Kentuckians get together to hold a ‘coronavirus party’

Published

on

The number of coronavirus cases in Kentucky has now jumped to 163, with 39 new cases on Tuesday.

And according to the Courier-Journal, not all of these cases may have been accidental — Gov. Andy Beshear (D-KY) is announcing that at least one of the cases is linked to a “coronavirus party” in which people gathered together to deliberately spread the disease amongst themselves.

It is unclear why, exactly, anyone would want to deliberately infect themselves at a “coronavirus party.” But regardless of the reason, it worked.

Beshear condemned the practice sharply, warning residents not to take part in similar events.

Trump’s strategy isn’t working in Pennsylvania — a state the president can’t afford to lose: report

And Philadelphia-based reporter Holly Otterbein, in an article published in Politico on August 2, stresses that so far, Trump’s attacks on Biden have not been resonating in Pennsylvania.

A 2020 ‘Blue Wave’ could badly cripple the Republican Party for years: Dem strategist

Published

on

In a column for New York magazine, Democratic strategist Ed Kilgore claimed that a "Blue Wave" election in 2020, like the one that switched the balance of power in the House to the Democrats, could have a far-reaching impact on congressional representation in elections to come.

In 2018, distaste for Donald Trump -- who was not on the ballot -- led voters to take out their wrath on Republican lawmakers, handing Democrats a net gain of 40 seats in the House and making Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) the House Speaker.

‘Worse than I could have imagined’: Epidemiologists rain hell on Trump’s ‘appalling’ pandemic performance

Published

on

Several professional epidemiologists have told The Atlantic that they've been shocked at the Trump administration's failed response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, which so far has killed 155,000 Americans in just five months.

In the story, journalist Ed Yong writes that he has spoken with more than 100 different infectious disease experts over the last several months and has "learned that almost everything that went wrong with America’s response to the pandemic was predictable and preventable."
