We’re Number 1

Do you ever wonder why the US has so many more Covid-19 cases and deaths than anywhere else in the world?

Yes, DisneyWorld really did reopen last weekend, despite the fact that Florida now holds the record for most new cases in a single day, and right now has the most number of active cases of any state.

Just in case you think this is not a fair comparison because of population size, Flurida has less than 3 times the population of Hong Kong, and even that is probably offset by the fact that Hong Kong has a much higher population density.

Here’s the numbers from Worldometers:

Can you even imagine what opening up our schools is going to do to us?

Donald Trump said during his campaign “We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning.” Is this what he meant?

    electoral-vote ( had really good points on school opening today.

    As a single father, I have to get my kids out of the house to work and not spend all day in being teacher to them. It is good thing that I am economically well off and I can survive not working for good amount of time. My ISD is doing mix remote/in-person. I am not sure how they will pull it off, but again the ISD is pretty much rich ISD, so they can just hire a lot.

    But I agree with electoral-vote on all the challenges, and perhaps a good uniform approach will be better right now.
