We will reach a Million confirmed cases world wide by Easter! ...Honestly, I believe we already reached 1 million! China already had between 300,000 and 450,000 cases. They only reported 82,000.

I have talked with a lot of liberals on face book about those numbers.

They are apparently irrelevant, and it is also stupid to even bring those numbers up because: We have no immunity to the Corona Virus, and it's a worse disease than the seasonal FLU. ....So, Steve. Don't bring it up any more because that is just stupid, and not nearly as bad as Corona Virus. OK?

We don't have immunity to influenza EITHER .. unless you had it before or got a shot. There are differences .. CV19 is more a respiratory attacker and more contagious .. but it's not sane or safe to assume it's the only killer out there .. or even among the biggest.

A couple of things are going on to make the number go up, first they are just now starting to test as you test more you find more positives that were there before you just didn’t know it. They still are really really short testing kits so only, a small percent get tested, Many potentially have it but dont qualify for the test and get sent home to quarantine at home. And then it is spreading. My sister said they are really short on masks and other items and it’s far from peaking yet.

50,000 people died from Pnumonia last year in USA. I can't recall any media source telling the public about it last year.


Overall, I think the big thing they are trying to avoid is overloading the hospital system. ...And they sunk the economy in the tanker, and encouraged the public to be germophobes in order to do

That's a primary reason .. staffing, supplies, etc. are guesstimated based on what is known .. and that includes estimated flu numbers. CV19 just adds on top of that and that's where the worries begin.

That's because more people are being tested. More test equals more positive results. China lies so much you can't trust there numbers.

Of course, but that's not the most important number - the "percentage" of positives is what's important.

Yesterday in Florida, 9.2% of all people tested were positive. Today, 9.6% of all people tested were positive. This means the number of people who potentially can get sick per 100 people is increasing. This is not good, and shows we have not peaked yet - at least in Florida.

I don't think we've peaked anywhere yet .. and based on how things came in, WV will be where it peaks last (sorry Chris).

I was checking out the current stats in my County and State. 16 deaths so far. Nobody under 36 has died in Oklahoma. 11 deaths over 65. While I fall into the over 65 category, I’m not the least bit frightened. Only 12 cases in the county where I live, but I go to Oklahoma county a lot, and there are ten times that many cases there. The first case in Oklahoma was in Tulsa, but they’ve had only half as many cases as Oklahoma City.

The MSM is reporting that hospitals are being overrun. It’s NOT TRUE. Of the 429 cases in Oklahoma, only 120 have been hospitalized state wide. While 44 of the 77 counties in the state have at least one case, only 10 have more than 4 cases. There are zero hospitals that are overwhelmed. Some say the worst is yet to come. What happens if it isn’t? Maybe it’s true for NY, but I’m seeing people in LA saying it has been a big DUD so far.

It’s coming you know everything take time getting to the middle of the country. And the whole stay at home request was Instituted to slow down the spread to avoid overrunning the hospitals at one time. This was instituted in numerous countries. But supplies are already running low, medical personnel are getting infected and put into quarantine and there aren’t enough testing kits. At is in NY, the amount of people coming in each day is increasing. That comes from not the internet but talking to someone in the medical office. The WH just said social distance rules have been extended all the way to the end of April.

You are comparing apples to oranges. Oklahoma has an average population density of 57 people/square mile. Certainly it has areas with a higher density than that, but nothing comes close to the 70K people/square mile of Manhattan. Ever try to do "Social Distancing" on the NYC Subway below 59th Street ??

Believe it or not they are doing it. The subways and LIRR are relatively empty, they are closing off streets to traffic.i just checked on my godmother most are staying home most of the time. But you’re right on a regular day in NYC it’s usually Crowded as hell in mid town especially with tourists always looking up. I’m like it’s just a tall building. Not that way not.

Years ago I've got my son and his new wife on a day trip in Manhattan. We walk out the south end of Central Park, I'd like to take them to lunch at the Carnegie Deli. I can't remember exactly where it is, but I know it's around the corner from Carnegie Hall. So, I ask the first policeman I see "How do you get to Carnegie Hall"? He says "With a lot of practice"!

Not trying to compare. Just saying the nation-wide panic might be unwarranted, exactly for the reasons you cite.😊

What makes COVID-19 different is the speed at which it travels. It is that fact alone that creates concern for our capacity to respond. Take Italy for example, 10,000 patients with flu complications between October and March is not unmanageable. 10,000 patients in just 12 weeks can easily overwhelm the health facilities.

The trouble with all these numbers is "spin" that is being applied. A positive test means nothing if you never get sick because it's the symptoms that produce conditions best suited to pass on the virus. That's why people with no symptoms are not being tested. There is a distinction between testing positive for exposure versus testing positive for the illness. Exposure and illness are not mutually inclusive.

Many in the press also continue to refer to this as a "disease" which is not accurate. Cancer, Alzheimer's, etc. are diseases. Covid-19 is a flu virus.

I think the only real benefit to our current shutdown is the possibility that this virus has already been making it's way around the country since last October and was largely ignored, as we spent all our public energy on political in-fighting instead of the public welfare. If that were the case then the majority of us who are younger, healthy, and going to work every day would already have been exposed. Should we get sick we would experience Covid-19 as only a mild cold or flu and write it off without a 2nd thought. It's not until we carry it home to incubate in our elderly or more vulnerable extended family that it explodes on the medical scene.

I think every politician at every level of government from mayors to Senators has so over-invested themselves in this "pandemic" and the trauma invoked upon our population - that even if the threat were to evaporate overnight they would continue on a Don-Quixote quest for ever increasing numbers to justify their draconian response. The corona-virus accounts for more free political air time than anything I can remember in recent history. I'm not sure what's worse: Covid-19 or the sickening slew of politicians scrambling for a relevant position in the media frenzy.

A person can be A symptomatic and have the virus and spreed it without even knowing it or have any symptoms.
