HHS, Miami leaders blame COVID-19 surge on irresponsible behavior

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar pointed to irresponsible behavior for fueling the upsurge in cases, mainly in the South and West.

When asked if some states may have reopened their economies too soon, Azar said Americans must take individual responsibility for stopping the virus from spreading, including practicing social distancing and wearing masks.
In Florida, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez apportioned blame to "younger people basically disregarding the rules" for an upsurge of cases.
"It's not coincidental that two weeks after demonstrations happen here in Miami-Dade County, a lot by young people, that we've had this spike," Gimenez told CNN on Monday.

Saying the increase is all bars or churches or family gatherings or protests would be dumb, IMO. But ignoring protests as a significant contributor to the increases would be dumber still. You can't deal with something you refuse to acknowledge and understand.
