Global total is 2 million infected, 128k dead and 500k recovered.
We now have a dedicated tracker for the US that breaks details down to county level.
3 million tested in the U.S. with 600k confirmed cases, 25k dead and 43k recovered. New York is the hardest hit and the epicenter in the U.S. right now.
In Washington State things continue to level off while we all stay home as much as we can. We are all wearing masks if we visit a shop for any reason.
Here are the details for Pierce County where we live:
We show a 4.82% fatality rate right now. But it’s “just a bad flu” right?
Washington, Oregon and California are grouping together as a team to decide when things should slowly open back up for business. It is impressive to see States work together like this in a time where it is easy to panic.
Stimulus checks are hitting bank accounts today.
Meanwhile the President of the United States is halting funding to the World Health Organization during a pandemic claiming they have ‘mismanaged and covering up’ things related to the outbreak. The President is also tweeting about how his favorite movie is Mutiny On the Bounty as a threat to Governors who don’t agree with him. The President also feels that voting by mail is now a bad thing for everyone, except him, because it doesn’t work in his favor. This is all within the past two or three days.
Remember. This is the President who said this was nothing. It would all go away soon and it was just a bad flu. Meanwhile in February he spent time golfing, at Trump rallies and speaking at CPC. He spent almost half of the month ignoring this while the rest of the world warned of the upcoming trouble.
The President is not capable of criticism in any way. I have friends from India and Italy telling me they watch what is happening here and they are absolutely gobsmacked at how our country is being run, and they don’t understand why someone so unstable is running the show.
This is not stability when we need it most.
