Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

This didn’t age well at all.

Soon after the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally held in South Dakota took place, a study concluded it may have caused more than 250,000 new coronavirus cases.

Looking at the video you can really see how that isn’t a distant possibility.

Those numbers are non-consensual though and a recent report published by Jennifer Dowd, deputy director of the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science at the University of Oxford, says the 250,000 estimate is at best an “absolute worst-case scenario number,” and the actual number of infections may have been far lower.

Bolsonaro’s tribute to Covid victims

Never has the expression “stranger than fiction” made more sense than when the president of the Brazilian Tourism Board went live on Facebook, with Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro, to play Ave Maria on the accordion in honor of Covid19’s victims.

Bolsonaro has been a covidiot since the very beginning of the pandemic, so at this point it’s hard to be surprised by anything he does or says.

So, we thought!

This time, Bolsonaro had his Tourism Board President show up to play the accordion (very poorly) and then leave without saying one word. It was one of the weirdest things we’ve ever seen.

I mean, it would be weird enough if it was just some random guy doing this on YouTube but this is the president of a country?!

How low can this guy go, is the only question at this point.
