We are now five days into a steady decline in U.S. statistics, despite a major counting adjustment in Illinois that produced a new daily record for cases in that state. We suspect a counting issue because Illinois also had a good day in week-to-week death counts.

Watch out tomorrow as Wednesday is the weekly max for deaths, as Thursday or Friday are for cases.

We’ll be back tomorrow with COVID-19 updates and information that came through overnight.

Keeping with our Navy theme, here’s Spike Jones and “Sailor with the Navy Blue Eyes.”
