If Harris County continues on the same new case trajectory as it is on at present, Houston could become the worst affected city in the U.S., according to nationally recognized infectious disease expert, Dr. Peter Hotez of the Baylor College of Medicine.
In a recent tweet, he argued that Houston’s situation could rival Brazil’s:
I’ve been tracking the data on the Texas Medical Center’s website. The situation is quickly becoming severe:

… leading to higher ICU occupancy, which is …

Remember when competency existed in government? Yeah, we’re not there anymore.
Today’s updates show the trend is getting worse.
The daily growth rate is rising, as is ...
… the number of new cases.
