Quite a contrast.

I watched the video yesterday. He does put out good content and is quite well informed, and its sometimes good to get an outside perspective, but don't expect anything new about SA that you can't get from MyBB or News24.
The American pandemic is careening out of control. Yesterday, the United States reported more than 52,000 new cases of the coronavirus, setting a new all-time daily record, according to the COVID Tracking Project at The Atlantic. The surge has put the country’s supply of coronavirus tests under strain, especially in some of the worst-hit states, such as Arizona, Texas, Florida, and California. But unlike in past weeks or months, the outbreak is no longer limited to a handful of states or cities. Many places across the country are seeing caseloads spike.
To the degree that the U.S. ever built an infrastructure to contain and suppress the coronavirus, it frayed this week.
Along the way, nearly every previous landmark for measuring the pandemic has been overwhelmed. The country reported about 300,000 new COVID-19 cases in the past week, more than in any previous week of the pandemic so far. This shattered the old record of more than 215,000 new cases, which was set last week. On June 16, Vice President Mike Pence bragged that the U.S. was seeing an average of 20,000 new infections a day, a decline from the April high of about 30,000 new daily cases. Since Pence’s boast, the U.S. has recorded more than 30,000 new cases on every day but four. Six days ago, the country reported more than 40,000 daily cases for the first time. Now it has smashed through the 50,000 mark.
Sad reading. Entirely predicable, and mostly preventable. Land of the free, home of the brave. And the stupid too. /s
Not just America. SA is doing terribly with almost 9k cases yesterday. Globally we are nearing a quarter million cases in one day.
You just need to check this thread to know why those numbers look like they do...
I can't really see what the article is about.Another +50 000 case day in the USA
Quite a few conspiracy nutters in Melbourne:
Victorian Health officials have raised concerns conspiracy theories are causing some people to refuse coronavirus testing.www.sbs.com.au
Yeah-no, that's what started all of this. The timeline fits perfectly.The reasons for the terrible situation in America are vast and multi factorial, and to just say it's due to the BLM protests is completely wrong.
Definitely won't try to change your mind. When one is certain they are right, and not willing to listen to new information or change ones opinion based on new evidence, it is pointless to argue.Yeah-no, that's what started all of this. The timeline fits perfectly.
(Don't bother trying to change my mind...it's not going to happen.)
