    There is just no way to know, if you destroy the economy and this ends up no worse than
    the swine flue...……??????

    If you dont and it ends up worse ??????

    Either way, we are about to face conditions we have not seen in our life time.

    I hear ya......

    Looking at the big picture, I think that the young and strong should go back to work on 4/20 and the elderly and high risk stay hunkered down, maybe for months.

    Elderly and high risk can't gamble on getting it while the young and strong can handle it. They will probably get it anyway, if not now, then next year. Obviously, a vaccine would save our asses.

    We can't risk a severe depression. The risk is greater infection of the young and the strong, but they can overcome Coronavirus. We can't shut down the economy for months while paying the unproductive during the same months.

    that day has come and gone.....


    The panic in our country is because areas that have been hardest hit had some existing condition , larger clustered
    old population, large populations of homeless, larger populations of drug use, we did not address those prior to
    this and now we are paying the price. Our chickens are coming home to roost.

    Our leaders are in a bad spot.... between a bad choice and a worse choice.

    Be safe and try not to worry about it, it is out of our hands..

    At some point...sooner the better, we are going to have to get back to business. For example, you've got millions of people out there with private health insurance who are being laid off or were running their own business which has been shut down. Eventually those plans cannot be paid for and they will be canceled. Then the mammograms are being put off, the required surgery is being put off, people try and cure their sick kids without professional intervention.....

    There are so many scenarios for death tied to this from an economic perspective as well....that we cannot just cast it aside as an after thought.

    Gotta get back to business ASAP. Most of the people out here are getting the minimum 2 weeks pay from the casinos before they need to file for unemployment. Some are getting a month. Once we inch closer to those days....as the clock ticks, the economic calamity grows into a health calamity as well. People who can't make the mortgage, the rent, the basics...can become their own health crisis.

    You are wrong as usual. Italy has about 8 thousand deaths, from 80 thousand known cases. That's about a 10% death rate in itself. A more accurate figure is 8 thousand dead, with about 10 thousand recovered, that's a death rate of 45%. There are 62 thousand unresolved cases. The number of new cases seems to be dropping off some, so that's a good sign, and it may indicate that the "distancing" thing is starting to work.

    no country in the world has more than 1 infection for 1000
    people, china has 81782 and it slowed and they have 4.8 billion, Italy has started to slow and they have 80589 out of 59 million people, South Korea has 9241 cases and they have 50.8 million people

    So you need to explain where 75% of the people that get it are going to die. Wisconsin has 707 cases out of 5.8 million, we have a .1 death rate
    and had 5% fewer new cases today than yesterday.

    pay attention, Im going to let you all know how this all started here.

    its obvious, the democrats will do anything they can to get trump out, or disrupt his presidency to the point that they feel the American people will get fed up and want him out.

    they tried the Russian shit, Ukraine, when all that failed, they went to impeachment.

    all along since he became president, they pushed for open borders, trump wanted walls, the democrats knew letting in millions of poor people from south and central America would overwhelm both our healthcare systems and our welfare system.

    everything they did failed to stop trump or at least disrupt trumps presidency.

    Cuomo, democratic gov of NY, decided to let all illegal immigrants get drivers licenses. He didn't care how it would overwhelm the dept of motor veh, and make it so hard on NY state citizens, didn't matter, he knew it would piss off trump, the same guy that estimated 8-16 million NYers are getting infected. ok, lets see it.
    anything to make trump look bad. anything. the democratic gov of California, estimated 55-80 million Californians would get infected. ok lets see it. anything to make trump look bad.

    but what no one knows if how the democratic assholes conspired to start the virus here.

    they knew long ago, maybe November china was having a problem with a virus they couldn't stop.

    secretly, they sent recruiters to china, promised them, hey, come to America, we have jobs, and we don't have this virus. Knowing that if some of the Chinese people were already infected, as they were told by experts, the virus would spread here quickly. so they recruited thousands, brought them into NY, mixed them in with the Chinese population here, no one would notice another 20 thousand Chinese people here in NY, 20 thousand a day probably come here on a weekly basis.

    and where is the largest Chinese population in NY, in northern queens. the democratic political strategists knew exactly what they were doing. they also knew a very large population of Hispanic people also lived in northern queens. A perfect combo to bring this virus to its full potential. Hispanics are one of the highest populations to suffer from asthma.
    great, mix in this virus that attacks the respiratory system with a few million Hispanics.

    they knew what they were doing.

    and ofcourse, people in NY came in contact with these imported Chinese people, went all over the country, places like mardigras, all part of the intricate plans of the democratic strategists.
    spread it all over. people will die, lots of people, this is finally the way to disgust americans and blame it all on trump.

    notice the highest death rate today in a hospital, Elmhurst hospital, NORTHERN QUEENS, what, something like 14 or 15 people died there today from corona virus.

    all planned out, democrats have no morals, anything to get rid of trump, if it costs in lives, they feel, well, theres casualties in all wars and getting rid of trump is a war for them.


    so in 20 years from now, when one of these scumbags that helped arrange this entire thing is either arrested for something, or is on his death bed and wants to make good with god, he will confess,

    you heard it here first,

    I agree with most of what you said. Social distancing will prevent much of the country to be like NYC. US Death rate will be below 1918-19 flu (675,000). World lost 50 million souls. The media went bat shit when we put some illegal kids in jail for a few days.

    We can still save the economy from a severe depression. Maybe we'll experience only a 1 yr depression. That is, a 10% drop in GDP.

    The answer is a man made biological weapon that's a helluva lot worse than Covid-19.

    The "worse case scenario" guys were predicting the following for Italy:

    60,000,000 population x 70% catch it x 1.09% of people who catch it will die.

    That's about 420,000 Italian dead. Currently (8 pm EDT 3/26) 8100 dead in Italy, according to Johns Hopkins. They have lost about 700 people for each of the last 5 days, which may be the best news in the world this week.

    Who you gonna believe?

    yeah, the health commissioner and the mayor told all NYers go out to china town and have a blast. The project was already in the works, they just had a little coaching from the strategists, and might not have even known they were being used as puppets.
    Unless the military steps in fast, hospitals like Elmhurst, which is I believe a city hospital, will not have staff in a coupole of weeks, they will start getting ill. they put a refrigeratered (sp) truck in back of hospital to house the dead.
    but the great mayor of NYC told everyone 2 weeks ago, this is not so bad, don't worry, go , enjoy yourselves, nerve of trump shutting down china travel into our country, what a racist.

    all those that voted for him, deserve him now.

    an if what fox news posted tonight was true, how Cuomo spent 100s of millions on projects for upstate ny(always upstate ny) that are vacant now, abandoned, he is a total asswipe also that should be removed from office immediately. totally unprepared and ofcourse trump gets blamed for everything.
    Cuomo never gave a shit about NYC yet people elected him.

    I think the last count was 81,000 cases in the US. 37,000 of those are in NY. Pretty amazing that almost half the cases are in 1 state and I suspect NYC has a huge portion of the 37,000.

    We still need to get accurate data on who is dying FROM corona and who is dying WITH corona in their system.

    CDC should really be collating data by noting the prior health of each case.

    Great distinction. I believe the numbers are horribly skewed without it.
