    There have now been 304,999 confirmed cases of the coronavirus. The death toll has reached 13,017. In Italy, 4,825 have died. In the United States, 302 have died. And our know-it-all President is continuing to play doctor.

    Despite federal guidelines, Trump suggests 'sanitizing' and reusing medical masks

    Worldwide, there have now been 308,446 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 13,068 deaths. In the United States, there are 26,867 confirmed cases and 348 deaths. New York has the most cases, 11,677. Washington has 1,793, California has 1,505, New Jersey has 1,327, Michigan has 807, Florida has 763, Louisiana has 763, Illinois has 753, Massachusetts has 525 and Colorado has 475. There are even eight confirmed cases in Hawai'i and 12 in Alaska. But of course King Donald the First said last month the virus was "contained." And he's now turning every every press conference into a campaign rally. He praises himself, he attacks Democrats, he attacks the news media and he spreads lies and false accusations. Welcome to Trumpworld.

    The 2020 Summer Olympics is scheduled for July 24 to August 9 in Tokyo but almost all sporting events throughout the world have been canceled or postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Many of the Olympics qualifying events have been canceled and there are growing calls for the Olympic games to be canceled as well. Perhaps by the time of the 2024 Olympics in Paris, life will be back to normal.

    Gatherings of "two or more people" are now banned in Germany. Das ist wirklich verrückt! And in New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo has warned that up to 80% of the state's population could get the coronavirus and the "stay at home" order could last for as long as nine months.

    The worldwide coronavirus death toll is now 14,641 and 337,042 people have been infected. In the United States, 419 have died. One hundred fourteen of those deaths have occurred in New York. National Guard troops will be activated and deployed to New York, California and Washington, the three states with the highest number of coronavirus cases.

    Trump made 33 false claims about the coronavirus crisis in the first two weeks of March

    The International Olympic Committee is expected to make a decision by mid-April as to whether to postpone the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. The games are scheduled to begin July 24. The IOC says the games will definitely not be canceled – but If a large number of nations follow the lead of Canada and Australia and refuse to participate because of coronavirus fears, the IOC may be forced to cancel the games.

    Canada and Australia will not send athletes to Tokyo Olympics

    There have now been 42,443 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 517 deaths in the United States. Scientists and medical experts are advising everyone to stay home and urging non-essential businesses to close – but, gosh darnit, that hurts the economy and jeopardizes King Donald's re-election chances. Everything is about him, you know.

    Trump shows impatience with public health experts on coronavirus
    As the economic carnage grows, the President faces growing pressure to let businesses reopen despite warnings from health professionals of mounting coronavirus infections.

    The 1964 Olympics in Tokyo were held in October. The 1968 Olympics in Mexico City were also held in October. The Olympics are now usually held in July or August when there are no baseball/football/soccer/hockey/basketball playoff games and television networks can devote more time to Olympics coverage. However, this year's games will be postponed, possibly until 2021, because of the coronavirus pandemic. Details have not yet been announced. And please don't make fun of this man's name. I'm asking nicely.
