What I Learned Today – Tuesday, July 28

Florida sees a serious uptick in child Covid-19 hospitalizations. Schools open soon.

78% of Covid-19 patients show signs of heart damage after recovery.  That’s the thing with this disease.  It’s not just the mortality rate, but how much other complications it introduces in those who recover. Did I mention that schools open in a few weeks.

A Broward county school memo is directing employees not to reveal covid-19 statuses of themselves or anybody else in the district.  This is the opposite of contact tracing. Florida is running a textbook operation of everything you ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO DO during a pandemic. All those Florida Man jokes were accurate.

Andrea Bocelli has an amazing voice.  It’s a shame that he’s a complete moron.

The NFL has cancelled the preseason. Not sure how they think they can have a season at all given a sport like baseball which is fairly socially distanced in terms of the field (not so much in the dugout) can’t go a weekend without having an outbreak.

Dr. Fauci’s baseball card sets an all time high sales record. I’m sure that’s not the reason why last night Trump was retweeting conspiracy theories against the good doctor. He wouldn’t be that thin-skinned or jealous. Totally not like him.

Trump tweeted that he was not going to be able to throw out the first pitch for a Yankee game on August 15th. The Yankees were a bit confused because, well, they hadn’t invited Trump to throw out the first pitch. Turns out Trump was just jealous that Fauci threw out the first pitch for a game last week. He. Lies. About. EVERYTHING!

Speaking of Trump tweets, he went on a hydroxychloroquine bender last night tweeting and retweeting conspiracy theories and promoting the malaria drug that does nothing for covid-19 except cause more complications. Two of the tweets were so batshit insane that Twitter stepped in and deleted them.

And now, junior’s account was just suspended:

The reddit thread of the day: What’s something that a lot of people are missing out on because they don’t know about it?
