On this, the 58th day of the Louisiana Covid Lockdown, let's look at the numbers.
Active cases today total 32,662. That's an increase of 612 cases statewide. With increased testing, this number is going to become irrelevant. What will be important is the number of hospitalizations.
Fatalities today are at 2315, an increase of 34. That's sad
Hospital census is down to 1194, from 1320 yesterday. That's a sizable drop. Vent count is up one case, to 147.
The total disease load is at 7/10th of one percent across Louisiana. I don't know how we are supposed to flatten a curve that never gets over 1% of total population. Graphed accurately, over time, it would simply be a wavy straight line down near the 0 axis.
My home parish of Rapides is reporting 394 cases with 13 death. This number represents 3/10ths of one percent of total population.
This whole lockdown is bullshit, and people with brains understand it.
