Imagine that each circle is a face.
10,000 dead, April 3rd
20,000 dead, April 9th (10k/6 days)
30,000 dead, April 14th (10k/5 days)
40,000 dead, April 18th, (10k / 4 days)
50,000 dead, April 23rd, (10k /5 days)
60,000 dead, April 29, (10k/5 days)
~The Vietnam War killed about this many Americans.~
70,000 dead, May 4th, (10k/5days)
80,000 dead, May 8th, (10k/4days)
90,000 dead, May 16th, (10k/8days)
100,000 dead, May 26th, (10k/10days)
(That’s about the population of my city.)
