  • Double masking April 4, 2021 (7:45 am)

    As we face potentially another surge, don’t forget, double masking might be good extra protection for some.  A 2-layer cotton mask with a bandana pulled up over it works for me for short periods, while running errands.

    Mask fitting advice from the CDC:

    Statewide (and Nationwide)deaths continue to plummet.  We are getting closer!

      Deaths have been down but unfortunately right now the outbreak is growing, hospitalizations are up, and if you notice on the chart that you posted the incomplete data portion is showing an uptick in deaths, sorry. I still think it will be over soon though, we are getting closer, but we’re not at the point to start celebrating/letting the guard down quite yet.

      @Smitty, have you missed the news that cases and hospitalizations have been rising in recent weeks?

        Smitty has been posting about how much “better” things are getting practically since the beginning of the pandemic.  They’ve been told that cases and hospitalizations are still bad many times, but are generally disinterested in this information.

          They are getting better.  We can draw two conclusions from this graph, and neither are at odds with each.  Even a cursory glance shows a dramatic – and yes, it is dramatic – decline in deaths over the last 3 months with a recent slight uptick.  The long decline is settled fact, whether the uptick is a beginning of a significant surge is not.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
