In lighter COVID/economic news, if our bullshit economy couldn’t get any weirder, an American man used $57,000 of COVID relief money to buy a holographic Charizard (that’s a Pokémon card, for you old folks). Because he wasn’t actually entitled to the relief money, the government confiscated the ultra-rare card. In more serious COVID news, on Friday, China locked down Changchun, a city of 9M people. China is facing the highest number of new cases since February 2020. Their zero-COVID strategy may be coming to an end. Denmark is experiencing record COVID deaths not long after restrictions ended. South Korea is grappling with all-time case/deaths, and Japan is coming off its all-time peak case/death count, while Vietnam’s new case count is setting records every day. Let’s not forget that the height of the Black Plague lasted 7 years—and it took more than 500 years to vanish. We are not done with COVID, no matter what the TV people say. In more COVID news, Long-Covid is really bad for your brain. And the global death count for this pandemic may be 3x higher than the official reported number. That would make 18M+ deaths in two years. On March 11, 2020, just over two years ago, the WHO declared COVID-19 to be a pandemic, and it ain’t over yet. But all around the world, all COVID restrictions are being lifted. The people apparently found a better distraction—War.
