COVID-19 national update

October is here and under normal circumstances we would be bracing for the onset of the annual flu season. This year, thanks to an incompetent White House administration and a charlatan of a president, this winter is going to be terrible. The biggest problem we are going to face is that the seasonal flu (which poses its own real threat to children and the elderly) presents the same symptoms as COVID-19 in its early stages. By the time COVID-19 drops into your chest it can already be too late. Not to mention the strain and the stress the influx of symptomatic patients can put on clinics, emergency rooms, hospitals, and their staffs.

The United States reports more than 50,000 COVID-19 cases for three days in a row. For the first time since mid-August, the U.S. has recorded its third consecutive day of more than 50,000 new COVID-19 cases.
