For Isabelle Harrison, the coronavirus wake-up call came when she rushed to her grocery store in Bologna, Italy, to find the shelves cleaned out of pasta.

Spaghetti. Fusilli. Even tiny bags of tiny macaroni. All gone.

“I immediately thought, ‘Uh oh, there’s no pasta in Italy?’”


Quote:
Harrison’s agent, Boris Lelchitski, said that he was concerned his clients who play overseas would be shortchanged on salaries or bonuses and that his “sneaking suspicion is that we won’t be getting paid” by teams in countries hit hard by the virus.

Sort of topical, the Westchester County Center is one of four sites in the NYC area being considered as a temporary hospital.
