You stand at the ready

If you were considered a dog

You’d be thought of as loyal

But you are seen as a chameleon

As you do what you are told

You become ever more pathetic

Thanksgiving in the U.S.: “A chain reaction of super-spreader events”

Getting together with family at Thanksgiving later this month?

The Guardian reports that might not go well.

The swell of autumn Covid-19 cases is already proving to be the most intense period for new infections of the entire pandemic. By various counts, the US broke a world record for new cases – 100,000 in a day – this week. Those new infections will portend new hospitalizations, and eventually deaths. Already, more than 230,000 Americans have died from Covid-19.

“If we don’t do anything to stop it, we are in the trajectory going straight up,” said Del Rio.

Del Rio predicted the United States could see 200,000 cases a day by Thanksgiving, if Americans do not adopt social distancing and universal masking immediately.
