On Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading expert in infection diseases in the U.S., testified before Congress amid growing alarm surrounding the 80% spike in confirmed COVID-19 infections in the past two weeks. About halfway through the session, Sen. Elizabeth Warren asked Fauci for a direct assessment of where the country could be headed if the surge in cases is not abated. He did not mince words.
We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day, Fauci said. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around. And so I am very concerned.
The implications of Faucis alarming forecast are clear to anyone who lived through the previous three months: hospitals moving perilously close to over-capacity, states retrenching into strict quarantines, and an already tattered economy plunging deeper into the abyss. That potential future is especially dire for the entertainment industry, which already has record levels of unemployment as the pandemic all but halted production throughout film and television, effectively freezing the content pipeline and cutting off millions of livelihoods.

Now, before the moment is ruined by reading any more doom and gloom, time to go mow
Oh dang it. I was so hoping follywood would return. And, hard to believe, but more tests=more results. Who could have guessed?
Doesn’t Hollywood get an exemption like protests and riots?
Actors should move to China. CBS This morning reported that China only had 4 new cases yesterday, ALL of China. Now they know how to handle it, must be the masks.
Really good movies are rare these days. A defunding of the beautiful people is healthy.
To be fair China has had a growing hold over the industry. Storylines have even been altered to appease Hollywoods Chinese investors!
And just wait for Disneys postponed release of Mulan. Wonderful story! Too bad the cast and crew saw it fit to use their fame to denigrate Hong Kong protesters!
Hollywood loved Hitler in the 30s, too.
I've heard of stretching the truth but this is the utter destruction of the truth.
This dem-commie scamdemic does have its bright side
OH NOOOOOOOOOOOEZ !!!!!!
Yes Hollywood you listen to every word this Fake Dr has to say ,LOL
The protests and riots HAVE become the business of Hollywood....
The riots and protests just confirm their opinion of America as a whole, and will continue to fuel their crusade to demolish whatever culture existed in the past.
Mission is on track to the ultimate desired outcome.
I have good news Lord Soros Riots have begun
Excellent. Everything is going as planned.
Step right up .... everybody will test positive. And thats a promise .....
As most know I do watch a fair bit of TV and I will definitely miss Chicago PD, Chicago Fire and Blue Bloods. Others too but they top my list.
On the other hand I’ve been prepping. Tonight I will watch the last episode of season three of Alias. One of the BEST shows ever! And have also started Justified. On my list, if the new TV season is put on hold, are 24, The Sopranos, The Americans, Lost and a couple more.
OH NOES what will the Hollyweird Pedophiles do for work..guess this means more free time to touch lil boys
