Tulsa: super-spreader event

Two weeks after Donald Trump held an in-person rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, COVID-19 cases are surging in that city. Since the rally, the number of new cases has more than tripled, setting new records highs.

This, despite the fact that the rally fizzled, attended by less than a third of the capacity of the venue. The Trump campaign had even built an outdoor stage for the expected overflow crowds, which never materialized.

    What about all the protests and rioters? How many new cases from that? Huh? Huh?

    I’m pretty sick of the above argument. I think there are sad people out there because there wasn’t a large spike due to the BLM protests.

    Every photo I saw of pro-BLM protesters showed them wearing masks or social distancing. Despite this, I’m sure there was some increase in cases due to protests, just as there have undoubtedly been increases due to many essential activities.
