COVID Pandemic Dec 29th 2021: – 820,000 USA Covid deaths- 53.3 million covid cases in USA. 5.4 million deaths worldwide- 240 million cases worldwide.
The past two years have been brutal with our nurses and medical volunteers battling covid-19 and the Delta variant in hospitals nationwide- a new variant named Omnicron from South Africa is spreading even faster than the Delta variant and is setting records all over the world. Omnicron also made it into my own home with my husband contracting it over Christmas. Demand is high once again for N95 masks and home-covid testing kits and volunteers have recently sent out another 100,000 N95 masks to nursing homes and hospitals in need- bringing the total of N95 masks donated to 1.8 minion masks nationwide.
