Ya know... the republicl0wn governor my state defied Trumpibunkerboi and flatlined cases. I live in a densely populated area.

When Trumpibunkerboi tried to ration out PPE to us(and everyone else) using the shortages to get even with the "blue states" He used his wife's connection to get some for the state from Korea... bypassing the feds.

Abbott warns if spread of COVID-19 doesn't slow, the next step would have to be a lockdown'

Idiots still haven't learned.

Lock it down now if you're considering lock downs.

With the time lag you're looking at two weeks of case load expansion before it levels off and starts contracting. At the rate Texas is increasing they'll be at 50-60K cases per day before it slows.

They are putting the dead in refrigerated trucks because the hospital morgues are full.

But they aren't counting anyone who died from Coronavirus unless they confirm it with a test.

Since there is a test shortage, they aren't testing everyone who died.

Who was the idiot last week telling us how great Houston was compared to New York?

Who was the idiot who jumped on Yav because he pointed out the time delay between infection, hospitalization and death?

Looks like idiot was wrong yet again.

No, they're not. Not yet anyways.

Houston was doing great until a simultaneous:

25% re-opening of retail business
Local approval of outdoor mass political gatherings and isolated rioting
All large events are cancelled except protests, but out-of-lockdown house parties everywhere.

The only large event left while the numbers were flying up was the GOP convention, and it's now cancelled to and the city is going to have to cut Republicans a check.
