We are now several months into the most devastating pandemic that much of our generation has seen, the disease known as Covid-19. Quarantining, lock-downs, social distancing, all the mitigating efforts we have undertaken to keep this virus at bay, have brought us to where we are today. The numbers are frightening.
As of August 20 New York state still leads the nation in total deaths, but California, Texas and Florida have surpassed New York in total cases.

Increased testing has provided, what we hope, is a more accurate picture of our current status in the USA. Nationwide, as of August 20, a total 5,746,272 people have been infected, 3,095,484 have recovered, while 177,424 people have died from the virus, according to Worldometers. Around the world, there are 22,850,102 cases, with 796,376 deaths.
