The news is out: [More than 4,000 Americans died of COVID-19 on Thursday, according to a New York Times tracker, and at least 280,292 new cases were recorded. In the past week, the country has averaged 237,635 cases a day.
Dr. Robert Redfield, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, had warned in December that the U.S. would suffer more deaths every day for the following two to three months than the almost 3,000 who died in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, or the 2,400 who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The U.S. continues to lead the world by cases, at 21.6 million, or more than double the next worst tally, India with 10.4 million, and by deaths, at 364,448, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University. With 4% of the world’s population, the U.S. accounts for about 20% of reported fatalities.]
Still nothing is being done against the coronavirus. In a few weeks, even with the rushed vaccine, we will see the result from countless of terrorists storming the Capitol with no masks or social distancing during the attack on democracy.
