    Last comment, if another $1200 Check goes out to individuals, coupled with the action the Federal Reserve has taken, the economy could bounce back extremely fast. Like Q4 fast. Anything direct to consumer is going to thrive.

    I know this much government intervention pains some of the libertarians on this board but if the federal government provides a “bridge” during this process to the other side, we will likely all be better off (in the near term anyways).
    Libertarians should generally be behind some level of payout. The gov suspended some rights of the people. The people should be compensated.

      Four straight days of record high new cases here in Winston-Salem. Unfortunately, the virus wasn’t really “here” for the last 6 weeks, and right at the time where it actually is here and spreading randomly through the community, the political will power to take action is exhausted. We will be reopening fully next Friday and it is possible that it will only exacerbate the current rise.

      Many areas will find they played their cards too early and will not be able to take the necessary steps to mitigate spread when it actually is spreading rampant in the community.
      Do you have a chart for daily hospitalizations for Winston-Salem and/or Forsyth?

      • This is a good read from a Minnesota Mayo Clinic ICU intensivist who volunteered for a few days at a NYC hospital in late April.

          Since all of the government's revenues come from the people this is really the people compensating the people. That said I have no problem helping out my fellow citizens especially those hurt the most by this pandemic Both my wife and I have been able to work through this pandemic and at least financially we have not been hurt too badly at this point. I would gladly return the check we received and that may well be the case when I file my 2020 returns as once I file my 2019 return I probably would not qualify for the payment anyway as that was an unusually good year for us.

            I think hospitalizations tell the better story, not reported cases

              They only update once per week. Won't have case data from this past week until Monday. The hospital system, considering we have Wake Forest Medical Center here, is not even close to being taxed as of yet. The chart also implies some long-term hospitalizations if you just go from a patient in-patient out rough calculation. Which is to be expected.

              The % positive of tests is 25% in the county, at the moment.

                Yeah so, new cases is not a barometer by any stretch anymore. The testing methodology has morphed. That chart is the one to watch to see if you have a problem. I don't know what your county's population is but 16 people in the hospital as of May 10 with the last death being on April 15, doesn't scream concern to me.

                  For sure. Unfortunately it's not always easy to get that data.

                  • I think McPherson county has had 26 cases with 18 full recoveries and no deaths since mid-March. Any hospitalizations for us would go to Wichita, Salina, or Hutch. I don’t know that we’ve had any.

                    W/O looking it up, Mac county has a population of about 28K, so we have a 1/1000 infection rate with half of those being a cluster in a group home.

                          It is interesting that Reno county reports 41 cases, and the state reports 51 cases for Reno.

                              No, your memory is good. Even the Reno county health department doesn’t understand why their numbers were increased by the state.
