They're at 26,600 or so, but they use the metric system over there so they're getting closer than you'd think.

Considering Trump has done innumerable things to exacerbate the pandemic, I don't think this one really holds a candle to him.

No one on the planet is likely to Fark up a pandemic response as badly as Trump. Most of the world as well as this country will likely remember this epidemic as the Trump Virus, because he will by far be responsible for more deaths than anyone else.

Burned? Holy shiat what a waste.

Now would be a great time to venture some capital into an N95 mask recycling company. That is, if we have enough capital venturlators, or did Trump pirate them all?

Per capita numbers are a better comparison.
They have about half the confirmed cases (from less than half the number of tests per capita, ouch), but about 100 more deaths per 100k population.

So it kind of looks like they're not actually doing any better, since their testing has been balls and they're losing more people.

In raw new cases they're leading Europe, beating the crap out of the UK and Sweden.  Only people ahead of them are the US and a bunch of third world countries that are about to be turbo-farked.

They're gonna catch up pretty quick.

Brazil has 209.5 million people. The US has 328 million. Per capita Brazil might beat Trump, but Trump is likely to have the biggest number. Both are likely to have imploding economies in a few months.

The thing about Brazil is that they're a lot less able to just... do whatever it takes than we are.

If we felt like getting our shiat together we could stop the spread of Corona basically dead tomorrow.  It would take sacrifice but we could do it.

Brazil isn't the richest country on earth.  As Corona spreads they are REALLY going to have a lot of dead people.
 
2020-05-28 9:48:58 PM  
It was a few weeks ago, but Macron also had the honesty to admit France should have been better prepared.

Trump blamed Obama and everyone else.  He would even blame me if I were important enough for him to have heard of me.

I think Brazil will pass us. They have about 11.25 million people living in favelas. That virus will rip through every one of those, and those people struggle with access to basic sanitation, much less any healthcare, many are in already in poor health, and they live on top of each other.

I'll add that Rocinha has 180k per sq mile, compared to Manhattan's 67k.

I'd agree, but shiat like PPE has a shelf life for a very important reason. As stuff sits around it ends up decaying some to the point where it's less a mask for keeping viruses and the like out and more a wish. If he were burning PPE that was still well within its life expectancy we'd be having a far different argument.
 
2020-05-28 10:39:23 PM  
I don't think it was burning the expired supplies so much as not replacing them.

Yeah, the Favelas are going to be brutal bad, especially for anyone older or who has a health condition.

Also there were various reports of similar things happening throughout the US.

Just a stab in the dark, but I would guess the masks have a shelf life of about 10 years and stockpiles built up after the 2009 swine flu were expiring and having not needed them for a decade who wants to pay to rebuild the stockpiles?

Weird, I'm here with my café au lait, watching in turn the news on BFM & LCI.  No mention of this so far.

UK media often exaggerates, or outright fabricates (Daily Express) stories about the continent to reassure nervous Brits that they're still better than us.

Plus ça change...

Yup. The problem isn't burning them. It's not replacing the. Cheap farking hukster skates.

Macron is having the same problem every left-wing leader ends up with.
"Hey, we need to replace this crumbling, decrepit thing the last right-wing government let decay into uselessness.  That's going to cost money though."
*opposition leaders scream loudly about deficits and how are we going to pay for that*
"OK fine, in order to do this thing we desperately need that protects public safety without increasing the deficit, we're going to have to raise the taxes a little, because the last admin cut them too far"
*right-wing voters riot in the streets*

I hate Trump. Having said that-tell us when France has a population of about 330 million instead of 66 million. In other words, multiply the the # of Coronavirus deaths in France by 5 (as 66mil goes into 330mil 5 times, der) to come up with an actual comparison.

France has had 28-29 thousand deaths.

Mortality wise-they are actually doing worse than the United States. Forgetting about testing of course.

Just because Trump is a farkwad doesn't mean you should ignore facts or insult the subby. Dummy.

Speaking of other countries' responses, I wonder what is up in the Philippines. Is Duarte having militias shoot suspected virus carriers on sight?

Pretty sure the article links to a Times (of London-I assume) article at the end of it. Now scrolling past the farking ads and actually finding the damn end isn't easy.
