I'm from Florida. Our coronavirus crisis doesn't surprise me
‘America's weirdest state' offers an extreme case of the country's broader failure to take the pandemic seriouslyI have spent the past three months in my home state of Florida, during which time I've watched it become the hottest of coronavirus hotspots on the planet. This week began with the announcement that the state registered over 15,000 new infections in a single day, which was almost 3,000 more daily cases than any state previously had recorded since the pandemic began. If Florida was a country, according to Reuters, it would have the world's fourth-highest tally of new Covid-19 cases over that 24-hour span, trailing only the US, Brazil and India.Florida has a well-deserved reputation as America's weirdest state, so perhaps the pandemic punishment being meted out to us right now shouldn't come as a shock. A 1948 Fortune magazine study observed: "Florida is a study in abnormal psychology, useful in signaling the … hidden derangements of the national mood." A lot of bad trends in American life find their most bizarre and refined forms in the Sunshine state, which is why "Florida Man" has become shorthand for the bad behavior of too many state residents. As far as the present pandemic is concerned, the simplest and most convincing explanation for why Florida is experiencing an explosion of Covid-19 cases it that it is an extreme case of the broader American failure to take the pandemic seriously.Considerable blame rests with the state's Republican governor, Ron DeSantis.

German study finds no evidence coronavirus spreads in schools
Schools do not play a major role in spreading the coronavirus, according to the results of a German study released on Monday. The study, the largest carried out on schoolchildren and teachers in Germany, found traces of the virus in fewer than 1 per cent of teachers and children. Scientists from Dresden Technical University said they believe children may act as a "brake" on chains of infection. Prof Reinhard Berner, the head of pediatric medicine at Dresden University Hospital and leader of the study, said the results suggested the virus does not spread easily in schools. "It is rather the opposite," Prof Berner told a press conference. "Children act more as a brake on infection. Not every infection that reaches them is passed on." The study tested 2,045 children and teachers at 13 schools — including some where there have been cases of the virus. But scientists found antibodies in just 12 of those who took part. "This means that the degree of immunization in the group of study participants is well below 1 per cent and much lower then we expected," said Prof Berner. "This suggests schools have not developed into hotspots." The study was carried out at schools in three different districts in the region of Saxony.

US brands Beijing's South China Sea claims illegal
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday the United States would treat Beijing's pursuit of resources in the dispute-rife South China Sea as illegal, ramping up support for Southeast Asian nations and triggering a furious response from Beijing. It was the latest forceful statement by President Donald Trump's administration to challenge China, which he has increasingly cast as an enemy ahead of November elections. "We are making clear: Beijing's claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them," Pompeo said in a statement.
