I'd like to pass that info along.
Real-time COVID/Corona stats ..............
From the CDC....
And from World-O-Meter...
Yea and while we strap down to try and "save the planet" from emissions, china is busy undoing that 2 or three times over.
Other countries CAN do it.
We set off nuclear weapons on our own soil (way more than you think) - google it, you'll be amazed.
I don't disagree. It can def. be done. It's just going to be a long, cold war like process. Nothing is impossible. Would have had a hard time believing you could bring the world to a stand still in a matter of days... but here we are.
It’s not at a stand still
It might be as far as you can see
But somehow there’s still knuckleheads traveling to Asia
There’s Americans reinfecting Koreans and Singapore!
I mean really?
Who’s traveling to the land of uncooked bar soup right now?
Clearly someone has different idea of what’s “critical” travel
I would vote for more taxes
Democrats for president
You could even have my assault rifle, IF
a full scale boycott of China was part of that deal. and by that I mean leveraging and leaning on our allies and trade partners to do the same.
Nothing could please me more than turning that place into the next Eastern Africa
What they do here is shut the homes water off and lock it. Was thrilled that the county I live in started enforcing heavily last year. About time!
i really hope you take articles like that with a grain of salt. It does nothing but stoke conspiracy theories. Did they ever think that maybe the death toll is down in a 3 week period because the whole country is at home and not getting in car accidents, falling off roofs, or any other common cause of death outside the home? I am not saying that the numbers are wrong or that the decision to close the economy was the right one but spreading articles around like this one that don’t tell the whole story do nothing but cause division.
That site you linked is a known propagator of misinformation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gateway_Pundit
I think the following statistic is more relevant to deaths in the U.S. Since you seem to be concerning the numbers in relation with the response to COVID-19 pandemic, the numbers for deaths from the flu and pneumonia hold more water than the total (aggregate) number of deaths. Let's look at those numbers from the table you reference. This from the link to the CDC numbers used in the article author is extrapolating from.
Information for selected week and previous two weeks, national summary, all ages
Week 10, 11, 12 number influenza deaths: 529, 491, 331
Week 10, 11, 12 number pneumonia deaths: 3404,3203, 2930
Week 10, 11, 12 Total deaths: 51978, 47655, 40002
Those figures say to me the Stay-at-Home and Social Distancing, and other responses enacted to battle this pandemic are working as anticipated! This is wonderful news!
Now if you really wanted some numbers to consider, a 4-year comparison of "Same Period Last Year" for "deaths from influenza and pneumonia" would be more relevant than total deaths (which include deaths from any source). I have no guesstimate what those numbers might be, but am looking forward to hearing them and then looking at them to see how the response to the COVID-19 pandemic has worked or not. Chop-chop.
