Democrats should be putting together a virtual on-line convention right now. Start getting delegates certified with passwords and encrypted VPNs. This can be done. Many corporations have been holding virtual meetings for a long time. This is actually a Party function, not a government function. The Party can do this, if they want. They should and they can have a website with every delegate's vote for every ballot, so anybody can check the votes were not jiggered.

We are seeing Covid-19 turn into a very selective disease in the South and Midwest. It's going to kill a lot of stupid people who did not heed the isolation warnings. They are going to supply herd immunity for all the smart people who are staying indoors. But at a huge cost when they overwhelm the very sparse supply of ICU beds and ventilators in their areas. It's already happening in a parish just South of Baton Rouge with ZERO ICU beds: The have the fastest growing infection rate in the country. It's friggin' Italy down there!

Mardi Gras had a huge attendance with a lot of close contact, and then people scattered to all points of the compass, carrying virus with them.

Trump fans are following his every word no matter how stupid. I wonder if this is going to turn some swing states Blue, just from selective mortality.

True, however, social-distancing was not a thing on February 25, 2020. Hmm That was a failure of the Trump Administration not to recognize that Covid-19 was going to become major in the U.S. in spite of the Intel Community and the medical community telling Trump who doesn't read daily briefings, Covid-19 was going to be big in the U.S.

What's interesting here is that hospitals and doctor offices are beginning to lay off health care workers.

During a Pandemic, an Unanticipated Problem: Out-of-Work Health Workers

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/03/us/politics/coronavirus-health-care-workers-layoffs.html

It seems a lot of people are putting off going to the doctor due to being sacred of getting the coronavirus in their schedule appointments at the doctor office or normal appointments at hospitals. They're not going.

Who would have ever expected a pandemic to cause hospital and doctor office layoffs?

TV is reporting that there are, now, a plethora of antibody tests available. As far as I can tell there is only one that has been authorized, so far. Its kinda interesting. I went on to ebay and check for antibody tests. They have a pile of them for HIV but nothing for covid-19 or coronavirus. I also did a google search with little success. So, if they are out there they are not yet, I think, ready?

I also noticed that the market was going up with some strength which I took to mean that things may be getting better.

It also appears that dogs are safe from covid-19 there are instances that they have gotten it from humans but it was pretty benign

One wonders?

Amazingly Kudlow said, who could have known how fast it would spread? I have to conclude he is either a dumbazz or stupid as every epidemiologists knew how it was going to spread and how fast the potential was.

Mr Trump thinks he did great by shutting down Chinese travel and then did nothing. The fox was in the hen house, he closed the door behind the fox and then did nothing. Great plan Mr very stable genius.
