One Terrible Picture – Worth Thousands of Words

New COVID-19 cases in the United States, daily, from early March

The graph above shows new COVID-19 cases daily, for the United States, up to date. It speaks for itself. (The graph is from the New York Times).

This is what happens to a country with inept criminal leadership, or lack of leadership, and a politicized pandemic where wearing masks is ‘unconstitutional’, where political leaders buckle under popular pressure and open the economy too soon – and then find they can’t close it again. Go back to Memorial Day weekend, Monday May 25 – and the crowds that gathered at beaches and parks – and you can see the second wave 14 days later.  And no, President Trump and Vice-President Pence, this is NOT because of increased testing! 

   So nations of the world! Look at this closely. If you make the mistakes the US has made, heaven forbid, this is what awaits you.

   As I write this, new cases in Israel are exploding. But very little is being done.
