I read an article about how the COVID virus had raised the death rate
dramatically to 3.4 million. In fact, it had surged above the daily death rate
of heart disease and cancer, reaching, if I remember correctly, 3400 a couple
of times. Daily COVID deaths in compared with world wide death rates would
come in at number nine. (I wonder where they get their numbers.)
