Pandemic Diary Day 11: COVID-19 Deaths Double, Some Relief on the Way

Dear Diary,

The unknown breeds fear. 

When people don't know what to expect, they get nervous.

Right now, the nation is in limbo during a pandemic because the Congress is and the lack of leadership at the top.

Partisan hacks from both parties couldn't agree to pass a stimulus bill to bail out the country in its time of need again yesterday. Talk about pathetic!

The good news is the Senate passed the bill today and it's going to the house.

Observations and News Bits
**Governors across the nation say feds not taking their calls for help seriously. By any measure, Trump's Coronavirus Task Farce has been a dismal failure full of lies and exaggerations.

**There are at least 30,811 confirmed cases of coronavirus across the state of New York. Over half are from New York City. Gov. Cuomo has been a rock star fighting for the state, but I'm afraid things are going to get worse in the days and weeks ahead because of medical supply shortages and the need for more facilities for patients.

**Young people continue to ignore social distancing standards by gathering together outside and inside with coronavirus denial parties. Until they get it, seniors and people with predisposing conditions are going to get COVID-19 from these rebels.

On the Homefront - Medford, Oregon
**Spring showers today, and forecasted for the next week. That's okay, we need it.

**Our governor, Kate Brown, has joined other governors blaming the feds for shortages of protective equipment.

**Oregon is delaying tax filing until July 15th, matching the new federal deadline.

**Shirley and I have been keeping busy doing projects around the house. She is busy redoing our guest bathroom. Painting, new fixtures, etc., while I hammer away at a keyboard half the day! Seems like I have a lot to say.

**Our precious pets have been providing entertainment. Try to imagine a pug and an Iggy playing tag with three cats! It's a hoot watching the gang tear through the house like furry demons!

What a year! An impeachment and a pandemic in just the first three months. Better buckle up for a rough ride partner. We haven't seen anything yet.
