      @James Volk this is just the start of the epidemic, no one knows how many are actually sick. Because there aren’t enough kits to test everyone.

    • Sandra Albuquerque I apologise to you and Daniel. I misinterpreted the tone of what was going on in these posts by Daniel. See my subsequent post re Larry Fish bags.

      Sunny Johnson question as you now understand how it disables your emergency hospitals what is the proper action to take if one had an elderly person who was showing, just keep in room isolate, monitor? when I looked at the utube video I just was floored, sad as it was plain to see, yet what were we all thinking, I know I should not ask the latter question as now is not the time, I am breaking my own words, forgive me

      @Am Gine no worries! stay safe and stay healthy. This is our main worry now.

    Europe has more cases than the US because people have actually been tested in Europe.

    • @Jim Stabler His point was that health care is free at the point of use. In the US a trip to ER might end up costing you US$1000+ In a countries like Italy, Singapore or the UK it will cost nothing.

    • @Lord of the Fly’ His point was that health care is free at the point of use. In the US a trip to ER might end up costing you US$1000+ In a countries like Italy, Singapore or the UK it will cost nothing.
      Do you want people who may have a deadly virus avoiding treatment because they are frightened more of the bill.

    • snoop alert but it is good to know if u r infected to self isolate

    • Eva G due to Obama taunting him. Obama wasn’t mature.

    • @Sue Smith ‘Obama wasn’t mature.’ In comparison to Donald Trump?

    Think about this as a possibility, the testing kits are deliberately being withheld, slowed down, because Trump Will not like the numbers if the country is flooded with test kits, in turn giving a more accurate picture
    We all know his obsession when it comes to numbers.

    • @Brian Boulter That’s great and all, but one of the Democratic candidates literally said he wouldn’t have closed the borders. That doesn’t scream “common Sense” to me.

    • Brian Boulter | March 13, 2020 at 12:48 PM | Reply

      Doing well, meaning having a little luck on your side, rather than any sound reasoning, or judgement involved.

    • @Brian Boulter It has nothing to do with “luck”. We clamped down on the borders, restricted flights from heavily contaminated countries = Fewer and fewer infected people coming in. And I think the low mortality rate in the US so far just has to do with people finally doing something proactive to either:
      A. Keep themselves from getting it, or
      B. If they ARE feeling sick, they’re actually resting and taking care of themselves, instead of trying to just push through it like they do every other flu season.

      I’m including a link for you. You should follow along. It gets updated several times a day, and the reported numbers are very accurate.

    • 1% of the Flue kills you because of medication and the Flue shot , Covid-19 rates at 3% and no cure, THIS HOW TRUMP REALY FEELS WE ARE DOOMED

    • @Tommy Tommy, this disease has a high mortality rate, and is not a flu. I suspect you’re a troll, and you are endangering lives by spreading Trumpist propoganda. You need to go away now.

  4. Uh, the reason we have fewer confirmed cases is because we’ve tested fewer than 5,000 people.

    • Trump shifts blame to other countries for his failings. His working theory is that if you don’t test for it, you don’t have it. He didnt want cruise ships unloading their quarantined pax because they would affect his numbers. Here’s the architect of fake news telling us his tricks. Even the experts at the CDC were amazed at how smart he was about the science of contagions (or at least that’s what he told us). He told us he had a feeling this flu was no big deal and it would all be behind us when the daffodils showed. I think that was 5- 6 weeks ago. He was boarding a helicopter to one of his rallies.
      He had a window then to get ahead of this thing but chose to pretend everything was under control. He’s put my life (I’m an active 73 who is unfortunately immune-suppressed), my wife’s (still a front-line healthcare professional exposing herself to Coronavirus while she cares for the sick as I write this), and my 39 year-old daughter (an epidemiologist who like me is immune-suppressed and also a vulnerable asthmatic) at unacceptable risk.

    • @SolSere Jeremy Don’t waste your breath trying to talk methodology and fact to an audience that hasn’t listened to reason for 4 years now.

    • @Stephanie Drake Extrapolate 1 in 10 on a population of 350 million and then accept that the infection rate is going to go up and up and up. In 2 weeks, the situation in Italy went from 1000 cases to more cases than you could count (in a blink of the eye, it was out of control). That’s what’s going to happen here by April 1. It won’t be a joke. That’s disturbing. Trump is the April fool.

    • @QualityTradez Do the math. 5% of 1,000,000 = 50,000. Many of those wil be intubated and some will die. Lucky you. That’s on a base of 1 million. In all likelihood the way this contagion is spreading, the effect will be 50 times more devasting. When the Spanish Flu (1917-1920) killed 50,000,000 over 3 years (it came in at least 3 waves), most of those deaths came in the 2nd wave as the virus had mutated and was unstoppable. As I understand it, we don’t have much of any defense for Covid19. Maintaining social distance is a strategy, but it’s a bit of a crap shoot. Better hope Covid19 doesn’t become more lethal over time.

      Tested fewer than 2,000

  5. When are they going to actually test people to give us a real idea of how many cases we have?

    • carey and now Chump just got his money hungry hands on $50 billion more for him to shovel somehow into his friends pockets with a kickback to his pockets…..the ONLY thing that Chump and his corrupt “cabinet” are interested in is pillaging the U.S. treasury!

    • BTS LIVE Bingo! and now he just called national emergency because he found out that he could release $50 BILLION of taxpayer dollars…..which he will use to enrich his buddies by hiring them….and they, in turn, will give a nice kickback into his bottomless pit pockets

    • Luciano Corona agree

    • Sparky McSpark what UPRISING in Wuhan? wth are you talking about?

    • @Jason Springer Do you actually believe that BS?

  6. “the most aggressive, comprehensive action against a virus in modern history” wtf

  7. Everyone wakes up when the sports get turned off. Politicians rely heavily on the American public being distracted by sports. I wonder if this changes how people pay attention to the democratic primary?

    Hey, no worries. Once the warm weather come, it will magically disappear. After all, there are only 5 cases, and soon there will be none. Thus spake the wise oracle.

      Current death projections are roughly the entire population of Colorado. Given a 50% national infection, with 3.5% death and adequate medical care for all. 6 million lives may be lost without intervention.

      @QualityTradez Italy is rated #2 globally while the U.S. is rated 37th in medical industry performance.

    • QualityTradez | March 13, 2020 at 11:58 AM | Reply

      @johnny walker Yes but those numbers are pulled and based off of Italy’s system. Which is a system rigged to make them look better even if they are worse. Perfect example is of infant mortality rate. US counts an infant as alive the second it is born from the mothers womb. If it dies immediately after it is considered a child death. Italy requires a child be alive for no less than 24 hours and no more than 48 hours to be considered an alive child. So they have a 48 hour period in which a child dies and would not get counted statistically toward their child death rate. My cousin worked for 5 years as a nurse in Italy and other countries after that. She refused to allow hospitals there to do anything for her is she needed it. It was so bad she would fly back to the US just to go to a doctor. Don’t believe numbers online. Get it from real people and real sources.
