    It is. The response in New York should be different in Wyoming. In Wyoming, for example, you will probably see more mule deer than people.

    Response? You need to be able to test to have a response.

And not forcing a Federal stay at home ban on all states using medical aide as a lever to stop the spread as quickly as we can is doing well? We could have reached the peak earlier and be on the other side with the numbefr of cases and deaths diminishing, but here we are and the president says they are doing well. I do not think so, do you?
    Half the cases and deaths are in blue state NY.
    Ask yourself why that is.

    On March 10th, less than a month ago...NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio discusses the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the city and says the city cannot shut down due to undue fear.

    Shelter in place order came too late for a city with a crowded demographic such as NY. Plus, enforcement of the order is sorely lacking. Today, Gov Cuomo, showed huge numbers of people ignoring stay at home orders and walking about Union Station and various parks throughout the city.
    "My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate” ~ February 25, 2020 ~
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” said the former vice president. “All men and women created by the you know, you know the thing.”

    Maybe if Trump had not told the entire country that there were ony 15 cases and soon there would be none, more might have been done right away don't you think? Maybe if at the beginning Fox News would have reported how serious the virus was instead of backing Trump's idea that it was all about the Dems trying to hurt trump's reelection things might have gotten started to mitigate the virus sooner don't you think. We now know that Trump had been told as early as in December that the virus could be serious and planning might have gotten started soonere don't you think? You can excuse Trump as much as you want as a True Trumpster will, but it will not change the history of this virus and how Trump's reacation slowed the process and lead to what his happening now in our country.

    A lot of the posters on this forum most likely suffer from a mild case of autism. They only see complex issues like this in a black and white perspective. They simply cannot comprehend this issue so automatically blame Trump for everything in their life.

    For many, the enemy is in their head.

    During that time, Washington and California did not issue a stay-in order. Washington is a liberal state. It was the first state hit hard by covid-19. The governor didn't issue a stay in order until Mid-March.

    If you are going to Trump/Foxnews didn't take this disease seriously enough, then are omitting that the majority of this country, elected officials (Democrat and Republicans) and the majority of the world didn't take it serious enough.

    This Monday morning quarterbacking is really getting old.

    People like Trump are why it's a terrible idea to ever let people grade themselves.

    Again, you have to look at this from a STATE-STATE LEVEL, not a national level. Almost half of these deaths are coming from New York. Are you going to hold accountable the governor of New York? The Mayor? Andrew Cuomo seems more concerned going on CNN talking to his brother or wearing nipple rings.

    Washington state, for example, has seen a curve. They used to be #1 in COVID-19 cases, now they have dropped to #10. California and Texas are bigger states than New York yet haven't gone past $1k deaths.

    I think President Trump has done a great job given the circumstances.

    I don't take responsibility at all
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.
