I wonder what will happen after this Thursday when the results will come back in from the testing center opening up. Also, they say they only have 120 testes. How many people will call and try to get an appointment?

Well that's 118 more than me.

Or they have plenty of staff to take care of you.

must be considered with an increase in testing. Average hospitalized might be the best actual indicator of where we stand.

Mayor Mooney is a chicken little type trying to scare/shame everybody who doesn't share his fear into complying with a mask recommendation (not a mandate). There's a reason it's not a mandate, and I trust those who are working with guv on this more than Mooney.

People are free not to wear masks. I am free not to patronize businesses where staff and patrons are cavalier and behaving as if this is no big deal. I'm also free to tell anyone, in my own particular way, that I don't approve of them getting physically close to me like we're old friends, and if anyone happens to be on the receiving end of this, please don't take it personally; I just don't want to end up on a ventilator...nothing personal. Good luck to everyone.

I agree with your position. We should all be free to take whichever path we want to on this, to wear masks or not, to patronize shops that do/don't require masks or not (shops are free to choose as well), etc. And while I choose not to wear the mask, I do keep a bit of a distance between myself and others I don't know b/c I don't know their preferences. And, yes, Good luck to everyone.

I had to go to the store tonight. I saw too people not wearing masks. It almost looked like summer last year. I expect we get hit with something in about 3-4 weeks.

Mooney wasn't wearing a mask when I saw him a couple of weeks ago, when he went through the Tower Point HEB self checkout. Amazing.

I mean really, I just watched the presser section with Mayor Mooney shaming all who don't wear a mask and reminding us about freezers outside morgues in New Jersey. Will someone please remind him we have 3 people in the entire county in the hospital due to Covid-19 and haven't had a death in 16 days? That's the kind of talk you expect to hear when hospitals are teetering near capacity.

And 11 of those deaths were from The Waterford.

1 death we know is not connected to The Waterford, and unless I missed something, the other 4 are unknown.

As for Mooney. He is probably salivating while thinking about what the governor of New Mexico did to Gallup and wishing he could do it here.

What's up with the vet school not being allowed to do testing en masse. It sounds like a beaurocratic problem that there is a huge incentive to overcome .. 1800 tests a day here in CS!

Has nothing to do with this forum post subject. They are handling our local demand well. Maybe some statewide forum .....

I disagree, I thought about making a new thread but decided this would be the right place as others were lamenting about us not having more testing locally. I do think this could have an impact statewide, but that's not the reason I'm asking here.

Thanks for linking. This is the same government garbage that held in testing in the beginning of the pandemic. Just insane.

Out early today, and the expected spike from 2 days of nothing.

10 new cases
1 new death (Woman in her 90s who was not hospitalized in B/CS)
114 test results vs. 7 over the two previous days.
1 more in the hospital.

77803 +4
77840 +1
77845 +5

Looks like increases are people in their 30s, 40s, 60s, and 70s and mostly among Hispanics and women.

Remember that with COVID exposure to illness is usually 7ish days. Add in testing delay of a day or 2 and you should not expect to see an increase based on social changes for 10 days.

I expect to see a small bump in 10 days and a significant bump in 20 but I believe our hospitals are prepared at this time.

Yeah, it has nothing to do with any changes in what is and isn't open, although I would bet a lot of people think it does.

IMO, it is because there are almost no test results Sunday or Monday, and this is the results catching up.

Numbers are starting to rise again. Not good.

Did you read the two posts above or did you just want to drop a doom bomb?

This is not the first time we've seen 2-3 days with little to nothing, and almost no increase in test results, and them all of a sudden, a higher than normal of test results come back. Clearly some lab dumped a bunch of results at once, because there is no chance that only 7 tests were conducted over multiple days.

Deaths and hospitalizations aren't though. That's more important than the number of cases.

Numbers are going to rise. It is the nature of this virus. The key factor is hospital utilization and availability. This virus is way too wide spread to quarantine to death. China made sure of that by not restricting international flights in December.

This is Sweden.

They did not close their business or schools! They did ask the elderly and sick to shelter in place.

Note the spikes? However they are still dropping and way ahead of us in getting herd immunity. Let's be like Sweden!



Texas for comparison.

And though Sweden's hospitals are not overwhelmed yet, they did put in place a policy that no one 80 years or older gets admitted to the ICU. Same goes for those 60 and over with an underlying condition. That policy would sure clear out a bunch of NY City's hospitals but not sure how Americans would feel about grandma being turned away simply due to age.

That's what happens with government run healthcare.

So you are ok with a 10% death rate?

You are welcome to move to Sweden if you want.
