Corona News Bulletin

quote [ If people are infectious before they fall sick, then everyone should wear face masks “when going out in public, in one additional societal effort to slow the spread of the virus down,” says Thomas Inglesby of the John Hopkins Center for Health Security. ]

Sorry, feeling compelled to post a bunch of trending links for your information. Do you have anything to add? We're missing news on political solidarity.

The Bernie campaign has suspended GOTV efforts for Wisconsin and been using their email list to raise money for Covid related charities.

Alternatively, Joe Biden encouraging going forward with today's primary contests as of Apr 2nd.

To be fair to the Wisconsin Dem party, they did attempt to push back today's primary contest but were thwarted by the courts. This is going to get a lot of people sick.

The one about date roll is interesting. Two supply chains, eh? Two ways from tree to turd.

That said, I know a lot of people who would try very hard to not have to back one out at work.

Look forward to more austerity which absolutely will not contribute to greater deaths in future emergencies as they have to this one.

Meanwhile.... from the guy that just cut medicaid during a pandemic.

Well, they lifted the austerity rules for this year … and after weeks of accusations and national concepts it's nice to see that they finally got a mutual plan out the door.

For this year... But why would they do that? Is there something wrong with Austerity? Is the cornerstone of neoliberal economic policy flawed in some way?🤔😅
