While the leader of the free world makes plans to open parts of the country, if not all of the country, up for Easter Sunday church service, the US is number one in the world in Covid-19 cases.

The country is experiencing exponential growth in the number of deaths caused by the Coronavirus. In one month, the number of deaths went from 1to1000. In the last 48 hours, the total number of deaths double from 1000 to 2000.

Meanwhile, leadership amid this crisis is coming from the nation’s governors.
