300 positive cases of COVID-19 and 4 deaths led to shutdown of LA garment factory

COVID-19 infections continue to surge in the U.S. as experts urge individuals to continue practicing social distancing and wear facial coverings or masks. Businesses across the country are closing down as they become hotspots for the novel coronavirus. Factories, specifically, struggle to deal with stopping the spread of the virus as workers often work closely together and are limited in space making it difficult to social distance. Reports have been made nationwide in which factory employees have expressed the inability to follow social distancing measures in their work facility. Following an investigation into more than 300 positive COVID-19 cases including four deaths, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has closed down a garment factory in Los Angeles, California. According to CNN, the Los Angeles factory was previously shut down on June 27 after violating county health regulations and failing to cooperate with the health department’s investigation of a reported coronavirus outbreak, health officials said.

Scripted crime TV shows give viewers a dangerously false perception of how cops operate

As the uprisings against police violence force a national reckoning with how Americans conceive of police, calls to closely examine the role of pop culture in valorizing cops have grown more pressing. While the first cultural tentpoles to fall have been reality-based shows like Cops and Live PD (which were recently canceled), that scrutiny is increasingly being extended to scripted crime dramas, like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (SVU)—shows that week after week drill home the narrative that police are heroes who almost always treat survivors with respect, solve the case, and provide a pathway for the victims’ healing.

A disaster: Florida, Texas report skyrocketing COVID-19 cases as pandemic spirals out of control

Today, Florida set a new pandemic record for a single-day increase in COVID-19 cases: 15,300 new cases were identified in the state, far above 12,274 single-day increase in New York during what was then the worst COVID-19 outbreak in the United States. Death counts are also beginning to rise, both Florida and elsewhere. In Houston, Texas, refrigerated trailers are now appearing outside local hospitals as their morgues fill, even as the state continues to intentionally hide COVID-19 deaths. The second wave of the pandemic is now here, and it is entirely self-inflicted. It is based mostly in the Republican-led states that shunned prior social distancing advice and boasted about reopening early. In the southernmost parts of the United States, pandemic infections are spiraling out of control.
