China is undercounting, Florida is undercounting, many deaths aren't being reported as COVID19

In Spain, Italy, US and one would assume other countries where the pandemic has taken hold like Iran, France, etc the spike in deaths above average/typical deaths per week but which are not classified as COVID19 are likely CoVID.

With all of the noise due to lack of testing, spikes in the very ill and lack of hospital capacity plus sheer evil of governments trying to hide the true reach of this...it could be many years before the world gets a statistically valid and scientifically grounded estimate on just how many die in the COVID19 pandemic.

8. Even worse, these states that are under reporting

Corona virus deaths will use those artificially low numbers as an excuse to claim they have conquered the virus. Now its safe for businesses to reopen and people can return to their jobs. Yay, let's party! It's Corona time!

Low body counts is part of the criteria that Trump just told everyone at today's rally/infomercial for "opening up" the county. Red states will eagerly do whatever Trump tells them, the science and risk to people have no meaning. They'll do it, their Trump loving population will celebrate, go shopping and party, extolling his genius.

Jump forward in time about 3 weeks later and those states will get hit by a second wave of newly infected corona virus patients. The contagion will spread across state lines, infecting patients in other states that have been battling to beat the virus.

This will be Trump's legacy.
This will be the legacy of the Republican party.

9. You are correct. They will. It is so sad to see even a rampaging virus

Already having killed tens of thousands of fellow Americans cannot draw us together as one nation

10. The True Numbers will only come out...

If we defeat Trump and his pet Liars in November.

Otherwise They will continue to control the Information.

The victor's write History...the losers continue to suffer.
