1,321 Americans died today of COVID-19.
CURRENT CASE FATALITY RATE BY COUNTRY:
South Korea: 1.7%
The case fatality rate of the common flu is less than 0.1%. Even if there are millions of undiagnosed asymptomatic cases of coronavirus, the common flu is nowhere close to as deadly as coronavirus. 5,711 Americans don’t die in a week from the common flu. Ever.
COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the United States. It has become the deadliest infectious disease in the world. It took only two weeks.
This is the first time in like 15 years that I have laughed at something on The Daily Show. I needed a laugh. It has been a brutal day. We received our shipment of 5,000 rotted masks from the National Strategic Stockpile. We are governed by people who can’t tell the difference between SARS and the flu. It is pitiful to watch but there is where we are at with the mainstream Right.
