The latest data suggests that social distancing appears to be working in some countries, and better than expected.

What should come from this is the need to trust medical and scientific experts, not leaders with zero clue (regardless of their self-proclaimed expertise), religious zealots, and flamers and trolls - paid and/or 'indie volunteers' - pushing whack agendas.

It seems to have peaked.

No country has yet to reach even 1% infected and will probably never even come close.

US is at 0.1% infected or 99.9% uninfected.

Of the 0.1% that get infected, 99% recover.

If you saw this CBS video of a crying nurse, IT WAS FAKE

As it turns out, the nurse was an Instagram model who had not worked as a nurse for over a year

So many leaders got it wrong as well and underestimating it. But to their credit, the basic hand washing and social distancing is working, everything else is science and a progress in working.

I'll wait until official reports done by medical experts have been released to learn 'how close' nations come to reaching any level.

And had more people listened to medical experts early on we wouldn't be at this stage. All leaders who took so long to finally accept what their intelligence agencies and medical experts had warned them about need to be called out. ALL! Especially those at the highest levels.

New Yorkers listened to Dr. Barbot and DeBlasio and look what happened?

America listened to Trump and look what happened. The virus is killing more Americans than anyone except maybe the Chinese.

You mean the incompetent ones?

But, I’m trying to deflect away from Donny’s continued incompetence by focusing on one state out of 50. Just like the federal stockpile isn’t for the states because the federal government isn’t comprised of the states.

Blacklabel:

so the Dems have a week to decide how to play this politically.

The "mainstream" media too. Rest assured, they will find a way to blame Trump.

Don’t worry. I’m sure your podcasters can blame the globalists.

Balance it out.

The initial model indicated 100,000-240,000 deaths in the USA. Now it has been revised downward several times due to the actions of the Trump administration listening to the medical professionals, no?

Who knows. But I think most people will assume whatever the number ends up Trump will claim it was his stable genius and expertise that kept the numbers low. While ignoring the reality that the numbers should be much lower than they ended up because of his inability to take action sooner. And his mixed messages. Listened to by his base.

I find it very interesting that when Trump does exactly what the medical professionals recommend, he is somehow blamed for the deaths. I havent seen any other county leader being personally blamed for deaths and definitely the previous President was not personally blamed for the H1N1 deaths, As a reminder:

60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

Readers, once again we ask you to put aside your political differences on these threads.

The initial model indicated 100,000-240,000 deaths in the USA. Now it has been revised downward several times due to the actions of the Trump administration listening to the medical professionals, no?

Has it?

So why is this happening?

It’s funny when conservatives asks questions that demonstrate they are incorrect.

Ok, so then the experts are responsible for any deaths too as Trump isnt doing anything but following their recommendations.

Glad you cleared that all up. (well except ignoring that many peoples lives have been saved by the so called "unapproved" drug)

As many as 4,000 seriously ill coronavirus patients in New York are being treated with the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, state health officials say.

explain this?

No it cant be his fault if he is following the direct guidance of the medical experts and everyone is supposedly ignoring anything he personally says. how can it be his fault in such a case that he is making no decisions and leaving it to the experts. or do you now have a problem with the experts too?

Mr. Cuomo, please don't lift the foot from the gas pedal too early.

If anything it is time to apply maximum pressure. Easter and Passover are significant threats to the social distancing guidelines.

If the numbers hide roses, they will flower.
