Los Angeles-based Bess is the author of the book Nobody Will Tell You This But Me and is the writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live. The Emmy-nominated writer is also a regular contributor to The New Yorker’s “Daily Shouts,” and her work has been published in The New Republic, Salon, Wired, The Nation, and elsewhere.

While a lot of countries are thinking of bringing relaxation to their lockdowns, this virus is far over from causing destruction.

According to Johns Hopkins University, there are more than 3.58 million cases of people sick with the coronavirus worldwide and over 250k people have lost their lives because of it. Nearly 69k people died in the United States, 29k in Italy, and nearly 29k in the United Kingdom.

The US now plans to borrow 3 trillion dollars for virus-related financial relief. Meanwhile, The New York Times reports that it obtained an “internal document” that shows that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Federal Emergency Management Agency forecast around 200k new coronavirus cases each day by the end of May and 3k deaths by June 1. In other words, it might be too soon to remove lockdown and celebrate.
