Re: UIL Released Message
I think we are going to find that the Health orders will have as much weight as the county judge orders. In other words, they won't once the Governor declares them void like he did earlier this year with rogue judges. And while it isn't popular to say, if we don't see a spike in deaths, (which if you look at the trends we won't), then I think that override is more likely. I might be wrong but if you follow the data maybe not. The people that said lockdowns were useless because this runs a cycle regardless may have been correct. We locked down in the South before our peak. Northeast did not. We are now seeing a peak when we left our homes just like many experts predicted. We are not seeing anywhere near the deaths that the NE saw which will play into decisions.
I'm sure DessertJazz will jump on with a list of statistics on why I'm wrong and Sigh/Exercise with why I'm a worthless human being, but the spikes currently in the South are exactly what I saw experts predict back in April would happen when the lockdowns ended. In other words, we delayed the inevitable but saved lives by having better therapeutics, knowledge, and hospital preparedness but we didn't stop the spread because there is no stopping the spread.
