    To contain the virus, the Chinese have quarantined 160 million people.

    Absolutely forbidden to leave your home or be arrested by the police.

    They've sealed off entire cities.

    These measures were taken when there were 25 000 cases...

    Not anymore, they are currently reopening businesses, etc. Even in the epicenter.

    Italy, on the other hand still maintains open borders. Their numbers reflect that bad decision.

    You either don't understand or you don't want to understand.

    China reopened the affected cities because ALL cases were hospitalized and there were no new cases from the local population.
    The curve is flattened. The virus is under control.

    In 14 days, the sick who are too weak will have died and the others will be cured. All the country will have to do is control the people coming in from outside.

    Here, the rate of progression is 30% per day. It doubles every three days.

    The situation is out of control.

    Do you understand what I just wrote?

    The vast majority of cases come from people who are sick and go to hospital.

    Before they are hospitalized or quarantined, these people have infected others.

    To deal with the virus, Trump should have declared a general quarantine three weeks ago.

    This is the case in Canada and within two weeks the chances of controlling the virus are very high.

    As in South Korea.

    So you live in a parallel world and you're quoting people who don't know anything about it.

    Good luck with the rest of this.

    Oh, that tired old deflection. My cousin's husband and kids have it, and they likely gave it to my boomer aunt. I'm not super giddy about the prospect of losing family members. Tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, are going to die while conservatives blubber about Obama and are out pretending that those who don't agree with them are cheering for disease and death. WTF is wrong with you?

    Sorry, but I don't believe you. Same way folks don't believe me when I say my gay stepbrother died of AIDS. (Although he did... I understand how the timeliness of this revelation looks suspicious.)

    Fear mongering is alive and well on the left. Meanwhile,

    Tomorrow, the sick count will reach 100,000.

    With four times less population, the US has now surpassed the number of cases in China.

    The mortality rate is currently 1.4%.

    In nine days, there'll be a million sick people.

    People are afraid of everything these days.

    Only a 3% chance of dying is nothing.

    Dying from COVID-19 is pretty standard.

    You drown quietly in your lung fluid, gasping for air for 5-6 days at 101 fahrenheit.

    Anyone can work under these conditions and help Trump to be re-elected in November.

    And if Trump used our military and police to physically arrest people they see out and about you’d be calling him Hitler. So spare us your “concern”.

    Watching an animal show with my son right now and Mosquitoes kill 750k carrying various diseases, annually. Every year. 750k dead.

    It’s about perspective.

    It's that precise reason why the President has been reluctant from the outset. He knows he's in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. In large part because for 3 years and counting, assisting the current President of the United States is a cardinal sin.

    It means you resort to memes when you can't give a reasonable answer.

    The spread of the infection is a fact whether it existed a week ago or not. The argument suggested by your meme is inane. Those ARE Still confirmed infections.

    Trump has done nothing to lessen the spread. That has all been done at the State level. Reason number two why your meme is inane.

    What trump has done is attack governors who are dealing with the greatest health crisis in modern history, unless they seemed appreciative enough. Their job isn't to kiss his sorry ass. And his job is to help all Americans; not to pick and choose between those so feed his pathological ego, and those who don't.

    Oh yes, and he blurts out false information about this every day. His own staff constantly has to correct him.

    113,000 people have recovered. Odds of recovering are 97%. You should turn off the news.

    Absolutely I do.

    It means you listen to those with no credential in anything related to the problem at hand, and who feel free to tell the Americans to ignore medical advice.

    You use him to try to make our response PARTISAN rather than medical.


    Why would you do that?

    Many of these people are being saved by hospitals that have the necessary supplies and equipment.

    The concern is that as our healthcare faccilities run out of healthy staff, equipment and supplies, the percent they can save will fall.

    The CDC and other experts point out that not only CAN that happen, but without serious effort it WILL happen.

    Your nonsense IS killing Americans if anyone listens.

    I look at the facts and make up my own mind. Why do you need someone to tell you what the statistics say?

    Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is calling on his state's top health official to stop abortions in the state due to the coronavirus crisis, just days after Planned Parenthood sued several Texas state officials for a similar policy.

    Great news.

    No you don't.

    You listen to some guy who has absolutely ZERO expertise in this area.

    AND, you ask others to believe his crap, too.

    And, what I say concerning statistics is coming from the CDC, Dr. Fauci, our governors who are on the front line, and other experts.
