I'm going with 12/17
on my 'Rona bingo card for the first 4K day. Might be a bit conservative, the big surge in cases is aging out next week.
Think I'll also be conservative and not put money on 5K until about 1/15. I think that maybe behavior may moderate a bit in the face of this, but with "Christmas" coming, who knows?
That ought to be about the peak, or close. That would put as at WWII level casualties by the inauguration.
Probably get out of this with under 600K, if you quit counting when it is just low level chronic and endemic.
Well worth it if the permanent House of Trump is placed on the throne. Otherwise..........
