The 2010 census shows Lincoln County with 20,000 people. Unfortunately, one has died from the CCP virus and our prayers go out to that person's family and friends. Looks like that means that the death rate currently is 0.005 percent. Since we get an update here on KVT nearly every day with scary headlines about cases, deaths, and how incompetent the U.S. response has been, I'll keep checking back for more gloom.
