    Coronavirus cases continued to spread in parts of the American south and west in the past week as experts warn that packed protests could exacerbate the pandemic.

    The early parts of the American coronavirus outbreak struck hardest in the dense metropolitan areas on the coasts, such as New York, New Jersey, Boston, and California. But the last few weeks have seen wider spread in inland states, including Arkansas, Texas and Arizona.

    In Arkansas on Tuesday, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said there were 375 new positive coronavirus tests, the highest single-day number of new community cases. There are currently more people hospitalized with Covid-19 there than at any prior point.

    They are also testing more and more. Especially since thousands have been arrested...they will be tested in the jails, with pressure from medical and custody staff, and even from other inmates--it's not so easy to refuse the test as it is in the free world.

    Yes, the prison count is going up in Arkansas, but the numbers also are higher for those not in prison as well. Opening up has increased cases in many of those states that have been open for at least several weeks. If the reproduction rate is above 1, then the number of new infections is going to gain steam. Even at a reproduction rate of 1.2 new cases for every infection, in just 6 weeks the number of new daily infections will be doubled. (Assumes each new case will result in 1.2 new cases every 2 weeks).
