Louisiana Covid Update - Day 53

Well, it looks like the Louisiana Dept of Health got their crap together and released the numbers on time.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Today, the LDH is reporting 30,855 total cases.  That's 203 more than yesterday.
Fatalities today stand at 2154.  An increase of 19 since yesterday.
Hospital census is at 1359, down 173 in the last 24 hours.  The vent count is down 4, to 185.

My home parish of Rapides is reporting 338 cases, up 22 since yesterday.  Deaths are still at 11.

Our petty tyrant governor is going to give a press conference at 2:30 CDT today to tell us how he intends to ramp up testing ad do contact tracing.  Contact tracing, you ask?  Yeah, that's when the government contacts you and asks for all kinds of personal information.  I'm not going to respond to any of that.  Screw 'em ad the horse they rode in on.  I have the right to remain silent.  They can go piss up a rope.

Contact tracing IS going to go wrong in so many ways... sigh
