While its true the mortality rate has fallen thanks to doctors and younger, less affected patients, that is about to change.

Quite a few states are now at maximum hospital capacity and will begin rationing care.

You know... death panels.

So as cases continue to skyrocket, expect mortality rates to tick back upwards.

/it also ignores that death isnt the only negative outcome.  Younger, "healthy" patients still get, in significant percentages, insomnia, anxiety; reduced cognitive ability ('like your brain aged 10 years in two weeks'); and heart abnormalities.
//and we still dont know long term affects, whether it lies dormant for a while and comes back, or how common re-infection is.

The Trump administration is clearly failing us, but the media should be broadcasting pictures of caskets and graveyards and bodies stacked like cord wood every single day.

That's what turned people against the Vietnam war.  The piles of bodies being broadcast day in and day out reminded people what the administration was doing to Americans.  Instead, we've sanitized it, people just hear numbers and statistics and have removed the humanity of every mother, grandparent, sibling from it. They're not faces anymore, they're just numbers.

And numbers are easy to ignore. People need a steady constant diet of just how nauseating and inhuman we're treating this pandemic.

Yeah, yeah, it's "FAKE NEWSSSS!!!!" and 30% will scream that, until it hits home, which it's starting to for most.

Anyone who focuses only on the mortality rates and not what kind of long term effects this is going to have on a generation of young people who 'recover' is an idiot.

Being hospitalized with Covid will now be a preexisting condition that will not let you join the military.
That is just one example of what will be a lot of firsts where recovery will still hurt the lives of those who have had this disease all their life.

The US has more COVID-19 deaths every two months than it had combat deaths in Vietnam. Of course the offspring of bonespurs wouldn't possibly understand why that would be meaningful to a large portion of the population of this country.

365,000 deaths in a calendar year would be more deaths than any single cause with two exceptions: heart disease and cancer. I wonder if DHS thinks heart disease and cancer deaths are "almost nothing" as well.

If 1,000 people were getting shot in the head each day, instead of on a ventilator gasping their last breaths, nobody who wanted to ever remain politically viable in this country would dare to call it "almost nothing."

For fun, play with this and see if this idiot is right about us beating Europe.  Spoiler:  Since April 4, the US has had a higher percentage of its population dying of COVID than "Europe and Central Asia".

The better comparison would be to a competently run, wealthy nation like Germany.  We've been dying at about 20x the rate of Germans over that span.

But please tell us, Diaper Don, how well we're doing.

It's "nobody" to them. Because most of the fatalities are black.

Republicans' attitude toward COVID changed on April 17. That was the day a big study came out showing that most fatalities were African-American, while whites were largely unaffected. That's the very day Republicans all switched to "let's open up and get everybody back to work."

In 2014, Trump criticized Obama heavily over the Ebola outbreak, accused him of playing golf instead of combating the virus. Two Americans contracted Ebola, from treating a handful people in the U.S. who brought it in from other countries. One person died (a doctor from Liberia).

In 2020, Trump is once again showcasing his hypocrisy and incompetence exponentially.

JudgeSmails: that's a really helpful closing message Jr.  I'm surprised he just didn't say directly "we don't care"


He and his father both are sending the same sort of message, too.

The frustrating thing isn't that they're doing it -- the Trumps are awful, selfish, out of touch people; we KNOW that already -- it's that so many millions can't see it when it's right in their face.

They're basically just rubbing their wangs in everyone's faces while muttering, "Yeah, take that you filthy biatch. I'm going to pee on you," and a big chunk of the nation is like, *swoon*, "He cares about us SO MUCH!"

THAT'S what is so frustrating. The willful blindness of so many millions of people.

Look, there will always be dumb extremists out there. ALWAYS. You cannot avoid it.

But in a sane world, this election wouldn't even be CLOSE. Biden would be walking away with it with 80% of the vote.

The fact that it's still up in the air tells us loud and clear that defeating Trump will be equal to one small swipe on a diarrhea-splattered ass. Sure, it's a start, but you're still smeared with shiat and you still smell like a sewer.
