    We see this differently. You chose the the "cumulative cases" option. Of course that can't go down. There is no negative to reduce it.

    The "cases over time" is actually looking pretty good for Georgia. Certainly on a downward trend over the last two weeks. Likewise reported deaths. Those are down significantly.

    We'll have to wait and see but I'm optimistic.

    Who do you think is flying the planes? Cockpit doors are locked for a reason.

    How did you figure out that we spread this virus through chem trails? Did Geko45 snitch on us?

    Buckets of Kentucky Fried Flies (boy, try typing that real fast) can be arranged but what would I do with his nest mates?

    Eat them for all we care. Slather them with SARS CoV 2 barbecue sauce. Gives them extra “zing.”

    A little update on Dallas County, Tx....new cases are running slightly below last week as are deaths. Number of hospitalised state wide is staying at about the same level. We have not seen an adverse reaction to the partial reopening yet. Keeping fingers crossed, a few more openings are scheduled for the 18th.

    I suspect there may be some seasonality to this virus. Probably not much. It does seem to spread quite well in warm climates.

    From what I've heard, their President thinks it's just the flu?

    Right on guns, wrong on COViD.

    Oops.

    I have always been a "glass half full" type of guy, I believe the warm weather states are gonna fare well this summer.

    You could be correct. Arizona seems to be coming through very well. Shockingly well considering how many of our population are retirees.

    Regarding climate/seasonality, I think the vitamin D aspect may account for much of that considering that 90% of our vitamin D comes from sunshine. That and it seems like this primarily spreads indoors so the more time people spend outdoors the lower the reproduction rate, however minimally less.
