Italy’s daily coronavirus death toll rises but new cases lowest since March 10

“Doctors in northern Italy, one of the world’s hardest-hit areas during the pandemic, have reported extraordinarily large numbers of children under age 9 with severe cases of what appears to be Kawasaki disease, more common in parts of Asia.  “There are some children who have died who didn’t have underlying health conditions,” Hancock told LBC Radio.  “It’s a new disease that we think may be caused by coronavirus and the COVID-19 virus, we’re not 100% sure because some of the people who got it hadn’t tested positive, so we’re doing a lot of research now but it is something that we’re worried about.”

Children were until now thought to be much less susceptible than their parents or grandparents to the most deadly complications wrought by the novel coronavirus, though the mysterious inflammatory disease noticed in Britain, Spain and Italy may demand a reassessment.  “It is rare, although it is very significant for those children who do get it, the number of cases is small,” Hancock, one of the ministers leading Britain’s COVID-19 response, said.”–Reuters

Fox is on a commercial, a long one for St. Jude’s.  Fox, as its headline, is interviewing a guy from Duck Dynasty whose home was shot by someone, who now has a restraining order on them.  No one was hurt. Fox then touts two more women coming forward to accuse Joe Biden, when they ignored 22 women with such accusations against Trump, and payoffs to porn stars?  WTF are they thinking?  Then MORE commercials, it appears to me that Fox sells almost twice as much time to commercials.  I wonder if anyone has ever checked that to see who runs most and least commercial time.

CNN is also running a feel good story, neighbors discover they are cousins during stay at home order.
Then they have Dr. Gupta to update on the bug, and whatever Trump said or did recently that is in error.  But first, Commercials . . . Tax Ads, Chainsaw Ads, weight loss Ads, Facial Hair Removal Ads, I hate fucking streaming live TV.

Gupta answers viewer questions like “Why are people wearing masks while driving closed up cars?”
