    In this case, ignorance is not bliss.

    Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp admits he just learned asymptomatic people can spread coronavirus, even though health experts had warned about the possibility as early as January

    The global coronavirus death toll is now 51,299. That includes 13,915 in Italy, 10,096 in Spain, 5,603 in the US, 4,503 in France, 3,160 in Iran, 2,921 in the UK, 1,339 in the Netherlands, 1,066 in Germany and 1,011 in Belgium. Infectious disease expert Dr. Harvey Fineberg says people can spread the virus by simply breathing or by talking. That's good to know. So we should be safe as long as nobody breathes or talks.

    Globally, there have now been 1,012,486 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 52,932 deaths. The death toll in the United States is 5,865. One hundred forty-four of those deaths have occurred in Florida, where Ron De Santis is Governor. He is a member of the Republican party, which now exists in name only. It has become the Donald Trump party – and its leaders march in lockstep with the orange-skinned cult leader to whom they have sold their souls. Nothing matters to them other than Trump, their party, guns and the wealthiest Americans.

    Governor Ron DeSantis risked the lives of Floridians
    CNN, Apr 2 2020 2:20 PM

    Despite surging numbers of coronavirus fatalities in New York and Washington and a rising tide of Florida editorial boards demanding action, Governor Ron DeSantis did not issue a statewide stay-at-home order until April 1. That made Florida the last state with more than 5,000 coronavirus cases to implement a statewide shutdown. "Unlike some other governors, DeSantis ignored the obvious for too long and Floridians likely are sicker for it," the Miami Herald said in a scathing editorial. "His statewide essential-services-only order, though welcome, is indeed too late."

    DeSantis drew widespread condemnation for resisting calls to close Florida's beaches to throngs of students partying for Spring Break. As the Palm Beach Post editorial board put it: "There's no denying it: DeSantis is taking his marching orders from President Trump, who is still downplaying the intensity of COVID-19's grip on the nation, ignoring medical experts and playing politics with Americans' very lives."

    The coronavirus death toll in the United States is now 6,095 – and King Donald continues to play doctor. He needs to stop. He has the same amount of qualifications to offer medical advice as the amount of qualifications he had to be President of the United States: Zero.

    There have now been 1,188,489 cases of coronavirus worldwide and 64,103 deaths. In the United States, 8,243 have died. And those gun-worshipping NRA leaders apparently think every man, woman and child in America should be allowed to buy a semi-automatic assault weapon and try to shoot and kill all the COVID-19 spores.

    The coronavirus death toll is now 15,362 in Italy, 11,947 in Spain, 8,442 in the US, 4,313 in the UK and 64,667 worldwide – and King Donald the First, who obviously believes he knows more about COVID-19 than all the world's medical experts combined, is still busy playing doctor.

    The COVID-19 death toll is now 68,475, including 15,887 in Italy, 12,418 in Spain and 9,484 in the United States. Appearing today on Fox News Sunday, Surgeon General Jerome Adams said this week will be "the hardest and the saddest." He added, "This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment, only it's not going to be localized. It's going to be happening all over the country and I want America to understand that." And King Donald the First continues to play doctor.
