new surge starting of Covid-19 along with approaching flu season or just another upswing like the one during summer because of stupidity

It is frustrating to me these days. It is astonishing to me how unaware some insist on being about the health risks of Covid-19. I have continued to avoid crowds, and although I go to restaurants, I try to stay at least 6 feet from everybody, with the possible exception of the waiter stuff unless I have a mask fully in place. Again, the one exception is the waiter staff of the restaurant which is hard, but even them I try to keep at my table as short a time as possible. Easy for me to do, since I always know what I want to go to any particular restaurant.

However, two things happened today, whether by coincidence or another sign that the idiot in the White House is screwing with our nation again. The CDC page that shows every day's new cases and new deaths is down today. Now I have checked it about 5 times and it has been down all afternoon so far. At the very same time, in trying to get my figures for today, I checked around and found out that per the New York Times, one of the more honest publications in my opinion, the cases are up severely today at 75,000 plus.

The first issue is why did the CDC site pick today to go down? Now, I will admit that the evidence is out either way. It could be temporary and later today or early tomorrow, it may be up and running and showing the right numbers for today. But, I have to say it is interesting, to say the least. Call me paranoid if you like, but the orange menace has lied and played down, etc too many times, and even threatened the CDC and tried to overrule their reporting enough for me to be suspicious whenever a new “glitch” hits.

The second issue, really a question, is related to the apparently sudden upsurge…the second one since March when this debacle started. We were told early on that it was very likely to be a cyclical thing and that the summer heat would cause it to lie almost dormant but that the cooler weather would usher in another round of it. Yet, in mid-summer, we had a huge uptick.

The second uptick was because naive and selfish persons mostly in red states decided to believe trump and go out without masks and without any form of social distancing. He contributed to this horror by having his self-serving rallies resume until that blew up in his face and he had to withdraw somewhat. Of course, he then said he had it, and downplayed it even though we all know that he got more care than a normal patient is ever likely to get having the government insurance plan and the fact that he is seen as the boss. We were still told not to worry.

So now, the daily new infections have gone up more, according to the New York Times report, than at any time except the very beginning. So, my question is this the new cooler spell of fall causing another bout of Covid-19 surging across the country, or is it just another uptick due to the naive and idiocy of the trump administrations dealing with this pandemic.

At least, I went and voted against the man in the White House, in case anybody has any questions, I voted for Biden and would have voted for Donald Duck or Woody Woodpecker before I would have voted for the criminal behind the Resolute Desk, but sure hope and pray I don’t end up sick because of it.

But either way, I will NEVER regret voting for the Blue team in order to get some decency back into the administration of this country. I would have preferred to be voting for Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders, but Biden will do!!! Oh, and I guess for a few days anyway till I see how the numbers go, I am isolating back in the house as much as possible, and if I eat restaurant food it will be drive-through.
