Um this is a pandemic. People are going to get sick. Most Americans can't afford to relax in their basement and not work. The consequences of keeping everybody at home to shelter in place are high risk as well. 86% of the deaths in America are those over 65 with other health problems. If you are already retired stay home as much as possible.

There is little real evidence that America would have done any better with Hillary in the White House. America has made a lot of progress in treating the disease. Fatalities are way down. People are spending 50% less time in the hospital. We peaked at 2701 daily deaths on May 6. The daily death count is about 500 now. Expect it to continue to go down. That being said every death is tragic.

If you don't want Trump in the White House you can vote him out. Simple as that.
