Nick Crawford's online dating story begins like many other single people's. Swiping, liking and messaging until you find somebody who wants to go on a date with you. Crawford's dating adventure may have led to the contraction of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, by both him and his date. “I really liked her smile and her eyes,” said Crawford, who is a web designer and developer.
The U.S. Navy on Wednesday declined to rule out punishing the captain of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, who wrote a scathing letter to Navy leadership asking for stronger measures to control a coronavirus outbreak onboard. In a four-page letter, the contents of which were confirmed by U.S. officials to Reuters on Tuesday, Captain Brett Crozier described a bleak situation aboard the nuclear-powered carrier as more sailors tested positive for the virus.

Fox News’ Sean Hannity and ReCode Co-Founder Kara Swisher Escalate Feud: She’s a ‘Far-Left Media Mob Maniac’
The battle between ReCode co-founder Kara Swisher and Fox News’ Sean Hannity continued Wednesday night, one day after Swisher published a New York Times op-ed blaming Hannity’s employer for her mother’s refusal to take the coronavirus seriously.“You got one far-left media mob maniac over at ‘The New York Times’ using the virus to attack her least favorite network, oh, and yours truly,” Hannity said during his primetime show. “Yes, she’s accusing Fox News of putting her mother and the elderly people at risk.”“In order to help the media mob out, we put it all together for them [in a timeline] so they can’t plead ignorance when I think about suing them,” said Hannity, who had already unleashed a series of tweets about Fisher earlier in the day. He referenced his Jan. 27 interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, a now-recognizable leader in the fight against the virus, “six days after the first confirmed case of the United States.”Also Read: ReCode Co-Founder Blames Fox News for Aging Mother's Lack of Coronavirus ConcernHe pointed out other instances of Fox News reporting seriously on the virus and took aim at the New York Times for “using coronavirus as a political weapon.”Swisher, too, engaged in battle via broadcast, although she opted for an afternoon livestream on Twitter while Hannity had the benefit of a primetime program that draws millions of viewers each night. She opened the stream with a joke: “What’s going on? Something happened? Something happened on Twitter?”“I seem to have tweaked Sean Hannity, which was not my goal,” she acknowledged with a laugh. “I said I wasn’t going to sue him. In a column I did about my mom having terrible information in the early days of coronavirus and it’s because her principle way of getting news is through Fox News and so I was irritated by that.”Swisher pointed out she wasn’t blaming “all of Fox News” and was, in fact, somewhat laudatory of primetime host Tucker Carlson, who she said “was very early to warning about the problem and treating it like science issues.”Thursday evening, Hannity took up tweeting about Swisher once again, declaring “the fake news media never ends.” The Twitter battle looks like it will continue for some time.See Swisher’s livestream below.I am here to talk live about my latest @nytopinion column which apparently tweaked someone: https://t.co/dxCYMwrvrx https://t.co/8PkN7OwOj6— Kara Swisher (@karaswisher) April 1, 2020Read original story Fox News’ Sean Hannity and ReCode Co-Founder Kara Swisher Escalate Feud: She’s a ‘Far-Left Media Mob Maniac’ At TheWrap

‘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 confirmed cases, with Florida at 7,773, Texas at 4,607, and South Carolina at 1,293, according to Johns Hopkins University's coronavirus tracker.With the extent of coronavirus spread across the U.S. becoming clearer, Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday said the outbreak in the U.S. was increasingly comparable to that of Italy, one of the worst outbreaks in the western hemisphere.
