    Republican always talked about the sanctity of life, they had an opportunity to abide by their principles, instead they sacrificed their principles to business interests. The Republican governors have made an unholy mess of the situation.

    • 😷Republican leaders now say everyone should wear a mask — even as Trump refuses and has mocked some who do😷

      Trump is a disgrace and a very bad joke as a leader. He can still do a great deal of harm if we allow it. It is long past the time that Congress should act as a check on the executive branch, especially when it is run by a charismatic madman. Remember Hitler? They have much in common.

      Nancy M Ross I learned about the Holocaust back In elementary school and I would think I can’t believe people let this man get away with so many evil actions I never thought I would first hand witness it

  5. It’s up to you (me) to do your (our) best. We can (gotta) fight with all we’ve got to defeat these two menaces – the virus and the Trump.

  6. COVID-19: “Perhaps I didn’t make myself clear the first time, so let me try again. I am immune to Trump’s lies and gaslighting. Ignorance and misinformation from Trump and Fox only makes me stronger. I can’t be defeated with phony patriotism, guns, flag waving, or denial. I can’t be defeated with magic, because I am real, and magic is not. I can only be defeated with science, facts, maturity, unselfishness, and common sense. I am nothing like the flu, but the flu is a fan of mine, and it wants to be like me when it grows up. Trying to ignore me won’t save you. I can’t be defeated with thoughts and prayers, so going to places of worship won’t save you. You may not be interested in me, but I am obsessed with you. Currently there is no vaccine for me, and that’s the problem. I recognize no one’s authority. Selfish ignorant people like Trump and his cult are the wind beneath my wings, they give me life. I may have lost some strength in other countries, but thanks to Trump, America is making me great again.” 💪😆

    • @john smith I am guessing they would be fine with an eventual 1% death rate, unless it hit them or one of the extremely few people they actually care about. They might be okay with a 5% loss. Hard to tell with these trolls.

      The only thing dumber than Trump is a Trump supporter!

    • The US has 2.65 million cases, and 128,000 deaths. 2,650,000 ÷ 128,000 =
      very close to 1/20 dead. That’s about 5%. Same thing if you look at the world, or most other countries. Not very difficult if you do the arithmetic yourself. If you get 20000 cases, 1000 will die, although methods and equipment are improving to save lives. If, as Fauci says it could, the rates reach 100,000 a day, we may be looking at 5,000 a day dying. Does that amount to a daily 9/11? Do the simple math yourself instead of listening to fools.

    • @Yarp Yepiddy 99% survival rate means 43 million people dead in the world if the virus burns out after 60% infection….

    • @Pat Doyle 2 + 2 = 5

      they claim their rights are being taken away but do not consider their own lack of actions as a contributor to the current situations, that they take away others rights to live healthy…

    Pence is the one who says wear masks based on city and state regulations. The CDC is saying wearing them all the time in public. Dr. Gottlieb is blaming the wrong department–Trump has made it political and dumped responsibility on the states. Pence just parrots the president’s wishes.

    What matters is not the total amount of tests you’ve done, not even the amount of tests per capita. What matters is the amount of testing you’re doing in relation to the scale of your outbreak. If you do loads of testing in comparison to the size of your outbreak, you can identify not only the heavily sick people but also the asymptomatics. From there you can track and trace to keep the virus from getting out of hand. If you’re only testing the most sick people, you have no control of the asymptomatics who are going out and spreading the virus without realising it.

    Number of tests done per confirmed case:

    Vietnam – 775
    Australia – 316
    New Zealand -236
    Taiwan – 172
    South Korea – 100
    The UK – 30.8
    Germany – 27.6

    The US – 12.5

    That is why the US is failing to get this under control. Trump tries to gaslight people into thinking the US is ‘number 1 for testing’. Well it might be in terms of total tests done, but that’s not what matters.

    • Everyone should know what you just said, very few in the US do. Thanks.

    • Testing half a million people in one day and identifying 50,000 cases is almost senseless if they aren’t followed up, contacts traced, and all identified tested and or quarantined.
      But more so – 450,000 people with negative results just went right back into the population pool to be infected this afternoon, tomorrow, or the next day.
      Testing .5m daily is not .001524 of the population it is 10x less than that – as in, statistically meaningless when it comes to arresting the spread.
      A *minimum* of 7,000,000 people need to be tested per day including those who have been in contact with a positive result.
      It’s not so hard. Pool the samples – test one batch of 14 people in one test, winnow it out from there. Drill down to the positives.
      We’re almost at forest fire stage here and will be soon if nothing changes

    • @Lars Jones Also, even in the places that were “locked down” we needed to be intensively testing the “essential workers” like those in the meat-packing plants and such daily, and then actually doing something immediately when anyone tested positive. We had more testing of people of means unlikely to be infected than the pools of working poor who were steeped in virus-laden and crowded environments. The people who were infected early on were mostly poor and minority workers who literally couldn’t afford to take one day off (or get any health care), now we are seeing lots of “recreational” cases where young people got it going out partying — maybe the half of the country that didn’t care will start taking it more seriously now?

      You are right in principle but contact tracing 40,000 people everyday just isn’t possible; especially when most people have been in contact with dozens of people over a few days, most of them they don’t even know The tracing quarantining works when there are a few cases with identifiable contacts and when most people have been isolating themselves, as happened in e.g. New Zealand America is now out of control and as Dr Fauci said yesterday; it is going to get really bad and the New York experience will be repeated in dozens of areas and tens of thousands will now die.

    How about more testing, contact tracing and fever clinics for quarantines? Those are some of the things other countries did in successfully confronting the virus, but we don’t even talk about them? My theory is rich people don’t want to pay for other people to get well, and government officials don’t want to anger rich people.
