BREAKING: L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announces he is authorizing the city to shut off water and power to any houses or businesses that are hosting any parties or unauthorized large gatherings. It will begin Friday night, and LAPD will respond, then contact DWP to cut it off

So they'll still show up and they can't wash their hands.Not sure you could pay someone enough to stand outside a house and try it
A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it

I saw that UTee. Why have massive parties at a time like this??
Because people are selfish and inconsiderate jackasses. 

Those people exist everywhere, of course, but Los Angeles is kinda their natural habitat.

Well I certainly wouldn't.  And I don't agree with the actions of those that would.

But, wow... shutting off power and water to private residences and businesses seems a bit of an overreach.  And when I say "a bit" I mean "unbelievably massive" overreach.

This is the stuff that gives credence to the fears on the far right.

Gives credence to the fears of those of us in the middle too, but that's another thread.

Don't really hear much about stuff like that in Chicago right now. Maybe it's just not reported, but I doubt that. I know there were a few early on in this thing, and I think the police did a good job of stamping them out.

I wish they would tell us how many tests were done, but this is alarming anyway.

For the second time in a week, Illinois officials reported a new daily count of coronavirus cases that hovered just under 2,000.

The Illinois Department of Public Health on Thursday reported 1,953 new known cases of COVID-19 in the state over the prior 24 hours, and 21 additional deaths of people with the highly contagious illness. Today’s number is the highest daily count of cases since the end of May.

Those numbers raise the statewide totals to 188,424 known cases and 7,594 deaths since the pandemic began earlier this year. The seven-day statewide average positivity rate stands at 4%. It was 2.6% a month earlier.

Anything in particular driving it?  Here in Texico, the increases were pretty clearly linked to opening up of risky indoor spaces like bars, combined with a public that began relaxing on distancing and mask-wearing.  Is it similar in Illinois?

More than 1 million Wisconsin residents — or roughly one in six — have now been tested for COVID-19, according to the state health department.

Of those, 57,779 have tested positive, including 839 new cases reported Thursday by the Department of Health Services — constituting 4.7% of 18,000 people newly tested.

Thursday marked the second time in a week that positivity was below 5% after not being so low since July 7.

The state's seven-day average of new cases also fell to its lowest level since July 15 (810), even though Thursday's increase would have been a single-day record as recently as July 10.


Eight more people were said to have died fighting the virus, for a total of 978.

I think it's the bars being open. Mask-wearing is big in Illinois, as it is mandatory.

It is also now mandated in Wisconsin, which I'm fine with. I wish it would have not had to have been mandated, but.. people do silly things and need to be told to do what's right.

Or face the consequences such as having their electricity and water turned off... right, Fuhrer?

Heh, I'm O+ as well.  And I'm a Euro-mutt of English, Scottish, Irish, Scots-Irish, and some French way back there.  But no German that I know of.

I think the hope is that with an ultra-aggressive response up front, that we'll contain the spread until we get into warmer weather and hopefully this thing naturally tapers off.

I'm surprised though. In my 41 years on the planet, I've never seen anything like this. Which is why (like a lot of people) I have no frame of reference whether this is an underreaction, appropriate response, or an overreaction.
From March, a pretty good take on it I think.

Except the warmer weather hope.

It's possible that the warmer weather IS helping... which would be a pretty dire omen indeed, for the Fall and Winter.
