The higher Hispanic covid rate in SM County. Is there a breakout in the MP figures for Bel Haven residents? When populations have to segregate in certain areas to afford housing etc, it almost always has resulted in more crowded living. This has been going on for centuries. Also one would suspect covid numbers are low for the group since a larger % of the population is unable to afford or obtain health care. And a greater % needs to keep working to support family because many of the jobs don't have the work at home option or even sick leave, so there is greater chance of infection from work.
Also now that construction has started up again will the figures increase?
Does the State or county have programs in place to address this covid inequality issue?

By the way editor how about a new topic choice: Covid- 19.

I can't say I'm surprised. I drive through the North Fair Oaks area fairly regularly and I routinely see street vendors with no face mask, no gloves and not practicing social distancing. And their clientele aren't either. I often wondered driving by these scenes if we would see higher rates of infection in that community. Now we know.

Protestors. I can't believe not a single word blames the protestors. So quick to blame the people doing their best to live a normal life and quick to throw stone at business owners.

Stop the protesting then it stops the spread. It got worse the very moment people protested.

Bay Area REsidents:

perhaps no one is blaming protesters because they're not to blame.

But don't let facts get in the way of your opinion.

Maybe more people would wear masks if someone would do and publish a Randomized Control Trial of mask wearing to prove how well masks work.
