Today, the World Health Organization made a chilling announcement about the coronavirus pandemic:
“We still have a long way to go in this pandemic,” said Tedros Adhanom-Ghebreyesus, director-general of the WHO at a briefing in Geneva. “In the last 24 hours, there have been 106,000 cases reported to WHO – the most in a single day since the outbreak began. Almost two-thirds of these cases were reported in just four countries.”
The number is scary, but why is it chilling? Because this happens to be the same day all 50 US states were partially opened.
Strap on your face masks, folks. We may be in for a wild ride.
Especially with the man occupying the White House. He’s too busy acting a fool on Twitter, hurling playground-style insults, and threatening states. He’s pathetic and dangerous.
Last night, I watched a report on CNN that made me understand this new path we’re on will be no picnic. Using a fluorescent solution on her hands, CNN correspondent Randi Kaye was the guinea pig in a “contact spreading” experiment while sitting with others at a restaurant table. Using ultraviolet light, we’d see everything she touched and to whom she passed her “germs”. Using the same solution and UV light, they showed how easy — and how far — someone could spread droplets through a simple cough.
Please. Watch the video before making a jailbreak for your favorite restaurant. You may think twice about going. Or maybe not. Sorry. Wishful thinking.
