2nd Death from Covid-19 reported in Mono County | 9th Death reported in Inyo County

2 more deaths reported in the Eastern Sierra. One each in Inyo and Mono counties.

It has always seemed too good to be true, the very low mortality rates in the Eastern Sierra through the past 6 months. The surge in Inyo County from just one death to many months later, 9 deaths as of today, largely the result of the poor decisions of a few care center employees.

Now, after as many months, Mono County has reported another death, bring their total to 2. It’s not a huge jump in mortality, but every death is sad and affects people in many ways. There will likely be more, especially as we enter the annual flu season while still in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s keep our thoughts and prayers for the families of those that are dealing with this pandemic in ways most of us cannot imagine.

There was no press release from Inyo County on today’s death at the time of this posting.

Following is the press release from Mono County Health Department:

    No… I think that most of these deaths are on those care center employees that partied.

      yes BobK, …… that falls into the category: “those that still refuse to wear a mask” and “those that claim their personal freedoms outweigh science and public health orders” One and the same.

      BobK I respectfully disagree. While the tragic circumstances at Bishop Care center should be investigated further I didn’t think it fair to comment on something of which I have very few facts. I believe Inyos 9 deaths ultimately rest on the shoulders of those who would deny science and reality.

    So Inyo County has 149 confirmed cases and 9 deaths.
    That’s more than a 5% mortality rate locally.
    To all those who insisted this was no worse than the flu these deaths are on you.
    To all those that still refuse to wear a mask these deaths are on you.
    To all those that claim their personal freedoms outweigh science and public health orders
    these deaths are on you.

      “these deaths are on you”
      What kind of a Puritanical moralizer are you? What absolutley pernicious claptrap.

      What shall we say about the skyrocketing suicides and despair and wasted educational opportunities for the kids and societal unraveling? That they are on you?
