What an astonishing number...

Yes... it is hitting the red states now... the republican states... where trump supporters who have their noses stuck so far up trump's ass that they can't see the world for what it is... refuse to wear masks, as a "Constitutional right".

These GOP scheisskopf's in Texas insisted on having an indoor rally of 6,000 people, mask free, even though the speakers were only going to be there on video so that they wouldn't become infected. The mayor of Houston finally put a stop to this nonsense by ordering a cancellation.

The GOP has become a party of fools, cretins, and idiots. That the US numbers keep exploding is a direct result of trump's lack of action and his idiot followers believing this has everything to do with "rights" and nothing to do with medical intervention.

It's no wonder their ignorance, "rights" and freedom of speech had left them to this state.

I have UK and American friends who genuinely believe the whole thing is an over-rated issue and a conspiracy.

They need to stop testing NOW!

That way, numbers will be kept down...

Gotta love Trump logic. God forbid if it was ever revealed to be a Russian virus...

Technically he is correct....numbers will drop, but not the cases. It's the ostrich approach to management.

Some really interesting data around on death counts in the USA.

"Two thirds of the deaths reported during the last week occurred more than four weeks ago. 6,617 deaths were reported this week, but only 302 of them actually happened during the last week. Real death rates (i.e., deaths by the weeks they actually happened) are declining, not increasing. What's happening is that the media is reporting the deaths reported in the past week as though they occurred in the past week. But in reality it takes many weeks for all of the death reports—including both confirmed and suspected cases—to come in."
