In other news, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) says they see a global recession at least as deep as the Great Recession forming this year with a recovery not beginning until 2021 at the earliest.

Meanwhile, Trump announced that Ford and GM would immediately start making medical equipment, but that's not true. They're months away from shifting production.

Finally, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says the global spread of the virus is accelerating.

He said it was 67 days from the first reported case to reach the first 100,000 cases; 11 days for the second 100,000 cases and just four days for the third 100,000 cases.

Tedros said he would speak with heads of state and government from the G20 countries, saying he would ask them to help increase production, avoid export bans, and ensure fair distribution of “lifesaving tools” that are facing a growing shortage.

I don't know what's going to happen from one day to the next, but there may be some light posting days here and there because, honestly, I could write up every bad headline I see but I really don't think that adds anything of value and it's not my goal to increase the number of horrific stories we're all seeing already. I'm going to try to focus on the bigger picture as I always have instead of pulling on every single thread.

My own state of Ohio is on lockdown effective tonight.
