  1. Mostly on the East Coast, true. One would think that their complete closure has helped to limit the mass transmission from the coasts inland, aside from outbreak pockets. That idea will be tested in the coming weeks, as travel numbers have already spiked.
  2. The U.S. quietly slipped over 80,000 deaths sometime in the last 36 hours, at the same time as many states are loosening restrictions. I've been a downer about this for a long time, even as friends and acquaintances accused me of 'fear-mongering' and 'negativity' - but this will easily turn over 200,000 more American lives before this time next year, in my opinion.
  3. Our brains need the stimulation whilst otherwise being battered into mush by the present state of things.
  4. I, for one, love your writing style. It's weirdly poetic.
  5. 3,000 dead Americans a day within less than a month. A 11/9/01 or a 5/6/1944 every single day for God knows how long. Lunacy.
  6. Same. I've been largely tuned out since this all went down but this just seems beyond the pale.
  7. US hits 40k dead. A month ago we had about 300 or so. We’re #1! USA! USA! USA!
  8. It's a depressing mix of willful ignorance, scientific birdbrains, Constitutional half-knowledge, and American 'liberty' (gun / Confederate / nationalist) culture.
  9. In the U.S., the Republican far-right (and that's who it is - make no mistake, they only protest against Democratic governors and they do so conspicuously armed) have decided that they are going to try and forcibly 're-open' states by marching on capitol buildings with semi-automatic rifles.
  10. The Gang of Four, who've helped spearhead the Misinformation Revolution that directs the Red, White and Blue Guards.
  11. One look at New York City, along with those numbers, more or less confirms this. I'm far more bearish on the economic outlook globally than many seem to be for this reason. Premature / unexpected deaths are far, far worse economically than what has been done via mandatory shutdowns.
  12. To be honest, if I were the PL I would be looking to renegotiate whatever advertisement or TV contracts I could for the upcoming season. The bounce-back effect in terms of demand for the PL product globally is going to be enormous and audiences should be at an all-time high.
  13. In the United States, it's pretty obvious.
  14. Nearly 2,000 died in the U.S. yesterday alone. And this very telling statistic helps to put how depressed those numbers actually are in perspective: https://gothamist.com/news/surge-number-new-yorkers-dying-home-officials-suspect-undercount-covid-19-related-deaths "The FDNY says it responded to 2,192 cases of deaths at home between March 20th and April 5th, or about 130 a day, an almost 400 percent increase from the same time period last year. (In 2019, there were just 453 cardiac arrest calls where a patient died, according to the FDNY.) That number has been steadily increasing since March 30th, with 241 New Yorkers dying at home Sunday — more than the number of confirmed COVID-19 deaths that occurred citywide that day. On Monday night, the city reported 266 new deaths" The ripple-effect and under-counted deaths from COVID-19 are absolutely as bad or worse than the virus itself.
  15. Our president is an absolute ghoul.
