donaldorc...thats not me talking, thats California, Arizona and Texas talking. And believe me, our Governor Newsome has no reason to suggest this if its not true because of his big support for immigration from Mexico into California. And while positive cases in California are climbing the percentage of positive tests isn't...its still 4.1 per 100 tests, a solid number. And again, thats not me speaking, thats the Governor, per his press conference yesterday.
I have also been following the Arizona cases closely and while they are growing, the state continues to say that its a combination of more testing, dual citizens coming to and from Mexico, the opening of the state and people now going to the hospital for elective surgeries and getting tested and coming out positive while not being sick.
By the way, another excellent day yesterday, death number was 417 on a day [Monday] that normally sees very high numbers because of slow walking the count on weekends. Of even better note, one month ago [May 15] we saw a total of 2700 unfortunate souls pass, a terrible number. One month later, the numbers have dropped by 75%. And the numbers of recovered patients world wide vs active cases has now exceeded 800,000, a + rate that is growing by 100,000 a day. And as I mentioned, not even 3 weeks ago that number was in the negatives.
How anyone can not acknowledge this is all exceedingly good news would be so very strange to me if this was merely about the virus, which I do not believe. The press finds a state/states that fit their narrative and continue to sound like Chicken Little while almost never presenting the good news, of which there is much.
Again, look, I understand that the virus is still with us, care will still have to be taken that things continue to move in a positive direction and that Citizens Bank Park is not close to ready to welcome back 45,000 fans. I get it. But to be unwilling or unable to see all the good news surrounding this virus nation wide seems sad and unnecessary to me. Virologists throughout the world say the virus is weakening, just like all past coronavirus strains have.
I believe its time to put the umbrellas away, the black cloud is dissipating.
