Oh, the answer is "yes," ... especially where socialized medicine falls under the spotlight. I suppose you believe that China has been completely forthright.

tmiddles wrote:Again what is the motive for the Italian government?

... to prevent the world from associating their abysmal medical care with their socialized medicine. The Marxists of the world ranked Italy as #2 after all!

covid19 is much stronger that the flu is typically. I believe what I'm being told on this one because:

I already acknowledged your inescapable political motives. You have offered nothing compelling as evidence to believe any of your hype and there are the following reasons to summarily dismiss your claims:

1 - There is every reason to lie to support the NEXT hoax in the chain running up to November
2 - They are under immense pressure (due to #1) to support the facade because November is just around the corner.
3 - Thousands of doctors are currently being pressured by management who is pressured by politicians. It's right in front of us. None are in positions to go against the scam without destroying their careers.
4- This flu is much weaker than those of previous flu seasons. I officially volunteer to contract it. I'd march right out and get it myself if there were any cases of it. Judging by the news, people are dropping like flies all around me from coronahoax, yet I can't find a single case so I can get it myself. I am smart enough to recognize an urban legend, and I notice that all reports of coronaflu in social media are all "a friend/relative of a friend." Why is it that none of the millions of those infected are vlogging their experience?

Might be a sign of the times. It's his money, he's worth $114 Billion. Amazon also can pay as little as $0 in federal taxes.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos faces backlash after publicising a relief fund the public can donate to for his contract employees working during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Amazon Relief Fund was created with $25m from the e-commerce company to assist its "employees and partners", specifically those who are responsible for the necessary task of delivering all the products consumers order across the US.

Let me guess you will also decline to clarify what you mean by my strawmanning. It is entirely unclear.

Strawmanning is swapping in a different, easier argument to address. How have I done that?

And how do you reconcile your argument that the Italian health care system is inferior when they get better grades than we do?

Your total farce of "valid raw data" is debunked in my sig. As far as I know not only have you never presented anything that meets your own, entirely unknown standard, but no one has. It's a joke.

IBdaMann wrote:

So as robots administering autopsies they upload directly to a public cloud don't exists your argument here is pretty much:
Where is the valid raw data?
Doctors are tainted.
Only doctors can supply the data.
Therefore it was a rhetorical question because doctors are lying.

I consider this to be well beyond reasonable doubt since it would only take one doctor to blow the whistle and if it's a hoax billions of dollars will be lost for nothing.

IBdaMann wrote:...your inescapable political motives.
Not only did you not do that I can't even conceive of what those might be. Big government win? Defeat of the anti-vaxer moron movement?

IBdaMann wrote:1 - There is every reason to lie to support the NEXT hoax in the chain running up to November
I said what is ITALY's motive. You are conveniently dodging this wrinkle in your conspiracy theory. You seem to acknowledge Italy does not have a motive related to November but trot out the November theory anyway.

IBdaMann wrote:...to prevent the world from associating their abysmal medical care with their socialized medicine.
So did 683 people not die of Coved19 in Italy yesterday? It's all theater? Your theory would seem to imply Italy is winning big with a story that Italian Health Care is Great! Also you conveniently ignored that Italy has better health care grades than the US. Another conspiracy?

IBdaMann wrote:This flu is much weaker than those of previous flu seasons.
On what do you base that statement?


One interesting component to the "HOAX" conspiracy theory is that even though Trump is the president, the Republicans control the Senate, and entire industries are being devastated by this whole process: aerospace, hospitality, entertainment, sports, ....
That all of these great powers are impotent and helpless against some Marxist elite force which includes diverse members like the Italian government, Boris Johnson, and a long list of other conspirators.

Toilet paper? If you had a bag like me you wouldn't need it

Nothing like taking a nice dump at the dinner table. No wiping necessary. The crudeness was for you. I don't have a dinner table.
And like you keep saying, social distancing is working just like my colostomy. Sometimes we just need to accept what diseases can do, right? After all, having a colostomy isn't my ideal of fun and I think with the coronavirus, a lot of people feel the same way about that as well.

And this is what they're saying now;
The United States now leads the world with over 100,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, overtaking China and Italy, and over 1,400 deaths.

p.s., @GFM, if my wood working project works out, it could help to provide electricity to people who don't have a reliable source of power. But it's mostly so I can visit Europe because then we would find out if Harvey is right and I am an expert on ozone in the stratosphere.

p.s.s, and if water has to be trucked in so households have a supply, waste water could be recycled for irrigation, ie., a garden. Then the quality of life could start improving. And yep, I am familiar with such processes as well. It's what Jordan is doing and it's one of the most water poor countries in the world. And with something like that, it's the best way to fight disease.

Depends on how you look at it. My intestines are in wrong and if I get too active it can cause a significant amount of trauma. But since I can't work because of it things are getting better for me. Of course this is because if what I know is correct, it will help the EU and Germany. And I doubt this will help me in the US. I'm simply on the wrong continent. So if I can get to Germany, then I can hopefully receive the surgery I need. For me, that's a little extreme but if it's what I need to do then I'll have to keep working at my project.

This is for fun. Doctors tell me that only radiologists can read an x-ray, MRI, a CT or PET scan.
This means they're not responsible for what a radiologist fails to diagnose. And if a radiologist likes having a job, he'll remember who signs their paycheck. It's kind of like asking a malpractice to say a doctor will lie to avoid a malpractice suit.
Hurt in a car wreck? Doctors will not help lawyers who do not help them. And if I go to Germany to have the problem fixed, Americans doctors will have plausible deniability. They can say that I'm not a doctor. And that is the only thing that matters.

It's been a 'no' for about 10 years now, since his life changing colon cancer surgery. He's been kind of vague, on how reattaching his colon, to his small intestine, disabled him. The surgeon had no choice, but to relocate, since the old site was removed (cancer and surrounding tissue). Obviously, the surgery went well, 10 years cancer free, and functional, physically, anyway...

I don't get the obsessive desire to crap in a bag. Certainly, he hasn't gone 10 years with out evacuating his colon, normally. If there was a medical need to install one, he should have had any trouble getting one. It's not an elective procedure, though, which James refuses to accept.

Confirmed 235,787 +35,897
Deaths 5,764 +1,384
Recovered 10,324 +1,617

I think it was 50,000 cases and 1,000 deaths a week ago. And with the swine flu pandemic of 2009/2010, 12,000 people died.

As a rate of growth? I've been watching these numbers closely but I can only find one day on March 22 where the number of new cases declined from the day before in the US. Otherwise, it appears the number of new cases has always increased from the day before.

This is fascinating to me. With all the unknowns, different approaches to cure/slow, and some ridiculous politics mixed in, this is quite the shitshow of "experts" we've seen lately.

The numbers are still misleading, since more people are getting tested, quicker. They really don't give the total number of people tested. They just give confirmed positive, hospitalized, recovered, and dead. The scary numbers... There doesn't seem to be much interesting in testing people, that would show, if they were already infected, and recovered. It's still cold and flu season, which kills about 30,000/year. Sort of wondering if hospitals are just re-branding all severe respiratory infections, as Covid-19, so they get more government assistance (money).

All valid points. Despite the increased testing, however, the infection rate seems to be going down, according to the CDC data.

are you sure the number of cases should be going up in the spring?

I get it Harvey. You're over 60 and are scared. Right? I am.
In your age group it has a mortality rate over 10%. That means for every 10 people like you, 1 of you will die.
All I can say is stay safe and practice social distancing. It has nothing to do with politics.

When shopping, maintain 6 feet or 2 meters as a safe distance. We might not like you but we'd hate to lose you.

All valid points. Despite the increased testing, however, the infection rate seems to be going down, according to the CDC data.



are you sure the number of cases should be going up in the spring?

I get it Harvey. You're over 60 and are scared. Right? I am.
In your age group it has a mortality rate over 10%. That means for every 10 people like you, 1 of you will die.
All I can say is stay safe and practice social distancing. It has nothing to do with politics.

Still got 13 years until retirement, no underlying health issues. Don't worry about me, I'll survive just fine. Fortunately, I'm well above average height, coughers would need to aim upward... The real key, is to just keep your filthy hands off your face. I haven't really change much of anything. I stay at home more, but have plenty to keep me busy around the house. Weather has been really nice, 90s, and little to no rain. I would like to take the drone down to the lake, but not sure if I'd get away with it. Flew out of the backyard, and around the neighborhood, but no much worth seeing.

You seem really scared of this cold virus for some reason. Sorry, I don't share your concern. Guess you are hiding in your basement, like Joe Biden, with your thousand rolls of toilet paper. I've only got 11 rolls left, maybe I'll get lucky one of these times, and Walmart will have some in stock, during my weekly grocery shopping. Probably good enough to last most of the summer. If not, I'll figure something out. Probably be able to buy some at work, it is a grocery distribution warehouse...

I don't catch colds or viruses. That does give me a 25% increase for the risk of cancer. What I had has a 64% survival rate. I survived.
Someone being hateful about a threat to others is afraid. If you don't like your life, like anyone else it's up to you to change it.

The cancer I had, a 63% survival rate. Doctors wanted to do nothing. And in the future, the medical community might find people like me who can't catch the flu. We could treat Covid19 patients without getting that virus. We might be contagious to others but with no safety gear needed, we could live with the sick.
The cancer I survived. It's not all fun.

As a rate of growth? I've been watching these numbers closely but I can only find one day on March 22 where the number of new cases declined from the day before in the US. Otherwise, it appears the number of new cases has always increased from the day before.

This is fascinating to me. With all the unknowns, different approaches to cure/slow, and some ridiculous politics mixed in, this is quite the shitshow of "experts" we've seen lately.

The link below is the website I've been using. It very detailed with clickable spreadsheet and clickable sources. I can't seem to find any propaganda here
but if anyone finds any, let me know.

Thanks!

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

That site does not have the infection rates. Use the CDC data.


It does have infections/deaths per million population. If they would add one more column and put population density values next to infections per million, I think it might be helpful to see what is going on and where.

Places of interest to me would be Sweden, South Korea, Japan, India, California, and some TRUTHFUL data out of China, which we'll never get.

Some of these places have done things far different than grinding life to a halt, and have come out with similar or even better results than the US.

Always have to be careful of the "stump Trump" efforts. Already talk of his ignorance for not acting soon enough. Ridiculous.


gasguzzler, calling the jet stream the "Norwegian jet stream" is a bigoted statement. -James-

So you're saying if people stay away from each other, it doesn't get as bad. But if people like your friend Harvey who lives around Tampa, it can get bad? They've already been saying that if you live in the middle of no where like Iowa, you're basically safe.
I mean you guys ship corn out butt what goes in? The cob?

It seems like in the last 2 days that in the US there are 35,000 new cases of Covid 19 and 200+ deaths. It might be getting ready to get bad.



It seems that Covid 19 is spiking. These are the numbers I saw online;

Confirmed 235,787 +35,897
Deaths 5,764 +1,384
Recovered 10,324 +1,617

I think it was 50,000 cases and 1,000 deaths a week ago. And with the swine flu pandemic of 2009/2010, 12,000 people died.



And now 2 days later, 40,000 new cases and 2,000 deaths. In 2 weeks it has gone from a few thousand cases to 277,000. It's not showing any signs of slowing down. In another week it might catch up with the swine flu pandemic that lasted from January 2009 to August 2010. Just to give an idea of how severe it is.

Most States are reporting by county. It's easy to see the infection numbers are mostly coming from higher populations counties. No surprise, since the ratio is about the same.

It shows every sign of slowing down, according to the CDC data.
