Wow.

We are within a week of full/beyond capacity for ICU beds. Let's hope Mayor Jacobs abnormal run of good luck continues.

Six or eight weeks ago I pulled through Rocky Hill Center and saw virtually no masks. At the time 37919 was the top case by zip code area. Now, as many or more people are wearing masks as not and the 37919 cases are falling behind almost all other zip codes. Is this a scientific study? Nope. It's a personal observation, but, what does it tell you?

Hospitalized

Only four are currently hospitalized for Covid 19. While the number of cases are rising, hospitalization and death rates are not increasing. The older citizens are taking precautions while the younger citizens are back to normal.

Well ....

You certainly appear to be on top of things. I'll go ahead and plan my fall and holidays around your assertions and their implied predictions. The football team is immune, right?

Go Vols!

Too many people are

Too many people are inconsiderate and spoiled and feel no sense of responsibility for causing others to get seriously ill or die. This attitude of ignorance, selfishness, and arrogance in so many is sad and deadly. It is disappointing and frustrating to be around people with such disregard for the well being of others. We should be prepared for the worst in the coming months and much of the blame can be given to our buffoon President and his followers.
