Resurgence of COVID-19 in Texas

Increasing numbers of Houston residents have reportedly been diagnosed with COVID-19 after attending protests against the death of George Floyd.

Large protests began in the city days after the death of Houston native Floyd, an unarmed black man who died while police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25. Texas has been experiencing a surge of new COVID-19 cases. Harris County, which encompasses Houston, has been adding hundreds of new cases each day to the more than 17,000 total confirmed cases reported as of Monday.

The article also blames reopening of bars which makes sense.  It's hard to send or receive a pickup line from six feet away, or while wearing a mask: "I'm the most bountiful grr you've ever screened?"

Remember: COVID-19 is a major public health menace if you want to work or go out to eat.  But if you are out to protest, burn and loot, not so much.
