I’d be excited about Phase II starting tomorrow, because it would mean we’d really effectively dealt with Covid19, with metric fucktons of testing, tracking and quarantining.
But, on a federal level, we appear to have forgotten there is a pandemic at all – as we hit two million cases. On a state level, we’re still not where we should be on testing, and that testing is largely self-selecting to boot.
Yes, our county cases are dropping – but the week through yesterday, we had 1150 new cases, and 1150 cases is not exactly nothing, especially when the highest weekly count has been 1906 cases. We’re only 60% off the high.
It’s just too damn soon.
