One out of every 1,000 Americans has died of Covid.

From what IHME projects, we can look forward to 2 out of every 1,000 Americans dead from this disease.
More if we don't get our shit together.

One last number .. We are well and truly fucked.
"More than 84.5 million Americans are planning on traveling during the Christmas season as COVID-19 continues to spread across the country. The forthcoming holiday season will likely eclipse Thanksgiving travel, during which more than 50 million holiday travelers passed through TSA checkpoints, despite warnings from the CDC.
Those warnings still apply.
“Travel may increase your chance of spreading and getting COVID-19," the CDC’s updated statement said on Wednesday. “CDC continues to recommend postponing travel and staying home, as this is the best way to protect yourself and others this year.”

I posted this on FB, and got told by 3 people that they don't trust the mainstream media as slavishly as I do... that the numbers are inflated to keep Americans cowed and under the thumb of government...that it's only old people... that the economy is more important.

Dumbfucks. (incidentally... not MY FB friends... friends of friends.)
