Texas Reopening Pauses: Current Case Explosion

Pandemic diseases spread at a rate determined by actions of their hosts, actual and potential.  Texans mixing more resulted in an increase in positive cases in June.  I noticed the change in late May when shopping.  Few people wore a face mask as stores became increasingly crowded.

The City of San Angelo reported 31 new cases today, bringing the total to 342.  It was 95 before Memorial Day weekend.  Lots of events loom.  How many will be super spreader events?

Update 6-29-20:  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says the coronavirus "has taken a very swift and very dangerous turn in Texas over just the past few weeks."

Update 6-30-20:  Texas had 6,975 positive cases today, a new record high. The exponential growth theory remains in play.

Update 7-17-20:  Texas new cases have been over 10,000 five times in the last week
