I dont normally do Harris county, I do the 8 county Greater Houston Area.
I figured Id take a focused look at HC because I saw alot of "Fear Porn" about the virus today.
"In Todd we trust" but for those of you who dont, lets look at the numbers 1/8
YES we're seeing the same "Protest Effect" that Ive seen in almost every other area Ive looked at.
See how the model has strongly diverged in deaths, sticking to the pre-protest path, but the cumulative and new cases are rising as expected?
Again, 60+ yo people dont protest. 2/8
Also note that today is day 143 on the model.
We've crested this surge, but there is about 2-3 weeks left of this "hump".

While thats GOOD news, our hospitals are pretty full right now, leveraging (mostly) sustainable surge capacity, and at the peak, we're only 1/2 done. 3/8

.@HighTechAztec @SierraClub: Experiencing symptoms of exposure and high levels of distress.

I care because I live here, too. My mom lives in Deer Park. Friends who are pregnant & vulnerable. Concerned about cumulative impact. Scares me
