Unreleased WH Report Shows The Heartland Of America Is At Risk
We are in the process of opening the country and in some places, like Georgia, it looks like our lockdown and other precautionary methods have worked as numbers are looking to have stabilized. But a leaked unreleased report is showing that not every State is as lucky when it comes to this pandemic.
"....Cases are decreasing in 14 states, they are rising in nine states... A lack of widespread testing in 27 other states, plus Washington and Puerto Rico, suggests that cases in those areas are being undercounted."
"The 10 top areas recorded surges of 72.4 percent or greater over a seven-day period compared to the previous week, according to a set of tables produced for the task force by its data and analytics unit. The metropolitan areas include Nashville, Tennessee; Des Moines, Iowa; Amarillo, Texas; and — atop the list, with a 650 percent increase — Central City, Kentucky."
"On a separate list of "locations to watch," which didn't meet the precise criteria for the first set: Charlotte, North Carolina; Kansas City, Missouri; Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska; Minneapolis; Montgomery, Alabama; Columbus, Ohio; and Phoenix. The rates of new cases in Charlotte and Kansas City represented increases of more than 200 percent over the previous week, and other tables included in the data show clusters in neighboring counties that don't form geographic areas on their own, such as Wisconsin's Kenosha and Racine counties, which neighbor each other between Chicago and Milwaukee.
So far, more than 80,000 people in the U.S. have died because of the coronavirus, and the rate of new cases overall hasn't yet subsided."
"Most of us feel that the number of deaths are likely higher than" the 80,000 that is currently reported, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testified to a Senate committee on Tuesday. "The number is likely higher. I don't know exactly what percent higher, but almost certainly, it's higher."
This is truly unfortunate as we need to get back to work even if the work is done in a mask and gloves. Our economy has been suffering during this pandemic with all of the lockdowns and restrictions on non-essential businesses. But we still need to be aware and when it comes to how this virus is spreading to keep our families safe, especially those who are high risk or older. Our country needs to open up as people need to feed their families and a $1200 check is not going to keep foods on the table and bills paid.
