Cameron county 1265 new cases
Brownsville 559 new cases
Children 9 and younger 13 new cases
Children 10-19, 57 new cases
11 Processed as dying

Again I say processed because they are behind in the paperwork.  The real number is higher

REMI GARZA EXPLAINS WHY TEXAS CAN DELIVER THE RESULTS ON ELECTION NIGHT- and ADELA GARZA GOES ALL TRUMP BY CREATING A CONCERN THE ELECTION RETURNS CANNOT BE TRUSTED

I have no idea why Adela Garza is on the attack against Remi Garza, but the BV reported last week early voting was changed to start on the 13th of October.  Remi Garza was fully aware of this.  Why Adela Garza feels compelled to start a political war with an Elections Administrator who has done an amazing job along with his staff during the most difficult  times, tells me she is pulling a Trump and looking for an argument that the election results cannot be trusted.  Well as a  Republican it shocks no one Adela Garza would create a political war to put the election results into question.  Why I do not know, because as far as I can  tell she has no meaningful opponent and her win is guaranteed. 

REMI GARZA EXPLAINS HOW THE COUNT WORKS AND WHY AFTER THE POLLS CLOSE HE WILL HAVE THE EARLY VOTE AND MAIL BALLOT RESULTS

Texas law is better for these times.  In other states they cannot start to tabulate early voting or mail ballots until after the polls close.  Texas allows for the calculations before the polls close.

From Remi Garza:

"We can start verifying signatures before the close of early voting, but we cannot start processing the actual envelopes until early voting ends. In the past we haven't had to use a signature verification committee separate from the early voting ballot board‎ because the volume has not been that large. This November we might have to use it and start processing them sooner than usual. We usually can wait until the Monday before the election to start. I can see us starting earlier, maybe even Saturday. "

This is leadership and planning in advance to insure the results can be released early on election night.  What the hell is Adela's problem?

IF ADELA DECIDES TO KEEP UP THESE DIVISIVE ATTACKS A LA DONALD TRUMP, SHE MIGHT FIND PEOPLE FUNDING HER OPPONENT SO AS TO SEND HER ASS PACKING

Yes people it was under TSC Board President Adela Garza the removal of Robert W. Lee's name from the youth center was tabled.  Would you expect anything less from a Trump Republican?



OUR CHILDREN ARE THE GUINEA PIGS SO POLITICO CAN LOOK GOOD - THIS WILL NOT END WELL


"Georgia's largest school district has confirmed that around 260 employees have either tested positive for Covid-19 or have been exposed.
The Gwinnett County School District (GCPS) employees won't be returning to school just yet as districts across the country continue to adjust their back-to-school plans to prevent the spread of the virus.
The situation in Gwinnett is fluid, GCPS spokeswoman Sloan Roach told CNN in an email Sunday evening.
"As of last Thursday, we had approximately 260 employees who had been excluded from work due to a positive case or contact with a case," Roach said. "This number is fluid as we continue to have new reports and others who are returning to work," she added."

NEWSFLASH TEXAS:  More people died of Covid in Texas during July than any other state.  
With Governor Abbott's long list of exempt organizations from following the mandates, the spread is not going to stop.  
Trey Mendez and Eddie Treviño can institute orders now ending all of these exemptions.  They simply prefer to do nothing and then blame Abbott.
To protect a contract for a compadre they will allow the city or county to be sued. 
But to defend your right to life, they will not allow the city to be subjected to a suit by the governor.  Let him sue.  The PR against Abbott will be national - he will have no choice but to act.  But Trey Mendez and Eddie Treviño are cowards and will never stand to protect the people. 

THROUGH INTENTIONAL NEGLECT THE COB COMMISSION AN COUNTY COMMISSION HAVE SOUGHT TO KILL OUR SENIORS

In other places in the country what I am about to describe is already happening.  But Texas is about corporate, state, county and municipal welfare.  No one does anything unless the feds come in and give it to them.

There are hundreds of seniors in the county who know they are sick and cannot get tested.  If through a phone conference their doctor refers them for a Covid test, we then expect 80 years olds to sit in cars all day in hopes they will get tested before they run out.  We then expect them to wait up to 10 days for a result.  The end result is they are taken by ambulance to the hospital where they die.

WE NEED SPECIAL TESTING SITES FOR PEOPLE 60 AND OLDER

Other than greed and extreme incompetence, the city and county refuse to order the same day testing equipment. We need special testing centers for only seniors where they get same day results.

This is not about money.  Both the county and the city have the ability to delay contracts and projects to redirect money for Covid.  But that will interfere their commitments to their compadres.

This is so doable.  But the city commission and county commission are going to just allow the disaster facing seniors to continue.

DEEPER INTO THE ABYSS OF COVID

It believed these numbers are not real time.  Normally Cameron County does not release Sunday numbers, but the county now has outside help.

These numbers are believed to be somewhere between 2-4 weeks old and may be more than one day.

CAMERON COUNTY NEW POSITIVES 1439
BROWNSVILLE NEW POSITIVES 935
CHILDREN 9 AND UNDER 53
CHILDREN BETWEEN 10 AND 19 84
21 DEAD IN THE COUNTY WITH 10 DEAD IN BROWNSVILLE

Click for County Chart

Over the next couple of days the numbers are expected to get worse until the outside officials are able to get the paperwork caught up to be real time, and then it is believed the numbers will drop.

But no matter how you cut it, this is not good

A BOTTOM LINE HARD CORE FACT:

Trey Mendez and Eddie Treviño always had the legal authority to force facial coverings in the stores.  They  chose to keep the business community happy instead of protecting the people.  This resulted in massive spread.  The anti-maskers are equally responsible and those who are positive did it to themselves.  They need to take responsibility for their actions.

There are so many asymptomatic people out there this is not going to stop.  Yes it is true someone spreading the virus today, ,may not be still spreading it in three weeks but the people they gave it to will be spreading it.



DR. BIRX CALLS FOR FACIAL COVERINGS IN THE HOME

"To everybody who lives in a rural area, you are not immune or protected from this virus," Birx said. "If you're in multi-generational households, and there's an outbreak in your rural area or in your city, you need to really consider wearing a mask at home, assuming that you're positive, if you have individuals in your households with comorbidities."

IS THERE FRICTION BETWEEN THE COB AND COUNTY ON THE COUNT

Let me say first Trey Mendez is saying we are passed the worst of it based on the unreported numbers.  What this means based on what they expect to report during the next few days will show a drop in numbers once they get caught up.

I see it maybe in time but the death count for Brownsville being reported by Trey is so much higher than the county is reporting, it seems to me we are going to see a big jump.  As the BV reported the other day based on state numbers the NYT reported Cameron County was under reporting by about a 100 people. 

The county had plenty of notice that as a Latino community we were going to get hit hard.  The county did nothing to prepare.  It just let the paperwork pile up until social media called them out, and then they asked for help.

A leader would have started the hiring process for help months ago.

HERE IS THE RIFFED

When this started according to Trey he and Eddie Treviño agreed to start testing right away.  The city kept its commitment and started testing.  Because of this the city probably saved a lot of lives and got people into treatment early.

Eddie Treviño on the other hand reneged on the testing promise and left the county exposed.  So the question is how many people died because the county refused to start testing as it promised.

NOW WE HAVE TREY PUBLISHING THE REAL NUMBERS OF THE DEATHS WHILE  EDDIE TREVINO CONTINUES WITH HIS EXCUSE THEY WERE UNDERSTAFFED BECAUSE THEY FAILED TO PLAN

What we have is a good old fashion debate of who is more to blame.  Clearly the county failed us at every level.  The true numbers being put out by Trey are not making Treviño look good.

Now it is time for Trey to verify Eddie reneged on the testing promise. 


A NYT HEADLINE THAT SHOULD GIVE YOU PAUSE

"

Infections Swamp the U.S., Which Recorded 42% of All Its Coronavirus Cases in July

Thousands in Berlin protest Germany’s coronavirus measures. The virus is picking up speed in the Midwest. A summer camp in Georgia apologizes for hosting a retreat after hundreds who attended were infected."
NYT
People are not getting it.  Yesterday I posted a video of a Mississippi high school which just opened.  The kids have no facial coverings and are packed in side by  side.  Last night it was reported Mississippi has the highest per capita Covid rate in the U.S.  
So long as we have no national policy, the spread will continue.  There is no stopping this.

NEW NUMBERS COMPLETE DISASTER

Now County Judge Eddie Treviño wants you to know these numbers are not really real, they are catch up numbers now that the government sent workers  to help with the paperwork.  He got caught lying about the numbers and now calls it transparent to  report the back up numbers and then tells you not to worry because they are not the real time numbers. 

CAMERON COUNTY 1,106 NEW CASES
BROWNSVILLE 664 NEW CASES
56 CHILDREN AGE 9 OR YOUNGER
66 CHILDREN AGES 10-19
10 DEATHS PROCESSED 

Tomorrow, has Trey Mendez called out Eddie Treviño on this deception





MISSISSIPPI SCHOOLS OPEN WITH COVID POSITIVE CHILDREN

"A Mississippi high school student has tested positive for coronavirus during the first week of classes, according to the Corinth School District.
"We have had an initial test positive at Corinth High school," district officials said on Friday.  
After conducting contact tracing at the school, anyone who came in contact with the student was asked to quarantine at home for 14 days, according to social media posts from the district.
Students who were asked to quarantine "should continue working digitally in order to be counted present," the district said on social media."
 Click and watch the video on the top right.  Look at the high school students.  It is a death wish.  There is no control.  I give this school district two weeks before it closes.  I blame the parents.  Be parents and stop allowing your children to make life and death decisions. 


CAMERON COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT PROCESSING THE PAPERWORK ON THOSE YOU HAVE LOST TO COVID

For months commissioners court watched things get worse by the minute and did nothing.  They could not make money on hiring more staff, so it was not a priority.  The money is for projects where their  compadres can make money and there is no money in processing the passing of your loved ones.

It is not enough no county commissioner is ever re-elected, history must record their part in the death of so many, the loss of family businesses, and all the pain and suffering.  We cannot let it go.  We must insure they each live with what they did. They should not be allowed one happy day in what is left of their miserable lives.  The same goes for the city commissioners and mayor.

A HOUSTON DOCTOR PLEADS WITH YOU

"“You have no idea my frustration when I leave the hospital, I’m heading home, and then in one of these outdoor malls I see a hundred cars, a bunch of young guys or young women having a party — no face masks, no nothing. That kills me,” he said. “People are not listening.”
