Conversely, grimly, deaths from the lockdown have moved from projection to reality and are rising.

RI’s curve is approaching ZERO! States across America are opening without problem, protesters are allowed large gatherings, jobs and the economy are booming nationally… yet, our RI summer remains locked down. Why?
