    It’s claimed in New York City that about 18,000 people died from the pandemic during it’s siege of the city. During the same time the total recorded deaths were about 32,000 for the city. It happened quickly March – June. The population density is 26,000 per square mile. The American psyche is getting increasingly hostile across the nation. Edgy.
