    Well Trump took it further than they planned. They have no control over the money. Trump is doing all that can be done. Drastic measures by a leader who has been ahead of the curve. These same jokers first criticized POTUS for banning flight from China. Then pretend to be experts on how this should be handled. Pray for the citizens in Europe thay have to get home before Friday. Panic!

    During the Obama/Biden Administration, Italy was statistically ranked by the World Health Organization as #2 out of 191 countries. They have a Universal Healthcare system…

    THE USA:
    • The USA pays almost DOUBLE for Medical Care as what Italy does!!!
    • America was statistically ranked 37th by the WHO during the Obama/Biden Administration!!!

    Who refused to call it a pandemic because there leader has pandemic bonds. He stands to lose a lot of money by declaring a pandemic before July! And for us Americans, we are dead! The government is corrupt. And that goes for both Democrats and Republicans. Who ever wins the election, will do the same! Money before life’s. But maybe we will all be dead before the elections. Mark my words, there will be thousands of us who won’t be here in a couple of months. Thanks Trump and all of our politicians for putting money before life!

    Hate it or love it, the Chinese experience were at the expence of the Wuhan residents. In the absence of "instant cure", quarantine is the most effective way. Singapore was the highest outside China once, didn't take the China route, but generally the virus is contained. It is foolhardly to ignore invaluable lessons. Good luck and god bless the Americans.

    In Sweden we have banned public gatherings of 500 people, except if it’s a private affair. You can go to jail for organizing it.

    It used to be that the first day you’re sick you lose a part of your pay check (to discourage fraudulently calling in sick). That reduction in pay is now outlawed, and the government will subsidize businesses to afford it.

    In our neighbor Denmark public schools are closed.

    In the Nordics, we take this very seriously and we are not on Italy or even US levels of outbreak yet. Then again, our governments and parliaments believe in science.

    Italy is ready; they’ve done things like ramped up in-country manufacturing of hospital equipment for assisted breathing, etc to 50,000 units a month, locking down region travel (meaning I can’t leave my region without a permission slip from the region). Stores, all schools, events, malls are closed… only necessary stores are open until 1800. 3 meters between customers is required, masks and gloves are required in public. No one is getting out UNLESS STRICTLY NECESSARY! The local police are stopping folks to check for permission and to tell them to go home

The flu may? but this isn't 'the flu', Trump & his administration have given out so much disinformation they've endangered the American people. Trumps need to keep the numbers low , play it down & refusal to widespread testing has cost & will cost more lives.. This could have & would have been handled different if Trump hadn't been more worried about himself than the American population, but he doesn't. He hugs & kisses the flag as a show of his 'patriotism', but the people can die so he doesn't look bad..

    I feel sorry for America, one of the few countries in the world that doesn't provide free health care. I doubt that people will go and pay a $3000 hospital bill just to check if they have the virus or not, so it will be hard for America to ever know the true rate of infection.

  • Reply Papi Papi March 12, 2020 at 7:38 am

    Sorry but in Italy, in spite of some mistakes made at an early stage, we took it very seriously since mid February with cities and provinces in complete lock down when we had less than 500 cases while we were testing thousand of people. As a matter of fact we tested and still testing way more people than any other country. The hospitals are facing a lot of challenges but the Country is reacting in a fantastic way and everybody get admitted without any social or financial discrimination in spite of our fragile economy. Millions of Euro are donated to help the hospitals buying more equipments. Younger people are helping elderly in buying and paying their grocery. And the list can go on….Time will tell who was more responsible . It is very painful for all of us but we have been through difficult periods before and people are quickly adapting to this new reality, trying not to leave anybody behind. Family is one of the foundations of our culture and our economy and this is helping a lot now. And people here have real savings and families willing to help. We have an household debt which is a fraction of what people have in the US. Mortgages and credit cards debt are, again, a fraction of what you see in US and this will also help during the recovery from this tragedy. Time will tell the final outcome for all of us….good luck and stay strong…

    That curve shown at 2:44 minute is normal because: 1. It’s showing confirmed cases meaning case of people tested positive, and 2. 4 weeks ago US and all other countries outside of China wasn’t testing that many people except those coming directly from China or who had visited China. So if you dis visited China but France and meet there with a cousin who had visited China an come back mid January around 20th and was infected but without any symptoms, you was eventually infected and not tested ! Unfortunately they have been a huge campaign of disinformation about this corona virus since the beginning, that why the response of so many country is so late and useless

  • Reply MR intel March 12, 2020 at 8:59 am


    "As of March 8, about 500 cases of Covid-19 had been diagnosed in the U.S. Given the substantial underdiagnosis at present due to limitations in testing for the coronavirus, let’s say there are 2,000 current cases, a conservative starting bet.

    We can expect a doubling of cases every six days, according to several epidemiological studies. Confirmed cases may appear to rise faster (or slower) in the short term as diagnostic capabilities are ramped up (or not), but this is how fast we can expect actual new cases to rise in the absence of substantial mitigation measures.

    That means we are looking at about 1 million U.S. cases by the end of April; 2 million by May 7; 4 million by May 13; and so on."

    Applying the Covid-19 mortality rate of 3.4% calculated by the WHO, this means about 130.000 deaths in the USA by mid-May, and even assuming a slow-down when it gets warmer, about 1 million deaths by the end of June or beginning of July.

    There is one tiny weeny little difference between the US and Italy, which I think you'll start to see change those graphs soon.

    Italy has nationalised healthcare. Its citizens can get to a hospital to seek medical care. They are more readily able to be able to afford time off work. Chances are they might also be getting some sick leave pay as well.

    The US doesn't. A huge portion of it population cannot afford the time off work, nor the bills from even a simple visit, let alone prolonged care for a couple of weeks. People are going to be walking around unaware they are infected and worse yet, the most vulnerable, will be much more prone to dying from this. The infected rate might not shift that much from Italy's, but I suspect the death rate might be higher.

    The only solution would be for the federal government to cover all coronavirus treatment costs, and to introduce proper sick pay for workers. Its the only solution to this issue of the coronavirus pandemic. HOWEVER, it also comes with major problems, such as the US is so rotten to the core that there will be tons of back-room deals and self-profiteering. Also, lets face it, its never going to happen, especially from this administration. All they are caring about atm is the effect on the economy. People can die, so long as they can say 'the flu killed more people and the economy is strong' they'll pat themselves on the back and then ignore the bodies they are standing on

    For me, the most dense populated states and the states that under the average of 23°C temperature will suffer the most cases. The coronavirus cases is slowing down here in tropical country, but it's still spreading. We have advantages like high temperature and high humidity. Florida is the first state you all need to go to.

  • Reply wardiah love March 12, 2020 at 9:41 am

    Yes summer will definitely slowing down the cases, but people still need to practice social distancing, hygiene, self-quarantine, and healthy lifestyle before the summer comes in. Otherwise you gonna end up with many untreated patients that sure will boost the mortality rate.

    And stop using air-conditioner people, that thing is the perfect spot for virus to spread.

    They should be shutting down ALL public events. Having events with 250 people or less doesn't stop the spread of COVID-19. Do they think that COVID-19 cares if there are 250 people at an event?

    Coughing spreads droplets as far as six metres (19 feet 8.22 inches), and sneezing as much as eight metres (26 feet 2.961 inches). These droplets stay suspended in the air for up to 10 minutes.

    If 250 people are an event, and there are just 5 people at that event with COVID-19, those 5 people spread it to the people sitting around them. Now there are 25 to 100 people infected. All those people go home, work, and school. Now there is 100 to 1000 people infected. And so on and so on.
