The best answer is on the state level. Our CDC has been regularly gutted the same way NOAA was earlier in this administration. The idea of selling the nations data to private parties to maximize private sector profit is a recurring theme. If you want to understand what’s going on you really need to look at each state.

OK so is Covid-19 as deadly as the annual flu? Is it hitting a certain demographic a little more sharply? Maybe it’s hitting the same demographic that social cuts are always targeting against. . . . I guess if you have at least an hour of free time you can draw your own conclusions using data that is varied since the best place to find it is state by state. Oh and Florida doesn’t give the age breakdown. Selective data […]
I know that most of us don’t look on the internet to see how local this is on a daily basis, so as a reminder here’s the count to date: Zip code Pos Covid19 Municipalities 15332 30 Finleyville 15438 9 Fayette City 15062 28 Monessen 15012 48 Belle Vernon 15022 54 Charleroi 15314 13 Bentleyville 15067 0 New Eagle 15063 44 Monongahela 15033 23 Donora 15037 40 Elizabeth 15025 209 Clairton 15317 187 Canonsburg PA Data as of 8/5/2020 noon.
I know we rely on social and mass media to inform us, but somehow the warnings back in March to not repeat 1918 haven’t worked. I’ve been holding off on expressing this lately, but now is the time to tackle the running back with the ball, before more blood is shed: How we can unite to live in a world with COVID-19. Why we need to pay attention to the protests in Portland from a constitutional point of view. What […]
Just back from Magic Town and I can’t get over how many people either don’t wear a mask or if they are wearing the mask don’t wear it correctly. Hello Monongahela Valley— Charleroi had over 52 cases recorded and Monongahela was over 40. COVID-19 is everywhere. It will find you if you go out and don’t follow the recommended protocols.

When the world is not open to wild and crazy travel, you need to get creative. This post was started over the 4th of July; as you will note the American covid-19 story continues to be the story that controls the news. One thing you can do to be safe is get out in nature. The fish, bears, deer, turtles, snakes and river otters are generally safer than going out to eat.
https://www.propublica.org/article/two-coasts-one-virus-how-new-york-suffered-nearly-10-times-the-number-of-deaths-as-california Right now the United States of America is anything but united. We have states doing one thing and el presidente pushing to do something different. After taking in some sightings of large gatherings over the Memorial Day weekend, I’m hoping that we don’t see a resurgence of Covid-19 cases in the next few weeks. So what will Crosby continue to help us do? Social Distance, Walk on trails not around other people, wash our piggy’s often and wear a […]
Just taking a few minutes to take in everything that’s going on right now and wondering if I’m the only one thinking the overall big picture may never be the same after the world has been in lock down. I know when I was in Florida after Christmas seeing what was happening in China that we were bound to see something back here in the states, but had no idea it would be this big. If you are wondering if […]
What do the kids do all day, everyday when Covid-19 shutters their schools? I recall those days when I was one of the first people to play with my PC. We had to load programs and save documents using things called floppy disks. If you printed a story it took forever with a dot matrix printer instead of a laser jet. https://www.hmhco.com/blog/free-learning-resources https://www.netflix.com/title/80167821 https://www.duolingo.com/courses
