Coronavirus Insanity: Will You Go Back to Shaking Hands When This Is Over?

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

1.  Only 46% of people say they’ll definitely go back to shaking hands once the pandemic is over.  26% will not, and the rest aren’t sure.  Men are almost three times more likely than women to say they’ll go back to handshakes.

2.  A timeshare company has come up with maybe the safest possible way to have Thanksgiving with your family.  You book a 15-night trip where everyone quarantines for two weeks in their own suite . . . then on the last night, you have Thanksgiving dinner.

The prices start at $2,150 per suite and they’re offering locations in Arkansas, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Arizona.

3.  Here’s a quiz by “Time” magazine where you can see how your coronavirus risk tolerance stacks up against other people.

4.  It seems like people are getting more and more comfortable with getting on airplanes again.  The TSA screened more than one million people on Sunday . . . that’s the most people in one day since March 17th.

5.  Coronavirus has killed “maximalism” . . . which was the trend over the past decade to buy lots of loud, bright furniture and decorations for your home.  Now people are going back to minimalism.

6.  Even though the job market isn’t great right now, a quarter of workers in the U.S. say they’ve considered quitting their job during the pandemic because of stress.

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

New daily cases in the U.S.:  57,327, with 442 new deaths.

Total cases in the U.S.:  8.4 million, with more than 225,000 deaths . . . and more than 5.5 million who’ve now recovered.

Total cases worldwide:  40.6 million . . . with more than 1.1 million deaths . . . and more than 30.3 million people who’ve beaten the virus globally.
