COVID-19 in Mississippi
New Cases and Deaths as of October 4

New Cases

215

New COVID-19 positive test results reported to MSDH as of 6 p.m. yesterday.

New Deaths

0

New COVID-19 related deaths reported to MSDH as of 6 p.m. yesterday.

For some months now I've been posting MS Dept. of Health's new cases and new death numbers. I'm going to take a break from that. If I see significant increases in numbers, I may resume. What I've been watching in addition to the numbers posted above are the seven day average on deaths, the number of patients in ICU, and the number of patients on ventilators, both from the same link, and posted below. I believe that the ICU and the ventilator numbers are a better indicator of what's really going on. I have little confidence in the "cases" and "deaths" numbers.

What I'm seeing is that the average county in Mississippi has fewer than two cases in ICU and and less than one on a ventilator. While I am still being somewhat cautious, I've decided that it's time to crawl out from under my rock.

I'm in a similar boat. Two of my step daughters' husbands have been treated for Covid-19 in the last few weeks. But, looking at the CDC numbers Righttoon posted a while back and the state's ICU and ventilator numbers, I'm going to relax a bit. Having some of those 'underlying' conditions will still cause me to be cautious, but not like before.

It took the media 6 months to convince the world covid-19 was worse than the bubonic plague.
In 3 days Trump kicked it to the curb like an empty Diet Coke can.

I believe everybody has access to the same meds he was given.

I believe he has access to a higher level of care than anyone else. And if you think otherwise then you aren't near as smart as I had you pegged for.

Most definitely but i was saying all along it was no worse than some others we have gone thru. It seems the panic inducing organizations are finally admitting it as well but not getting the news coverage they did when they said we were all going to die. Had the government not incentivised calling everything covid the "numbers" wouldnt be as inflated.

Christian churches and Jewish synagogues = BAD!

Mosques, BLM/Antifa mass "protests," rioting and looting (but I repeat myself) = acceptable.

But "Trump is Hitler" <sarc>

At least in communist/marxist/socialist NYC.

Does the report really mean anything? Are they going to start reporting every case of the Flu?

This is the full statement from the Secretary of State:

"Only the legislature, or the citizens through the initiative process of changing the constitution, can impose additional requirements on voting. While our office has reviewed each of the Governor’s Executive Orders and recommends wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Governor, nor anyone else, may impose requirements on voting.

No entity other than Congress, the Mississippi legislature, or a validly enacted constitutional amendment may place requirements, such as wearing a mask, on voters. I want to be extremely clear. NO voter should be denied the right to vote for not wearing a mask."


– Secretary of State Michael Watson
