Seems like this is negative for the hospital not the doctor...He will just get another sweet gig in 2 seconds...

Seriously! Hospitals are begging people out of retirement. It seems like a bad idea to fire anyone for anything that wasn't like really worth firing someone for

Dudes at the gym that wear that oxygen restriction masks are boning out over this!

 

 

Also, could you imagine being ARod...Sitting at home, chilling out...watching old games you played in...maybe watching some Shark Tank episodes you were in...trying to not let J-Lo put on any of her lame songs or horrible movies...then all of a sudden calls??

 

He probably looked at his phone and saw it was Trump and rolled his eyes.

There is probably more to it but still, it seems stupid.

 

Maybe the doctor was like him...

Exactly. We're all going to have to be sewing our own.

Here's a great example of why we can't trust anything coming out of China. Their mortality rates could have been far higher than we've heard.

Yeah, none of this makes sense to me. If China itself was late in determining the threat and severity, then by the time they locked down Wuhan, millions of people would have already come and gone from the infected area, dispersing into a country of 1.3 billion.

 

Wuhan may be a model for the success of draconian measures, but how could life possibly be getting back to normal  across China -- public gatherings, sporting events and all? They talk about no new COVID cases in Wuhan, and there appears to be ZERO new cases for all of China. Not sure how that could happen.

 

It would be like locking down New York two weeks ago and declaring the rest of the U.S. unaffected.

Wait...no one actually believed anything coming out of China, did they?

People think our government lies?  Our government looks like an open book compared to China.  North Korea thinks China lies a lot.

 

And why is the Netherlands having such issues and dying at such a massive rate per infection?

Because they seem to have chosen to do what Trump and many other Americans would like to do.  Let it run its course and try to manage the sick people...

And also they seem to only be testing the people that come in with serious symptoms.:

 

"The confirmed case fatality rate in the Netherlands of 6.3% stands in stark contrast to its neighbor Germany’s 0.6%. The Netherlands, with a younger overall population and one that is almost 5 times smaller than Germany’s, has 60% more deaths. And, unlike Germany, the Dutch haven’t done widespread testing, so it’s likely its number of confirmed cases significantly underestimates the actual number of infections."

You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to know that anyone believing anything that a country that is renowned for controlling their media (China) says is a complete moron. If it smells like crap and looks like crap, what China is reporting is probably crap

Thank you.

 

I would have thought the country with the world's greatest healthcare system (eyeroll) would test and cure everyone in seconds (eyeroll)

401 deaths in US yesterday. By far the deadliest day. 
 

177 today already and it’s early. 

I predict over 22,000 new cases today and 500 deaths.

 

I think we will see it go up for the next 7-10 days and then sort of stabilize but with a lot of new cases still each day..

He's bungled this from the start, and now he wants to stigmatize Blue States to win political points.
