When I hear the word humility, I naturally think Trump.

Nice knowing you all - time to kiss my shiny metal ass goodbye I guess.

The feds will have it to 9,999 by then end of next week.  It's who counts the votes...

The only way that could happen is another 6-8 week total lockdown.

Like, nation wide? The only way that is happening is if they cook the books way more than they are doing now.

The concern is the flu season.  If COVID-19 hospitalizations are still going strong when the flu season hits, things will get extra ugly.
 
2020-08-04 8:39:01 AM  
Hell, I'd be happy if just *Florida* is under 10k/day in September.

/The Googles shows them at ~9650 for August 1st, but I'm calling BS on that.

So you're saying that this season's flu will be just another COVID bug?

Yeah, but that would mean that everybody would have to join together to defeat a common enemy, which only happens in the movies.

I just had to travel for the first time since this all started. Even in the best areas I went to like Denver there were still a lot of people not caring about masks. At least some stores like the Target I ran into were doing a good job. While driving through Nebraska I didn't go into one gas station. Maybe 10% of the people there are wearing masks before you get to Lincoln. Rural Missouri seemed the same. Where I live it seems most people aren't taking this seriously. Buffets open, bars with loud music open, and the looming threat of open schools.

Do you think they are under-reporting or over-reporting the numbers?

The fact is that New York did a bad job.  Here in Florida, Ron DeSantis did a great job.  The decisions he made here great.  Such a great job.  Did you see the job he did?  Such a job.

Please die at home as hospital space needs to be reserved for the wealthy. Thank you and please drive through.

You can only hope that the masks and sanitisation, half-assed as they are, will reduce flu transmission as well.

It depends on who you ask.  Because there are actually 3 different answer to this.

1. Conservatives say ALL cases are over-reported.
2. Other conservatives are fins with under-reporting the numbers, because the larger numbers make them look bad.  These people are not communicating very well with the first group.
3. Everyone who is NOT conservative, is pretty well aware that there is no liberal plan out there to destroy Trump with virus numbers.  We also know that hospitals and medical professionals can't just make up numbers, or claim that "all these people died from COVID", even though they didn't, in order to inflate the numbers.  It doesn't work like that.

tldr;  Numbers are not over reported.  They are in fact, under-reported to minimize the impact.  How many times have we seen the evidence buried?  I have data showing that Kansas, for instance, doesn't report anything at all for days at a time.  And if it were up to Trump and his people, we would just stop reporting those numbers completely because they make him look bad.

If we were doing enough to put a dent in the flu, we'd be doing enough to shut down covid and wouldn't be having this conversation.

And if the cases are still 10,000 per day but things have improved greatly, will he resign?
 
2020-08-04 8:55:09 AM  
The US will cook their books to get to that number... watch the UN's (via the WHO) numbers instead:
https://www.who.int/emergencies/disea​s​es/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-re​ports/

Right now they're reporting the US at about 58k new infections / day, while all sources I have that pull via the Trump administration kitchen are showing numbers around 45-49k / day.

It's sadly too bad that there isn't a more timely report on overall death rates in the US historically, so we could be watching the change in mortality from the historical average rate per day, to whatever it is now. Without that it will be impossible to know for about two years just how many more people died because of COVID.

Well that and the numbers don't mean squat because they aren't accurate in any way.  I've read that EXPERTS believe the number of cases to be at least 10 times what is being seen in tests.   Of course there is no way of knowing so.... Use the numbers to make whatever case one wants to.

Everyone is going to get this virus weather they know it or are among the majority who won't!!

Can I have more stimulus please?

Is this the same Dr. Fauci who was recently photographed in the stands at a baseball game (which we aren't allowed to attend), not wearing his mask (which we are required to do in public), and not socially distanced from two other people? At least they were wearing their masks.

I'll take this seriously when the authorities take it seriously. And they don't, on either side of the aisle. Just the other day it was just fine for a couple hundred of them to attend a funeral but too bad about your Uncle Steve. And do you think there is even one traveling politician who pays one bit of attention to their destination state's quarantine rules?

Our elected and appointed leaders should be setting an example. And they are, but not the one we need.

If they can try a spinal surgeon in Texas as a serial killer because he sucked so bad at his job that he maimed a dozen people, then hopefully someone with a spine can try Trump and his entire admin for human rights abuses during a pandemic.

"Open the f*cking schools and get the f*ck back to work, peasants" is an approach that serves only one purporse.

Doesn't matter what the numbers look like, when Autumn arrives they WILL spike.

If they are bad when we get there then they will be really, really bad.

No BS. Testing sites shut down for hurricane. See, you test less, you have less cases.

Ok, I threw up in my mouth a little making the joke. However, there is less testing done in last couple days, which is not correlated to an actual drop in cases, just diagnosed ones.
 
2020-08-04 9:02:15 AM  
Trump should just do an executive order demanding there be fewer than 10,000 cases a day.  Problem solved.

The one day when the "protestors" decided to close the I-5 bridge between Portland and Vancouver, during rush hour. The police didn't do jack to stop them. It will be years before Portland re-emerges as a city that people want to visit. I pity anyone in 2020 who is trying to run a business there.

nice answer.

and as we all know, the real answer is probably that the number of deaths is being under-reported, especially when you look at the number of excess deaths recorded over the historical averages for the same time of year. Not all of these excess deaths are caused by covid as some of them are deaths due to people not seeking medical attention due to fear of going to hospitals in a pandemic. But quite a few of them would be deaths due to covid but the cadavers just weren't tested.
