I'm sure that number for CA will go up if things are as bad as say there are. And supposedly it's catastrophic there:Florida has the weather that allows outdoor social events and ventilation. Yet, they are still seeing 10K cases a day and 100 deaths. Their spike was totally predictable after removing all restrictions. Comparing them to California, Florida has almost 2x the mortality per capita (92 to 53). I know where I would rather live.
Positive tests for COVID-19 came back in record numbers, hospitalizations climbed to another new high and fewer ICU beds were available than ever before. More Californians have tested positive in t…
How about NY? They have basically 2x the mortality per capita compared to Florida (183 - 92). And NY has never really opened up much keeping many business restrictions in place since last spring. Their cases are increasing significantly and they have a 25% higher hospitalization rate per capita than Florida.
Yes...that's true; and it's a pleasant surprise. Currently, we're at a "Level Red" status which entails closing all non-essential businesses for indoor service except gyms & fitness centers can remain open at 10% capacity. Places of worship are allowed 25% capacity and a metro-wide 10:00 PM curfew is still in effect. "Level Purple" would be a complete shutdown for everything but essential businesses.I notice that Colorado has peaked in terms of cases and hospitalizations and are trending downward. Are you willing to admit that the restrictions worked and that they were the correct decision?
If the trend continues it would appear these restrictions are working while keeping gyms/fitness centers & places of worship open. However, there are some contradictions when you examine some other states and see conflicting trends. For example, cases & hospitalizations are declining significantly in South Dakota. There's never been any lockdowns, restrictions, mask mandates or anything like that (and of course Noem has been crucified by the MSM):
The South Dakota Department of Health reported the lowest number of new daily COVID-19 infections in more than two months on Monday.
Oklahoma is another state that I have been following. Currently, their cases & hospitalizations are down after spiking several weeks ago. All non-essential businesses are allowed to remain open. Bars & restaurants are can stay open until 11:00 PM with 50% capacity. Gyms, fitness centers, places of worship at 50% capacity. No statewide mask mandate but Oklahoma City and some of the surrounding municipalities do have mask mandates in effect.
So, the soft restrictions in OK are reasonable and cases & hospitalizations are also declining. I think the measures in Colorado are unreasonable but as you pointed out, cases & hospitalizations are, in fact, going down.
