After ignoring warnings, Israeli ultra-Orthodox hit by virus
Early this week, the streets of the central Israeli city of Bnei Brak were bustling with shoppers as ultra-Orthodox residents, obeying their religious leaders, ignored pleas to stay home in the face of the coronavirus threat. The city has become a lightning rod for anger and frustration by some secular Israelis who allege insular Haredi communities — with disproportionately high numbers of confirmed cases — are undermining national efforts to contain the virus. The pandemic also has threatened to upend deep-seated customs in the religious world, including blind obedience to religious leaders and the belief that religious studies and traditions take precedence over the rules of a modern state.

Malaysia Sees Possible Contraction as Growth Outlook Slashed
(Bloomberg) -- Malaysia's economy could contract this year as the country struggles with a month-long coronavirus lockdown and a steep fall in commodity prices.Gross domestic product could shrink as much as 2% this year or grow as much as 0.5%, Malaysia's central bank said Friday in its annual Economic and Monetary Review. The global pandemic has hit the country's tourism sector hard and is set to dampen private consumption and investment, Bank Negara Malaysia said in the report, while volatile crude-oil prices will affect the country's revenues."We are mindful that the situation surrounding Covid-19 is highly fluid and the situation is constantly shifting," Governor Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus told reporters in a briefing Friday, describing the revised outlook as the bank's "best estimate" at this time. "Great uncertainty remains."The looming contraction comes as Malaysia's neighbors also are seeing this year's growth expectations wiped out. Singapore says GDP could shrink by as much as 4% this year, while Thailand's central bank expects the economy to contract 5.3%. Indonesia, while still forecasting some growth, warned that a contraction isn't out of the question.Eventual RecoveryBNM last month cut its policy rate 25 basis points to 2.50% and slashed banks' reserve requirement ratio by 100 basis points to 2% to bolster the economy amid the downturn.

‘Inexcusable': Dr. Sanjay Gupta Goes Off on Georgia Governor's ‘Stunning' Coronavirus Admission
Dr. Sanjay Gupta was visibly furious on Thursday afternoon as he watched footage of Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp defend his delayed response to the coronavirus pandemic by claiming that he had just found out it can be transmitted asymptomatically. "Those individuals could have been infecting people before they ever felt bad, but we didn't know that until the last 24 hours," Kemp said on Wednesday when he finally announced a state-wide shelter-in-place order. He referred to the revelation as a "game-changer.""I'm really kind of stunned by what he said, because we've known that for quite some time, haven't we?" anchor Anderson Cooper said to his CNN colleague."Anderson, this is inexcusable," Gupta said, adding, "My kids who go to school in Georgia knew that a month ago." He noted that the CDC, which is based in Kemp's state, warned about asymptomatic transmission as early as Feb. 4. "We've known this for a long time," he said. "To say that we've just found out in the last 24 hours and that's why we're doing this, this is just not right." Seth Meyers Exposes Fox News' Sean Hannity Over Huge Coronavirus ‘Hoax' LieGupta went on to say that he finds it "very hard to believe" that Kemp, who narrowly defeated Stacey Abrams in 2018 while serving as Georgia's secretary of state, was being honest in his comments while Cooper said that the governor is guilty of "political malpractice" if not outright "criminal" negligence. "If it's true that he just

New Yorkers Are Right to Be Skeptical of Evangelical-Run Coronavirus Ward in Central Park
If New York City wasn't under a strict stay-at-home order right now, protesters might be marching along Central Park. That's where an evangelical Christian organization called Samaritan's Purse is preparing to open a makeshift COVID-19 ward. The 60-bed emergency field hospital is composed largely of tarp-wrapped tents and will function as a respiratory unit servicing overflow patients from Mount Sinai Hospital.Some New York residents have criticized Samaritan's Purse's presence, citing their spotty record in the field and expressing fears that the conservative religious group's beliefs could even open the door to substandard care or discrimination. City Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted he was "very concerned" about the operation and was sending people from his office to monitor Samaritan's Purse.As a result, conservative Christians exploded on social media, citing the controversy as further proof that their faith is under attack by intolerant liberals and coastal elites who care little about human life.Andrew Walker, a professor at Southern Baptist Seminary, tweeted, "Cultural decadence is allowing intersectionality to determine the acceptability of emergency response." And Peter Hasson, a Catholic editor for conservative news site The Daily Caller, tweeted, "If you're getting mad at the people taking care of the sick during a pandemic, maybe consider the fact that you're not the good guy in this story."As my therapist often reminds me, the human

Nigeria launches 'massive' joint operation against jihadists
Nigeria on Thursday said it had launched a "massive" joint offensive with troops from Chad and Niger against jihadists waging a decade-long insurgency in the region. The announcement comes after Chad's defence minister said Tuesday his country had deployed forces across its neighbours' borders to battle insurgents who killed almost 100 Chadian soldiers last month. Nigeria's military said attacks by fighters from Boko Haram and a splinter group affiliated to the so-called Islamic State group had "necessitated the contiguous nations of the Lake Chad basin to jointly launch this massive onslaught". Details about the operation were sketchy. Nigeria has made repeated claims in the past to have rolled back the insurgents. The 10-year revolt has left at least 36,000 dead and displaced around 1.8 million people in northeast Nigeria alone. The conflict has spilt over into neighbouring countries as the Islamists have established camps and launched attacks against military and civilian targets. The countries around Lake Chad have set up a multinational force to counter the jihadists but it has so far failed to end the bloodshed. The militants on March 23 killed at least 98 Chadian soldiers in an attack on an island army base in Lake Chad. Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno declared the surrounding area a "war zone" as he pledged a "lightning response" to the killings. Chad earlier withdrew some 1,200 troops from Nigeria in January after a months-long mission battling the jihadists.

By the end of the interview, he may have wished he had bailed altogether. Once they got him back online, the hosts spent the first segment asking the senator how he would handle the coronavirus pandemic if he were president. At one point, Sunny Hostin wondered aloud if he was "using" the crisis to push his Medicare for All plan.But things got even spicier during the second segment when Whoopi Goldberg, who has been a fairly clear Joe Biden supporter from the beginning of the 2020 primary, asked Sanders to explain why he hasn't dropped out yet. "I have to ask you this question now because I have been watching to see what you were going to do, and I'm told that you intend to stay in this race for president because you believe there is a path to victory," Goldberg said. "I want to know what that path is because this feels a little bit like it did when you didn't come out when Hillary Clinton was clearly the person folks were going for." As he started to protest, she asked, "Can you explain why you're still in the race and what this path is that you see?" "That's not quite accurate," Sanders replied.

'Ventilators' donated by Elon Musk can't be used on coronavirus patients, health officials say
Elon Musk's ventilator giveaway may do more harm than good.After weeks of brushing off the COVID-19 pandemic as "dumb," the billionaire Tesla founder earlier this week announced he had 1,000 "FDA-approved ventilators" and ended up donating 40 to New York City's hospital system. Except the devices Musk gave away aren't powerful enough to use in the ICU, and health officials have actually warned against using them on COVID-19 patients because they could spread the virus further.What Musk purchased and gave to New York's hospitals were BiPAP machines made by ResMed, a photo shared by the hospital system reveals. ResMed CEO Mick Farrell later confirmed Musk's purchase of 1,000 5-year-old "bi-level, non-invasive ventilators" known as BiPAPs to CNBC, and said it was "fantastic" that Tesla could transport ResMed's product like it did.But hospitals are far more desperate for ventilators more invasive than BiPAP and CPAP machines, which are usually used to treat sleep apnea — many doctors don't even call them "ventilators," the Los Angeles Times' Russ Mitchell reports. In fact, CPAP machines may have only helped spread COVID-19 through the nursing home outside Seattle that was the center of the U.S.'s initial coronavirus outbreak, NPR reports. These machines can "possibly increase the spread of infectious disease by aerosolizing the virus," NPR writes. Health officials in King County, Washington, have since warned against using CPAP machines on coronavirus patie

Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte orders police to 'shoot dead' any 'troublemakers' who break quarantine
Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the police and military to "shoot dead" any "troublemakers" who cause disturbances during the coronavirus quarantine in the Philippines, The Philippine Star reports. The move comes after protestors staged demonstrations over the lack of food and financial aid they've received from the government since the lockdown began in the country on March 17."I will not hesitate [to tell] my soldiers to shoot you. I will not hesitate to order the police to arrest and detain you," said Duterte in his address, adding: "Instead of causing trouble, I'll send you to the grave." The president is infamous for his alleged violations of human rights, previously drawing the fury of the international community over his order for vigilante hit squads to murder suspected drug dealers without due process.Amnesty International condemned Duterte's new statements. "The abusive methods used to punish those accused of breaching quarantine and the vast number of mass arrests that have been carried out to date, against mainly poor people, are further examples of the oppressive approach the government takes against those struggling with basic needs," said the organization's local section director, Butch Olano.The human rights NGO added that more than 17,000 people have already been arrested for violations of the lockdown and curfew in the Philippines, and that "reports have also appeared of inhumane punishments t

McConnell Urges Pelosi to Abandon Effort to Use Coronavirus Relief Bill to Achieve Unrelated Policy Goals
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dismissed attempts by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to spearhead talks about a fourth coronavirus relief bill, saying that she should "stand down" on the proposal."She needs to stand down on the notion that we're going to go along with taking advantage of the crisis to do things that are unrelated to the crisis," McConnell said, calling the speaker's suggestions about fourth relief bill "premature."The Senate majority leader's remarks come a week after Congress passed a massive $2 trillion stimulus package to offset the economic destruction caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to spread across the country, causing businesses to shutter and lay off workers.The historic bill, the third coronavirus-related spending bill passed by Congress, provides $367 billion in loans to help small businesses keep making payroll, $100 billion for hospitals, and $150 billion for state and local governments.The plan also provides for Americans who make up to $75,000 to receive a one-time payment of $1,200.A $500 billion fund earmarked for corporations that have been economically damaged by the pandemic will be overseen by an inspector general and a congressional panel, in accordance with Democrats' demands.

America is battling a pandemic. Why is Trump talking about war with Iran?
Because an economy-wrecking pandemic isn't enough to deal with, the Trump administration is making aggressive noises at Iran."Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq," President Trump tweeted on Wednesday. "If this happens, Iran will pay a very heavy price, indeed!"The White House didn't provide any additional information about Trump's tweet or his claim of a "sneak attack" being planned. But it should go without saying that going to war with Iran right now would be a terrible thing.January's near-miss of open war with Iran — triggered when the United States assassinated General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's elite Quds Force — seems like a million years ago at this point. But even as the COVID-19 pandemic has escalated, White House officials have reportedly been pushing behind the scenes to escalate military action against Iran, despite warnings from military commanders that doing so could destabilize the Middle East and require the commitment of thousands of additional U.S. troops to the region.The pandemic is ravaging both countries. The United States has the most confirmed cases of coronavirus in the world — and is facing shortages of critical equipment and medicines — while the death rate in Iran is so steep that the country has dug mass graves that can be seen from space. Meanwhile, the United States has refused to ease up on sanctions in Iran, making that country's efforts to fight the disease that much

Why undocumented immigrants still fear the 2020 census
The United States might not be able to get information about more than 10 million people in the 2020 census. That's the number of undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Another 16.7 million individuals live in a household with an undocumented member and so might also not be counted in this year's census.The primary reason that undocumented immigrants might forego participation in the 2020 census? Fear. Fear of being found by immigration enforcement authorities. Fear of being detained to face a deportation hearing. And, ultimately, fear of being deported. If data is missing from the 2020 census, that will harm national and community planning efforts. Fear of deportationThe fear of being deported to one's home country extends well beyond wanting to remain in the United States to simply have a better life.A large proportion of recently arrived undocumented immigrants are from the northern triangle regions of Central America that include El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Though approximately 1.2 million Mexican immigrants in the U.S. returned to their home nation between 2010 and 2018, an estimated 265,000 Central Americans are fleeing annually to the United States, due to extreme violence and high murder rates. There are 4.1 million U.S. citizen children who have an undocumented parent. Deported parents will often protect their children by leaving them behind in the U.S. This potential, and likely permanent, separation feeds the fear endured by undocumented immigrant parents.Increased immigratio

5 ways that the coronavirus will change college admissions this fall
Editor's note: The new coronavirus is spreading across the United States just as many high school seniors were applying to colleges or awaiting acceptance letters. Here, Robert Massa, who teaches about higher education at the University of Southern California and is a former admissions dean from Johns Hopkins University and Dickinson College, offers insights into five ways the COVID-19 pandemic could affect a student's quest to attend the school of their choice. 1\. More timeDue to the uncertainties surrounding the health and financial implications of the pandemic, many colleges will not have filled their classes by the traditional May 1 deadline. Colleges that are concerned about not meeting their numerical enrollment goals will likely be flexible in allowing students to apply, even at this late date.To give students more time to visit and consider other factors, a number of colleges have pushed back their deposit deadline to June 1. For the most part, these are schools that historically have not filled their class by May 1. The more selective institutions are keeping the May 1 candidates reply date.If you have a deposit deadline from one school that is May 1 and another that is June 1, and you need more time to decide, appeal to the May 1 school to give you more time. Depending on how close that college is to filling its class, it may be flexible. 2\. A better shotIf a student has applied to one of the most selective, strongest universities - which represent less than 4% of the four-

What the coronavirus does to your body that makes it so deadly
COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Coronaviruses belong to a group of viruses that infect animals, from peacocks to whales. They're named for the bulb-tipped spikes that project from the virus's surface and give the appearance of a corona surrounding it.A coronavirus infection usually plays out one of two ways: as an infection in the lungs that includes some cases of what people would call the common cold, or as an infection in the gut that causes diarrhea. COVID-19 starts out in the lungs like the common cold coronaviruses, but then causes havoc with the immune system that can lead to long-term lung damage or death.SARS-CoV-2 is genetically very similar to other human respiratory coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV. However, the subtle genetic differences translate to significant differences in how readily a coronavirus infects people and how it makes them sick.SARS-CoV-2 has all the same genetic equipment as the original SARS-CoV, which caused a global outbreak in 2003, but with around 6,000 mutations sprinkled around in the usual places where coronaviruses change. Think whole milk versus skim milk. Compared to other human coronaviruses like MERS-CoV, which emerged in the Middle East in 2012, the new virus has customized versions of the same general equipment for invading cells and copying itself. However, SARS-CoV-2 has a totally different set of genes called accessories, which give this new virus a little advantage in specific situations. For example, MERS has a

‘We Didn't Know That Until the Last 24 Hours': Georgia Gov. Says He Just Found Out People without Symptoms Can Spread Coronavirus
While announcing a statewide shelter-in-place order on Wednesday, Georgia governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, said that he had just been informed that asymptomatic individuals could spread the coronavirus.The illness "is now transmitting before people see signs….Those individuals could have been infecting people before they ever felt [symptoms]," Kemp said at a press conference. "We didn't know that until the last 24 hours."It has been widely known for months that the coronavirus can spread through asymptomatic transmission. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated its guidelines for outbreak mitigation regarding asymptomatic transmission, leading Georgia health officials to change their projections for an outbreak in the state."It's a combination of recognizing there's a large number of people out there who are infected and who are infected, who are asymptomatic, who never would have been recognized under our old models, but also seeing the community transmission that we're seeing," said Dr. Kathleen Toomey, head of Georgia's Department of Public Health.Governor Kemp had initially resisted signing a shelter-in-place order due to the effect it would have on the state's economy. However, in recent days the governors of Florida, Texas, and South Carolina all introduced limitations on residents' mobility to combat coronavirus spread. Georgia has 4,748 con

How coronavirus has halted Central American migration to the US
Border closures and strict lockdowns have led to a steep decline in the number of migrants coming from Central AmericaWhen Angelica turned 30, she realized there was no future for her in Honduras.Although she had a college degree, she was still living paycheck to paycheck and was stuck in a neighborhood of the capital Tegucigalpa ruled by violent gangs.So, after years contemplating migration to the US where she has relatives, she finally made arrangements to depart."I didn't want to stay in a neighborhood where there are massacres or where the people lock themselves in their homes at six at night because the gangs impose a curfew," she said. "I realized I was more surviving than living."But by the time she was due to start her journey north, Honduras had closed its borders and declared a state of emergency. She could no longer leave her city - much less take a bus to northern Guatemala, to meet a coyote who would guide her through Mexico."I had thought that only a hurricane could stop me," she said. "But I hadn't thought of a pandemic."Border closures and strict lockdowns prompted by the Covid-19 crisis have disrupted the migrant trail through Central America and Mexico, forcing some would-be migrants to postpone their journeys - and stopping many others in their tracks.The result has been a deterrent more effective than any wall Donald Trump could build.Activists across the region have reported a steep decline in the number of migrants coming from Central America since the restrictions were imple

Trump Administration Has Turned Immigration Court Into ‘Public Health Hazard'
In a country ground to a standstill by the coronavirus pandemic, there is one place normalcy reigns: immigration courts.Overburdened judges oversee packed proceedings; attorneys shuttle clients and paperwork from room to room, often with interpreters in tow; aspiring legal citizens, or at least residents, follow closely, sitting through hearings famously described as death-penalty cases held in a traffic court.The courts, along with visa applications, detention hearings and other immigration related bureaucracy, are seemingly the lone part of the federal government still expected to function as if a global pandemic hasn't upended nearly every facet of American life. But those tasked with keeping the machine running say that they have received little guidance about how to keep the system running in the era of social isolation, and even less protection despite fears that immigration proceedings put some of the most vulnerable people in the country in the impossible position of choosing between their health or their home.The Trump administration has refused to allow immigration courts and visa hearings to comply with the same social isolation standards followed by nearly every other civil aspect of government, and has not allowed for previously scheduled hearings to be postponed. The administration has also issued little in the way of guidance for judges, immigration attorneys or immigrants, whose hearings—which often take years to schedule—directly conflict with stay-at-

Trump Administration to Couple: Ditch Adopted Daughter or Risk Exile
Last month when the World Health Organization dubbed the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, State Department officials gave Robin Gallite and her husband Alli, both 41, a choice: Return to the U.S. from Lagos, Nigeria, quickly before the country's airports closed and the health-care system deteriorated, or stay with their 16-month-old daughter, Nike, and risk getting stuck in the country.After applying for her adoption in 2018, Robin and Alli took home Adenike-Rae—"Nike" for short—in August from Cross River, a Nigerian state bordering Cameroon. The couple planned to stay with Alli's family in Lagos for several months while they waited for Nike's adoption to be finalized by local officials and until they received a U.S. visa for their daughter. They had wanted to spend time with Alli's family before returning home to the U.S. so Robin could introduce Nike to her own mother. The couple had heard from other parents that obtaining a visa for adopted Nigerian children took months, but they were optimistic about being able to fly back to the U.S. with their daughter in the spring of 2020. That confidence quickly faded. In February, President Donald Trump placed Nigeria on his travel ban list along with other countries with predominantly large Muslim populations. Weeks later, the coronavirus epidemic ballooned, causing the closure of borders around the world and forcing Americans like Alli and Robin to scramble to find a way out on evacuation flights. The dual events left the couple with a harrowin

Top EU court says eastern states broke law by refusing to host refugees
(Bloomberg) -- Turkey's central bank on Tuesday added to its emergency program to help contain the economic fallout from the coronavirus outbreak, as the country's number of confirmed cases surged 25% and the death toll climbed to 214.The bank introduced new measures to ease lenders' access to credit and support liquidity in the government bond market, before the latest data showed Turkey's caseload of Covid-19 rose to 13,531 from 10,827 from a day ago.Policy makers said they could make the bulk of planned purchases of government-issued bonds in a "front-loaded manner" and the program's "limits may be revised depending on market conditions." The latest step, unveiled two weeks after the central bank's first round of emergency measures, amount to "Turkish QE," or quantitative easing, said Timothy Ash, a strategist at Bluebay Asset Management in London."They were always going to do this, given their unorthodox bent," he said.The central bank has already stepped up its government bond purchases at a dramatic clip, propping up a market reeling from unabated capital flight and the prospect of increased borrowing needs. Over the past five bond-buyback auctions, it snapped up 1.56 billion liras ($240 million) of local-currency debt from the secondary market, the fastest pace in a decade and more than double the average this year.Currently, the central bank's government bond holdings can reach 5% of its balance sheet, according to a policy statement in December.Foreign investors pulled a net $742 million dollars
