It is becoming increasingly clear that we are at the beginning of a fourth wave. And yet Massachusetts appears to be barrelling ahead with its crazypants reopening scheme.

We had 2200 new cases today, up from about 1200 a couple of weeks ago. It's probably too soon to know a trend, but it's a pretty grim number. I don't understand why the reopening plan is continuing to move ahead when the numbers are getting worse and worse.
