The States without Mask Mandates Have the Lowest COVID Problems

Over the last two months, the red and blue states have begun diverging on how they are treating the coronavirus and as the red states loosen their restrictions, they are the ones seeing the virus subside fastest.

The media, of course, and the Democrat Party want to treat the virus as if we are still in the midst of “14 days to flatten the curve” from a year ago. But we are not. The virus has been on the wane for months and the red states realize this. Not that the blue states understand this fact.

Texas, for instance, has seen amazing progress back to normalcy.

An update to last week’s post about case counts declining in the Lone Star state. Not only have cases continued to fall in Texas since then, the seven-day average is now the lowest it’s been since June 18, 2020 according to Worldometer. Yesterday the state was averaging just 3,263 daily confirmed infections. On March 10, the day Greg Abbott’s order lifting Texas’s mask mandate took effect, it was averaging 4,895.

Average daily deaths are also the lowest they’ve been since November — and deaths lag cases by several weeks so they might well continue to fall throughout April.

But, Texas is far from the only state seeing fantastic progress.

Last week, Scott Morefield posted a series of tweets showing how well some of these states are doing:

“Sure, we could see some spikes here and there (generally it’s geographic and seasonal), but thanks to vaccines and natural immunity, deaths are declining and should continue to do so. If people aren’t dying & hospitals aren’t being overrun, why are we worried about cases anyway,” Morfield concluded.
