Parallax View - part the seventh

Another week's up, so here are today's numbers:
25 to 99 - 787
 5 to 24 - 730
      <5 - 381

1,000 and more continues to creep up, now 233. In particular if you show only 1,000 and 100 to 999, you can see the creep throughout the Red South. Even without the density of NYC or Chicago (LA is sprawl, so is more like the South; wait... it is south), the Red South is turning redder by the day. Soon, they'll get really needy and beg to The Very Unstable Lunatic, 'Save us, Dear Leader!!'. And, of course, The Very Unstable Lunatic and Moscow Mitch will send Billions and Billions of dollars their way.

Further, the mountain West is bigly joining the party, even with Nebraska, et al, refusing to report full information. Kind of like Putin's Russia, you betcha. The only areas reporting no activity are the empty parts of Montana and Utah. I guess that's all there is of God's Protected Country. Or, may be, there's only empty prairie, bare mountains, and some cattle?

Total infected counties is now 2,937, up from last week's 2,918. Still ain't many counties left untouched; we're a few tens away from the total in about 12 weeks. And much of what's recently getting sucked into infection are counties with rural healthcare, a marginal resource in normal times. As Mikey (24 April) said, "If you look at the trends today, I think by Memorial Day Weekend we will largely have this coronavirus epidemic behind us." Mikey likes it! Innumerate and science denying is not the smartest way to deal with a science problem.
