Trump and the gop should work a shift. Those domestic terrorist parties.

Today's figures show over 11 million cases so far of covid-19. It also states that maybe there have been 255,000 deaths. If you do the math that comes out to a 2.3% death rate. That means that 97.7 percent of people who get covid, SURVIVE! It is probably more because we will never really know how many people actually got infected. 97.7% chance of survival! And that is if you get the virus! I will take those odds any day of the week! However if you use the infected numbers that the CDC estimated last week of 20 million instead of the 11 million so far, that survival percentage goes even higher. Also, the WHO, a little while back, estimated that in the United States there probably are 60 million people infected so far. Now use those numbers and you get an even higher survival rate!

More BS-19 propaganda. Hospitals are not overwhelmed with Covid patients - - they’re virtually empty. Go to sites such as Bitchute, BrandNewTube and 153news (because AM-posts censors most of these videos) and search #FilmYourHospital. You’ll find this is all fear-mongering psyop propaganda to keep this hoax alive.

Exaggerations. The Covid Project has a current hospitalizations map here: Then Google search total hospital beds in a corresponding state. You will discover two things: 1) many states have less than 1,000 hospitalizations 2) The number of Covid hospitalizations to total beds varies from 1/10th to 1/4th. Examples: Texas has 8k cases & 80k beds = 1/10th. Crowded hospitals should transport non-critical patients to less crowded hospitals in their same network. Ease the burden on these exhausted Drs & Nurses!

Hospitals should give priority to non-denialists. If the patient is a Covid denialist, they should be immediately be rolled into a dying room and left. No sense wasting resources on them.

@keith I'm talking about the guy that dismantled the early warning pandemic group we had in China a year before the virus started. I'm talking about the guy that was warned about the virus becoming a pandemic but prep equipment and supplies. I'm talking about the guy that said the virus was a Democrat conspiracy, but also magically disappear in April.

Are you talking about the guy that pushed science and medical to new heights which delivered two vaccines with 90% + effective rate in a matter of months? The guy that was called a xenophobe for cutting off flights from China early on? You should try thinking things through you might just like it.

If so then this is a chemical warfare thats going on

And it will continue because we have some utterly selfish, willfully ignorant and monumentally stupid people out there just laughing at people dying. There's nothing hilarious about this or the media reporting it, then derisively calling it fake. This uncaring, laid-back, denial attitudes that half of the country has is why these surges are getting worse than ever.

The top five US states with the highest positivity testing rate for COVID 19 are states with lower population compared to the higher populated states. The one common thing is the five states have Republican governors. They live in less populated agricultural areas outside of the big cities, not like the big cities of the West and East coasts. In the big cities it’s hard to keep your distance from one another. My GOD! What are these people doing? The five highest positivity testing rate states are; 1) Wyoming (92.9%), 2) South Dakota (55.9%), 3) Iowa (50.2%), 4) Kansas (43.4%), and 5) Idaho (43.7%).

Professional sports team uses a “Bubble” strategy to keep the players from being infected by the virus as they travel across the country playing their schedule. Everyone is tested and quarantined for two weeks before being allowed to interact with other people in the Bubble. People in the Bubble must still wear face mask, washing their hands, and maintaining social distance when not on the playing field. No outsider is allowed close contact with anyone in the Bubble without a face mask. Testing alone will not guaranty you are not infected and spreading the virus. The virus must reach a certain level in your body before the test detects it. You might get a negative result, but still be infected and spreading the virus. The White House had conducted multiply daily testing, yet because of poor practices, it became a super spreader of the virus. The corona virus is spread by people contact, so wear a face mask, wash your hands, keep your social distance, get tested if you feel ill or have came in contact with person infected with virus. Avoid getting and spreading the virus by wearing a face mask and keeping social distance from other people not within your household and limit outside interaction with people outside your household. The virus must first enter the local community from someone infected from the outside. If it does enter into the local community, you must isolate for two weeks to keep the spread of the virus. Some communities have “Lock Down” to burnout the virus and keep it from spreading within the local community.

@Kris LVgirl they are spaced out but the whole town goes to the same school, same grocery store, same doctors office.... the town has a more direct interaction with the same people over and over.

jp89il actually I would think a small farming community would be spaced out for example. The reason NYC was in a huge surge was because ten people use the same trash receptacle in a common apartment or 200 people are on the same platform on the subway. Hence they shutdown at 3% positivity rate.
jp89il 2 օր առաջ
@Kris LVgirl but not adjusted for how people interact with one another in small populations. A town of 1000 is likely to all be around each other because they are dependent on each other. You don’t have 5 grocery stores to go to you have one, you don’t have 10 different schools you have one, you don’t have 3 or 4 hospitals you have one......

People keep bring up the mortality rate for Covid 19. The mortality rate for Ebola was 90%. Ebola was mainly transmitted by blood. The Ebola outbreak lasted from March 2014 to June 2016. Most people affected by the outbreak were in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. There were also cases reported in Nigeria, Mali, Europe, and the U.S. had about 28,616 people who were suspected or confirmed to be infected; 11,310 people died worldwide. Covid 19 is easier to spread than any previous virus. It’s true that most Covid 19 patients can recover without having to stay in the ICU, but the ones who can’t, uses a lot of medical resources for treatment. Medical facilities are going bankrupt and shutting down because patients who recover after a prolong stay in the ICU are unable to pay the medical costs of their recovery since most of them are out of work. Other non-Covid 19 patients who require urgent medical care are put at risk, since their injury or illness won’t put other people at risk and will be given less medical care. No other virus we had encountered had basically shutdown the whole world.
