Yeah, from your other paranoid buddy (2020-02-25):
Folks, this coronavirus thing, I want to try to put this in perspective for you. It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump," Limbaugh said.

"You think I’m wrong about this? You think I’m missing it by saying that’s ... Yeah, I’m dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks," he continued.

Limbaugh then pointed to large drops in the stock market in recent days thought to be caused by fears of the coronavirus outbreak, and repeated a debunked conspiracy theory that the disease was a released bioweapon.

"Ninety-eight percent of people who get the coronavirus survive," he said. "It’s a respiratory system virus. It probably is a ChiCom laboratory experiment that is in the process of being weaponized. All superpower nations weaponize bioweapons."

U.S. officials previously told AFP that conspiracy theories about the coronavirus including its alleged origin as a bioweapon were being spread by Russian disinformation sites and troll accounts on social media.

Other conservative figures including Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) have also repeated the conspiracy theory in recent days.

The coronavirus has spread to 29 countries outside of China and there have been more than 30 cases reported in the U.S.
Can you die from a common cold?

Don't know whether your stages count up or down but we are currently in stage 3 with no (known) local active cases in the area except one from outside the region in hospital. They did just open up restaurants to sit-in dining for reduced numbers. I'll leave it to the young people for a while. Masks required. Melbourne still under more strict stage 4. A 2 week average of less than 30 cases a day for a city of 5 million. Curfew and can't travel more than 5 km from home. Royal commission on what went wrong with the hotel quarantine program for returning travelers that kicked off the second wave (don't hire private security guards).

The USA pretty much comes off as a very weak country to the rest of the world.

 

just so you know, that's our superpower 

and we've got reserves!

on another note, are you folks arresting people for posting on fakebook?

Very compelling read:


Harvard’s Chetty Finds Economic Carnage in Wealthiest ZIP Codes

The celebrated economist has built a data tool with a God’s-eye view of the pandemic’s damage—and soaring inequality.



“The recession has essentially ended for high-income individuals. Meanwhile, the bottom half of American workers represented almost 80% of the jobs still missing."

Interesting article on the pandemics impact on one Indianapolis restaurateur.

Inside Ed Rudisell’s Pandemic Nightmare

While his remaining two businesses—Siam Square and The Inferno Room—hang on by a thread, Ed Rudisell tells us about the emotional toll of the last five months, and his fears about the fall for an industry near its breaking point.

What can supporters of local food do today to help save the industry?
There are three things I’m telling people to do right now. One, just wear a mask when you go into a restaurant. Please don’t argue with people over it. We don’t want to wear them either, but let’s do what’s necessary to stop the spread of this virus. Two, go to the places you love because they may not be around much longer if you don’t. And I don’t mean go once every five months. Go in as often as you can because it’s what’s keeping us alive.

The people who wanted to open up rapidly for economic reasons ignored the longer-term economic consequences of the continued pandemic

there may be something similar out there regarding stages and protocol that i'm not aware of

however this is interesting in that "certain meds/treatments" may be effective in particular stages and useless or harmful in others

one thing is clear, early intervention in high risk peeps is key

stopping or reducing viral load asap is a life saver

(that one doc sipping coffee out of a clorox mug made me chuckle)

etc etc etc

(the GOP have so few legitimate ideas that their party is now sustained solely by batshit nonsense and rumor)
 

I had the strange urge to watch Trump's town hall. That lasted for about a minute as I watched him do his word-salad non-response, generously garnished with lies. 

But I have read recaps of that nonsense. And it still blows my mind that he LIED over and over. 

And not just about penny-ante stuff.  He lied about Covid19 ("I think it's going to disappear"), masks ("a lot of people think masks are not good"—waiters, especially, according to Trump), downplaying  the pandemic ("Yeah, well, I didn't downplay it. I, actually, in many ways, I up-played it, in terms of action"), and the economy ("We have a super V; it looks like it's going to be a super V. We're going to have a great economy next year, and I think we're going to have a great economy in the third quarter").


ABC provides the transcript of the meeting here


Bob Woodward's new book quotes former DNI Dan Coats, who perfectly captures Trump's mental incompetence:


The stream of lies and alternative realities that the President promoted recalled a statement attributed to former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats in Woodward's book "Rage" that was published on Tuesday."To him a lie is not a lie. It's just what he thinks. He doesn't know the difference between the truth and a lie," Coats is quoted as saying to former Secretary of Defense James Mattis.


Trump's cabinet should have invoked the 25th Amendment and started proceedings to have him removed from office for mental incompetence. But there are still many people who support him—perhaps because he made it OK to openly hate people like Blacks and Hispanics and because he basically promised to turn back the clock economically and culturally.
