Covid Chaos: Goodbye Kiss Cam at Sporting Events, Hello “Hand Sanitizer Cam”

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

1.  The pandemic may mean the end of the KISS CAM at sporting events . . . after all, it’s hard to kiss with a mask on, and everyone’s now in the business of trying to get people to NOT swap droplets.

Here’s one alternative:  The Milwaukee Bucks recently replaced it with the “hand sanitizer cam” . . . which looks like it’s spraying people with sanitizer.  (Or if you’re a pervert, it looks like something else entirely.)

2.  A video went viral last year of a woman in San Diego berating a Starbucks employee for refusing to serve her without a mask.  Someone started a GoFundMe for that Starbucks employee, and it pulled in more than $105,000.

Now the woman who was yelling at the Starbucks worker is SUING the guy who started the GoFundMe for, quote, “violation of her right to privacy . . . [and] misappropriation of her name and likeness.”

3.  Some people who’ve gotten the Covid vaccine are now dealing with something called “vaccine guilt” . . . where they feel bad they’ve gotten it before other people who might need it more.

4.  The pandemic has brought us virtual court appearances . . . which have brought us a whole new set of things we’ve never seen before.

A virtual court hearing for assault in South Dakota was postponed last week when the judge found out the defendant was in the SAME HOME as his victim . . . and he seemed to be intimidating her into not telling the truth.

5.  A bar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is trying to avoid huge superspreader crowds during spring break by only letting in people with out-of-state IDs who are over 23.

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

New daily cases in the U.S.:  41,967, with 716 new deaths.

Total cases in the U.S.:  29.6 million . . . with more than 537,000 deaths . . . and more than 20.3 million who’ve now recovered.

Total cases worldwide:  117.4 million . . . with more than 2.6 million deaths . . . and more than 92.9 million people who’ve beaten the virus globally.
