Tulsa is safe!
Guardian: Seven US states have reported their highest coronavirus patient admissions in the pandemic so far, as cases surge in the US following the easing of restrictions.
Arizona, Arkansas, California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas –which also confirmed a record daily case increase on Tuesday – each admitted record numbers of infected people to hospital, the Washington Post reported.
California saw record infections, too, with more than 5,000 in a single day for the first time, as Arizona, Nevada and Missouri also reported record case increases.
In Florida, Homestead hospital warned that its intensive care unit was at capacity, NBC reported. Florida confirmed 3,200 new cases on Tuesday, which marked the sixth day of more than 25,000 cases.
As Trump spoke of his success in managing the pandemic – and accused Democrats of wanting to keep the economy closed so that “numbers would be bad” at a student rally in Arizona, Dr Anthony Fauci pleaded with people to wear masks in busy public spaces. “Plan A, don’t go in a crowd. Plan B, if you do, make sure you wear a mask,” Fauci said at a Congress hearing.
The US has the highest Covid-19 cases worldwide, with more than 2.3 million, or a quarter of the global total. At least 121,217 people have died in the US so far.

First, I would like to mention that I agree with Mr. Zook the lack of info in the article but I an not sure that the hospital would or could indicate that type of info.
But, to my point:
“Baptist Health confirmed that Homestead Hospital’s intensive care unit is at capacity due in part to coronavirus and more patients having elective surgeries . . .”
If I am not mistaken, while Homestead Hospital, which is a lovely, excellent hospital, it only has 147 total beds. According to the latest AHA Hospital Statistics, less than 1% of the beds in the average hospital are for general ICU purposes. Therefore, the ICU capacity at Homestead has to be, relatively limited. Now, while even one person in ICU for any reason is, to my mind, one too many, it should also be noted the ICU is at capacity “due in PART to coronavirus and more patients having elective surgeries” . . . absolutely no indication of the breakdown which, since many people are now electing to have procedures done that they had postponed, would be illuminating. However, even if all if the ICU beds available were for the Wuhan Virus, it would hardly represent a huge outbreak.
Trump Flu,…I’m not an expert, but it looks like a continued purposeful spread to cause maximum deaths. I have seen no restraint on the mitigation thwart effort.
Our president and the senate are now the highest threat to our national security. It’s a controlled burn.
