COVID-19 NewsDate: 05/31/2019
Cases (= infected individuals) have been skyrocketing, and hospitals are filling up. Over 130,000 Americans are currently hospitalized with COVID. Almost 400,000 Americans have died from this virus in just 10 1/2 months. 150,000 more are expected to die in just the next 2 months. Please take this seriously. Since July, the mortality rate has held steady at 1.7% across all ages...meaning that 1 in 60 persons testing positive can expect to die within 2-6 weeks. This is not a hoax, a "flu", an exaggeration, a political "hit job". Please wear your mask in public, and avoid gatherings of more than 6 people. And please maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others when in public. Thank you.
