On headlines:  There has been a decided shift over the last couple of weeks on headlines.  I began to chart them because it was mind boggling, literally hundreds of headlines all about C-19; and occasionally something else would break through.  Now, largely due to Trump, almost half the headlines are actually the politics of C-19.  I am not going to record all the headlines anymore.  Instead, because they cycle seems to be finally shifting with re-opening, I will only include C-19 effects, and aftereffects like the economic woes created by it.

Maine infected                 2,013                     2,074                    
Increase Infected            65                           61

Maine Dead                       77                           78
Increase Dead                   2                              1

Whilst I isolated and worked on this, 1 more of my fellow Mainers died from C-19.
