Yesterday it was 3,708 deaths. It's already 4,341 today. 2 weeks ago it was just 817 deaths. Want to guess what it's going to be 2 weeks from now?
And that's with the world trying to fight it. Imagine how many would be dying if we didn't take action.
The seasonal flu killed 40,000 in the US last year. That's an average of 109.58 per day. The coronavirus killed over 700 in the US today so far.
Downplaying it, contrasting it, distracting from it...that's going to get a lot more people killed.
