    It's hard to say. I think there are deaths that are being counted when they shouldn't be and I think there are a lot of deaths that aren't being counted because it makes the governors look bad (like the 3,000 deaths in your link that are "still under investigation"). I'd say it lays somewhere in the middle.

    Only Washington and New Jersey still ban church services after Trump calls for Memorial Day reopening.....


    After President Trump threatened on Friday to “override” governors keeping tight restrictions on in-person church services, only Washington and New Jersey retained their all-out bans.


    In both states, governors framed their decisions as a resistance to the president’s judgment during the coronavirus pandemic. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee issued a rebuke to Trump shortly after the president said during a press conference that it was “not right” for governors to list liquor stores and abortion clinics but not churches as “essential” businesses.


    The governor’s office noted in a statement that, although Trump spoke strongly, he has no actual authority to make governors open churches.....snip~

    LOL these 2 deviates still haven't figured out what Trump did. In any case. Trump should let Barr deal with them.

    Justice Department slams Nevada governor for 'unequal' treatment of churches in reopening guidelines ….


    Nevada's current reopening strategy allows for restaurants and other businesses to reopen at 50% capacity. Hair salons are allowed to reopen with no limitations on customers. Churches, however, are still required to keep their congregations capped at 10 people or fewer, in keeping with Sisolak's stay-at-home order issued in March.....snip~

    No need for a letter. Just hook the Demo up.

"Today I am identifying houses of worship, churches, synagogues and mosques as essential places that provide essential services. Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential but have left out churches and other houses of worship. It's not right. So I'm correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential."


    "I call upon governors to allow our churches and places of worship to open right now. If there's any question, they're going to have to call me but they're not going to be successful in that call. These are places that hold our society together and keep our people united. The people are demanding to go to church and synagogues, go to their mosque. Many millions of Americans embrace worship as an essential part of life. The ministers, pastors, rabbis, imams and other faith leaders will make sure their congregations are safe as they gather and pray. I know them well, they love their congregations, they love their people. They don't want anything bad to happen to them or to anybody else," he continued. "The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important, essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend. If they don't do it, I will override the governors. In America we need more prayers, not less." …..snip~

    Looks like Trump will start making things difficult for those Democrat Governors. About time.
    Anybody can worship anywhere at any time: a gathering of close up people is not essential. "Church attendance" is NOT essential.

    Church attendance is essential and especially protected. See: 1A

    Supreme Court orders states to respond to churches' appeals to reopen.....


    The Supreme Court is ordering the governors of Illinois and California to respond to two separate appeals filed by churches seeking to block enforcement of stay-at-home orders.


    Justices Brett M. Kavanaugh and Elena Kagan, who respond to circuit court appeals from the Midwest and the West Coast, respectively, say the responses are due by Thursday evening.

    That's today. Govenor Fatbody and Newsome had better respond.

    That is just your opinion. To many it is the core of their lives.
    Some people say their yoga workouts have changed their lives.
    Some people depend on their substance abuse meetings to keep them straight.

    Who are you to judge and who are you to make decisions for them?
