More Covid News

Closing Thought–19Oct20

If it is not about the dance for votes between Biden and Trump then it will be the horrible news around this pandemic…..

You guessed it….Pandemic.

8.2 million cases and 220,000 dead

But with those horrible numbers there is a bit of good news….

COVID-19 case numbers hit new daily highs in 10 states on Friday, but things aren’t looking great in the majority of US states on the coronavirus front. As for where things are moving in the right direction, the list is a short one. CNN reports there are just two states that logged a 10%-plus drop in the average number of cases reported over the last 7 days: Vermont and Missouri. That’s per Johns Hopkins University data, which shows Connecticut and Florida saw a 50%-plus increase over the same period. They’re at the top of a slew of states where things aren’t so hot. Per the New York Times, “Epidemiologists warn that nearly half of the states in the US are seeing surges unlike anything they experienced earlier in the pandemic.” CNN reports that in 27 states, the increase over the last 7 days was between 10% and 50%. Those on that list (states not previously named or listed below saw their case counts hold steady):

  • Alabama
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • Kansas
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • North Dakota
  • Ohio
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Texas
  • Washington
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin
  • Wyoming

Yes that is a bit of good news but please do not fall prey to laziness.  The stats are falling because are doing the right things…not by anything the Orange dictator is doing to help this nation out of this pandemic funk.

Be Well…..Be Safe…..
