The MSM says there are a “couple hundred” people at this Washington rally against the shutdown— ELIJAH (@ElijahSchaffer) April 19, 2020
Does this look like a couple hundred people to you?

– 37,000 people
Reported U.S. coronavirus deaths in 2020:
– 40,000 people and counting
Back in March, President Trump probably didn’t expect U.S. coronavirus deaths to exceed 2019 flu deaths in 41 days. https://t.co/bOI66JhPPb— Norbert Elekes (@NorbertElekes) April 19, 2020
It has been a bad day for the Daily Crackpot.
40,423 Americans have now died of coronavirus. As Donald Trump himself said last month, 37,000 Americans died from the flu in 2019 and nothing was shut down. This was over the course of an entire year and evenly distributed across the states and without a national lockdown.
Here are recent annual flu season deaths:
2018/2019 – 34,200 deaths
2017/2018 – 61,000 deaths
2016/2017 – 38,000 deaths
2015/2016 – 23,000 deaths
2014/2015 – 51,000 deaths
2013/2014 – 38,000 deaths
2012/2013 – 43,000 deaths
2011/2012 – 12,000 deaths
2010/2011 – 37,000 deaths
2009/2010 – 12,469 deaths (H1N1 swine flu)
The 2017/2018 flu season was the worst flu season in 40 years. The CDC estimates there were 61,000 deaths. It has taken only 41 days to get 2/3rds of the way there.
BTW, it takes coronavirus about three weeks from exposure and the onset of symptoms to kill and for cases to resolve. We had 128,578 cases on March 28. We’re currently sitting at 69,956 recoveries and 40,478 deaths. 37% of the people who were confirmed to have the virus in March are now dead.
We currently have 652,062 open cases from the last days of March and April. Forget about asymptomatic cases. How will those cases alone resolve? Not to mention the 25,000 to 30,000 new cases we are still adding a day? Where are we going to be a year out from now?
