Re: COVID-19 News and Discussions

the US is currently around 370000 deaths for the years. We are currently on a downside of a wave. I'm not sure how fall and winter will effect numbers though.

Re: COVID-19 News and Discussions

there is an all too common belief that 'finding the responsible party' is the same as solving the problem. It's the global politics equivalent of leaving three crackers at the bottom of the box so that the next person who gets crackers is the one responsible for the crackers being gone, and thus thr...
