Testing, testing, testing -- that's how Pelosi and the Democrats say we'll defeat the coronavirus. Meanwhile, President Trump and his administration are conducting "operation warp speed" at breakneck pace to develop therapeutics, diagnostics, and a vaccine for the Wuhan flu. Unlike testing, treatments will actually do something for you when you come down sick with the disease. But now we're learning the overwhelming majority of those who have tested positive for the coronavirus should really have been found negative after all.
According to (The New York Times), potentially 90 percent of those who have tested positive for COVID-19 have such insignificant amounts of the virus present in their bodies that such individuals do not need to isolate nor are they candidates for contact tracing. Leading public health experts are now concerned that overtesting is responsible for misdiagnosing a huge number of people with harmless amounts of the virus in their systems.
[snip] It helps to understand The Times' religious devotion to testing if one understands that Democrats have long-since committed to taking the polar opposite position of whatever President Trump believes. It's a symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome. If Trump is hopeful about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine, then Democrats believe the drug will kill you. If Trump believes we should focus less on testing and more on treatments, Democrats and the media will insist we do nothing but testing and forget about treatments altogether.
There is no evidence for this speculation. But that never stops ideologues from printing it as fact.
Townhall, the gateway pundit of internet magazines.
This was not an accident or an oversight.
It was by design.
Trump was schnookered. The task force either should have known, or did know but did not tell him.
I guess that means that 90% of the Deaths “with” COVID aren’t COVID deaths.
So this virus has killed, like, 18,000 people this year? It’s not even the flu, bro.
No, it is actually worse than that: Only 9800 deaths from COVID occurred in people who had no other diseases than the Wuhan flu itself.
OK! New rule here. ONE stinking virus bug and you are listed in the “infected” column. No surprise, I knew the whole thing was artificially inflated to get Trump.
So if I shoot a man with diabetes, it’s not murder because no death has occurred? Or it just doesn’t count because he already had diabetes?
We’ve known since April that most of the people who die from this are people who have other underlying health conditions. Don’t know why it’s suddenly being treated as some bombshell news.
People who have diabetes, hypertension, etc. live for DECADES with those conditions. Everyone will eventually die from something. The point is that 180,000+ people in the US have died THIS YEAR because of COVID-19. The excess mortality figures show that much.
And how long have you believed in unicorns?
Some of us have known since March that this epidemic was a hoax. Trump drank the Fauci Kool Aid, no one bothered to connect the dots re hospital compensation for Covid vs normal Medicare patients. The bogus counts have been obvious since day one. It never ceases to amaze me hope naive and stupid so many people are in this planet, including Trump in this case. Deep state Fauci needs to be waterboarded to admit whos paying him. If it were up to me, Id gag the little prick and throw him in Leavenworth solitary.
hee hee hee
It isn’t shooting, it’s a bad flu.
If you shot everyone instead of infecting them with the Covid virus, you would have 40 million hospitalizations.
I have a general rule of thumb on FR when posts seem a bit troll-ish.
Wand over the poster’s name, and if they signed-up for the account anytime AFTER Trump took office, ignore everything they have to say.
Yes, it's real. Yes, people are dying. No, it's not the end of the world. No, it's not smallpox. It's a disease that's killing enough people to be taken seriously, exactly as President Trump has been doing. It's a disease that's worth beating with a vaccine, just as President Trump has been working to do. Once again, the president has the information available to make good, informed decisions and is showing his leadership ability in a time of crisis. If you want to know the truth of what's going on, look to President Trump.
Influenza kills an average of 37,000 people in a year. This has killed 180,000+ in 6 months. If it were a flu, it would be the second worst in US history behind the 1918 Spanish flu.
Not worth shutting down the economy or going crazy over, but certainly worth taking seriously and working to end it.
Thank you for the graphs
Or a nasty chest cold, as Ann Barnhardt calls it ....
But what about folks like me, Buckeye? I signed up after Pres. Trump took office, and I'm most certainly not a troll. :-)
I knew the little dictators would switch to “cases” as the metric. You could see the writing on the wall when they were screaming that Trump was not testing enough.
You do not test asymptomatic people, yet that is what we have done. Which in turn drove the “cases” up, which the little dictators use to keep their boots on our throats.
No locked down area is looking at deaths or hospitalizations anymore as a stat for reopening. It is all case driven, which will prove to be almost endless until nature takes its course. Which btw is being needlessly stretched out by “protective” measures.
That is what they are calling the asymptomatic spreader
Wouldn't you love to see his stock portfilio! Big Pharma......
