Well, you know the Repub attitude about health care, "If you get sick, please die quickly,"
I would add, "Please suffer in proportion to all the people whom you doomed to suffer and die." Take your time. Be sure to infect Pence, Barr, Pompous Ass Pompeo, and Devos on your way out. Oh yeah. Take the entire cabinet with you, too....and your SCOTUS stooges. Just don't forget to spend plenty of time in ICU, entubated, catheterized, and stuck full of IVs.

If the man get so sick that it can't go to the second/third debate, will they simply be cancelled? done over Zoom? Or will Pence take his place?

I don't know when it comes to debates. I guess if Rump were incapacitated to the point of replacement that could happen. It seems more likely that the whole circus would collapse.

Default Fun with statistics

The Congressional Resource Service's American War and Military Operations Casualties: Lists and Statistics (Updated July 29, 2020 ) has the following statistics for the US military in WWII:

Number serving 16,112,566

Battle deaths 291,557

Other deaths* 113,842

Total deaths 405,399

*World War II was the first war in which there were more American battle casualties than deaths from other causes, such as accidents, disease, and infections.

I note a couple of curiosities.

First, in six months COVID-19 has killed over half as many Americans as military service members died in the line of duty in World War II.

Second, the percentage of those serving in the military in WWII who died in the line of duty is just over 2.5 percent, while the case-fatality rate from COVID-19 in the US is 2.9 percent. So, it's riskier for my fellow-countrymen to catch the virus, than it was to serve in the military in WWII.

According to the Dear Leader of the USA the battle dead are losers. Not strong enough to pull through like the Furher of the free world.

The new daily cases surpassed 1,000 for both New York and New Jersey. The 2nd wave of Covid infections has officially arrived to the Northeast regions.

From a CNN report yesterday,
Quote:
Fourteen states reported more than 1,000 new cases Tuesday. California, Florida, Kansas, Texas and Wisconsin had more than 2,000 infections.
Also in yesterday's news, this AP story got my attention. I didn't get around to posting it until now.

Wisconsin activates field hospital as COVID keeps surging
Quote:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin health officials announced Wednesday that a field hospital will open next week at the state fairgrounds near Milwaukee as a surge in COVID-19 cases threatens to overwhelm hospitals.

Wisconsin has become a hot spot for the disease over the last month, ranking third nationwide this week in new cases per capita over the last two weeks. Health experts have attributed the spike to the reopening of colleges and K-12 schools as well as general fatigue over wearing masks and socially distancing.
<snip>
The move also came as a state judge was considering a lawsuit seeking to strike down Evers' mandate that masks be worn in enclosed public spaces. The governor on Tuesday issued new restrictions on the size of indoor public gatherings through Nov. 6.
<snip>
The hospital will accept patients from across Wisconsin but is designed to provide low-level care, and it will accept only patients who have already been hospitalized elsewhere for at least 24 to 48 hours, according to the state Department of Administration. Patients who qualify will be transported to the facility by ambulance. The facility will not accept walk-ins. Palm said the facility will be ready to accept 50 patients on its first day.
