"When you have the kind of inflection that we have, it doesn't all of a sudden turn around like that," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told ABC's "This Week." "So clearly in the next few weeks, we're going to have the same sort of thing. And perhaps even two or three weeks down the line ... we may see a surge upon a surge."

My wife has already been informed by one of her employees that they were exposed to a COVID positive extended family member at Thanksgiving dinner.

Only 3 days out.

Dr Birx's comment this morning was an eye-opener. Lemme see if I can find a transcript of it...

...Dr. Deborah Birx, coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force, said on Sunday that the U.S. is entering the days following Thanksgiving with a much greater number of cases, hospitalizations and daily deaths across the country than the period after Memorial Day weekend, when the country previously experienced a surge in the virus.

"We saw what happened post-Memorial day. Now we are deeply worried about what could happen post Thanksgiving because the number of cases -- 25,000 [post-Memorial Day] versus 180,000 a day [post-Thanksgiving] -- that's why we are deeply concerned," Birx said in an interview with CBS News....

Been saying this since May. The numbers then weren't even close to what we would see. It's a novel pandemic. This is what is going to happen across the world, and it has. All of the posturing and arguing over how it was handled has no bearing on the numbers. Time is the number one control of a novel pandemic. History has proven this over and over again. I know since Trump was in office it was up to the Dems to cry and whine every day because Americans were impacted. So my assumption is that they knew it was going to get a lot worse but felt they had to do their sheep duty to hate the POTUS since it wasn't one from their party. I'm just hoping that is the case and Dems have not been this terribly ignorant naturally.

Well Humtake it worked..Maybe.
It got people fired up to vote.
Thankfully there are still enough smart people left to know not to listen to what any politician says.
After 8+ months of sickness and death there simply cannot be ONE person that hasn't learned this.. Maybe.
We know damn well who to listen to but having someone to hate seems to drive some people to new lows.

More "both-sides" BS. One political party is far more trustworthy on Coronavirus. One is far more blameworthy. Stop being a proud idiot trump-is-single-largest-driver-of-covid-19-misinformation-cornell-study-finds
