That's weird.


Here's a county snapshot, though you have to look at each county separately.

Here is an overview but not the chart I was originally looking at.

The CASES box here also lists one day change.

As I'm a recent Vols fans I look at their message boards. Pretty clear there is a large segment of Tennessee folks still questioning the data. I have no idea what the end game for the CDC as well as health organizations all over the world would be to purposely inflate the figures. What would be gained by creating needless shut downs and panic?

But that seems to be the belief of many in Tennessee and other places for some strange reason.

https://wcyb.com/news/local/large-cr...nforce-mandate

This maskless race made our local news. Packed like sardines, shoulder to shoulder. While the county is experiencing an explosion of coronavirus, the mask “mandate” is not going to be enforced. Therefore, maskless seems to be as common as masked.

Hospitals here are already scaling back or canceling elective procedures. I heard horror stories out of Cookeville Regional yesterday. There needs to be some teeth with these “mandates,” or just remove them and admit it was political posturing all along.

Speedway said the facility was leased by an entity called "Tour Of Destruction". What an appropriate name for this irresponsible organization.



I fear that this also a problem with many outdoor sporting events.

Cookeville Regional Hospital has now suspended any elective surgery that requires an overnight stay because of the jump in cases. It appears that a high percentage of new cases are being traced back to family social gatherings and church events.

I drove by a local diner yesterday and the parking lot was packed. There is no way that there is any kind of distancing in that small building. Sometimes it is like some people are doggedly determined to drag this situation on as long as they can.

From the article:

“Mayor Richard Venable is not going to do that,” Venable said of Virginia’s enforcement. “We're not going to impose a fine until such a time as we've overrun all our healthcare facilities.”

So the mayor is actually going to wait until so many get sick and die that they overrun the hospitals before enforcing the mandate? Interesting strategy.

We are getting overrun.

Positivity rate on my daily COVID metric briefing in the area has basically doubled in two to three weeks. There might be a dozen COVID beds on any given day this week. Most aren’t going on vents or ICU, but you still have to be pretty sick to be admitted. This latest uptick just happened over the past few weeks.

The main Kingsport hospital has stopped elective procedures for now, and I’d bet similar restrictions will be coming to JCMC and the community hospitals. JCMC now has a COVID outbreak with about 25 employees impacted. Sick nurses are having to be backfilled with contract travel nurses. It’s a huge mess.

A new sports bar opened in JC and it is shoulder to shoulder - no distancing or table restrictions. Churches are filling back up.

This is an older than average area with a lot of risk factors - a lot of smoking, drugs, extreme obesity, etc. My family is back to the minimums or off-hours dining, things like that, and I’m definitely a lot more mindful of where I go. Some places are basically off limits for now due to no distancing and shoulder to shoulder packing in.

There was a protest today on the square in Franklin by a group called Mask Free Tennessee. One can only guess the median IQ, what with signs like, "Children DESERVE full oxygen". Full oxygen is actually toxic, but many of these folks consider science to be voodoo, and it shows.

Keep this up and we'll be filling ICUs for years.

Many people are believing that "herd immunity" is the way to go but unfortunately like many other cold-causing viruses any immunity is brief meaning that we are going to have to deal with this in multiple rounds more similar to 1890 and not like 1918.
