3 October 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – Yesterday we woke up with the news that President Trump and FLOTUS tested positive for SAR-CoV-2. The result came after he spent months playing down the severity of the outbreak that has killed more than 1 million people worldwide and hours after insisting that the end of the pandemic is in sight. This morning we learned that the president had a low-grade fever, congestion and a cough. A couple of hours later aids close to the President said that since his symptoms worsened as the hours wore on, he was flown to the Walter Reed Medical Center. What a year it has been so far and it’s not over yet… The threats have come in rapid succession: terrorism, the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, and last not least the quaking of our democracy in the Western world. Speculation about the President’s health will only fray nerves and further destabilize the situation and the conspiracy theorists and disinformation trolls will do their best to maximize the turmoil. So, get well, Mr. President for your sake and for the sake of the world. Today’s picture is from 4 years ago when we were enjoying a fall leaf-peeping trip in New England. The world seemed to be a better place at that time - Bar Harbor, ME, USA
