of respect to dismiss his resume so flippantly.

“He received his DVM from the University of Ghent, Belgium, and his PhD degree in Virology from the University of Hohenheim, Germany.

He has worked for several vaccine companies (GSK Biologicals, Novartis Vaccines, Solvay Biologicals) to serve various roles in vaccine research and development as well as in late vaccine development.

He also joined the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Health Discovery team in Seattle (USA) as Senior Program Officer before working with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) in Geneva as Senior Ebola Program Manager.

At GAVI he tracked efforts to develop an Ebola vaccine.

He also represented GAVI in fora with other partners, including WHO, to review progress on the fight against Ebola and to build plans for global pandemic preparedness.

He then joined the German Center for Infection Research in Cologne as Head of the Vaccine Development Office”

Your speaking nonsense and don’t seem like a nice person. I assume you’ve done all the research on the Darwinian selection pressures of viruses as it pertains to evolutionary pressures and the potential outcomes? Or perhaps you could thoughtfully explain the history of corona vaccines and ADE? What are the mechanisms and why does it occur? How are the experts so sure that this will not occur once neutralizing antibodies wane?
I’m waiting…. Since your IQ is high you should have good answers promptly

ADE is a function of the virus to be able to hijack antibodies. It is a property of the virus and so far SARS-COV-2 has not shown the ability to do so. And the vaccines were designed to avoid that if it was possible because the developers were very aware of the possibility with a few other viruses. And if it was possible, the virus would do it with natural infections too as neutralizing antibodies disappear in both vaccines and natural infections. It is actually vaccines that create more neutralizing antibodies.

But the exact opposite has happened. Secondary infections to both vaccinated and unvaccinated have been almost universally more mild. Not enhanced. Even when the efficacy in preventing infection has waned, ADE has not shown up when there has been enough time for it to do so.

It is you who need to come up with an explanation as to why you think ADE would raise itself as an isssue when it has not so far. Not for people who can see it hasn’t.

Exactly, Nooo,

If ADE was becoming an issue,
due to waning efficacy, and that was leading to increasing vaccinated hospitalizations and deaths, (which were supposed to be virtually non-existent), we would be hearing about an increasing, greater urgency for the importance of additional doses and boosters, over and above what we are hearing about, concerning the urgency for initial vaccination for those who have not already been vaccinated.

In fact if ADE was even an issue, especially if the head of the CDC was already aware of it, she would be overruling her advisory committee, if they didn’t recommend additional doses an boosters, because that is the only way to mitigate and disguise it.

And that isn’t happening, either…

Oh wait!… My bad!…

This is the first year of the vaccination campaign. Most still have a fair amount of neutralizing antibodies. Like I stated above, if it does not surface by spring time in people that have not received a booster, it’s looking better, and that’s great. It’s too early to say for sure, which is why it’s on the minds of folks. Also, continuous boosters to maintain neutralizing antibodies poses its own set of serious risks.

Basically, if ADE does not surface by next spring in people that have encountered the virus again while not yet receiving a booster, than I would be more willing to drop it from the conversation. In previous animal studies ADE became evident after being exposed when neutralizing antibodies were very low. The average vaccine recipient is between 40-60% currently. When this wanes even more, the reality will be revealed. ADE does occur in natural infections as well, but not to the same extent and not as often, because of the nature of the neutralizing antibodies, targeting the virus much more holistically. It is the narrow targeting of the vaccine that could potentially amplify ADE as well as create escape mutants. Everybody says follow the science, while forgetting it has not neared its destination. And now the mandates are heading toward small children, so it’s kinda a big deal

Kym,
Can we speak in general terms?

It seems to me, what would increase anyone’s chances of getting it, would be more about; the more that person moves through the community, than, the more the virus moves through it.

Everyone is free to modify their behaviour, in order to protect themselves.

Unlike the ever changing viral load theories, one way or another, that freedom doesn’t still need to be peer reviewed.

I am somewhat elderly, old enough to be concerned with being exposed to others who are vaccinated or not, so I limit it.

I do not expect anyone else to get this vaccine on behalf of me or anyone else, family or not.

Especially since it is temporary, and doesn’t work that well.

Can you give me an example of any other ‘vaccine’, that people were required to take, not in order to protect the recipient, but to protect the more vulnerable, who have also gotten the ‘vaccine’?

In order to make the average lifespan of a vaxxed person in Mendocino 95 years old, allot of the vaxxed that have died obviously would have to have died of Covid19 older than 95.
But there was only one that was 98, and only two that were 96. That’s it.

Then, one was 94, and then the next oldest was 85, and at that point, the average drops below 95, to 93.8.
Then the ages drop to, 84, 82, 79, 77, and 66, and therefore, the average, only drops further with each one, respectively, to; 92.2, 90.7, 89.3, 87.9, and finally, for the ten, an average of 85.7 years old.
The age of the first vaxxed death, and others I could not find vax status for, but one or two more won’t change things much, and would likely bring it down lower.

After Dr. Coren made his ’95’ assertion, one more 86 year old vaxxed Covid19 death occurred.

At any rate, there aren’t 10 more vaxxed, that average 104.3 yrs old, that have already died of Covid19 previous to his assertion, that would be necessary to make the ’95 average’ statement true.

Maybe he meant to say 85?

90 percent of the population didn’t “ socially distance “ , not in any meaningful way, let’s not kid ourselves.

Masking may have helped prevent large globs of spit from flying out of your mouth on to someone else’s face. Did it prevent tiny virus particles from escaping ? Not a chance unless you were wearing an N95 mask or better .

There is a vaccine now. Anyone who wants it should take it, especially old people, and also fat people because according to science that’s who the virus is really taking a toll on.

The virus isn’t going away.
The vaccines effectiveness wanes over time meaning tff he at every 8 months we will have to play this game where you end up not being fully vaccinated at some point and need a booster shot but not everyone will get a booster shot so they’ll be the scapegoat for the next variant and on and on and on.

A 90 day survey does not tell the story. Only the tale of the latest delta surge.
It conveniently leaves out states such as California, New York, New Jersey which have the most restrictions and results which place them in the middle of the pack. At least I remember California was just ranked 32nd in the nation for deaths per 100,000. Almost 2 years into the pandemic, do you think a 90 day survey that does not include all states sets the narrative?

What should make you sick is that 100’s of thousands of people were sent home to DIE unneccessarily when there are VERY safe theraputics (Ivermectin, Hydroxychloriquine, Fluvoxamine) that mounting evidence is showing could have potentially saved their lives.

Whats more sickening is the vaccine cult excoriating those theraputics while ignoring 15 THOUSAND deaths on VAERS and over 100 THOUSAND SERIOUS side effects and all they can do keep on bleating like zombies: get the jab, get the jab, get the jab!

All three of the vaccines use aborted fetes stem cells in either development [1] or production [2].
That is a concerning factor to many folks.

Vermont ranked last in cases recently. Doing phenomenally better then Florida for example. That website should be called “misinfowars”.

The virus contain material from fetal cell lines established in the 1960’s and 70’s. No fetus were harmed in the making of the vaccines.

There is evidence to be concerned about long term health effects for the infected, so far no reason to be concerned about long term effects of the vaccinations.

This is the abortion issue/vaccine info I am referring to:

See https://www.nebraskamed.com/COVID/you-asked-we-answered-do-the-covid-19-vaccines-contain-aborted-fetal-cells(Last visited August 10, 2021) (“Pfizer and Moderna have performed confirmatory testing … on fetal cell lines.

Israel is on what…the 4th mRNA jab……. when does the vaccine provide immunity?

The tricky part of the whole “humane” and “compassion” angle is that we are currently destroying our planet and it’s ability to sustain our lives through our massive overpopulation. All of the deaths from Covid are nowhere near close enough to recover balance. I’m not in favor of killing anybody or wishing them dead but…ummm…I think I’ve made my point.

Oil has allowed the transportation, the roads are made of oil..the insecticides, the herbicides… the COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS!!!! [like that all caps?… kind of fun]. Life comes down to calories per day. Without the oil…. there would not be corporate ag… pharmacuticals…. and so forth.

So… a bit off course from COVID…but I was a business major…. say the fake US currency collapses. Say finance fails…and the oil doesn’t move anymore.

A million people taking the vaccine has not lead to any of the anti vaxxers’ doom scenarios. They are pretty bad at prognostication. And even worse at dealing with probabilities.

I don’t know the percentage of bad reactions to the jab.

I also don’t know how many people’s lives have been saved by same. No doubt lots of folks have been saved by the mRNA. This is not a debatable fact.

We do not know the long term effects of mRNA gene therapy… this is also a fact. Only time will give answers to long term effects to a vaccine that works on a cellular level..reprogramming the very cells of the human being. Hopefully…no ill effects at all.

Weren’t we told at 70% vaccination we would reach herd immunity?

So we’re all good now? No?

Oh… the vaccines don’t actually work? We need 100% vaccinated and never ending boosters?

Thank god we’re following science!

The ICUs are mostly filled with those who have diligently refused “the science.” They knew best. They knew that covid was just the flu, that vaccines were more dangerous than the disease and that it was all a big pharma lie. Hmm… maybe there should be an exit poll on their opinions now. If they exit able to voice an opinion of course.

Kym, do you feel good about allowing your readers to wish death upon those choosing not to take the vaccine?

Do you ever consider writing a piece on the many varied reasons a person may opt not to take the vaccine?

The way this is framed is so incredibly one sided, and its alarming to say the least.

How much did you make out with jn covid bucks? Is that why you are participating in such biased reporting on this topic?

The lack of humanity is disgusting and highly disturbing.

Agreed. There are very good reasons for individuals on both sides of the issue. To lump everybody on the one side (either side) and then wish them death or hatred is disturbing and extremist. Just like the last presidential election and the one before…nobody who does this gets to claim they are “considerate”, “humane”, “compassionate” or even “decent”. What happened to reason? Are we all hate and fear now? Well…I refuse that mindset and I hope others will also.

Re, “Are we all hate and fear now?” …

I harbor something approaching both of those two conditons… disgust and great concern. I endeavor to do something about each, but not always successfully. Disgust is the tough one to contend with.

You have cause.

Your disgust is how any normal person should feel when their tax dollars have been used to develop a bio weapon that is being used to inject a malware into our operating systems.

That is .01% deaths. Diabetes in 2020 was at 24.6% death rate. Why are we pushing so hard for this vaccine while insulin prices are through the roof?

Okay, that is not even close to accurate.
You are conflating two different types of measurements.

24.6% of people with diabetes did not die in 2020.
24.6 people per 100,000 died of diabetes.
About 10X that many died of Covid.

I do agree that insulin prices are ridiculously high though.

I am so sick of people questioning Ms Kemp,s journalistic integrity and sincerity. She is a highly respected journalist and community member.. She received the 2018 Unsung Hero award from the Society of Professional Journalists in Northern Calif. Hurling insults does not back up a claim…it only shows your ignorance. Just because you think it’s true does not make it true. If you can provide a link from a respected and trustworthy news site to back your claims fine. Other wise it’s just what you think is true.

She’s got a good heart, and tireless work ethic, that does not mean she isn’t capable of being fooled by a massive campaign of propaganda.

It happens to us everyday.

Not sure how these comments got out of order, but my comment was in reply to efox’s comment below.

I believe he is editing comments, and/or then reposting them out of order, to throw things off.

Fun, fun, fun.
