Bad news re the virus:

Mysterious Heart Damage, Not Just Lung Troubles, Befalling COVID-19 Patients
https://khn.org/news/mysterious-heart-damage-not-just-lung-troubles-befalling-covid-19-patients/
While the focus of the COVID-19 pandemic has been on respiratory problems and securing enough ventilators, doctors on the front lines are grappling with a new medical mystery.

In addition to lung damage, many COVID-19 patients are also developing heart problems — and dying of cardiac arrest.

As more data comes in from China and Italy, as well as Washington state and New York, more cardiac experts are coming to believe the COVID-19 virus can infect the heart muscle. An initial study found cardiac damage in as many as 1 in 5 patients, leading to heart failure and death even among those who show no signs of respiratory distress.

That is so scary!! So far we only have 15 cases in our county, but still we have a lot to learn about this virus. Our stay at home order in Wisconsin is only till the 24th of this month. The Republicans requested that our Governor let Churches have services for Easter, gathering outside, 6 feet apart. Glad our Governor said absolutely not! Too bad he couldn't block the election, so now we have people out voting.

Yes, it makes no sense that they could not postpone the election!

And thank you SCOTUS.

The business with the heart is really scary.

The Sound of Music in the time of Covid. I enjoyed that.

Yes, the reality of it is so hard. I don't remember where I ran across some advice if you have covid19 - daughter has notes saying, "Take 20-30mg zinc per day - Have someone do chest physiotherapy, tap on your back. Five deep breaths, on 6th and 7th do a cough". I think it was from here:

Chris Cuomo has shared his perspective on having Covid-19 and some advice he received from a pulmonologist on how to fight it. I'm having computer problems but I think the segment is here:

This is a page which includes Chris Cuomo's video along with the UK doctor's video and two others. A good compilation:

A very damning expose released by New York Times yesterday concerning what Trump knew and when he knew it:
He Could Have Seen What Was Coming: Behind Trump’s Failure on the Virus

It's chilling.
