Does it matter? The US and UK approaches have been dismal failures.

Ummm - I think you are making the assumption that keeping the number of deaths low was a major objective.

For the UK case I’m willing to apply the old adage that one shouldn’t attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence. In the US, there is plenty of malice at work at the highest level of government. As well as oodles of incompetence. They are not mutually exclusive, after all.

Looking back, why almost empty hospitals in Manhattan and hospitals in Bronx bursting at the seams?

I'm in top-left hand corner (0,0) and (1,0). I am however, considering (2,0).

I have an appointment with Junior-the-barber today. Have to look spik-n-span for my satellite speech for Thalesians 5 August.

Something is deeply wrong with the grammar here. Surely, 10 out 10 people who have died from Covid-19 (or, for that matter, anything else) are disabled.
