In the middle of pretending he didn’t lose the election, President Donald Trump resumed his attempts to put a rosy spin on his disastrous response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now killed more than a quarter of a million Americans, on Friday morning.
Plop plop fizz fizz...
Trump retweeted a chart from a Twitter account named “Hydroxychloroquine News” showing that the U.S. had a smaller “case fatality rate” on October 9 than six other countries.

“I have seen the claim that the United States has a higher fatality rate from Covid-19 than other wealthy nations. This claim appears to be entirely false and perhaps politically motivated,” the account, named after the antimalarial drug Trump falsely touted as a miracle cure for COVID-19, tweeted.

However, the U.S. indisputably has the highest COVID-19 death toll in the world, and even the description of the chart Trump retweeted notes that its data is a “poor measure of the mortality risk of the disease.”

Dunno if this will help, but I posted this to people I love and care about.

Stay home! Many of these are being driven by small gatherings. Folks have been out in the public, are asymptomatic and are bringing it home to family and friends where they would not want to wear a mask because humans are social and think we're safe among the people with which we are closest, even if they do not live in our household.

Protect your elders and others that are vulnerable. Stay home and let them have more Happy Thanksgivings. This one isn't worth the risk. Vaccines are on the way. Next year will be better.
ETA: This was in response to this:

This is a weird kind of irony, because from the Kingdom days all the way up until the 1960's the place that Kalawao County occupies was used as a leper colony.

The Disunited States of America are united once more. After a brutal election that exacerbated bitter partisan divisions and left the country feeling as though it had been torn in two, it has at last been thrown back together.

For all the wrong reasons.

The great leveler is coronavirus. Covid-19 is rampaging across the US as though it were on a personal mission to unify the splintered nation in an unfolding catastrophe. Of the 50 states of the Union, all but one – isolated Hawaii – is seeing alarming surges in new cases. The virus is on the rise so uniformly across the vast landmass of the US, that records are being shattered daily.

Almost 12m cases have been recorded. In just one day the US notched up 184,000 new cases – six times the total number of infections in South Korea since the pandemic began.
