Es necesario aumentar la vacunación contra la COVID-19 para mantener al virus bajo control

Comunicado de prensaEnglish

Para publicación inmediata: 22 de junio de 2021   (21-156 – Español)

Contacto con la prensa:  Kristen Maki, Comunicaciones, 360-545-2944

Asuntos del público: línea directa estatal de asistencia para la COVID-19, 1-800-525-0127

Es necesario aumentar la vacunación contra la COVID-19 para mantener al virus bajo control

OLYMPIA. El último informe de situación de modelado y de vigilancia de la COVID-19 (solo en inglés) del Departamento de Salud del Estado de Washington (DOH, por su sigla en inglés) sigue mostrando signos prometedores en la disminución de la actividad de la enfermedad. El informe también subraya la necesidad de vacunación adicional y de esfuerzos preventivos continuos (como el uso de mascarillas si no se está vacunado) a medida que el estado avanza hacia la reapertura y más.  

Las conclusiones del informe son las siguientes:

  • Desde el 3 de junio, los recuentos de casos y las hospitalizaciones en todo el estado siguieron disminuyendo, pero estaban empezando a estabilizarse ligeramente. En la mayoría de los condados, el recuento de casos también se mantuvo estable o disminuyó en ese momento, y 36 de los 39 condados tuvieron menos de 200 nuevos casos por cada 100,000 personas durante las últimas dos semanas.
  • A partir del 3 de junio, las tasas de casos siguieron disminuyendo en todos los grupos de edad, excepto en los mayores de 70 años, entre los que las tasas se mantuvieron estables. En el caso de las personas de 20 a 69 años, las tasas se acercan a los niveles bajos vistos por última vez en marzo, antes de que comenzara la cuarta ola. Las tasas de hospitalización también están disminuyendo en las personas de 20 a 79 años y se mantienen estables tras los aumentos anteriores en las personas de 80 años o más.
  • A finales de mayo, los niveles de transmisión en todo el estado seguían siendo relativamente altos. La mejor estimación del número reproductivo (que nos dice cuántas personas nuevas infectará cada caso de COVID-19) el 28 de mayo fue de 1.03. Un número reproductivo de uno significa que el virus sigue propagándose al mismo ritmo. Para que las tasas de casos sigan disminuyendo, el número reproductivo debe mantenerse muy por debajo de uno durante un tiempo considerable.
  • Aunque la vacunación ha contribuido a reducir la transmisión, los aumentos de la inmunidad estimada de la población han empezado a estabilizarse a medida que se reducen las tasas de vacunación. El 3 de junio, la mejor estimación basada en un modelo de la inmunidad global de la población era del 47 %. La inmunidad estimada por la vacunación en ese momento era de alrededor del 33.3 %.
  • La vacunación está protegiendo claramente a las personas de la COVID-19 grave, como demuestran las tendencias de hospitalización muy diferentes que estamos observando en las poblaciones no vacunadas. A principios de junio, las tasas de hospitalización estimadas entre las personas no vacunadas de 45 a 64 años seguían aumentando a pesar de que las tasas de la población general de esa edad habían disminuido. En el caso de las personas de 65 años o más, las tasas de hospitalización se estabilizaron en un nivel alto para las personas no vacunadas y se mantuvieron estables pero mucho más bajas en el conjunto de la población de esa edad. La tasa de hospitalización estimada para las personas no vacunadas es 21 veces superior a la de las personas vacunadas en edades comprendidas entre los 45 y los 64 años, y 15 veces superior en las personas no vacunadas en comparación con las vacunadas en edades superiores a los 65 años. 
  • Las variantes preocupantes (solo en inglés) siguen planteando riesgos adicionales de brotes e impactos para el sistema sanitario, especialmente en lugares donde las tasas de vacunación son más bajas. Aunque los datos de secuenciación genética (solo en inglés) de los que disponemos para algunos casos y las estimaciones de modelos sobre la probable presencia de variantes en todo el estado proporcionan porcentajes exactos diferentes, ambos indican que la variante alfa (B.1.1.7) es, por lejos, la cepa dominante y responsable de alrededor de la mitad de los casos. Ambas fuentes de datos sugieren que las siguientes cepas más comunes son la variante gamma (P.1), probablemente alrededor del 20 % de los casos, seguida de la variante delta (B.1.617.2). Las variantes gamma y delta parecen estar en niveles preocupantes y en aumento. La mejor manera de controlar la propagación de las variantes es aumentar la vacunación.

“Las pruebas son claras: la vacunación lo protege a usted y a las personas que lo rodean, incluidos los niños menores de 12 años que aún no pueden vacunarse”, expresó el oficial de Salud del Estado en funciones Scott Lindquist, MD, MPH. “Los niveles de inmunidad en su comunidad y círculos sociales determinan la probabilidad de estar expuesto al virus, y esperamos seguir viendo brotes en las comunidades con menores tasas de vacunación. A medida que nos acercamos a la reapertura, puede ayudar a mantener la seguridad de su comunidad vacunándose y hablando con sus conocidos para que se vacunen”.

El DOH trabaja conjuntamente con el Instituto de Modelización de Enfermedades, el Centro de Investigación del Cáncer Fred Hutchinson, la Universidad de Washington y el programa de Inteligencia Artificial para la Salud de Microsoft para desarrollar estos informes cada dos semanas.

Brightfield Group, Mile High Labs Launch Innovation Lab Fueling Next Generation of CBD products

The Innovation Lab will establish industry benchmarks for high-quality products.

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, June 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brightfield Group has entered into a partnership with Mile High Labs (MHL) to develop the Mile High Innovation Lab – a novel product development platform purpose-built to give CBD and CPG brands the confidence to develop, launch and scale new products in this booming segment of the health and wellness industry.

The pace of innovation in CBD is accelerating, giving way to the next generation of products that include additional functional ingredients, minor cannabinoids and need-state focused positionings. Now, the Mile High Innovation Lab will take this innovation to the next level by combining world-class ingredients, formulations, and production capabilities with real consumer use testing powered by Brightfield Group. Select partners will be on the forefront of innovative CBD solutions rooted in high-quality data and insights.

Brightfield’s insights will establish the industry’s first benchmarks on successful launches. This will signal a new standard for CBD products driven by concept testing, innovation tracking and consumer insights from Brightfield.

“As CBD heads into its next chapter, with retail rebounding and regulatory guidance on the horizon, it will be critical for the industry to apply more discipline and rigor to succeed. The Brightfield and Mile High Partnership will put consumers at the heart of the innovation process, driving the next generation of more sophisticated products that will really meet consumer needs,” said Bethany Gomez, Brightfield Group’s Managing Director. 

The Innovation Lab concept is born from the need in the market for a stage-gated, standardized product development process that enables the discovery of novel consumer products. It applies lessons learned from established global CPG companies to the cannabinoid market, creating a framework for more precision early in the product development process. Mile High's innovation journey carries each Partner's product ideas all the way from concept to prototype, to consumer testing and feedback, to commercialization with every Partner retaining the intellectual property of their discoveries.

Once Partner concepts are prototyped, samples will be distributed to consumers enrolled in each Partner's virtual consumer panel. After consumers try each sample, Brightfield Group will follow up with In-Home User Testing surveys (IHUTs) which are designed to gauge consumer reactions to the product concept, measure satisfaction levels based on a variety of attributes and identify willingness to purchase. The actionable product insights produced from Brightfield Group's IHUTs help Partners minimize the risk of failure and maximize the commercial opportunity of each new product concept.

"Think of the Mile High Innovation Lab as a virtualized R&D and consumer panel platform," said Jon Hilley, CEO, Mile High Labs. "It's a way for our customers to leverage the unique strengths of the world's leading cannabinoid manufacturer in Mile High, the world's leading ingredient company in Royal DSM and the industry's leading consumer insights platform in Brightfield Group. You come with the consumer product ideas, we prototype them, consumers test and you get actionable insights that give you the confidence to commercialize your product."

The Mile High Innovation Lab is limited to 10 partners. To apply to join, click here.

Texas Education Trailblazer Creates Stir with Family Centered ‘Stemonade’ Promoting 21st Century STEAM Projects

STEAM for girls and minority communities

STEAM is for everyone

A recent Pew Study reports Black students make up only 7 percent of STEAM bachelor’s degrees, but one trailblazing education advocate is changing the narrative.

SAN ANTONIO, TX, UNITED STATES, June 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Texas Education Trailblazer Creates Stir with Family Centered ‘Stemonade’ Promoting 21st Century STEAM Projects

A recent Pew Study reports Black students make up only 7 percent of STEAM bachelor’s degrees, but one trailblazing education advocate is changing the narrative. Meet Naomi Woods, founder of Stemondae, a multi-level platform drawing underserved populations into the five key areas — science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Woods, a doctoral candidate at Texas A&M University, knows it takes more than dreams and wishes to bring our children up to snuff. The educational forerunner says, “it takes creative thinking and a clear strategy to forge a path for the next generation of STEM graduates.”

The purpose of Stemonade is to provide college and career readiness for the 21st century, and the best way to do this is to start at home. Stemonade offers a family-focused STEAM kit to encourage households “to learn and explore together.” The influence of parents on their children’s educational future is well documented, but every family unit can use a little direction and that is where Stemonade comes in. Naomi created a fully integrated video component, coupled with industry-related books, experiments, tools, resources, and even dramatic play elements to make STEAM learning a part of everyday living. Each Stemonade kit complies with TEKS and Common Core standards. With support from Stemonade, parents do not need to downplay STEAM subjects, instead the entire family unit can learn together.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, STEAM jobs are the wave of the future and Naomi is answering the call. The Bureau projects these fields will double in demand, but the laborers are few. Through Stemondae, Naomi positions students of color and young women to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with their international counterparts. As a former regional administrator for College and Career readiness programs who helped some 500,000 students navigate the path to higher education, Naomi knows what students need to be successful in the next phase of their journey.

The interactive program enhances a child’s education through hands-on experiments, literacy components, SEL, and career exploration activities. Though women make up half of the workforce, only 27 percent consider a career in STEAM fields. Naomi knows it is vital to give a girl a chance to explore STEAM fields early on and she offers career exploration activities to encourage young girls to see themselves as scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. A recent study by Junior Achievement reports a decline in STEAM interest among teens, age 13-17 years old. Naomi Woods, who holds her Master’s in Education from Sam Houston State University says, “we can pique their interest at an early age through programs like Stemonade.”

Naomi is on a mission to bring STEAM fields to the Black and brown communities and other underrepresented groups. With nearly 20 years in the field of education, Naomi knows what students need to compete on the world stage. According to a report cited at the National Black Caucus, some 73% of Black adults identify as gamers. These African American consumers partake in video gaming events which rely heavily on mathematics, engineering, and computer programming — but the same demographic is underrepresented on the development side. Gaming is a trillion-dollar business, and with training and clear career choices, underserved people can carve out a piece of the cyber pie for their communities. Woods has the revolutionary answer to this systemic imbalance. Using Stemonade’s trailblazing program, communities of color can move from being consumer based to being a workforce of innovative content creators.
