      @Crystal Giddens — Tell it to the Italians ,and many other countries, that “Coronavirus Could Be No Worse than Flu ‘….and that “Those who have died have been elderly or were already suffering from another illness”….

    Strange that those of us who are not wealthy enough, privileged enough, insured enough, or sick enough to get tested are the problem. It is time for us to build lasting solutions from the ground up.

      Buffet Gates, etc will have ventilators, protective clothing up to their keisters ..if it takes this crisis to show folks that a public health option & a proper minimum wage , can only benefit the whole of society, then so be it…money is no good if there is nothing to spend it on..
      .serious tax hikes for the very wealthy would pass congress if this awful thing persists so lets see them lobby their way of of that , with dead health front liners, and whilst the homeless hunker down in their cardboard cities
      stay safe & well all of Scotland is with you Will

      jnr  uumm Italy has a public health option. How’s that working? Also if we had a public health option guess who wouldn’t be allowed to help with these tests to increase result time? Private labs.

    • dugmeat mcdonald jnr | March 22, 2020 at 10:33 AM | Reply

      @Natasha Norman no umm the italian gov. like the USA did not take this seriously enough, not the health systems.
      .’ miracles ‘ ‘ wash away, ‘ ‘ soon be zero, ‘ everyone whom needs a test can get one ‘ , leave them on the ship, it spoils my numbers need i go on

      the reason italy is the current epicentre, and that is because ,of their testing regime ,every private lab in europe has been commandeered not asked

      .i have checked , my son is a professor of biology at Royal infirmary in Edinburgh, and my daughter is a surgeon there,..massive covid19 triage screening program , with tests available ..not a massive problem in Scotland yet but we are as prepared. as we can thanks to the late limp response from ald bawldy .and his fascist regime .
      you lot in the States cant test folks that may have the symptoms, Gov cuemo NY scrambling to find vital supplies. dont take you dog to the vet , they are handing in their equipment , construction guys are doing the same. and your on about private labs get a life

      that bald headed buffoon and his brats need a new HAT
      JAHO [ just another hoax ]

      @dugmeat mcdonald jnr oh ok. Well good show. The very best thing we can do is keep showing dissent and division. It makes things so much better, don’t you agree. I never have been and never will be a Trump fan but I do have sense enough to know that people are working very hard to handle this and they should not be disparaged simply because of people’s massive hatred of Trump. In the meantime, in the real world, we are stepping up and helping those who need it. Going for food, checking on the elderly, providing food for the poor. Because that is what Americans do, that is who we are. You and your son just keep right on hating Trump. It is just soooooo helpful right now. You have taught him well. Have a great day.

  3. I can remember back in the day when there were only 15 cases and it kept going down and would soon be zero. Good times.

      It could happen, the coronavirus has the potential to bankrupt the u.s. health insurance industry

    • Susette Horspool I pay 5 bucks for a doctor visit. I have a Medicare advantage plan through AARP that costs $20 a month. The director of the cdc has committed to allowing corona virus tearing for free for anyone who wants it, you do not need a doctor to prescribe it.

    • I second that!!

      Medicare For All is not working in Italy, the COVID-19 has not yet reached the very poor Southern Italians, and they are bankrupt already. Remember that Florence in Italy is home to the very rich!

  5. Madison Heights | March 19, 2020 at 9:38 AM | Reply

    Yes, I thought of that. Given how industries used their bailouts and tax breaks for stock buybacks, I completely expect them to fire employees. Our reps need to draw strict limits.

  6. Hotels are empty and we KNOW tRump will bail them out. Use the empty hotels.

    • David Gallegoes | March 19, 2020 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      Very good idea to use empty hotels,

    • I am sure trump has donated every one of his hotels to house the sick & homeless.

    • James Ricker | March 19, 2020 at 5:41 PM | Reply

      You do realize that Donald Trump owns hotels and they were the first to get bailed out

      u.r right S H………. bail out no 2 is on the way let these ceos and boards should spend their own money 1st or go bust .. ships , investment banks, luxury hotels, Country clubs , are not essential businesses, its profit or loss regardless of any circumstances that is FREE market ….if some sectors are so important to the nation , then the FEDERAL Gov. [ that’s YOU Steve ] should buy them, instead of BAILING them out. then when things get back to the norm, YOU the taxpayer will make the big profits .. that S H is CAPITALISM for you

    • No sh!t. Really. What do you think is happening!!

  7. We small business dont need more debt with loan. We need rent bills defer
    We need $2000 a month per adult $500 for each kids until we can reopen our small business

    • @T Electronix why should tx dollars pay your bills.

    • Robert Enyart | March 19, 2020 at 12:52 PM | Reply

      Small business owners should not be forced to repay loans. Banks and companies that were “too big to fail” never repaid a single penny of those loans. All things being fair, the small business people will actually use the money to keep their employees going and help make up for the loss of income.

    The economy is stopping so the bills have to stop including rent/mortgage, utilities etc and we need UBI Immediately.

    • Socialize the rental market to some extent too! If small businesses rented their spaces from the government, the government could immediately suspend rental requirements in times like these!

    • During the Great Depression of 1929, my family lost the farm; the banks were closed for withdrawals and loans but somehow able to effect foreclosures. Depressions are used by the rich to rob the poor and middle class of their hard earned property and money.
      The wealthy own our political class, only by threatening them with loss of office do we stand a chance of this bailout being about Main Street this time.

    • @David Romney The French govt has just done pretty much this.

    • The economy IS NOT stopping. People will continue to buy/sell/rent/lease.

      Joe Paleface Joe, I don’t know to what you refer. I’m not political. Was only made aware of Russian collusion when the whistleblower came forward and our living rooms became the the screen. As to the other stuff about reports, I give in. Wouldn’t know. All news of Meuller reports came in where trump squashed it. Then we all paid attention. Cronies went to jail. Trump pardoned.

      @Reynaldo LopezUhhhh… I’m afraid that Trump IS one of our corrupted politicians… one of THE MOST corrupted in fact…

  11. All of the US should be asking banks to waive mortgage payments for 90 days not just New York. We’re not allowed to go to work our works are shut down.
    The average middle class household your going to need a $2000 check. After your mortgage payment, and basic utilities that’s with that comes to that’s not counting food.

  12. “We need to do this. We need to do that”. Just Stop saying what you need to do, and actually start doing it!

      Incompetent or sinister? Trump and the republicans want all minorities, elderly, democrats and poor people dead. This will help him in seeking a dictatorship of the US. Why else would he want to throw millions of the most vulnerable people off their health insurance.

    The unemployment money also needs to cover part-time employees as well.

    • Nope work full time.

    • Susette Horspool | March 19, 2020 at 4:05 PM | Reply

      Yes. Like school bus drivers, especially if they’re recruited to help transport nurses/doctors/patients.

    • it is not unemployment.
      that already exists.
      it is a direct investment in people who will immediately begin spending the money that will stimulate every sector of the economy.

      every american should get an economic stimulus check.
