ThreeBays saysFL has a higher concentration than CA. 5 times more new cases today in FL than CA. Try again.10-20% of FL is gonna die from this. Gonna be a blood bath that saves social security. Gotta find the positives in the moments of distress.

Sweden does not find the need for a national shutdown.
theoakman saysThe people that left NYC for their summer homes have caused significant spread.Florida went from just a few hundred cases to thousands over night, all in part because of the disastrous way those Commie Liberals handled the containment. Or lack there of.

What’s changed over the last week is that people are starting to see that his leadership is actually getting us through this very weird crisis, and that he’s doing a decent job of it.
Trump isn't becoming a more competent speaker. People are just beginning to notice he always was a competent speaker, but the fake news blitz that he was crazy, stupid, or demented was so intense, they didn't see it.
I haven't, nor will I. My health is my responsibility, no one else's. If you're fat, ingest garbage, and take medication, you had this coming. And I have zero obligation to restrict my freedom to bail your fat, sick, lazy ass out.
The graphs show that flattening of the curve decreases the total # of infected persons by order or more of magnitude (area below curve), which can not be true.
By hyping the Wuhan virus far beyond the actual danger (literally "orders of magnitude", as those Stanford docs put it in the WSJ yesterday) the media both helped Trump and undermined their own credibility yet further.
There is absolutely no accountability in the fake news about this condition. Disinformation piled on disinformation.
Based on Stanford doctors who analyzed the data.And based on Fauci's own paper in the NEJM.
It will all become pretty clear in the next few weeks.
USA numbers of confirmed cases are going up - this is a good sign as it means we are testing a lot better now. Likewise, the % of deaths has already gone back to normal flu levels. But, for this Special Election Year Flu, we had to crater the economy because Orange Man Bad. Unfortunately, a recession or depression will kill a lot more people globally. The Globe depends on strong USA economy. Without the USA floating everyone's boat, a certain number of humans on the margin will die.
Prediction:Total US deaths from Wuhan virus will be lower than deaths from the 2018 flu epidemic in the US.
So you agree that this is no more deadly than the seasonal flu? Yes by rate, but no by sheer numbers?
I do find it funny that you phrase it as “if we keep the economy fucked” like you’d somehow handle things differently. It’s so obvious you badly want to pin this on President Trump that you try to play both sides of the fence. Pretty ridiculous really.
No. SC is the anomaly. There are many counties in CA with 0-100 infections. Those will all go to zero quickly. You won't get 1% of CA due to distancing. Maybe 0.2% at best. Of course over a long enough time line that may happen but that wouldn't be a problem for the hospitals to handle as long as they don't get all the cases at once. Herd immunity will eventually take over. Warm weather will help too. This is a serious illness but it's no apocalypse. Watch the CA numbers which have stalled and declined since hitting 1k new daily infections.
We have about 2.8M deaths per yr in the USA. I think ~1.5M covid-19 deaths is quoted as a upper bound by many, so it's likely the realistic, actual # of deaths will be a lot less.
Daily Wire, sometimes Breitbart and Fox, are the only reliable ones. Everything else is the same thing as the left such as mother jones, daily kos, now this, etc. it’s all bullshit, left and right. Can’t imagine why anyone would cite stuff like that as “news”.
the deathrate is looking to be at .1%.
marcus says:USA USA !You have to look at cases per 1MM capita. The US is still far far from Italy.
:USA USA !
Days after beginning a large scale double blinded trial, the so called gold standard, France has now reached the conclusion chloroquine is recommended to treat corona.
If the French and other European countries are using it now I doubt the studies aren't truthful.
Fakemed, a group of scientists against fake news in health, lambasted the 68-year-old professor.After Raoult released his latest findings on the internet over the weekend, Professor Francois Balloux of University College, London, tried to dampen talk that the drug could be a silver bullet."No, (this is) not 'huge' I'm afraid," he said on Twitter."This is an observational study (i.e. not controlled) following 80 patients with fairly mild symptoms. The majority of patients recover form #COVID19 infection, with or without #Hchloroquine and #Azithromycin treatment."Statistician Tim Morris of the university's clinical trials unit was even more scathing."If hydroxychloroquine turns out to be useful," he tweeted, "it's a shame that this group will be praised as heroes and prophets instead of held to account for the misinformation and self-promotion they've been churning out at a critical time."Dr Philippe Gautret, who was part of the team behind Raoult's latest findings, admitted that they only used the combination of drugs on "patients who had not been showing signs of being seriously ill after admission" to the hospital.
This thread is VERY encouraging from one of the doctors treating hundreds of paitents with it with ZERO deaths so far..https://twitter.com/KMCRadio/status/1243439036917841920
