    Senator Bob Menendez @SenatorMenendez

    Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the @WHO in the midst of a pandemic.

    To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn't do it justice. This won't protect American lives or interests—it leaves Americans sick & America alone.

    Apparently Bolsonaro was socializing with the American ambassador to Brazil on Saturday with not a hint of social-distancing nor any masks. I have not heard whether the ambassador has been tested or, if so, what were his results. GH

    USA 398

    Ecuador 263
    Canada 230
    Switzerland 227

    It's easy to see that increases in Chile, Peru and Brazil have been massive, even more than in US where things are not under control either. Mid range increase in UK and Sweden, other countries on the list are currently doing ok. Mexico (226) will most certainly overtake Canada and Switzerland by the next update.

    In short, Sweden suffered a vastly higher death rate while failing to collect on the expected economic gains.

    I am tempted to say that when you say FULLY DESERVES it, you mean fully as in THE WHOLE THING, COMPLICATIONS AND EVERYTHING.
    That way I can be spared from admitting what a terrible human being I am.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    Accurate or not nobody knows, but Sweden's economy is forecast to performs less bad than the majority of other EU countries this year.
