Abstract from the paper (emphasis mine):

 

 

Thanks for the info!

 

What I'm worried about now is if Trump tries to wave his hands and encourage people to throw medical advice out the window and return to life as normal. In that situation, it won't matter how many trillions they dump into the economy because the virus will run it's course.

 

I'm not sure chucking American lives into the furnace to power the economy through this is a winning position like they think it is.

1. This is a really reassure tweet that calms me in a time of panic...

 

2. He's an idiot That plant never had any capability to produce the required parts. It's a vehicle assembly plant that assmebles end item components onto a car. It would take months to get them up and running.

 

The Tier 2 suppliers are the ones that have the capability to actually make these parts. They already have the presses and equipment to manufacture the components. It just needs to be retooled to make the new parts.

What bothers me is the pointing of fingers claiming someone personally is responsible for people dying because we didn't have 100,000 more ventilators in the US.

 

 

 

When you're the leader, you're always responsible. You know that, anyone that runs a good business or coaches a team or has humility and has people look up to them knows that. You hire someone bad and they f#&% up, that buck ultimately stops with you.

 

At least good leaders are like that. 

 

Trump's inaction and lies are the primary factor in what will end up as tens of thousands of deaths.

US about to hit 95,000 positive cases. However, New York and New Jersey account for well over half of that total...

Haven't seen the numbers so I'm not positive on this but I bet they account for half or more of the completed tests as well

Even if they retool, wouldn't it be months before they would have something ready to go? I think any medical device mfg. would need to be tested and then approved by the government. I don't know what is worse, having no ventilator or having one that doesn't work right. 

 

Hopefully we as a country/world don't have a short term memory about this. We need to think critically about our healthcare system and where PPE/equipment is made. We are only setup for a regional events and not a world wide event like this.

There's good reason to believe he knew about it in December.

I may be misremembering. I'm not finding an earlier date in December on the google, and what I'm finding seems like his first briefings on it were in early January.
