Wynn Resorts CEO calls for Las Vegas Strip to conditionally reopen in mid- to late May
Wynn Resorts Chief Executive Officer Matt Maddox on Sunday called on the Nevada governor to begin to reopen the Las Vegas Strip in mid- to late May with extensive safety measures in place, assuming the state is in line with certain benchmarks around the spread of the coronavirus.

Pubs could stay closed until Christmas as they’ll be “last to reopen” when coronavirus lockdown ends
Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove refused to rule out the possibility yesterday.

Reopen The Las Vegas Strip?
It’s hard enough to figure out how to reopen a place as densely populated as New York City, with its massive public transit systems and crowded streets. But how about Las Vegas? Granted, Sin City’s full-time population is less than one-tenth that of the Big Apple at a bit under 650,000. But when it’s up and running, Vegas hosts more than 100,000 tourists per day for a total of nearly 40 million per year, all packed into 135 square miles. Talk about a social distancing nightmare.

UK: The Fight against COVID-19: An Update from Dr. Jay Bhattacharya
A month ago, I interviewed Dr. Jay Bhattacharya just as the COVID-19 crisis was shuttering the economy and governments were ordering citizens to shelter at home. In that interview, Dr. Bhattacharya mentioned that he himself would soon be conducting tests for COVID in Santa Clara County, Calif., one of the most active hotspots in the country.

Most Movie Theaters in Georgia Won’t Reopen Next Week Despite Governor’s Plans

Doctors in Japan have warned that the country’s medical system could collapse amid a wave of new coronavirus cases.

Coronavirus has mutated into at least 30 different strains new study finds
The study was carried out by Professor Li Lanjuan and colleagues from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China and published in a non-peer reviewed paper released on website on Sunday.

Government Might Not be Up to the Challenge — but Individuals Are
If you get the sense that government is not up to the challenge presented by a public health crisis, and the economic fallout that results from it, you’re probably right. That’s because government is, at its core, a political enterprise—and as most Americans will readily admit, bickering politicians aren’t generally the best at getting things done in an effective and efficient manner.

The Foolish GOP Proposal to Open China to American Lawsuits over COVID-19
The bill introduced by Senators Marsha Blackburn and Martha McSally, however well-intentioned, would have disastrous consequences.

Las Vegas Mayor Shocks CNN: I Offered Our City As A “Control Group” To See What Happens If We Opened Everything Up

New York’s Frightening New “Do-Not-Resuscitate” Guidelines For Cardiac Patients
If you’re one of the people who are crazy enough to venture out onto the streets of New York City this week (or simply can’t avoid it for professional reasons) and you’re unlucky enough to collapse on the sidewalk from a heart attack, I suppose all we can say is it’s been nice knowing you. Under new guidelines issued by the state Health Department, paramedics finding people in a state of cardiac arrest without a heartbeat are not supposed to go through the usual routines of attempting to restart the patient’s heart and respiration. In other words, assuming you are seen by an EMT who is following this guideline, once you’re dead you’re supposed to politely remain on your trip to the afterlife.

Welp: Sweden Withdraws Study Suggesting That One-Third Of Stockholm’s Population May Have Been Infected
It seemed like a bad sign last night when even an ignoramus like me was able to spot a problem with one of their claims. According to Forbes, Sweden’s top epidemiologist said at a press conference that “the study indicates that for every confirmed case of COVID-19, a further 999 people are likely to have been infected with the virus without knowing it.” But the country’s public health agency later contradicted him and said that’s not true. Why?

Communist China’s Coronavirus Disinformation Campaign May Be Bigger Than We Realized
A report in the New York Times today expanded on the scope of the massive disinformation campaign China has created over the COVID-19 pandemic it caused. The report partly reveals the massive nature of the coronavirus campaign by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to take the offensive against the US government. A global propaganda war is underway, with China reportedly adopting many of the tactics employed by Russian disinformation agents over the past several years.

We’re Still Learning About the Pandemic’s Early Days
On the menu today: California drops a bombshell, confirming that the first American death from coronavirus occurred February 6, not February 28; a long look at the World Military Games in Wuhan in October 2019, weeks before the known start date of the virus outbreak; and a good proposal for accountability in U.S. policies regarding China.

Eighth Circuit Allows Arkansas COVID-19 Abortion Restriction to Stand
In a ruling yesterday, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals determined that Arkansas may restrict most surgical abortions as part of its prohibition on elective procedures during the COVID-19 outbreak. Earlier this month, a federal judge had temporarily blocked the policy and ruled that the state could not lawfully restrict abortions as part of its overall order.

On Point: The COVID-19 Debacle Previews the Chinese Communist Party’s Imperial World Order
Beijing’s calculated deceit regarding the COVID-19 pandemic’s November 2019 origin in Wuhan, China, to its ongoing 2020 A.D. global massacre provides Planet Earth’s residents with a preview of the Chinese Communist Party imperial world order that Chinese President Xi Jinping has promised to buy, slap together when no one with a brain is looking or impose via raw military terror by 2049.

Lockdown-free Sweden sees one of its highest days for new recorded coronavirus deaths and infections with 172 fatalities and 682 new cases

Sweden Sees Big Jump In New Cases And Corrects Multiplier Of Unseen Cases
Sweden saw a big jump in the number of confirmed cases today

China Imposes Restrictions On Northern Part Of Country Due To New Outbreak
This isn’t a Wuhan-style lockdown. For now, the restrictions require “preventing outsiders from visiting other neighborhoods and warning residents to stay away from high-risk areas.” But my operating assumption on COVID news from China is that things are always ten times worse than they’re actually telling us.

NY doctors try new treatment protocol after detecting alarming coronavirus symptom
Signs of blood thickening and clotting were being detected in different organs by doctors from different specialties. This would turn out to be one of the alarming ways the virus ravages the body, as doctors there and elsewhere were starting to realize.

Poll: Religious and Non-Religious Americans Split on Ventilator Rationing
A new survey from the Pew Research Center has a variety of interesting figures on how Americans are responding to the COVID-19 crisis. One of the most intriguing sections of the survey gauges public opinion on how to allocate medical care to sick patients when hospitals are dealing with shortages.

The Models Weren’t Right . . . but That Death Toll Is Climbing Closer to That Projection
I don’t get all that upset when people point out that the projections from the model from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation often turns out to be far from reality. This model is trying to account for all kinds of variables that can’t be known, only estimated and guessed. (Think of my example of the infection on the beach, and whether the person returns to a sparsely populated young community or a densely populated old community. One small variable, far-reaching consequences for the number of infections and deaths.)

Coronavirus: First patients injected in UK vaccine trial
The first human trial in Europe of a coronavirus vaccine has begun in Oxford.

As Number Of Cases Surge, Swedish Officials Warn Bars That Ignore Social Distancing Guidelines Will Be Closed
Yesterday I pointed out that this has been a tough week for Swedish officials attempting to guide the country through the coronavirus crisis. After suggesting the curve was flattening last week, they were hit with two days in a row of the highest ever jumps in the number of deaths (185 on Tuesday and 172 on Wednesday). In addition, Thursday saw a big jump in the number of new cases (751). Today the news was even worse

Democrats to Replace Biden at Convention Over Tara Reade Sexual Assault Allegations?
While the mainstream media has mostly kept a lid on this story, the sexual assault allegations by Tara Reade against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden aren’t going away soon. As PJM’s Rick Moran reported earlier this week, the D.C. police are treating the allegations as an “active and ongoing” investigation. Many liberals are turning a blind eye to the story, but there are some who have a vested interest in keeping this story alive and front and center: Bernie Bros.

“Fear, Desperation” Drive Largest Month For Gun Sales Ever
Last month we saw reports indicating that requests for background checks and foot traffic at gun shops were spiking in an unprecedented fashion. As it turns out, those weren’t just people going window shopping. The figures for March are now in and a staggering 2.3 million firearms were sold in the United States (an all-time record), many to self-described first-time buyers. But whether they were old hands or new to the process, many of them offered the same reasons for wanting a firearm. The Free Beacon interviewed a number of recent shoppers and they all expressed concerns over the possibility that the rule of law might begin crumbling if the coronavirus gets out of control and they wanted to be ready to protect their families and homes in the event of widespread civil unrest.

AOC Celebrates Oil Workers Losing Their Livelihoods: ‘You Absolutely Love to See It’
On Monday, U.S. oil prices fell below zero for the first time ever, shocking observers and raising doubts about the solvency of oil and gas companies coming out of the coronavirus crisis and the oil selling war between Saudi Arabia and Russia. These negative prices were distressing news for the U.S. economy, threatening the livelihoods of oil and gas workers and the availability of the gasoline Americans will need after the crisis ends. Yet Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) saw them as a reason to celebrate.

Fusion Energy Gets Ready to Shine—Finally
Three decades and $23.7 billion later, the 25,000-ton International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor is close to becoming something like the sun.

Pope Francis: ‘We Have Sinned Against the Earth … the Earth Never Forgives’

He claimed that humans have “sinned against the earth” by disobeying God’s command to be good stewards of it.



Government in Healthcare


Health Care . . . Reimagined
In the tumult of the coronavirus pandemic response — which has exposed significant problems (and opportunities) with how health care is administered — Americans for Prosperity has announced the launch of a major “reimagine” campaign to reform impediments to delivering services to the ill, as well as to “better prepare” the country for another deadly viral outbreak.

Dutch Supreme Court Approves Euthanasia for Dementia
More than 20 years ago, the Dutch Supreme Court approved the assisted suicide of a woman in despair because her children had died.

NASA Releases Stunning Hi-Res Photos of Jupiter’s Swirling Atmosphere
Since first landing on Jupiter in 2016, NASA’s Juno space probe has provided us with a wealth of information about the solar system’s largest planet. In particular, its JunoCam—which beams back photographs taken by the probe—has allowed the public to see incredible visuals of Jupiter. NASA has highlighted one image in particular from Juno’s 25th flyby of the planet, also known as a perijove. What stands out immediately are two thin lines that move up Jupiter from top to bottom.

Oh My: Michigan Legislature Calls Special Session– To Strip Whitmer Of Emergency Powers
Couldn’t happen to a nicer petty martinet, nor at a better time. Winston Churchill once wrote that bad kings make for good law, and Michigan’s legislature might put that into action in a special session starting today. After Whitmer’s arbitrary and capricious COVID-19 shutdown order put the state’s unemployment at the highest in the nation, the legislature wants immediate oversight over Whitmer’s handling of the crisis. And they want to start reviewing bills to restrict the powers that she may have abused

Economy & Taxes


Yes, America Should Build More. But Let’s Be Clear About the Primary Obstacle . . .
Netscape co-founder and venture capitalist Marc Andreessen offers a really appealing essay spotlighting how one of the most humiliating factors in this entire coronavirus outbreak is how vast swaths of American industry, government, and society seem flatfooted and haplessly incapable of mobilizing for a crisis. Our big institutions and leaders not only lack the ability, they never planned to build that ability\

A Master Class On the Perils of Regulation
Economic regulation is always presented as serving the public good, but often it is merely rent-seeking by powerful interests. Even when well-intentioned, it more often than not has negative unintended consequences. Tomorrow at noon Central, Martha Njolomole, an Economist at Center of the American Experiment, will present the fourth in the Center’s Master Class in Public Policy series, on the perils of regulation.

What’s Next For North Korea If Kim Jong-Un Is Dead?
Despite repeated denials from the government and state-run media about the status of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s health, the fact remains that nobody has seen him in public in weeks. The various claims and rumors making the rounds range from Kim being in recovery from surgery at a private residence to assertions that he’s brain dead or even deceased. The hermit kingdom isn’t really big on sharing news, particularly if it’s of the bad variety, so we won’t know anything until they’re ready to either produce him or offer some other sort of proof.

Rice genetically engineered to resist heat waves can also produce up to 20% more grain
“This is exciting news,” says Maria Ermakova of Australian National University, who works on improving photosynthesis. The genetic modification worked in three kinds of plants—a mustard that is the most common plant model, tobacco, and rice, suggesting any crop plant could be helped. The work bucked conventional wisdom among photosynthesis scientists, and some plant biologists wonder exactly how the added gene produces the benefits. Still, Peter Nixon, a plant biochemist at Imperial College London, predicts the study will “attract considerable attention.”




Dictators, Double Standards, and More
My Impromptus today begins with a couple of North Korean defectors whom National Review readers have met before: Thae Yong-ho and Ji Seong-ho. I have talked with and written about both. Extraordinary men (and you would be hard-pressed to find a North Korean defector who was not extraordinary). They have been elected to the South Korean parliament. That is an amazing story, on many levels.

The War on Homeschooling
About Elizabeth Bartholet and homeschooling, Alexandra de Sanctis writes: “Though she doesn’t acknowledge it, the result of her ban on homeschooling would be that wealthy parents can continue to avoid public schools by sending their children to expensive private institutions while a dearth of school-choice policies and a lack of financial resources leave lower-income parents with no options at all.”

Bring Taiwan in from the cold
China’s behavior during the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak has been disgraceful — marked by deceit and an unwillingness to cooperate with the rest of the world until it was too late. In addition, there’s reason to believe that the virus originated in a Chinese lab that did not meet safety standards.

The Attack on Homeschoolers Is an Attack on American Ideals
Our “democratic values” differ from Europe’s. Look it up: That’s kind of the whole point of America.

We Cannot “Reopen” America
No matter when government stay-at-home orders are revoked, the American economy will not reopen. Because the source of the economic shock is not government orders. It’s the pandemic.
