Comparing like with like
In the USA the number of coronavirus deaths stands at 10,000.
10,000 is a fifth ( 20%) of the number of coronavirus deaths in Europe - already over 50,000.
I don't know what Europe is any more. I don't think anybody does. Is it the Europe on my school atlas?
If Turkey is in Europe then Europe's number could increase dramatically in the next couple of weeks.
I join with everyone in wishing British PM Boris Johnson well in his personal battle with the virus.
And I have to add that I was impressed with US President Donald Trump's heartfelt tribute to Boris and his never give up qualities.
The words of one Eurpoean leader, I shall not name him, left me cold. They were Orwellian in their exactness. Perhaps they were computer generated for the occasion.
I think that's all for today, unless things change dramatically.
Hope everybody is keeping safe and well in our little corner of Blogland.
