Texas reported over 2,500 new coronavirus cases Wednesday—the highest reported in a single day by far since the pandemic started—as the number of Texans currently admitted to hospitals for coronavirus climbed to a new record for the third straight day, as the state, which had one of the fastest and most aggressive reopening timelines in the nation.

The 2,504 cases reported by the Texas Department of Health Wednesday is more than 28% higher than any other day since the pandemic began, far surpassing the old record of 1,949 on May 31.

According to the Texas Department of Health, there were 2,153 patients hospitalized with coronavirus on Wednesday, surpassing records set each of the past two days and well ahead of the old record of 1,888 recorded on May 5.

Spent some time there as a musician back in the day and am glad to hear it. No SXSW this year.

Only far right wing fascists should exchange the coronavirus among themselves

Well apparently that's what Trump is hoping for-- he's planning a YUGE convention-- in person, not on Zoom! And he wants it big and crowded!

The Texas stay at home order ended April 30th.  Massive protests in Texas occurred two weeks ago....

Well, if that's the case (that the protests are the cause), and New York has the fewest New Cases in the nation-- why has New York had so few protests?

New York had over 800 new cases yesterday they are one of the states with the most new cases. In comparison Wyoming only has a little over one thousand total cases. Ny has almost as many new cases in one day as Wyoming has had total cases.   https://gothamist.com/news/coronavirus-statistics-tracking-epidemic-new-york

Of course, the rising cases of COVID-19 hasn't anything to do with the thousands that have participated in the "Peaceful" protest.

Now that the protest are dying down let's talk about the evil Republican states that are reopening. COVID-19 didn't matter when thousands were in the streets spreading the virus exercising their freedom of speech....Right, Krishna?

You may be right. Let's analyze the actual data:

1.Cases are spiking in Texas.

2, Cases are spiking in Arizona. 

3. While new York was originally the state with the largest number of news cases every day for days-- New York currently has the lowest rate of new infections in the country.

So if what you say is true (that the spike in cases is due to the protests)...and New York has the lowest rate of new infections.. . . .therefore New York must be having no protests...or least significantly less protests than the two states with the highest rates of new infections (Texas and Arizona).

Which raises an interesting question: why does New York have so few protests compared to Texas and Arizona? I can't figure it out. Can you?

I didn't say the spike in cases was due only to the protest. I will say the protest added significantly to them, are you going to deny that?

There's a regrettable trend on social media sites of people making assumptions-- often just saying the first thing that pops into their head.

Not I!

I see no evidence that they have or have not. (Although we should know fairly soon...).

Butnif they did make a significant increasein new cases, how can you explain that New York now has the lowest (or certainly ne of the lowest) numbers of new cases-- and tiny Arizon has amongst the largest number?

If the protests made such an impact, then one would logically expect New York to have lfew protests-- and AZ to have many more.

If so-- I can't figure out why a tiny (population wise) state like AZ would have so many protests compared to NY...???
Can you figure out why...I can't!
