Not a milestone any country wants. Looks like your earlier prediction of 250K deaths by end of Oct looks likely to be reached if not exceeded.

Worrying thing is in the last week the decline in cases has plateaued and deaths have risen a little over a 7 day average according to Worldometer? Is this as low as it will go? I hope not and cases and deaths go back to declining this week and this isn't the best America can do.

UK right now is having a real issue with testing, some people in my city are being asked to travel to Wales for testing, literally being asked to travel to another country to get tested for Covid because the main testing centre has closed as it was at the football stadium and apparently watching the local team play football is more important than Covid, even though you can't even go watch them play, moronic. NHS staff are being forced to stay in isolation when they could be Covid free and back to work.

So UK are fucking things up badly as well. Without proper testing we can't track the virus and lock down regional areas fast enough to stop it spreading to other areas. Another national lockdown will be inevitable unless we somehow increased testing capacity.
I don't think it's likely to decline.


Bars are starting to reopen either willingly or by conservative judges.

Schools have been open in most places for about two weeks.


That will increase it.

Finally you have fall...which will likely increase the intensity of infection.

The whole point of the story was that a Chinese virologist claimed that the disease was in fact created in a Wuhan lab and releases intentionally. Seems like a story worth speaking about on its own without comparing one to the other
well,thats even dumber

but I think the point is a bit more obvious

everyone has,RIGHTFULLY,condemned the chinese for being less than open and honest about this....................while our own orange Jesus was busy being less than open and honest

he is,IMO,responsible for tens of thousands of american deaths by through his lies and lack of response

he has further fucked it up by withdrawing from the WHO and trying to blame the CDC

this shit should be causing riots in the streets

There is a difference between acting irresponsibly in not being competent enough to handle a health crisis, and intentionally causing a worldwide health crisis. That distinction is the size of a fucking ocean, with regards to culpability.

Trump is a dunce and should be allowed near government office. That is hardly the point of that story though.

I dont think the chinese CAUSED anything

they got caught by a new virus and tried to downplay it and then took measures about a billion times more strict than we could even consider

their response was,in fact,BETTER than trumps

they admitted the problem within a couple of weeks

trump pretended it wasnt a problem FOR MONTHS

he is STILL downplaying it and not wearing a mask in public and doing all he can to ensure we dont have any sort of rational,national plan

yeah,the chinese dropped the ball.......................trump was handed the same ball and he tossed it into the fucking dumpster and set the shit on fire while assuring everyone there was no ball,and if there was it was chinese and therefore OBAMAGATE

ffs,they DROPPED THE IDEA for a national response because,when it began,it was ONLY BLUE STATES that were dying..................

how that ALONE isnt a massive fucking national scandal I dont know............

HE LET PEOPLE DIE for what he saw as political gain

he should be locked the fuck up for that alone .........................

That isn't my point, Goat. You're always looking to flip and point. I'm talking about the specific story thst that meme was referencing. Dr Li-Meng Yan came out and said that they did it. She's a Chinese virologist and whistle-blower. She might be full of shit, but that seems to be the thing to discuss with regards to that.

Drawing an equivalency between her actual allegations(if true) and Trump's incompetence is childish.

what makes you think the meme is talking about that one story?

its a generalization about government lies as far as I can tell

fox was all over china for lying [again,rightfully so] but is dead silent on trump lying

there is nothing there about the conspiracy theory 'its from a lab' thing in the meme or am I missing something?

The date that it was posted and the headline were, I'm relatively sure we're from that segment.

That it broke out of a lab isn't new. Confirmation that that happened, and that it was intentional are.

YES. Goat...there's nothing new, surprising, funny, or even exclusive to any of this.

If this treaty with Israel had been signed under the Obama administration, MSNBC and even CNN would be calling for a second nobel peace prize. Not because they believe it, but because that's what their viewers want!

Fox blaming China and forgiving Trump? No wayyyyy! I've seen clips of Fox pushing back on Trump for the lies that were revealed by Woodward, but they are ultimately what they are.

Fox is the worst, but mainstream 24 hour news is bullshit by necessity. The bigger story is whether the world was infected with a deadly virus purposefully, and if so... what's the greater implication? Can anything realistically even be done about it?
