Trump supporters in the US states of Ohio, Michigan and North Carolina who are unhappy with the strict lockdown laws that have been imposed upon them, have staged protests to get the sanctions lifted…

However, the demonstrators in Columbus, Ohio have turned into a comical affair after photographer Joshua A Bickel captured a snap of a group of protestors congregating outside the statehouse atrium…

People immediately noticed that this had a striking similarity to imagery from various zombie horror movies and TV shows like Dawn of the Dead, Shaun of the Dead and The Walking Dead and thus a meme was born.

Yes, the similarity is more than superficial. They share the politics of death.

Pregnant women tested for coronavirus offer another picture of the infection rate

A new study showed that some women who delivered babies in the city in recent weeks had been inflicted with the coronavirus without displaying symptoms.

NewYork-Presbyterian and Columbia University Medical Center screened more than 200 women for the illness upon admission between March 22 and April 4, according to the study.

Among the 33 patients who tested positive, 29 of them had no symptoms.

The study, doctors claim, underscores the risk of COVID-19 among asymptomatic obstetrical patients. It also warns the true prevalence of infection may be underreported because of false-negative results of tests to detect SARS-CoV-2.

One of the doctors who performed the study was on TV, this morning. She made the point that this was one of the first instances we have of a demographic group not expected to show the greatest rate of infection — yet, with 100% testing of 215 women, it indicated an infection rate of more than 15%.
