From how to think about the stock market to what to do if you lose your job, here’s what you need to know about coronavirus and the economy.

Your boss may be looking over your virtual shoulder right now. | Zac Freeland/Vox. Software that monitors remote employees is seeing a sales boom. It’s a scenario that perhaps millions of employees across the US have experienced: Because of , your office closes up shop and your boss sends you home with a company laptop and the hope that you can get the same amount of work done remotely that you did when you were in the office. But some bosses don’t have to hope. They’ve installed tracking software on those computers to supervise their employees at home as well as — if not better than — they do in the office. Meanwhile, you may have no idea that your employer is virtually looking over your shoulder. Employee monitoring software comes in many

The homebody economy has been on the rise for years. Now, massive numbers of people are at home. | Getty Images. The homebody economy has consumers right where it wanted them. But what happens next? Over the past few years, brands have wanted nothing more than for us to stay at home and buy stuff. The “,” as Kaitlyn Tiffany named it in 2018, encompasses everything from mattress companies to CBD seltzers. What these companies all have in common is a promise to burnt-out workers that they can avoid the anxieties of daily life by filling their homes with soft clothes, soft lighting, soft bedding, and the right plants. Now more than two-thirds of Americans are under government orders to stay at home. Homebody brands finally have consumers — espe.

Demonstrators from several environmental groups attend a youth-led climate strike near City Hall in New York City on December 6, 2019. | Scott Heins/Getty Images. The environment is the biggest driver of doubts about Trump among his wavering supporters. Most of the people who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 tell pollsters they’re firmly backing his reelection this fall. But elections are won by margins. And the relatively small number of Trump voters — about 10 percent, according to the Cooperative Congressional Election Survey — who say they’re at least considering casting a vote for the Democratic nominee are a critical slice of the population to understand. And , provided to Vox by Tufts University political scientists Brian Schaffner and

Assume that everyone at the hospital has Covid-19 until proven otherwise. “Team 700 to B4.”Before took over our hospital, I may have heard this page — which summons a medical team because a patient’s heart has stopped — once or twice a week. In the past couple of days, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard it. One recent page stands out: It was the afternoon of March 23, for a male in his early 30s with no medical problems. We had maxed out on his ventilator settings yet his lungs couldn’t deliver the oxygen his body needed, so his heart had naturally stopped. Over the past week, the hospital in Elmhurst, Q.

Covid-19, the disease caused by the , can look very similar to the flu. They have similar symptoms — , and the possibility of leading to pneumonia — and even spread the same way. So wanting to compare the two is natural and, frankly, understandable. But Covid-19 is very different from the flu. It’s more dangerous in almost every way. Not only is it twice as contagious, but the time it takes you to realize you are contagious is much longer. With the flu, the average time it takes you to feel sick from the moment you become sick (called the incubation period) is . With Covid-19, most people don’t realize they’re sick — and possibly contagious — for five days; it can take up to . You can also show no symptoms and still be contagious. And when

Analysts for California’s insurance marketplace recently insurers nationwide could end up spending as much as $251 billion to cover care for coronavirus patients. Arguably the most important variable for 2021 insurance premiums is whether the Covid-19 pandemic extends into next year or is br.

President Trump during a briefing about the novel coronavirus pandemic at the White House on March 30. | Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post via Getty Images. Trump had a chance to avert the unfolding coronavirus disaster. He blew it. President Donald Trump revealed a grim projection in the on Tuesday: Even with the social distancing the US is doing now, 100,000 to 200,000 Americans as a result of the ongoing outbreak. “When you see 100,000 people, that’s a minimum number,” Trump said. It’s a horrifying figure. That’s more people than ever died in a single year from HIV/AIDS, drug overdoses, gun violence, or car crashes in the US. It’s more than American casualties during the entire Vietnam War. But it’s also a horrifying number, in part, bec.

Community was a very different show by the time it ended — but still a terrific one. | Sony Pictures Television. Across six seasons and two networks, the terrifically funny comedy took on nearly every genre and pop culture trope. Few TV shows have changed my life like has. That sounds like hyperbole, I realize, but it’s really not. The sitcom about a group of study buddies at a community college, which very quickly became a free-wheeling parody of nearly all pop culture, was one of my favorite shows of its era, and when I was a young critic, it helped me codify many of the ways I think about TV. I reviewed in my old job at the A.V. Club, and doing so caused my career to explode. It’s 100 percent true that I would not be sitting here, writing.

Nicole Byer is the queen of Nailed It! — and she’s back. | Courtesy of Netflix. The playful reality baking show celebrates the joy of sugar, friendship, and messing up. Take heart, friends. The kindest, goofiest, lowest-stakes, highest-return show on TV has returned — right when need it most. Nailed It! is back for a new season. The Netflix reality competition series sounds, to the uninitiated, like a show that would have been invented by Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock . It’s based in which someone shows off both a gorgeous tricky craft or project — say, a fancy cake — and an amateur’s botched attempt to remake it. “Nailed it!” proclaims the text superimposed on the image.

Unemployment claims in the United States soared to 3.3 million the week ending March 21. | Lev Radin/Pacific Press/LightRocket via Getty Images. The upcoming jobs report will be far too rosy.

I want to see your selfies, your pets, even your pushups. | Getty Images. Now is the time to post with abandon. A couple of weeks ago (or what could have been a couple of weeks ago but was really just a couple of days ago), everyone on Instagram Stories seemed to be posting drawings of carrots. The crudely rendered orange triangles all appeared in a chain, showing the carrots that came before, some of which were anthropomorphized with googly eyes and smiley faces and little green leaf hats. The point was that you were supposed to draw a carrot and then “challenge” a bunch of other people into also drawing a carrot by tagging them. It was called the “carrot challenge.”The “carrot challenge,” courtesy of my friend Desiree. Like most social me.
