The Daily Dread - Tracking the spread, 5/21/20

Problems. Somebody in the MSNBC control room is asleep at the switch. The same graphic - "States With Most Cases" - has been frozen on there since at least the 7am hour. So to get any notion of how the numbers are tracking today, I have to switch to CNN.

1. For comparison...

I'm using CNN stats for today, so far, because on MSNBC, they've been frozen on the "States with Most Cases" graphic since 7:01 this morning. I called and left a message... we'll have to see if anybody notices.

At 7:01am

Confirmed cases worldwide - 5,034,458

4. Some days it's below 1000 and I hope, then it jumps again.

The MAGAts are killing people.

And at 7:01pm, I checked back with MSNBC, and Lawrence O'Connell showed a graphic showing domestic data at the top of his show. Interesting to see the contrast. I'd used CNN figures all day, because MSNBC's revolving set of four graphics was frozen on "States With Most Cases", and stayed that way for hours. Frustrating! I gave up and went to CNN for the rest of the day. I have no idea how high the worldwide numbers are as of this evening. Hopefully MSNBC straightened things out so I can go back to more consistent-source tracking in the morning.

So here it is...
At 7:01pm
Confirmed cases US - 1,581,622
Deaths US - 95,003 - a new milestone marked.
