U.S. Health Workers Responding to Coronavirus Lacked Training and Protective Gear

Anyone who thought "electing Trump won't kill anyone" are very close to being wrong.  The administration overrode the CDC's explicit instructions not to bring Americans home from Japan...and we now have the virus mysteriously appearing in someone without known contact linkage within 10 miles of the AFBase where the cruise line folks are in quarantine.

Worldwide flu typically kills 290,000 to 600,000 annually. COVID-19 is just getting warmed up but some back-of-the-envelope math I did last night (assuming some wildly unpredictable numbers but taking the most conservative of each) says it is likely to double that.
 
Swine lasted over a year and infected up to 20% of the population, but the mortality rate was much lower....Only about 1/2 million, or less than. 10%

Good job Pencey!
Mike Pence was criticized for his handling of Indiana’s HIV outbreak. He will lead the U.S. coronavirus response.

Yeah, it's nothing to sneeze at. Get it? Flu? Sneeze? See what I did there?

Apparently the Spanish Flu (1918) killed somewhere upwards of 50 million, with some estimates as high as 100 million. Point of origin is still disputed, but 'Spanish' is a misnomer regardless. What is NOT disputed is the flu's spread was aided by secrecy imposed due the war. Woodrow Wilson has been singled out for his iron-fisted control of the media and its effect on the spread of the virus. What goes around...

  Yes, I think most of the nations engaged in WWI censored reports about victims of the 1918 flu in their countries (to keep up "morale" or some such).  Spain was not at war and reported their cases, so I guess people just attached their name to it.

Single digit death tolls don't do it for us anymore. Unless it's in a church or school, you need at least a dozen (to give a little margin for ambiguity about the shooter) to bump the news cycle. 

 
Sadly true.

Still, the virus has hit populated areas with hundreds of millions  of people. 30 years ago this would be buried in the news. A risk? Absolutely, but the optics may be making it seem worse than it is. 

 
Agree 100%.  There are 5 dead in a mass shooting yesterday, and it's in the "other news" section of the NYTimes already.

he didn't do enough or he could have done something different

it seems that most of the news and commentary is divisive yammering

whatever it takes to get ratings...
 
No, there's no way that would happen.  I think that mostly everyone has too much class to make this part of the political game.{#Eek}
