Donald Trump's Chief of Staff Mark Meadows took some heat for his assertion that we're not going to control the pandemic.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Sunday that the country is not going to control the pandemic noting it is contagious like the flu and must be managed with therapeutics and vaccines.democrats immediately pounced on that
Were not going to control the pandemic. We are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics and other mitigation efforts, Meadows said during a contentious interview with Jake Tapper on CNNs State of the Union.
Why arent we going to get to control the pandemic? Tapper asked.
Because it is a contagious virus just like the flu, Meadows responded, as the two went back and forth about President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence continuing to campaign after five members of Pences staff testing positive.
Let me just say this is what we need to do is make sure that we have the proper mitigation factors whether its therapies or vaccines or treatments to make sure that people dont die from this, he said.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has made the Trump administrations handling of the coronavirus pandemic a main thrust of his campaign, said he was stunned.He's absolutely right. The evidence is all over. We are not going to control the pandemic. Biden says what he's told to say. Cuomo has failed to control the COVID pandemic.
This wasnt a slip by Meadows, Biden said in a statement. It was a candid acknowledgement of what President Trumps strategy has clearly been from the beginning of this crisis: to wave the white flag of defeat and hope that by ignoring it, the virus would simply go away. It hasnt, and it wont.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, meanwhile, accused the administration of surrender.
He said we cant control the virus. That was a very telling statement, that he said that. Flattening the curve is controlling the virus, Cuomo said Sunday at a coronavirus briefing.
So has everyone else.
There is no "second wave." It's merely the first wave once again trying to barge in.
Remember when new Zealand was the darling of the world?
Wellington, New Zealand (CNN) After weeks of lockdown, New Zealand has achieved its ambitious goal of eliminating the coronavirus. But the country isn't celebrating yet.
But they had not eliminated it. They only bottled it up.
Over the past few days, newly diagnosed infections have been in the single digits. And on Monday, New Zealand reported just one new case.
"That does give us confidence that we've achieved our goal of elimination, which never meant zero but it does mean we know where our cases are coming from," Ashley Bloomfield, New Zealand's Director General of Health, said on Monday, adding that there was only one case since April 1 where authorities were still investigating the source of infection.
Gradually the country was allowed to open a bit and POW- a new outbreak and another lockdown.

If you ask me it looks like the MSM want’s to control the virus but only up until November 3rd.
That’s because it is a Planned Scamdemic.
The actual medial “pandemic” is basically on its last legs.
The Leftist POLITCAL pandemic with it’s Anti-Trump Re-election Virus and opportunity to implement draconian totalitarian unconstitutional government measures on the people is in full swing.
We don’t want to “control” the pollical pandemic, we want to utterly wipe it out and send the Delusional Lying Leftist Tyrants packing.
If the criteria for “control” is no positive tests then we will be in perpetual lockdown. Either stop testing or accept the fact that there will ALWAYS be positive tests.
Libs also think that you can control hurricanes by selling less SUVs.
Not exactly geniuses we are dealing with here.
This is a very important discussion, which Mr. Meadows has opened up in a somewhat inartful way.
You can’t make policy that is coherent if you don’t know what you are trying to do.
We have lots of policies that, if they were universal, enforceable, and did not produce catastrophic harm, could lead to zero infections.
They are not universal, they are unenforceable, and they do lead to catastrophic harm, even when not universal and only partially enforced.
Battling in the public space over policies that cannot be carried out other than under a dictatorship is simple virtue-signalling - AND, it diverts attention from actually achievable mitigation policies that could save some lives and help a lot of people avoid a lot of harm.
The continued infatuation with this thing defies all common sense. The same crap is recited day after day. We have people here who post pages of BS gibberish data day after day, seeking attention. Look at me!
Indeed. I've noticed that online, radio and TV talk about the China virus has picked up again in intensity. It seems to me that it's because it's (as Nancy Pelosi may put it) the last arrow remaining in their quiver.
How soon before this covid virus is referred to as a “seasonal covid” just like the seasonal flu is?
“Flattening the curve is controlling the virus,”
WE FLATTENED THE DAMN CURVE, JACKBOOT JACKASS.
You sent ships back and closed up field hospitals because they weren’t needed! That means the hospitals were NOT overwhelmed and never were!
Never mind most of us know our hospitals aren’t overwhelmed. They just like to act like it.
Yes, and evidently people scared stiff and scaring their kids too.
Our son finally returned to in-school sessions today. He has been shunned by his erstwhile “friends” because he didn’t wear a mask OUTSIDE while walking to gym with them. They shamed him with “get away from me” and “6 feet!” which he was, incidentally, but one MUST have a mask.
This is stupidity, absurdity, insanity.
And it’s turning into subtle analogies to the snitch culture of tyrannical socialists.
