According to them yesterday August 18 In the middle of summer when virus
epidemics are at their minimum 1358 Americans died of COVID-19 and 43,999
new cases were reported. Somebody, I forget his name, predicted the virus
would just go away "like magic" by April when things started to get warm.
It didn't happen. So I don't think the belief that the pandemic is getting
worse is  all that irrational. I dread the fall and winter.
