What can Dems do to replace some of the on the edge hourly breaking news"?

YES YES YES... For four years it's been non-stop crazy horror. Normalcy, yes!!! But listening to Dana Bash right now...snooze.

But don't think boring is normalcy. Surely there are good ideas to add some excitement to normalcy.

National lottery of some kind? Biden surprises a classroom somewhere? I got nothing.

COVID-19 could complicate Pelosi's path to Speaker next year


As Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) seeks the support to keep the gavel for another term, her allies are keeping close watch on a potential wild card that could complicate her path next month: COVID-19.

Pelosi is already facing a much slimmer majority in the next Congress, after Democrats were clobbered at the polls in November, meaning she can afford far fewer Democratic defections than the 15 who opposed her two years ago. And lawmakers must be present on the House floor to cast their vote for Speaker, precluding the option for members to vote remotely, as many have done throughout the pandemic.

The combination of factors creates the chance that Democrats could face a dilemma on Jan. 3 in which Pelosi locks up the Democratic support to remain Speaker, but coronavirus concerns — illnesses, quarantines or otherwise — prevent a sufficient number of them from being in the Capitol to log their votes.

Best common day by day Covid progression I have seen..

Day 1 (the first day symptoms begin): Most of those infected – 88% – will have a fever and feel tired. Many also have muscle pain and a dry cough.

Some people, around 10% according to the study from China, experience nausea or have diarrhea in the days just before the fever begins.

Day 2-4: The fever persists as does the cough.

Day 5: Breathing difficulty begins on day 5. It is especially likely to happen if the person has a preexisting condition or is older.

Day 6: Breathing difficulty, cough and fever persist. Some people describe chest tightening or having a feeling that a “band” is around their chest.

Day 7: It is on this day that people who have been experiencing persistent chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath and bluish lips or face are admitted to the hospital.

People who are suffering less severe symptoms will likely see those symptoms begin to get better.

Day 8: According to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 15% of people with COVID-19 will develop symptoms of ARDs, or acute respiratory distress syndrome.

According to the Mayo Clinic, ARDs “happens when fluid builds up in the tiny, elastic air sacs (alveoli) in your lungs. The fluid keeps your lungs from filling with enough air, which means less oxygen reaches your bloodstream. This deprives your organs of the oxygen they need to function.”

Day 10: If breathing difficulties worsen, it is on this day that patients who are in the hospital will tend to enter the intensive care unit.

Day 12: In the Wuhan study, fever ended for most people on Day 12. Many still had a cough.

Days 13-14: For those who will survive the virus, breathing difficulties are generally ending on these days.

Day 18: For those who do not survive the virus, the average number of days from onset of symptoms until death is 18 1/2 days.
