COVID hospitalisations and deaths are now jointly increasing in the U.S

Despite claims by bad actors and the GOP COVID hospitalisations and deaths are now jointly rising in the continental United States. This is the first time that such things are both rising simultaneously since the original outbreak earlier this year. Some U.S cities, particularly those in the midwest, are also reporting such high spikes and hospitalisations that some hospitals are at maximum capacity. For example, here in New York City (where some of us are based ourselves) we’re now inching toward an almost 3% positivity rate. Now it is no secret that we are not a small town here and even a minor outbreak that isn’t contained can spiral out of control and fast.

Poll appears to show at least half of Americans won’t comply with another month long lockdown

A new Gallup poll out Thursday appears to show that the United States might have a much larger problem on its hands if it attempts a national lockdown of any kind.

That can partially be chalked up to the mismanagement of the virus at the hands of the Trump Administration. The Trump Administration has refused to fully acknowledge the virus; implement mask mandates, and pretty much any logical thing one could think of. As a result, America has tip-toed through minor restrictions instead of tackling it full strength to get it under control once-and-for-all.

The new restrictions come amid apparent government fears that the virus could spiral out of control again --- and if it does NYC would likely be doomed. ‘Obviously if that g...

Much of Europe is now swinging back into a 2nd lockdown, here’s what that means for you guys

England has now joined the ranks of some European territories in declaring a second lockdown (just days after France ordered its own nationwide lockdown amid spikes in the Coronavirus pandemic.) According to Downing Street, the new lockdown will be similar to the last except this time people will be far more restricted as to where they can and can't go. But don't worry -- if Tesco attempts to ban feminine items this time feel free to call the authorities because they can't do that. This lockdown per the Prime Minister 's office will reportedly last upwards of four weeks and may go on longer if the virus isn't pining downwards at that point.
