9-11 and the pandemic

Today is the anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center resulting in 2,977 dead (according to Wikipedia). Today we know of over 192,000 U. S. citizens dead from the COVID–19 virus.

Another way to look at the pandemic’s toll in America is 64.5. That’s the number of nine elevens due to the virus.

What may be coming our way? Likely, well over 200,000 COVID deaths. A ghastly possibility: over two million dead if Trump’s latest hire, Dr. Atlas (aka Dr. Death) has his way and goes for herd immunity. Look on the bright side. At least Trump could use that as justification for his not doing anything.
