No worries, defva, stay safe
Well, I figured that since I have been able to go to grocery stores, hospitals, Home Depots, nursery's, barber shop, etc etc etc and the same people are still working there and our cases are going down, why not. Look, I didn't cause this bug to spread and I will not let it keep me from doing things I want or am allowed to do. For me, I will be at the gym in a few hours and then the park for some PT and fresh air.
States accused of manipulating COVID-19 statistics to make situation look better
In Georgia, one of the earliest states to ease up on lockdowns and assure the public it was safe to go out again, the Department of Public Health published a graph around May 11 that purportedly showed new COVID-19 cases declining over time in the most severely affected counties. The entries, however, were not arranged in chronological order but in descending order.
Georgia state Rep. Jasmine Clark, a Democrat with a doctorate in microbiology, called the graph a "prime example of malfeasance," adding: "Science matters, and data manipulation is not only dangerous, but leads to distrust in our institutions." Democratic state Rep. Scott Holcomb likewise called the department's presentations "purposely misleading."
