Yeah, you're an ignorant, hysterical retard who can't even string a coherent sentence together, yet arrogantly acts like some sort of expert while being very quick to question the intelligence of others.

Obviously it's not good that the number has risen, but is the number of new cases what you'd expect, or maybe higher or even lower? Now that the states are reopening - wrongly I think - what do you expect the number of daily deaths to be at in a fortnight and beyond?

I think America will suffer higher post-lockdown rates than other countries but I have no idea what the expected death toll will be in a few weeks time, so I'm curious as to what your predictions are.

As a last question, what do you think the daily death toll would have to reach in order to force another nationwide lockdown?
I don't think it depends on the daily death toll, it depends on the hospital capacity. Right now we have health care workers being furloughed because the hospitals are empty and there's no work to be done.

whats fucking killing me down here is that about half the fuckers out and about are not bothering with masks or any of that shit....................and those most likely to be doing it?

the over 60 crowd..........

stupid FOX watching boomer cunts,Im not wearing this thing for me but YOU

seen a bunch of em get tossed out or denied entry to various places as they stroll up with their no mask asses..................always get bent when tld to fuck off as if people are imposing on them by asking them to be decent fucking citizens
Here in CT even the police and road workers are not wearing masks....people are in denial and just going about their business.

This weekend we supposed to get outdoor seated restaurants opened up, so it will be even more crowds....and I'm sure everyone grilling outside will be drinking and socializing like nothing happened.

Terrible decision, but what would have been a few alternatives?
Utilizing open hospital beds? Many hospitals in the city and even the state we're not near capacity. I don't get how we send sick patients back to nursing home where the death rate is in the 20% range!

My mother is a nurse a nursing home in NJ and they lost 20 out of 100 patients to Covid-19. This could have been avoided if they were treated in ICU beds instead of being sent back to the homes without being OK'd.

No one wants to address other problems in our government like the incompetence of Cuomo and DeBlasio in NY. I would say about 30% of NY deaths are due to local government.
How so ?

really just asking, im not american.

Last I heard Cuomo was being praised.

Read the story. Many seniors were sent away from hospitals to nursing homes where they spread it and increase the mortality rate in seniors. This resulted in thousands of deaths due to mismanagement by the state of NY.

NEW YORK (AP) — More than 4,300 recovering coronavirus patients were sent to New York’s already vulnerable nursing homes under a controversial state directive that was ultimately scrapped amid criticisms it was accelerating the nation’s deadliest outbreaks, according to a count by The Associated Press.

AP compiled its own tally to find out how many COVID-19 patients were discharged from hospitals to nursing homes under the March 25 directive after New York’s Health Department declined to release its internal survey conducted two weeks ago. It says it is still verifying data that was incomplete.


So the order was given, then recalled , but not before thousands were sent to nursing homes.

Yes it´s true. But it was expected, the bigger the country is the bigger the number of people with this shit. Brazil is by far the biggest country in south america..

Thing with hospitals being "not near capacity" is that you can't expect hospital staff, already depleted in PPE supplies and personnel, to deal with full capacity hospitals, in which 90-95% of the patients are COVID (+). I've been on the end of some crazy assignments in my day and I could not imagine having 10 coronavirus patients to look after, or on-call physicians having 80-100 to oversee...

The best that we could have hoped for was to have staff brought in from all over the country to deal with the load, but that never seemed to materialize.

I have been using the same N95 mask for 2 months now. Mind you I only use it every now and then. No need to throw them out lol or send them to be disinfected just store them and let any potential virus on them die naturally lol.

Yes you have to study how Covid lasts on masks and store your mask in a organized matter.

If you go out every day you might want 7 masks, maybe 14 if you wanted to use 2 a day. And you just cycle them in order. That would give your mask 7 days to naturally disinfect.
