I like him and nearly always disagree with him.
But I've got to ask this question:  say the virus started in Missouri.  Does anyone here on this board believe we'd have been open about it?  Been transparent?  Honest?  Would our current government have done anything China didn't? 
.
If you're honest with yourself, it's a rhetorical question.
Absolutely.  The transparency is full blown in this country.  
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

We still have little testing in Iowa. Our governor closed schools early, but we have no stay-at-home order.

I have read the reason we call it "The Spanish Flu" is because Spain was not in WW I so they reported this dangerous strain of influenza.  It was other places first, but reported first by them, so folks thought it started there.

The countries at war did not want the news to be let out of the bag as it would harm the war effort.

It killed more than died in the war.

One "news program" I'd watch is "news from a year ago today".  Just show the top 3-4 stories of a year ago.  I am pretty sure most of the time we'd realize that was really over hyped as a thing.

The old, the poor, the unhealthy.......that's a majority of Alabama, no matter the race. 
Illinois may be 75% white, but Chicago certainly isn't, lol.  You're posting this stuff and I'm not seeing anything meaningful to glean from it.  You give the racial makeup of a state, when the virus is highest in urban areas. 
.
You see the Birmingham data, but Montgomery negates it.  And why do you want my opinion so much?  Here, OAM, here's a scatter of data that doesn't point towards anything, whattaya think? 
.
I don't think much of anything of it.
But you asked him a question and he's tried to answer it after much research.
Did you not really want to know the answer?

OK, so I just completely disinfected this place. This thread is now open for virus discussion, quarantine ideas, and general news posting.

I don't see an answer from the research.  It's unfortunate, but that's often the case.  If I'm missing something, I'd love to be shown what it is.

Fixed it.
I have trouble believing anyone could be living through what we are living through in this country right now and post something like “this country values the economy above all else.”
