Here’s a fresh round-up of Covid insanity . . .
1. A woman in Kentucky got a tattoo on March 4th of last year saying, quote, “Courageously and radically refuse to wear a mask.” She meant it metaphorically. Then the pandemic happened.
And once anti-maskers became a thing, she says she’s spent the entire year wearing long sleeves to keep the tattoo covered up. Now she’s going viral in a TikTok trend where people are sharing their worst tattoo.
2. Here’s a list of things that happened one year ago but feel like they happened a lifetime ago because of how much the world has changed during the pandemic.
3. Here’s a good breakdown from “The Atlantic” on how much we can expect life to return to normal in the upcoming seasons. Basically, it looks like we’re actually on track toward a summer that’s close to normal.
4. A landlord in Illinois has been arrested after he tied up two tenants on Sunday, put pillowcases on their heads, drove them at gunpoint to a cemetery, and dumped them in the snow.
He said he did it because he was frustrated that he couldn’t evict anyone because of Covid restrictions. He’s facing kidnapping charges.
5. 60% of people say they’d take a pay cut if it meant the place they worked took better measures to stay safe and protect them from Covid.
6. Here are the updated stats on CONFIRMED Covid cases as of last night . . .
New daily cases in the U.S.: 71,054, with 2,404 new deaths.
Total cases in the U.S.: 28.9 million . . . with 515,000 deaths . . . and more than 19.2 million who’ve now recovered.
