Somebody might want to ask what happened to the other 20 ICU Beds and Trained Staff that the County has had for the last year? That is a Huge difference, remember it used to be 20% Availability which was 13 available. Today even with this number shows only 5 available for 780,000 residents.
The question I ask is why would any City or County think this is the time to discuss or promote Recovery. California is in a raging Global Pandemic, It has never been worse than it is today. It will get better when 70% of Americans are vaccinated that looks like that will happen around August. In the mean time there are not enough ICU Beds and Trained Staff or Vaccine doses to even apply to the 1A group. So who thinks its a great idea to have this Recovery Zoom Meeting with Lenny Mendonca besides the County and the Chamber of Commerce?
The Time for Social and Economic Recovery will be when ALL of the public is Safe, It’s that simple and Now is not that time.
I couldn’t help but notice they fail to mention Lenny Mendonca’s 36 year relationship with McKinsey & Company.
McKinsey & Company Consulted Perdue Pharma and recently agreed to pay $573,000,000.00 in settlement agreement.
McKinsey & Company consulted ICE and Custom and Border Protection.
McKinsey & Company consulted New York City to reduce Jail violence. It increased.

If you haven’t read the Crimson Contagion Exercise of 2019, you might want to it was a 9 month exercise by the Trump administration to show the weaknesses and strengths of America in the event of a Pandemic caused by a virus that came form China. The exercise took place from January-September 2019.
This was a Nine Month Exercise put on by the Trump Administration from Jan to September 2019.
The Crimson Contagion 2019 Functional Exercise included robust participation from federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal communities, as well as from private sector partners including the White House National Security Council. Participation included 19 federal departments and agencies, 12 states, 15 tribal nations and pueblos, 74 local health departments and coalition regions, 87 hospitals, and over 100 healthcare and public health private sector partners.
Alex Azar was part of it and San Mateo County Health EMS Agency allegedly participated.
In this exercise The virus is in the “acceleration phase”, the phase during which the number of cases consistently increases. That sounds familiar doesn’t it also they predicted 586,000 Deaths in America alone.
Remember this report was produced in September 2019.
San Mateo County Finally Enforcing State Orders. Enforcement is the most important part of any Order.
Thursday Jan 21, 2021 Hon. Judge Danny Chou granted the county’s request for a temporary restraining order that Pacifica Beach Yoga immediately shut down.
San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers “Our community rightly expects that when its state government imposes shelter-in-place laws, those laws will be enforced justly and equitably to ensure that everyone is playing by the same rules.
Dr. Scott Morrow issued a statement Yesterday Jan 19, 2021. Here are the takeaways. Plan for 1 more year.
Late Summer is August “Many will get first dose by late summer.”
“If you are confused, don’t be alarmed. We are all confused,” Morrow said residents should instead focus on practicing gratitude and patience.
“The solution is to ramp up production,” said Morrow, adding, “I don’t know how feasible this is.”
It’s unclear how many doses have actually been shipped into the county or how many have been administered. Other than the fraction of doses shipped to County Health, local officials are unable to track shipments to multi-county health care providers or the commercial pharmacies treating long-term care facility residents and staff.
Getting vaccinated will not immediately exempt inoculated residents from COVID-19 health restrictions, noted Morrow who suggested mask wearing, social distancing and not gathering will be necessary through most of the new year.
Let’s give the new Federal Administration who is actually interested in giving the vaccines to the American Public a couple of weeks to see what they say.
San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa is well known for his Interviews and Opinions in front to the television cameras. His opinions on the COVID-19 Pandemic have been like a Roller-Coaster up and down and all over the place.

Hello Dave, Can you tell me how many long term care residents have received the first and second doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine as of today? How many long term care residents does SMC have? Last weeks Burlingame’s Facility outbreak brought back memories for me personally, that is where my father spent the last days of his life. I think we can agree this population is the most likely to fill the Hospital ICU beds once they get COVID-19 and most likely to die.
Thank You, in advance for your response. Michael G. Stogner, San Mateo County News.com
With all the media overload different topics for the residents to be inform about. I have always thought the ICU Beds and Trained Staff is one of the Most Important subjects to be concerned about. It is the best measurement of Safety and Capacity. It is not to be confused with the 88 surge beds which has always remained constant.
San Mateo County has 2 ICU Beds and Staff available that’s all for all eight Hospitals. That is a Big Deal and one of the Only topics the leadership of SMC should have been concerned about for the last 11 months.
It’s fair to say that COVID-19 is more dangerous today than it has ever been. All of the normal reasons to go to the Hospital remain the same, Heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, Domestic Violence, etc and only 2 ICU Beds and Trained Staff are available.
Last Tuesday I was one of the few Public Speakers on the Zoom meeting of the Board of Supervisors. I reminded them that the County had only 2 ICU Beds and Trained Staff available. That is Critical.
My recommendation for the County Leaders is to stop the Happy Talk, and make sure all the Hospitals have the proper amount of Trained Staff.
Everybody knew this was going to happen, No surprise.
NO Warnings, Penalties can include fines up to $35,000 and jail terms for passengers who assault or threaten airline crews or other passengers.
“First strike and you’re out
The new policy took effect immediately and is to continue through March 30
If you don’t want to WEAR A MASK don’t Fly. Good Job FAA.
FAA to crack down on unruly airline travelers FAA CHIEF Stephen Dickson signed an order under which unruly passengers will no longer get warnings. (Graeme Jennings Associated Press) associated press Federal safety officials said Wednesday that they’re stepping up enforcement against unruly airline passengers after confrontations took place on flights to and from Washington in the days before and after last week’s pro-Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol. The Federal Aviation Administration said there has been “a disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior. These incidents have stemmed both from passengers’ refusals to wear masks and from recent violence at the U.S. Capitol.” The FAA said that under an order signed by Administrator Stephen Dickson, unruly passengers will no longer get warnings. Instead, the agency said it will launch legal enforcement actions. Penalties can include fines up to $35,000 and jail terms for passengers who assault or threaten airline crews or other passengers. The new policy took effect immediately and is to continue through March 30. It won quick praise from the head of the largest U.S. flight attendants’ union. “First strike and you’re out. We applaud FAA Administrator Dickson for taking this clear stand for our safety and security,” Sara Nelson, president of the Assn. of Flight Attendants, said in a statement. The FAA said it has pursued more than 1,300 enforcement actions against passengers in the last 10 years. It did not immediately provide a count of recent cases, some of which involve passengers who assaulted flight attendants who told them to wear a face covering during the pandemic. Videos of several recent incidents have been shared widely on social media; some show people who were removed from planes for refusing to wear masks. The FAA has resisted calls for a federal mask rule, but all leading U.S. airlines require passengers to wear them with exceptions generally made only for children under 2. Some lawmakers and airline union officials have demanded that people who took part in the riot at the Capitol be placed on the federal no-fly list. The FAA said it does not have authority over that list but works with law enforcement agencies on security threats.
Last week I asked San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy how many vaccine injections into arms have taken place in the entire county. Once I saw that Operation Warp Speed being promoted by our Federal Government telling us that 20,000,000 Americans would be vaccinated by December 31, 2020 was really less than 3,000,000, I wanted to know what is actually happening in San Mateo County.
This morning I received an e-mail from SMC Manager Mike Callagy in response to my question.
Over 12,000 individuals have been given their 1st dose.
