Abbott has been harshly criticized for his handling of the pandemic, and the results are bearing that out.
I've always believed as one expert well put it on a televised interview recently.
Comparing the U.S. to any one country is not really accurate in this case.
It's more like 50 different countries, all going in distinctly separate directions.
A strong federal leadership from the very beginning may have yielded much better results.
Anyone might read what you wrote and think "Man... this guy must be exaggerating" or something to that effect.
But you're not. That same scenario is likely repeated countless times all over the country.
It's beyond sad that people would lose their humanity over stupid shit like having to wear a mask.
What worries me is that we receive a lot of flights daily from two of the most affected States, Florida and Texas.
We've been pretty well under control down here... but with this flow of people from States where people are so rebellious and don't give a shit.... we're bound to be headed into difficult times.
This shit is happening in many places in this country. Beyond sad is right.
You probably already know the updated stats for your country, but here I'll post 'em:
Total infections: 7,608 (the curve is definitely increasing, for example on June 1 you had 3,873 total cases, and on May 1 you had a total of 1,575 cases)
Total deaths: 153
Today's infections: 71 (lower than usual over the past 10 days, so a good sign there)
Today's deaths: 0 (cant get better than that)
But yeah, if FL and TX are your arrivals, fucking hell, watch yourself.
Texas yesterday got 9,873 new cases, mindboggling, and 7,702 new cases today, it is unthinkable but its happening and the curve is like straight up, almost vertical.

Masks are to block BACTERIA not VIRUSES soooo I mean wear it if you want
Anyway law enforcement here is going around now and enforcing the mask mandate with $250 fines. Finally some intelligent law enforcement action only 60 days too late but hey better late than never
Man that Democrat party is the party of SCIENCE!!!! Infinity genders and protests don't cause outbreaks....but Bars & Churches do!
So youre saying no mask is as good as a mask. I wonder why doctors wear them then? youre really saying this seriously, that masks dont help at all against germs, bacteria, viruses? Im not being sarcastic.
It's Time to Face Facts, America: Masks WORK
Official advice has been confusing and anal retentive about it, but the science isn't hard to grok. Everyone should cover up. Means El Kabong and Walrus and TIC.
In the past few months, with medical supplies dangerously diminished, the CDC, US surgeon general Jerome Adams, and the World Health Organization have urged people not to buy masks, paradoxically claiming that masks are both essential for the safety of health care workers and incapable of protecting the public from Covid-19.
widespread use of masks is one of the many reasons why China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan have controlled outbreaks of coronavirus much more effectively than the US and Europe. “Of course masks work,” sociologist Zeynep Tufekci wrote in a New York Times editorial. “Their use has always been advised as part of the standard response to being around infected people.” Public health expert Shan Soe-Lin and epidemiologist Robert Hecht made a similar argument in the Boston Globe: “We need to change our perception that masks are only for sick people and that it’s weird or shameful to wear one … If more people donned masks it would become a social norm as well as a public health good.” Last week, George Gao, director-general of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said that America and Europe are making a "big mistake" by not telling the public to wear masks during the ongoing pandemic.
Masks reduce the spread of infectious disease by catching microbes expelled by the wearer and protecting the wearer from microbes in their environment. When we cough, sneeze, talk, or simply breathe we emit a plume of air and droplets, which are largely composed of saliva, mucus, salts, and—if we are infected—potentially dangerous microbes. The smallest of these droplets, sometimes called aerosols, may hover or drift through the air for hours, potentially exposing anyone who enters that airspace. Larger droplets may travel only a few feet—or up to 26 feet if propelled by a sneeze—before falling to the ground or onto another surface, such as someone’s skin or clothes.
****WE, THE INTELLECTUALS OF THE WORLD, CAN ONLY CONCLUDE THAT AMERICANS, ESPECIALLY REPUBLICAN TRUMP SUPPORTERS, ARE UNTREATABLY ANALLY RETENTIVE AND SUFFER FROM DEEP MASK-ANXIETY DUE TO HAVING LOW IQ'S ************
Fucking hell, atleast we can explain what is happening now.
Apply shame. Apply fame. The crook and the flail.
