Adam Schlesinger Dies of Coronavirus Complications at 52

For me, this chart is the most alarming of the latest batch. US & UK daily death tolls are accelerating in a straight line on a log scale chart, i.e still increasing exponentially. ~All other countries had begun slowing the rate of increase in deaths by now.

NEW: CA has 8,155 confirmed positive cases of #COVID19 . 1,855 of those who have tested positive are in our hospitals. 774 of those patients are in the ICU. This disease can impact anyone. Take this seriously. #StayHomeSaveLives 

Opinion: We must hold politicians responsible for deaths they could have prevented

Now onto *daily new deaths*: • Daily death tolls flattening in Italy & Spain: each new day brings fewer deaths • But in UK & US the death toll is accelerating. More dead every day than the last, and rate of increase also rising Live charts:

I’m going to REPEAT. REPEAT. REPEAT. The most important thing we can do is STAY HOME and practice physical distancing. That’s how we flatten the curve.

President Trump says the coming days of the coronavirus epidemic "are going to be horrific"

California Gov. Gavin Newsom's message to states that have not issued stay-at-home orders: "What are you waiting for? What more evidence do you need? … There’s no greater intervention, period, full stop, none, than physical distancing."

Occupants were unruly since morning&made unreasonable demand for food items. They misbehaved&abused staff at Quarantine Centre.Also they started spitting all over&on persons working/attending them incl doctors.They also started roaming around hostel building:CPRO Northern Railway

The Trump administration waited too long to treat covid-19 as a crisis. So did everyone. If Trump had called for a two-week lockdown in late January rather than the travel ban (which Dems opposed), he would have been called a dictator by the same Dems now calling him derelict.

Scoops of the Week

LA received 170 broken ventilators from the national stockpile. Rather than complaining, we put them on a truck, drove them up overnight, and had @Bloom_Energy  get to work fixing them. Monday they‘ll back in LA--fixed. That’s the spirit of CA.

President Trump today at the White House said to me: “Be nice. Don't be threatening.” I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job. My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward.
