He told us that this would keep him active and encourage others to explore their neighborhood. He had to stop his mission due to COVID-19, but Hailperin planned to walk five to eight miles at a time to all the city's neighborhoods alphabetically. After each walk, he updates his blog on his website (allofminneapolis.com) with photos, interesting observations, and historical context of places. His posts have colorful photos of exciting homes, local food , public arts, and parks to encourage others to go out and walk. Hailperin is a very organized person and keeps track of the routes on google maps he takes so that he does not repeat the same street if he doesn't want to.

Turn streets into slow streets for public health and check the spread of Corona
On March 16, Bay area counties issued an order named shelter-in-place that is an emergency measure to avoid the spread of Coronavirus. This order involves closure of non-essential businesses, and residents are asked to stay at their home and practice social distancing. These measures have succeeded in many regions. Our local elected officials deserve n appreciation for their quick decisions.
Now is the time for mayors to take decisive action of designating hundreds of miles of "slow streets."
Slow streets are ordinary streets that have been closed to through traffic with signs and traffic cones at each intersection. (Residents can still drive to and from their homes). On these slow streets, Bay area residents can walk, jog, or roll wheelchairs on the traffic lane. These lanes also provide enough space for the people to maintain social distancing. Due to COVID-19, the number of cars on the road had decreased significantly, reducing the number of accidents and pedestrian fatalities to almost zero in the Bay Area.
As the transport services had reduced, these slow streets can help essential workers to walk and bike to their jobs safely. Cities like San Jose, San Francisco and Los Angeles have already had great success with temporary street closures with programs like Viva CalleSJ, Sunday Streets, and CicLAvia, respectively. Now, these programs should be taken to a grand scale and not just on the weekend. These slow roads can also help people to keep themselves fit and healthy by walking and running and avoiding any chronic diseases due to obesity.

Los servicios de emergencia en Estados Unidos han atendido más de 100 casos de personas intoxicadas por lejía y productos higiénicos, luego que el presidente Donald Trump afirmara públicamente que esos productos podrían limpiar el organismo del coronavirus. El pasado jueves 23-A, Trump hizo un comentario en el que recomendaba inyectarse desinfectante y usar luz ultravioleta para acabar con el coronavirus, palabras que desconcertaron a toda la comunidad científica que rápidamente desmintió la información para evitar consecuencias. Pese a las alertas de médicos y expertos estadounidenses, algunos ciudadanos tomaron al pie de la letra las palabras del presidente y las aplicaron en sus propios cuerpos, pensando que se curaban cuando en realidad se estaban envenenado, reseñó Telesur en su sitio web. El Centro de Control de Envenenamientos reportó más de 100 casos, que no requirieron intervención hospitalaria, ya que las personas que acudieron a los centros de salud presentaban los primeros síntomas del envenenamiento como vómito y malestar general, que se trataron a tiempo.
