July 2nd
Today may be last report until Monday since the County offices will close Friday for the Holiday.

Two hundred and Sixty-eight additional cases added and unfortunately seven more deaths. One of the deaths was a 20 year old.

Still hearing that it's all a hoax to hurt Trump and to get more money in the hospitals.

Re: The Straight Story on Masks
the cloth masks help protect others from you.

In places where masks are mandated, the Covid 19 new infection rate dropped 25%. In places where it isn't, it has drastically increased.

Even the cloth masks work. Particularly if they have a pocket inside, and you can put a filter in.

July 3rd figures came in. Another 278 confirmed cases. We succeeded in having more cases in the first three days of July than we had in March, April & May combined.

Hidalgo County and neighboring Starr county have both issued Shelter In Place advisories. Hospitals in both counties are at full capacity and patients have been air lifted as far away as Dallas and San Antonio.

Unfortunately neither judges have the authority to actually enforce the order or to fine those who ignore it. (AbE: now have the ability to levee a $250.00 fine after a first offence)

Thanks Gov. Abbott.

And the TWITS on Twitter are now saying that the tests are pre-contaminated to shut down the country and harm Trump.

AbE:

So far twelve Texas Counties have said that the will ignore the Governors orders and will not enforce the mandatory mask, social distancing or restriction on crowds over ten individuals.

Broadway Star Nick Cordero Dead at 41
Broadway star Nick Cordero contracted Covid-19 back in March. Placed on a ventilator and developing blood clots that forced the amputation of his right leg, he died July 5 at a Los Angeles hospital. Increasingly receiving central roles in such Broadway hits as Bullets Over Broadway and A Bronx Tale, Cordero's career was headed toward even bigger things. This is another significant loss to the novel coronavirus. Here is a list of other well known people who have died: Celebrities Who Have Died From Coronavirus (Photos)

Re: The Latest Data
Here's today's bar graph of deaths per day from The Washington Post Coronavirus Page. The trend remains mildly downward, but given the recent spike in cases should begin moving upward soon. Mitigating deaths is the increasing experience and knowledge of the medical establishment, and worsening deaths will be that hospital capacity of hotspot regions is being increasingly strained. We're at over 127,000 deaths now:

From the same source, here's today's bar graph of cases. The trend is now strongly upward

This week's grocery store trip was a few days ago. Everyone wore a mask except for two employees. There were several people wearing their mask below the nose, and several others wearing it across the tip of the nose.

At PetSmart maybe 75% were wearing masks. Dog people don't seem to like masks.

Re: Broadway Star Nick Cordero Dead at 41
Its no joke, is it. I was so sad as I perused that list of celebrities. Some of them were so young! Chris Trousdale was only 31!

Just for the record, I want you all to know that Isaiah Saldivar, the young evangelist whom I have showcased in my posts with Pastor ICANT, has many medical people in his extended family and warns his circle of influence that COVID-19 is a scientific fact and not a demon or a myth. Which shows that even charismatic Christians can be logical.

4th. of July numbers in.
We added yet another 547 cases over the 4th and 5th as well as yet another death. So far we have added as many cases during the first five days of July as in the first 22 days of June.

The county has issued a Shelter at Home order and banned gatherings of more than 10 and made wearing masks mandatory yet there were still massive parties over the weekend and lots of folk not wearing masks as well as almost normal traffic on the highways.

The age figures are continuing the skew towards the young with big jumps in the number of under 20 folk. Not encouraging news with schools opening. On June 23rd there were only about 300 cases that were Covid-19 positive in the under 20 age group while over the weekend there were over 750 cases under 20.

Still seeing the need to change the scale every third day.

ffs, that's the test of being 'logical' is it? Noticing that COVID isn't a myth or a bloody demon? Just having to say it tells us everything we need to know

Re: 4th. of July numbers in.
NY had a 4 day upward trend, followed by a 4 day downward trend, so it was a very small hump. We are starting ot get anti-mask activist though.

I had to go pick up groceries today. I use order online with curbside pickup and even though I'm the only one in my car I still wear a mask incase they need to ask any questions. On the way I was stopped at a light and a guy in a King Ranch Ford F350 with every tricked out bordello decoration imaginable that had to cost almost as much as my house pulled up beside me, blew his horn and when I looked his way gave me the finger a suggested that he might want to have intercourse with me.

And just like Natalia who wants to send me private images, he doesn't even know me.

It's the mask, jar. For a lot of us the mystery is way so erotic.

Re: 4th. of July numbers in.
Ahh, nostalgic America. Our ages are showing.

But, this the modern America of a new millennium. Prurient interests take on new forms. Spider-man, Deadpool. Not the same romantic arc as the masked man, at least not for us. But for the young kids ... very much the same kinds of fantasies. Who was that masked man? Where did he find an N95?
