Coronavirus Updates
Important developments in the pandemic.

The latest

The most obvious lesson from Thanksgiving? Public health messaging from officials and experts is not working. They told us to stay home and stay distanced, but we gathered. They told us not to travel, but we flew.

Now they are terrified of a pandemic Christmas: If Americans repeat their Thanksgiving actions, the country's already catastrophic situation could reach levels where hospitals are forced to choose which patients to save and which to let die, and where lockdowns become unavoidable.

A Nebraska man who was in otherwise good health didn't take covid-19 seriously, but being hospitalized "made a believer" out of him, he said. As the number of people who are heeding guidelines trends downward, experts are debating what it will take to get Americans to shift their behavior.

Being told to stay away from family and friends at the holidays is difficult, especially during an extended public health crisis, and there is plenty of evidence that the pandemic is exacting a severe psychological toll. Depression and anxiety are up, alongside drug use and alcohol consumption. Suicidal thoughts are increasing, particularly in young adults. Here are some ways experts say we can be there for loved ones, even if we can't be there. And a psychologist's advice about how we can keep our own sadness from evolving into depression.

A bipartisan group of senators unveiled an approximately $908 billion stimulus proposal Tuesday, aiming to break a months-long partisan impasse. President-elect Biden's economic team is also planning an ambitious recovery plan.

Scott Atlas, President Trump's pandemic adviser, resigned Monday after becoming widely disliked in the White House. Atlas embraced a controversial strategy of urging Americans to return to work and school with little restriction, and spent months feuding with the coronavirus task force's other doctors. He was the only medical adviser the president met with regularly for several months. (Analysis: Atlas will forever be the face of surrender to the coronavirus.)

All you can do it look after your family and friends. Assume anyone you come in contact with outside your cell is infected.

"All you can do it look after your family and friends." Yep. Lay low a bit. It will be over soon enough.

Recognize this happening: "Depression and anxiety are up, alongside drug use and alcohol consumption. Suicidal thoughts are increasing, particularly in young adults." Keep calling and making sure people are OK. Reinforce to them this is temporary.

Second worst thing to being separated from family is being locked in with them 24/7.

Yep, with the exception of cowardly progs, we're done with this. To be precise, we were done with this in May. It really is time that you progs move on to your next panic. This has been tiresome for quite a while now.

The best thing about Covid is that it's absolutely kicking Tpap's ass..

He melts down about it daily on NSR- the whole thing drives him crazy

his "favorite president" got bulldozed in the election due in large part to the virus

and then of course, he dug himself into a hole with the wrongzest NSR proclamation of all time .. upon which he keeps doubling down over and over looking stupider and dotardier every time

becoming the NSR classic that will never go away

such entertainment, and he's not even in the hospital yet

Let's get one thing clear, there's nothing cowardly about spending 24/7 with my wife and a steady diet of her organic vegetarian experiments. Within 30 minutes of my vaccination you're going to find me checking to see if my bartender survived the pestilence unscathed.

I think the best thing WE can do is to follow the advice of the scientists and beat this shit.

The worst thing we can do is pretend we have.
