Because this Corona Virus pandemic has the potential to have long lasting affects on our economy, and peoples lives in general I wanted to compile a few stats from the CDC and see where we actually stand compared to what the main stream media keep feeding us.
I believe the affects from this virus will be seen far after it has run it’s course because of the decisions being made in this country “in the name of safety”.
These numbers reflect the total Covid pandemic and are currently much lower. If there is a second wave as some people predict, these numbers could go back up, or surpass the current numbers.
