Coronavirus update: U.S. death toll tops 115,000 amid growing worry about uptick in cases in Florida, Texas, Oklahoma
While early hot spots, including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, are showing clear progress in containing the spread of the illness, other states, including Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah are all seeing increases in infections.

The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus illness COVID-19 climbed above 115,000 on Monday, and the stock market tanked amid growing concerns about the uptick in cases in several states after their first efforts to reopen after lockdowns.

While early hot spots, including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, are showing clear progress in containing the spread of the illness, other states, including Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah are all seeing increases in infections.

In total, 23 states are showing a rise in cases. Texas, Arkansas and Arizona are pushing ahead despite their red flags,

Texas hit highs in the past week for hospitalizations and new COVID-19 cases, prompting Houston’s top county official, Lina Hidalgo, to warn that “we may be approaching the precipice of a disaster.”

Yet the Lone Star state went ahead with allowing restaurants to expand eat-in dining Friday to 75% of capacity, up from 50%, said the AP.

We went through this in an earlier thread by FLYNAVY. Maybe you missed it. It has been determined that in some of these states, including Florida, where I am, that the increase in positives is because of the continued increase in testing.

Also, what is more important than positive cases is hospitalizations and deaths, both of which in Florida continue to decline.

The biggest increases, by far, is in 3 democrat run cities in south Florida...Miami-Dade, Ft Lauderdale and Palm Beach. Most other cities and counties have shown deep decreases in cases.

Also, the positive rate is at 2.9 percent, far below what even New York is showing today, with their decreases in rates. This has been steady for weeks.

There are, amazingly at this point, people who think the reported numbers accurately reflect the actual number of infections in a given locale/country.

Yea I understand that. Unfortunately, they don't understand the concept of the millions that may have the virus and have zero symptoms. There is no way to count them unless they get tested.

The percentage of US population with the virus remains WELL under 1 percent.

The percentage of US population with the virus remains WELL under 1 percent.

And if you believe the scientists, we won't reach herd immunity until 70% have been infected and survive, or we have a viable vaccine.

As an update out of curiosity, here is something on Sweden's efforts...

Of course not:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8432389/Texas-sees-record-high-COVID-19-cases-hospitalizations.html

Despite the record number of hospitalizations, Governor Greg Abbott put the surge in cases down to increased testing. Abbott said the state has nearly 15,000 hospital beds available. 

It comes as health experts, including Dr Anthony Fauci, warned the United States was still in the middle of its first coronavirus wave despite fears the country was headed for a second surge. 

Addressing the comments made by various governors that increases in cases were down to more testing, Dr Fair said: 'The analogy that more tests is going to reveal more cases - that's true.

One of the things I have observed over the past few weeks is the increase in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut plates coming through north Florida headed south. South Florida has the highest, by far, of positive cases in the state.

Could there be a correlation of those people coming to Florida for summer vacation or to visit family and friends in south Florida and the increase in cases here?

And yet, one of the things I have noticed is that these "snow birds" head south to Florida as the cold weather begins-- and when the hot weather in Florida begins they go back up North to escape the summer heat and humidity in Florida!.

Not this time. Florida has a checkpoint set up at I95 South at the Georgia border looking for people coming from those 3 particular states. If anyone has those state plates, they are told they need to either turn around and go home or to place themselves on self quarantine for 2 weeks. Most say they are going to quarantine. Most likely they continue to head to south Florida to visit their friends/family or go to the theme parks which are essentially now open, ignoring the order to quarantine. The VAST majority of positive cases are coming from south Florida.

There have been reports of 200-300 cars each day from those states pass through the checkpoint.

Florida had a lot of protests. So did Texas. 

Funny how that gets ignored.

The other funny thing is that the majority of these protests in Florida are in south Florida cities, most notably Miami, which is a democrat stronghold.

Wonder why they never mention that? s/

The left and their media propaganda arm are very predictable. There are several scenarios that will play out both this Saturday night during the rally, then again over the next couple of weeks.

Scenario 1- 2 Possibilities. 1st possibility...The backdrop will consist of people all wearing face masks. The media will say these people are nothing more than props and the only reason they are wearing face masks is for the cameras, even if wide shots around the arena will show most, if not all, people wearing masks. Liberals and the media do not understand personal responsibility that conservatives practice every day.

2nd possibility....No one, or few, in the backdrop, will be wearing face masks. The media will promptly tell their lemmings that these people are going to kill others around them.

Scenario 2- Liberal groups will track rally goer cell phones, as they were known to do during the protests at Michigan state house. If there is even a smidgen of a spike anywhere in the country that even only one rally goer lives, the media will spin this one person as proof that Trump is trying to kill people.

No matter what the media "reports", the liberal lemmings, many on here, will lap it all up as proof that Trump wants to kill people.

In the meantime, we will continue to see riots, protests and looting throughout blue cities, and the media will not say one word about the possibility of COVID spread.

Maybe you should take the advice Freewill gave you the other day. If you actually engage in debate, you may have 1 or 2 people on here respect you.

Also a bit of friendly advice from me....If you want to respond to me, there is a little button below my post that says "reply". Click on that and you will reply directly to me. Other than that, you are just pissing in the wind with your inane comments.

Use your mouse to scroll over the northeast states, all of which are blue..and California. No other states come close to the numbers that have been reported in those blue states.

That a few seconds of life you'll never get back.

Some won't read links because they don't like to see proof that they are wrong, and if they don't look at it, it simply doesn't exist.
