US will cross 100,000 daily Covid-19 infections "at some point" in next couple of weeks, former FDA head says
The Trumps don’t seem to understand that their supporters are dying from the coronavirus
"Since June, states that voted for Trump have been the center of new cases, with about 7 in 10 new cases emerging there. But it was only more recently that red counties began seeing the majority of cases (a function of the red state cases until then being centered in blue counties).
Since Sept. 5, most new cases in the nation have been in red counties. But it’s also the case that more deaths are occurring in places that voted for Trump. (In fact, the percentage of deaths occurring in red states has consistently been higher than the percentage of cases happening in those states.)
Looking at the seven-day averages of new deaths — meaning the average daily number of deaths in each county over the prior week — red counties just passed blue counties as the main driver of new deaths."
