On the plus side, President Trump noted there's a number of tests being conducted for therapeutics and vaccines.
The US has officially passed Communist China with the most cases but no one believes the latter's numbers are anything close to accurate.

Hoboken case figures bump up again
16 new cases were added today in a late Thursday release bringing the total number of cases of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Coronavirus to the area of five dozen.

Mayor Ravi Bhalla asks for residents to go out only when necessary and avoid others as anyone could be a carrier.

Let's hope President Trump will continue to do the right things for America even when local low-level officials don't.
