As many people want to force our current state of affairs into their mold of everything is OK now & we can return to normalcy, the covid deaths increase each day.

Here's a metric that maybe they should consider:

As of today, the U.S. death toll is already 50% higher than the number of people who perished in the Vietnam War! With much sadness, I say that normalcy is in the somewhat distant future - not now.

What do smartwatches have to do with covid19?

Here's the scoop-
Doctors use body temperature & blood oxygen levels as major indicators in diagnosing coronavirus. Guess what - many smartwatches (including Garmin, Apple, & Fitbit) can measure BOTH! Some can also do electrocardiograms, sleep apnea (directly related to blood oxygen), as well as what we usually expect - activity monitoring, pulse, etc.. My source of this info is Mayo Clinic. To be fair, these things are not 100% accurate but in many cases the instantaneous measurement is not as helpful as increases or decreases. I predict that once the media makes this more widely known, that by Christmas (or before) these devices will be selling like hotcakes! It's also helpful to know the time of day & date or maybe even the moon phase. Get 'em before they sell out.

An article in the Tennessean criticizes Gov. Lee & Trump for being too slow to respond to coronavirus & says that Lee "should have listened to front-line health experts and taken aggressive measures weeks before".

All about the Benjamins? What do you think?

There are many theories as to where Covid-19 started. There seems to be evidence that it originated in BATS. LINK

Yes, those creepy nocturnal rabies ridden flying mammals that may have wing spans of over 5 feet. To be fair, they do help to control the insect population, but if they're around I always have a crucifix in case they morph into vampires. Once again, CREEPY!

What good is liberty without life!

To Lee: wake up & smell the coffee!
