Today’s news:

  • WHO officially deemed the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.
  • The NBA has canceled the rest of its season.
  • March Madness will continue but without fans.
  • Ditto for lots of TV shows performed before live audiences.
  • President Trump has banned travel from Europe to the US for foreign nationals.
  • Except for the UK.
  • Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have both tested positive for coronavirus.

This feels like the first day the country started taking coronavirus seriously.
