    Does anyone have a direct quote from the token "family values" member of the Trump Administration and current head of the Covid-19 task force, Mike Pence, about ending the quarantine early to "save" the economy?

    This administration has done the ****ing impossible - I'm now longing for the days of George W. Bush.

    Ha, Trump is deluded like 40% of USA . It just started in USA. By Easter you guys will have more cases and more deaths than any other country in the world.

    They will certainly win the developed world sweep stakes. India or Brazil or somewhere in Africa might take the overall crown tho.

    This ain't going to magically get better in 2.5 weeks. You'll see some states improve while others will get worse.

    Governors will ultimately decide what's best for them anyway. Telling people to do whatever they want for Easter means we'll see a huge increase at the end of April and prolong this madness.

    As someone not from the US and with no dog in your internal political fights, I am baffled by the response of Trump and even more baffled there are people defending his actions. WTF is happening?

    It looks like Trump's doing pretty well. Especially for how unprecedented this pandemic is. I have no doubt that Biden or Sanders would have been a complete disaster during this crisis.

    I'm curious:

    You in Australia?

    When did the 6 month shut down start and when does it end?

    According to Fox News, the main street media completely unnecessarily created panic by blowing COVID 19 out of proportion.

    According to Fox News, the main street media completely dismissed and underplayed the risks of COVID 19

    Got it.

    You realize the US just in the beginning of the curve, right? There is no overloading of the hospitals... yet. NY is projecting to hit the peak in 2-3 weeks. Then others will follow. Do you think this just will magically pass you by? Especially if you relax the measures for Easter... cuz... you know... people need to go to church for Easter and all... This is ludicrous.

    Anything not stupid.

    Just read a teleprompter from what non-stupid Governors are saying.

    Question is what can we do regarding public policy: make safer cars, lower speed limits, driver training, revoke licenses.

    There is no decision point where one person driving or not driving can overwhelm a system and cause deaths to others, as will be happening in our hospitals over the next month.

    So it is apples and oranges

    I did not say any of that BS. This is unprecedented. We have 5x the population of Italy so the numbers must take that into consideration. The President hopes the country can get moving again by Easter and will consult his medical consultants to see what can be done.

    I would also add that New York has been a disaster with people partying in the streets as recently as last week and the spread of the disease there will be their own fault.

    I think you have a units problem 10 per capita would be ~4 billion respirators and one for every citizen with nine left over.

    Per capita is measurement meaning per 100 000 people. You have 35 respirators per 100000 people.

    Thanks for clarifying. FYI, per capita is defined as "per person"

    Thanks... my bad on the confusion. I'm looking at different sources calling it different ways. I meant 35 per 100000.
