New York Times in March: Covid deaths might run from 200,000 to 1.7 million. The count today is a bit below 211,000. That is quite near the minimum predicted. You and your team are to be congratulated.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. Amen! Welcome back Mr. President and praise the Lord that covid deaths are running at the minimum prediction! Good news all around. 🙂

    There is a face ap for editing photos. LOL, that thing is downright terrifying, so I don’t recommend it! A friend of mine is forever making himself look younger and then putting his face on various celebrities just to horrify us all.

      Loved your blog today, IB. I’m not sweating it – looking older, I mean. Don’t even fake it much. If I take off my glasses I can’t see to put on make up – and I don’t look too bad with my glasses off. LOL

      One has to carry eggs in many baskets. President can’t pay me my SS if he doesn’t have young people working. Health in one basket; economy in the other. And the hounds are all around.

    Thank GOD we had no minimum predictions of deaths in our nation. We are endeavouriing to follow our health experts to save all lives by not becoming ‘selfish’. Congratulations to Mr Trump. God continue to grant HIM Grace. If he is to lead by example then he needs to proclaim not that covid is ok but that it remains dangerous even for little ones who don’t have the money and protection of prestige and power. We have gone far beyond politics it is LIFE or death in many nations still.

    Actually, there are fewer deaths than that. When the CDC took out the people who died WITH Covid-19 instead of FROM Covid-19, it reduced the total. And most of those were in nursing homes when people were put back into the nursing homes after they were diagnosed with Covid-19.

    As it is with everything else Covid that people with another agenda are trying to hide — it is very, very hard to find that information now. People might refuse to wear masks and stay away from church.
