1. I don't see how this gets any better unless wearing a mask in public is made mandatory.

If we are seeing new numbers like this now, what will it be like when flu season hits?

2. The good news is that the 703 is more than likely not asymptomatic people.

They have no reason to get checked.

5. Damn shame that Arkansas is surrounded by (so to speak)...

Tough to stop a contagion when it is as though the entire state is surrounded by Brazil.
Uruguay' northern land border is Brazil where the contagion rages.
Uruguay's first case was reported just days after Arkansas.
The two places are close in area, population and density.
Uruguay reports 850 cases total confirmed (Arkansas does more testing), 20 currently sick with 4 in ICU, 24 dead.
Masks and distancing do work.
Recent daily new cases have been (starting most recent):
1,0,1,0,1,0,0,0,1,1,0,0,11
