13 million: Beginning on Monday, Japan will close every school in the country until at least April 8 to combat the spread of coronavirus. The measure affects about 13 million students, who will have to remain at home. Family and work schedules will be disrupted on a massive scale.


33: One third of Americans, 33%, say they have little confidence that votes will be counted fairly in the 2020 election, according to a new poll. The remaining two thirds were split just about evenly between those with "great" confidence and those who are "somewhat" confident. Are these numbers a glass one-third full or one-third empty?

42: Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's approval rating in Mexico City, the country's capital, has fallen to 42%, according to the daily Reforma. Lopez Obrador served as mayor of Mexico City from 2000-2005, and it's long been considered an AMLO stronghold.

3,270: A man in the US state of Florida thought he had coronavirus, so he went to a hospital to get tested. The results were negative, but he was still stuck with a $3,270 bill from his insurance company.
