As of 12/26/2020 there were 560,892 reported cases of the coronavirus in Tennessee. 6,443 people died from it. That's over approx. 9 months.

As of 5/6/2021 there have been 852,072 coronavirus cases reported. 12,245 people have died from it.

That's an additional 291,180 cases and 5,802 deaths in just over 4 months.

Vaccines can be had in plenty of locations. It's time for everyone to protect their fellow citizens. It would be greatly appreciated.

You know, it SEEMS Like

You know, it SEEMS Like things are getting better (despite failed state and county government), but then you read this. Then you read that Gen. uh HVAC repairman Gov. Lee and professional wrestler Mayor Jacobs have declared the pandemic is over and lifted all restrictions.

Where is the disconnect?

The only silver linings are a) SOME local governments and businesses took it seriously, thus likely preventing an even worse catastrophe, and b) we have a vaccine which is making a difference. Now, if only people would actually GET it.

Comparing to last year

We are in far worse shape than we were last year, with Mother's Day, Memorial Day, graduations, summer camps, and the abandonment of mask mandates all sitting ahead of us.

Certain segments of society are getting vaccinated, but we really don't know how those results will affect the rest of the population.

Not saying this is, or isn't a deliberate act of terrorism, but if I was to design a second wave bio terrorist attack against our community, this is how I would consider doing it.

There's a lot of unknowns playing into the next year.
