Covid Chaos: What to Put on Your Bookshelf During Video Calls to Look Smart . . . or Something Else

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

1.  Book sales are way up during the pandemic . . . not necessarily because people want to read them, but because they want to fill up the bookshelves behind them in their Zoom calls.

2.  A jobs expert from Wales is going viral after she appeared on a BBC News broadcast discussing unemployment . . . without realizing that a very large, anatomically correct LOVE TOY was visible on the bookshelf behind her.

3.  60% of Americans receive more deliveries now than they did before the pandemic started.  Two out of five people wash their hands after they handle a package . . . and one-third disinfect their deliveries.

4.  A company is now selling a Covid passport that has a scannable code that links to your proof of vaccination.  It’ll cost you $19.95.

5.  The DNA testing company 23andMe has launched a new tool that can predict a person’s risk of developing a severe case of Covid.
