Louisiana Covid Update - Day 67

It's Friday, with all that means, ad Belle and I have made our rounds, so it's time to look at the Covid numbers.

The total covid load is recorded at 36,925. Only 421 cases since yesterday.
Fatalities are at 2545,  that's 39 more.
Hospital census is at 867, a decline.  The vent count is also down, to 104.

My home parish of Rapides is totaling a case count of 600.  For some reason that particular screen no longer shows deaths in the parish.  Yesterday we were at 16 dead.

It's time to reopen, wide open.  Covid be damned.  I see that President Trump has weighed in on churches.
In a Friday afternoon press conference, President Trump declares houses of worship "essential services" that must be allowed to open "right now ... this weekend."
That's right.  They never should have closed in the first place.

Let's face it, nothing should have been closed. Put a face mask on to keep your germs to yourself. If you are sick, stay at home until you have been checked out by your physician. Stay out of crowds. Same thing I've heard and have practiced since I was diagnosed with asthma(life-long) and diabetes(24 years).

Of course, it would have been nice if the governments of the world had been honest and told us up-front, that this is a manufactured virus that escaped the lab it was created in to begin with. Would have made the gyration they went through in the beginning a lot more palatable. And I'm still not going to volunteer for Gates' patented vaccine. Fauci and Gates are in this up to their figurative armpits. I don't trust either one of them. Fox guarding the henhouse and all.
