13. However, nothing kept their residents

from leaving home, going to the beaches, and returning home.

3. I still think they're reporting artificially lowered numbers, so it may be much worse.

What about the not-at-all suspicious sudden rise in cases that have been classified as pneumonia? I read that they now have about 5 times the number of pneumonia cases. Weird, huh?

5. Surprising to see Monroe County. They basically were shut down to non-residents, so must be due

to re-opening. Not sure what other explanation there could be. Article does not elaborate.

6. Would be a lot higher but numbers are hidden.

Our governor is making sure of that. Look at the huge rise in pneumonia deaths NOT counted as Covid when compared to recent other years.

8. But we were told that with more tests

there would be more positive results. This is what was supposed to happen with more testing. Now, its a bad thing?

10. trump and GOP Governors exposed!

Causing the virus to spread more now. That's the opposite of making us great again, and a pattern they repeat often, the opposite of the truth.

14. a populace really has to pull together to stop this thing

anything less is guaranteed failure. The spreader mentality goes hand in hand with the virus. It's a mental virus, a dangerous meme, an insane peer pressure.
