The US has crossed another threshold. The 2k deaths level. 2,187 died Tuesday. The deadliest C-l9 day anywhere.

My phone just posted an alert that said the CDC announced that for every 1 covid19 case of infection, probably 8 cases were missed.

The spread of the virus is exponentially worldwide, but the CDC only mentioned cases in the United States (will reach 450,000 deaths December, January and February).

Now that a covid-19 vaccine has been approved and others will become available, beware of spammers who will offer you a fake vaccine for a huge price. Do not get a vaccine from a neighbor's cousin at his apartment. Only get your vaccine from a reputable medical clinic, hospital or pharmacy.

Here in the US, the covid-19 vaccine is supposed to be free, so do not "buy" a vaccine. It is possible that some healthcare providers might send you a very small bill to pay for the "administering" the vaccine; to pay for giving you the injection.
