  • July 1, 2020 - COVID-19 in the U.S.

    The U.S. is not doing well at all. We have the highest number of cases and deaths in the world. During the last five days of June, 2020, there were major spikes in new cases in large states as Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas. July will be critical as to whether or not the country has lost control of the virus.
