So what you're saying is that it's ok if 30,000 people die (with a decent chunk of them being healthy kids), just in the US, even tho it can be prevented or at least minimized?Destroying the whole worlds economy every year, causing people to lose jobs, and businesses to close, which causes a larger snowball effect to continue further destroy the economy, sending unemployment rates through the roof, to stop something that will kill a small fraction of 1% of people
Safety features (Nonsense?) that have had exactly what side effects that would compare to whats happening now?
So you’re okay with destroying the whole economy over the flu, every year, which has vaccinations, and steps can be taken to protect yourself? I guess with unemployment being as high as it would be, it wouldn’t be a problem for people to stay at home. Sure, why not crush everyone in the worlds retirement to protect a fraction of 1%. That seems logical.So what you're saying is that it's ok if 30,000 people die (with a decent chunk of them being healthy kids), just in the US, even tho it can be prevented or at least minimized?
I agree where the public service type news is concerned. We'll have to wait and see when the "blame and score political points" phase hits. Overall, I have very little hope the newsies realize that a world-wide epidemic is not the time or place for "business as usual". Regretfully, it's also impossible to discuss mainstream media without touching on politics. Political bias is their major flaw after all. So far, there have been some really stupid fake stories crafted to damage Trump.I haven't seen or read any particularly panic-inducing news really. It's been reasonably factual so far.
OK Boomer, please cite one.Political bias is their major flaw after all. So far, there have been some really stupid fake stories crafted to damage Trump.
Only to provide one example and not to dip this into the political realm, this is from an article by Tim Morrison on RCP:OK Boomer, please cite one.
Really? So where do we send all those young people so that they do not come in contact with the older people for whom the virus is a real threat? Young people can be, and are, infected and can, and are, spreading it to older folks.For younger folks with no health problems, this is just another flu bug and such precautions makes no sense.
I just thought we were playing a game of who's anecdotal evidence is more worthless.has anyone you know contracted the virus? So based on yourself, and the people you know, you’re going toss the rest of the statistics that say much less than 1% will die, are out the window?
I think the reporting can be discussed without a political tinge so here goes.Only to provide one example and not to dip this into the political realm, this is from an article by Tim Morrison on RCP:
President Trump gets his share of criticism some warranted, much not. But recently the presidents critics have chosen curious ground to question his response to the coronavirus outbreak since...www.realclearpolitics.com
They have a comment section where you can get your fill of debate.
Went to the grocery store yesterday, i wonder if people felt sorry for me buying some of the last of the bread on the shelf, hot dog buns. I ONLY NEEDED HD BUNS! I was kinda miffed burger buns were gone, gonna have to make an oblong burgerI just thought we were playing a game of who's anecdotal evidence is more worthless.
Huh? Talk about fake news.Funny how the media never talks about the 180,000 people that have recovered from this virus.
Welrd, I thought people all over the world had the coronavirus. Something like 197,000 cases worldwide???Huh?
Huh? Talk about fake news.

It's quite possible the whole "White House team dispersal" thing is just a foil to confuse and deflect controversy about the actual problem of how the international pandemic response team at the CDC WAS dismissed a couple of years ago. That it actually happened is even up on Snopes so it can't reasonably be denied. But mixing it up in peoples' minds with a made up non-event among White House staff might help. So that might just be your "fake story" right there under your nose."Bolton’s chosen approach to NSC 'streamlining' involved decapitating and diluting the White House’s focus on pandemic threats," Jeremy Konyndyk, a senior policy fellow at the Center for Global Development, wrote in a rebuttal. "He eliminated the senior director position entirely, closed the biodefense directorate, and spread the remaining staff across other parts of the NSC."
So please, still looking for...some really stupid fake stories crafted to damage....
Respectfully, you are refusing to understand the problem. It has been explained over and over and explained very well by a lot of people.Ah gee. Only 84,386 have technically recovered. The point remains the same. I guess the 209,824 that have contracted the virus and it hasn’t been fatal.....
