    Re: Covid-19

    This just in.

    The World Health Organization has announced that dogs cannot contract Covid-19. Dogs previously held in quarantine can now be released. To be clear, WHO let the dogs out.
    Let the kids play.

It's minor in the overall scheme of things, but we're pretty sad.

            Yeah, I know.

            Soccer is fun. He's supposed to go to a Vegas tournament in May, but we'll see if that happens.

              I never liked playing or watching soccer, neither did my kids. One tried but gave up quickly. I guess whatever floats your boat.

              That said, hope everything is good by May and you get the Vegas soccer tour.

                      I don't think it is harder for them to get it; I think the issue is that they tend to not get as sick - meaning they become effective vectors for virus spread.

                        Well yes anyone can be a carrier. I had read that it was also harder to contract but in either case nor much of a difference if they don’t get as sick.

                        For those that don’t know you don’t have to show symptoms to be a carrier, which is the reason for the 14 day quarantine

                            Inside Jared Kushner’s coronavirus research: a wide net on a giant Facebook group
                            The president’s son-in-law and senior adviser takes a leading role in a variety of Trump challenges, this time responding to the escalating coronavirus outbreak.
                            Karlie Kloss's father asked a Facebook group of ER docs for help combatting the coronavirus. He said he had a "direct channel to person now in charge at White House." Jared had apparently asked him for help. Karlie Kloss is married to Kushner's brother.
                            He fired the entire pandemic team because Obama put them there, then gave his son-in-law his 8th world changing assignment. Jared's plan was apparently to get his brother's wife's dad to ask around on Facebook if anyone could help.

                            What an utter, epic, historical, disaster and embarrassment this administration is.

                              I don't have a MBA, but giving advice that could directly lead to the death of your most loyal customers probably isn't smart business sense.

                              https://www.esquire.com/news-politic...ign=nl19678221

                              The people most at risk in the novel coronavirus pandemic are the elderly and those with immunodeficiency. That's why we all have a duty to practice social distancing, even if we are younger and unlikely to bear the brunt of all this. We owe it to people in gravest danger. In America, many of those at-risk older folks watch a lot of Fox News. In some cases, it's their main or only source of information. But even over the last day or so, the network has scarcely changed the tune on its opinion shows, even as Fox employees are now starting to work from home.

                              The morning and primetime shows are still downplaying the threat of the virus, occasionally suggesting it's some sort of plot orchestrated against the president. (By the Deep State? In coordination with, uh, 60 million Italians? And the first lady of Canada?) The network is offering people misinformation or even outright conspiracies, often by booking guests who have zero expertise in any field beyond kissing Donald Trump's ass. In short, the Fox News Channel is an enterprise that seems determined to place its core customer base in mortal danger. Beyond the sociopathy, this seems bad for business.

                              We had one example last night on the television program hosted by Sean Hannity, just the man you want serving up fact-like objects regarding a global pandemic. The superstar peddler of resentment and paranoia hosted a succession of people who know nothing about pandemic disease to yell at each other about who's peddling "Chinese propaganda." Then he had on Tom Cotton, United States Senator from Arkansas, and one of the most brazenly irresponsible people in elected office today.

                              They are conspiracizing about Hunter Biden after weeks of completely failing their viewers on the actual defining issue of the day. Not only that, Cotton was determined to hit every insane note. He had a fair-enough critique of Joe Biden's comments on China—they were, indeed, stupid—but then it was on to vague insinuation of Biden corruption; unproven claims about the effectiveness of Trump's travel ban on China; framing the pandemic, without evidence, as an attack on America by "the Chinese Communist Party." Using smoke and mirrors that fans of The Emails (2016) will recognize, Cotton attempted to tie Hunter Biden's overseas business connections to coronavirus.
