Covid-19 fun facts:

  • Persists on inanimate surfaces 4 times as long as influenza
  • Incubation period at least twice as long as influenza
  • Patients asymptomatic during incubation period

  • Mortality rate 40 times that of influenza
  • Vaccine development efforts for similar viruses such as SARS and MERS have failed for 17 years

Kellye Nakahara Wallett, actress from 'M*A*S*H,' dies at 72


Nurse Kellye was great.  Season by season we got to see her and she could be a voice of sanity in a room of self avowed lunatics and nuts in denial. And a voice for diversity long before her time "Doctor, could you put that in ethnic measurements I can understand?"


and damn it, she was indeed cute as a button!
