Coronavirus numbers don’t lie…. but it seems they do in Texas

May 2, 2020


….it must be some form of new math but I have been tracking the coronavirus numbers, (cases, deaths and recoveries), on the official Texas web site and funny thing the day the governor of Texas implements phase one of reopening the state web site never gets updated. Could it have been because it showed the largest rise in number of COVID-19 cases and the highest number of fatalities since the beginning of this crisis thus making the governors opening plan in direct opposition to the governments guideline, (a downward trajectory of documented cases within a 14-day period), for states to reopen?

I see that I am not the only one noticing this discrepancy as many business owners have decided not to reopen until there is no rise in COVID-19 cases. I do understand the governors thinking because in the past month I have gone food shopping three times without contracting the virus and it appeared to me that many of the grocery store employees have also gone virus free. I know this because after 4 years of shopping the same store and seeing the same people I know when someone is missing.

So despite the spike in numbers of infected and dead the governor believes that adults can responsibly go out and have a meal without an increased danger of becoming infected. 



Though I have already seen
young adults hanging out together
without a mask or gloves
ignoring the possibility of infection
I pray the governor is right
and this is the first step
back to normalcy

    Our governor here has just extended this bs for another 2 weeks. I have noticed an uptick in traffic the last couple of weeks, though.
    I’m sure all of you have seen the almost daily protests against these policies. Good for them.
    He’s joined up with 5-6 other governors in some sort of group together. Guess if one of their states has something happen the rest will join in that way their individual buts are covered.
