1. COVID19 HASN’T EVEN GOTTEN STARTED YET! Only 5% have been infected in the worst hit countries. We are so far off from herd immunity a 2ND WAVE IS INEVITABLE IF WE RUSH TO REOPEN.
2. GET THE KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL (so every household in the U.S. can get infected, not to mention the impact on kids’ and teachers’ health), THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY IS IN GOOD SHAPE (bookings down 98% down)…and the list goes on.
“Most of us “know” about 300 to 400 people in our daily lives. Who would fly if planes killed someone you know 10-12 times a year? Who would let their family drive if it regularly kills 1 in 400? Who would grocery shop if buying avocados killed one of your friends each month? Remember those NYC stats—1 in 400—aren’t anywhere close to 1 in 400 “infected.” That’s just people who happened to be in NYC in March and April.”
That’s one way to stop a pandemic. I wonder how many states are pulling a version of the same trick?
Coming soon to a Wisconsin bar or Midwest Cracker Barrel near you!

110,000 BY EARLY JUNE. S. Korea is projected to have 270…total.
I know, because I read it. It literally walks you step by step through nearly the exact scenario we’ve experienced. McConnell has admitted that he was incorrect, which calls into question exactly how out of touch he is (as the Senate majority leader!) with our pandemic efforts.
Would it surprise you to learn that the annual influenza death numbers are “estimated?” Not real counts? It came as a surprise to me. The CDC doesn’t actually know how many people die from the flu every year. They guess based on the fractional data that is reported. The COVID19 fatality numbers are ACTUAL, reported deaths.
The Czech Republic made masks their NUMBER ONE Covid19 strategy from the beginning. Not testing or lockdowns. They have 293 deaths/27 per million population. Austria has 693 deaths/70 per million population. WE HAVE 86,912 deaths/263 per million population.
CAN WE AT LEAST DO SOMETHING RIGHT AS A NATION TO FIGHT THIS?
