Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a good week and you are all safe and well. Here’s how things are going in Alabama.
Confirmed cases of COVID-19 now number 101,496 with another 4,061 classified as probable. From last week, that’s 8,094 more people who have tested positive. Deaths have increased to 1,821 which means 167 more Alabamians have lost their lives. And finally, hospitalizations now number 12,456.
There’s A LOT of confusion regarding the numbers right now. Apparently there have been independent labs performing tests and not reporting the results to the department of health. They also keep saying there’s been a backlog of cases, which isn’t helping the confusion. So, I kind of feel like we’re all at this hold your breath and wait and see moment. More schools will be opening between now and after Labor Day. Football season is just starting. Mask wearing is still a battle. My friend Pete over at https://beetleypete.com currently has a historical serial called Vera’s Life posting everyday. It started in 1924 London, and we’re now up to WWII and the Blitz. Looking at what people willingly sacrificed to survive makes me look at anti-maskers who scream about their lives. Their liberty. Their rights. Pete’s story is a reminder of what true sacrifice is.
For this week’s positivity, meet young Anthony Madu and hear his inspirational story.
Well, that’s it for me. How are you all doing?
