    It's hard to understand what you mean.

    "produce" should be "produced"

    "Even if the dangers weren't great" is not a complete sentence.

    "of conflicting with the facts" is a dangling participial phrase.

    Just trying to help. :)

    After three years of things that Trump said, the markets are not going to react to one more thing that Trump said. Trump saying things is already built in to the equation.

    The market is falling based on supply chain disruptions, nothing more or less.

    At the moment we have no Idea what the death rate will be. Like most diseases it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

    English not your first language? Let me break it down for you. Investors are jumpy. Investors believe people they think are experts at the CDC. (They didn't know one of those experts is related to the guy who wanted to wear a surveillance device to try to get rid of the President.)

    I'm not the one who brought up death rates. It's quite funny that the person who liked your post was the one who did

    You did however mention them in your post. Bear in mind also that China has a whole class if people in the area if effect that likely make up a high percentage of the death toll. Highly malnourished prison factory workers.

    We all type fast. If it's "hard" (as you say), that's good enough. We're all used to it. But it's acceptable to ask for clarification when it's completely unintelligible.

    Synonym for "hard" = difficult

    From rushing and not proofreading, I make a lot of typos and grammatical errors like a lot of posters here. Perhaps it's a matter of reading comprehension. I understood what mitchscove meant.

    So you are saying that investors have known for three years that he's a pathological liar.

    That may be true, but they require a President who is not a pathological liar in times of crisis. So businesses can make the appropriate decisions. The fact that they know that this one is a liar doesn't remove that need.

    AsI explained before, that is a mistake made by people who have never run a business.

    Testing seems to be our issue.

    So far the US has tested ONLY 500 people.

    Conversely South Korea has tested 65,000

    And it appears that the test we ARE using isn't reliable

    Pence better get his butt in gear

    Hey. Keep your skirt on. I just wanted to know what you were saying. I thought it might be something worth commenting on. But I see now it was just one of those nutty conspiracy theories.

    Wow. It's awful, isn't it? All those Americans falling over dead in the streets for lack of tests and hospital beds.

    CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 32 million flu illnesses, 310,000 hospitalizations and 18,000 deaths from flu; Pneumonia and influenza mortality has been low, but 125 influenza-associated deaths in children have been reported so far this season. This number is higher for the same time period than in every season since reporting began in 2004-05, except for the 2009 pandemic.
    https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/index.htm

    Why hasn't the western world banned travel to the US?

    The politicized reaction form the left, and the sensationalism by the news media, is just another in a long string of their efforts to capitalize on the emotions of the ignorant.

    Yeah, we consulted daily for two months with Chinese officials who were seeing very mild symptoms in 80% of cases and 2% mortality. Then Trump shut down travel from China down - that deplorable RACIST!

    And now, just look at the devastating tragedy this "pandemic" is causing in our country. Impeach Orange Man! Impeach! Impeach! Impeach!

    And one case of Trumpism. That one's terrible. Look at the devastation this infectious disease has produced in places like the UK and Brazil.

    Uhmmm you do know that the CDC is part of the Trump administration, and not of "the left", right?

    Other than that, I have no idea what "politicized reaction" you are talking about. And the fact that you don't mention it clearly indicates that you don't know what you're talking about either.

    The CDC is part of the bureaucracy. Most government workers are lefties since Conservatives have a distaste for big government and tend to leave. To wit. Look what happened to VA. I went to UVA, worked in VA, traveled around the beltway from 1974 - 1985. VA was not the radical liberal state it became after Bush & Obama. The thought of post-birth abortions would never have crossed the mind of Virginians. The beltway is now home of 6 of the 10 wealthiest counties in the country ,,, BTW, the CIA is HQ'd in one of them.

    The flu has already killed 10,000 across US as world frets over coronavirus
    Published Mon, Feb 3 2020 11:20 AM ESTUpdated Tue, Feb 4 20208:20 PM EST

    • The flu remains a higher threat to U.S. public health than the new coronavirus.
    • This flu season alone has sickened at least 19 million across the U.S. and led to 10,000 deaths and 180,000 hospitalizations.
    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/03/the...cross-us-as-world-frets-over-coronavirus.html

    89 Americans have contracted the disease, 2 have died. Even considering the likelihood of more illness and deaths ----
    Compare the reaction to a real threat versus what the media and other lefties call the #TrumpVirus --- weaponizing a disease to attack Trump.
