    Another stats update as of 7:46 AM today. Last stats were from 5/16 at 7:46 AM, exactly 3 days ago:

    - 1,550,539 cases in US, up from 1,484,287, a 4.5% increase, which is a smaller increase than last time (5.4%). The increases of the last 6 days give a doubling rate of about every 44 days. At this rate, the US projects to hit 2,000,000 cases by about June 4. The new cases for this period were 66,252 compared to 75,651 for last time, for a ratio of 0.87, which is much lower than last time (1.23) but a comparison w the figure from 2 periods ago gives a more accurate picture. The new cases for 2 periods ago was 61,318 so a comparison w this period's new cases gives a rate of 1.08, which is much higher than last time (0.90).
    - 91,985 deaths in US, up from 88,507, a 3.9% increase which is a much smaller increase than last time (6.1%). The increases of the last 6 days give a doubling rate of about every 42.5 days. At this rate, the US projects to hit 100,000 deaths by about May 25. The US mortality rate is now 5.93%, down slightly from 5.96%.
    - 4,866,928 cases worldwide, up from 4,603,907, a 5.7% increase which is about the same increase as last time (5.6%). The new cases for this period were 263,021 compared to 242,216 for last time, for a ratio of 1.09 which is higher than last time (1.03) but a comparison w the figure from 2 periods ago gives a more accurate picture. The new cases for 2 periods ago was 235,616 so a comparison w this period's new cases gives a rate of 1.12, which is much higher than last time (0.86).
    - 320,470 deaths worldwide, up from 309,035, a 3.7% increase which is a smaller increase than last time (5.4%). The world mortality rate is 6.58%, which is lower than last time (6.71%). Italy's mortality rate is 14.17%, up from 14.12%, Belgium's is 16.33%, down from 16.38%, Spain's is 11.96%, about the same as last time (11.95%), France's is 15.69%, up from 15.34%, UK's is 14.11%, down from 14.36%, Germany's is 4.59%, up from 4.56% and Canada's is 7.36%, up from 7.32%.
    - 218 countries/territories/etc. have confirmed cases w suspected cases in 2 others (North Korea, Turkmenistan). There are only 10 countries, all of which are South Pacific Island republics, that have neither reported nor have suspected cases: Kiribati, Marshall Is., Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Is., Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu. The vast majority of countries have at least 1 death, w Central African Republic having the most cases w no reported deaths, 327.

    Rates of increase were smaller than last time but new cases rate were higher for both the US and the world. Cases continue to surge in Russia, Brazil, Peru, India and the Middle East and also are surging recently in Chile and Mexico.

    The Belmont Stakes just revealed its new date: June 20, at 1 1/8 miles rather than the standard 1 1/2 miles, and will now be the first leg of this bizarre triple crown season.

    The Kentucky Derby is rescheduled for Saturday, September 5th and the Preakness one month later on Saturday, October 3rd.

    That last 3/8 of a mile must have been full of corona.

    The 1 1/2 miles for the Belmont are always run very reluctantly, except for the fact it's the final leg of the Triple Crown. Many would have bypassed it if it had stayed at a mile and a half.

    WHO has agreed to conduct an inquiry into the global response to the CV-19 pandemic. The report is from CNN:

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/19/china...ntl/index.html

    This proposal, backed by global support from many nations, was passed w/o an objection. This despite China's previous heavy criticism of and threats to Australia for calling for this inquiry. The resolution did not mention China or any other country. Despite all this, I have no doubt that this was passed only because China agreed not to oppose it, evidently thinking they can spin everything its way and cover up or otherwise manage any incriminating evidence. We'll see what if anything comes of this. I'm not optimistic.
