In your opinion.

 

Let's not make this a thread about a talentless TV host.

 

Anyway. The latest news from UK seems to be suggesting that more strict measures will be enforced very soon.

His rant wouldn't have been posted here if most people didnt occasionally agree with him

Piers Morgan is a criminal, raging bigot and attention seeking charlatan. He is never right about anything. Let’s not forget how he (still) famously claims that Madonna was banned from his CNN show from day one until the end, even though her manager Guy Oseary literally released correspondence from Piers and his producers begging him to ask her to go on the show. He’s pretty much the “journalist“ equivalent of Trump.

I really couldn't give a fuck about Madonna

And if we still haven't stopped the virus at the point of months of shutdown (because all data points to this being a virus that inevitably comes back in waves), now we have a pandemic AND depression to contend with. No economy is going to support continual periods of shutdown without cracking eventually. We need to focus on how to get those who aren't high risk back to work, while still protecting the elderly/immune compromised as much as possible. 

The problem is that the current protective measures are all half assed.

 

How can you possibly expect this to be contained in a couple of weeks when we lacked testing for months, lack the amount of hospital beds necessary, lack ventilators, and (society as a whole) lack the ability to follow the inconsistent guidelines in place today? 

 

It's hilarious that anyone thinks we will be able to resume normal life within a month. Even funnier that people pushing for this idea aren't considering how that would destroy all of our (half-assed) mitigation efforts so far.

Keep in mind that Wuhan's lockdown was a real lockdown, it started on 23 January and has just been lifted.

 

 

Two months is the best case scenario for all countries with community spread (including the US and most of Europe) but in practice with imperfect shutdowns, more time will be needed. And even in Wuhan the virus is still circulating due to asymptotic carriers:

This copy-paste doesn’t change the fact that Trump spent months denying the impending pandemic, and then said directly into a camera that the entire pandemic was “the Democrat’s new hoax”. Or the fact that the virus was already here by January 31.

Okay, this bothers me, b/c the original tweeter already said she was wrong about what Trump said and took it back...and only 25 people Retweeted her admission...Trump never said Corona was a hoax - he said the democrat's criticism of his admin's response to the outbreak (which included the Chinese travel ban) was "the new hoax" (aka, the new "gotcha" story)...

 

Snopes take...https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-coronavirus-rally-remark/

 

What's True

During a Feb. 28, 2020, campaign rally in South Carolina, President Donald Trump likened the Democrats' criticism of his administration's response to the new coronavirus outbreak to their efforts to impeach him, saying "this is their new hoax." During the speech he also seemed to downplay the severity of the outbreak, comparing it to the common flu.

What's False

Despite creating some confusion with his remarks, Trump did not call the coronavirus itself a hoax.

 

So, let's stop re-posting the lies.  Trump does enough boneheaded stuff to not need to make any up...it just takes away any credibility the press and folks will have when they post the true stuff he does...I mean, focus on his downplaying severity, not the "hoax" untrue stuff...

The US administration was the first western state to ban travels from China as far as 31 Jan 2020, in contradiction with the recommendations of the World Health Organization. Without those measures, the situation would've been far worse. But or course many people will just ignore all this, and still push the same narrative dictated by their own preconceived ideas.

Is that true, Italie I thought was the first ?

https://www.aerospace-technology.com/news/italy-israel-ban-flights-china/

 

While the US had only restriction by that time, not yet a ban:

https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-k-reports-first-coronavirus-cases-as-china-allies-limit-ties-11580467046

 

Restriction of the sort started in many place before that date;

https://www.vox.com/2020/1/23/21078325/wuhan-china-coronavirus-travel-ban

 

Quote

(Also notice how the media is calling it "the China virus", or "the Wuhan virus", but as soon as the US president called it like that, the media did a 180 and claimed it's "racist")

Come-on, you cannot compare how people call a yet to be known and named by the scientifics virus and present pretty much mostly in a place in the world, with how people do it after the fact.
