    The biggest US mall owner prepares to reopen 49 properties. Here's how that will work

    The biggest mall owner in the U.S. is preparing to open a number of its properties across the country, as states such as South Carolina and Georgia start to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic, according to an internal memo that was obtained by CNBC.

    Simon Property Group is reopening 49 of its malls and outlet centers Friday through Monday, the memo said, including Haywood Mall in Greenville, South Carolina, and Lenox Square in Atlanta. (A full list of all 49 locations and exact reopening dates is below.)
    ...
    Business hours at the malls and outlet centers will be limited to 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, to allow for cleaning overnight, according to the memo. Simon said it will regularly sanitize high-touch areas such as food court tables, escalators, door knobs and electronic directories. And it is encouraging retailers to do the same in their stores.

    Meantime, Simon said it will encourage shoppers to take their temperatures before going to the mall. At the mall, it will make free temperature testing available to customers, using infrared thermometers, it said.

    Free CDC-approved masks and hand sanitizing packets will also be available to the shoppers who ask for them. Simon said it will encourage shoppers to wear masks or some sort of facial coverings while they shop. Simon is mandating its employees wear masks while they are working and take “frequent breaks for handwashing.”

    Total confirmed cases per million, or in general, are not the same for Canada and the USA. Death rate is at 5.5% in both countries.

    Walker's plague doctor outfit 'terrifying kids'

    Image captionThe sight of the individual out walking in a plague doctor outfit has provoked mixed reactions
    Police have said they are keen to trace a person who has been walking around a village dressed as a 17th Century plague doctor.

    Residents of Hellesdon, near Norwich, have been both "terrified" and amused by the individual dressed in a black cloak, hat, and pointed beak-like mask.

    Doctors treating those with the Black Death believed the mask acted as a filter against the disease.

    Police said they would like to give the individual some "words of advice".

    It is thought the person has been dressing this way for about two weeks for their daily walk, with a photograph posted on a village social media page attracting many different points of view.

    Coronavirus COVID-19 - Global Health Pandemic #51

    Thank you, that was a good read about genome sequencing from the NY Times. The follow up article dated April 22, 2020 has some more scientific detective work:

    Covid-19 Arrived in Seattle. Where It Went From There Stunned the Scientists.

    For children and the non-scientist, I recommend the National Geographic article below as a primer. There are some good color coded graphics to illustrate genome sequencing, mutations and a layman's explanation of what testing may infer about the origins of the virus and the path it took.

    How coronavirus mutations can track its spread—and disprove conspiracies

    I'm optimistic that the international network of scientists, with the help of computers, will find a way to help contain/mitigate the worst of this pandemic.

    Good and bad locally. Number of covid-19 deaths continues to rise while possible covid-19 hospital investigations continues to drop.

    Have heard that the annual Memorial Day parade was cancelled. :(

    Can you compare different countries?

    Everyone wants to know how well their country is tackling coronavirus, compared with others. But you have to make sure you're comparing the same things.

    The United States, for example, has far more Covid-19 deaths than any other country - as of 20 April, a total of over 40,000 deaths.

    But the US has a population of 330 million people.

    If you take the five largest countries in Western Europe - the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain - their combined population is roughly 320 million.

    And the total number of registered coronavirus deaths from those five countries, as of 20 April, was over 85,000 - more than twice that of the US.

    So, individual statistics don't tell the full story.

    For comparisons to be useful, says Rowland Kao, professor of data science at the University of Edinburgh, there are two broad issues to consider.

    "Does the underlying data mean the same thing? And does it make sense to compare two sets of numbers if the epidemiology [all the other factors surrounding the spread of the disease] is different?"

    Counting deaths
    Let's look at some of the numbers first. There are differences in how countries record Covid-19 deaths.

    France, for example, includes deaths in care homes in the headline numbers it produces every day, but the daily headline figures for England only include deaths in hospitals.

    There's also no accepted international standard for how you measure deaths, or their causes.

    Does somebody need to have been tested for coronavirus to count towards the statistics, or are the suspicions of a doctor enough? Does the virus need to be the main cause of death, or does any mention on a death certificate count?

    Are you really comparing like with like?
