        Some updates on the numbers. (This is from memory but close.) * 70 total cases, six new today * 3 deaths * ~ 17 recovered I wish the briefings told you a bit about the cases like location, profession, age. This probably exists somewhere.

          Yesterday, the President announced that the quarentine would continue through Semana Santa -- next week. That includes all the ocean and lake beaches being closed. That's a big thing as Semana Santa is really the biggest get-together week of...

                      * At this point I am 99% sure Coronavirus is a bioweapon. * It seems likely it originated at Fort Deitrick in Maryland. * It was spread intentionally at the World Military Games in Wuhan. * It is likely there are multiple...

                              Seven new cases today, six in Guatemala City. The say 87 total but I am confused because it was 70 yesterday.

                              Starting Monday, masks will be a requirement. The government is going to give away three million.
