Unbelievably good analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic across the world, using now almost 9 months of data:

Why Increasing Number of Cases of COVID-19 is NOT Bad News: A Florida Doctor Talks Some Sense

From a letter to the editor of the Orlando Medical News:

Several times a day, on every possible news outlet, we are bombarded with updates as to the new number of “cases” of COVID-19 in the U.S. and elsewhere. News analysts then use these numbers to justify criticisms of those who dare to reject the CDC’s recommendations with regards to mask wearing and social distancing.

It is imperative that all Americans – and especially those in the medical profession – understand the actual definition of a “case” of COVID -19 so as to make informed decisions as to how to live our lives.

Older Americans remember all too well the dread they experienced when a family member was diagnosed with a “case” of scarlet fever, diphtheria, whooping cough (pertussis), or polio. During my career in family medicine, including several years as an Army physician, I have cared for patients with chickenpox, shingles, Lyme disease as well as measles, tuberculosis, malaria, and AIDS. The “case definition” established for all of these diseases by the CDC requires the presence of signs and symptoms of that disease.

In other words, each case involved a SICK patient. Laboratory studies may be performed to “confirm” a diagnosis, but are not sufficient in the absence of clinical symptoms.

Having now been privileged to care for sick patients with COVID-19, both in and out of the hospital setting, I am happy to see the number of these sick patients dwindle almost to zero in my community – while the “case numbers” for COVID-19 continue to go up. Why is that?

Painting for Auction at Elsewhere Studios Masquerade Ball

Main Alley (windy day) - painting by Gabriel Roberts

The small painting “Main Alley (windy day)” will be on display in Paonia, Colorado at Wisehart Springs Inn this Saturday during the 2nd annual Elsewhere Studios Masquerade Ball.  Along with a number of other paintings by local Paonia artists, “Main Alley” will be auctioned off to support the North Fork Community-Supported Art Library.

This painting is on Rives BFK printmaking paper and measures 6.5×11 inches.  Here are some pictures of it all framed up in recycled redwood:

Sadly, I won’t be attending the ball this year, but I’m glad that my painting will!

New Website in the Works

Hi friends,

My website got hacked in October of this year by some silly spammers who preyed on my seriously-out-of-date wordpress site and installed all sorts of links to sites hosting malware.

After a few weeks of all visitors encountering a scary “Reported Attack Site” warning, I’ve finally gotten the place cleaned out.

How to do fancy website-fixing things?

How to do fancy website-fixing things?

We’re starting over with a new theme and an up-to-date version of WordPress. I’m working on restoring all the old images to my posts and to the “Art” page, where I’ll then add images of recent work.

Finally, I have a new episode of “Painting Pictures” ready to release as soon as I get the podcast page of the site sorted out.

I’m learning lots about databases and the giant mess that is WordPress.

Thanks very much for your patience, and I hope to be posting fresh juicy content very soon!

Update 11/29: gaberobertsart.com/podcast is back up! New episodes of Painting Pictures coming soon.

Yours truly,
Gabriel
