6. NPR All Things Considered interview

with Chad Nielson, a health services director in Jackson, FL.

Nielson said the number of cases there now exceeds the peak of last winter. They are getting younger patients and younger deaths. 95% of the patients are unvaccinated. There is a staffing shortage caused by unvaccinated nurses getting covid. Remaining staff is experiencing deja vu feeling of being overwhelmed and burned out.

He also talked about DeSantis criticizing Fauci for advocating face masks for young children who are ineligible for vaccines. DeSantis said he would not "muzzle" his 3 year old. Nielson said that, as an epidemiologist who is seeing covid infections, he has no problem with putting a mask on his own 4 year old. He wears a mask, too, although he is vaccinated.
