Update (1920ET): Johns Hopkins University just updated its database of COVID-19 infections…and the death toll in the US has climbed north of 7k after US states reported 1,314 new deaths on Friday, the biggest one-day jump in the US since the outbreak began. The CDC also confirmed 31,160 new cases, the biggest one-day jump in cases, bringing the US total to 276,037.

If you squint really hard…it almost looks like the curve is flattening out…

Terrified Americans can at least take solace in the fact that Congress – as Mitch McConnell just confirmed – is already working on coronavirus rescue bill No. 4…while most Americans are still waiting for the help from bills 1,2 and 3.
