Quarantine time is a good time to bury bad news, to paraphrase a certain Downing Street PR person.

Speaking of which,  I hear Cummings has had a bad test result.

I don't know how much play this is getting in the US, but France and Germany are fucking pissed over this

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/02/global-battle-coronavirus-equipment-masks-tests

Quote
US buyers waving wads of cash managed to wrest control of a consignment of masks as it was about to be dispatched from China to one of the worst-hit coronavirus areas of France, according to two French officials.

The masks were on a plane at Shanghai airport that was ready to take off when the US buyers turned up and offered three times what their French counterparts were paying.

Jean Rottner, a doctor and president of the GrandEst regional council, said part of the order of several million masks heading for the region, where intensive care units are inundated with Covid-19 patients, had been lost to the buyers.

“On the tarmac, they arrive, get the cash out … so we really have to fight,” he told RTL radio.

Rottner would not identify the buyers, who they were working for or which US state the cargo was flown to, but another French official also involved in procuring masks from China said the group were acting for the US government.

And yes, they are apparently paying in cash. So that's not at all dodgy.

I keep flashing back to that scene in Children of Men, when the secretary is like "more American refugees have arrived, seeking asylum", and the politician is like "fuck em, they are getting what they deserve"

Quote
Minnesota-based 3M says the Trump administration is trying to prevent it from exporting its N95 respirators, the high-grade facemasks that are in high demand and dwindling supply around the world as health professionals, and now members of the North American public, try to defend themselves against the novel coronavirus.

The company, which calls itself a critical supplier of the masks around the world, says there would be “significant humanitarian implications” to acceding to the U.S. demand to limit exports to Canada and Latin America.

“In addition, ceasing all export of respirators produced in the United States would likely cause other countries to retaliate and do the same, as some have already done,” 3M said in a statement Friday.

“If that were to occur, the net number of respirators being made available to the United States would actually decrease. That is the opposite of what we and the administration, on behalf of the American people, both seek.”
"When I say 'engineering', I have unreasonable expectations.  It must - as you know - look good in PADS AND give you plenty of help ducking and weaving in meetings.  But it must also, at some distant point in time, function.  If it does not, then you must accept that you are not in fact an engineer but instead an MBA.  Hang your head in SHAME, sinner!"

It's getting no play, just about. Stealing the neighbor's Amazon delivery and slamming the door in their face is a really great idea in a time where we're all going to need each other.

I don't even know where to begin. I guess the worst thing is the idea of the fed as backup instead of interstate coordinator, but pushing for reopening "the arenas" is just as bad in effect.

Seen on the news that Trump has announced the next two weeks is going to be rough. I can only assume his vocabulary doesn't cover what the subsequent months are going to be like.

Now is definitely a good time to threaten to defund the World Health Organisation.
