Curious as to where you live. I get hospital bed numbers every day where I live. Three different hospital systems and each day they give updates. I wouldn't ever trust a statewide bed count because of the number of people who get moved in an out of ICU's for whatever reason throughout the day. By the time the state got reports from all the hospitals, assimilated it and put out a press release, the numbers would have already changed. I'm perfectly fine knowing a regional number of 2-3 surrounding counties.To me it means we are approaching daily positive case numbers of New York State without a New York City. Our Governor refuses to give out daily information on current hospital bed utilization but I fear it is very high. My wife and I are 69, and we are very careful, but everyday see continued examples of stupidity, not observing social distancing walking into stores without a mask and championing the gotta die of something crowd that still smokes cigarettes. Once this settles into my age bracket, and it will, deaths will go up. My only hope is we know more about treatment now than we did in New York. To keep this in perspective about sports, I see no way teams from Florida, Arizona and Texas can travel this fall. My wife and I are headed to NY tomorrow we will have to quarantine for 2 weeks. If we have to then athletes should too, the virus doesn't know the difference.
