    Friday Quickies: COVID-19 Edition

    Hey, all! I feel like I’ve spent the last week in some kind of Twilight Zone here in the US with regards to all of the coronavirus news. Luckily, I have some friends with biology expertise who can help me navigate the ins-and-outs in a field where I do not have expertise. So, for today’s Quickies, I’d like to share…
