Seems to me one of the major issues here is that the US, as a whole, hasn't done a very good job of containing this. However, we're lucky that we're such a spread out nation. However, once you get to more crowded metros like NYC, it all goes to hell.

 

You'll have a hard time convincing Americans in the near term that expanded mass transit is a good idea.  I'm sure the NYC subway has become a great way to transmit the virus.

This is just saber-rattling bullshit to try to distract from what an utter failure he is, along with the Maduro charges from earlier.

From Latin America:

 

As Latin America Shuts Down to Fight Virus, Brazil and Mexico Are Holdouts

Quote

Most leaders in Latin America reacted to the arrival of the coronavirus in the region with speed and severity: Borders were shut. Flights were halted. Soldiers roamed deserted streets enforcing quarantines, and medical professionals braced for an onslaught of patients by building field hospitals.

 

But the presidents of Brazil and Mexico, who govern more than half of Latin America’s population — Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil and, to a lesser degree, his Mexican counterpart, Andrés Manuel López Obrador — have remained strikingly dismissive. They’ve scoffed at calls to shut down business and sharply limit public transportation, calling such measures far more devastating to people’s welfare than the virus.

 

Mexican governor prompts outrage with claim poor are immune to coronavirus

Quote

A Mexican state governor has prompted incredulity and outrage by claiming that poor people are immune to Covid-19, as the government attempts to promote physical distancing and cancels non-essential services. Miguel Barbosa, the governor of Puebla, was apparently commenting on reports that a significant proportion of Mexico’s coronavirus cases is made up of wealthy people who had travelled abroad.

 

Brazil’s governors rise up against Bolsonaro’s outbreak stance

Quote

Brazil’s governors are defying President Jair Bolsonaro over his call to reopen schools and businesses, dismissing his argument that the “cure” of widespread shutdowns to contain the spread of the new coronavirus is worse than the disease.

AMLO is such a fucking moron. Mexico can't catch a break.

 

Meanwhile, Nayib Bukele is killing it out there in PupusaLand.

They do it to themselves, just like Americans did Trump to themselves.

So my girlfriend’s cousin just died of pneumonia and they think it’s covid-19 but haven’t gotten the test results yet. He was a male in his 30s with history respiratory issues. :(

Update: the test results came back and he did have Covid-19 :/

Apparently Dr. Acton in Ohio didn't get Trump's memo.

 

https://www.wcpo.com/news/government/state-government/ohio-state-government-news/live-dewine-acton-hold-coronavirus-briefing-on-what-would-have-been-opening-day

 

And a surge is still coming, Acton said. An epidemiological model created by the Ohio State University’s Infectious Diseases Institute predicts that by late April, a socially distanced Ohio could still see as many as 6,000-8,000 newly diagnosed cases each day.

But each provision that has kept Ohioans inside their homes has pushed the surge back and decreased the likelihood that tens of thousands of patients will find themselves clamoring for the same hospital beds.

“We have, through our collective work here in Ohio, decreased that impact on our healthcare system from anywhere from 50-70%,” Acton said.
