Exactly one week ago the US had 8,898 confirmed cases of COVID-19, today it
has 81,476, the highest of any nation in the world. One week ago there were
only 149 deaths from COVID-19, as of today there has been 1180 deaths. And
there is not the slightest sign the death rate is slowing down. That
doesn't sound like an overreaction to me. And unlike some, in my opinion I
don't think it would  be beautiful to have packed churches on Easter.
