In other words

Roughly the city of Houston. Fourth largest city in the country. Or about 1.5% of the total population. And actually, Italy and Estonia are testing more people per capita than the U.S.  Italy has performed far more tests in total than the U.S.  Trump's claim is as absurd as his idea that disinfectants might kill the virus in infected people.

Actually what you said is concern about the coronavirus was the Democrat's "new hoax."  That was on February 28.  I'm not sure how, almost two months later, that's any better or why you would want to call attention to it.

Those are the most recent numbers.  The number of confirmed deaths in the United States is the highest in the world.  It is on track to be 60,000 by the end of April.  And yet you have not one word of compassion to offer the mourners, not one word of consolation to offer the aggrieved, not one word of comfort to offer the stricken country.

You haven't even so much as ordered flags to half-mast.

All you care about is what is said about you.  Frank Bruni got it right:  you regard even a mountain of corpses as a stage.
