Two people close to a coworker died of Covid-19. This article pretty much sums things up rather nicely

Here’s a sad and strange truth. Trump’s America has given up on Coronavirus.
Take a look at the charts above.
Three of them show what’s called a “sigmoid” curve — S-shaped, basically. Something grows exponentially — and then it stops.
Or in this case, it is stopped.
One of them shows a…line, steadily racing upwards. That’s America — amidst an historic pandemic.
Coronavirus was never stopped in America the way it was in most of the rest of the rich world. The sigmoid shape we’d expect from a successful response to a virus — or any other deadly calamity that threatened to just go on claiming lives — never emerged.
And yet America’s already ”reopening” — I put it in quotes because America never had the kind of serious lockdown that say Europe or New Zealand did.
The result? About half of American states are already seeing new rises in Coronavirus deaths. That’s going to extend across the country, because, well, a virus doesn’t really care about state lines.
This, my friends, is a disaster without modern parallel. But that’s what you’d expect from a failed state led by a lunatic demagogue, whose government and institutions don’t really function — except to police people brutally — right?

The Rich Elect; The Poor Vote.
