  1. Delaying the holiday for three days should fix everything LOL Next thing governments will be doing is watering crops with Gatorade instead of water

  2. Soon they will not give any updates and people will forget about it. Notice how you're getting less and less updates.

    Also notice how the deaths increase in increments of 15 and then all of a sudden they started dropping to increments of a handful.

  3. https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6
