We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

Georgia surpassed 100,000 reported coronavirus cases, becoming the ninth state to pass the mark.

In California, the number of hospitalizations across the state were at an all-time high and the virus positivity rate jumped more than 2% in Los Angeles.
Seeing the positivity rates in these "hot spots" is astounding.

Gee. If only we had time to expand health care capacity in densely populated areas.

I'm glad to hear this. At least we have some degree of knowledge on how to combat this thing.

So we're ticking down on the time left to extend the $600 unemployment.

Seems like a no-brainer to me

Was just looking at the model Missouri uses for hospitalization rates and it has our rate of infection for Northwest Missouri listed at .59%. That's a pretty good number, yes?

Please note this does not include the KC area.

It’s actually incentivizing many to not find work who normally would. As employers struggle to hire people you will hear more and more about this, especially if it’s extended. The media keeps highlighting the high unemployment rate, but the truth is many are hiring and many refuse to take the jobs. Even when those jobs pay $15 plus per hour. It’s not a no brainer at all. They need to extend unemployment benefits but incentivize those who also go back to work and make below a certain threshold.

Except clearly we aren't ready for the workforce to go back in many states and that point is pure speculation

32% of all households in the US did not make their mortgage or rent payment on time for July. They really aren't going to have any choice but to extend unemployment and/or moratoriums on evictions.

The incentive is to not get sick like 3,029,647 other people have and die like 131,857 other people have.

Tell that to the more than 900,000 people that are not allowed to work in Hollywood due to C-19.

What a stupid post.

That $600 a week won't buy jack shit in a lot of places in this country.
