Yesterday, he said he is doing a very good job with 100K deaths and was congratulating himself. Before that he wanted to open US on easter. Now he is saying 240K-1.6M. Everything this guy touches goes belly up.

It refers to the weakness of not having a technocratic authoritarian government such as that of the Asian countries who were able to control the pandemic. Americans care deeply about their freedoms and are willing to put hundreds of thousands of lives at risk so that they don’t allow the government to take control, fearing that doing so will never give our freedoms back (its a weak argument by the way)

Its so sad that is an undoctored quote from the POTUS.

100-200k deaths in US is truly unacceptable for the country with supposedly the “best healthcare system in the world”. Just compare to South Korea: 10k cases and just 165 deaths and they are stabilizing. Why couldnt US contain the virus like S Korea? They are also very densely populated in their major urban cities.

Also because we are the only citizens still leaving our goddamn apartments! I am all for exercise and mental health etc. but they were ORDERED to stay inside unless an emergency. The way the US has handled this is laughable.

Remember the US health care system is the best IF you can afford it and IF you have access to it. It is not designed for this type of mass infection rate where so many need care at once. We never got ahead of this thing due to our leaders inability to comprehend the omcoming tidal wave. We did the same with pearl harbor, 911, and the space shuttle explosion. We knew things were wrong but we disregarded the signs.

But still the death rate is still 2%

M3 I also agree you can say this about any disease but these are people not numbers. Just because it’s a small number doesn’t mean we should just let nature takes its course. If we can help at all why wouldn’t we?

We are debating the estimates which vary based on who you ask. What scares me is that an esteemed Wharton grad with no shortage of uh untested medical opinions is steering the COVID titanic.

USA...USA...USAAAAA..........be best.

I have an employee who is very sick with COVID (on life support in the ICU).

This is more complicated because they were out of town & he was hospitalized out of state, so it is hard for us to get anything to them in person. Also, I’m concerned about his team members and would love ideas to support them
