    By The New York Times, Updated May 23, 2020, 2:03 P.M. E.T.

    this is a good one to send to conservative family/friends/acquaintances:

    'Incalculable loss': New York Times covers front page with 1,000 Covid-19 death notices


     98,815   98,831   99,031  99,047 Sunday mid-day.

    99,057  99,123   99,225...

    Whose stats do you use? just curious. not interested in getting deep in weeds about how they the different recorders do their counts, just interested in knowing which one was higher than NYTimes at this point in time.

    Numbers *dropped* this a.m. Reconciliation or cover-up?

    99,230  99,408 99,466
