USA getting close to 200,000 new daily covid cases and ~1000 covid deaths per day.

An estimated 50 million travelers this Thanksgiving. Some may have already started their trip home this weekend.

Don't need magical powers to see this will won't go well.

For those still on the fence, please consider alternatives to in-person Thanksgiving.

On top of the regular Zoom, Skype, Facetime, Whatsapp meetings, you can:

(1) Watch movies and Netflix with your family using Teleparty netflixparty.com
I recommend Crash Landing on You.
(2) Play super fun app/online games.

Among Us - Murder your family and friends digitally instead of at Thanksgiving dinner. cnet.com/how-to/among-u…

Due to administrative delays in death certificate processing, today’s #COVID19 death toll actually reflects persons who died 3-6 weeks ago. That means:

250,000 U.S. persons died of #COVID19 *as of 3-6 weeks ago*

Let that sink in.
What happens over 3-6 weeks?
🔸0-2 weeks to file application for a death certificate (longer if autopsy required, funeral home backlog, etc.)

🔸1-3 weeks to process application at the state and/or local level

🔸0-1 weeks to prepare and report

Our dog just passed away unexpectedly. It hurts. A LOT.
And yet, the pain of losing a dog pales in comparison to losing a relative to #COVID19.

If that's you: I'm deeply sorry for your loss, and wish I could have spared you any suffering.

I'll keep speaking truth to power until we get through this.

Everyone else: #WearAMask
Also: hug your pets, make sure they feel loved and cared for each and every day.

Do the same for your friends and family, and don't forget to take care of yourself as well.

We'll get through this, together. I promise.

So it’s time to talk about Thanksgiving. 1/
I say this as someone who LOVES Thanksgiving. I love my family. I love for excuses to get together. Yes I love stuffing even more. Spatchcock the bird and ... Oh, I digress! 2/
Let’s start with who comes to Thanksgiving. College kids! And older people!

Remember we’re supposed to “isolate the old people?” from Scott Atlas and the herders. 3/
