Skip to comments.Live updates: Birx warns Florida, Texas and California are ‘three New Yorks’ as coronavirus deaths soar

As U.S. coronavirus cases surged past 4 million on Thursday, the number of daily covid-19-related deaths surpassed 1,000 for the third consecutive day. More than 500 of the fatalities were recorded in Florida, California and Texas, where the novel coronavirus is spreading at alarming rates. What we have right now are essentially three New Yorks with these three major states, White House coronavirus response coordinator Deborah Birx said, a reference to the earlier epicenter of the U.S. outbreak.

Failed to mask and social distance and now paying the price as patients are being triaged. Death rate will skyrocket.
They needed the deaths for political reasons, and they somehow got them?
Six presstitutes to retransmit Birx’ handout?
Oh yes, Florida where there are now investigations of deliberately inflating the case numbers and deaths?
Actually no one is New York. Not unless you’re shoving the infected into nursing homes.
She’ll be ‘corrected’ on her statement, since California is run by Democrats.
Not hardly. Our governor is not deliberately doing his best to off Grandma.
Until I see piles of bodies being burned in the streets I’m not convinced.
Deaths per million in New York is 10 times that in Texas and 8 times that in Florida.
Population of Texas is 50% higher than New York.
Thee are not even close.
Enough of this idiotic nonsense already. Rand Paul nailed it.
Put a sock in it, or a mask on it, fearbro.
What do the tests prove?
That I am not currently infected...uhmmm...sorry...forgot the new nomenclature is “that I am not currently a case”?
How do you know?
I mean the tests themselves are flawed and test for “Corona” not specifically Covid-19.
Moreover, your colleagues at FDA have a very different take on these tests:
Vendome to Jim Noble
Positive results are indicative of active infection with
2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected
may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are
required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.
Negative results do not preclude 2019-nCoV infection and should not be used as the sole basis for treatment or other patient management decisions.”
Translation: A positive test doesn’t guarantee that the COVID virus is causing infection at all. Then again, maybe the COVID virus isAC not be in the patient’s body either.
From the World Health Organization (WHO): “Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) technical guidance: Laboratory testing for 2019-nCoV in humans” https://bit.ly/3cidWiS
“Several assays that detect the 2019-nCoV have been and are currently under development, both in-house and commercially. Some assays may detect only the novel virus [COVID] and some may also detect other strains (e.g. SARS-CoV) that are genetically similar.”
Translation: Some PCR tests register positive for types of coronavirus that have nothing to do with COVID—including plain old coronas that cause nothing more than a cold.
Shes still around?
Idiotic post of the day?
Vital Statistics Reference Guidance 03, April 2020(CDC)
When reporting cause of death on a death certificate, use any
information available, such as medical history, medical records,
laboratory tests, an autopsy report, or other sources of relevant
information. Similar to many other diagnoses, a cause-of-death
statement is an informed medical opinion that should be based
on sound medical judgment drawn from clinical training and
experience, as well as knowledge of current disease states and
local trends (6).
This section on the death certificate is for reporting the sequence
of conditions that led directly to death. The immediate cause of
death, which is the disease or condition that directly preceded
death and is not necessarily the underlying cause of death
(UCOD), should be reported on line a. The conditions that led
to the immediate cause of death should be reported in a logical
sequence in terms of time and etiology below it.
The UCOD, which is “(a) the disease or injury which initiated
the train of morbid events leading directly to death or (b) the
circumstances of the accident or violence which produced the
fatal injury” (7), should be reported on the lowest line used in
Maybe Texas and Florida are being seeded because they are Trump states.
Yep. Does she mention the death rate is deaths over all and that it is (from what I have read) is actually going down because the rate of infection is higher than previously believed based on test results?
