Irony: Hate Crimes Surge Against Asian Americans While They Are On The Front Lines Fighting COVID-19
There have been a lot of encouraging stories about peoples’ acts of generosity and kindness during the COVID-19 crisis. Unfortunately, human nature has its bad side too and the crisis has brought out some of our worst qualities including xenophobia, racism and, in some cases, violence.
Hate crimes against Asian Americans and Asian immigrants in the United States have been surging. It has ranged from verbal harassment to denial of services to physical attacks. There is no way to know, but President Trump’s insistence on calling COVID-19 the “China Virus” certainly doesn’t help. It is true that the Chinese government acted abysmally, for example, initially denying that the virus could be transmitted person to person. But China is hardly a democracy and the Chinese people were the victims rather than the perpetrators of this cover-up.
In fact, Asian Americans and Asian Immigrants to the U.S. deserve our thanks for their role in responding to the COVID-19 crisis. First of all, they are vastly over-represented among the front line medical workers who are treating those who have been infected. Seventeen percent of doctors, 9 percent of physician’s assistants and nearly 10 percent of nurses in the United States are of Asian descent.
Pastor who thinks God can change someone’s sexuality also think God will save him from coronavirus
Andrew Wommack, who refused to condemn Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, supports traumatising conversion therapy and claims he witnessed his son rise from the dead, referenced a section from Exodus and said it proved that God would stop the faithful from becoming sick with COVID-19.
I’ve been studying just in the last couple of days, based on all of this, was Exodus 23:25, and that verse says that you shall serve the Lord your God, and He shall take away all sickness – take all sickness away from the midst of thee,” Wommack said in the YouTube stream.
Anti-LGBT+ televangelist Andrew Wommack thinks God will ‘turn off’ cells and stop him from contracting coronavirus.
He then looked up the words “take away” in Hebrew and said they literally translate to “turn off”.
Wommack then suggested that God will turn off “whatever receptors you have in your body that make you receptive to sickness” for Christians, which will apparently prevent them from being affected by coronavirus.

Hate crimes against perceived coronavirus carriers spike in NYC
The city has coronavirus hate-crime fever, NYPD data shows.
Crime stats released Thursday show a spike in attacks against perceived carriers of the COVID-19 bug.
The data shows there have been 23 hate crimes against victim’s whose protected category is classified as “other” so far this year — a 475-percent increase from the 4 reported over the same period last year.
The crimes are categorized that way even though a majority of victims are Asian, officials said.
“Recent Coronavirus-related incidents fall under the anti-other category as there are two motivating factors behind these crimes,” the accompanying statement said. “The victim’s race (anti-Asian) and the perception that they have the Coronavirus (anti-disability).”

Worshippers Pack Louisiana Church Where Pastor is Defying Coronavirus Ban: ‘We Have a Mandate from God’ — WATCH
Life Tabernacle Church was packed for services on Tuesday night after its pastor, Mark Anthony (Tony) Spell, was charged with six misdemeanor counts of disobeying the powers of the governor for defying the state’s ban on public gatherings amid the coronavirus crisis.
“We have a mandate from the word of God. … We have a mandate from God to praise God in his sanctuary. This is the sanctuary,” said Spell.
The exodus of the wealthy from cities reveals the problems with individualism
New York’s gilded Upper East Side has been rendered a ghost town. The tourists are at home; the shops are shuttered, with their shelves bereft. Many of its residents, meanwhile, are as far away from the new center of a global pandemic as their wealth can take them—in the country, by the shore, on a hilltop, virtually anywhere else.
It’s the same story all over the world: The wealthy are experiencing coronavirus differently. Some have gone to their second or third homes or to visit family members in more remote locations. (In the interests of full transparency, I have spent the past two weeks staying with my mother at her home in rural Connecticut.) Others have paid thousands for short-term rentals: In France and the UK, sleepy country towns are overrun with weekenders hunkering down for the long haul, while entire hotels in Ireland have been bought out by families fleeing cities. In the US, Airbnb saw year-on-year revenue in rural areas increased by $280 million in March 2020, or almost 30%, while revenue in urban areas fell by $75 million, according to data from AirDNA. In the same period, bookings in Manhattan and New Jersey fell by 66%, while bookings in some Cape Cod towns have soared by as much as 600%.
Commentators widely agree that this is selfish, unfair, and in some cases actively dangerous. Writing in the Atlantic, travel journalist Nathan Thornburgh warns prospective emigrants that by leaving now, “you are nakedly prioritizing your comfort and peace of mind over the physical health of others.” Even tourism officials have asked would-be visitors to stay home: “This is something I thought I’d never have to say throughout my tourism career, but please stay home at this time,” Carol Chaplin, CEO of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority, said in a press release.

MAN CHARGED AFTER ALLEGEDLY COUGHING ON PACKETS OF NOODLES REFUSED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PURCHASE LIMITS
Police in Australia have charged a man accused of intentionally coughing on packets of noodles after being told by staff there was a limit on how many he could buy.
The suspect, a 34-year-old man from the suburb of Kooringal, tried to ignore the restrictions put in place as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak by purchasing four packets of noodles, police said. The incident took place at a Woolworths in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, last Thursday.
After being approached by staff, the man allegedly coughed on the two packets he was refused and said "well they're now contaminated anyway," 9News reported.
His attempted rule-breaking noodle purchase was initially flagged by a self-serve register, Riverina Police District's Acting Detective Inspector, Steve Probst, told the news outlet.
New York woman punched, robbed for wearing respirator mask at store, authorities say
HILTON, N.Y. – Four teens are accused of punching and robbing a woman at a Hilton, New York, business because she was wearing a respirator mask, authorities announced Tuesday.
Deputies responded to a Family Dollar on March 23 for the report of a robbery.
A woman said a group of people confronted her because she was "wearing a respirator mask" inside the store, officials with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said. "The victim was being harassed by the group of people who were stating she was infected with the coronavirus."
As she exited the store, the woman was punched in the face by multiple people and her keys and wallet were stolen, deputies said. The victim sustained minor injuries.
“Twinks for Trump” founder held a “corona potluck” to spread the virus
“Twink for Trump” Lucian Wintrich talked to the New York Post about a “corona potluck” – a get-together he organized where he discouraged people from washing their hands – that he organized earlier this month.
Wintrich, who parlayed his notoriety from the group Twinks for Trump into a paid gig at the far-right website Gateway Pundit, said that the idea was inspired by “chickenpox parties” – where parents take their kids to deliberately infect them with the disease.

Anti-LGBTQ hate groups on the rise in U.S., report warns
The number of anti-LGBTQ hate groups soared 43 percent last year, rising from 49 groups in 2018 to 70 in 2019, according to a recent report from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“Groups that vilify the LGBTQ community, in fact, represented the fastest-growing sector among hate groups in 2019,” the report states. The SPLC found the surge in anti-LGBTQ groups occurred amid an overall decrease in hate groups last year, which dropped to 940 from an all-time high of 1,020 in 2018.
The report said the surge was “possibly fueled by continued anti-LGBTQ sentiment and policy emanating from government officials,” largely attributing it to the Trump administration.

Hate-spewing teens yell ‘you caused coronavirus bitch!’ at Asian woman
A trio of hate-spewing teens blamed an Asian woman for coronavirus as they attacked her on board a city bus in The Bronx, police said Sunday.
The three girls approached the 51-year-old victim on the bus near Ogden Avenue and West 166th Street, screaming a series of anti-Asian slurs around 3 p.m. Saturday when one of the 15-year-olds hit the Asian woman in the head with an umbrella, cops said.
Church that thinks homosexuality is ‘destructive’ stays open during coronavirus because it’s a ‘divine institution’
The Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland has announced that it is “not of the view” that services need to stop to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
This statement was issued two days ago, in the wake of UK prime minister Boris Johnson’s March 16 briefing that said everyone must avoid both “mass gatherings” and “pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues”.
The Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland said: “Although many have interpreted UK government advice and remarks [about coronavirus] as meaning that all services in church buildings should cease, and have stopped meeting, the Church Interests Committee is not of that view.”

IS IT SAFE TO GET MY MAIL DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC?
The virus, SARS-CoV-2, is known to primarily spread through respiratory droplets, so reducing close contact between people is a way to reduce the chances of being exposed. It's also possible that people could touch an infected object, transfer the virus to their hand and then touch their face and become infected.
However, it's unclear how long the virus can live on surfaces. Studies show it could remain on a surface for a few hours or several days, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). This time frame could also vary based on the type of surface and the temperature or humidity of the environment that it's in.

Trish Regan exits Fox Business after calling coronavirus a "scam" on air
Fox Business announced Friday that the cable news network "parted ways" with anchor Trish Regan, after she called the novel coronavirus a "scam" on-air March 9.
The big picture: Conservative commentators, including syndicated radio personality Rush Limbaugh and Fox News' Sean Hannity, have come under fire for minimizing the threat of COVID-19. "For two crucial weeks in late February and early March, powerful Fox hosts talked about the “real” story of the coronavirus: It was a Democratic- and media-led plot against President Donald J. Trump," The New York Times writes.
Coronavirus-panicked dad locks son out of house after spring break trip
Two weeks ago, Matt Levine’s immediate concerns centered on where to find the best happy hour and coolest DJ. Now, he just wants his coronavirus-panicked dad to let him back in the house.
While residents in his hometown of Nanuet, NY, were hunkering down to avoid corona, 21-year-old Matt and his friends from Springfield College in Massachusetts hit up spring break in South Padre Island, Texas — and stayed there against the advice of his father, Peter Levine.
“I spoke with him every day and told him that maybe they should come home,” Peter, 52, and a salesman, told The Post. “I was aggravated. The news here was getting worse and worse. Matt sent me pictures of him and his friends congregating outdoors and listening to live music. It’s the scene you would not want to be in.”
Finally, Peter told Matt and his buddies that they could not stay at the family home after the trip, as they’d planned. “His grandparents live here and there is no need to expose them to god knows what he had been exposed to!” Peter explained.
