The email was prompted in response to someone who was delaying a press release by two weeks. The release was about helping small businesses in their fight in these times of COVID-19.
Two weeks ago on March 16th the US had 4,434 cases, 983 of them added that day and there were a total of 87 recorded deaths
Today we have 244,877 cases, 29,874 added just today and a total of 6,070 deaths
i.e. in two weeks US COVID-19 deaths are 50% higher than recorded cases two weeks ago.
I can think of no reason to delay.
