No, this state isn’t having a bad resurgence of Covid — it’s only in nursing homes, with nursing home and medical staff and palliative care. The numbers of actual deaths are actually less than the flu, we don’t know if Covid was actually the cause of death and THERE IS NO FLU TESTING — only Covid testing.  My 97-y-o grandfather died a few months ago with a list of health problems too long to name and we still can’t get an answer as to whether he was classified as a Covid death.
