On Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading expert in infection diseases in the U.S., testified before Congress amid growing alarm surrounding the 80% spike in confirmed COVID-19 infections in the past two weeks. About halfway through the session, Sen. Elizabeth Warren asked Fauci for a direct assessment of where the country could be headed if the surge in cases is not abated. He did not mince words.
We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day, Fauci said. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around. And so I am very concerned.
The implications of Faucis alarming forecast are clear to anyone who lived through the previous three months: hospitals moving perilously close to over-capacity, states retrenching into strict quarantines, and an already tattered economy plunging deeper into the abyss. That potential future is especially dire for the entertainment industry, which already has record levels of unemployment as the pandemic all but halted production throughout film and television, effectively freezing the content pipeline and cutting off millions of livelihoods.

24 is so good. Youll enjoy it tremendously!
Too bad so sad

Hollywood pushes liberal crappola.
If that industry dies, Good.
We are not scheduled to go back to the office till the end of July. The message said it may be longer. The BofA office across the road (huge huge bldg) not until first of the year.
