If you were at Fifth Avenue in Royal Oak on June 19th, get tested.  Three people who were there that night have tested positive.

The governor of Nebraska is playing a very dangerous and dirty political game with Covid-19 federal funds.

His citizens should be outraged.

The governor of Nebraska has threatened to withhold millions of dollars in coronavirus relief funds from counties that require people to wear masks. The order contradicts advice from the state's health officials and even the governor himself, who has publicly implored the public to wear masks when they go to stores.

"If they don't want to follow the guidelines, they won't be eligible for the CARES Act money," Governor Pete Ricketts, a Republican, said at a press conference about the pandemic response. "But that's certainly their prerogative to do that."

7-2: 1147

7-9: 1105

7-16: 859

7-23: 871

Down 30% from 4 weeks ago.

Speaking with the experience of someone who carpetbagged to Nebraska for a time, I'd guess most of his citizens agree with him.

I sure hope the point is that those numbers of death aren't a big deal b/c ~7700 die daily normally

Without providing any context of that you are getting at, we can only assume you posted this to say people die every day anyway as to downplay what’s happening now. Adding 700-1,200 deaths on top of other daily deaths is horrific in any context.

You would assume wrong.

Don't worry, you assumed correctly. Just go back to the beginning of this thread and you will see he was claiming this was no big deal and was all hysterical media overreaction.

So, a sudden shift just in the last week, maybe two:

For a couple of months the compliance of mask wearing in Chicago grocery stores had been pert near 100%. Maybe a straggling jackass customer here and there, but otherwise, pretty universal.

Went to a couple of stores today, Mariano's. First one, I counted eight employees who wore their mask either under their nose or on only their chin, and one other employee working the aisles wearing no mask at all. Two of the shirkers, with their mask on the chin, were leaning over a counter talking maybe two feet from one another. I don't think they were related and live together.

Went to the second Mariano's to get an item the first one was out of, and there were maybe five mask shirkers just within the beeline path I walked in and out of the store.

That's a leading indicator: Illinois is going to get slammed too, and probably soon.

Fauci told us several months ago that we don't decide when to open the economy, the virus sets the dates. Then the CDC set the guidelines for staggered openings...steps. The very next day is when Trump tweeted "Liberate" states with democratic governors. Within a week, demonstrators, unmasked, stormed Lansing. Many states have totally ignored the CDC guidelines, many (most) of them Republican run. So instead of following guidelines of waiting for cases to drop, many of the states opened things up way too much and way too quickly. And here comes a summer holiday with a second surge of the coronavirus upon us, while we're still battling the first wave.

I like what Arizona is doing.  Give this thing to every citizen and that positive test rate drops to zero.

Well the people being admitted to hospitals already in triage mode in Arizona will be waiting for that with 'bated breath, or whatever breath they have left.

Michigan has about 2,961 ICU beds. Based on best available data, we estimate that 53% (1,556) are currently occupied by non-COVID patients. With 1,405 ICU beds remaining, we estimate 192 are needed by COVID cases, or 14% of available beds. This suggests there is likely enough capacity to absorb a wave of new COVID infections.
