Coronavirus News

I have to admit that I’ve been following the coronavirus news a bit more closely than is probably good for me. Some of it is amusing though. And I’ve got a condition that makes me more likely to catch something like this than most people, so I need to be careful. There haven’t been too many cases here in NJ yet, but it looks like NYC is starting to see more. I’d like to get into NYC and do some stuff this month, now that the weather is getting a little nicer, but I’m not sure it’s worth the risk right now.

On the lighter side, this article about how the rich are preparing for and dealing with coronavirus is amusing. (And a little annoying, of course, though at this point my capacity for outrage about the excesses of the 1% is pretty much exhausted.)

In the “news you can use” category, here’s an article about how to stop touching your face. I will admit that I cannot stop touching my face. I think I may have to start wearing a cone of shame to work. Or maybe a nice welding helmet?

And looking at this from a higher level, here’s something from Bill Gates, and something from Think Global Health. I don’t have much to say about either of these articles, but they’re interesting.
