  1. Can the EHR vendors or other help figure out if the recents spikes in COVID cases can be attributed to protests? Media seems to want to say Memorial Day was a cause that that was May 25th this year and seems too long ago to be attributed to these spikes.

    • If protests were a significant vector to spread COVID, I would expect Minnesota to be much worse than where they are.

  2. Also, seems like Texas hospitals were last week saying they were being overrun so the Gov shut down electives in all the major urban areas only to have the hospitals come on record saying they are not being overrun. Does anyone know what is really going on with this new wave as far as severity? Is it a younger crowd being hospitalized or are younger people just transmitting it more often in their homes to older parents and such?
