    alot of nurses and staff still laid off..damn

    • and beds and and ventilators are empty and still in boxes.

    • Remember those tent hospitals they built that never got used?

    • @Arthur Reed And the Navy hospital ship sent to New York. That Cuomo decided it was better to send virus patients to nursing homes instead of using the ship. Of course after Cuomo pulled his mother out of a home.

  3. Gosh, and to think the “experts”, politicians and media told us if we shut our businesses, locked ourselves up in our homes for months, wore masks, lost our businesses, our jobs and our homes in the process it would stop the spread of the virus. How nice.

  4. Come January… “ The government you elect is the government you deserve “ Thomas Jefferson #VOTE! 🗳

      How does it feel lying to yourself and others in order to justify your decision to support joe biden who is a known crooked career politician and a racist?
      How can you look at yourself everyday in the mirror knowing it’s wrong?
      How does it feel losing all the time?
      Word of advice-
      The grass is much greener on this side.

      @BIgPimPing H to the izzo Ummmmmm right wing polls say Biden is in the lead 🤷🏻‍♂️

  5. Half of the country doesn’t want to adhere to the health advice of the CDC. Science is ignored. Doctors are part of some political conspiracy. Education is indoctrination. Can people like this even be reasoned with? Turn fact into fiction. Ignore the enormous impact the virus has caused and call it a hoax is somehow easier to “deal” with. For the first time ever I believe people like this are beyond repair.

  6. MASH tent? Just like when they made McCormick Place a hospital and never used a single bed?

  7. Ya, we know. Biden said there’d be 120 million dead before he finished his lecturing.

  8. “Deaths may triple by January…or so we hope” -CNN

    • @The Horde
      Donald doesn’t need help to look bad…

    • @The Horde You should stand back and hear what your saying…….”Trump looks bad because people are dying”. Well your right, he does and no one is to blame but himself.

    • what a joke! Why doesnt Fauci learn how to use a calculator. If u google his paltry academic resume ,you will see he has never taken a math class (it is online as well as every course he took) .
      Too bad! 3 masters in the sciences here and whenever I hear him called “Dr” Fauci, I laugh.

      This “model” seems questionable. We have been almost a year into it with 200,000 dead and now the dead will triple in one month?

      Seems mathematically questionable.

      Florida itself seems to disprove that? They lifted all restrictions and are doing as well as Il or MI and this comparison represents empirical data that seems to contradict the orthodoxy.

      The man who says selfishness at work is presumably not talking about people who want to stay open to be able to feed themselves and keep their home as that would hardly be selfishness.

      Long story short, it should not be so easy for someone like myself with 3 graduate degrees in the sciences to do better than Fauci and CNN in terms of looking at the data being collected and asking questions such as is it consistent with our current theories—as they do in Physics which is my forte. Asking such questions and disproving THEIR OWN theories is what scientists are NORMALLY trying to do. Einstein tried to disprove his own theories as an academic exercise until he died. Far cry from that is Fauci who has dozens of beliefs but subjects NONE of them to mathematical proof and confronts NONE of them with hostile data as an academic exercise to sharpen his thinking. In fact, he ignores data when it is hatefully thrown in his face –rather than taking glee in constructing a mathematical counterargument. I doubt he even knows what that means!

    • @Alpha Bruh 👈 A complete imbecile spreading really dumb lies about a renowned scientist. 😂

    • @Alpha Bruh That death count is nation wide and the virus doesn’t understand state lines. It all comes down to doing something to prevent deaths or doing nothing. The mighty USA with all their wonder and scientific knowledge managed to come in last place. Ya good job there, bravo. People in Florida are retired mostly and don’t hang out in bars and go out as much socializing, but I’m sure you took that into consideration when you insulted one of the smartest guys when it comes to diseases. LOL…didn’t take a math class, ya that’s why he makes 100’s of thousands of dollars a year in his job and your still at home sucking on your mommy’s tit.

    No More Fast Food, try exercises and don’t get fat

    • We are on the precipice of a cataclysmic cultural sea change. An ideological and spiritual revolution of sort, that will upend foundational traditions and unhinge the opposition.  Now’s not the time to fold and fail, cower or concede to these naysayers, rather a  time of resistance and consistency in message and resolve. We will neither bend,bow or break under the  exertions,coercion or threats  of this monstrous government. These are they whose powers have gone awry while drunk with the thirst of more domination.  The empowered have  derived their position from the citizens who appointed them, stewards of our trust and affairs. Since however they rather ravage and reverse that sacred trust and use that power to govern to subvert and subjugate us for nefarious gain, then let it be known and told to all,that no man or political entity whether in person or policy will succeed in securing power in perpetuity. We are and always will be men geanted by God, free access and  inalienable rights to excercise our humanity in liberty and free of the tyranny of those who might undermine that  right.
      Let’s lift each other up and free any who find themselves under the gravity and brevity of tyranny and injustice.  We will forge a path  either by peace or war, that we might  achieve a lasting resting place where all rivers of  men meet, in the legacy of the common  good,  the brotherhood of humanity
      Let there be no doubts that  all Suns set on Empires, great or small and the Moon has its cycles for every era of nations.   A new Day will dawn and until that time we must be diligent and unflinching in our opposition to any effort or action to  turn us from the highest pursuits, which are ours by right and edict of God himself.

    • If the solution doesn’t come in pill or vaccine form, we don’t want it

    • You said fat that’s hate speech 🙁 I’m just kidding they die from fat and add it to covid 😂

    • Just because people are considered “clinically obese,” like Trump is, doesn’t mean they were going to die within a few days or weeks, and DEFINITELY doesn’t mean they were asking for it or deserved it. It isn’t just about being “fat” it’s also a highly contagious and deadly pandemic – like trump said to bob woodward ON TAPE back in January/February.

      Maybe you should try exercising your brain sometimes. You know, if you don’t use it you lose it.

      @Bill Miller i understand you, Bill…. and we really need to stop making this about politics and all about protecting each other. That’s all i care about. My wife makes masks for the community in which we live- for free. Donations for fabric, not profit. It’s not about whose fault it is. It’s about keeping our elderly safe. Our children safe. Our at risk neighbors safe.

      @TLS Music Production at a 0.03% death rate from covid, it’s hard to believe the 200k number

    • Chuck Morrison | October 30, 2020 at 10:59 PM | Reply

      fpshooterfull don’t run away. I want to see your reply to Eric.

    • @Annoying Troll No one is buying it any more and yet you see the HIGHEST amount of COVID cases?

    • @Rickey Claiborne You’re not very good at math are you? You’re saying that up to 5% of the people that get Covid die. There are 331,000,000 million people in the US. If only 25% of those people get Covid and if only 2.5% of that number of people die then that means over 2,000,000 Americans will die of Covid because some people are too pathetic to wear a mask for the hour or 2 that they’re out in public. Man up and wear a mask to save someone instead of being selfish.

  11. Here we go with the political games again. The democrats have nothing to run on but covid.

    i live in Oregon and our hospitals are empty waiting for influx of covid patients…. well see if that happens

  13. Reminds me when the models said 2million, remember you remember….

    • Or “2 weeks to stop the curve”. Or the 3 month lockdown we already tried…

      The US will get there, just keep doing what you’re doing.

    • @Donovan Dey We a llowed the wolves to take our sheep,  our children and devour them and re educate them and indoctrinate them. we gave up so they gave in. We did a better job storming Normandy and defending a foriegn ally than our own discarded fellow citizen.  We could stop bullets but not drugs, rebuild Nagasaki but not our Inner cities Allies. Invest our treasury in an excercise of hate, but so little  will to our own properly educate.

      We thought the battle and the war for what we valued and cherished was always across an ocean. over there, somewhere whe it was always here,  over here under our own nose and feet but that was the fight we abandoned and withdrew ourselves for we did not care. not enough at least.  We are reaping domestically our own apathy and complacency,  lethargy and  indignity.  So Now is the time to regain,  regroup,  redo and reimagine again those highest ideals and goals  , that vision to recapture our future  for our posterity and then prosperity of a legacy worthy of us.

      However in actuality, when the law of diminishing return is in effect even the chance at any increment is increasingly unlikely.  only the integrity and the resolve of the individual will determine the outcome

    • Pepperidge farms remembers…

    • Oh I remember! But unlike you I don’t cherry pick – because what you’re quoting was that it was projected if we didn’t do ANYTHING to prevent or slow the spread of covid that we could lose 2 million people. How unsurprising that you only said the part that fits your confirmation bias. But yeah that totally doesn’t dismiss the 220k plus people who already died with your argument or anything because “more people could’ve died”

  14. Who cares when people are starving and going homeless? Life before death means to eliminate the virus & TRUMP.

    Look!! CNN predicting the future based off of…”We’re CNN”….you couldn’t ask for a funnier ….well…CNN,YOU ROCK!!!! Zombies next PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

  17. “The best we could do is be the worst in the world” – that pretty much sums it up

    • Europe is having spikes much worse than the ones here in the US. More importantly, the death rate has been lowering.

    • Not even close to summing it up unless your dumb enough to listen to only the communist media

    • So are you saying you would trade freedom for security? Rather live in a controlled environment without risk than to have risks without control? Are you saying you prefer to be told what to do than do what you want to do?
      If they tell you it is mandatory that you get a vaccine, will you just take it without question? Because you want to be told how to live your life?

    • @b. yeah because China and Russia are accurate and honest with their stats 🙄

  18. Whenever I feel a bit down, I can always trust CNN to tell me I’m gonna die

  19. When this proves egregiously false in January. CNN should be shut down. It’s totally unaccountable for all the lies it tells.

  20. Oh the same models that predicted 2.5 million deaths lolololol
