    Omg, no wonder why it's spreading so quickly too. Between systemically poor regions having a heightened risk of contracting the virus, now people without money or insurance can't even get tested. They don't go to the hospital with mild symptoms because it leaves people in crippling debt, so it gets worse, and they spread it to more people.

    It's a cluster F in the states.

    whats really scary is the numbers we see are the known cases. How many are out there infected that we dont know about because they arent showing up as a positive test.

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, Eichel, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Gusev, RThomas, Kucherov, Nugent-Hopkins, Burns, Zuccarello, Fabbri, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Yandle, Point, Konecny, TBertuzzi, NSchmaltz, Vrana

    I can't imagine trying to navigate the private health care system in the US during a pandemic. If you are poor you are just straight up screwed (this has always been the case), but even people who previously had insurance through their employer may not now if they are out of work. I read somewhere millions have lost their health insurance during the pandemic. It's really sad that the people who need help the most won't get it.
