Covid-19 Numbers

Here’s what I have for today, for the state and the country at least. The city of Methuen hasn’t given us numbers in a while:

  • Massachusetts
    • Total Cases: 121,707 (up 392 from yesterday)
    • Deaths: 8,751
    • Death Rate: 7.19%
  • United States
    • Total Cases: 5,124,050 (up 52,871 from yesterday)
    • Deaths: 164,329
    • Death Rate: 3.21%

Sure, let’s open up the schools. Let’s get a shit load of six year olds to hang together in a closed room. What could possibly go wrong, 50,000 times in a single day.
