This model says the US deaths peaked on Friday. We'll see.

https://covid19.healthdata.org/italy

It also says Italy was supposed to be at 300+,200+ and 200+ the past three days, when in reality they've been 600+, 400+ and 500+ (so far today). So the steep drop off that they were predicting from Italy is not happening. They're even exceeding the max of the predicted range.

Obviously if so many people stay home we flatten the curve but the issue is that during this time the federal government was supposed to be getting its act together so that we can prevent more people from getting sick (ramping up testing, tracing, policies on isolating people) and when in the future more people get sick we are not overwhelmed ...also develop a national strategy for reopening and even coordinate things on a global scale....this was why we have been doing all this mitigation

Does anyone in their right minds think this has and is happening?

They haven't asked me to work on anything of that nature, so I have my doubts.

The answer is no yet there are a lot of people who think the administration is doing a wonderful job.

Number of new cases has been steadily around 30K for the past seven days (ranging from 25 K to 35K). I think that's much more a function of number of people being tested than number of people actually sick.

bingo.  and we aren't testing as much as we should be.

a lot of people are thinking that, A LOT.  you wouldn't believe the number of people who think this administration is doing the best job possible, the best in the history of this country.  in fact, i like to use a word  - it's just a word, but a special word - called "unprecedented."  such a beautiful, powerful word, and i think i'm the first - maybe i'm the first, probably, i don't know - the first to use this word to describe our amazing response.  just tremendous.

A LOT think this...which is sad

23% think it was made in a lab...where are they getting their information from
Nearly 30% in the US believe a coronavirus theory that's almost certainly not true

Take the conspiracy that 5G networks are somehow linked to the coronavirus. It started as a fringe theory among New Agers and QAnon followers. Soon, it ended up on celebrities' Instagram accounts, and Twitter published at least two "moments" debunking it.

It's so hard to read all this bullshit. I hate being informed sometimes.

Tax change in coronavirus package overwhelmingly benefits millionaires, congressional body finds

The vote on this was 96-0. Was Bernie absent or did he vote YES?

tax change was a minor part of the package.  was someone supposed to sink the whole thing because of one bad section?

Wyoming had their first death. So now they're at 275 cases with one death.
