Who here still thinks Covid-19 is not a big deal?

Well then, maybe this China virus thing is over-hyped after all, huh?

Your comment doesn’t change the statistics; over 160K infected, 3K dead with a ~2% mortality rate, all within 2 months, and that’s with us practicing social distancing, shelter in place, etc.

 This bug is going to ultimately have a lower infection numbers and mortality rate than the H1N1.

 

What is wrong with you? Honest?

You think we are practicing social distancing? 

With all respect, I saw it in play for the VERY first time this morning.

I wish it had been true here and frankly it would have been if Trump had made it important instead of doing his hoax tap dance.

He definitely could have set a better tone, but here we are...

It would have been so easy to "rally" people to take all this seriously... 

He just can't do anything substantive, it's all show.

The chronology of this stuff matters.

Exactly back in Jan and Feb and early March they were telling New Yorkers to continue with their every day lives.

I love Trump's showmanship, his  brand building abilities. I admire that he is a master of mass psychology and genius in self promotion.  

But, I require someone of ethics, morals and relative honestly in order to support them. 

Last Monday and Tuesday he put on his big boy pants and I applauded him... I rooted for him. I'd love to have a valid reason to jump on his train. I TRIED to be a Trumpet. I was unable to abandon my principles however. No matter how much I wanted to. I guess we get set in our ways. 

As he has no principles of his own, except "himself", I often wish he had run as a DEmocrat or republican centrist, so I could support him.

You do realize that H1N1 goes back to 1918? 

You do realize that when people refer to H1N1 on this forum, they're talking about the 2009-10 outbreak? Not the Spanish Flu from 1918.

No, of course you don't.

H1N1 had a fatality rate of .02% which is less fatal than the normal flu. It had only infected about 27,000 Americans at this point in 2009. It had only killed 4,000 Americans by November.

It was far less infectious and deadly than COVID-19 will be.

On March 4th was Trump's infamous "hunch" remark.

So you are, again, just making stuff up.

On the same date, March 4th, he also claimed that the flu was worse than COVID-19.

As late as 5 days ago, Trump was saying how he wanted to end the social distancing on Easter.

He has at every turn tried to downplay this and get people to stop isolating.

How and why are people comparing this to a flu? 

That is a logical fallacy from the start.

To downplay it.

Simple as that.

It's a diversionary tactic and what's more is that it's not even remotely true.

I am in NY, I am not a liar. I saw it I know what happened when. 

Offer citations  that support your assertion  and I will say, "wow, I was wrong. Memory is a funny thing."
