Heckuova Job, Donnie

We're #1 for new COVID cases.

If Florida was its own country, it would be #3 in the world. For sheer number of new cases, one won't find a non-shithole country until you get to #23, the UK, which is run by a baby-Trumper

For intensity, let's look at cases compared to the size of the population:

You don't find a non-tiny First-World country until you get to Sweden (#18), which decided to play it Trump's way and just let people die.

Well, at least California is going back into lockdown. Now what Florida, Texas, Arizona, and South Carolina are gonna do remains to be seen.
That is, if we get to see it, Fergus has ordered the states to stop sharing data with the CDC and instead send it to a database run by HHS. What it will look like when they have had their way with it also remains to be seen. Or not.

Details on the HHS data collection: like the Roach Motel, data comes in, doesn't go out.

Whhaaaaattt? But some posters said 'It's just the flu.' How dare you believe science rather than what Hannity, Brietbart, Qanon, and Limbaugh preach. Such a liberal you are.

Ca. is going back to lockdown, and the rethugs at least in my area are set to revolt. Bad enough, still seeing so many without a mask when out shopping, but the attitudes of these so-called "patriots" are just disgusting. They seriously would rather recall the Governor than wear a mask.
One guy asked for the "death rate" and when I mentioned 132,000 Americans were dead, whatever the rate, you would have thought I called him out to a debate.
They will deny and make light of the virus until they themselves are 6 feet under.
I for one am fed up with Virus deniers. How stupid can they be?
