Coronavirus | COVID-19 | Global Pandemic | PLEASE KEEP DISCUSSION TO THIS THREAD

Recommended Posts

I would say corona did hurt Trump.

 

During the start of this year I would say he was favoured to win the presidency but now I would lower his chances down to 40%.

 

The only reason why his chances are still high because he's facing off against Grandpa Simpson.

Every day Trump somehow manages to do something even more idiotic than the day before.

 

Its almost impressive. If it didnt mean that more people will probably die than if he would just keep his **** mouth shut.

always keep in mind: killing a virus is, in fact, not that difficult. It's keeping the victim alive during the process where the problems begin ...

Coronavirus pandemic will cause global famine of 'biblical proportions', UN warns.

UN shared this report two days ago, and no one seems to care or take it seriously, they are too occupied with their usual trivial issues. Many of the poorer countries rely on imports of foods from richer countries. Several countries have already banned exports of food to secure the needs of their own population, other countries will follow. UN warns of around 1 billion people will be on the brink of starvation if we don't act soon, using the term "biblical proportions" to emphasize its importance. 

I warned this many days ago. Millions could die due to global economy suspension.

Ironically I watched this episode of Scrubs last night.

I started re-watching this show in the last 2 weeks as Donald Faison (Turk) and Zach Braff (JD) are doing a weekly podcast on it. I do recommend it, they are hilarious, they've already had Bill Lawrence (creator of the show, and husband to Christa Miller who played Jordan) and Sarah Chalke (Elliot) on. I had forgotten how funny this show is, especially if you like absurdist humor.

It might be Doctor Trump's most dangerous advice so far because it is hard to find hydroxychloroquine, but anyone can drink bleach.

Been a bit naughty today.

 

Gave my little MG a run out to go to the big supermarket, only 6 miles away but we took the 50 mile route around the Island coastal road to get there. 

 

Roof down in the sun and a change of scenery did us a power of good.

Trump would have had a better chance of winning facing off against anyone other than Grandpa Simpson.

Literally not what he said. Nothing to do with shutdowns, it's about countries keeping supplies for themselves.

Not sure if you are talking about this article (he point a lot of elements not related to the virus, like a bad year in 2019, locust, flood, war, rain pattern, trades disruption and panic buyer impacting country that rely on food imports, but are they buying more on the intl market because of local disruption on their agriculture because of the shutdowns, quickly become semantic):

https://docs.wfp.org/api/documents/WFP-0000114546/download/

 

But also a lot of elements related to shutdowns:

 

"These countries may face an excruciating trade-off between saving lives or livelihoods or, in a worst-case scenario, saving people from the coronavirus to have them die from hunger," the report said.

 

The new, coronavirus-related factors affecting each region were myriad. "Lockdowns and economic recession are expected to lead to a major loss of income among the working poor,"

 

"The loss of tourism receipts will damage countries such as Ethiopia (and) the collapsing oil prices in lower-income countries like South Sudan will have an impact significantly," he added.

 

The pandemic may well devastate livelihoods and food security, especially in fragile contexts and particularly for the most vulnerable people working in the informal agricultural and nonagricultural sectors. A global recession will majorly disrupt food supply chains

 

If you mean nothing to do with the shutdown in the western world that debatable, NYC maybe, but part of them that lowered their agricultural output and situation like those:

Shutting down the entry of agricultural seasonal workers should depress production in rich country, they should become lower exporter, more aggressive world buyer, it should impact world price.

There are definitely Trump supporters out there who are bat-shit crazy or extremely ignorant. But there's a great many that I would just describe just as very partisan and misinformed, as opposed to uninformed - i.e. they're not extremely ignorant in general, just on matters relating to Trump, for what that's worth.

To add to that you can have extremely well informed and intelligent people believing the earth is 6,000 years old, angels visiting earth and so on.

 

Once it become a team/value/emotional affair, logic take the side, specially if you ever got into a fight about it, if you consider that abortion is a mass murder that will be hard to explain to God when you meet him and is important to you and that you consider Trump is your best shot at changing the courts at all level to stop it, you will be ready to go along a lot of stuff to achieve that, that does not mean at all that you are crazy, ignorant, stupid and so on.

Exactly. Is it hard to understand that (long term) lockdowns will harm the food supply chains in many parts of the world. Less supply on one side (the global marine industry basically stopped working). Less income on the other side because of unemployment. The poor people in poor countries with mass population like Africa, India, Bangladesh etc will be hurt the most. People in the West surely need not to worry about famine or malnutrition...
