Evan... you must have been fooled by some fake news... Don't you know our fearless leader has ended the Covid pandemic?Almost 92k cases in the US today and well over 1000 deaths.
BUT MUH T-CELL IMMUNITY AND HERD IMMUNITY!!?
Yeah, testing has increased, but so what? We never much dropped below 40-50k cases. We had a lull and nothing more. I fully expect 125k+ cases per day by the end of election week.
Very little chance we get this epidemic control without a cohesive federal policy that the States are willing to accept and adopt.
