  1. COVID-19 cases are increasing, 1110 and H&H are open up the bars because they say the number has been declining for weeks.
    Opening was suppose to be based on the positivity rate which is increasing, not decreasing.
    This is confusing and makes no sense!

    Well, at least everyone griping about wanting everything back to normal will be happy as the spread continues.

    1. I couldn’t possibly agree more. I live in California now, and the contradictions here are astounding too. Not as bad as Indiana, but still random reopenings based on metrics being changed to stimulate the economy when everything was supposed to be about “public health”. It would be easier to just fully shut down like we did initially, and make non mask wearing/anti social distancing punishable by severe fines.

  2. There is more to consider than just the deaths Bernard. Have you given any thought to the Healthcare workers who are at risk caring for these 1110 cases, or do you think they all can just quarantine at home? This isn’t just about the deaths. Contracting this virus is spreading the risk to others also, the expense of care, and not all who have recovered have done so unscathed. And of course you know also even if you get the virus and recover you can it again. The antibodies only last a couple months.
    So we’re back to normal, let’s spread it around and get it over with? Some will die, but only a tiny percent, small price for all of us to get back to normal.
    Yes, you bet I stay home as much as possible.
