No, it is not a “second wave” of COVID-19, it is still the first wave. Even Dr. Fauci has said that (along with his panic-incitement rhetoric, of course). The states that are having a “spike” are experiencing their higher numbers for the first time, like Florida, Texas and Arizona. The news media are extremely dishonest and/or ignorant and they are either unwittingly or intentionally fear-mongering to incite more panic and hysteria like they were doing in March through May.
This new panic, by the way, started shortly after Donald Trump had his big rally in Tulsa. (But there has been no panic and fear regarding gatherings involving Marxist Lives Matter in Minneapolis, New York and Washington state. Hmm.
The increase in positive “cases” of COVID-19 is because of a large increase in testing in general. But there hasn’t been a spike in deaths. The case fatality rate is even lower now than the .1% that is more realistically told by non-hysterical media.
Target Liberty has a good post on all this. Wenzel shows three charts showing the increase in testing. He also shows some tweets and quotes from others who make good points, including former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson, who tweets: “Remember yesterday, when I published an email asking about possible double-counting of cases in Arizona? And then the state said no, it wasn’t double-counting. Must just be coincidence that the number of #Covid hospitalizations fell 300 and ventilator use plunged 25% overnight.” And Daniil Gorbatenko: “‘Health officials in Texas are logging every single COVID-19-positive hospital patient in the state as a COVID-19 hospitalization, even if the patients themselves are admitted seeking treatment for something other than the coronavirus.’,” who retweets a tweet by Keith: “So apparently our hospitals in Texas aren’t in nearly the doom and gloom position we are being told. Who knew?” who links to an article on Just the News: Texas hospital CEO: COVID inpatient count ‘misinterpreted,’ level of alarm ‘unwarranted’.
Why is Texas Gov. Abbott going backwards to the alarmist and fascist orders of businesses or gatherings to do this or that detailed behavior when it is and has always been unnecessary? And the same thing with Florida Gov. Ron Duh Santis, who is doing the same unnecessary fascist things.
