New Delhi city alone has registered more than 10% of total cases, making it the third worst-affected part of the country after the western state of Maharashtra, home to financial capital Mumbai, and southern Tamil Nadu state. “If we open Delhi hospitals for patients from all over, where will Delhi residents go when they get infected with coronavirus?”

A Delhi government coronavirus mobile app showed the city of more than 20 million people had 8,049 COVID-19 beds, but more than half were already occupied. Of the 60 hospitals, 11 had no beds available, the app showed on Sunday.

Amid virus, US students look to colleges closer to homeAs students across the U.S. make fall college plans, some colleges are seeing surging interest from students looking to stay close to home amid the coronavirus pandemic. At Ohio State University, commitments from state residents are up 20% over last fall. AP should know that it is The Ohio State University. The irony is this is going to put even more financial strain on these large institutions... Their big cash cow is out-of-state tuition I would think small colleges would see a big increase and large schools see a drop off?

Amid virus, US students look to colleges closer to homeAs students make college plans for the fall, some U.S. universities are seeing surging interest from in-state residents who are looking to stay closer to home amid the coronavirus... My mother was clear about college tuition - go out of state, and you're on your own to pay for it. There's no justifiable reason for a student to pay the exorbitant out-of-state tuition to go elsewhere. All fifty states have perfectly fine in-state schools. Could really help reducing future student debt. Community Colleges can save students thousands over two years. Good. Get out of those liberal indoctrination roads to hell.

We Just Don’t Know How Tear Gas and the Coronavirus Will MixLike everything else about this virus, we are learning on the fly. More than the direct effect, tear will cause coughing and spraying of droplets, which will promote spreading of COVID. Use of tear gas against peaceful protestors must end. Its a chemical agent, it needs to be outlawed for crowd control, the exception ti the treaties was a mistake. It will kill the corona virus. So it's ok.
