    So, which country is this from exactly? Is this left or right wing media? Who is that in the picture again? Is this a report about how to wear protective equipment correctly?

    Basically, another fail - but hey, you got your first reply in. Congrats on being the first failure on this thread too.

    Trump is responsible for downplaying this virus creating a monster of an epidemic in this country, but it's Fox News that's the real culprit. If Fox News didn't continue to bolster up Trump's plan to play this down, more people would be better informed and there would be less spreading of this virus.

    I have heard some really ghastly things about this specific strain of corona. One medical expert said its found to get into the interstitial spaces in the lungs with a material that's almost 'glass-like' was his description. Others have said that on x-ray it looks like diffused gray, circular areas, somewhat 'cloud-like' in appearance. It doesn't look like anything that anyone has ever seen in their medical careers. The most stunning thing about 'novel-coronavirus' is its aggressiveness and ease of transmission.

    One week ago the U.S. reported 60 deaths from coronavirus and today, just one week later that number 323 deaths. If the spread of this virus continues on the upward trend, those numbers will double themselves weekly. If it's 646 next week then in 8 weeks we could be looking at a death toll of around 160,000 dead in 8 weeks.

    We all have a good idea what will happen soon, don't we. Instead of thread after thread "Trump did...." we will see thread after thread reading " Jill Biden did..."

    You're absolutely right. If Trump had simply locked down the nation back in early January, demanded that everyone stay at home and appointed a national pandemic task force lead by Sanjay Gupta the whole of the nation would be celebrating him as a hero today. There is no way they would have every said anything like "Trump is only doing this to kill off the Democrat primaries!" or "Trump is doing this because he's going to refuse to leave office once we beat him in November" or "Trump hates the Constitution and is planning to lock us all in internment camps". No way any of that would have happened.

    The President has stated that he knew all along that this was going to be a pandemic. So if we are to take him at his word then why in February did he not convene a task force to start work on what potential barriers there would be to providing medical care, or alert private industry that there is a high potential for accelerated use of supplies and to start a stockpile, or start a coordination effort with States and localities to have in place standards and uniform practices for dealing with the infection, or beginning the mobilization of resources to be able to arrive at hot spots as quickly as possible.

    Things like that would be a no brainer to someone who knew all along that it was going to be a pandemic and had the power and authority to do something about it.

    Wouldn't we all agree on that?

    Except that an actual lockdown for a month would slam the brakes on the spread of the virus and have given us a month to catch up.

    At that point we could have resumed much of our lives because we would be able to do containment. Surveillance testing, targeted quarantined of individuals rather than cities. I've already been out of work for over two weeks. Two more wouldn't be that hard to take.

    Especially when it would mean being far more in control of the situation. And much closer to getting back to normal.

    Let me ask you a question...do you believe that Trump had knowledge about this pandemic, knew how it would spread, was advised by experts about the potential for global devastation and then sat on that information for his own purposes? Do you believe that all those people who advised him and ALSO knew about what we'd bee experiencing today also kept their mouths shut to please Trump? Do you believe that none of the senators in the Democrat debates had any idea that this was a possibility? Do you believe that nobody in the media knew that this would be a possibility? Do you really believe that this whole thing stems from Trump and Trump alone? How many freaking Democratic debates did we have between January 1st and February 19th? How many questions were askd of the candidates about this virus and how they would deal with it?

    This whole "It's all Trump's fault all day long and anybody else would have been a million times better" is just plain crap.

    The President stated himself with his own words that he always knew that this was going to be a pandemic. Should we take him at his word?

    I do not blame the President for the existence of the virus, but I do ask that if he knew all along that it was going to be a pandemic... something that he said... then why did he sit on his hands when someone who always knew would have been preparing for the coming pandemic?

    There were a ton of things that he could have been doing to make the response less confusing and quicker than it was.

    After all.... he always knew it was going to be a pandemic.
