U.S. reports more than 83,000 coronavirus cases, record daily total
[www.cnbc.com]

The U.S. reported a record-breaking number of new coronavirus cases on Friday, continuing an alarming surge and stoking concerns from health experts that the nation could be in for a difficult winter.

The country reported more than 83,700 new Covid-19 cases on Friday, passing the last record of roughly 77,300 cases seen on July 16 as the U.S. grappled with outbreaks in Sun Belt states, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

“I think we’re in for a very hard stretch here,” Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former U.S. Food and Drug Administration commissioner, told CNBC on Friday evening. “I think the winter is going to be very difficult.”

I just heard Cheeto say that we won’t hear anything more about the virus beginning Nov 4. It is all just a political ploy by his enemies. RollingEyesSmiley5

Honestly, how can people stand there and listen to, much less believe the lies that come out of his face.
I will never, never understand.

What truly worries me: Nov. 1st or 2nd, we will hear the magic news of a safe and effective vaccine being developed. Remember, it matters not a whit if it isn't true. [www.youtube.com]

We did curbside pickup this evening. The restaurant parking lots were 3/4 full with indoor diners but then I live in the most conservative district in my state so that’s not unexpected.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
