Here’s a fresh round-up of Covid insanity . . .
1. Could kids actually be looking forward to summer school? That’s what some parents and schools are banking on . . . they think kids miss in-person school so much they’ll actually be excited to get out of the house to go to school this summer.
Schools in North Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, and more will be open this summer . . . but will kids ACTUALLY see that as good news?
2. Strip clubs and legal brothels in Nevada can fully reopen on Saturday with CONTACT between the talent and the customers for the first time since March of last year . . . if the ladies have gotten at least their first vaccine shot and they wear a mask.
3. A casino in West Virginia is luring in people from out-of-state by offering them vaccine shots in the parking garage.
4. Here’s a random side effect of everyone being at home so much AND paying more attention than ever to personal hygiene: More clogged pipes from people flushing wipes.
5. Some restaurants have put giant stuffed animals at their tables to make them seem “full” while they keep everything social distanced. Well . . . a guy in Florida was just busted for stealing some of those giant stuffed animals from an outdoor restaurant.
6. The family that runs the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing in Florida sold a miracle Covid cure last year . . . that turned out to be BLEACH. Now they’ve all been indicted on federal charges and could all face LIFE in prison.
7. Here are the updated stats on vaccinations and Covid cases as of last night . . .
Covid vaccinations in the U.S.: 139.9 million people have received at least one dose or 42.2% of the population. 94.7 million people, or 28.5%, are fully vaccinated.
New daily cases in the U.S.: 34,736, with 273 new deaths. That brings the total to 32.8 million cases . . . with more than 586,000 deaths . . . and more than 25.3 million who’ve now recovered.
Total cases worldwide: 147.7 million . . . with more than 3.1 million deaths . . . and more than 125.3 million people who’ve beaten the virus globally.
