"Due to a nonexistent National directive, to meet the virus head on, which has not been provided by trump...no leadership, no morals, no clue!"
Well said sir!!!
Who on the this earth, would believe anything medical by “doctor” trump!
And at this point, what percentages can be considered accurate, excluding known numbers presented here, when we have only tested approximately 10% to 15% of the population...we still need more testing, not trump’s assumptions and guesses. How many “actual” cases are out there...we don’t know...and why?
Due to a nonexistent National directive, to meet the virus head on, which has not been provided by trump...no leadership, no morals, no clue!
KISS: People who are known to have Covid-19 in US = 2, 898, 000 (rounded)
Of that number 130,000 have died. which is 4.5% of cases are lethal.
The number of cases continues to grow at 50K+ / day.
The RW and donald seem to want to totally forget that the number is not the bigger issue, it is the healthcare system that is being overwhelmed and that makes the entire nation vulnerable to any other sort of vector that would require medical treatment. (remember when the idea of the shutdown was all about flattening the curve?)
Apparently, the RW doesn't want to acknowledge what anyone in healthcare already know about this sort of situational stress, when ambulances sit in ER bays because there is no room for patients in any local hospital. That is what is being seen in parts of South Texas. Houston is sending "less serious' patients out and South Texas hospitals are sending 'more serious" patients to large cities.
All things are relative.
Most people who have had the flu consider it to be a totally wretched experience marked by considerable pain and discomfort. That said, here's how Covid19 compares to the flu.
20% of Covid19 victims require hospitalization.
1% of influenza victims require hospitalization.
5.4% of Covid19 victims DIE
0.1% of influenza victims DIE.
So the disaster that should be rechristened tRumpvid20 in honor of Toad's responsibility for its spread in America is TWENTY TIMES as likely to require hospitalization at a cost of thousands of dollars for each victim, and FIFTY-FOUR TIMES AS DEADLY as the flu.
But Toad is responsible, so his worshipers have been told to repeat meaningless statistics along with totally misleading narratives to divert attention from the FACT tRump's inability to lead, manage and plan is going to kill more Americans BY THE END OF SUMMER than Hitler's Wehrmacht did in WWII.
80% (2.4 million) of all covid cases (3 million) require no medical attention, so 20% of those infected is 600K needing medical attention... we'll call that serious. Approximately 65% of those who have the virus don't even know it, so that's about (2 million million) Of course if you don't know you have it, how do we know they have it? Medical math = guess-timate. That the subjective part. I use rounded up numbers for the math challenged.
2.4 mil + 2 million = 4.4 million
So about 87% of those who have covid-19 in the US, it's not serious. You're right it's not 99%.
I've posted the links about 5x now.
Libs are nuttier than squirrel poop
I just saw this on Twitter by an ER Dr. It's truly ignorant and negligent to spread the message that this virus is in any way benign.
Phillip ---this is how T RUMP gets away with lies and creating chaos and hate. He's supported by the same soul-less excuses for human beings.
What Senate Republicans BLOCKED last week: ( Submitted by Chuck Schumer) today
—Funding for COVID testing & tracing
—Protections for workers
—Protections for Dreamers
—Resources for elections
—Resources for schools & nursing homes
—Resources for state & local governments & tribes
Quick tutorial for Toad Worshipers who dropped out in 3d grade and missed the 4th grade math skill your ToadPOTUS lacks:
To find out what percent of the total a number is, divide the number by the total. So if your have 10 things in a group of 100, the things are (10/100=) .10. Then to convert the decimal into a percent, move the decimal place two spaces to the RIGHT, and 0.10 becomes 10%.
So in the case of Covid19/tRump20, the mortality rate (how often a person who gets the disease is going to DIE) we divide the number of deaths (130,000) by the number of cases (2,400,000) so (130,000/2,400,000=) 0.054, move the decimal 2 places to the right = 5.4%
Now 5.4 is MUCH larger than 1, so your Toad is a YUGE LIAR and his lies are killing off Seniors at a frantic pace and his leadership(sic) will kill more Americans by the end of the summer than Hitler killed with his Wehrmacht during WWII.
If you don't test, you don't have any cases.
If we stop testing right now, we'd have very few cases, if any, but we do.
How can the Republican Party back a president who would make so inane a statement?
Simple - Trump gives Republicans all they want in a President - Praise for Nazis and White Supremacists, maximum pain and suffering inflected on poor non-whites, misogynistic war on Women's Rights, and a non-functioning Government where even the Justice Department is devoted to denying Republican crimes.
It's not just tRump - its the entire Republican Party that must be removed from office! Without people who agree with his behavior, tRump could do no harm, but WITH the unwavering support of the GOP, he is destroying Democracy and Freedom and turning power over to the Corporate Oligarchs who run the Republican Party.
