Triple digit increase in new COVID-19 cases reported in Kansas City metro area Saturday..


Yeah baby, The yellow haired idiot in the white house sez its all over..

Wonder how long the people that went back to work over the last week will go back to staying at the house?


The Kansas City metropolitan had a triple digit increase in new coronavirus cases Saturday as 141 new cases of the virus and three more deaths were identified.

2. Record number of new COVID cases in South Carolina yesterday (WYFF-4 News)

My county, Greenville (in the upstate), leads the pack.

3. Is it more testing, or a genuine increase in spread? And why?

Often if there is a jump in cases reported:

1. Did a backlog of results get reported?

2. Was there a testing push involved?

If not, was there a food processing plant outbreak? And/or a prison outbreak?

If that's not the reason, community spread MAY be to blame.

4. I know

in Independence,MO last week you could get free testing and did not have to have symptoms. I got tested and was negative, which I expected since I have hardly been anywhere since March. They also had testing in other counties. It could be higher numbers due to more testing and allowing everyone one who wants, to be tested. Memorial Day weekend was not helpful. Also in KC many people while protesting are not wearing masks. That worries me many are not wearing masks.
