We are wearing the masks in public settings where 6 feet of separation from strangers cannot be

1.7 million "confirmed cases" in the USA as of today with 100,000 deaths (6%). So I predict double by the 4th of July: 3.4 million cases, 200,000 dead. And that does not address the extent of harm to infectees who live.
I hope to be wrong.
