In our above clip, CNN’s Don Lemon frankly assesses Donald J. Trump’s 04/27/20 coronavirus task force briefing.
To add in my two cent’s worth… while witnessing the fake prez boast, “We’ve launched the most ambitious testing effort, likewise, on Earth. The United States has now conducted more than 5.4 million tests…” I have crunched out his numbers. 5.4 out of a U.S. population of 328.2 million souls amounts to a paltry percentage of 1.65!
Turning our attention, now to the bottom of the CNN screen, we must update those 2-days-old, sobering statistics…
MORE THAN 1,030,000 U.S. CORONAVIRUS CASES;
MORE THAN 58,964 AMERICANS HAVE DIED
In a scant 2 MONTHS, America’s Coronavirus death toll easily surpassed the 58,220 Americans who, for 2 DECADES (from 1955 to 1975), fought and died during the entire Vietnam War. Granted, this post is a bit America-centric, but I’ve only gone that route to statistically point out how much more dangerous Coronavirus really is.
It’s a bleak illustration, such as this, which, hopefully, will convince any rare individuals, out there, who still do not take the pandemic seriously enough… who still doubt the value of life saving social distancing / self-quarantining tactics, to rethink such a self-centered stance. Truth is, humanity’s very survival depends on everyone accepting this life or death matter from a WE not ME perspective.
STAY SAFE! STAY HOME! STAY HEALTHY!
