The Big News
It was a short work week for those still able to work, but there was a considerable amount of health care news. That hasn’t changed.
The story that probably got the most attention was that the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 passed 100,000 people. It can be hard to get a handle on what that means. The Washington Post looked at the people who count the deaths and track the deaths.
There will be more. The Texas Tribune noted how the coronavirus was a threat to people living in homeless shelters. Nursing homes continue to be a major hot spot in this pandemic. Same goes for areas where poorer people live.
But another source of infections just might be the crowds of people who think all danger has passed and it’s time to frolic in close proximity with others.
