Cincinnati: Good News, Bad News…

First, the bad news. As more and more people stop wearing masks and stop physical distancing, as of June 24 nationwide infection has returned to levels not seen since the peak back in April.

The State of Ohio still remains short of reaching testing and tracing targets, and new cases and hospitalizations are increasing, notably in Hamilton County – possibly spill-over from the massive surge in the Sunbelt combined with indolence of the part of the locals.

The good news. Cincinnati is better off than most metros as deaths are decreasing. For now.  

From personal observation of downtown, the Banks, OTR, Clifton and Newport, it is worrisome to see that many people out-and-about have discarded masks and distancing. We were starting to see some good numbers in mid-June – let’s hope this does not reverse progress.
