3. We could be @ 250,000 dead by Sept. or election day.

Trump and Kushner knew of C-19 and the coming pandemic in November of 2019
and what did they do? They looked for ways to make money on the pandemic in-
stead of getting America and the world ready for it.

6. Make money and diminish the Federal Government's role in every way possible....

into any aspect of American life AND discredit everything government does do. That's been a consistent pattern.

I swear, I think Republicans would privatize the courts if they could get away with it. As their next best thing, they just load them up with hard right-wing Rethug appointees.

4. Like the flu. When they count say flu season in 2019, that would be Jan-Dec, correct?

So that would include fall numbers. So for a year say it is high at 20k. We are working four months and will have easily 115k. But, that would include numbers this fall. If it does kick up a second wave, which is a strong possibility, that will increase the number significantly.

5. Case numbers are very under estimated

The number of deaths are also probably under-reported by as much as 30%.

the actual number of cases is more likely to be more than 100 times the number of deaths - I would estimate 11 million to 15 million.
