Rural Infections Break Record for Fourth Week. Total of Rural Cases Breaks 1 Million.
Covid-19 spread in rural America at a record-breaking pace again last week, adding 160 counties to the red-zone list and bringing the total number of rural Americans who have tested positive for the coronavirus to more than 1 million.
Nearly 70% of the nation’s 1,976 rural (nonmetropolitan) counties are now in the red zone, a term used by the White House Coronavirus Task Force to designate localities where the spread of the virus is out of control. Red-zone counties have a rate of at least 100 new infections per 100,000 in population.
How do you reach the people who don’t believe in science and do believe in Prznint Stupid when he lies to their faces?
This is a catastrophe.
