I'll be curious to see what South Carolina's recovery looks like. Our death rate is about half of Georgia's. Grant it some parts of our state will rebound quicker than others. Some counties were struggling pre-COVID anyways, but still Myrtle Beach was rocking and rolling over the memorial day weekend haha.

Sorry, Fox "News" is not a reliable source. Care to post a source that is actually reliable?

The study was independent of Fox so it’s reliable. Sorry it doesn’t fit your narrative.

I would imagine it will start to pick up as well. Demand increases a little each day as more things open. Hope you guys have a swift recovery as well.

At this point in time is far too early to be celebrating a returning economy. By the later part of summer we will have much more reliable info to go on so as to understand whether any such trends that may be occurring actually are long -lasting or have staying power.

It should also be pointed out that at this point in time, the map I saw on tv yesterday showed that the states with the fastest percentage increases currently happening in case numbers are Southern states.

Get back to me after we've seen this pandemic play out a bit longer before one goes around stating that so and so "..did the right thing." or "Just like I predicted."

I worked in the financial planning industry for over 30 years. in that field the long term perspective was always advocated. That same principle can and should be applied to our views in numerous other factors.

91-DIVOC : Flip the script on COVID-19

Mississippi's daily cases continue to rise.
Alabama's have recently surged.
Ours have stagnated.
After weeks of recovering, Florida's have stagnated.
South Carolina's are increasing again.

Meanwhile, remember how New York state used to be in horrible shape? Their life-saving measures are getting the coronavirus there under control. So is Rhode Island. Oregon remains one of the least infected in the country.

Southern states have chosen to paint themselves into the corner. They have forced themselves into a false choice between human sacrifice and the economy. They are going to have to shut down again unless they want even more lives lost to this brutal disease.

NY's daily new case number is 1,768. Georgia's is 617 (both May 28 numbers, the most current).

So NY is STILL almost 3x GA with 2x the population. They have to decrease another 1/3 to hit GA's numbers WHILE STILL SHUT DOWN. NY has just started to reopen in areas like Long Island (Phase 1, which involves many businesses that never closed in GA). No New York area is beyond Phase 1 yet. So nobody gets a haircut, nails done, goes to a restaurant, etc. NYC is STILL shut down and will be for weeks. GA has been reopening for over a month.

It's not that Southern states are painting themselves in a corner. It's that NY was so bad that their "life-saving measures" were necessary. And given their new infection rate STILL being worse than Georgia's it's hardly getting under control.

Now that NY is reopening, will their numbers continue to drop or will they remain about the same, which is still 1.5x GA's per capita average? Or will it grow, just as Georgia's did a bit after re-opening?

If you're going to compare you need to consider the entire picture.

Some people want to get back into the water while Jaws is still in there.

Go back and look at the graph and notice that it was per capita. Your argument is invalid.

And hotspots have crept up. Kemp has taken away local governments' power to shut down in those emergency situations and save human lives.

As I said, Mississippi continues to get worse, Alabama continues to get worse, South Carolina continues to get worse, and we have stagnated.

These states are probably going to have to shut down again or continue their escalation of human sacrifice.

They may be reopening too soon. Many nations around the world showed exactly how to kill off this virus. Ours is not one of them.

Might I recommend leading by example?
