    To limit the spread of the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19, at least 27 countries on every inhabitable continent have closed their borders to certain foreign nationals. Cases of infection have surpassed 150,000, and the outbreak shows no signs of slowing down. As cases increase across the globe, countries have amplified their mitigation and containment measures to limit exposure risks, including reducing large gatherings, implementing quarantine restrictions and prohibiting people from entering. Some countries, including South Africa and the Czech Republic, banned foreign nationals from high-risk areas, and Kenya imposed a ban on foreign nationals traveling from any country with reported cases. Kenya had only one case as of Sunday, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), and along with banning foreign nationals, all citizens and those with valid residence permits who enter the country must self-quarantine for 14 days. Save for a few exceptions, El Salvador, India, Israel, Denmark, Poland, Ukraine, Croatia, Norway and Slovakia banned all foreign nationals from entering the country. Foreign nationals from Europe or Asia were also prohibited from entering Colombia, where there have been 24 cases, and officials closed the border with Venezuela. The WHO criticized countries that implemented blanket travel bans, and Dr. Mike Ryan, director of the WHO's Health Emergencies Program, said during a Friday press conference that they will do "nothing to protect individual states." "Many countries that had imposed bans ended up importing more cases anyway and may have reacted later than they should because they assumed travel bans would protect then," Ryan added. New cases in China, where the virus originated, appear to be waning, but the country still has more reported cases than every other nation combined. Large outbreaks have also been seen in Italy, South Korea and Iran, where half the cases outside China have been reported. As a result, Japan and Hungary banned foreign nationals from entering if they'd recently been in any of those four countries. After Italy, the European countries with the most cases of the new coronavirus are France, Germany and Spain, prompting Singapore to ban travelers from those nations. Malta, the smallest country in Europe, expanded that ban to include Switzerland. Turkey, Vietnam, Argentina, Austria, Russia, Jordan, Guatemala, Vietnam, Germany and South Korea have also implemented bans on travelers from certain countries where cases have been reported.

    American Politics

    A former staff assistant to then-Senator Joe Biden claims she was sexually assaulted by the Democrat presidential candidate in 1993. Tara Reade, the former staffer who said she viewed Biden as a “champion of women’s rights,” made the allegations in an audio interview with podcaster and journalist Katie Harper. Reade explained that the entire exchange was odd. She was sent to deliver a gym bag to Biden when he allegedly, without any exchange of words, simply began kissing her. “We were alone, and it was the strangest thing. There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall,” she recalled. “His hands were on me and underneath my clothes.” Reade proceeded to describe other more graphic actions Biden allegedly engaged in. We have no desire to enter into those details. When the assault was over, she claims Biden said, “C’mon man, I heard you liked me.” Reade claims that after the assault, Biden dismissed her rather angrily saying, “You’re nothing to me!” https://thepoliticalinsider.com/biden-accused-of-sexual-assault-by-former-assistant/ “For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it’s been made worse or better over time.” --Joe Biden (on Brett Kavanaugh allegations) https://www.mrctv.org/blog/biden-who-advocated-believing-all-women-now-stands-accused-sexually-assaulting-former-staffer oooof

    - Rising at more or less the same rate as France - UK’s line no longer seems to be flattening - The steeper the line, the faster deaths are multiplying

    Europe’s infectious disease agency says coronavirus is likely to survive warmer weather The ECDC rapid risk assessment noted that preliminary analyses of the COVID-19 outbreak in China and other countries, showed that fast-spread of the virus was also observed in tropical districts with high absolute humidity (Guangxi and Singapore). As several scientists were expressing hopes that the virus will not survive in warmer temperatures, the ECDC assessment said that so far, there is no evidence that COVID-19 will follow the pattern of other human Coronaviruses in the northern hemisphere and thus, will display a marked winter seasonality. So far, there are four coronaviruses that are endemic in human populations, and which are responsible for 10–15% of common cold infections. Those display a marked winter seasonality in temperate climates, with a peak between December and April, but are hardly detected in the summer months. According to the assessment, the seasonality of coronaviruses could be driven by environmental conditions and host susceptibility, because coronaviruses are more stable under low and midrange relative humidity (20–50%), when the defence mechanisms of the airways are suppressed. https://www.neweurope.eu/article/europes-infectious-disease-agency-says-coronavirus-is-likely-to-survive-warmer-weather/
  6. I love Bilko and I love Seinfeld. But I voted Bilko as it's timeless. These two should have been semi finalist or in the final really.

    Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region Steve Rotheram will lift all tolls on the Mersey Tunnells this evening to stop NHS workers being forced to pay to carry out lifesaving work during the coronavirus crisis. Mayor Rotheram has been negotiating the move with government in recent days and it will mean that from 8pm this evening, there will be no tolls collected at either the Kingsway or Queensway tunnel between Liverpool and the Wirral. This is being done to support NHS staff and key workers who are travelling to work to help the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, Halton Borough Council is calling on government to suspend all tolling on the Mersey Gateway bridge that links Runcorn and Widnes. Staff working on the Mersey Tunnels are to be sent home as they are not considered key workers - but there will be skeleton staff in place alongside Mersey Tunnels Police to maintain order. From 8pm this evening, there will be no tolls charged at either tunnel. No money will be taken from Fast Tag accounts during this time. The barriers will still be in place, but will rise automatically when drivers approach.

    They'll probably get away with having a tag and being stuck at home.

    LONDON (Reuters) - Anyone claiming to have coronavirus who deliberately coughs at emergency workers faces being jailed for two years, Britain’s Director of Public Prosecutions said on Thursday. Max Hill said there had been reports in recent days of people coughing in the faces of police, other emergency workers and shop staff. Those responsible could face charges of common assault, he said. “Emergency workers are more essential than ever as society comes together to tackle the coronavirus pandemic,” Hill said in a statement. “I am therefore appalled by reports of police officers and other frontline workers being deliberately coughed at by people claiming to have COVID-19. Let me be very clear: this is a crime and needs to stop.” On Wednesday, a 45-year-old man admitted three counts of assaulting an emergency worker after claiming to have coronavirus and directing coughs at London police officers arresting him for another offence, the Crown Prosecution Service said. In Blackburn, northern England, a 40-year-old man was jailed after threatening to spit at officers on Monday after they had asked why he was out with two others following the government’s announcement that social gatherings should cease and that people observe strict rules on social distancing.

    My son had the tight/pain chest for a while, his doctor gave him antibiotics last Friday and it took most of it away.

    What the fuck, they can pass all kinds of emergency laws but for some strange reason they need the permission of the family to announce a completely anonymous death due to Covid-19 during a worldwide pandemic.
