Island covid-19 spike

It is ominous development when an island state reports a peaking number of virus cases at this stage of the pandemic. Some regions of the world will suffer worse than Italy and the Brazil, not because of anti-vax sentiment and activism. Many more thousands are being sentenced by business-friendly politicians to death. They have been in a hurry to be “open for business” from the time the first measures against the virus were taken.

Hawaii has just reported upwards of 500 new cases, a record for the island state. If an isolated island can experience such a downturn where do crowded and connected jurisdictions like Los Angeles or Montreal stand?

Woe to those who think opening up for business with mere lipservice regard for virus control statistics is a humane policy.
