COVID-19: March 17, 2020
Trying to take in all the news is like putting your face into an open firehose. And yesterday, I tried.
Slept very fitfully last night. Woke up exhausted. Feeling very down today.
Looked at news and twitter less today.
We confirmed today that the Royal St Pedestrian Mall has once again been suspended to discourage people from gathering. We will follow up when a sense of normalcy returns. If any street performers need support, contact us and we will direct you to resources as best we can.— MaCCNO (@musicculture504) March 17, 2020

Coronavirus Growth in Western Countries: March 16 Update
Almost everyone is still on the Italian growth path. The big exception is Spain, which is in terrible shape, and the UK and Sweden, which continue to be a little under the Italian trendline. The United States remains almost perfectly on the Italian trendline, and there’s really no reason to think we can get off it before the next two or three weeks at the earliest.
- People are saying we’re nine days behind Italy, so… the USA will pass 30,000 cases on Thursday, March 26.
