Fauci says there are early signs coronavirus outbreaks are brewing in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee

White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday there are early signs that a coronavirus outbreak could be brewing in Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky.

The so-called positivity rate, or the percentage of tests run that are positive, appears to be rising in those states — an early indication that the outbreak is worsening, Fauci said. While President Donald Trump and others have blamed the rise in cases in the U.S. on increased testing, a growing positivity rate can’t be blamed on increased testing.

“That’s a surefire sign that you’ve got to be really careful,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Coronavirus outbreaks that have ripped through the South have recently shown signs of slowing after states delayed or rolled back reopening plans, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Meanwhile, Covid-19 cases were growing by more than 10% in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee as of Monday compared with a week ago, based on a seven-day average.

2. Actually, Kentucky has a Democratic governor,

but I think the rest are Republicans.

5. Good guess, but here in WI we have a Dem Gov surrounded by Repugs.

Governor Evers truly cares about us, but the Repugs keep pulling the rug out from under him. It's damned infuriating.

4. A bit more than a week behind on Ohio - but yes.

Ohio's cases increased pretty dramatically about 1.5 weeks after the 4th of July (Hmm . . . I wonder if there were big maskless, alcohol-induced carelessness about distancing events that triggered it). Since mask orders for some counties went into effect 2 weeks ago things seem to be stabilizing. The mask order is statewide now - so with any luck, stabilizing will move into declining.
