Trump having already killed 36-65,000 Americans by his inaction, the global “second wave” is beginning to level and then tick upward.

The continuing Black Lives Matter protests will not have helped us only because Trump is counting on conflict for his re-election, as if social distancing was somehow not related to public health.
