Well, the flood gates will reopen in AZ soon, so the general public of Lake Havasu is in full force of not practicing any of the recommended guidelines. Its weird... a few weeks back, masks were quite common
, often running towards 50%. Went to the store last night and it was 1 of 7-8 may be... I guess the Trumpet's and anti-vaxer's message is settling in. 36 cases here now (doubled in 10 days or so) 4 deaths. No public testing. This past weekend the lake was packed, boat ramps filled to capacity. What virus????
Still lucky to be here,tho freedom could extract a price shortly.
Odd note, The Exaggerator in Chief is in Phoenix today... no reason stated. Chumming with McSally at a refitted mask factory. Wonder if he'll sneak a round in?
I don't understand it myself...at the end of March, most folks were in a fit over this thing, and there were, what, maybe a 1/3 the total cases we have now, yet once the slightest downturn occurs, and everyone has cabin fever, and are back out, doing stuff, like there's not a concern in the world.
...you know that 2nd wave that has been discussed? at this rate, it's gonna hit within the next week or two, because too many folks are acting like it's over...I'm sorry...has there been a vaccine or antibody released to the general public in the last few days that I am not aware of???
...the Indiana Governor has released a staged/phased plan back to normalcy...like in the next 4-6 weeks, this will be a thing of the past...again, I ask...is there a cure that I am not aware of?? How do I get it!?!?
Yeah, in Austin, it was near 100% masks as little as a week ago and now it has pulled back. I haven't been to grocery store but at the convenience store a lot of people without them. Some grocery stores and drug stores, probably most, require them though, so that's good.
Austin's a very liberal city, especially for Texas though, so there won't be as much outrage as you see in other places. Cases are still going up though, despite people mostly staying home the last month and a half....however that's likely in large case due to there being a lot more tests....so more confirmed cases and maybe not more overall cases that exist.
It kind of on the surface looks like the stay at home stuff didn't help a lot, as numbers haven't really decreased outside of NY, but I imagine had we gone on as business as usual, things would look REALLY ugly now.
I did kind of think it would start to die down when it got hotter, but I guess it hasn't been that hot in many places for long....but I fear the next flu season without still having a vaccine, especially if people are all happy going back to normal.
