Good News: Reports Say There’s Been No Increase Of Detected Coronavirus Infections In Early-Opening States

Published

People all across the United States have been holding their breath, waiting to hear reports from early opening states about whether or not getting back to work and stimulating the economies in the light of the COVID-19 crisis would cause a surge in new cases.

Well, reports are finally starting to trickle in from these states, and so far, it seems the news is good. As of this writing, there have not been any significant upticks in detected cases in states that have begun the long process of reopening after being locked down for over a month.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

“The incubation period for COVID-19 could be up to 14 days, and that isn’t necessarily when people get tested by health care workers. It often takes longer,” said Dr. Marissa Levine, a former state health commissioner in Virginia. “So, it may be too early to make a determination.”

Others suggested we may have to wait for even more time to elapse.

“Because there are substantial delays from the time of infection to reporting of a case, we probably need to wait about 3-4 weeks after the restrictions are lifted to start to grasp its effect on the trajectory of the epidemics,” said Gerardo Chowell, chairman of the Department of Population Health Sciences at Georgia State University.

It’s important to note that just because the economies in these states are starting to open, that doesn’t mean folks have abandoned social distancing measures. Lots of folks are still implementing these guidelines as they reopen their businesses in order to protect their customers and ensure a safe environment for workers.

“I think society will not necessarily run to the hair salons or the movie theaters immediately after the restrictions are lifted, but it may take people some time to regain confidence,” Chowell said.

Now, while the news is mostly good, the risk posed by coronavirus is still real. There was a new outbreak of the illness at a Colorado mushroom farm where 93 people were tested for the virus and 19 tested positive.

What this means is that it seems likely that more and more states will feel safe to open up and the data backs up that decision. Of course there will be new cases. We cannot stop the spread of this illness altogether. That would be nice if we could, but we can’t.

That was never the intent of the lockdown to begin with. It was to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by cases of the illness. We’ve managed to do that. Now it’s time to get back to work before the economy takes another big hit and goes down for the count.

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…
