MAYDAY 1609: SUNDAY, MARCH 15, 2020

“Testing is essential for identifying those people who’ve been infected. For coping with the true scope, of any outbreak. It’s in testing

for the coronavirus, that we are failing. And this failure in testing, may make it much more fatal, and long-lasting.”

“An inability to test for the virus lengthens the life of a pandemic and heightens the mortality of a pandemic. 160 million

— to 214 million — people, just in US, may be infected. 200,000 to 1.7 million people may die. Globally … add many more millions.”

“Sadly I take this too lightly. I even joke about getting the virus from hand shaking referencing a donor in the room who I’d shaken hands

with last Sunday. His hands seemed — clammy — and after we shook sweat from the man’s hand, was left behind , on my hand.”

“With seemingly intelligent blitzkrieg-like speed, the pandemic has extended its reach into the halls of power in nearly no time,

around the world. And if ye want to know what’s happening, notwithstanding, all the drama, just understand … it’s showtime.”

“With startling, seemingly intelligent blitzkrieg-like speed, the pandemic has extended its tendrils into the halls of power in near no time,

around the world. So now, for the anti-heroic President Me, notwithstanding all the drama, verily, it’s showtime.”

“‘Tis indeed, showtime, Vlad and I know. Time to put up or shut up. Is what’s happening to us, to ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’, akin? In

other words, is the novel coronavirus really the enemy? Worse; is the virus the microbial agent of an enemy alien?”

“The ides of a month refers to days that land in the middle of the month, which in months with 31 days means — March 15. The deadline

in Roman times for settling debts, it is also, the day playwright William Shakespeare warned ye about once, upon a time.”
