Not for me (on FF), works fine.
But my FF mobile has sometimes problems.
It works fine for me too. Tis a worthy Altered Map too, rarely seen round these parts no more.
I made a map of the US counties (colored in green) that have more people than there are global cases of COVID-19.
Each of those counties has more than 300,000 people living there?
You get to 300k relatively quickly.
My home district (not exactly comparable I think, should be smaller) has 220k people, and that with 2 cities of 60k and 20k in it, most others being really small cities and villages.
So I wouldn't be surprised.
Looks about right to me. Most if not all of those areas host a major city with suburbs.
So, Colorado obviously has Denver. What's the other city though? Also the city in Kansas other than Kansas City and the cities in Oklahoma? The inland city in Washington? In Oregon, Portland and what other town?
Only 4 of the (ceremonial) counties in England have a population less than that (Herefordshire, Isle of Wight, Rutland, City of London)
I suppose he's comparing to local authorities, which in England tend to be smaller than traditional counties.
The difference, I'd guess, is that local authorities in Britain can be drawn almost at-whim by the central government, while in the United States, it is very difficult to redraw municipal or county borders without the consent of those governments, so who will tend to resist attempts to reduce their power or tax-base by dividing them into smaller, more manageable units.
No offense but I'm not really in a position to google all of them for you the Washington one is probably Spokane, Colorado I'd imagine is Denver and Colorado springs but remember also that we're talking counties here, not just cities. Most states are going to have at least a few urban areas with sprawl.
Colorado Springs has 470,000 people. The other one in Kansas is Wichita (city of 390,000), and Oklahoma has Oklahoma City (650,000) and Tulsa (400,000). The one in Oregon has Eugene (170,000), but it's a big county, so it probably has lots of other towns. The city of Spokane has 220,000 people, but the county has 510,000.
Wikipedia has a list of counties in every state, which you can sort by population. See here for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_counties_in_Alabama
If you really care about finding out which county is which, I used this map: https://mapchart.net/usa-counties.html
Too much work for me
He did answer every question you asked!
I know! I'm grateful. I am saying it would have been too much work for me to find for myself.
So UK and Ireland seem to be behind, based on the measures taken.
Yeah, the UK's policy was to intentionally infect as many people as possible. Unofficially the government's black monk, Mr. Cummings, is said to have been fine with ‘old people’ dying. They suddenly seem to have changed their mind when they've realised that people surnamed Mountbatten or Windsor can get infected too.
You cannot shop for food in UK ?
The shopping cart symbol stands for if there's a lockdown or not.
That symbol choice might not be very intuitive, had to look more than twice myself.
It's the UK. It's not really food, just fuel.
