I suppose thus far we've done relatively well in Texas.

Texas 29 Million Population
Thus far less than 2000 Covid deaths
2018 - Texas Flu Deaths = 9,500

Totally agree. Earlier spring break than many states and the quick shutdown of schools soon afterwards to go along with the travel restrictions and stay at home orders contained the spread.

Hopefully as things have opened up, we only see a slight uptick in cases rather than significant growth. As long as school is out and a lot of people are still working from home, the risk of exponential spread is hopefully somewhat mitigated.

I'll wait and see epidemiological data to see how many people die this year compared to the last several years. In Florida on average ~950 people die of pneumonia. This year ~5,000 have died from pneumonia and ~900 from COVID. Something doesn't look right to me.

Last numbers I saw, Greenland had no COVID deaths. I guess its because no one lives there and no one travels there.

Michigan State plans on fall classes, so Michigan may follow.
