1. Today and yesterday FL had the 2 highest days of positive test rates.

And the theme parks are only starting to open. Sea World opened yesterday. Disney is still to come.

Think about that for a second.

We were told (wishful thinking) that the heat and humidity would weaken the virus. The heat and humidity are official here in FL and yet we are experiencing a spike. Yesterday we had 1,698 new cases. Today we had 1,904. I use World of Meters. Again, thatís the 2 highest days weíve had. Our 7 day rolling average is likely heading in the wrong direction also.

DeSatan wonít publish the COVID hospital rates. If that info is accessible he makes it hard to get. Our percent positive test rate for the last week is edging up so the spike is not purely a function of more testing. I read on Monday on CNN that our R factor edged up to 1.07 and anything above 1 leads to exponential growth.

If anyone is reading this and thinking about coming to FL for vacation this summer, Iím sorry to say that I would stay the heck away. We are trying to get a cabin in the north GA mountain for a week but other than that donít come. And, yes, that hurts my stateís economy but this state is led by idiots and it could kill you.
