Outside Of St. Louis And Kansas City, Coronavirus Cases Rise In Missouri

The St. Louis region has seen ups and downs recently in its coronavirus case numbers, but elsewhere in the state the number of cases is rising quickly.

Nine counties in Missouri have had case counts increase by more than 20% last week, according to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

St. Clair and Linn counties, both in western Missouri, sit at the top of the list with increases of 59% and 40%, respectively.

Dr. Alex Garza, head of the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force, said Friday that some rural hospitals are starting to become concerned about having enough room for COVID-19 patients.

1. Yes. Sad indeed. My sister, in SW Missouri has been mentioning that the CV has been (and

obviously still is) raging across SW Missouri. They all thought that they were free and clear of the scourges taking hold in the cities (they don't have much respect for those in the 'big' cities, I know this for a fact, being that I got relatives all over the state). I wonder how they think now, being that they thought that they would be unharmed/untouched by the CV?

The hospitals are filling up too, I get kind of mad for it may impact big city hospitals being that a lot of rural hospitals have been closed over the years too, so once again, the big cities will get blamed for some reason or other, for these others' shortcoming in not observing CV distancing rules, masks, etc. My sister in Neosho MO complained that a lot of people in SW Missouri weren't wearing masks, or socially distancing themselves, and she' mad as a result. I don't blame her. At least she and her family are wearing masks, etc.

2. Yeah, SW Missouri

is certainly "interesting" in the viewpoints that are generally held in the area. It is a real shame that folks don't seem to have the common decency to try to look out for one another.
