    Remi, one personal data point to assist analysis: an elderly acquaintance was in the hospital a month before succumbing to complications from COVID. That reinforces the view that even with improved knowledge and care, we should see deaths rise from late July into August+ based on the late June hospitalization inflection point.

    The chart on page 9 suggests consumer spending is about to roll over. Bigly. Thank you
