Ridley's Believe It Or Not September 27, 2020
CV World Cases: The CV pandemic across the planet continues with 217,338 new cases (a .66% increase compared to a 1.21% increase yesterday) to bring the total over 33 million to 33,183,342 cases, 7,675,479 of which are active, 25,507,863 of which have been closed with 24,507,503 recoveries (96.08% compared to yesterday’s 96.06%) and 1,000,360 deaths (3.92% compared to yesterday’s 3.94%) to continue the trend of increased recovery percentages and decreased mortality percentages.
CV USA Cases: New cases of 21,823 with total cases over 7 million at 7,295,718 (a .3% increase compared to yesterday’s 3.62% increase) with 2,560,723 active cases of which 14,093, on a downward trend with slight blips from a high of 19,155 on July 23 (14,135 yesterday and 15,881 on September 1), are in serious or critical condition as trend continues to go down, and 4,734,995 closures, 209,242 of which have been deaths (4.42% compared to yesterday’s 4.43%) and 4,525,753 of which have been recoveries (95.58% compared to yesterday’s 95.57%) (our death rate percentages continue to improve and are finally in single digits since Cuomo repealed on May 10 his order sending CV positive patients to nursing homes and ADL facilities and on a deaths per million population measurement at 631 ranks behind Peru (972), Belgium (860), Spain (668), Bolivia (668), Brazil (665), Chile (660), and Ecuador (637), and only slightly worse than UK (618), Italy (593), Sweden (581) that never closed its economy down like we did and Mexico (590) which announced it has run out of death certificates due to surge in deaths. We have now conducted 103,723,485 tests (now at 312,921/M compared to Russia at 309,011/M so Trump is telling truth that we conduct more tests in number and on a per capital basis but for the U.K. at 341,155).
Non CV Case News: Supposedly the NYT will have an “October Surprise” as it claims it has received tax returns for Trump stretching back decades which according to it will show no or very little taxes paid to to losses in Trump businesses, reports which Trump has earnestly denied; RBG’s casket was removed from lying in state so the dog whistles of riots must have been blown again in Louisville, Portland and Seattle with police attacked and laser targeting, car explosion and fire, arrests and vandalism but fortunately no one shot; the Houston area declared a water emergency now lifted after a girl was infected with the brain tissue eating ameba Naegleria fowleri and who fortunately recovered after a long stint in ICU and a ventilator and an experimental drug (scary news as the infection is almost always fatal but fortunately is very, very rare); the Rock claiming to be a centrist politically has just endorsed the most leftist ticket ever put forth by the Democratic Party (successful actor but wrong big time on this one so I hope he enjoys the Biden tax hike he will be hit with); the attacks against Barrett are rising in intensity with hate mongers like Ibram X. Kendi claiming she is a “white colonizer” for adopting 2 children from Haiti (what does that make Obama’s white mother who was 3 months pregnant when she married Obama’s African American father or his white grandparents that spent a lot of time raising him?); not sure if it is a going through the motions front but Pelosi has warned colleagues that Barrett’s Catholic religion should be out of bounds from attack.Chicago/Baltimore Gun Violence: In Chicago as of September 26, 2020, the number of shootings increased to 3,176 of whom 539 have died (total travesty of BLM when blacks are shot and killed by blacks in droves and only sounds of silence and complete absence of any protests in front of City Hall demanding action to curb the killings and shootings); Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population and hoping against all hopes that 2020 will not be a record in terms of deaths but now seems to be shooting less and killing less and is now 293 behind Chicago at 246 murders (when will Chicago and Baltimore get serious about this carnage or is this the case of true racism as a Blue run city turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the slaughter of people of color by people of color and when will the left focus on the problem of color on color shootings in Blue run cities which have been way more deadly and way more numerous than shootings by police or by random mass shootings which occur much less.
