COVID-19 (Average) vs Other Causes of Death (Actual) in the U.S. – Animated Data Graph

Love it. The virus had a hard time beating out cancer there for a little while. That’s encouraging. Also, I like that I now have to worry less about dying in all the other possible ways, including my obsessive worry of getting stabbed in the back of the head waiting in the checkout line at a liquor store. — Paul
