      @Mad Man You repeat your program very well.

      @Dab King OK, child, tell me everything you know about the creation of money. I have a nanosecond.

      @J C Denton You can think whatever they tell you to think but that does not change the reality that the economic shutdown will cause infinitely more harm than the Virus would have caused unchecked. You don’t diddly squat about how this planet is controlled by money.

      @Greg Kramer How about the multi-millions that will starve in the coming years due to the effects of the worldwide economic shutdown? Are you stupid?

    • Models have to be based on accurate testing. We don’t even have one based on a genomic sequence.

      Epicenter areas of Taiwan, Japan and S. Korea used chloroquine as an immediate and essential protocol. They are far from crippled as we are now.

    Any bipedal creature with a cerebral cortex could have figured that one out, MSNBC…

  5. You mean to say minor changes up front will have drastically different results when exponential growth is involved? Wild.

    Some headline suggestions for NBC:
    1) Study finds studying year long is the only guaranteed way to have good grades.
    2) Study finds that eating is the only way to be not-hungry.
    3) Study finds that sleeping is the only way to be not-sleepy.
    n) Study find that .

  9. This guy says many people haven’t been infected meanwhile they already told us you could be infected with no symptoms. I’m done with the news

  10. Isnt early detection a good thing for every known disease in human history

      Trumpanzee praised itself 2 month ago “I did a great job, otherwise we would have thousands of deaths in this country” Well genius, you Trumpanze is Satan, 95K Americans died. The worst number of deaths in the world! Many seniors died. Vote this Satan out.

    • @Richard Lee Your TDS is showing …….

      They are grasping for straws for “news” views

    • If the tests weren’t producing so many false positives on past flu shots and even motor oil (Tanzanian investigation) then…

  13. Right, because the “numbers” have been so correct. Please.

    • Even if the numbers were correct, you still would not accept them. There is always motivation to think they should be higher or lower, and plenty of scapegoats to pin it on.

  14. I applaud MSNBC for keeping to the title of the video rather than labeling it about virus when the video is actually purely political.

    In other news, a new study out of Harvard university finds that water is in fact wet. We’ll keep you updated on further developments as they unfold.

    None of the predictions we’ve heard thus far have been even close to accurate. Now we’re supposed to look at some retrospective analysis and believe its findings without question?

    • Lilac Lizard | May 22, 2020 at 5:22 PM | Reply

      just look up “first movers group” – 9 countries that did this & are now over the virus as a result. You might want to use the info on the virus from one of those countries instead of US sources from now on too if you want accurate, reliable info! Australia was in the same starting position as the US, first case 6th Jan, 7000 cases total, 101 deaths, 91% of cases recovered. that’s what the US would have looked like with early testing & contact tracing

      @Lilac Lizard is Australia worried about a second wave?

      No countries are “over” this virus. There’s no exact treatment/medicine for it, there’s no vaccine, and there’s no herd immunity.

      ​@Megan Mackowiak we have our second wave in progress right now, hence why our current stats look so bad. Dam abattoir/meat packing plant in Victoria has caused over 100 cases! We’ve had days with over 20 cases in a single day nationwide, all cause of that Victorian cluster, other than that, we’re in single digits & have been for weeks!

      We’ve eradicated in NT & SA & probably in WA as well, Tassy’s looking good, Qld just got a new case with unknown origins, so we’re probably going to need to do another 100,000 tests or so in that area to figure out where it came from & eliminate all cases, NSW’s is just a case of plodding along & testing every person with a sniffle for the next couple of months in order to get the last of them, Victoria, who knows! That’s why we have state borders closed, so it can’t spread from one place to another once it’s eradicated. Their 150,000 testing blitz at malls is hopefully going to get most of their cases, but too early to tell with them. We’ve only got 6 people on ventilators nationwide though & we have around 5,000 human ventilators last count, with more being made everyday & an additional 3000 animal ventilators we can use on humans if needbe, so pretty safe to say we’re over the worst of it & aren’t going to see it go beyond our capacity to manage. We’re all educated on what’s needed & we’ve got the app to track down rouge cases now too, so yeh, we’re well & truly onto recovery now. You can look at the data yourself if you want to links at the bottom of that page to a range of other covid stories too, with accurate, factual coverage. We’ve fought this thing with facts & mass education. Our leaders still won’t say we’re going to eradicate it, they’re still saying it will be a “happy accident” if it happens, but we’re certainly on track for it

      @Megan Mackowiak also, if you do look at that data, be aware we’re still bringing residents home & into enforced hotel quarantine. We’re still getting a lot of cases in those hotels, but they’re completely separated from the community, so don’t risk the spread, just add to apparent case numbers. In some cases there’s been whole groups diagnosed together too, due to flying back together & not having social distancing on the hail mary charter flights they’ve managed to organise to get home
