Worried About Houston

Texas is heading down a dangerous path, local leaders warn as coronavirus cases and hospitalizations surge

Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, predicted over the weekend that Houston is on the brink of a disaster, based on the latest trends in increasing numbers.  “My observations if this trajectory persists: 1) Houston would become the worst affected city in the US, maybe rival what we’re seeing now in Brazil 2) The masks = good 1st step but simply won’t be enough 3) We would need to proceed to red alert,” Hotez tweeted.

Do not wait for a politician to tell you to:

  • Wear a mask.
  • Avoid crowds (especially younger non-mask wearing crowds where infections are spiking upwards).
  • Pay attention to your local Covid-19 statistics and act accordingly.  Limit your excursions to trips for essentials or shelter in place.
  • Practice physical (social) distancing.
  • Stock your pantry.
