'Most Americans now know someone who has been infected with COVID-19' (Tue, 11 Aug 2020)
“The U.S. has reached a landmark of sorts in its so far not very successful battle with the virus that causes Covid-19 — most Americans now know someone who has been infected,” writes Justin Fox at Bloomberg, about coronavirus social data from Navigator Research, shown above. From Navigator Research: Key takeaways: • Trump’s approval ratings on handling the pandemic remain deeply underwater. • For the first time since the pandemic began, a majority of Americans know someone who has been infected with coronavirus. • More than three in four Americans support states requiring people to wear masks. “We’ve now reached a point where most Americans have a personal link to the disease, which makes such denial a lot harder,” writes Justin Fox at Bloomberg: Given what we know about the spread of the disease from other sources, it sounds about right. Although it is sad news, it may also mark something of a positive turning point. More than anything else, the key to keeping Covid-19 under control seems to be taking it seriously, and knowing someone with the disease can do a lot to focus a person on the risks it poses. That it had to come to this is of course tragic. A key enabler of the spread of the coronavirus, especially in affluent countries with the resources to stop it, has been an inability to imagine that what happened somewhere else might happen closer to home. Italians saw what transpired in China, and failed to act on the early signs that they might be next. Read the rest

Secret Service agent shoots man near White House, here's what we know (Tue, 11 Aug 2020)
A U.S. Secret Service officer shot a man dead near the White House today. Authorities interrupted a briefing by President Trump that was happening at the time and escorted him from the press room. The moment Trump was escorted out of the briefing room by Secret Service - agent seems to say, “We have shots fired outside.” pic.twitter.com/cJkkxwYLXm — Peter Stevenson (@PeterStevenson) August 10, 2020 As TPM's Josh Marshall tweeted, “Hours later and we appear to know almost nothing about what happened. Who the person is, whether they were armed, what actually happened.” Statement from U.S. Secret Service on officer involved shooting: pic.twitter.com/vMP9ypuNh5 — U.S. Secret Service (@SecretService) August 11, 2020 On Twitter, the Secret Service wrote that the White House complex wasn't breached and none of those under the service’s protection were ever in danger. A 51-year-old man approached an officer posted near 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW around 5:50 p.m. and said he had a weapon, reports the Washington Post: He said the man ran aggressively toward the officer and withdrew an object from his clothing. Sullivan said the man then crouched in a “shooter’s stance” as if about to fire. The officer shot him, striking him in the torso, Sullivan said. The man was not identified. The Secret Service said he and the officer were taken to a hospital. Sullivan did not take questions from reporters late Monday and did not say whether a weapon had been recovered. Trump, who spoke about the shooting after he returned to the White House briefing room, said he understood that the person was armed. Read the rest

Biden to announce vice president running mate this week: reports (Tue, 11 Aug 2020)
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is preparing to announce his choice for vice president as soon as this week, several news organizations are reporting. Biden, who served as vice president under Barack Obama, promised to select a female running mate and is under increasing pressure from Democratic leaders and activists for her to be Black, reports Reuters: Biden and his potential vice president will formally accept the party’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention, scheduled for Aug. 17-20, and he is expected to announce his pick before it begins. The New York Times reported earlier on Monday that Biden’s campaign plans to announce a decision as soon as Tuesday, but more likely on Wednesday, citing people briefed on the selection process. The newspaper said the committee that screened the candidates had “effectively disbanded” after completing its work. It noted that Biden has missed previous deadlines to announce his pick, and that the timeline could “slip again.” A Biden campaign spokesman declined to comment. More at Reuters:Biden expected to announce U.S. presidential running mate this week: source Given what I've learned in the past couple hours from sources, I'm inclined to believe the VP leak could come tomorrow and would not be surprised if word leaked as soon as tomorrow AM to mid-day A leak being different from a formal announcement which NYT says to expect midweek — Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) August 11, 2020 Read the rest
