We've had a lot of reopening's in the past few weeks. Some people are carriers without synthons. Now they are out with others that can catch anything. Then it's to late.

Yeah if you can believe the numbers. I mean they list deaths that happened previously as new deaths on the current date. So how much of their reporting can you trust?

The top 10 causes of death
24 May 2018
Of the 56.9 million deaths worldwide in 2016, more than half (54%) were due to the top 10 causes. Ischaemic heart disease and stroke are the world’s biggest killers, accounting for a combined 15.2 million deaths in 2016. These diseases have remained the leading causes of death globally in the last 15 years.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease claimed 3.0 million lives in 2016, while lung cancer (along with trachea and bronchus cancers) caused 1.7 million deaths. Diabetes killed 1.6 million people in 2016, up from less than 1 million in 2000. Deaths due to dementias more than doubled between 2000 and 2016, making it the 5th leading cause of global deaths in 2016 compared to 14th in 2000.
Lower respiratory infections remained the most deadly communicable disease, causing 3.0 million deaths worldwide in 2016. The death rate from diarrhoeal diseases decreased by almost 1 million between 2000 and 2016, but still caused 1.4 million deaths in 2016. Similarly, the number of tuberculosis deaths decreased during the same period, but is still among the top 10 causes with a death toll of 1.3 million. HIV/AIDS is no longer among the world’s top 10 causes of death, having killed 1.0 million people in 2016 compared with 1.5 million in 2000.
Road injuries killed 1.4 million people in 2016, about three-quarters (74%) of whom were men and boys.

#1 and #3 under Challenges is because Southern cooking is so dang good. I'd rather become one of those statistics than eat stuff that tastes like cardboard.

Oktibbeha county is getting hit pretty hard. The hospital Covid ward is at full capacity and the nursing staff is saying they just can't work any longer hours than they already are - they are worn out. Additionally, MS did not get supplied properly with PPE. MSU gave the hospital all the M95 masks and face shields they had extra which has gotten them this far, but those are running out.

Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland was expected to signed an order on Thursday requiring residents to wear masks in public, and Sam Hardiman reported that the mandate is already being enforced in Memphis via verbal warnings.

Nashville Mayor John Cooper is weighing a similar measure, along with other options, Yihyun Jeong and Brett Kelman reported, including an ordinance mandating masks for essential workers.

And Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto issued a mask requirement for residents there on Wednesday only to walk it back to "recommendation" status after he realized enforcement would be an issue.
