The news is out: [July 16 (Reuters) – The United States reported at least 70,000 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, a record daily increase for the seventh time this month, according to a Reuters tally.
U.S. deaths are also rising and have recently reached the highest levels since early June, led by Arizona, California, Florida and Texas, according to the tally.
More than half of all states – 30 out of 50 – have reported record one-day increases in cases this month. Infections are rising in almost all states, based on a Reuters analysis of cases the past two week compared with the prior two weeks.]
Imagine if the real numbers were available to the American public. Ah, they still wouldn’t care. But wait! I predicted August would be a peak month for cases and deaths.
