St. Louis Region Has 'One Last Chance' To Curb Coronavirus Before Restrictions Return

The St. Louis region could see renewed government restrictions to stop the spread of the coronavirus if the number of new cases doesn’t go down within a week, St. Louis and St. Louis County leaders said Monday.

The number of people testing positive is increasing in the bistate area. The metro area has seen about 1,412 new positive cases per day over the last week. That's up 57.8% over last week, according to data gathered by the New York Times.

That puts the region at a dangerous crossroads, St. Louis County Executive Sam Page told reporters Monday.

“I want to be clear with everyone: If this doesn’t change a week or two from now, and we’re standing here with the same rate of increase, then we will have to be considering more restrictions,” he said. “We have one last chance to slow the cases of COVID-19 in our community before we are forced to take action.”

1. There is a growing realization that something in the STLMO area is about to fall, that is,

restrictions are about to occur again.

It does not make sense that someone can go out while in the city of STLMO, till 11 p.m. (current curfew) and then run out to the county, after 11 p.m. and stay out longer (not under a curfew).

That's why the county is seeing so many CV cases. Same thing about Illinois across the river, they're coming over here and spreading the CV around, like I heard yesterday that Illinois had 11K cases of CV, and here in MO, we had 4K cases (and IL is wide open I think).
Just reinfecting / spreading the CV around.
