Started class today talking to students about the virus and how it feels like it is over.

Then pointed out 100,000 Americans died in the last 30 days, turning it into the most deadly month in US history.

Definitely sobered up the class.

Happy Monday everyone!

Total number of Covid deaths in Trump's first month of office: 0.

Total number of Covid deaths in Biden's first month of office: 500,000.

Is it time to start impeachment against Joe Biden yet?

According to NYT I think they calculated we had, Hopkins says not quite there.

When you have to aggregate local reports because there's no central system, it's kind of hard to get a reliable exact tally.

Couple days late by the World O Meter which puts it as 511,302 as of right now.
Pretty sure it was 500K Saturday.

So, we didn't actually make it to 500K back on Feb 17th?

Fat, stupid, egotistical, and stubborn Americans? "It can't happen to me!" "Going to eat at Chuck-E-Cheese is my right!" "Masks are an affront to liberty!"

These people are dead because they and/or the people in their close orbits were selfish and careless.

Clearly this means that Joe Biden has mishandled the pandemic from the start, and should be removed form office immediately.

Johns Hopkins has the "official" numbers, and they always lag behind Worldometers.

I dont mean to sound like a nut but the tipping point that turned the public against the Vietnam war was basically when almost everyone in the country knew someone or knew of someone who had either been killed or wounded there. 60,000 Americans died there, 150,000 wounded.

How is it that I dont know of one person killed by COVID?

Well, that's because it's a conspiracy.   Duh!  Like the state of Vermont.   I mean, come on!  Have you actually ever met anyone from Vermont?  The place doesn't really exist.

And of course no one encouraged them to act in that way. No one with maximum authority and a nationwide voice.

Keep in mind almost half of this who died did so in a long term care facility.  I don't think there were a lot of field trips to Chuck-E-Cheese's from those places.

Also did anyone notice the good news? Cases have plummeted to a fraction of their post-holiday levels and the vaccine hasn't even really started to have an impact yet. The other side of this thing is starting to come into view.

We blew past that months ago, the official count is quite behind.
The "increase over average death rates" estimates put us at over 600,000 last I saw.
