In a major reversal, the Republican governors of Florida and Texas rolled back their states’ aggressive reopenings Friday — which President Trump had touted as successful national models —ordering bars to close and restaurants to reduce capacity as coronavirus infections surged.

Florida banned alcohol consumption at bars as new coronavirus cases neared 9,000, almost double the previous record set two days ago. The state has reported 111,724 COVID-19 cases since March, more than a fifth of them this week, and 3,327 deaths as of Thursday.

Florida officials attributed the new outbreak to young people crowding bars that reopened three weeks ago at half capacity, although many patrons ignored social distancing restrictions. The state’s seven-day average for positive COVID-19 tests has tripled since the start of the month to 13.4%.

Infections have risen dramatically across the nation following business reopenings and protests that began last month after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

In Texas, where Vice President Mike Pence was scheduled to visit Sunday for an indoor “Celebrate Freedom” event at a 14,000-member Dallas megachurch, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott announced he was effectively closing bars and reducing restaurant capacity from 75% to 50%.

Thank you for this collection of important stats. I’m increasingly scared of the increase in new cases and positive ones, etc. So few wear masks here in OB, Loma Portal and Pt. Loma I think the only time I’ can go outside is late at night or very early a.m. if I don’t want to come face to face with someone with the virus. I don’t want to die and I’m on my own. We all are.

HA! “Disturbing?” Well dang, Frank, I guess that is one way to put it though you know I tend to lean heavily towards Shelly’s comment of “I’m increasingly scared” as a more appropriate response. I wonder how most people described the Pandemic in 1918-1920? After all, that only killed maybe 100 million out of over a billion! s/

Shelly, I also am finding myself increasingly scared at what I see every time I go off property. No masks anywhere, nobody paying any attention to social distancing, and I’m hear intelligent friends and neighbors say they “just can’t continue to hide” or “if I catch it that’s just the way it has to be.”

That boggles my mind to hear that from otherwise sane people. So Shelly, you go on being extremely careful! And yes, it does certainly look like we are on our own, doesn’t it? Capitalism is completely unable to deal with a Pandemic. Unfortunately, Wave 2 is expected to hit in September and the way things are going we won’t even be through Wave 1 yet.

Is anybody reading the links I’ve posted on other OB Rag articles? I certainly hope so though the last comment I had was from Geoff who has always given me the impression of being a scofflaw about the urgency of the situation. Your choice, Geoff, and honestly, I really REALLY hope you are correct and not me! I actually do hope it works out for you as I’ve now had two people I know die of this and they were ugly, ugly deaths.

Here is the Rag link to my latest medical links that maybe nobody has read on the other Rag article. Scroll down to the last three comments I’ve posted below Geoff’s and read them, and then THINK about what they say. Please!

Scary but I think it’s safe say we all know this was coming. It was totally inevitable but at the same time we can’t stay shut down forever. I will be going to to full time hours at my job regardless of the risks and I’m sure it’s the same for many others.

Hey Chris: don’t you think it’s a bit strange that if the working class not the wealthy don’t go to work the entire Capitalist economy crashes into the gutter…and the government of Wbush and OBAMA and Trump give trillions to the banks and wealthy millionaires and billionaires?

The only people in this country who are too big to fail IS THE WORKERS NOT THE RICH!

Not a fan of that fact but the rent and bills need to be paid.

And no it’s not funny but sad.
