Coronavirus Insanity: Six-Foot Beer Coolers, Chuck E. Cheese Goes Bankrupt, and More

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

1.  Thousands showed up to a packed beach in England this week on its hottest day of the year so far and left a ton of trash behind.  They apparently didn’t have access to bathrooms either.  At least one person defecated in a fast-food burger box and left it.

2.  Chuck E. Cheese filed for bankruptcy yesterday.  It doesn’t mean they’re closing, but business has obviously been hit hard by the outbreak.

3.  Dos Equis is giving away six-foot-long beer coolers today that are supposed to promote social distancing.  You have to buy some Dos Equis and submit a photo of the receipt for a chance at one.  (The promo starts at 11:00 A.M. Eastern, and they only have a limited number.)

4.  A Silicon Valley investor and his business partner are accused of repackaging thousands of non-medical grade face masks, and trying to sell them to hospitals.

5.  A family in Texas threw a surprise birthday party late last month, and now 18 of them have tested positive for the virus.

6.  Over a million dead people were sent stimulus checks, totaling about $1.4 billion according to a new report.

7.  More adults are living with their parents or grandparents than any other time in U.S. history.  2.7 million moved back home in March and April, most of them college-aged.

8.  Pakistan now says the outbreak is partly to blame for the plane crash that killed 97 people there last month.  It turns out the pilots got distracted and forgot to lower the landing gear while they were talking about the virus.

9.  One in seven people have worked from their bathroom since the crisis began, according to a new survey.

10.  The CDC now says the true number of Americans who’ve had the virus could be more than 20 MILLION.  But here are the updated stats on CONFIRMED coronavirus cases as of last night . . .

New daily cases in the U.S.:  41,184, with 649 new deaths.

Total cases in the U.S.:  Just over 2.5 million, with more than 126,000 deaths . . . and over 1 million who’ve now recovered.

Total cases worldwide:  9.7 million . . . with 491,856 deaths . . . and more than 5.2 million people who’ve beaten the virus globally.
