    In Wisconsin, the number of new cases (based on the count of positive tests) continues to increase. The 14-day moving average number of new cases per day in the state is now 333.57, the highest value ever. In my opinion, the availability of testing has improved, so we are getting a more accurate idea the spread of COVID-19 in this state.

    16% if the positive test results is associated with a hospitalization. The death rate (all ages) as of 5/19/20 is 4%.

    Thus, on any given day, about 333 people in WI are diagnosed with COVID-19, of which 53 are admitted to hospital.

    The prognosis is better for younger patients.
    Of those cases >90 years old, 31% die.
    80-89 ... 19% die.
    70-79 ... 15% die.
    60-69 ... 5% die.
    50-59 ... 2% die.
    40-49 ... 1% die.

    The numbers may be slightly different in other states or countries. But these are the facts for the state where I live. Being in the 70-79 age group, I intend to take all reasonable precautions...

    I have trilliums in a shady part of my front yard. They grow where it is cold in winter. They are resilient!

    "to life".

    As I see it, that restaurant being open was a clear case of money mattering more than human life.....it's just too risky. As to the diners, they really should have known better.....there is no excuse for their lack of concern for their fellow human beings. Though I will flip the script and admit I'm just as annoyed at lower incone bus riders not wearing a mask - they have no excuse, either, but for different reasons. Rob

    Our governor must be caving to pressure. Casinos were supposed to open during phases 3 or 4. Now they are opening phase two June 4. We are going to call the governorís office to complain. We donít need a bunch of tourists coming.

    NH and Maine get a lot of tourist revenue from MA. It will be interesting to see how they balance the dueling messages of "Massholes stay home with your Covid germs" and "Come spend you vacation dollars here!"

    The dog and I came to Hermann today and as I drove through our little touristy downtown is quite crowded and I donít see people wearing masks. Now that doesnít mean that theyíre standing in enclosed spaces with no masks. It just means thatís what I observed in the outdoors as they mill around between winery to winery. DH who has been here a couple of days reports the wine trolleys have been going past our house regularly, so that means a pretty big crowd in town.

    I did notice that at least the big new brewery/restaurant has not reopened yet. I hope they are not dead in the water. But given my incredibly narrow personal focus ( old buildings) Iím so happy they renovated that building from top to bottom, saving the building and preserving it for some time.

    In tourist season in WI, I sometimes hear about "Illinoyances" driving north on US 51, US 53, or US 45 (or WI 13). The flipside of that condescension is genuine hospitality. Fresh air to share. (But please don't feed the bear.)
