American Nero.

Image result for coronavirus trump images

America is now firmly in the grip of the coronavirus and all the trouble that it brings.
The president of the United States finally stopped lying and pretending that there was nothing wrong, and he finally started telling the American people what they are dealing with. Finally.

Of course he might be the reason that we are here in the first place. His leadership in this time of crisis has been severely lacking, and he has ignored all of the dire warnings from the former administration and health care professionals. His fragile ego and limited capacity to grasp the big picture just would not allow him to come to grips with what we were facing. Thankfully, he seems to have finally gotten it. Only time will tell how much damage his inactivity and lies will cost the American people in the long run.

The following article is from David Frum writing for The Atlantic. 

"At every turn, President Trump’s policy regarding coronavirus has unfolded as if guided by one rule: How can I make this crisis worse?

Presidents are not all-powerful, especially not in the case of pandemic disease. There are limits to what they can do, for good or ill. But within those limits, at every juncture, Trump’s actions have ensured the worst possible outcomes. The worst outcome for public health. The worst outcome for the American economy. The worst outcome for American global leadership.

Trump’s Oval Office speech of March 11 was the worst action yet in a string of bad actions.
Here are the things the president did not do in that speech.

He offered no guidance or policy on how to prevent the spread of the disease inside the United States. Should your town cancel its St. Patrick’s Day parade? What about theatrical productions and sporting events? Classes at schools and colleges? Nothing.

He offered no explanation of what went wrong with the U.S. testing system, nor any assurance of when testing would become more widely available. His own previous promises of testing for anyone who needs it have been exploded as false. So what is true? Nothing.

Layoffs are coming, probably on a very large scale, as travel collapses and people hunker down at home. Any word for those about to lose their jobs? Only the vaguest indication that something might be announced sometime soon.

It’s good to hear that there will be no co-pays on the tests nobody seems able to get. What about other health-care coverage? Any word on that? Nothing.

The financial markets have plunged into a 2008-style crash, auguring a recession, perhaps a severe one. The Trump administration has had almost two months to think about this crisis. It has trial-ballooned some ideas. But, of course, fiscal policy would require assent from the House of Representatives. Trump is still pouting at Speaker Nancy Pelosi. So—aside from some preposterously unconvincing happy talk about the economy—again: nothing.

There was one something in the speech: a ban on travel from Europe, but not the United Kingdom. It’s a classic Trump formulation. It seeks to protect America by erecting a wall against the world, without thinking very hard how or whether the wall can work. The disease is already here. The numbers only look low because of our prior failure to provide adequate testing. They will not look low even four days from now. And those infected with the virus can travel from other countries and on other routes. Trump himself has already met some.

The travel ban is an act of panic. Financial futures began crashing even as Trump was talking, perhaps shocked by his lack of an economic plan, perhaps aghast at his latest attack on world trade. (The speech seemed to suggest an embargo on European-sourced cargo as well, but that looks more like a mental lapse of Trump’s than a real policy announcement. The ban on cargo was retracted by a post-speech tweet, although the ban remains in the posted transcript of the speech.) Among other things, the ban represents one more refutation by Trump of any idea of collective security against collective threats. While China offers medical assistance to Italy, he wants to sever ties to former friends—isolating America and abandoning the world.

This crisis is not of Trump’s making. What he is responsible for is his failure to respond promptly, and then his perverse and counterproductive choice of how to respond when action could be avoided no longer". ....{Article}

Trotting out Mr. sycophant, Mike Pence, daily to praise dear leader might be good for trump's ego, but he has been doing nothing for us. We are still not where we should be with getting people tested, and we continue to get mixed messages from the healthcare professionals and the incompetent lemmings in the trump administration.

I, like most Americans, will have to change how I live my life for the next few weeks. I am pissed, because I happen to love my life, and this is not cool. 

It's not cool, but I get it, it's necessary. If only the president had gotten it months ago.

This is what happens when Republicans are in control, they tell you how incompetent government is and then they set out to prove it. Americans are hard headed and need to learn things the hard way. Ya would have thought we learned our lesson with Katrina and Bush but nooooooooooooo. Republicans tank the economy, tax cuts pay for themselves trickle down anyone, and then need a Dem to be an adult and save us. Then after eight years of an adult fixing things we go right back and find the biggest dumbest Republican and start the process all over. Sometimes reality has a way of reminding us by smacking us in the face, global warming anyone? When this recession hits and many of us lose jobs and get infected universal healthcare and a guaranteed wage won't sound so crazy will it?

No, here's what really happened - Trump hired some scientist to develop the Coronavirus19, sent it to China with the agreement that they would send it back soon. Trump wants more money for his "wall" and plans to kill off many old people, thus saving money in the Social Security Trust fund. Then he can take money from that fund to pay for the wall.

Thank dog Dems ain't near as stoopid as wingnuts, or this country would really be fucked.

The Dow dropped below 20k today, about where Obama left it in pitiful shape according to drumpfuck the dumbfuck and dumbfuck wingnuts.

drumpf, thanks to his previous taxcuts for the wealthy and calling for zero or lower interest rates has very few options to spur the economy. He is in wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy over his pea sized brain.

Dems will rescue the economy after drumpf gets his ass kicked to the street and then wingnuts will weasel their way back into power and destroy America all over again. Rinse and repeat.

An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Tuesday shows that only 37 percent of those polled have either “a good amount” or “a great deal” of trust in the the information they hear from the president about the coronavirus, while 60 percent say they do “not very much” or “not at all” trust Trump’s words on the subject.

They’re probably right, honestly. Democrats will be more affected overall, but not for the reasons they cited (they falsely claimed that Democrats are essentially feckless children, unable to follow directions or prepare for crises; probably with poor hygiene practices, too).

In actuality, Democrats just skew poorer overall, and so will have fewer resources to protect themselves. Also, Democrats are more likely than Republicans to live in densely packed urban centers, where diseases can spread more easily.

On the other hand, the redneck section of the GOP who are Trump’s strongest supporters mostly live in red states with bare-bones, inept governments. If they do get sick, no government help will be forthcoming. Bye-bye, Bubba.

There were zero SARS deaths in the US. And that epidemic happened during the Bush administration anyway.

Maybe you’re thinking about the H1N1 flu (aka swine flu) epidemic, which resulted in approximately 12,000 deaths? COVID-19 appears to be at least ten times as lethal as H1N1, and more contagious, too.

Trump would be extremely lucky to do as well as Obama did with H1N1. So far, he is failing miserably and the outcome appears likely to be much worse.

"I, like most Americans, will have to change how I live my life for the next few weeks."

Nope. The latest research out, the paper that got the UK to pull their heads out of their asses, says that mitigation strategies will be ineffective and allow for millions of deaths in the US and at least hundreds of thousands in the UK, so the only hope of not completely overwhelming the medical facilities is full-on suppression, lasting for the entire eighteen or so months until a vaccine can be deployed widely enough to build herd immunity.

You won't be going back to your cushy, privileged life in a few weeks.

You will, on the other hand, still be living far better than the poor schmucks with hourly wage jobs who are a couple of missed paychecks away from homelessness and will now be unemployed for a year or two.

Remember when the unemployment rate was above 9% and the Republican minorities in congress kept blocking long-term unemployment benefits so as to slow the recovery and make the black Democratic president look bad?

Well now those Republicans have control of the senate, and are already set to block any meaningful relief sent over from the only functional part of the government left, Nancy Pelosi's house majority.

So buckle up, buttercup, this hideous shit show is just starting.

The UK had the wacky idea that they could just let COVID-19 run wild thorough the young and healthy population to build “herd immunity” while somehow shielding the vulnerable. The fatal flaws in this plan (literally fatal) are that it’s not really feasible to hermetically seal off the vulnerable while the young are getting sick — inevitably Grandma would catch the virus, too. And even if it were feasible, the minority of young people who got seriously ill with COVID-19 would still be big enough to overwhelm ICUs.

Boris Johnson seems to have come to his senses and abandoned this plan.

Still, I am crossing my fingers that either we can get away with a lighter level of suppression once virus cases drop, or else that there is a technological breakthrough that resolves this situation quicker. I don’t think 18 months of “full-on” suppression is sustainable, either socially or economically.

eight levels of controls by Saul Alinsky to transform a nation through socialism into communism.

1. Healthcare – control healthcare and you control the people.

2. Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you provide everything for them to live.

3. Debt – Increase the debt level to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes and this will produce more poverty.

4. Gun control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5. Welfare – Take control of every aspect (food, housing, income) of their lives because that will make them fully dependent on the government.

6. Education – Take control of what people read and listen to and take control or what children learn in school.

7. Religion – Remove belief in God from the government and schools because the people need to believe in only the government knowing what is best for the people.

8. Class warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. Eliminate the middle class.

"I don’t think 18 months of “full-on” suppression is sustainable, either socially or economically."

It will be hard, but as the paper pointed out in more technical terms, the virus doesn't care about our social or economic structures, and if we want to save them, we're gonna have to do something.

The vaccine is being fast tracked, which means that steps are being skipped. That could get it out there sooner, and it could also fail to identify flawed vaccines until later in the process and thus slow the rollout. Either way we're still looking at a year at the outside before mass availability.

The antiviral drug research is being funded by the same Chinese billionaire who just shipped a million masks and a half million test kits to the US. That may make us look kinda dumb, but fuck that, we'll take them.

“Hard” is the understatement of the year. Possibly unachievable. It’s difficult to see how our economic system could adjust fast enough. And if it doesn’t, there’ll be mass riots from people who can’t work, and therefore can’t eat.

And then we go back to the British plan of just letting everyone catch the virus and watching the cemeteries fill up.

We have to hope the scientists come through with a vaccine or an antiviral or some other technological magic bullet before that happens.

Well, Trump is in charge of leading the country. He was informed as far back a late December or early January that the virus was a major threat. He could have taken many steps, such as ordering more respirators and equipment to protect health-care professionals, yet he did nothing. So he is partly to blame for the mess we are in. The buck stops in the Oval Office. Righties blamed Obama for every bad thing that happened during his eight years as president, so the same goes for Trump.

South Korea’s epidemic now appears to be in retreat, along with China’s. New virus case numbers are going down.

I hope our public health officials will talk to both countries about what methods worked to stop transmission, but I am particularly interested in South Korea, because they are a democracy like us (or at least like we try to be, on a good day). China got their infection under control by being jack-booted thugs, but it would be nice to know how to do it WITHOUT being jackbooted thugs.

South Korea’s method involves a ton of testing, but I’m not sure what else they’re doing.

If they’re here, even if unlawfully, they are a de facto part of our society. Their lives are intertwined with everyone else’s, and their actions affect everyone else. Our governmental policies have to account for that.

This disease crisis is going to make wingnut ideology look like the nonsense it is. You cannot treat people you don’t like as if they were non-people.

If you don’t give illegal immigrants healthcare, they will become disease vectors — and infect and kill your grandma. If you don’t give poor people healthcare, they will become disease vectors — and infect and kill your grandma. There is no way to wall off parts of the population and say that what happens to them doesn’t affect me, so who gives a shit about them? It turns out that claim was always a lie.

Keeping millions of illegal immigrants around so you can get them to do jobs for less than prevailing wages is just Slavery Lite.

Instead of getting just room and board, they get some pocket change and free healthcare too. It's still the same concept. Slaveholders make more profits because they don't need to pay full wages. Except now the government subsidizes the slaveholders by extracting wealth from the citizens.

America is a GDP that we all serve.

It would be a piece of cake to halt the Wuhan Flu in its tracks.  Steve Sailer nailed it a week ago:  everyone wears filter masks in public.  This stops the infected from breathing the virus onto others and blocks the chain of transmission.  Three weeks later, you've pretty much cleared out the problem because almost all the people who are going to get sick have done so and the asymptomatic cases have stopped shedding.

All it would take is 1 mask/person/day, 10 billion a month.  Or you can disinfect and reuse them a few times.

Trump wants more money for his "wall" and plans to kill off many old people, thus saving money in the Social Security Trust fund. Then he can take money from that fund to pay for the wall."

It would be a piece of cake to halt the Wuhan Flu in its tracks. Steve Sailer nailed it a week ago: everyone wears filter masks in public. This stops the infected from breathing the virus onto others and blocks the chain of transmission. Three weeks later, you've pretty much cleared out the problem because almost all the people who are going to get sick have done so and the asymptomatic cases have stopped shedding.

All it would take is 1 mask/person/day, 10 billion a month. Or you can disinfect and reuse them a few times.

Sounds good, but from where are we going to get 10 billion filter masks effective enough to stop the infected from breathing the virus onto others and blocks the chain of transmission? Any idea?

“It would be a piece of cake to halt the Wuhan Flu in its tracks. Steve Sailer nailed it a week ago: everyone wears filter masks in public.”

The sort of masks that effectively block transmission are expensive and in short supply. There aren’t even enough for the doctors and nurses, much less the entire US population.

You cannot disinfect and reuse them, so this vastly increases the supply problem.

And even if everyone were wearing them, you could not guarantee everyone would be perfect with their other hygiene practices, so there would still be lots of hand-to-surface-to-hand transmission.

It would be nice to think we could all just walk around in hazmat suits all day, perfectly safe from germs, but this plan won’t work.

Anonymous said...

To be clear, at some point, the general public may be able to produce a lot more of the paper masks and issue them to the general public. These are less effective, but will have some impact on transmission and I’d expect this to happen if the pandemic goes on long enough.

But this isn’t anything like a complete solution, and right now, even the cheap paper masks are virtually unavailable.

*the government may be able to produce a lot more of the paper masks

Paradoctor said...

Masks are mostly for those who already have the virus; it blocks them coughing it out. But the main transmission is by surface to hands to face. Therefore the need for hand-washing.

Washing and social distancing are only mitigation techniques; they slow the rate of transmission, thus flattening the curve. That in itself would prevent overwhelming the hospitals. Schedule your bout for later, folks. Avoid the rush.

The doctors are testing out several drugs right now, and the vaccine continues development. But it's 18 months to a vaccine, and drug-testing is also necessarily slow.

I've written the next year and a half off. Blame the virus.

"Masks are mostly for those who already have the virus; it blocks them coughing it out. But the main transmission is by surface to hands to face. Therefore the need for hand-washing."

Masks can help the person who isn't infected, too. Doctors and nurses will be exposed to high levels of virus from infected patients need them to avoid getting sick, as do caregivers for patients being cared for at home.

They're less useful for just random people on the street, but probably still useful. The government is trying discourage the general public from wanting them, though, because, bluntly, there aren't enough masks, and so the general public can't have them.

Just understand that when you are reading advice about "you don't need a mask," this is partly just expectations management. It would be nice to have them, but at this point, it's not a real option. Hell, we can't churn out enough freaking hand sanitizer -- or at least prevent assholes from hording it. Whisky distilleries are turning to making their own for donation or sale.

"The doctors are testing out several drugs right now, and the vaccine continues development. But it's 18 months to a vaccine, and drug-testing is also necessarily slow."

Drug testing for new drugs is slow, but we're not necessarily confined to new drugs. News media are saying there are no drugs for COVID-19, but in fact that's ... kind of a lie.

The reality is that there are no drugs we know will work, but there are existing antiviral drugs that may work, but just haven't been tested and proven to work on COVID-19 because they were developed to treat other diseases. China has already found one antiviral, favipiravir, that is at least somewhat effective against COVID-19.

Using an existing antiviral is probably our best hope of shortening the duration of the crisis, and avoiding the potential for serious social breakdown. 18 months is an insanely long time to just try and "adapt." (And if it took a full 18 months to get a vaccine approved, under pessimistic estimates of vaccine developement, the crisis would not end in 18 months, because you can't instantaneously produce enough vaccine to inoculate the ~60% of the population needed to achieve herd immunity.)

You don't have to stop the virus.  You just have to stop the phlegm droplets carrying the virus.  And you don't have to stop everything, you just have to get the number of new infections per infectee down to well below 1.

As for where to get the masks, cut off the newsprint supply to worthless lefty rags like the Carlos Slim blog and the Jeff Bezos blog and use the paper pulp to make masks instead.  That's a win/win.

"You cannot disinfect and reuse them"

Cloth surgical masks are good enough, and they're washable.  Bandanas are probably good enough.

Wrong. It is out of control in the US.

This is South Korea's epidemic. Note the curve of COVID cases bending toward the horizontal? That's what it looks like once an epidemic is under control.

Here is the US. Note the continual upward sweep of the graph? Those are exponentially increasing cases -- an epidemic NOT under control. We're at around 9000 cases now (and probably way more, because Trump has fucked up on providing tests). In two weeks, we'll be at 300,000 cases. This is an Italy situation in which hospitals in some areas get overwhelmed and can't treat patients, just have to let them die.

After that, if we're lucky, maybe cases will start falling. Maybe. We can only hope.

dinthebeast said...

In Italy, which reported the highest one day death toll today of any country so far in the pandemic (450), a small town called Vo where the first reported death there occurred instituted a program to test every inhabitant, all 3,300 of them.
They found about 90 positive results, including 6 that were asymptomatic and thus capable of spreading the virus without knowing they were infected.
They then isolated all 90 for ten days and then tested everyone again.
They found a handful of infections that time and isolated them.
Since then there have been no new infections there.
In Italy, which again, had the highest one day death toll anywhere so far in the pandemic. 450 deaths today, and 300 or more for the past four days in a row.
So testing and isolation does work. We know that now.
So where is the testing program here in the US?

S. Korea rolled out tests on a huge scale. This worked great for them, but we can't do it because we don't have enough tests. We don't have enough tests because Trump was too busy with rallying and telling his troglodyte followers that COVID-19 was nothing to worry about. I'm sure we'll eventually have enough tests, but a big opportunity to contain the virus has been missed.

Oh, it is still there you just can't see it because it was cleverly disguised as another program and drumpfy thinskin says he can get money and call experts back when needed. He just didn't want thousands of people hanging around doing nothing. What a pile of bullshit.

Working on the response to the pandemic, as they have been for months now.

Try getting in touch with reality.

What a fucking crock, anymoose. It does not exist anymore.

drumpfuck wants the government to take equity in companies that get bail out money. If i remember right, Obama took stock in GM and wingnuts threatened to lynch him, but only because he was black, right?

Chuck Schumer, February 5, 2020:

"The premature travel ban to and from China by the current administration is just an excuse to further his ongoing war against immigrants. There must be a check and Balance on these restrictions."

Americans fought for a century to implement OSHA, labor unions, workman's compensation, unemployment, and environmental regulations. Even if you got rid of all of that China will still be cheaper, because they have 4X the workforce to exploit. The only way to permanently reshore industry is through tariffs.

Free trader economists will always come out and tell us tariffs are bad and inefficient. That argument only holds if you prioritize GDP over your people.

Trump has been right on China from the start. It's time to put the interests of billionaires and mega corporation aside and put Americans first.

I'd guess about two months - last December and January might have been long enough to acquire some more safety equipment for medical workers and first responders. Time enough to plan for containment with accompanying protocols. Planning for this emergency isn't rocket science - it just requires getting the input from people who know how to manage pandemics and then following their advice into action. Lazy Mr. Trump didn't do anything.

What the hell are you talking about, person with no name? I gave you references, none of which were from MSNBC. I guess it was you I posted to. Hard to tell since you and you fellow trolls never use names. You rarely give reliable sources to support you nonsense and mostly you just hurl insults.

Says the woman who blames "racism" for blacks refusing to even try to learn in school, running around in criminal gangs robbing people and shooting each other.  "Racism" is the 21st century's answer to "witchcraft".  "I dindu nuffins, it was da WITCH made it happen!"  Substitute "racism" and you've got every excuse for black dysfunction and criminality you've ever heard.

"Racism" is the result of learning what blacks are like.  African saying:  "What's the difference between a tourist and a racist?  About two weeks."

The "right-wingnuts" are the only ones keeping your lights on, your home heated and food on your table.  You barking moonbats wouldn't know a combine from a condenser, but you think you're morally superior.  I hope this is the year that reality comes a-knocking for you.

I know a lot of black folks and none of them behave as you have described. You are totally deranged and have no place in a civilized society. You are beyond the Pale.

Have you been to Los Angeles or Seattle or Portland or San Francisco lately? I have.

Clearly you don't get out much.

Yes, I have been to one of them lately and all of them in the past. What is your point? Most cities in this country have a problem with human waste because there are few or no public toilets.

Wrong as usual. Most working people are Democrats, and the food on my table is brought to me by Latino migrant workers the same as yours is brought to you.

Not here.  People post signs and buy bumperstickers for Q Anon.

the food on my table is brought to me by Latino migrant workers the same as yours is brought to you.

The food on my table comes largely from local white farmers, white butchers, white stockers, white cooks.  If I see a non-white working in an establishment I leave and don't come back for at least a month.  I am not going to let some modern-day Jesse Jackson spit in my salad.  Non-whites have forfeited any claim to my trust.

Wrong as usual.

Yes, you are.
