Harvard University researchers and epidemiologists are at it again, warning this time that America is nowhere close to having a true picture of the Coronavirus outbreak. Other research and civic groups are beginning to agree.
Harvard University epidemiologists are warning that eradicating COVID-19 from the United States may take a lot longer than anyone wants to hear. As Louisiana broke above the milestone of over 1,000 Coronavirus deaths this week, Science magazine published the findings of Harvard researchers who summarized that Americans could see recurring COVID outbreaks as far out as the year 2024.
“I’ve been waiting for a long time to get married,” says Jeigh Lynn Touchet. “I finally found a man to marry me and I thought ‘now the world will come to an end?’”
Touchet, an X-ray technologist at an area hospital, is on the front line battling this deadly disease. She and fiancée, Scott Thomas, who works for AT&T, have been planning their wedding since their engagement in May 2019. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple’s wedding guest list plumeted from 350 to just ten people, counting themselves.
As Louisiana's Corona virus numbers had seemed to be leveling, suddenly the state Tuesday posted the largest one-day spike in deaths, an additional 129, breaking above 1,000 in Louisiana's COVID-19 fatalities at 1,013.
The badly-deteriorated 6.8-mile stretch of LA 96/Terrace Hwy between St. Martinville and Broussard is in store for a much-needed resurfacing. The project calls for milling, patching, overlay and drainage improverments on the heavily travelled road. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development said Monday that the low bid of $4,747,791 was submitted by Glenn Lege Co. of Youngsville. Work could begin in three to four months and should be completed by the spring of 2021.(Karl Jeter)
