    Less than 0.03% of the population have died, most were aged 65+ w/existing medical conditions. There is NO CURE. We should all be opening up while being safe, period.

    • @josef i was talking more to OP but i wish you health and safety.

    • If you’d closed down when you should have, you’d be looking at reopening now.

      If you had the same per capita deaths as Australia (who listened to the WHO) only 1200 Americans would have died.

    • @Noreb thanx, you too…

    • @south oh so you know for a fact what those numbers are despite the multiple people testified just this week that the US death toll is higher than currently known? Or are you just parroting an inaccurate point with inaccurate data because youve been pushing propaganda for the trump administration in comment sections along with the same bots and troll that are on EVERY MSM youtube video? Personally i find it funny how much traffic you all generate to help these networks

      @SouthSide Chicago I don’t believe the numbers. I believe a lot of deaths are not recorded. My 92 year old mother was in the hospital for 2 weeks with an unknown respiratory infection in late March. While she was there, my 60 year old brother died in his home of an unknown respiratory infection. Since neither had traveled to China, I couldn’t get either tested for Covid-19. I’m sure there are many with similar stories.

    Trump has a strategy he plans on closing his eyes and sticking his fingers in his ears and say na na na na na na na over and over , this way if he does not see the truth then it isn’t so .

    As of May 15, New Zealand’s (pop. 5M) death rate for COVID19 is 3.6% that of Virginia’s (pop. 8.5M).
    NZ has now effectively eliminated the virus.
    NZ listened to the science and had competent leadership.

      @Ray Morgan Be fair Ray, it’s USA in the biggest mess, not America.

    • Saynoto Socialists | May 15, 2020 at 9:33 PM | Reply

      Ray Morgan , changes nothing democrats said it you admitted they said it but are trying to absolve them by saying they didn’t know the intelligence on the virus , that’s not even remotely plausible , you are just parroting the lies democrats told their fake news slaves to report

    • Saynoto Socialists | May 15, 2020 at 9:38 PM | Reply

      Ray Morgan , the narrative is democrats encouraged people to go to movies restaurants and Chinatown after the dangers of the virus where known , I can only imagine the outrage from nitwits if Trump would’ve said “ I’m restricting travel from China because of this virus and it’s here now , but no problem if you go to movies restaurants and Chinatown “ 🤣

    • Saynoto Socialists – And you think the Democrats saying something wrong in January, and CNN reporting on the failures of the president are the difference between 80,000 Americans dying and the 1200 that would have died if you had the same per capita deaths as my country?

      If you honestly blame the party that isn’t in charge and the media over the people who have control and made an absolute mess of it – then you are delusional.

      You’re attacking the opposition because you can’t defend your own parties actions.

      I’m done with you. I honestly don’t care what you think or have to say. Like I said – people as dumb as you are the reason this clown got elected.

    • you will have a bad chrsitmas ho ho ho

    Virginia is forsaken.

  8. Reopen but stay safe. Masks and 6 feet

    • Agreed. The problem I see in my city is that about 60% of people don’t do it.

    • @Foosgoalie that is EXACTLY why lock downs where required. People dont take viruses seriously in the west because we haven’t had major outbreaks in decades and since you cant see it, they ignore warnings cause “everything is fine”

  9. Every State is starting to reopen including California. Sorry Libs.

    • Yes cause “libs” master plan is to keep people home!!… For…. Reasons!!

    • Deborah Freedman | May 15, 2020 at 8:25 PM | Reply

      California is not opening the entire state, just regions where numbers aren’t rising. We are doing the same in Oregon, with contact tracing in counties that are opening. I live in our most populated country, it won’t be opening any time soon.

    • Bovine One Shouldn’t you show sorrow for the republicans that are going to die unnecessarily too? It’s only fair, since they’re the reason so many have died already and so many more are about to.

  10. t’rump: “Vaccine or no vaccine, the virus will just go away.”
    Coronavirus: “No I won’t.”

    First it was stay at home so you don’t overwhelm the hospitals….then it was close everything but “essential” then the hospitals laid off people…then flatten the curve….now just stay at home till you reach phases 1-3…now it’s stay at home till you all starve and become homeless. Then we will let you live in the misery we created for you.
    Thanks demonrats…

    Where are all the deaths in Georgia after they reopened? What’s going on there? No news is good news is it been good for the state or not?Or is it bad for the Biden Campaign Network

    • Wait 2 more weeks. 3 week lag time for new infections.

    • Deborah Freedman | May 15, 2020 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      There were 704 new cases, and 13 new deaths today. They reopened exactly 2 weeks ago. It usually takes 3 weeks from exposure to get sick enough to get tested, 4 weeks to die. Wait a week or two, and tell us how well Georgia is doing.

    Another govenor more worried about his tax revenue than then the lives of the people who live in his state. So sorry VA because this is not going to go well

    • Deborah Freedman | May 15, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      The beltway has a lot of cases, and deaths. But, when you get to the parts of Virginia, where people have few teeth, the numbers are pretty good.

  16. Name Redacted | May 15, 2020 at 7:58 PM | Reply

    Bye Virginia…

  17. Anytime this administration is asked about more needed testing we hear
    “we have done more testing than any other Country”..
    While that is some great news that does not answer the question

    Normal deaths are being conflated with MSNBChinaVirus .. MSNBCannibal Hoax Scam fraud news

    • She’s my President “Normal deaths” (all cause average for all recent years) + reported Covid deaths total less than the actual deaths this year. Facts. All these extra corpses are proof that you are wrong.

      @Stu Pidas nice Fake account no history just some blank account .. Zero credibility .. BTW, your account info is under extreme surveillance for FARA act violations (Expect a fine from your home country or they face billions in sanctions)

    • She’s my President i’ve had this account dearie for years. Because i choose to not make it “public” doesn’t make it fake. Nice try in deflecting btw.

    • She's my President | May 16, 2020 at 2:33 AM | Reply

      @Stu Pidas Either way, you are already being looked into. I believe in Karma and give you the courtesy to bow out before the your life gets turned upside down.

    • She’s my President “Being looked into” !! How dare i state verifiable facts! I certainly hope you are just a troll, and don’t really believe the drivel you are spouting, because if you are even the slightest bit serious my faith in the human race in general and Americans in particular will have hit a new low. I knew the average American was not very informed or intelligent, but someone such as yourself would be lowering that already low bar by quite a bit. Wow, just wow.

    Of course they are low because there are no testing once you test people it will be high, you have to be as stupid as Trump to not understand that

  20. Soyboy lefties are also scared of dirt, they are going to be freaked out germaphobes for a while.
