    CNN should show the pharma roundtable meeting.
    It's more objective.
    Looks like they could get a vaccine out by end of April.
    They are testing right now in China.

    Doctors are saying stay home if you think you have the virus. You will get over it like a cold or flu. Go to a hospital only if you are actually having serious lung issues or have other chronic issues like heart problems or kidney disease.

    With this guy leading, we are screwed.

    But at least he's being honest, that when the US starts testing, we're going to find a ton of our population are infected.

    This same group has put the gestapo on the spread of information via mass media unless it is approved by his agency. Also this is the same group that scrubbed all the US data that we already had (barely any, but its now been removed).

  • Reply crash bandicoot March 2, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    This is a prime example as to why we need Medicare for all just think about all the people who could be infected who will not go to the doctor to get checked out because they cannot afford to risk going to the doctors and getting that medical bill there was someone who got checked out just to make sure he didn't have it and he got charged $3,000 medical bill just to make sure he didn't have the Coronavirus if that's not disgusting it makes you sick to your stomach I don't know what will we need Medicare for all we need Bernie Sanders

    Oh Just shut up…Last week CA's Governor Gavin Newsom just reported at that time (News from Feb 27th) CA only has 200 testing kits and more than 7000 people waiting to be examined. And before this, the US already has 10,000 people died during this flu season.
    If you consider COVID-19 has a similar symptom as flu, how CDC knows no deaths in this 10,000 people are because of the COVID-19?

    BTW, if you go to CDC's website and see how many people been tested for COVID-19, you will realize how slow they've been updating the numbers (, Also I just realized they change the website layout today. I can find how many people been tested using CDC's testing kits yesterday (around 470ish), and how many were positive/negative. Today (Mar 2nd) they hid the total number of testing kids been used, which makes it hard to calculate the effectiveness of CDC diagnosis the virus.
    The link below is a bunch of people who organized the cases in North America (USA+Canada)via news (
    Feel free to compare the data between US Gov and the data gathered from the news reports.

    Amazing how the media still wants to make NcoV19 more than it is. It’s a flu! That’s it. A flu! Stop sensationalizing it! The doctor did his best, but the news commentators kept trying to get him to make it sound sooo bad. Yes, schools and businesses will close. It’s a very easily spread virus. Some people will die from this, just as with any other flu. I am a senior citizen, I could die if I get it. I am no more fearful of this virus than any other flu virus. It’ll be ok.

Never mind that the Democrat media are hyping this to hurt Trump as they do with every other discredited story. All that matters is Orange Man Bad.

    Say goodbye to grandma because this government has already written her off. They don't care if 2% die. They don't care enough to do screening. They don't care enough to have a plan (or tell us the plan). They don't care enough to halt flights until we actually have test kits! The US government only has 75000 test kits for a nation of 350 MILLION. And they just got them because they messed up the first batch. But still not enough, still NOT EVEN USING THEM on incoming international flights! Its nuts. So….say goodbye to the elderly you care for. Trump doesn't care.

    Constantly saying not to worry while you do nothing to prepare (I've seen the response up here in Seattle and its a JOKE what the government is doing in Kirkland and sad sad joke). If the US government was actually taking this seriously and PROFESSIONALLY (like putting up actual quarantine signs instead of hand written notes which is what they are doing in Kirkland) then people could be more calm. But telling us to not wear masks is nuts. And then not screening people in north Seattle area is nuts. I live up there and the government here is doing literally NOTHING. They are having press conferences to talk about how they are thinking about doing things but they can't act until they all agree. Its just a dark comedy.

    Despite what Mrs Meloni is now saying on the Itlaian program "Povera Patria" (on air on RAI2 TV channel), even contradicting CNN, we have heard China has developed a 15-minutes test for coronavirus capable to reveal the presence of the virus in a time much less than the one required by tampones we are using in Italy.

    Italian national healthcare system which by our politicians is claimed to be <<the best existing in the world>>, as it is now telling the show, hasn't those test implemnted yet. Italian labs are still using tampones which need much more time for any single occurrence.

    The numer of death is growing with a somesort of exponential law? Has someone tried to plot data into a graph to see the resulting curve??

    They are also saying that the block of flights from and to China has been a totally useless measure. Therefore, American Airlines, UK Airlines, Canadian Airlines, Kuwait Airlines, the Turkish Government, among other implementing the same ban, all of them are stupid. Uniquely, Itlaian politician and political scientists are full of their faculties to lie to tourists and all the human kind.

    They forget (or want to forget) tht if other countries can demonstrate the propagation of the virus in Europeas favoured by our irresponsibility, then we can be sure all the border will be closed, expecially Frejus, Mount Bland, Brennero and the few other infrastrcutures from which all the Italian export is currently vehiculated. Tourism is a relevant invoice of the Italian economy but it is not the first. Without logistics and exportations our economy ill be destroyed. I hope CNN would reply to that show and to what they are in general saying.

    This item below illustrates why voters need to deal with the corporatists, who prioritize megaprofits and consolidated wealth over public safety (as has always been the case). Hoarding resources at the expense of the many. The real change we need to make lies in making the Popular Vote decide presidential elections instead of the Electoral College. Nothing justifies allowing a faction to control elections over the will of the nationwide majority of voters. Its broader threat is getting clearer every day now.
