Another sad milestone reached UPDATED – and another …

World 5,119,655 +36,244 330,429 +1,190
1 USA 1,595,071 +2,348 95,015 +79

We have now passed 95,000 deaths

Before the site stops posting data today we will pass 96,000

We will hit the 100,000 mark no later than Monday, and quite conceivably earlier

We have not YET seen the spike in deaths that may occur as a result of the premature opening of some states, but we already know that hospitals in the central part of Alabama are seeing full ICUs.

And yet the so-called President says he would have done nothing different, and considers our case count (which is drastically understated) a badge of honor.

How sad it is.

UPDATE and now, at   4:03 PM      , note that we pass through another milestone:
