Visualization showing how fast Covid-19 became the #1 cause of global death in 2020.

https://public.flourish.studio/visualisation/2944635/?fbclid=IwAR3xTTeXWAXYDYhhBhVI_7Ud2zQ9laieGaZyXHevFrck9YhiEolx_nFjqZ4

A bit of clarification, I think this chart is just comparing it to a variety of well-known and common causes to give perspective on how bad it is, not compare it to total global deaths period.  For example, cancer kills over 9 million a year, strokes over 5 million, car accidents over 1 million, etc.  Though a bit of an aside, I'd say when all the numbers are added up including the many deaths being missed in official counts, it's quite likely to top car accidents by year end.

You are correct, Jim, thank you for correcting my error.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has tested positive for the coronavirus.

"Bolsonaro has attempted to downplay the virus since the country saw an uptick of cases beginning in March and has cycled through three health directors due to constant disagreements about the handling of the virus, which has killed more than 65,000 Brazilians to date. He has repeatedly flouted pushes to wear a mask..."

If Dr.Donald Dump had taken this s**t serious from day one instead of just stoking a hate war, we wouldn't have the f**king riots! If this half baked 'wanna be a cowboy!' moron con artist from NYC paid attention to the real problems in this country which is going threw some serious growing pains right now and a pandemic !, instead of stating some WWF , National Enquirer, apes**t nonsense is true...well f**k.

But there are so many folks out there that think the aliens are going to attack, the Earth is flat, and there is a Nazi base in Antartica. So, I ain't really surprised. It' f^cking amazing how stupid people are.

Now, now, gentlemen.  This is a bad movie forum.
We cannot overlook the possibility that there are Nazi bases in BOTH those locations!!

If he mentions the ones at the centre of the earth do we need to shoot him for knowing too much?

Trump has officially begun to withdraw the US from the World Health Organization as pandemic spikes

Quote
WASHINGTON – The Trump administration has officially begun to withdraw the United States from the World Health Organization, even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grip the globe and infections spike in many states across the U.S. 

Congress received formal notification of the decision on Tuesday, more than a month after President Donald Trump announced his intention to end the U.S. relationship with the WHO and blasted the multilateral institution as a tool of China. The White House said the withdrawal would take effect on July 6, 2021.

I can't see any possible upside to this move for the American people at this time.  Question I mean, even if you thought it was a waste of money, wait until AFTER the pandemic to withdraw. EDIT: Nevermind, it wouldn't take place for a year. In all likelihood Biden will just rescind the order. Or Trump will flip flop again. Still, the optics are terrible. I sometimes wonder if he really IS trying to throw the election.

well let's be fair if the cops hadn't killed  George Floyd the riots wouldn't have happened and if they also weren't around killing innocent blacks the riots would not have happened &  if Trump had actually cared about another human being other than himself the pandemic wouldn't have gone this far this bad, and if we didn't have so much dumb f**ks  who refuse to wear mask and think that Donald Trump walks on water like Jesus himself than we wouldn't have this bad. people wouldn't this fed up either if he actually gave a damn about this country instead running it like a freaking business which isn't how a country should be run. if this or that etc..

this is an argument nobody will win cause it's not gonna change the fact we have a guy who prefers golf over doing his job. we have a president who looks at himself in the mirror each morning and prolly turns himself on. either way i pray that we don't have another 4 years with this clown and honestly i really doubt he even wants to even be the president at all, he loves the power and everything that comes with it but the work however..... the thing is he hates to lose his ego is just to big for that. even though all of us here have lost in some form all our lives on certain things.

and had Trump's family would have actually been there and said no you can't have this or that and here's why he wouldn't be the way he is, well maybe i dunno but who knows he may not be like this. either way he's got the biggest ego i've ever seen on anyone i've ever met in my life or anyone else on this planet i think alive or dead

Rev- you don't think the massive protests where no social distancing was observed had any effect on the spread of corona?


New York, which was headed down in coronovirus cases just reported its biggest day ever https://nypost.com/2020/07/03/ny-reports-918-new-virus-infections-9-covid-19-deaths/

pennywise - sorry to be so cynical but ultimately the protest and riots were a result of people being BORED more than anything else. WHy else would they have expanded into protests for transexual and gay rights? what does that have to do with george Floyd? People wanted to go outside
