    I get that people need to keep working to get paychecks to buy food, but that doesn't help much if you're in the hospital with a deadly virus or dead. I'm probably privileged that I could not work for a while before my budget is in trouble, but more and more people are making this economic argument at the peril of safety and I think it's irresponsible.

    They just sent us all a memo to explain why we are "essential" should anyone need it to travel in under a shelter in place order. I think it's b.s. I have permission to work from home now so I'm outta here, but I wish they were encouraging people to work from home and allowing them to come in if needed instead of the other way round.

    The governor just shut down the state yesterday. Work laid off all "non-essentials" so I guess I'm considered essential. It's going to be a long 3 weeks.

    Neat. Here's the chart he shows in the video:

    Less neat, the US has as many new (confirmed) cases of COVID this week as China has (confirmed) total.

    Looking forward to the Presidents latest about COVID, those should be some good April Fools Day jokes.
