Maine residents try to force quarantine of out-of-towners by cutting down tree, police say
A group of Maine residents apparently tried to forcibly quarantine their neighbors by cutting down a tree and blocking a roadway out of fear they might have the coronavirus.
A man who lived on Cripple Creek Road in Vinalhaven on an island off Maine left his residence to check on disrupted cable service when he came across a downed tree in the road, according to a Facebook post Saturday from the Knox County Sheriff's Office. He told police that when he got out of his car to inspect the tree, a group of people, some with guns, gathered around him and told him he needed to be quarantined.
"Believing the group may be there to harm him, [he] fled to his residence and told his roommates what he had found," the department said.
Will spring breakers become super-spreaders?
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — As Florida officials move to expel the hundreds of thousands of spring breakers who ignored calls for social distancing, public-health specialists are nervously wondering what will happen once the party’s over.
For much of this week, revelers continued to cram four and five to a hotel room, swarm beaches over hundreds of miles of coastline, and then gather shoulder-to-shoulder in bars and clubs – almost a model process for spreading contagious diseases.
“What is happening in Florida with spring break partying-on by students oblivious to the epidemiological implications of their actions is nothing short of tragic,” wrote Gregg Gonsalves, a professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health, in an email. “While many of us have been hunkering down to try to break the chains of infection in our communities, these young people have decided the pleasures of the moment are worth bringing back the coronavirus to their friends and family.”

Below Deck: Sailing Yacht (2020-)
Money solved all their problems.
The only funny the brutes laid out was calling chef, Ted Bundy. The saddest thing chef did was exhibit why. 17-Mar-2020
The chugalug got invaded by woke tacks radiating American political correctness as growled on social media. They use the black guy to intimidate the boat, they have no respect for work, time, money or sex and the show needs to punish them for it. I know that cameramen don't interfere but under these circumstances they have to. Is that a rule now?

LGBTQ people are more vulnerable to coronavirus for three reasons
On 11 March, more than 100 LGBTQ organisations released a joint open letter to healthcare providers and mainstream media outlets to make them aware that queer people are at greater risk of contracting the coronavirus.
Dr. Scout, Deputy Director for the National LGBT Cancer Network, states: “As the spread of the novel coronavirus a.k.a. COVID-19 increases, many LGBTQ+ people are understandably concerned about how this virus may affect us and our communities.
“The undersigned want to remind all parties handling COVID-19 surveillance, response, treatment, and media coverage that LGBTQ+ communities are among those who are particularly vulnerable to the negative health effects of this virus.”
The letter continues to say that LGBTQ people are vulnerable because of three specific factors.

Jordyn Woods responds to backlash for wearing an abaya at Abu Dhabi mosque
Jordyn Woods caused a stir on social media while on vacation in Abu Dhabi.
On Thursday, the 22-year-old model posted a photo wearing a traditional abaya when visiting the Sheikh Zayed Mosque on her trip to the United Arab Emirates, sparking criticism.
“Haram you’re not Muslim so you can’t go to the mosque,” one person commented on her Instagram post. “Oh so if they wear it they’re praised but when muslim girls wear it their bashed and called terrorists??,” another said. A third wrote, “Post your booty one day then one of the most sacred mosques the next.”
Coronavirus: Three more people test positive in Coachella Valley
Officials announced three positive cases in the Coachella Valley on Monday afternoon. Health investigators believe the three infections were the result of contact with a known case or travel into areas where the coronavirus has been detected, according to Riverside County health officials. Two of the people have been isolated at home and the third is being cared for at a local hospital.
Health officials also announced Monday morning that a second Riverside County resident tested positive for coronavirus on a cruise ship. Jeff Van Wageman, Riverside County assistant county executive officer for public safety, said the patient was a passenger on a Diamond Princess cruise ship and is being treated in Northern California.
Officials announced the county's first case of locally acquired coronavirus on Saturday. That patient is undergoing care at Eisenhower Health in Rancho Mirage. Health officials declined to disclose details about the patient, including how and when the virus was contracted. Riverside County Public Health Officer Cameron Kaiser said Sunday that officials are still investigating the source of contraction, which they hope to complete in a couple days but it may be a case of "community spread." The patient has no connection to schools in Riverside County, Kaiser said.
Gays Must Stop Cheek-Kissing During the Coronavirus Outbreak
The French call it "la bise." For many gay men, it is a customary greeting at Sunday brunch or any other communal gathering: cheek-kissing, where one or both sides of the face receive a smooch from a friend.
However, such a gesture could help spread the outbreak of COVID-19 (or coronavirus disease), say world health officials, who are cautioning against cheek-kissing, hand-shaking, and high-fives.

Coronavirus Containment Efforts in the U.S. Could Disrupt 'People's Day-to-Day Lives,' CDC Warns
As the number of people infected with a novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 has ticked up worldwide—totaling more than 80,000 as of Tuesday afternoon—the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has routinely emphasized that the risk to Americans remains relatively low.
But that tone changed somewhat during a call with reporters Tuesday, when Dr. Nancy Messonnier, Director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases warned that community spread appears imminent, and disruption to U.S. communities could be significant.
“It is not a question of if coronavirus will spread through the United States,” Messonnier said, “but a question of when and how many people will have severe illness.”
So far, person-to-person spread of COVID-19 has been minimal in the U.S. Most confirmed cases have been among Americans who traveled to areas where COVID-19 is more widespread, and these people have been treated and isolated accordingly. That’s crucial to the containment of disease, as spread within communities greatly increases the total number of cases and the likelihood that transmission will multiply.
