What I find surprising is that we hear not a peep out of the Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Partnership about the damage being done to local business by the state and now-county, lockdown. You have to wonder if there isn't a tacit deal: "We won't criticize your stupid lockdown Jan, but in return you'd better deliver one helluva taxpayer compensation package." Meanwhile the science is pointing to the stupidity of the general lockdown of business. People would do what was needed voluntarily social-distancing, the face-masks, and sanitizing at stores. And oldies with health problems will self-quarantine anyway. We don't need orders from King Larry or from Her Royal Highness Jan.

Of the 90, how many were from Nursing facilities?

With more testing comes more "cases". The numbers to focus on are those that the politicians said need to flatten when the lockdowns started so that the health care system is not overburdened. Watch the number of hosipitalizations and deaths.

With no vaccine in the immediate future and the entire population being potential carriers, we need to reopen the economy with precautions such as masks. With increased numbers of tests being conducted, we are finding out that for the vast majority of the population, Covid-19 is a non-event. The exceptions are those on the CDC's list of people with underlying conditions - age being one of them as demonstrated right here in FredCo with 3/4 of the deaths occuring in congregate living facilties.

The Georgia Department of Health's website shows deaths there have plateaued and are declining despite the dire warnings of the media.

If the politicians wait much longer, there won't be much left to reopen.

Being in Richmond for the week I’m amazed at the difference between Marylinistan and the rest of “Free America”. Seen patio dining in many restaurants here and at the Wegmans here only the employees are required to wear masks. The shoppers were divided 50/50 in wearing masks in the store. Also ALL STORES have reopened!!! Queen Jan...do you hear me!!!

I just happened to glance at the market ticker on the right side of the main FNP page this morning. I checked when was the last time the market equities were at the current level, and turned out it was late July 2019 with similar up and down pattern of the last few weeks. I checked national headlines for July 2019 and one big one was an outbreak of an unknown virus at nursing homes killing older people. CDC was unable to identify it, it infected both workers and patients alike. Link:
