Here’s a fresh round-up of coronavirus insanity . . .

1.  Singing “Happy Birthday” could spread coronavirus.  Scientists analyzed how many droplets come out of our mouths when we’re singing different songs, and ones that are, quote, “loud and consonant-rich” like “Happy Birthday” spread the most.  (And blowing out birthday candles probably doesn’t help.  So maybe we should start using this guy’s technique.)

2.  Cops in Manchester, England raided a party for violating coronavirus rules on Friday . . . and it turned out to be a mid-afternoon swingers orgy.  It had been going strong for about two hours when the cops got there.

3.  A new study confirmed that food contamination is almost definitely NOT a way of transmitting coronavirus.  Quote, “There has not been any evidence that food, food packaging, or food handling is a . . . transmission route.”

4.  The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota last month is now a super-spreader event . . . more than 250,000 cases have been tied to the event and it could lead to $12 billion in public health costs.

5.  A surfer in Spain was arrested and taken off the beach in handcuffs by two cops in hazmat suits because she’d been diagnosed with coronavirus and was supposed to be self-quarantining.

6.  Here are the updated stats on CONFIRMED coronavirus cases as of last night.

New daily cases in the U.S.:  28,561, with 498 new deaths.

Total cases in the U.S.:  6.5 million, with more than 194,000 deaths . . . and more than 3.7 million who’ve now recovered.

Total cases worldwide:  27.7 million . . . with more than 901,000 deaths . . . and more than 19.8 million people who’ve beaten the virus globally.
