A cluster of cases (+120) appearing in China's Jilin Province has sparked fears that new lockdowns could be on the horizon. The province is home to about 108 million people. As of this post the US has done over 13,398,000 tests. Assuming our population is exactly 330,000,000 that would be 4.06% of Americans have received a test. Of course this isn't the case because some people have been tested more than once; but just a little perspective. The car rental company Hertz has filed for bankruptcy protection. The company's reasoning being debt and hardships brought on by the virus.
