Those who run the Sacred Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo are ignoring the obvious risks in not canceling this event. Why?
Three weeks of daily gatherings of 50 to 70,000 people will dramatically increase the chances Of a widespread Coronavirus outbreak; Not just in Houston but statewide. People come from all over Texas for the Rodeo and they may go home with more than they bargained for. The monetary decision to not cancel is completely irresponsible and Houston and Texas will likely pay for it in the weeks to come.
