Once again the governor has shown that he’s totally clueless about COVID-19 and his statistics. Someone needs to explain to him how this whole thing works.
If you look at the curves in the state’s own information you will see that hospitalizations and deaths have remained pretty constant for months. For instance, Lewis County hasn’t had a death since the three we had at the very beginning. However, the number of cases has, in fact, increased considerably. How can this be? Mostly, it’s because testing has increased dramatically, and with the riots and CHOP the increase in cases is not surprising.
But the biggest question of all is why is he clamping down on everybody over COVID-19, but is remarkably silent, along with the Seattle mayor, about CHOP and the riots?
