this just in, no link yet. asshole abbott is "pausing" the openings...

but he is not rolling anything back.

so anything that is open now can stay open.

so in other words, nothing is still being done.

5. It's on Google news etc:

Gov. Greg Abbott announced Thursday morning that he will pause any further phases of reopening Texas and that he is once again putting a stop to elective surgeries to preserve bed space for coronavirus patients in certain counties.

Abbott's latest action does nothing to reverse any of the reopening phases he's already allowed for — meaning that bars, restaurants, malls, bowling alleys and other businesses are still allowed to remain open with some capacity limitations. “The last thing we want to do as a state is go backwards and close down businesses, " he wrote in a press release on Thursday, but the "pause will help our state corral the spread."

The latest ban on elective procedures only applies to Bexar, Dallas, Harris and Travis counties, four areas where the number of patients hospitalized with virus is quickly progressing.

8. No

The pausing electives will help with hospital beds, but that's about it.

But it isn't fair to those who put the procedures off. One of the first things he did was open the elective procedures. Now the first thing he is closing are the procedures. Of course, it an can allocate resources quickly.

He really needs to shut down the bars, gyms and the eat in dining.
