"No distractions from mass murder. If we time the beginning of Trump's gross incompetence and dereliction of duty to mid-March, we're 6 months into our epidemic and 200,000 deaths.

There are more deaths every 3 days for the last 6 months than were murdered on 9/11 at the hands of Bin Laden - every 3 days another 9/11 occurs to men and women. All because a narcissistic man-child was afraid that talking about and planning for the virus could hurt his reelection chances. And we know that it is deliberately undercounted in the Republican states.

200,000 deaths - one death every second for over 2 days - 56 straight hours of death, one for every single second.

If Trump as captain of the ship SS America sailed into a storm knowingly instead of turning away, failed to furl his sails or close his hatches once in the middle of storm, went to his cabin in the middle of the storm to watch TV and lost his ship and his passengers, he would be held accountable and charged with manslaughter. If the average cruise ship holds 3,000 guests, Trump has captained 67 cruise ships full of passengers to their painful and lonely deaths. Victims of the virus could not even hold their loved ones, one final time.

If a body bag's thickness with a body is one foot, the stack of body bags laid one on top of another would be 38 miles high, well past the height that a weather balloon can reach in our atmosphere.

Sen. Tillis says Trump will win because people will remember how they felt in February. At this point, I don't remember February, let alone know how I felt.

Trump will be condemned for all time for his gross dereliction of duty as the Commander-in-Chief that directly led to 200,000 deaths and counting. He is the greatest mass murderer in American history based solely on his gross incompetence."

Now they've change the numbers to 9734 LT Care cases, and 1,395 LT Care deaths. The original reported numbers much have been an error.

Did anyone notice that the "Outbreaks" tab says Long Term Care cases now total 16,998, versus 9,685 yesterday? That's an increase of about 7,300 in a day.

Worse, the deaths in long term care rose by 961 today (2354 versus 1393). LT Care deaths are now 87% of total deaths.
