Covid Chaos: There’s a Hotline You Can Call When You Need to Scream . . . But It Shuts Down Soon

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

1.  There’s a hotline you can call when you just need to SCREAM to blow off some of the stress during the pandemic.  But . . . get out your screams fast, because the hotline shuts down tomorrow.  (The hotline number is 561-567-8431.)

2.  When you’re wearing a mask and need to sneeze, what do you do?  According to a new survey, 41% of people keep the mask on and sneeze into it . . . 31% pull it down and sneeze into their clothes or hands . . . and 2% just sneeze into the air.

3.  Even when it’s safe to go back to an office, people might not want to.  86% of people who’ve been working remotely during the pandemic say they’d be interested in keeping things that way in the future.

4.  If this work from home thing continues for a lot longer, Nissan will have you covered.  They just created a concept car that’s a minivan with an entire desk and workspace built-in.

5.  A 35-year-old woman in Florida was able to get the vaccine early when she took her 70-year-old mother to her vaccination appointment . . . and then asked nicely if they had an extra dose lying around.

6.  A couple in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada . . . a 60-year-old man and 25-year-old woman . . . refused to wear masks at a gym and pretended to cough on equipment when people stared at them.  They were fined $460.

7.  A doctor in Colorado recommends that you wear two masks, like a surgical mask with a cloth mask over it, for protection.  But a third mask?  Now that’s just madness.  It could interfere with your breathing at that point.

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

New daily cases in the U.S.:  171,525, with 2,768 new deaths.
