Who would want to go to those states NY, NJ and Conn…after they killed so many of their citizens.

Texas, Arizona, and Florida are in the process of mass killing their citizens.

But its just the flu and Pence promised us that by June COVID-19 would be behind us?

I wonder if the reason these East coast and mid-atlantic states are doing so well now is because they have at least partial herd immunity.

And places that weren’t hit super hard before are bad now.

At this point, we all just may have to go through it, I guess (or at least 60% of us) :man_shrugging:

And trump is accelerating that process.

There is no evidence of herd immunity. If they had NOT shut down AND their numbers dropped, you would have a point.

By allowing them to make choices?

A business or social venue is open doesn’t mean one MUST go.

They’ve been given the option, not a mandate.

Fla and Texas combine has about half of cases as NY with 6 times less death.

NY and NJ are death states with population that’s more then 2 and half times greater.

Florida and Texas are still on the uphill side of the trajectory.

Our approach is pretty dumb considering we are supposed to be the most advanced country on the planet. Unfortunately, our lack of leadership has exposed the United States in being one or two crisis away from losing our status as the shining city/nation on the hill.

How so? Trump said the warm weather will kill the virus by April.

Florida- 3,280 deaths and counting
Texas- 2,236 deaths and counting

No big deal though, they’re all old baby boomers who were going to drop dead sooner than later.

Whose killing who? Here are statistics for Texas. The vast majority of sufferers have recovered:

Here is Arizona COVID-19 Statistics: 753,379 Cases / 13,098 Deaths / 6,643,932 Tests / Avg cases/day 5,432 declined 31.29% from 14 days ago Avg deaths/day 133 declined 17.39% from 14 days ago (Updated Jan 31, 2021 @ 4:29am)

Here is Florida Florida COVID-19 Statistics: 1,713,589 Cases / 26,360 Deaths / 19,027,767 Tests / Avg cases/day 10,139 declined 25.68% from 14 days ago Avg deaths/day 178 grew 3.5% from 14 days ago (Updated Jan 30, 2021 @ 8:08pm)

Testing positive for a virus, as notables who are HIV positive have proved, is not a death sentence without appeal.

Hospital rates are spiking. Just yesterday the Houston children’s hospital started admitting adults to free up beds elsewhere

I wish they’d stop testing, like what Trump wants. Then these hoaxers with their fake illness could just stay at home.

“cases” refers to people with symptoms. And even if you don’t die, you can be ill for a long time.

I know. These people were past their prime anyway.

Between March and April, everywhere in the states had some sort of a stay-at-home order (with exception of South Dakota maybe, who still had a partial shutdown). Difference is those particular places got hit especially hard.

And so, places that got hit hard are doing better now and places that didn’t , are doing worse. I doubt they have true herd immunity (60%+) - it’s probably considerably lower - but we have to consider that in some ways, it may be a factor.
