China and Europe have recovered numbers. I think it's just too soon to list people as recovered in the U.S.

The Hopkins website has begun to show recoveries for the US - but only at the national level

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

On a serious note, the estimated peak for Florida is looking pretty ugly.

Do you have a link to this estimate?

Oops. Thought I linked it. This one is based upon peak hospital resources...US at 4/15 while Florida is 5/3(!).

FTU has an article up on projected deaths by August:

Curry issues "Safer At Home" order, beginning 12:01 AM Friday
https://www.news4jax.com/news/local/2020/04/01/mayor-curry-issuing-safer-at-home-order-for-jacksonville/

Quote
Even now, not everyone is doing their part to flatten the curve,” the mayor said. “So for this downward trend to continue, we must remain vigilant and do more to protect our city. To that end, effective Friday at 12:01 a.m., I’m issuing a new safer-at-home executive order mandating that citizens stay in their homes except for critical and essential needs.”

Essential businesses will continue to operate, Curry said. These include health care providers, grocery stores, gas stations, media organizations, banks and financial institutions and assisted-living facilities, among others.

“While we are confident that citizens will be much safer at home in the coming weeks, I want to make it clear that this executive order does not restrict people’s ability to go outside to take a walk or ride a bike," the mayor said. “This only prevents residents from traveling to businesses deemed nonessential.”

Agree with Curry here. I'll say again: My opinion of him has done a complete 180 over the last few months. I still think the JEA fiasco needs to be investigates and his downtown Khanville philosophy is, well, odd. But, he's handled this thing as well as I think he could have.

DeSantis has taken a step back IMO. He was slow to respond, seemed to catch up and do a little better, then recently has seemed to be timid, waiting on Trump's lead. This isn't the time to wait on someone else.

Trump, well, has been as I expected him to be. Pence has done a better job IMO (never saw that coming). Thank god Trump seems to be listening to Fauci and Birx.

^ No, there are some business that will have to close - retail stores that don't sell one of the many "essential" things.  Now, could a clothing store add "cell phone chargers" or "handi-wipes" and become "essential"?  Or, scarves or bandanas as "CDC Covid Masks"?

Evidently, your sense of humor was all ready shut down.

Baffling that bookstores, for example, are deemed nonessential, but you can still walk into a gun store and get an AK-47.

This isn't Jacksonville-specific, seems to be happening all over the country.

I had hoped the last part of my comment expressed some humor. Apparently not.  Guess I am just not in your league.   :P

I'm pretty effing certain I can figure out on my own what businesses are "essential" and which ones are  not.

This is the scariest part of this BS.  Hope YOUR business is not on the list.....   Boy Jeff Bezos (and the NRA) gotta be loving this.

Taking a poll: a liquor store IS or IS NOT essential?
