How many of those thousand are actually sick? How many hospitalized? How many dead? My state of Maine has nearly 1200 cases (confirmed)! only 37 are in hospitals and nearly 700 fully recovered. What is the goal, not to have anyone sick? That's ridiculous.

Interstate 40, a MAJOR east-west artery, runs through Gallup, NM. The governor is going to close that puppy and disrupt the shipment of thousands of tons of critical cargo across the country? Besides, Gallup isn't the problem. It's the Navajo Nation with its widespread COVID-19 infections for which Gallup is a major trading center that's the problem. And owing to Indian sovereignty, the State of New Mexico has limited jurisdiction on the Rez.

The majority of AZ coronavirus cases/deaths are in the NE section of the state that shares the border with NM ... both state areas are Indian reservations where obesity and diabetes run rampant. Traffic to and from the reservations should be restricted, not I-40 or Gallup city streets.

The Wuhan Virus is extremely contagious but not particularly lethal. We should be focused on the rate of hospitalizations of people testing positive for Wuhan and the rate of fatalities actually caused by Wuham. Throw out all the cases where someone died with Wuhan rather than because of Wuhan. Up to 95% of folks who have been randomly tested and came up positive for Wuhan showed no symptoms. Wuhan is a problem for those over 70 and those with co-morbidities. Our best defense is to build up the herd immunity ala Sweden and keep the vulnerable ones safe until the virus recedes for lack of new hosts.

#14, I am beginning to doubt even the "extremely contagious" claim. On a very tightly packed ship with 5,000 people on board, only 14% got the disease after days of exposure with no PPE in very tight quarters like 4 high bunks, narrow passageways, and eating in tight cafeteria style settings.

Luhan Grisham suffer from the same syndrome that plagues Michael Bloomberg....Napoleon syndrome, only the female version. Unfortunately for New Mexican residents like myself, she has the family name of Lujan which another reason why she'll be reelected in this very blue state. Unless a strong Hispanic Republican challenges her. The only one I can think of is John Sanchez, the former Lt Governor under Susana Martinez.

After the Gov. of Louisiana moved the goalposts again, to the middle of May, he came out at a news conference and stated that he 'really' didn't say that all small non-essential businesses had to close. He's an accomplished democrat and he lies. I think it's CYA. He just finished telling the State that individual Parishes and cities can enact stronger measures than the state but not more lenient than the state, and then this.

From #18's link: "There’s a big spike in positive cases today, but the upside is that there is a lot more testing being conducted and that’s why we’re seeing high numbers." Is that why the Democrats are chanting "testing, testing, testing"? So they have an excuse to pull stunts like this?

How can they legally do this? And how the heck can they tell them they can only have 2 people maximum per car?? This is entirely UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Parents can't drive with their children in the car? Or a couple cannot take grandma to the doctor, even if 2 people are needed to move the wheelchair or help her walk while another carries things? It is just insane!

SANTA FE - Democrats in the state Senate say they still don't have enough votes to repeal an old, unenforceable abortion ban that remains in New Mexico law. They believe a failed effort in the 2019 legislative session — when a handful of conservative Democrats joined Republicans to block it — could see the same results in this year's 30-day session. But with the U.S. Supreme Court poised to hear a Louisiana case that is expected to test the landmark 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, Senate Democrats and Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham say they are prepared to hold a special legislative session to protect abortion rights

The United States should prepare for another 18 to 24 months of “significant COVID-19 activity” — which likely won’t end until about 60 to 70 percent of the population has been infected, recover and develop herd immunity, experts reveal in a new report.

Despite polls showing that he leads President Trump in key states and in the country overall, there remains something seriously missing and not credible in the putative presidential nomination of Joe Biden. The polls are never accurate with Trump, and there is both a reticence by his supporters to identify themselves and some sampling errors by the main polling organizations because of the unusually high numbers of people this president draws to the polls in his support who are not otherwise frequent voters. The real test of these matters is how the people vote, and the country saw Joe Biden come in fourth in Iowa and fifth in New Hampshire, and

American universities once attracted students from around the world. Prestige places like Harvard and Caltech did so, but it also happened at good state schools like the University of Illinois, University of Texas and even my own alma mater, the University of Colorado. The scientific education was second to none. Even outside of science, a broad-based humanities program thrived. As an engineering student at CU, my required curriculum included two full years of “Great Books” where we studied Socrates, Homer, Virgil, Chaucer and Milton. But then some interrelated things happened.
