We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

I doubt the mortality rate is as high as they say given the fact that they don’t have clear numbers on who is infected, but the news and the threat of news is going to keep the markets depressed until something happens to give investors hope that new negative news won’t fall out of the blue. That’s my $.02 and I certainly could be wrong.
I agree with you and I'm someone who thinks people are a bit hysterical about this and not thinking about how common the typical flu is. It's very possible the death rate isn't as high as reported because people with minor symptoms haven't come forward.

Still, you have a highly contagious disease with no cure, even if there aren't any quarantines people aren't going to be rushing out to jump on planes or go to restaurants or ballgames. Then you think about how easily it could be spread through a factory or distribution center and knock out a chunk of a workforce. If this thing gets going here you'd think there are pretty high odds it's going to put a dent in the economy.

You're an idiot. The media feeds off of people like you. Here's the actual quote. He didn't say the virus is a hoax. He said the democrats politicization of corona virus and his handling of it is their newest hoax.

(Laughter) .They can’t even count. No, they can’t. They can’t count their votes!

One of my people came up to me and said “Mr. President they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia. That didn’t work out too well, they couldn’t do it. They tried the impeachment hoax–that was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything. They tried it over and over. They’ve been doing it since you got in. It’s all turning. They lost, it’s all turning. Think of it, think of it. And this is their new hoax.”

But you know, we did something that’s been pretty amazing. We have fifteen people in this massive country. And because of the fact that we went early, we went early, we coulda had a lot more than that. We’re doing great. Our country is doing so great. We are so unified. We are so unified. (Loud cheers.)

You can’t say others are an idiot when in the same quote he says “we did a good job”. It’s not over. Whether the President did a good job or not is still to be decided.

This is just starting. It’s like a hurricane. Maybe your as prepared as you can be but presidents are judged on how well they handle the aftermath and recovery. And they really get no wide spread kudo’s if it goes well. They just get hammered if it goes bad. It is what it is.

Iowa, literally, wasn’t a counting error.

Just out of curiosity, I went to Amazon and looked at N95 masks to check prices. I had bought 60 of them last year, for various household projects. I probably still have 50 of them. There is some serious price gouging going on. Last fall I paid 21.50 for 20 of them. The same masks on there now are $89.98.

I’m sure they are a Chinese company but Amazon isn’t. Price gouging is illegal even online isn’t it? Or is that a state by state thing or has to be officially declared?

I think this may be more of a silver bullet situation.
