Premature ejaculation:
WRAL INVESTIGATES,   Some states that have reopened during pandemic aren't seeing spike in coronavirus infections.  (WRAL, 5/13/2020)
Neighboring South Carolina started reopening retailers April 20. That week, the state tallied more than 1,100 new infections. With each subsequent week, the number of new cases has dropped, down to 990 projected cases this week.

Dear WRAL,

It's time for another investigation.  The number of weekly cases has increased from 989 to 1,129 to 1,360 to 1,999 to 2,813 since this article was written.  And then came July.

Best,

Retiring Guy
