Still below 5%. Dropped again Image

Seeing less than a fourth of the case counts we saw in Nov. Image
What's it all mean?

The good news continues.

Everything is down

Let's see this continue!

As always. Be smart. Not dumb. And kind. Not mean.

Hey yall

it's a Friday cornucopia of news today...

right now... @GovofCO giving us an update on the dial system...

this will be important for businesses around the state..

details below

Governor Polis notes a pretty sizeable uptick in daily case counts...

around 1800 today...

that's significant... but also could be result of increased testing.

also have now given more than a half million Coloradans at least one dose of COVID vaccine

(that's good news)
Governor starts off dial talk by noting "breaching hospital capacity" is critical...

(Why I always say HOSPITALIZATIONS are among the most critical metrics)

We have not breached it. So today we get Dial 2.0

"it's a more responsive dial"

Wanna walk you through this story @jennifermeckles and I worked on yesterday.

It involves a really nice guy by the name of Michael.

He's in his 70s. Eligible for the vaccine in Colorado. He actually got an appointment for a shot...

There was just one problem... Image
That appointment was abruptly canceled when a billing person with the medical provider learned he owed $243.85 for a previous and unrelated appointment.

He is a cancer patient. He needs this shot.

Instead, he got this email from a Boulder Medical Center patient account rep Image
Michael was miffed. So was his partner. She contacted us to see if this was right.

In essence, she thought, a medical provider was holding a vaccine in the middle of a pandemic as ransom...

Sure did seem that way. So we headed up to Longmont for an interview. Image

POSITIVITY (red line)

You can see the rate of decline has slowed -- just a bit -- in last 2 weeks... but still goin down Image

I'd like to walk you through the process we've gone through for our investigation #PRONE

To review, we have found at least 107 deaths of people who died shortly after being held facedown and handcuffed.

Here are 100 of their faces.

Like many investigations, this one started with another.

Last year, I started looking into the 2018 death of David Baker.

Baker, a Navy veteran, died shortly after several Aurora police officers pinned him to the ground after a violent confrontation.

2/ Image
According to the coroner's report, Baker died of "restraint asphyxia"

He died, in essence, because he couldn't breathe enough air in and out of his body.
