Politics these days is show business. Elections are Dancing with the Stars with consequences. ~Rue Bella

(About fame) Living for likes, shares and follows is a form of validation. The question is whether it is also the source of our self esteem. If it is, we’re screwed. And, culturally, it seems as if it’s become more and more our shared value. ... Meringue is no longer a sweet and pretty topping but the body itself. ~Charles Perez

#COVID19: South Korea's numbers jump 64%, going from 31 cases to 51. Singapore. Japan. South Korea. These places are going to tell us where this outbreak is going.

They may be, but don't count on Japan being totally transparent going forward. They've got the Tokyo summer Olympic$ to protect.

Iran also has their first 2 confirmed cases. Both died. Assuming a cfr of about 1-2 percent (but who really knows?), that means there are many unconfirmed cases wandering around in Iran. That also assumes those 2 deaths are the only ones to die of it thus far.

For the 2nd time today
@CDCgov
has issued a Level 1 travel alert related to the #COVID19 outbreak, this one for Japan. Level 1 does not mean "don't go." It means "be careful/be aware." It also means CDC thinks the situation there is riskier. Earlier alert was for Hong Kong.
