Texas, Arizona, Oregon Report Significant Coronavirus Spikes After Reopening Economy

Source: Newsweek

Health authorities in 14 states reported more new cases of the novel coronavirus last week compared to the week before, with Texas, Arizona and Oregon seeing the largest increases, Axios reported on Thursday. Though data confirmed by other states showed smaller degrees of change in cases identified over the last two weeks, several--including California and North Carolina--continued to report new diagnoses in high quantities.

All United States regions have reopened areas of their respective economies since implementing restrictions near the start of the virus pandemic. As Axios' report indicated, states that reopened earlier have seen recent upturns in seven-day averages of new cases diagnosed.

Arizona reported the most significant spike, with more than twice as many cases identified last week compared to the week prior, followed by Oregon and Texas. Weekly case counts recorded in Oregon were considerably lower than those recorded in Texas.

In Texas, daily reports of new cases reached a record high on May 17, shortly after Governor Greg Abbott initiated the state's reopening plan. Non-essential businesses were permitted to begin reopening during the first week of May, and most industries had resumed services to some extent by the month's halfway point.

Praise the Lord and pass the intubator

5. And in Sweden, where the CV outbreak was treated like the flu, and everyone acted like

everything was normal, business went on as normal, etc., deaths from the CV spiraled upwards, an 'unplanned' result (vs. what they were hoping for (they were hoping for a herd immunity type of response, instead, they got more deaths than they expected). Who would have thought this?

Same thing is going to happen here and backfire. Figures. The republicans have nailed it again!

7. I thought COVID was over?

maybe tear gas and flash bangs will kill it if sunshine and warm summer weather doesn't.

In all seriousness, I think we'll see spikes from protesters too in another week or so.

8. can we file this under "no shit sherlock?"

and my fucking halfwit gov abbott is going into "phase 3" here in texas of opening shit back up.

this is phase 3, or as I like to call it, culling the population

-All businesses currently operating at 25% capacity can expand their occupancy to 50% with certain exceptions

-Bars and similar businesses may increase their capacity to 50% as long as patrons are seated

-Amusement parks and carnivals in counties with less than 1,000 confirmed positive cases may open at 50% capacity

-Restaurants may expand their maximum table size from 6 to 10 people

if my trip to whole foods yesterday was any indication of how this is going to go, no one will be wearing the "optional" mask and there will be zero social distancing.

this coming winter, but more than likely this summer will be horrible.

9. Those three states may give pause to any insurance carrier thinking of underwriting the

Republican Convention. Those states had a light re-opening. A convention is Ground Zero for CV-19.

10. Weird, According to The Oregonian, there hasn't been a surge

Though, with so many doffing masks and behaving "normally," a surge seems inevitable.

11. People in these states will see for themselves

Trump and these Governors like Abbott have promoted the spreading of this virus to worsen again, and will try to force people back to work with a very active pandemic attacking. Hope the American people vote these bums out of office forcing this to happen, and making the virus spread increase.

14. Given how wide spread it is I think we are going to have to simply ride it out now.

Had the Trump administration and other Republicans in office been willing to support a nationwide lockdown for about 3 to 4 weeks max it might have been able to be contained but they did not and now the horse is out of the barn.
