  1. Good thing Nevada has the virus under control https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/nevada-coronavirus-cases.html
  2. That's like saying you are going to be shot by a bullet sooner or later. If you're in a battlefield, yes. If not, not so much.
  3. And this review from Nature cites a lot of research saying it's higher. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01738-2 So not nearly so cut-and-dried as you believe.
  4. No, We don't know that. Estimates vary. 80% is the top of the range.
  5. So wise to claim an imaginary degree in architecture. Be Best, Ms. Trump!
  6. And then there's this: July 5 is when death rates started to spike sharply. June 16 is when infections started to spike sharply. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/texas-coronavirus-cases.html
  7. Really? Gov. Abbott warns of ‘greater fatalities’ from COVID-19 in Texas' coming weeks Gov. Greg Abbott is warning of even “greater fatalities” from COVID-19 as the number of people in hospitals with lab-confirmed cases hit a record 8,698 on Monday. During a television interview in Dallas, Abbott agreed that at one point even as new coronavirus infections were rising, the state’s deaths were decreasing — which could have been seen as good news. But he said heading into the Fourth of July weekend, Texas had its deadliest four-day stretch since the pandemic started, and he warned of things to come. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/politics/texas/article/Gov-Abbott-warns-of-greater-fatalities-15390029.php
  8. And that answers the question about hospitalization how? Also, death is a lagging indicator. Anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 weeks. And deaths are now beginning to increase. Give how much infections have spiked, the deaths will spike too.
  9. Do you understand that hospitals are being overwhelmed and what the means not just for covid patients but for others who need their services?
