NYT: A very helpful article on how the coronavirus affects a person's body — lungs, and beyond — with some reassuring details about why about 80% of people have relatively mild symptoms, 20% have more severe symptoms and (using China as a guide) about 2% die.

If you're a New Yorker, text COVID to 692-692 for regular NYC updates.

KTLA: Trump is blocking states from using Medicaid to help COVID-19 victims. He wants people to die — get past the incredulity.

Um ... first, nice to out Mom's face-lift. Second, being trans is the same as a face tattoo or lip injections? He's only 20, but still — fuck off.

POLITICO: Welp, Andrew Gillum's career is over.

YOUTUBE: Russian ... group? ... Little Big's “Uno” is the country's official Eurovision entry. A lot of stupidity going on here, from the weird (and out-of-nowhere) Latin vibe, the guy's ballroom aping and the pale white guy with black lips (an inverse of blackface?). Somebody tried hard for a “Gangnam Style”-style creation:
