19.5 million cases in the US. 338k dead. 3000 per day are dying.

Globally 1.7 dead.

Vaccinations have started and in the United States things are a mess. People are ‘jumping the line’ to get ahead of front line workers.

In Los Angeles the hospitals are turning away ambulances because they have no capacity due to COVID cases. Locally medical workers are concerned that the hospitals here are close to capacity.

The virus is mutating. The new and improved version spreads even faster now.

The mask/science vs open the businesses and schools debate rages on. People assault each other over this.

I am concerned we still don’t know enough about the long term effects of this virus and feel the vaccines were rushed. I am by no means an anti-vaxx person, I just want to see some long term study before getting jabbed myself.

President Trump is only concerned with conspiracy about losing the election right now. There was a massive bombing in Nashville on Christmas morning and he has not mentioned this at all.

The world is a mess.

Since June 11th, we have jumped from 7 million global cases to over 23 million.

The United States jumped from 2 Million cases to 6 Million. From 112k dead to just under 200k.

Globally areas that had halted the spread are now getting new hot spot areas of infection.

Sweden, who attempted herd immunity is now requiring masks for everyone and they have the highest death rate per infection. They tried.

The US handling of this is still a mixed bag and now there is a push for herd immunity here as well. The statistics have been a mess, with the CDC data being pushed into a new system. Every day there is drama and confusion, which is what they want.

Locally I was able to get a free test quickly. Fill paperwork, drive up, get swab and leave. Took three days to get results and we were pleased with that process.

Elections are coming up in November and the US is a mess. Turmoil everywhere.

BLM protests continue and there are nightly issues between ‘Patriots’ and BLM/Protest folks. A white 17 year old with an assault style rife crossed state lines, to defend property he didn’t own. He was chased, killed someone. Ran from the scene right past the police as people pointed him out as having shot someone dead. He was chased and attacked, shot and killed another person and wounded one more. He is being hailed as a hero on the right and a murderer on the left.

He was not old enough to carry that weapon. He crossed state lines with that weapon. He defended property that was not his. He is responsible for all of those things and being charged with murder.

The President is defending him.

I’m terrified at what November brings. No matter who we elect there will be turmoil and the prospect of more violence and I am very afraid.
