Your Level of Concern About the Coronavirus......on a scale of 1-10

its baffling me how cases are still increasing in NYC .

We have been shutdown for over 2 weeks now.

It would need to have come down by now, unless the virus "lays low" for longer than they say
Case counts are purely a function of how much testing they are doing. Also soon it will be better to stop worrying about total cases and just do a last 10 day count because once someone gets tested they almost always are symptomatic and at that point they probably won't be spreading the virus much beyond 10 days from a confirmed positive test unless they are seriously ill.
 
"The Trump administration's decision to let states chart their own responses to the coronavirus crisis rather than impose a national strategy will cost thousands of lives and is likely to result in an open ended outbreak rolling across the country, a dozen public health experts told NBC News."
Perhaps the biggest lie ever told during this pandemic...thousands of lives huh?

The total estimated deaths from covid in the states that have implemented no restricitons is 140 in WY, 169 in ND, 204 in SD, and 447 in NEB, and they are likely overstated greatly. The concept that laying people off in areas with no virus, in effect hiding from nothing, is ridiculous. There is no curve to bend because you cant improve on zero.
 
It was funny how CBS New York was supposedly running footage of an overrun NYC hospital. It turns out they stole the video footage from Sky News in Italy.

This could be made by some of RB's cohorts. Nothing wrong with wanting claims verified.

 
If they had 1m people it wht difference would it have made? What was Trump left with when elected? Obama was warned in 2009.
Trump's team was informed as well.

Just that he fired most of those people by the time their knowledge would have been needed.

All Trump's stupidity is slowly coming back to bite us in the ass.

He got news on both sides. It's the same with everything. Some days guys say he should listen to Fauci and other days not listen to Fauci. Again, what difference would it have made?

Those are also the states with no big cities and vast open areas.

Exactly, even here in MN, where we have a fair amount of cases, 31 out of 87 counties have zero cases, so we have towns of 10-15 -20K of people locked down, people out of work, for nothing, they're not mitigating anything, because there is nothing.

Thank god the governors of a few of the wide open states are still resisting that, it's pointless for hundreds of thousands of people to be thrown out of work for nothing, because the mitigation can only fail, when you're at zero cases, you can only go up.
 
I call 'em like I see 'em. You are an idiot.
You are a genius when it comes to numbers, I’m not going to dispute that. When it comes to your social IQ it appears you are lacking. That is very common with people who excell in math-science-engineering etc.....

You like to call others (you’ve practically made a second career of it) out but seem emotionally unable to handle being questioned yourself and devolve to unprovoked name calling.

I will be the first to admit I’m far from the smartest guy there is but I’m sharp enough to identify people who suffer from “smartest guy in the room” syndrome.

Socrates was once told he was the wisest man in the world. Socrates was aghast and responded “that’s ridiculous-I know nothing”. The person then responded “that response is what makes you the wisest man in the world”

In the word(s) of a great philosopher, cool.

Why don't you click the link and read the article for yourself. You'll understand if I take the word of the dozen experts cited in the article over yours I hope
 
Right on the money CB.
It was obviously a rhetorical question.

Kane meant "population" instead of "size". He posted it merely to shut down debate. I gave a quizzical, "textbook" answer to a stupid, rhetorical question.

EJD rightly focused on population density stats. Lets not blow this into an international incident.
