What a morning!
Banks are being investigated (a new investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists says JPMorgan, Deutsche Bank AG and HSBC Holdings Plc were among the global banks who “kept profiting from powerful and dangerous players” in the past two decades even after the U.S. imposed penalties on these financial institutions) and Covid deaths hit 200K (not 200 MILLION like Joe Biden stated).
A note on Covid. The US Center for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) estimated that 150, 000 to 575,000 people died from (H1N1) pandemic virus infection in the first year of the outbreak.
- 80% of the virus-related deaths were estimated to occur in those < 65 years of age.
So, Covid, the elderly killer, is near the lower end of the CDC’s range on US deaths.
