White House officials also are planning to step up travel in coming weeks as a visual representation of reopening. Pence has traveled to Colorado and Wisconsin in recent days, and Trump is pushing aides to get him back on the road. There are still plenty of caution flags. I think we stamp it out if it does happen.
The death toll in Massachusetts eclipsed 2, on Wednesday, doubling from just a week earlier. About 16, people remained hospitalized across New York. Trump flatly promised Americans that there will no repeat of the national shutdown.
The American people have also been scarred by the daunting death toll and images of body bags piled up in refrigerated trailers. Moving from fear to acceptance will take confidence in government, medical professionals and. SEIU Healthcare Missouri, the union representing the workers, is seeking paid leave for employees who are forced to quarantine, as well as hazard pay, more masks and protective equipment and greater access to testing.

A church has helped her obtain vouchers to buy groceries at a discounted cost. Henry McMaster removed his statewide shutdown order, allowing local municipalities to make their own decisions as of noon on Tuesday. As questions about when and how to ease virus-control measures becomes increasingly politically charged, governors in the Deep South have resisted any appearance of synchronization, instead driving home their message that each state must make its own decision.
Georgia Gov. Fellow Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee announced that most businesses will begin resuming operations as soon as next week. Some other Republican leaders were taking smaller steps, like reopening their beaches. In the virus hot spot of Louisiana, Democratic Gov. But no one wants to coordinate.
Edwards, for one, notes neighboring states have less expansive outbreaks. Jerilyn Morgan picks snap peas at her vegetable farm on Monday in Dawson, Ga. Morgan can still sell from her farm, but no one is coming, she said. Restaurants can bring back dine-in service and movie theaters can reopen by Monday. Such moves runs counter to the advice of many experts and have left many businesses wary.
The lack of regional coordination also raises concerns that a loosening in one state — especially with insufficient testing — could lead to a spike in cases in another. But agreement would be difficult in a region with such disparate approaches.
The strategy stands in stark contrast to coordination else-. California, Oregon and Washington have agreed to synchronize how they will begin lifting their shelter-in-place restrictions. Seven states in the Northeast have done the same as have seven governors in the Midwest.
In the latter two regions, governors from both parties are involved. Edwards and Republican Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves have also had conversations because of the travel and business shared between New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. But Edwards. Louisiana still has more cases and far more deaths than any other state in the region.
While Trump says the move is designed to preserve jobs for American workers in an economy ravaged by the coronavirus, it is widely viewed by partisans on both sides of the immigration battle as driven more by politics than policy. The day pause, which Trump announced he had signed before his daily briefing Wednesday, leaves untouched the hundreds of thousands of temporary work visas the country issues each year.
And it includes a long list of exemptions, including for those who are currently in the country and those seeking entry to work as physicians and nurses, as well as the spouses and minor children of American citizens. Trump ran in promising to crack down on both illegal and legal immigration, making the case — disputed by many — that foreign workers compete with Americans for jobs and drive down wages because they are willing to accept lower pay.
Like other world leaders, Trump has restricted travel from much of the globe, including China and large swaths of Europe. With consulates closed, almost all visa processing by the State Department has been suspended for weeks. And Trump has used the virus to effectively end asylum at U. But the final version was far less drastic than advocates on both sides of the issue had expected after Trump posted a tweet late Monday that sent businesses, would-be immigrants and administration officials scrambling.
Craig Coopersmith was up early that morning as usual and typed his daily inquiry into his phone. One doctor replied that one of his patients had a strange blood problem. Despite being put on anticoagulants, the patient was still developing clots. And a third. Soon, every person on the text chat had reported the same thing. Based on early reports, the novel coronavirus appeared to be a standard variety respiratory virus, albeit a contagious and lethal one with no vaccine and no treatment.
Increasingly, doctors are reporting bizarre, unsettling cases. They describe patients with startlingly low oxygen levels — so low that they would normally be unconscious or near death — talking and swiping on their phones. Asymptomatic pregnant women suddenly in cardiac arrest. Patients who by all conventional measures seem to have mild disease deteriorating within minutes and dying at home.
The concern is so acute some doctor groups have raised the controversial possibility of giving preventive blood thinners to everyone with COVID — even those well enough to endure their illness at home. Blood clots, in which the red liquid turns gel-like, appear to be the opposite of what occurs in Ebola, Dengue, Lassa and other hemorrhagic fevers that lead to uncontrolled bleeding.
But they actually are part of the same phenomenon — and can have similarly devastating consequences. Errant blood clots of a larger size can break and travel to the brain or heart, causing a stroke or heart attack. On Saturday, Broadway actor Nick Cordero, 41, had his right leg amputated after being infected with the novel coronavirus and suffer-. And therefore, we are scared. Although acute respiratory distress syndrome still appears to be the leading cause of death in COVID patients, blood complications are not far behind, said Behnood Bikdeli, a fourth-year fellow at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, who helped anchor a paper about the blood clots in the Journal of The American College of Cardiology.
That recognition is prompting many hospitals to change the way they think about the disease and manage it. When the novel coronavirus first hit, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others put people with asthma at the top of their lists of those who might be the most vulnerable. Earlier this month, when New York state released data about the top chronic health problems of those who died of COVID, asthma was not among them.
Instead, they were almost all cardiovascular conditions. Some medical centers have begun giving all hospitalized COVID patients small doses of blood thinners as preventive measures, and many are adjusting doses upward for the most seriously ill. The challenge is the more. Another big mystery the doctors hope the blood issue will shed light on is why some maternity patients are collapsing during or after giving birth.
The second woman, 33, also underwent a Csection but the next day developed a cough that progressed to respiratory distress.

He probably mansplained about the Rayleigh law and wavelengths of various colored light.
And he was completely wrong. But he was apparently very convincing. They certainly looked cool. But they did nothing to help you see in fog. The only thing that helps at all in fog are lights that are positioned and aimed very low, toward the street. Under certain conditions, that can help. But honestly, fog is tough. Sometimes, you just have to slow way down or pull over and wait it out.
I mean, a yellow lens or anything other than a clear lens will reduce the sheer amount of light that gets through. So if you like yellow, Ross, go get a highlighter and have at it. Got a question about cars? Distributed by King Features Syndicate, Inc. Mike Parson has appointed a group of advisers consisting of this diverse array: white male Republicans.

The execution of her official duties, no doubt, will prompt loud cries from Republicans of partisan politicking during a major crisis. But why did they qualify in the first place while so many others have been turned away? This is exactly the kind of administrative blundering that independent oversight should have been able to prevent. The program was designed by Congress to help U.
At least 75 companies large enough to. A quarter of the companies had been in financial trouble well before the pandemic hit. The government had no business investing precious taxpayer money in them when far more worthy mom-and-pop operations were being turned away as funds ran out.
The Small Business Administration was responsible for administering the forgivable, low-interest loans under this program. Among eligible beneficiaries were several fast-food chains, which in some cases might be understandable because franchises often are independently owned and operated, making them truly small businesses. Trump is the one who declared upon signing this program into existence that independent oversight was unnecessary and that he would not abide by congressionally imposed restrictions.
Which means that, no matter how much the president tries to evade and deflect responsibility, this time, all fingers of blame for mismanagement point directly at him. In the past months, hard-working Americans have worked selflessly to keep us safe and our lives on track while braving the danger of losing their own lives. Doctors, nurses, medical personnel, grocery clerks, trash collectors, police, emergency personnel and the postal service personnel, and thankfully the staff of the Post-Dispatch, are the people who deserve our heartfelt gratitude.

But the Missouri Legislature has failed to enact the necessary legislation.
As other states are capturing large amounts of tax revenue generated by the ever-increasing internet retail sales made to their citizens, including sales made by Missouri retailers, Missouri and its many municipalities continue to lose millions. With quarantines and the lock-down of business in Missouri, the need to collect such online tax revenue is critical.
The Missouri Legislature needs to act as soon as possible to avoid continued loss of these revenues and to help local municipalities that are dependent on retail tax revenue to fund their governments. Kelly C. Louis University School of Law. He freely admitted that this video was produced by the White House using taxpayer funded personnel and resources. However, the Reality Starin-Chief and the sycophants who enable him have previously shown that he is neither responsible nor accountable for any wrongdoing.
These daily briefings should be nonpartisan and conducted by the experts in order to give the public truthful, helpful and reassuring information. Instead, Trump spends hours promulgating lies and disinformation, excoriating Joe Biden and the Democrats, crying about perceived slights by unadoring governors, patting himself on the back and ranting against his persecution by all enemies real or imagined. He should act like a man, admit his mistakes, rectify them and stop his petulant, self-centered and childlike antics.

The distance between rural homes and communities will likely cause a delay in the impact in rural populations compared with metropolitan areas. This will likely result in the most deadly and impactful time for our rural neighbors occurring while the national curves of impact are declining.
As the numbers impacted in our rural areas will be smaller, they could be lost in the declining curves, despite a significantly higher percentage of serious infections and deaths in rural areas. Perhaps with the exception of relatively few successful gaming tribes,. Chronic neglect and underfunding of Native American health care services has resulted in poorly prepared systems to handle such a pandemic. The public health infrastructure is minimal, and the communities are often quite poor.
One in six households on reservations are overcrowded, making social distancing an unapproachable ideal. The vast majority of these reservation-based hospitals and health centers were developed to provide only primary care services, generally without the resources or capacity to provide more than initial basic emergency care and immediate transportation to larger hospitals for acutely ill patients. Chronic shortages of health care providers, personal protective equipment and supplies further limit the.
Indeed, it is reported that the Indian Health Service has only 81 ventilators across their national network. This is an urgent crisis. We are in need of broad national leadership now to begin a focus on our rural area preparations.
I urge the immediate implementation of a national task force — made up of rural and tribal leaders, rural hospital executives, medical and public health experts, state and federal representatives — to meet this urgent need for planning and implementation of appropriate funding and public health measures. James Galloway, former medical director of two rural hospitals, was assistant U. Bush and Barack Obama.
Several hundred converged outside the state Capitol building and then continued to the mansion to demand that Gov. Mike Parson lift his stay-at-home order. Protesters are no heroes of civil disobedience Comparing crowds protesting quarantine to Rosa Parks is grotesque in its asininity. The calculation seems to when it comes to moral heroes.
If Trump actually believed these civil rights activist Rosa Parks is talked about as an American hero, states were in need of liberation, not solely as an African American he could do something about it. Places in need of liberation suffer one. The Jim Crow system she movable feast of a committee to reopen the economy — also serv- famously defied codified the notion that some Americans were ing as an organizer of protests fundamentally inferior to other against policies Trump himself Americans.

Banning Michiganders from purchasing gardening equipment and car seats for babies strikes me as heavy-handed. But this Rosa Parks comparison is grotesque in its asininity. She was a nonviolent warrior in a struggle to guarantee the rights and dignity of all Americans. Her struggle was grounded in the idea that all Americans are born with the equal right to life and liberty.
The quarantines are grounded in a not altogether dissimilar understanding: that we all deserve protection from a virus that disproportionately strikes our most vulnerable citizens and is now the second-leading cause of death in America, quickly closing in on heart disease.
And because of the nature of the crisis, it requires cooperation and sacrifices from everybody. As a matter of law and morality, these intentions matter. But we live in a time where inconveniences and hardships must be turned into acts of deliberate villainy by our political opponents or nefarious overlords. It takes a remarkable amount of cynicism to simultaneously impose hardships on American citizens and claim to be outraged by them.
Follow him on Twitter at JonahDispatch. Two scenes: Men with semiautomatic weapons strike a pose of protest in front of a state capitol building. These two frames will be among the lasting images of the COVID pandemic in America, reminding us of the juxtaposition of life and death that plagued our nation in For now, protesters enjoy the luxury of being disease-free — at least as far as they know. Estimates are that one in four of infected people are asymptomatic, thus some could be contagious without being sick.
While protesters play revolutionary in the springtime air, nurses, doctors and medical staff spin the chamber in a game of Russian Roulette as they try to heal the sick and comfort the dying. To law-abiding citizens who may be just as frustrated and angry, the protesters are reckless in the extreme. I suppose that protesting government orders has a certain allure. Job-loss reserves are dwindling quickly. In West. The protesters, in other words, have a point.
These include small-government groups, gun-rights activists and anti-science, anti-vaccine advocates. Meanwhile, doctors and nurses soldier on, despite a deplorable lack of personal protection equipment, or PPE. An online survey created by a grassroots group of doctors found that almost all of the facilities responding from 47 states and the District of Columbia had no supplies remaining of at least one form of PPE. Somehow, we have to hang together — but I hope not for much longer.
The tunnel of doom is beginning to brighten, as we await more testing and lower rates of death and infection. For a moment, it felt like we were all on the same team, all striving together toward kindness and safety. Now, like virus particles attaching to host cells, some are set on injecting the country with political toxins. Who wins, as Trump would want to know? Where do you stand?

Around 85 million people visited theme parks in Orlando and Tampa in , the most recent year available. Theme park resorts are not just rides, but hotels, sit-down dining, fast-food, nightclubs, retail and TV and film production.
And there is also the issue of taming long, serpentine lines not conducive to social distancing. Then there are the rides themselves. Sprouls said it is possible that every other seat and ever other row in the cars will be vacant, but then there is the question of how often they are cleaned. Under normal circumstances, one guest gets on immediately after another gets off — how can that be done safely before the virus is contained? Theme park closures have led to the temporary layoffs of tens of thousands of workers in central Florida.

The talk of a fifth measure is running into early opposition from conservatives, chiefly Senate Republicans, who warn the spending spree cannot go on indefinitely. The GOP senators saw their request to replenish a Paycheck Protection Program nearly double in size, as Democrats persuaded President Donald Trump to support additional funding for communities with fewer banks, health providers and a national testing initiative.
Such a suggestion is highly unlikely and governors delivered swift blowback. McConnell, so everyone gets their job back? But the people you put in charge of reopening, the governors and the states, should declare bankruptcy? The Senate is scheduled to return May 4. The Senate passed the bill by voice vote on Tuesday, and the House is expected to pass it overwhelmingly in a roll call vote Thursday. Richard Eberhardt walks along a corridor last week at a nursing home in Kaysesberg, France.
Countries around the world are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic with the dilemma of leaving the elderly and others near death in enforced solitude or whether to allow some personal contact with relatives. After so many frail and elderly nursing home residents had been held in seclusion from their loved ones in the first weeks of the lockdown to contain the coronavirus pandemic, Wilmes said her government decided to allow one visitor — in good health — per person.
Her initiative has been repealed in most of the country and new meetings have been called on the issue. Belgium is hardly alone in struggling with the emotional and ethical issue of whether to. Businesses would have to shutter again, and people would be even more afraid to venture out until a vaccine is found. As companies go belly-up, a domino effect ensues: Workers are not rehired, suppliers are not paid, and fear rises about who will be next to fall.
Flooding will occur. From Belgium to Turkey, several other countries did the same. But as the confinement drags on, some are rethinking that. In recent days, France, Britain and Belgium have proposed relaxing the rules to ease the pain of families, and their locked-away loved ones. In the U. The federal agency that regulates nursing homes urges them to designate separate facilities to keep COVID residents away from those who have tested negative. South Africa has begun to take.
The issue has struck a chord, since few fears in life are more universal than being alone as one dies. They are afraid, afraid of dying alone. I realize it is difficult and that loneliness weighs heavy. France is trying to find a middle ground. Marc Bourquin of the Hospital Federation of France, which oversees public nursing homes, said there needed to be a way for all elderly to have a visitor, especially if the situation lasts for months.
We cannot condemn these people to never see their loved ones again. Rystad Energy predicts that more than U. Firms and consumers are teetering on the financial edge. As people lose jobs, they stop paying their rent or mortgage, which can lead to eviction and a bad credit rating that drags them down for years.
They lose health insurance and possibly their car. Often, they lose hope. This is the scenario the nation needs to avoid, economists say, and policymakers could be doing a much better job to trying to prevent this.

A farmer had donated the eggs to the church. Sider figured it would take a few days to get rid of them. Instead, they were gone in 28 minutes. All of this puts consumers on edge, making them hesitant to spend — even beyond fears about the coronavirus. Treasury will help, but that money is likely to go to rent, food and medicine. The unemployment benefits Congress approved will run out at the end of July — right about when many landlords expect people to pay full rent again plus any rent they missed this spring.

Companies who take part have to rehire people by June 30, a date when a lot of employees could return to work, but businesses such as restaurants probably will not be able to pay their full staffs if they can fill only half their tables.

The consequences may be worse for the Medicare program, which in this report is estimated to deplete its reserves in The expected recession, projected by economists to be the deepest since the s, will mean fewer people paying into Social Security and Medicare. Compounding the problem, the pandemic will impose heavier caseloads on the health program, which provides care for those 65 and older.
More than 20 million workers have been laid off so far. A year is no small sacrifice for older workers who are at or near their peak earning capacity. The impact on Medicare spending may be harder to sort out, said Fred Riccardi, president of the Medicare Rights Center advocacy group.
Hospitalizations will raise Medicare spending. Older people are also the most likely to need hip and knee replacements and other procedures now paused, and that would tend to lower projected Medicare spending.
The dates are the years that both programs will exhaust their trust funds. When that happens, Social Security will have to cut benefits which many recipients depend on, or lawmakers will have to raise the payroll tax. Medicare would have to cut its payments to hospitals, nursing. Both benefit programs need to make adjustments to become financially sound.
But the choices of cutting benefits or raising taxes to bring that about remain politically unpalatable to most lawmakers. Instead, Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has called for expanding both programs. On Social Security Biden would increase benefits, especially for people of modest incomes, while raising more revenue from upper-income earners.
President Donald Trump pledged during the campaign not to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits. Before the pandemic, he said in an interview that his administration would be taking a look at benefit programs, but the White House press office pushed back on suggestions he was opening the door to cuts.
