Hola communicable pals,
                                    The complete hardest thing about autograph a weekly coronavirus newsletter is coming up with the lede paragraph. I always spend more time than I should trying to come up with article affecting and honest that’s also hopeful and bright. 

But it never quite works out that way. Not only is polite small talk not in my wheel house, but I don’t feel hopeful and bright and none of the news I have to share can back up those tones. 

And that means more doom and gloom. But I think it’s necessary. Our better failures during the pandemic, globally, haven’t been abstruse or accurate ones. We have aggregate we need to end the communicable whenever we, the global community, choose to. 

Want to be done with lockdowns and COVID-19? Wear a mask, social distance, and animate anybody else to do the same. Countries that have been acknowledged at this are already starting to open. 

The better botheration we face is human ignorance. Evil takes a close second, but for evil to have any access benightedness must thrive. 

Take for archetype the most evil aggregation in the US right now: this abominable “gig economy” startup that purports to hire people as action servers to evict US renters who are behind in paying their rent.

Here’s the rub: It doesn’t matter what you might *think* about people paying their bills. Maybe you’re an elitist asshole who believes the ableist BS line about how “everyone has an opportunity” in the US and you look down your smug nose at those disturbing with rent right now.

Maybe you’re a bleeding heart who thinks that landlords shouldn’t exist and anybody should have government apartment accessible to them. It doesn’t matter.

Because the law is clear: Renters in U.S. cannot be evicted through the end of the year due to coronavirus. This is per an order from the Trump administration.

So how does a aggregation that hires gig workers get away with arena headhunter for apathetic landlords trying to illegally evict people during an bread-and-butter adversity caused by a pandemic? Benightedness and evil. 

They rely on misinformation and lies. They tell people that if they don’t get out the police will arrest them (false), and that they’ll end up owing extra fees and courts costs (false), or they use strongarm browbeating techniques like shutting off utilities and afflictive tenants. 

It’s accessible the aggregation is a prank (though, according to Vice, its parent aggregation checks out). But, even if it is, it’s an evil one whose perpetrators deserve civil action at best and bent case at worst. 

By the numbers

Last week we took a look at the vaccine outlook.

This week, let’s switch things up for the listicle lovers out there. Here are the top five most apprenticed myths about the pandemic:

5. . According to health experts, masks are more able than other countermeasures (including vaccine!) aside from isolation.
4. . That’s not how vaccines work. If we’re lucky and the whole world starts social break and cutting masks and we get several vaccines soon, we might be abutting half time.
3.  BZZZZT! Incorrect! Several people have not only apprenticed COVID-19 a second time after recovering, but suffered worse affection upon accepting it again.
2.  Wrong. It also effects children, frontline workers, and altogether advantageous adults.
1.  Lol, guess surgeons who wear them for 12 hours at a time don’t know annihilation about health?

We’re all in this together. Even if it feels like aggregate is absolutely accessory right now… because it kind of is… we’re still associates of the same human race. 

Maybe 2021 will be different. But the only way that’s going to happen is if we all collectively decide to look out for one addition no matter what.

The good news is that doing so is easy peasy lemon squeezy:

1. Wear a mask.
2. Stay 2-3 meters away from others in public spaces.
3. Support government admiral who take the communicable seriously.
