Since June 11th, we have jumped from 7 million global cases to over 23 million.
The United States jumped from 2 Million cases to 6 Million. From 112k dead to just under 200k.
Globally areas that had halted the spread are now getting new hot spot areas of infection.
Sweden, who attempted herd immunity is now requiring masks for everyone and they have the highest death rate per infection. They tried.
The US handling of this is still a mixed bag and now there is a push for herd immunity here as well. The statistics have been a mess, with the CDC data being pushed into a new system. Every day there is drama and confusion, which is what they want.
Locally I was able to get a free test quickly. Fill paperwork, drive up, get swab and leave. Took three days to get results and we were pleased with that process.
Elections are coming up in November and the US is a mess. Turmoil everywhere.
BLM protests continue and there are nightly issues between ‘Patriots’ and BLM/Protest folks. A white 17 year old with an assault style rife crossed state lines, to defend property he didn’t own. He was chased, killed someone. Ran from the scene right past the police as people pointed him out as having shot someone dead. He was chased and attacked, shot and killed another person and wounded one more. He is being hailed as a hero on the right and a murderer on the left.
He was not old enough to carry that weapon. He crossed state lines with that weapon. He defended property that was not his. He is responsible for all of those things and being charged with murder.
The President is defending him.
I’m terrified at what November brings. No matter who we elect there will be turmoil and the prospect of more violence and I am very afraid.
