great coronavirus visualizations

Not ecology per se, but I thought I’d share this link to some amazing aerosol transmission visualizations, showing relative risks of the coronavirus & the impact of mitigation strategies such as masks, air circulation, and distancing.

As you may have read, the situation throughout Indiana has deteriorated. A statewide record number of new cases was set yesterday, at 3,649. The positivity rate is back up to 14%, the highest level since early May, indicating “a that more testing should probably be done—and it suggests that it is not a good time to relax restrictions aimed at reducing coronavirus transmission” (Johns Hopskins). Likewise, our local numbers in Marshall County are also at a new all-time high, with a positivity rate above 20%.

God bless our front-line workers in the healthcare field right now, as the regional COVID-19 census is more than double the late April peak.

I don’t really have much to add, other than this photo of a recent quick trip to Turkey Run State Park. Stay safe, and stay in touch.

    The visualization really speaks. A picture IS worth a thousand words.
    Yes, prayer and concern for our frontline healthcare workers – like Sr. Veronica who goes off each day with courage and returns with the utmost cautionary steps so that she does not in any way cause any spread of the virus.
