Indeed. The three most southwestern counties in Missouri, of which I live in the northern most, has seen a HUGE spike in the last few weeks. Owing mostly to poultry processing plants.First wave = large cities and coasts, second wave = towns and “flyover country”?
I'm sure there are plenty of insurers who will be rewriting their travel cover policies as a result of this. Cover will certainly get more expensive.If you fly, chance of getting trapped in a lock down and will insurance cover that or if you get sick?
Too many people, too much connected, using too many resources with too little wisdom and looking too little far ahead.
It's "only" a return of H1N1, it's not jumped from pigs to humans yet, and there's a vaccine, so calm down and get a shot.
Michigan is one of three states in which U.S. servicemen and women are barred from traveling to and from at this time due to increases in COVID-19 cases and/or positive tests.
The Midwest state joins California and Florida as the only other states that haven’t been given green status for personnel travel, according to a June 29 memo from the U.S. Department of Defense.
In order for a state to be cleared of DoD travel restrictions, it must remove its shelter-in-place orders or other travel restrictions, report a 14-day downward trajectory of flu-like and COVID-19-like symptoms, and report a 14-day downward trajectory of new COVID-19 cases or positive tests.
A spokesperson for the department said the three states not included on the list had not met the three-part criteria, as of Monday. The list is updated weekly.
But according to data from Johns Hopkins, several states have recently reported larger increases in new cases per 100,000 people per day than Michigan, including Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, South Carolina and Texas. Those states are considered green locations, meaning service personnel can travel freely there.
Michigan has seen a recent uptick in the number of new cases per day, with the seven-day moving average reaching 320 this week -- two weeks after the state was seeing 155 new cases per day. Since the start of the pandemic, Michigan has reported 63,870 known cases of COVID-19 and 5,947 deaths linked to the infectious respiratory illness.
