    HOORAY!! The positivity rate continues to decline. But wait, another story this morning mentions 4 new positive cases and one of them is hospitalized.
    Numbers don’t lie but, then again, they don’t always tell the whole truth.

    4% of the world population
    25% of the infections
    25% of the deaths

    It will go away. Like magic. It will disappear. We have it totally under control. We have more infections because we test more. The economy will be the greatest anybody’s ever seen. Nobody’s ever done what I’ve done. Strong. Powerful. Beautiful.

    I’ll wait with the HOORAY. The virus doesn’t care about State Borders. Lots of people travel again, going to the Beach, Bars and who knows where. Looking at FL, AZ, TX, CA and other States, things can get very ugly very quick.
