    Most definitely. Trump had first announced it's use last Thursday and it's already being used at many hospitals with positive results so far. I think we will be hearing more and more in the very near future

    It will not take til 2021 if folks would start doing what they are supposed to be doing and not socializing for a month. The rate needs to stop increasing - plateau - and then decrease before things will get back to anything resembling normal.

    The densely-packed cities are going to get hit the hardest, and we all know who likes to cluster up in hives.

    Spreading fear and dire predictions doesn't help. The virus will run it's course and disappear, like always. 97% of victims will recover and Donald Trump will be reelected causing 92% of leftists heads to explode.

    Or closing down the country.

    54 800 cases for today. 32% more than yesterday.

    For Now, US is the fastest growing place in the world for the virus.

    New York is starting to catch hell. We're going to see what a pandemic sweeping through the richest city on Earth looks like (I assume New York is the richest).

    We are not in a global depression.

    And if we let the left in charge then the economy is toast. Math seems to be tough for them. Saw it with the Bloomer could give everyone a million dollar fiasco and now Cuomo can not subtract.

    “Faced with New York’s need for 30,000 ventilators to keep virus patients alive when the spread of the virus peaks - which could happen in as soon as two weeks - the federal government has sent 400 from its stockpile.

    "You pick the 26,000 people who are going to die because you only sent 400 ventilators," an angry Cuomo demanded”

    Way past that, have been. Just test results flexing the number scaring people. Not any difference in a real number of cases already out there.

    Yet it is the "left" that has pulled the country out of three economic crises since 1929.

    Three crises left behind by Republicans, by the way.

    Hoover, Bush 41, Bush 43 and Trump.

    You forgot Carter's stagflation of the seventies. Those were miserable times for many of us, and there was no COVID-19 at that time.

    The day ended with 68,200 cases.

    That's a 30% increase since yesterday.

    At this rate, there will be 1 million people sick by April 5.

    Very worrying.

    COVID-19 is far more contagious than H1N1, and the number of deaths is going to blow past the less than 12k in your meme. H1N1 killed that many in 9 months. COVID-19 has killed almost 1000 in just under three weeks. And maybe do some math on your own meme: 11,690/57,000,000 = 0.02%. If only 97% of people who get COVID-19 do recover, and it infects even half as many as H1N1 did, that will be over 800k dead.

    Also, Obama was out telling the truth about the situation and acknowledging that we had to actually do something about that disease back when there were only 20 or so infections. It took many thousands of infections and almost a month for Trump to rise to that level. For real, trying to compare Trump to Obama in terms of how they handled their respective pandemics is going to turn out really badly for Trump in a matter of weeks.

    The other major difference is that Obama headed it off in Africa. No such luck in this case with China, because China is and will always be the furthest from cooperating with the INTL community.

    So you ignore B. Clinton's "everybody gets a home lone" insanity?

    <3500 dead in China out of a population of 1.4 BILLION and the crisis is considered winding down. Liberals sound downright giddy when predicting American deaths. It's actually quite bizarre. :fingerscrossed:
