These latest pandemic challenges come as the daily national death rate from the virus top 3000 people a day the last few days for the first time since the pandemic began. Think about it. That happens to be about the same number of people who were killed on 9 11. We're now experiencing a 9 11 every day in terms of Americans getting killed. But unlike 9, 11, this is no surprise attack.
