Pre-existing conditions and COVID-19 severityNew data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirm that both pre-existing health conditions and age are independently associated with COVID-19 severity. A few notable highlights from the report:

  • Among those ages 19 to 64 with pre-existing conditions,18 to 20 percent were hospitalized. Among those without conditions, approximately 6 percent were hospitalized.
  • Only 17 to 18 percent of people over age 65 without pre-existing conditions were hospitalized. Of people over age 65 with a pre-existing condition, 42 to 44 percent were hospitalized.
  • This suggests that people under age 65 with a pre-existing condition had about the same risk of being hospitalized as people over 65 without a pre-existing condition. It also suggests that having a pre-existing condition at any age doubles or triples your risk of being hospitalized.

What qualifies as a pre-existing condition or risk factor?

  • Chronic lung disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Chronic renal disease
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Being immunocompromised
  • Neurological disorder
  • Neurodevelopmental or intellectual disability
  • Pregnancy

Unifi Protect Problems

I have a new Cloud Key Gen 2 + I have the SDN part working. But can’t get protect working.

I try on the web browser and it stalls out. See the image below.

Then after putting in the information it freezes as the below image.

And on the iOS app it also fails. Initially, the iOS app would time out about 3/4 of the way around the “waiting” circle. Now it goes ahead but errors. See this YouTube video of the screen capture from my phone.

Word to Excel Breaks

  1. In Word replace all the paragraph marks with a unique character.
  2. In Excel replace the unique character with the Excel line break character.
  3. In the Replace field, enter the following Alt code: Alt+0010. This code enters in a single line break. You will not see this character but the cursor may change.

Note, to enter an Alt code, hold down the Alt key as you type the digits on the numeric keypad. It may help to have Num Lock on.


Excel Reverse Pivot Table

Excel VBA to reverse a Pivot Table. You can always trust finding Excel stuff if you use J-Walk as part of the search.
Sub ReversePivotTable()
' Before running this, make sure you have a summary table with column headers.
' The output table will have three columns.
	Dim SummaryTable As Range, OutputRange As Range
	Dim OutRow As Long
	Dim r As Long, c As Long
	On Error Resume Next
	Set SummaryTable = ActiveCell.CurrentRegion
	If SummaryTable.Count = 1 Or SummaryTable.Rows.Count < 3 Then
		MsgBox "Select a cell within the summary table.", vbCritical
		Exit Sub
	End If
	Set OutputRange = Application.InputBox(prompt:="Select a cell for the 3-column output", Type:=8)
' Convert the range
	OutRow = 2
	Application.ScreenUpdating = False
	OutputRange.Range("A1:C3") = Array("Column1", "Column2", "Column3")
	For r = 2 To SummaryTable.Rows.Count
		For c = 2 To SummaryTable.Columns.Count
			OutputRange.Cells(OutRow, 1) = SummaryTable.Cells(r, 1)
			OutputRange.Cells(OutRow, 2) = SummaryTable.Cells(1, c)
			OutputRange.Cells(OutRow, 3) = SummaryTable.Cells(r, c)
			OutputRange.Cells(OutRow, 3).NumberFormat = SummaryTable.Cells(r, c).NumberFormat
			OutRow = OutRow + 1
			Next c
			Next r
		End Sub
