    meanwhile, in France…

    With virus cases rising anew, France is struggling to administer enough tests to keep up with demand. One reason: Many testing labs are closed so that their staff can take summer vacation, just as signs of a second wave are building.

      Also, California became the 3rd state with over 10,000 deaths.

      NJ has done 2.25 million tests or over 25% of its population.

          A false positive, to the surprise of absolutely no one here in Ohio. I fully expected the more rigorous tests at Ohio State medical center to come back negative, and both did. Dewine isnt exactly a bar guy, and is the poster boy for social distancing and masks.

          Those quick tests are a joke. What's amazing is they are using them to screen people who will be close to the president. If there's false positives you can bet there have been or will be false negatives.

          There are no strings on me

                      Show's you what a monster the 1918 pandemic was. If my math is correct (always a question) approximately 66 out of every 1,000 people in the US died in the 1918 pandemic; so far the 2020 version has killed about 5 out of every 1,000 people. Of course this last number is going to rise but it's a long long way from 1918.

                        It was bad....Dad who was 8 in 1918 talked about how amazing it was his family all survived in Galesburg, Illinois.

                          Coronavirus Vaccine Tracker

                          Researchers around the world are developing more than 165 vaccines against the coronavirus, and 28 vaccines are in human trials. Vaccines typically require years of research and testing before reaching the clinic, but scientists are racing to produce a safe and effective vaccine by next year.

                            India has a higher seven-day moving average, and it's increasing. Mexico's curve is almost flat. Both are likely to pass 100k.

                              And that estimate is low - I've seen as high as 1.5 million in the USA. And world-wide estimates vary from 25-50 million. World population then just under 2 billion. Also US population in 1957-58 was about 1/2 what it is now.
