In northern California’s Stanford Health Care system, hospital admissions have jumped by 12% in recent weeks, including a stunning 43% increase in cerebrovascular conditions such as strokes. In Oregon, health officials reported nearly one out of 10 people visiting the emergency room had asthma-like conditions due to the smoke. And in San Francisco, doctors had to cancel their clinics for recovering Covid-19 patients, because the air was so unhealthy that just getting to their appointments could make patients more sick. ...

“We’re on the 30th consecutive day of our ‘Spare the Air’ alerts,” said Kristina Chu of the Bay Area air quality management district on Wednesday. “That’s an all-time record,” she explained; the previous longest was 14 days. ...

The most alarming finding was the 43% increase in strokes and other cerebrovascular hospitalizations, which could be related to inflammation brought on by the pollution, the researchers said. ...

In Oregon, residents were facing air pollution so severe that the air quality index readings were “literally off the charts”, according to Gabriela Goldfarb, a spokesperson for the Oregon health authority, which has been monitoring an increase in people seeking emergency treatment for asthma symptoms. While any air quality index over 300 is considered “hazardous”, numerous communities bordering the wildfires near Salem and the Portland suburbs have experienced readings of over 500, she said. ...

“If there are people who need to leave the house and get some fresh air, we recommend they do it now,” said Chu, of the Bay Area air quality district. “It’s a new normal that we’re getting used to.”


It is literally life-threatening to live in states run by Democrats.

I'm starting to think Democrats are simply cursed for their evil deeds, like legalizing the sodomizing of 14 year old boys by 24 year old men.

Fucking pussies can't take a little thick toxic brew of asbestos, gasoline residue, kerosene residue, fire retardant chemicals, carbonized tree sap, insecticides, scorched fungi and mosses, plastics, molds, and miscellaneous hydrocarbons.

If they can't survive that, they don't deserve to live.

I think those (previously) spotted are now called the carbon tufted naked owl.

As someone with sever allergies, I have noticed increased trouble with my breathing and I'm getting more allergy attacks then ever before.

Will liberals continue to vote for this piece of garbage?

We both know the answer to that. And if not, they can pull an Orange County vote mining spree.

Depends if they can print and count the Dem ballots faster than people can vote.

That must be pretty bad smoke. The California government has created such a scare over the covid that people are skipping all but the most dire medical visits.

I has been extremely bad, and very depressing.

No doubt we will see a large spike in cancer rates in the coming years.

California will also be sending out tax bills for all of the untaxed marijuana smoke from burned out marijuana farms that state residents inhaled for free.
