Good luck, South Dakota.

"Wearing a face covering will help us to keep Texas open for business," Mr Abbott said, announcing the order.

After an initial warning, those who refuse will face a fine up to $250.

On July 1, the European Union reopened its borders to 15 non-EU countries that have brought COVID-19 under control. The United States was not among them. This population-adjusted graph of new infections shows why:

The Trump Administration Is Waiving the Public’s Right to Affordable Coronavirus Treatments

I know it sounds like a lot of money (because it is), but I'd bet it's about the same cost as a couple hours (or less) in the ER, or fifteen minutes in ICU, or a few minutes on a ventilator.

It seems like hospitals would jump at the chance to reduce expenses by reducing a patient's time in treatment.

Yes, pharmaceuticals are the cheapest form of healthcare. drug adherence is the best way to keep most people out of the ER/hospital.
Contrary to the headline, aggregate drug price inflation has only been about 2-3%, due in large part that over 80% of scripts are now generics, and reimbursement rate for drugs has been under pressure.
The issue is more to do with the convoluted supply chain, and how rebates, discounts flow from manufacturer to insured.

MAR 6 - "You have to be calm.  It'll go away"

APR 29 - "It's going to go away, this is going to go away"

JUN 15 - "At some point this stuff goes away and it's going away"

JUN 17 - "It's fading away.  It's going to fade away".

JUN 18 - "And it is dying out.  The numbers are starting to get very good"

JUL 1 - “And I think we are going to be very good with the coronavirus,”...  “I think that at some point, that it’s going to sort of just disappear, I hope.”

Victorian Premier warns entire state could go back into lockdown as coronavirus cases continue to rise



"The message is really clear if you want to see these lockdowns eased … follow the rules, use common sense, don't pretend it's over."

And that's with 73 new cases yesterday. Can't imaging how US states are going to manage to get a handle on their trends with so many people ignoring the science.

Sweden launches inquiry into coronavirus handling
The commission of inquiry will be composed of medical experts, ethicists and economists and will be led by Mats Melin, a former president of Sweden’s supreme administrative court. The government had wanted it to include politicians although that proposal was dropped.

Dr. Anthony Fauci says U.S. coronavirus outbreak is ‘going to be very disturbing,’ could top 100,000 new cases a day
