Did you see this?
And, in Hawaii, Gov. David Ige is considering another stay-at-home order for Oahu and may delay the start of a program that allows tourists to visit as COVID-19 cases spiked in the state. On Thursday, the state reported a new daily record of 355 infections and a total of 40 deaths.
Hello? Hawaii, in case you are both cartographically, and historically challenged, is part of the United States!!!
The data from Johns Hopkins: The U.S. has 5.2 million confirmed infections and 167,000 deaths. Worldwide, there have been 760,000 deaths and more than 20.9 million cases, according to John Hopkins University data.
Here is where you can go, with restrictions of some sort:
Albania (no thanks)
The Maldives (if I was a diver)
Mexico (about as bad as here)
Turkey (why not?)
Croatia, where I want to go in October, is open if I can show a negative Covid test within 48 hours of landing. Both Ireland the UK require 14 day isolation upon arrival, which makes no economic sense for a “vacation” of sorts. Why fly for 10 hours, then stay quarantined in a hotel with meals delivered? And maybe a few pints of Guinness?
The blame for this sits squarely on the shidiot Orange man in the White House. I blame him for this, the unemployment, the deaths, the shattered lives, and the divisiveness with regard to race, culture, and human decency.
The problem would have been easily solved back in March or April by shutting down the country. He could deploy his militia to enforce wearing of masks and social distancing. Instead, he chose to deprive Americans of their Bill of Rights.
Sidebar: I read the Mary Trump book. It is most depressing, a totally dysfunctional family, and just plain SAD!!!!
