Point is that it is the cooler seasons in Brazil. Rio doesn't appear to be as hot as Miami is now. And Sao Paulo is even cooler.

Epidemiologists always said that when we were in January/February/March in the Northern Hemisphere that the Southern Hemisphere may get a wave when their cooler months begin.

Y'all go ahead though. It's interesting how some of y'all contradict yourself (sometimes in your same post) then try to stretch, push, twist, turn to make it make sense. I just made my occasional observation.

Could/maybe true about the worst-hit areas per capita in Brazil and I won't deny/refute it.

But I am very deliberate in my communication. I know that in general (irregardless of being near the equator), the Southern Hemisphere is generally more temperate than Northern Hemisphere.

My point in general is that when making comparisons more careful consideration should be given to create reasoned conclusions - and that epidemiologists stated/hypothesized that the rates would rise in the Southern Hemisphere which didn't really fit what the original post implied.

But y'all carry on.

I am having great difficulty filling many of my apartments in some of my prime north side properties.

I keep slashing rents and still no takers.

The rental market in Chicago is very soft right now.

Obviously this is due to Covid

So it isn't surprising that the West Coast has had a mini-spike.

California is opening by county, not statewide. In rural areas restaurants have been open for a couple weeks but are only allowed to operate at 25-50% of max. In SF, restaurants opened today with the same restrictions. I'm not sure about today's status, but I was in Los Angeles late last week and almost every restaurant was still closed to indoor dining. I did notice some al fresco dining in Malibu and Beverly Hills, but generally everything was still boarded up and, if open, to-go only.

In Cali, it does look like cases are flat in LA and most of the Bay Area. It's the remainder of California that's doing increasingly poorly.

LA County has seen record numbers of new daily infections. The Westside was mostly boarded up when I was there late last week. I only saw people dining al fresco in Beverly Hills and Malibu, and even in those areas, most restaurants were still closed.

New York City to enter phase 2 of reopening on Monday, June 22. There had been some concern that it would be pushed back a week:

As part of Phase 2, restaurants and bars can offer outdoor dining, and professional services, administrative support, real estate rental and leasing, and in-store retail will be allowed to reopen.

We seem to have plateaued for now at 261 cases, three deaths.

We're moving to the least restrictive phase on June 25, which is as open as we'll get until there's a vaccine.

Which means the following (we're currently in Level 3, but - unless there is a case of unknown origin between now and then, we'll move to level 2 on the 25th):

And the City is implementing a pedestrian mall on our main downtown drag for the summer to try to save the businesses down there.

In my neck of the woods, cases are rising in all of the state's bigger towns and cities, the city of Raleigh is making masks mandatory in public, the state is considering doing the same, and eight people from West Virginia tested positive for COVID after a trip to Myrtle Beach. Elsewhere in SC, Greenville, an hour south of me, is that state's new epicenter for the disease.

A bright spot though... Hendersonville, where I grew up, and in the next county south of Asheville, couldn't hold a Pride festival and instead held a Pride parade where drag queens drove down Church Street and then up Main Street, much to the delight of all.

IO theater is permanently closing. That's too bad, but I'm sure they'll be replaced after this is all over.

Charlotte brewery, two restaurants close after workers test positive for COVID-19
By Catherine Muccigrosso

A Plaza Midwood area brewery, a South End restaurant and an Italian restaurant have all temporarily closed after employees tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Bruce Moffett of Moffet Restaurant Group decided to temporarily close his Italian restaurant, Stagioni on Providence Road, after a worker tested positive for COVID-19, according to a press release Thursday.

“The employee did not have any direct contact with guests,” the release said.

The worker was asymptomatic, but Moffett made the decision out of “an abundance of caution and to prioritize the health and safety of … staff and guests.”

The Stagioni staff was sent home and tested for COVID-19 despite showing no symptoms, the release said.

The restaurant is being cleaned and sanitized and is expected to reopen June 23.

I’m pulling my hair out with all these articles about young people among cases. Of course young people can be infected, and they might even have symptoms and feel like shit for a week, but that doesn’t justify lockdowns or social distancing.

Considering the U.S. does not have a robust test-and-trace system, and certainly isn't forcibly confining young people who are positive to their homes, what is the alternative?

It's simply scare mongering at this point. The numbers are beyond clear. The old and the sickly are high risk. The focus should be on keeping those people safe.

Let young people get it, build herd immunity, and be done with this.

Most people will get it eventually, before there’s a vaccine that can be widely distributed. The young are not generally at risk, don’t require hospitalization, and will not overwhelm the healthcare system. The more that get it before the predicted second wave the better, because more people with antibodies will actually reduce the severity of said second wave.

Older people should continue to be in a more strict lockdown, like France and Italy had in March/April, while all of this happens.

Italy has had a notorious demographic problem (which is a pain to me, because I like their country very much), but France's fertility rate and youth are still the most dynamic of Western Europe on average, year after year... I don't fear anything much. My country can get over anything. It is strong in spite of all our ugly faults.

Look at figures and see how pitiful the UK has been in the crisis. It is worse than Spain and Italy.

Meanwhile, right now, today, we're still in the first wave, and right now, today, Florida is spiking and running out of ICU beds. Florida has a Cult45 MAGA governor just like GA.
