Over 30 hospitals at max ICU, and 20 more with 90% capacity.

Ugh. I cannot watch the train wreck.

NYC... Is not like Florida. They hit the brakes.

The entire state of Florida went down that road and rode it off a cliff.

Did you notice that Miami decided to lock down again, AFTER the fourth, not BEFORE. RollingEyesSmiley5

Texas is hot on Florida’s heels. A little review:

End of April:

"Now it's time to set a new course, a course that responsibly opens up business in Texas," [Governor] Abbott [R] said, flanked by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick [R] and Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen [R].

[/Abbott said his new order "supersedes all local orders" saying those businesses must remain closed. He also said his order overrules any local government that wants to impose a fine or penalty for not wearing a mask - something the latest statewide rules encourage but do not mandate”.

Daily cases of Covid: ~1000

With the number of people hospitalized for the new coronavirus continuing to climb in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott said Friday that there’s “no real need to ratchet back the opening of businesses in the state.”

Daily cases of Covid: ~2000

”Our goal is to keep Texans out of hospitals and to reduce the number of Texans who test positive,” Abbott said. “COVID hasn’t suddenly gone away, but neither has our ability to slow the spread of it.”

...“Closing down Texas again will always be the last option,” he said.

Daily cases of Covid: ~5000

Officials in Texas also reported hospitals are in danger of being overwhelmed. Hospitalizations statewide surged past 8,000 for the first time over the weekend, a more than fourfold increase in the past month. Houston officials said intensive care units there have exceeded capacity.

Putting rigid orthodoxy above people’s lives is never a good idea.

Video of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis [R] bragging about tackling coronavirus resurfaces

Quote

... you got a lot of people in your profession who waxed poetically for weeks and weeks about how Florida was going to be just like New York, wait two weeks and Florida’s going to be next just like Italy, wait two weeks. Well hell, we’re eight weeks away from that and it hasn’t happened,” DeSantis goes on, using a smug voice when recalling the naysayers before triumphantly proclaiming Florida has been spared of the virus’s vicious impact

Oopsie. Rigid orthodoxy (and premature ball-spiking) strikes again.

Soon to be followed (or already being followed by) an "uptick" in infections and deaths of old people that the young infected people aren't careful around.

Arizona is also terrible.

'Over the week of June 30, Arizona reported 55 new coronavirus cases per 100,000 people per day. That’s 34 percent more than the second-worst state, Florida. It’s more than double Texas, another hard-hit state. It’s more than triple the US average.'

Over the weekend, townspeople in Sonoyta on the Arizona border used their own vehicles to block the road leading to Puerto Peñasco, a beach town on the Sea of Cortés popular with US tourists – and they plan to repeat the process this week.
