    You can’t tell any trends from the numbers because there is still NOT ENOUGH TESTING!!!

    • It doesn’t matter. 100% of COVID-19 deaths are being accounted for. The more tests you give, the lower the mortality rate will become. They’re already starting to see that the mortality rate’s as low as .12%

  3. Those states that protested will probably see a second wave..

      @Mariana Kristensen They will do the reopening soon and why. DEMOCRATS DON”T PAY TAXES SILLY!

    • @Morgan Stevens lol stupid people see everything in color lenses . Stupid people think they’re smart to play politics. But Covid-19 doesn’t care . It kills you all the same. It could be good that you don’t believe in science. Nature has a way to trim the the gene pool. Lol

    • @Morgan Stevens in fact I don’t trust any American mthrfkrs. I look to German experts , Chinese experts , Japanese experts for information. We know the fatality rate is anywhere between 4% and 17% depending on virus strains and the local health care system. Even good one when overwhelmed like Italy, the fatality rate could be as high as 14%. There is no cure and may never be a vaccine . Many countries are working on it hard but there is no guarantees. There may or may not be immunity. Many recoverd patients were inflected a second time . The virus is mutating at the rate of once a month. So far, there are three major mutations. Strain A most prominent in USA and Australia. Strait B mutated from strain A , most prominent in Wuhan and Asia. And strain C mutated from strain B is most prominent in Europe and New York. USA has all three strains. China and Asia have mostly B with a very small cases of A. Europe has mostly C and A. The Ro of Covid-19 is 3.1 three times that of flu and a generation interval of 4 days. It will take only 19 generations or 80 days to inflect the entire Indian population of 1.35 billion people. At 17% fatality rate predicted for India , that is 100-200 million casualties. Learn the science. Be humble. This may save you life even if you are stupid. Good luck.

    • @Too-much-cider We definitely will see the “Truth” before November and Trump will be elected by a landslide. In fact, he may be the only candidate after the sealed indictments are opened!

As evidenced by their ratings, most intelligent Americans regard CNN as a cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where fake news liars, despicable race hustlers, protected perverts, convicted felon talking heads and other assorted butt-fuckers, thieves, pimps and whores are allowed to run free.

      @Lincoln Minx well it’s unfair because most those people actually pay and have health insurance while the rest who want to stay home dont pay for healthcare or work to contribute to taxes. Typical liberal. Lazy government dependent with little or no motivation in life.

      Right now in my state and in the area where i live (approx 6.5 million people), there are 535 people in the hospital for Covid. The numbers just don’t add up. The cumulative numbers will always be on the rise. Open up and that is exactly what our area is starting to do. All they do is focus on NY.

  7. Washington State situation is greatly improved. However, people travel that may bring the curve up and cause the second wave. Therefore, tacking system have to be in place prior to open the boarders.

    • Exactly. It would require major coordination. At least in the Pacific Northwest and along the North East the governors have the brains to organized. I live in Florida, a YOY state… it’s SCARY here.

      Yesterday { 04-18-2020 } there were 357 new cases and 21 deaths { Pierce County }

    • This requires the entire world to work together to fight it. When Europe closed and US opened, US gets inflected as well. The same will happen with some states close and other open. There will be second wave , third wave….

  11. Why is nobody reporting on LIAR TRUMP’s and Mnuchin quietly behind the scenes BAILING OUT Capital One Bank and a very large Chicago based Hedge Fund ( whose owner is a buddy of Mnuchin’s and lives in Florida and flies to Chicago in his Gulfstream private jet and has one of the world’s largest private art collections) and NOBODY knows about it and Mnuchin is able to do this without any checks and balances. There is NO ACCOUNTABILITY?? Where the hell is the outrage that LIAR TRUMP is yet again screwing the small business owner in favor of the ultra rich and corporations??????

  12. It is sad that we can only rely on regional groups of states to address this pandemic since we do not have a national leader capable of putting the needs of the country first!

      elmagnificodep, go back to changing bedpans, you know nothing about the politics of history. Pandemic response for exactly this kind of infection since the Bush administration. Obama created both a pandemic response unit and plan. During the H1N1 outbreak, he issued health emergency on April 22, 2009, after the second case was discovered. He reissued the warnings in June and August, and declared a national emergency in September. During the first month, one millions people were tested. His response to the Ebola outbreak was sending response units to Africa as well as here, short circulating a pandemic. Trump was advised by the CIA,NSA, and CDC about the potential for a pandemic in December. His first response was to bolster Wall Street with tax breaks and interest rate cuts before addressing the public health crisis. His method of addressing the crisis was to lie, minimize, and misinform the public. He had already dismantled the pandemic response unit of the CDC, and he ignored the pandemic response plan from the Obama administration. Rather than coordinating with the states, and preparing for a pandemic he mocked and minimized the threat. His travel ban on China still allowed thousands to enter the country without testing, and his European ban was a fiasco, with arrivals from Europe waiting on crowded airports for hours without testing or quarantine. He abdicated responsibility to the governors, rather than coordinating response and forcing them to bid against each other driving prices up for critical equipment and supplies, his release of government supplies were through wholesalers to sell the states profiteering on a tragedy. His incompetence and stupidity turned a crisis into a catastrophe, had assumed a leadership role the pandemic might have been controlled. He refused test kits offered by the WHO further delaying testing, and the first tests were defective. The first fifty days of this crisis saw only 10,000 people tested. Three months after he was warned we still have no real idea the degree of locations of the extent of the infection. The infection rate of the flu is 1%, COVID19 is 2.5%, the death rate for flu in 0.1% the official WHO figures was 3.4%, this is debatable but worldwide it seems accurate. The incubation period for the flu is 1-2 days, for COVID19, 2-14 days. There are vaccines for the flu, none for COVID19. Trump’s incompetence, stupidity, and delay has resulted in the numbers today, 700,000 confirmed cases, and 40,000 deaths. These aren’t even the final costs, we’re seeing flare ups in all parts of the country. From a single meat processing plant in South Dakota, the total went from 280 cases to over 500 in two days. The final insult is while hundreds of thousands were diagnosed, and tens of thousands of deaths, Trump bragged about his T.V.ratings and Facebook popularity. He used his position to reward and punish states, and his platform to disparage and insult reporters and governors, blaming everyone else for his incompetence. This time it cost people their lives unnecessarily, one of which was a friend I knew for sixty years, she was a kind and gentle soul in her sixties. So I have no tolerance for stupidity, because it was preventable.

    • @John DiGiacomo Unfortunately your wrong about Obama. Obama left FEMA, the military without much. After his administration funded the very same lab that this virus came out of, and was warned by Bill Gates that we would have another serious pandemic, Obama was more concerned with funding NATO and creating bathrooms, so that mentally confused people could pee pee. Ive done my research on youre mess of an ex President and I wasnt even in the country to be victimized and brainwashed by your propaganda media.

      Ms. Kenyon, Republicans always claim government is inefficient, Bill Maher once said “it is, when they’re running it” it happens to be true. How do they claim ” fiscal responsibility ” yet always cut taxes for multinational corporations and the wealthy, claiming the “trickle down” effect which never works, and leads to recession. They then rail against Democrats for raising taxes to cover the deficits they create.

  13. I have not heard that other countries had protests and here we are showing that we are idiots who do not value our lives and that of others is sad to see the reality of this country.

      …and the tradition continues

    • @Hugo Ortiz –The element left out is that our nation is under thrall to the Military Industrial Complex. Under the delusion of National Security, trillions are wasted on weapons, false wars, overseas bases, soldiers, and the manufactured propaganda used to support the aforementioned. This forfeiture of such a significant sum of the nation’s collected tax money leaves precious little for a sane health care system, investments in secondary education to nourish the next generation of inventors, and REAL domestic security seen in the happiness and health of citizens.

      This virus is exposing the dark truth: the money goes to destruction! And the time to heal and rebuild has come. Right now, while $1200 checks are being passed out to the awestruck crowd, the Barker-in-Chief (who studied Barnum) is allocating several trillion to the usual suspects: big banks, mega-corporations, and the 1% stake holders. They own it all. And they manufacture the memes that have these chumps convinced that freedom means stepping over dead bodies rotting in the streets. THAT is the world they are creating!

      Great idea

    • Wesley Blood Yes. And let’s the Liberal cesspools die

    • Yes so they get the rebound of the virus and climb up the death toll of the people 🦠. Just don’t come into a state that is still at lock down

    • There were studies done on the aftermath of the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic and generally cities and states that opened later grew more in the years following, as the ones who opened early had a bigger 2nd wave and their citizens moved away from incompetent state and local governments. Let the red states open if they want, it will not only hurt their numbers because they’re generally in worse physical shape than dems, but it will destroy many local economies and lower their population in locations that have to shutdown again. I’m not sure how killing off your main voters block in senior citizens is helpful to Trump, but people are being effected as loved ones are taken to the ICU or morgue…

    • That won’t affect the trumpards. They are a selfish bunch, and most likely won’t be working on the front lines and first responders. These people hides in their trailers and farms waving their confed flags and guns, scream how their country is taken away from them by Mexicans or some other made up fantasy… Chinese…

  15. Unless we have testing available at every street corner, all of these analysis does not makes sense. All the numbers / analysis you are showing is Incomplete, because only rich, famous and healthcare workers are the only ones being tested. Trumpsters cult is not interested in testing, but Democrats and Republicans are.

  16. Testing. Simply not enough testing to make any of this reporting accurate.

    • Analogy Accepted | April 19, 2020 at 10:22 PM | Reply

      Singapore has a 2nd wave, because they did not account for their own immigrants. In other words, the numbers they were crunching did not represent their TRUE situation on the ground.

      If US relies on current numbers and trends to re-open, there is a good likelihood of a 2nd wave here as well, since this is NOT reliable data.

      Usually, I multiply reported numbers by 10x to get a more real picture. However, this is not enough, as this virus has a 2.2 R0 (basic reproductive number, a measure of how quickly it can spread), which means that a single pocket in a region (and, sometimes, just a few people) can re-infect everyone rather quickly.

      It is a dangerous game Trump is playing, and a dangerous time to re-open.

He was even better than Trump, he was going to build a “Wall in Space”, to protect America from “Space Russian”.

      What he said was complete nonsense and completely unhelpful

    • That’s because none of these numbers are accurate because there aren’t enough tests and data to determine how many are/were infected.

  18. How can one claim the cases are going up or down when there is no ready available testing to the public?

    • @Grim Reefer True, but the people who get so ill that they’re brought in by ambulance might be the people that are being counted.

    • @Gmeister They are and the ones that died at home. However, with the lock down how many have been sick at home and recovered?

    • @Grim Reefer Good point. As I said before, I really don’t know the answers to your questions and am just attempting common sense guesses. If one got sick, recovered, and is no longer contagious, I don’t know that they would be counted since they are no longer at risk or present a risk. You’re right, you need testing to get an accurate number, but you don’t need testing to see you had 19(random number) covid patients hospitalized one week and 3 times that the following week to deduce there is a rise in cases.

    • @Gmeister Because they should be counted due the fact they have anti-bodies. They should be counted, but Trump is making sure they are not. That mans thinking is way off to me. I could never support someone like him. My morasl would not allow it!

    • Trump made those numbers up?

  19. I wish the US’s numbers actually meant something in the grand scheme of things, each number is a person with a family, yet some are dying without notice. It’s horrible and heartbreaking…
