UPDATED: Local COVID-19 cases up more than 70% over the past week, county adds 1 new death

Local death toll rises to 571

  • Updated
  • 58

The number of new COVID-19 cases reported daily in the Prince William Health District are rising quickly as the more contagious Delta variant “sweeps across the country,” the health district reported Wednesday.

Throughout most of June, the Prince William Health District, which includes the county, Manassas and Manassas Park, reported fewer than 20 cases a day. Daily cases have been rising since early July and peaked at 51 on Wednesday, July 21. That's the highest they've been since early May.

The seven-day average of new daily cases reported in the health district is now climbing at a rate of about 70% to 75% each week, rising from about 15 new daily cases one week ago, to 26 new daily cases as of Thursday, July 22, according to the Virginia Department of Health data.

The health district, which includes Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park, was reporting an average of just nine cases a day two weeks ago. Daily cases have risen 188% over the last 14 days.

Still, “breakthrough” cases among the fully vaccinated are rare in Northern Virginia. More than 98% of new cases in the region are among those who are not fully vaccinated.

Since June 1, 27 of the 1,513 cases reported in the region were breakthrough cases. There have been no new hospitalizations nor deaths in Northern Virginia among fully vaccinated residents during the same time period, according to VDH data.

Local deaths

The death of one more Prince William County resident due to COVID-19 was reported in recent days. The loss of a Black woman in her 60s was reported on Wednesday, July 21, according to VDH.

Cases rise across the state

Across Virginia, the seven-day average number of new cases reported daily rose to 499 on Thursday, July 22, an increase of about 60% from the 309 reported July 17, according to VDH.

The increase in new cases is blamed on the rising prevalence of the Delta variant and its impact on areas of the state and country where vaccination rates are still low, according the UVA Biocomplexity Institute and the CDC.

COVID-19 infections per capita are rising in most Northern Virginia jurisdictions despite their relatively high vaccination rates.

Delta variant levels in Virginia

As of Friday, July 16, the most recent data available, the state had confirmed 158 COVID-19 infections due to the Delta variant, including 39 in Northern Virginia. 

The Delta variant is the second-most prevalent variant in Virginia but is far surpassed by the Alpha variant, formerly known as the U.K. variant. There have been at least 2,981 COVID-19 infections attributed to the Alpha variant across the state, according to VDH.

Because the state health department analyzes only a limited number of cases, the actual number of cases attributed to the Delta variant is almost certainly higher, the VDH says.

Local hospitalizations

The Prince William Health District reported four new hospitalizations due to COVID-19 in recent days, those of one resident in their 20s, one in their 40s and two age 80 or older, according to VDH data.

Local vaccinations

At the same time, the Prince William Health District briefly reached last Tuesday the 70% mark for adults vaccinated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. But an adjustment of VDH data later in the week showed the county once again below that benchmark.

As of Thursday, July 22, the county reported a one-dose adult vaccination rate of 69.9%.  

Monday, July 19: COVID-19 cases rise 40% in Prince William, county reports 3 more deaths

While still relatively low, COVID-19 cases reported in Prince William County were up nearly 40% this past week, rising to an average of about 18 new cases a day from 13 last week. 

But more than 98% of new cases in Northern Virginia are among those who are not fully vaccinated, and region’s relatively high vaccination rate seems to be shielding local residents so far from the worst effects of the Delta variant, which the University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute says is likely now the dominant strain in the state.

Since June 1, only 27 of the 1,548 COVID-19 cases reported in Northern Virginia were “breakthrough” cases among fully vaccinated residents. There have been no new hospitalizations nor deaths in Northern Virginia among fully vaccinated residents during the same time period, according to VDH data.

Across Virginia, the seven-day average number of new daily cases rose to 376 on Monday, July 19, a 60% increase from the previous week, according to Virginia Department of Health data.

Still, that average daily case number is 78% lower than the state was reporting in March and 48% lower than the daily average reported in the summer of 2020. COVID-19 cases reached a peak of more than 6,000 average daily cases in mid-January 2021.

Local deaths

The Prince William Health District reported the deaths of three more county residents over the past week. The deaths of one man and woman, both Latinos and both in their 60s, were reported on Tuesday and Wednesday, July  13 and 14.

The death of a white woman in her 40s was reported on Monday, July 19. The latest fatalities bring Prince William Health District’s death toll due to the pandemic to 570

Local vaccinations

The Prince William Health District briefly reached last week the 70% mark for adults vaccinated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. But an adjustment of VDH data later in the week showed the county once again just below that benchmark.

As of Monday, the county reported a one-dose adult vaccination rate of 69.6%. 

Local cases by age group

The Prince William Health District reported about 112 new cases over the past week. New cases were highest among residents in their 30s, 40s and 50s with 29 new cases in each age group. There were 19 new cases reported among residents ages 10 to 19, and nine new cases reported among residents age 9 and younger. Only residents 12 and up are currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

As of Monday, July 19, the state had confirmed 158 COVID-19 infections due to the Delta variant, including 39 in Northern Virginia. But because the health department analyzes only a limited number of infection samples, the actual number of cases attributed to the delta variant is almost certainly higher.

Local hospitalizations

The Prince William Health District reported no new hospitalizations due to COVID-19 over the past week.

Rate of COVID-19 per capita

Rates of COVID-19 infections per capita throughout Northern Virginia remain in the “low” range but ticked up in nearly every jurisdiction over the past week. They range from a low of -.8 infections per 100,000 residents in Manassas Park to 4.7 infections per 100,000 residents in Stafford County. 

Percent-positivity rate

Prince William County’s percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 test held steady at 2.3% this week, which remains well below the 5% target that is understood to be an indication that there is enough testing being done to identify most cases of the disease. 

Across Northern Virginia, the percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 tests ranged from 1.3% in Loudoun County to 5.2% in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, which includes Fauquier County.

Cases by ZIP Code

Average daily cases declined or remained the same in 14 of the county's 20 ZIP Codes last week, while rising in four and dropping in two.

Average daily cases rose in the following four ZIP codes 20111, 22134, 22172 and 22193.

Average daily cases fell in only two ZIP Codes: 20136 and 20169.

Average daily cases remained the same in these 14 ZIP Codes: 20109, 20110, 20112, 20119, 20137, 20143, 20155, 20181, 20187, 22025, 22026, 22125 and 22191.

There were zero new cases all week in five ZIP Codes: 20119, 20137, 20143, 22125 and 22134.

Monday, July 12: COVID-19 cases rise in Prince William, across Va. County reports no new deaths

COVID-19 cases are rising in Prince William County and across the state this week, likely because of the more contagious Delta variant, which is “likely dominant in Virginia or will be soon,” according to the University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute.

Cases, hospitalizations and deaths among fully vaccinated people – known as “breakthrough” cases -- are extremely low in Northern Virginia and across the state, according to new information shared by the Virginia Department of Health late last week.

Since May 1, Northern Virginia has had a total of 66 breakthrough cases, one breakthrough hospitalization and zero breakthrough deaths. Put another way, 98.2% of cases, 99.2% hospitalizations and 100% of all deaths in Northern Virginia since May 1 were among individuals who were not fully vaccinated, according to the VDH.

Meanwhile, the Prince William Health District reported no new deaths last week, and the county is on the cusp of reaching the 70% mark for adults vaccinated with at least one dose. Prince William County reported a one-dose adult vaccination rate of 69.8% on Sunday, July 11. 

Cases

Prince William County reported 12 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, July 12, and is now reporting an average of about 13 a day, up about 46% from the average of seven daily cases last week. The average number of daily cases in the county is equal to what it was two weeks ago.

Statewide, Virginia reported 237 new cases a day as of Monday, up 30% from an average of 182 daily cases last week.

The Prince William Health District reported about 90 new cases locally over the past week, with new cases highest numbers among residents in their 20s, 30s and 40s – as well as those age 10 to 19. Only those age 12 and up are currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

As of Monday, July 12, the state had confirmed 88 COVID-19 infections due to the Delta variant, including seven in the Prince William Health District. But because the health department analyzes only a limited number of infection samples, the actual number of cases attributed to the delta variant is almost certainly higher.

The University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute is predicting a surge of COVID-19 cases across the state beginning in August and lasting into the fall, largely because of the Delta variant, which is two and a half times more contagious than the original COVID-19 virus, according to the institute’s latest report.

The rise in new cases could reach a rate of 6 per 100,000 residents, the report says. That would be about double the current rate of infection per capita statewide, which stood at 2.7 infections per 100,000 residents as of Monday, July 12, up from 2.1 last week.

Local hospitalizations

The Prince William Health District reported seven new hospitalizations over the past week, down from 17 last week. Local residents hospitalized for COVID-19 over the past week included two residents in their 30s, two in their 50s and three age 70 or older, according to VDH data.

Rate of COVID-19 per capita

Rates of COVID-19 infections per capita throughout Northern Virginia remain in the “low” range but ticked up in nearly every Northern Virginia jurisdiction over the past week. They range from a low of 1 infection per 100,000 residents in Loudoun County to 4.9 infections per 100,000 residents in Fauquier County. 

Percent-positivity rate

Prince William County’s percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 tests rose to 2.3% from 1.7% last week. That remains well below the 5% target, which is understood to be an indication that there is enough testing being done to identify most cases of the disease. 

Across Northern Virginia, the percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 tests ranged from .9% in Arlington County to 3.7% in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, which includes Fauquier County.

Cases by ZIP Code

Average daily cases declined or remained the same in 11 of the county's 20 ZIP Codes last week, while rising in nine and dropping in one.

Average daily cases rose in nine ZIP codes 20109, 20110, 20136, 20155, 20169, 20181, 20187, 22134 and 22191.

Average daily cases fell in only one ZIP Code: 22025.

Average daily cases remained the same in 10 ZIP Codes: 20111, 20112, 20119, 20137, 20143, 22026, 22125, 22172, 22191 and 22193.

There were zero new cases all week in three ZIP Codes: 20119, 20143 and 22125.

Monday, July 5: Prince William, Manassas Park fall short of July 4th vaccination goal, county reports 3 more deaths

Both Prince William County and Manassas Park fell short of President Joe Biden’s goal of having 70% of adults receive at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by the Fourth of July holiday.

Meanwhile, the average number of daily cases reported locally continued to decline over the past week, but hospitalizations and deaths ticked up, with the county reporting three more deaths since June 29, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

Local deaths

The deaths of three more Prince William County residents due to COVID-19 were reported over the past week, including those of a Latino man in his 50s and two white residents, a man and a woman, one in their 70s and one age 80 or older.

The latest fatalities bring the Prince William Health District’s total death toll due to the pandemic to 567. That includes the deaths of 508 Prince William County residents, 48 City of Manassas residents and 11 residents of Manassas Park.

Cases

Statewide, new cases continued to rise over the past week, with the highly contagious Delta variant now making up about 13% of the infections in the state based on genomic testing done by the VDH.

Also as of Monday, July 5, the VDH was reporting an average of 182 new cases a day across the state, an increase of about 34% from the daily average of 136 one week ago.

Also as of July 5, the state had confirmed 67 COVID-19 infections due to the Delta variant, including five in the Prince William Health District. But because the health department analyzes only a limited number of infection samples, the actual number of cases attributed to the delta variant is almost certainly higher.

The University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute is predicting a surge of COVID-19 cases across the state beginning in August and lasting into the fall, largely because of the Delta variant, which is two and a half times more contagious than the original COVID-19 virus, according to the institute’s latest report.

The rise in new cases could reach a rate of 6 per 100,000 residents, the report says. That would be about three times the current rate of infection per capita statewide, which stood at 2.1 infections per 100,000 residents as of Monday, July 5.

Because vaccination rates are uneven across the state, however, not all parts of the state would affected equally, according to the UVA Biocomplexity Institute's latest weekly report. The southwest and northwest regions could see more cases as a result of their relatively lower vaccination rates, the report said.

The Delta variant is concerning for a number of reasons. First, it spreads at a much higher rate than previous variants. Second, it shows some limited vaccine escape primarily among persons not fully vaccinated, the report said.

"Although those with only one dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine retain some risk for infection and hospitalization, that risk is higher with the Delta variant. Although sparse, early evidence suggests that it may also cause more severe illness," the report notes.

Local vaccinations

As of Sunday, the City of Manassas and Prince William County remain third and fifth, respectively, among Northern Virginia jurisdictions in the percent of adults with at least one dose of the vaccine, according to VDH.

Loudoun County is leading the region with 76.9% of its adults vaccinated with at least one dose, followed by Fairfax County with 74.7%. The City of Manassas reported 72.2%, while Arlington County reported 69.5%.

Prince William County is reporting that 68.9% of its adults have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine – up from 67.9% last week. About 60.7% of Prince William adults are fully vaccinated (up from 59.6% last week) while 48.3% of the county’s total population is fully vaccinated (up from 47.1% last week), according to VDH data.

Local cases

Locally, Prince William County is reporting about seven new cases a day, down from an average of 13 new cases a day reported just one week ago.

The Prince William Health District reported about 71 new cases last week, down from 85 the previous week. 

Kids and teens ages 10 to 19 reported the most new cases with 25, followed by residents in their 50s, who reported 12 new cases. Residents in their 40s reported nine new cases, while those in their 20s reported eight, according to VDH data.

Kids ages 9 and under reported five new cases this week, down from seven last week. Kids under the age of 12 remain ineligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Local hospitalizations

The Prince William Health District reported 17 new hospitalizations over the past week, about double the weekly number reported in recent weeks. Those hospitalized for COVID-19 included one resident in their 20s, three in their 40s, three in their 50s and five in their 60s, according to VDH data.

Two people in their 70s were hospitalized with COVID-19 as were three local residents age 80 or older. 

Rate of COVID-19 per capita

Rates of COVID-19 infections per capita throughout Northern Virginia remain in the “very low” range and vary from 0 cases per 100,000 residents in Manassas Park to 3.6 per 100,000 residents in Spotsylvania County. 

Percent-positivity rate

Prince William County’s percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 tests was unchanged at 1.7% this week. That remains well below the 5% target, which is understood to be an indication that there is enough testing being done to identify most cases of the disease. 

Across Northern Virginia, the percent-positivity rate on COVID-19 tests ranged from .5% in Arlington County to 4.4% in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, which includes Fauquier County.

Cases by ZIP Code

Average daily cases declined or remained the same in 17 of the county's 20 ZIP Codes last week, while rising in three.

Average daily cases rose in ZIP Codes 20112, 20181 and 22134. Average daily cases fell in ZIP Codes 20109, 20111 and 22192.

Average daily cases remained the same in 20110, 20119, 20136, 20137, 20143, 20155, 20169, 20187, 22025, 22026, 22125, 22172, 22191 and 22193.

There were zero new cases all week in four ZIP Codes: 20109, 20143, 20169 and 22125.

Media will now go back to the Wuhan flu to distract the public from the Biden Chinese scandals. Don't belive the Chinese propaganda. The vaccine is out.

someone

Remember H1N1? Guess how many American "cases" there were in the U.S.? SIXTY MILLION. That's 60,000,000. During that time, Obama & Biden were in the White House. They did next-to-nothing about it. You should think about that.

JimiWeaver4

Yes there were 60,000,000 H1N1 cases in 2009, but only 12,469 deaths

The Corona Virus has already caused almost 300,000 deaths and is officillay the current leading cause of death in the USA according to both the CDC & the White House Corona Virus task force.

someone

I can't believe the Fake News didn't say that RBG died of COVID. They let a crisis go to waste.

ed1

Maybe because it's not fake news? Perhaps you should take a more critical look at your own sources of information.

zcxnissan

6% of 186k is.

Catharpin411

Once this China Virus cant be used as a Socialist Demo political football the China Virus will simply go away.

IMPORTANT NEWS NOT FOUND HERE: CDC declares that ONLY 6% of the deaths are FROM the China Virus...the balance are deaths from thing like cancer and stroke but the patient MAY have also had the China Virus...6%...the CDC has been LYING to us for months...ya lets all hail, Fauci. Bet he resigns soon and goes to work for Gates. Remember that we have several Socialist Demos that moved sick people in with Senior Citizens and KILLED them. Can't wait for the class action suit against them.

Once again this is simply a terrible article, poorly written and even more poorly researched.

Stop printing lies as it makes you look like China is sending you cash to print such lies

Omarndc72

Same old socialists propaganda with this newspaper. Garbage.

Omarndc72

Is time to move on from this covid aka flu. Let's get back to normal and live with it. Enough of the scare tactics. We didn't shut the economy for bird flu, swine flu , or ebola or even the flu pandemic. Does anyone remember this happening?? No. So let's cut the bull sh×t and get back to normal.

JosephGeorge4Neabsco

Show the number of deaths and speed of transmission for each of those events. If you cannot, live your life and stfu.

Catharpin411

A few passing thoughts:

1. it is such bad journalism keeping this article as long as it is...NO ONE is reading it all..you earn an F

2.notice all the young rioters, looters and protestors getting sick...they earn an "S" for stupidity

3. notice that the recovery rate is now over 99%...yes lets please put the thumbscrews to the entire state with a 99% recovery rate

4. notice if you will that the China Virus now cures cancer and stroke to name a few as doctors move to ID the China Virus as the bad guy so they can get more kickback money,

5. let's are sure to close schools since the Union says so

6. the taxpayer will make out well since all that money not spent by the schools will be extra cash now. I mean they aren't going to simply spend it willy nilly right...LOL

7. let's be sure to punish the whole state for what NOVA Richmond and Hampton do

8. VA is soooo poorly run and so under the thumb of the Unions and Bloomberg...it has become a grotesque joke

zcxnissan

Preach it Catharpin411. This state is too far gone on corruption now. It's inbred in Progressives.

someone

Yes. Kathleen Corn-Filler is a total socialist from New York.

zcxnissan

Notice the recent rise in cases in younger people due to the protest/riot spike.

zcxnissan

As well as no appreciable rise in deaths or hospitalizations. Despite the spike in cases caused by the protests/riots. Pretty much a spike nationwide in all the areas where their were large protests/riots.

Omarndc72

Once the covid scam starts to go away, the race and riots will continue, when that slows down, back to the covid nonsense.

Marty

Instead of a mile long article, one table with basic info would provide the necessary information. Total number of infections, % hospitalization, % death. Overall and daily. And by age groups.Such table would fit in the computer screen.

zcxnissan

Sad part is it truly peaked in April. Gov. Blackface dragged it out for political gain just like the mask edict, months after he should have done it. Now we have hot, warm and humid temperatures and sunlight the worst things for a virus and yet we have to wear masks in certain businesses. Good thing it's only enforceable by the health dept.

RaiderRider

number of cases is irrelevant as there is more testing. How about telling us about the hospitalization rate instead.

Marty

These number are pretty much useless. Especially for 60 years would and below. Would be good to know their health status and other relevant info.

Heymarket

I am disappointed to see PrinceWilliamTimes stopped reporting COVID-19 statistics (cases/deaths) for the "Northern Virginia" area. This was quite useful. They kept reporting these as long as the numbers were going up. Once they started trending downward, they stopped. I was counting on them to finish telling the whole story.

zcxnissan

Still pretty much a nursing home disease unless you have comorbidities like diabetes and obesity while younger. I see with the protests that social distancing never really mattered. Today's progressive democrat, do as I say not as I do. See Gov. Northam about that one.

Jia7c

New here. I took a test last Tuesday/Wednesday in Manassas. They still haven’t called me. Called the people doing the test they state they don’t handle the results and someone will call this week.

Marty

If you feel OK, why would you take the test? 5 minutes later (figuratively speaking) you can get infected and the entire test was a waste of time.

Marty

Our inept governor and his staff should travel, to Florida to learn how to handle the virus.

InsideCommenter

This comment aged horribly Florida is an epicenter of the virus while Virginia is doing much better.

Omarndc72

Let businesses set their rules for dealing with the public in a safe manner till this blows over. Keep the beurocrats and politicians quarantine in Richmond, leave the rest of us alone.

zcxnissan

Its obvious it peaked in April by any metric. Obvious and deliberate overreaction by the Governor.

ed1

Peaked yes but due to the lack of appropriate measures by people out and about, it's declining at an alarming slow rate.

zcxnissan

Double peaked and has fallen off the map literally.

Marty

Looks like the governor is incapable of managing the virus crisis. Things are going from bad to worse by the day.

Omarndc72

You want to see how fast they open. ? Stop paying all of the state employees and politicians from governor down. Then you see how fast the politicians change.

Jameson

What is going to change by June 10th that will allow businesses to re-open. I can only imagine he will try to push the date back again.

someone

As more people are tested, more people will test positive for COVID-19. Flu viruses can hang-around for years. So, businesses could be closed for years.

zcxnissan

Its insane to do that you know that right?

someone

Yes. I know it's insane. Here we are, it's the end of August & the Democrats are still pushing their end-of-the-world narrative. It's crazy & CORRUPT.

joatmon

Because people are impatient and not taking it as seriously as they should. The stay at home order needs to be strictly enforced and more businesses need to shut down. I'm sorry, but McDonalds and Starbucks aren't essential. I see kids continuing to play on playgrounds and teenagers socializing because they are too dumb to realize the ramifications of their actions, nor do they care because they seem no threat to themselves. I received an email from a painting contractor the other day saying they are open and operating as an essential business. Really!? Stay home people or this will never get better!

Marty

We need to shut down 75% of the government, it is also not essential. Then we shall see how fast everything reopens. For the people who work at McDonalds, McDonalds is essential.

zcxnissan

Brad take your gibberish elsewhere fascist. More people are dying of murder, suicide and other health conditions because of quarantines and lock downs then this bad year flu. If you had practiced better eating and sanitary habits we probably wouldn't even have to discuss this you confused gender fool. Go see a psychiatrist.

Omarndc72

Its simple, go back to work. If your sick dont go out stay home till is passed. Stay away from elder people and wash your hands dont touch your face.

weouchere

InsideCommenter + Brad = Morons. Were you idiots calling him out for acting too soon before you started saying he acted too late like the rest of the Libtard party?

InsideCommenter

weouchere + zcxnissan = batshit crazy morons. I was never calling him out for acting too soon, he acted to late if we had started these measures two weeks earlier we would've been able to avoid 90% of the cases. The gas-lighting and lies you all do are just hilarious.

zcxnissan

Actually it has been noted by many medical studies that blacks are more susceptible because they have many underlying conditions like obesity, heart disease, diabetes, unhealthy lifestyles. Social distancing is not being practiced in the cities. That's obvious. See New York City. Also wondering why nursing home death statistics are not being reported properly. They are ginning up the totals trying to use any disaster for political advantage. InsideCommenter and Brad your TDS is obvious.

zcxnissan

The numbers in Chesterfield pale in comparison to Democrat cities and counties nationwide.

InsideCommenter

Ignorant statement of the article award has now been granted. A virus will spread where more people live, places that are more densely populated are naturally where the virus will spread faster. Despite this Democratic areas have been doing better than Red states who are whining like crybabies about not being able to get a haircut or dine in, a rise in cases in the state of Kentucky was attributed to fascist protests about the stay at home orders.

zcxnissan

Gaslighting was a mastery first aced by Tamanny Hall democrats and passed on from generation to generation. From there to democrat Klansmen and segregationists. Even up to the modern day. Nowadays they have turned more fascistic/communist with their green new deals and universal incomes. Not to mention the bs being slung about global warming/climate change, or whatever they will call it next week.

Brad

Look, people are dying because of this terrible disease. Why don't you take your lies and obsessions to some neo-conservative chat room, no one wants to read your gibberish here.

InsideCommenter

What is this hot pile of garbage you call an argument. All you do is name call talk about facts and logic not whatever you saw on Facebook.

ed1

All he said was people are dying. That is accurate. Nationally we've had more deaths in a month than from a year with flu and that's with all the social distancing. If you're not capable of taking in seriously or don't want to be stuck at home, please at least where a mask and avoid contact with others.

InsideCommenter

ed1,

I agree with the one who talked about the mortality of this grave disease. The one who I was rebutting was zcxnissan who constantly trolls and makes up lies.

Joemama

If these non-essential democrats would stay home it would stop spreading.

InsideCommenter

Maybe if the orange cheeto and his cultists would stay at their home instead of prancing around we could flatten the curve.

Brad

Or maybe if the orange cheeto and his cultists had done their job timely and correctly in the first place these unfortunates might not have been infected or died.

zcxnissan

I guess going to Chinatown doesn't count if your Nancy Pelosi. So many lies, it comes natural to the old bat. She's probably a super spreader. She probably used hydroxychloroquine as an antidote.

ed1

Why would she use an unproven, dangerous drug pushed by trump. Was he being sarcastic about that one as well or only about disinfectant and really bright lights?

zcxnissan

Funny how most of the deaths are in Democrat cities and states. I guess they don't follow rules or laws.
