    These numbers, along with no additional information, create extra fear. People deserve to at least have some idea where these cases are located and what organizations and activities the infected citizens were involved in.

    From what I have observed in this area there seems to be a denial of the seriousness and contagiousness of this disease. Many people that I have talked to think it’s just the flu. It’s not. Sort of explains why this is Trump country.

    My observation has been that proper mask wearing has been better but there are still some who are not complying. The numbers tell the story.

    Just wait, this area is in for a serious increase now that FSU, PSC, AC. & the Casino are back at it. I have been saying it will continue to get worse for the last 2 months, was hoping I would be wrong but apparently not. Just Wait!

    Only the USA & Brazil are failing in an epic way. And even if we had a semi-intelligent Prez I think it wouldn’t matter as way too many Americans have shown they are way too childish, selfish or ignorant for us to ever be rid of this virus. Sometimes people get what they ask for but it’s a shame they drag innocent ones down with them.
