Oh, what the hell...

26 Mississippi legislators test positive for COVID-19 after outbreak tied to state Capitol
[thehill.com]

A coronavirus outbreak linked to the Mississippi state Capitol has infected more than 20 state lawmakers, according to a top health officer.

State Health Officer Thomas Dobbs told The Mississippi Clarion-Ledger that 36 people who work at the Capitol have tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, including 26 lawmakers. The figure means that about 1 in 6 legislators have contracted the virus.

The leaders of both chambers — Speaker Philip Gunn (R) and Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann (R) — are among those who have tested positive. Dobbs said that the Mississippi Health Department is actively monitoring the outbreak, noting that 290 people have been tested at the Capitol so far this week.

The uptick in infections follows a month in which many legislators worked in the Capitol without following health guidelines recommending the use of face masks.

The South shall surrender again !

Seriously I hope everyone who sickens from this terrible disease would recover unharmed. But I cannot help but express a certain glee when Disease Deniers contract the disease.

With NYC having been such a major hub of the infection, how long until the South refers to COVID-19 as the Disease of Northern Aggression?

'The Mississippi Department of Health is recommending you get tested for Sars-CoV-2 if you had exposure to a state legislator in the last week...'

Mississippi hospitals are already overrun. The state had only a single high level unit (organ transplants etc) and it's already full.

Where is the military's hospital ship? Sounds like it could be used and needs to be deployed to the gulf of Mexico seeing the hospitals are being overwhelmed by Covid-19 cases.
