The Daily Dread - Tracking the spread, 5/17/20

All times Pacific, source: Johns Hopkins/NBC News

Maybe it's just the weekend... but this is the first such data I've seen all day.

At 2:18pm
Confirmed cases US - 1,489,567
Deaths US - 90,140

We're at NINETY-THOUSAND deaths. Actually somewhat beyond it by now.

NINETY-THOUSAND.

It's almost unimaginable. But not to 90-thousand-PLUS loved ones who are now in mourning and can't even hug each other.

2. And when the tallying is done, we'll be shown north of 130,000 deaths as of today

The "excess death" rate becomes a very good statistic with higher numbers.

Even tho this administration doesn't want to label COVID-19 deaths as such these will be counted.

Trump's Pandemic of 2019.

Let's hope it's the last disaster he causes.
