The Next Pandemic: SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19

STACY MCCAIN: Coronavirus: The Wrong Numbers. Will the media ever admit the failure of doomsday projections? 

 

What matters, from the perspective of avoiding a crisis that overwhelms our health-care system, is not how many people are infected with the coronavirus, but rather the number of patients hospitalized.

 

As tests for the Chinese virus have become more widely available, a majority of people who test positive — more than 80 percent in some states — are never hospitalized. Earlier projections of a system-crashing crisis have so far been proven false, but the media refuse to acknowledge the failure of the doomsday prophets and their computer-generated pandemic models.”

 

I’d say it’s a little early to declare victory yet, but I did just hear from a doc in New Orleans that his ICU was full, but not overloaded.

 

We socially distance.

 

Maybe we don't have a huge problem.

 

"We overreacted." 

 

Maybe 1 and 2 were cause and effect, Stacy McCain. 

 

We didn't overreact in NYC.

Lord...HCQ....You know what would have saved 10's of thousands of lives and trillions in economic activity? Starting our current state of action in February instead of the end of March, having all states adhere to a common protocol...you know....having our general ***** together.....which will still have more lives and economic activity than HCQ ever will ....and yet here the nation is ....talking about HCQ like its a difference maker...

Yah I’m sure if the sitting president shut down travel entirely there  wouldn’t have been riots in every major city.

 

Now can you answer my question? If not, hush it. I don’t see anyone saying it’s a cure. The closest thing was a silly meme. 

 

Boston Medical Center has been treating everyone that is even suspected with it, I was curious if it was now being provided by general care docs.

What about if Dems were in control and we didn't shut down the borders for weeks after they were shut down?  Talk about a difference-maker...

There’s not one western nation that shut down anything or even contemplated it in February and no leader would have made that choice.  To focus on that makes you even more intellectually dishonest than you already are.

 

There are hundreds of clinical trials that are now taking place so you should not discount the benefit of drugs to help minimize the severity of cases and death.

I called the article bull**** because it made an accusation that Trump did nothing for 70 days and offered no evidence of when he should have acted. A point I clearly stated in the following reply.

 

 

This is your reply below:

 

 

Here is your original post of the article that I originally responded to as bull****. NOTICE THE FIRST SENTENCE IN THE TWITTER POST AND BOLDED PARTS IN THE ARTICLE YOU COPIED AND PASTED.

 

 

So, let me recap:

 

1) You post an article, the point of which was to accuse the Trump Administration of failing to act for 70 days

 

2) I call it bull****, and provide a complete timeline of accurate, verifiable facts showing why it was reasonable for Trump and every other leader to not realize how substantial the threat outside of China was until late Feb. I ask you to tell us when you think he should have acted and why.

 

3) You refuse to answer my question. You respond that I called the article bull**** and ask me to prove it (even though I already did with the facts in the timeline).

 

4) I go through the article, AGAIN, and literally find nothing, AGAIN, that says WHY he should have done more. I point out to you that there is literally no evidence presented in the article to show there was a failure of Trump to act in that first 70 days.

 

5) Your response then is to actually say the article didn't claim Trump waited 70 days to act. You then stated it proves I didn't read it

 

6) It is in the actual twitter post you copied, in the very first sentence of the article you posted, and the ENTIRE POINT of the article. So, apparently YOU didn't read ANYTHING that YOU copied and posted.

 

7) You are an idiot, and I mean that in the kindest "you have a room temperature IQ" kind of way.

 

This is exactly why I refuse to interact with that poster in any way. Went through a very similar discussion a while back and realized that they have no interest in actual discussion. Just blasts links with no information, biased interpretation, or blatantly false information and ignores any information provided by the other side.

Every so often we get a visit from JCAHO.  What a worthless ***** organization that is.  Every time they come they find some stupid thing to ding us on so that they can justify their worthless jobs.  Now all that ***** has been thrown out the window.

This is junk all over Twitter when I was trying to find a quote from Fauci. Craziness, though on Twitter, it went 8 layers deeper.

 

It's like saying Trump released the virus to stop a surging Joe Biden or Bezos released it so he could have a surge in profits at Amazon and Whole Foods.

God Yes.

 

Every two years we had to scramble around,

 

and the end result was the same as you described.

Why don't you go back to claiming Trump recommended fish tank cleaner as a cure for the virus? As fvcked as that is it has more credibility than this post.

I recommend everyone turn off the hype driven NY centric television and go on one of the statistics driven website. You’ll find actual NUMBERS there, as opposed to drama. As an example, California, our most populace state,  has only 300 deaths from this virus in well over a month. This is NOT the nation wide emergency you’re seeing play out on TV. But stock video of NYC hospitals and exhausted medical professionals are far more compelling.

The talking points being released by the TDSers are even nuttier than usual the last 48 hours. 

Hydroxychloroquine is unproven for COVID-19 treatment!  Fine, then you don't take it if you end up with COVID-19. Shesh  If only there was some sort of drug that could be prescribed for TDS.

And the rewriting of history to make the Chinese out to be saints, and Trump a sinner?  :blink:  GFY.

:lol:

 

And again, the Dems blowing Russia is like them doing the same for the terrorists Trump had killed.  Pathetic.

In the meantime medical professionals are being furloughed because there's not enough "normal" medical work to do. I've been to the VA hospital 3 times in the last two weeks and it's been like a morgue. I probably rode the elevator 8 times during those visits and only once had a fellow passenger.
