Quick thought: tests per mil measure is not ideal bc someone could test neg then be tested repeatedly until they go positive, then again negative if cured. E.g., doctors. Ppl tested per M is better.
US doing well not only testing in absolute numbers but its testing per million, beating out Sweden, Finland, France, and the UK and rapidly catching up to COVID strongholds as Belgium and Spain https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries

What can be done about China? Fake infection numbers, preventing WHO from acknowledging Taiwan, sending faulty masks and coronavirus testing kits to other nations. When will they be held accountable?
On a Trump e-mail list to KNOW THE ENEMY and this is what he had to say today. How presidential 🤬😳
