The Washington Post wants you to know that the COVID-19 crisis is poised to get worse, even with two vaccines being distributed and administered as we write this. But WaPo really wanted to drive home the point for the holidays, and thus calculated that every time you listen to Bing Crosby’s rendition of “White Christmas,” about five people die from the coronavirus.
Every time you listen to Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas,” about five people have died from the coronavirus between the beginning and the end of the song. https://t.co/Rpuc9mDsuz

Jesus dude, we get it – you don't like Christmas music.

Same amount of people die in the amount of time it takes to sing ‘Back That Thang Up’ too.

How many during “WAP”?

About the same.
Both songs clock in at the three minute and some change mark.
White Christmas and Wet Ass Pussy are equal in the body counts that occur in their duration.

And about 350 people have died not of Covid.

When everything is classified as a covid death, that number seems low.

Studies show "White Christmas" is listened to 2.7 million times a day in December. At five people dead per playing, over the span of 18 days so far, that would mean 243 million people have died from the coronavirus.
This has not happened.

Dean Martin's version is 7 seconds shorter, and The Drifters came in at 9 seconds shorter. A fuller "analysis" is necessary but I need grant money.

Jeff Bezos made them say this so that we completely kill off small businesses and all of his competitors. Keep them living in fear is the name of the game now.

China Daily has paid the Washington Post $4.6 million for insets since 2016, which means 20 Uyghurs die every time you read a WaPo article from the headline to the inevitable correction https://t.co/cJifXlWgNP

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. All the media does is sell fear. They are going to be responsible for more suicides.

Joe Biden will fix it all by having us wear masks for 100 days, at which time there won’t be any more stories about COVID.
