Texas is a hotbed of activity right now, with nearly 10,000 hospitalized around the state, many ICUs at full capacity, moving people to other facilities if needed. 98 died yesterday. I'm not going out, groceries were delivered today. A couple of friends have stopped by and we speak out in the driveway in the open air.
The governor has finally decided he needs to act and masks are required in public, fines are hefty. It's too late to help people now, though, it is widely spread through the community and testing shows only a fraction of those affected.
I maintain web contents for a regional site, and post topical COVID-19 charts every so often. There are local GOP bullies who always come in to dismiss the sound science of these, and now I'm deleting or blocking them. I've had it with allowing opposing views even when they're unsupported by facts of logic. Hitchens's Razor at work.
