I can see where they are coming from.  This chart shows the 21 day average of new cases (per 100,000).  They have been headed down for a while now.  (There is a worrisome leveling off there at the end though.) 



Personally, I think that they should wait until they are below the CDC’s definition of high incidence (less than 100 new cases per 100,000 over a two week period), as relaxing precautions may lead to a rebound.  But a rebound in one state may prevent one in other states.

But I think that in the long run "stupid" as well as their family members and contacts will pay.  If "stupid" is young they are unlikely to die but covid could give them life long health problems (and shorten their life).

There can be sort term economic benefit but I think the long term costs will be very high.

Had to laugh Texas Governor said 5million people out of 29million vaccinated....

We good to go ......

I'm not good at math ....

Is 5 million of 29 million 85%......of population.....

Even with bad math it's not 

 it's nowhere near "herd immunity"....

Joe is right Backward thinking.....

Don't blame the Neaderthals....they where alot smarter than your average Texan..... Governor...

Take care all 😷😉

Is not having any (major) rules in Texas not seen as a criminal act ? It will mean the dead of many people in Texas-most likely most in black/(afro-American) and hispanics, native Americans.

So here we are, more than a month later and Texas isn’t looking so stupid after all.

They leveled off a bit around the time they lifted restrictions, but then continued on down. Not sure what is working for them, but they seem to be doing okay.  Maybe because the weather is warmer (in general) in Texas, maybe because the variants haven’t reached them yet?  I hope that they can continue the downward trend.
