Last year she explained that she installed the display so far in advance to offer some cheer to her neighbours after a "horrible and surreal" year. This time round, speaking to Wales Online she said: "Things haven't really improved much this year either, have they? "If anything it's been just as bad, what with coronavirus case figures back on the rise - what is more, I also lost my cousin Julie to cancer back in the spring and she was always such a...
    A California hospital will possibly be fined $43,000 from county health officials for potentially inciting a COVID-19 superspreader event that's been traced back to an inflatable Christmas tree costume. Health officials at the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health said they counted 77 staff and 15 patient cases and one staff member death connected to the event at San Jose Medical Center. Health officials say they were unaware of the first 43 cases until news reports came out this week. San Jose was issued a $1,000 fine last week for each delayed report of a positive case of coronavirus, but cases since early January connected to the holiday event spiraled from the initial 43 to over 90. "Kaiser Permanente failed to report any of these cases in the County’s Worksite Case and Contact Reporting Portal as it is required to do by the Public Health Order issued on Oct. 5," the county health department said in a statement. Healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente denied any delays in reporting the cases. "The suggestion that we are anything other than forthcoming with...

Honchos at the Kaiser Permanente medical center in San Jose allegedly didn’t report at least 43 cases of infected workers to Santa Clara County’s health department within the required 4-hour time frame, according to county officials. At least 78 employees at the hospital have now tested positive for COVID-19, according to ABC 7. The hospital has been investigating whether the outbreak was spread when a staffer sported an “air-powered” costume to spread cheer on Christmas Day. The penalty, dated Jan. 5, breaks down to $1,000 for each of the first 43 cases that officials say went unreported in the hospital’s emergency department. But the...
    The COVID-19 outbreak at a San Jose hospital linked to an inflatable Christmas tree costume has now spread to at least 60 people.  Kaiser Permanente has said it is investigating if the outfit worn by an emergency department employee on Christmas Day might have caused the spread that has killed one.  'This was not a Kaiser Permanente sponsored or approved activity,' the spokesperson said in a statement. 'Any exposure, if it occurred, would have been completely innocent, and quite accidental, as the individual had no Covid symptoms and only sought to lift the spirits of those around them during what is a very stressful time.'  Kaiser had reported 44 cases potentially linked to the costume but revised the figure late Tuesday. All 60 workers now testing positive were in the ER on Christmas Day, The Mercury News reports.   The hospital is now probing whether the air-powered costume, which had big eyes, a smile, and a bright red nose may have fanned the spread of virus-laden droplets. DailyMail.com has contacted the hospital to find out what has happened to the costume since it...

The woman who died has not been named but was described as 'absolutely wonderful' by her colleagues.

    An inflatable costume worn by a staff member on Christmas to bring cheer to fellow emergency room staffers at Kaiser Permanente San Jose Medical Center is suspected to have contributed to a coronavirus outbreak that infected 43 and killed one. Inflatable costumes, like the one shown in the 2007 photo above (and not related to the outbreak), “are usually powered by a battery-operated fan that sucks air into the suit, helping it keep its shape,” the New York Times noted. The Times noted that the particular type of costume had not been identified, but was “holiday themed.” Local media reported that it may have been an inflatable Christmas tree costume.

    A 40-foot tall inflatable leg lamp has been erected in the small Oklahoma city of Chickasha as a tribute to the man who built the very first one, which is thought to be behind the inspiration behind amusing iconic prop used in the classic seasonal film A Christmas Story. The film, set in the 1940s and narrated by an adult Ralphie Parker, sees him reminiscing on a Christmas where he was nine years old.  It also features a lamp in the shape of a leg delivered to a family in a large box reading 'fragile', to which the father famously says 'fra-gee-leh, must be Italian!'
