Agree; these spikes correlate pretty neatly to reopening activity like restaurant bookings (FL and TX). I do think we’ll see additional acceleration from protests in the coming weeks (also agree that the cause is just and that there’s never a good time to protest).

WHAT!!! Protests started May 26th. It is June 15th. These spikes EXACTLY align to the protests. To blame this on anything else is scape-goating.

Smdh. People are wearing masks at PROTESTS. Karen and Chad are getting their Karen haircuts, going to the bar, and going out to eat without wearing masks. That’s what’s causing spikes. Y’all just refuse to believe it.

Could be. I just wanted to make sure my hair looked good for all the Instagram stories I posted of myself protesting amongst a crowd of thousands. 🤷‍♀️

No too soon, latency effect of states reopening too quickly. But we will soon see an even more pronounced spike from the protests IMO.

D1 let's see, only time will tell. But most of the protests began in late May/early June and incubation period is 5-14 days so we would've seen some preliminary spikes in these areas already. And fortunately in many places where mass protests occured, most people were wearing masks and there was widespread testing available (e.g., in SF)

To be clear, by “riots” you actually mean the protests against police brutality and systemic racism, right? Also, no.

The locations that are spiking right now correlate to rushed reopenings, not protests. This isn’t to say we won’t still see spikes in places like NYC but the protest effects still aren’t known. NYC has seen zero uptick so far.

Was hilarious to watch the media blaming it mainly on Memorial Day BBQs and people going to bars... without mentioning the hundreds of thousands of protestors. It’s like even putting any culpability on protests/riots invites damnation in this cancel culture.

DOM - most would argue the dems are trying to do the same thing, win power.

It looks like a lot of the places with the biggest protests and riots (Minnesota, Illinois, New York, DC) and leaders relatively strict about staying at home (image is of Chicago mayor Lightfoot) are doing much better than places with smaller protests but leaders who didn't take covid seriously (Texas, Florida). Not a perfect matchup, but one that makes protest driven spread questionable at best. In fact, it almost looks like states with larger urban black populations (as a result of the great migration) are doing BETTER in terms of covid than states that don't fit this description.
