The US: COVID-19 spiraling out of control

Recommended Posts

Texas' governor is urging people to stay home amid a surge in coronavirus cases, with some health officials calling for a stricter stay-at-home order.

"Because the spread is so rampant right now, there's never a reason for you to have to leave your home," Gov. Greg Abbott told CNN affiliate KBTX. "Unless you do need to go out, the safest place for you is at your home."

 

New cases and hospitalizations are rising at their fastest rate yet -- something Abbott called "unacceptable" -- with Texas reporting more than 5,000 cases in a single day, breaking its previous record, health authorities said.

The surge comes as alarming coronavirus trends have emerged across several US states. 

Tuesday saw 34,720 new cases in the US -- the third-highest number of new cases reported in one day since the beginning of the pandemic, based on the archive of numbers kept by Johns Hopkins University. The two days with more cases were both in April.

 

California obliterated its previous single-day high with more than 7,149 cases reported Wednesday, according to data from the state Department of Public Health.

 

At least 26 states are seeing a rise in cases compared to the previous week, data from Johns Hopkins University show. Those states are Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming

 

"What I'd be focusing right now on is sounding the alarm to our hospital systems to get ready," Humble said. "Because no matter what you do at this point, given where we are at the increase in cases, the exponential growth, taking into consideration the incubation period for this virus, we're going to go into surge capacity mode by the Fourth of July." - Hotez

I personally think the appropriate decision here is to open movie theaters now tbh. Bars, clubs, restaurants are already open so why not?

Ummm...news on these cases are everywhere, not just CNN. It's not exaggerated news that COVID-19 is spreading rapidly, it's in fact, actually happening whether one chooses to believe it or not.

Well, let’s see. Is it true or not that Texas broke their single day cases record?

 

Is it true or not that 35,000 new cases were confirmed on Tuesday? The 3rd highest single day?

 

Is it true or not that California just broke their single day record?

 

Is it true or not that 26 states are seeing an increase compared to last week?

you do realize you’re trying to politicize a virus...

the virus doesn’t care about your views it’s still killing and injuring people no matter how much you cry about it because you’re too scared to face reality :giraffe:

Reporting facts and trying to save lives being 'anti-conservative'. :doc:

most of this is south, because they for some reason or another don't believe in wearing masks, social distancing, or any other precautions

Sadly there’s nothing anyone can do just stay at home a much as possible and have extreme levels of hygiene.

 

I don’t think going into an extreme lockdown will solve anything tho. 
 

It is what it is.
