Sadly, the US seems to be following Italy's pattern... with a 2 week lag. And Italy's a bit more aggressive with quarantining areas than the US is.

Nope... CFR still going down steadily and at a faster rate, as it has been for weeks now...

Down to about 1.3% now, was 1.5% yesterday.

It will likely end up less than 1% maybe around .5%, and that is only because of the novelty. Next year when it comes around again, it will likely be something close to the flu.

It is here. We now have to learn to live with it.

They are correct.

As financial pain spreads and increases amongst American families, the hoax will become increasingly obvious.

All too much of the fuss and feathers is overblown. Not that the bug can't be dangerous, in some sections of the population, it's all too dangerous...

Trump is going to catch hell, irregardless of what he does, or doesn't, do.

Alaska has been asked by the mayor of Anchorage to 'hunker down' until Match 31 so as not to overwhelm their limited medical resources, according to the latest news report.

Medical care in Alaska is extremely limited. I hope it doesn't hit them hard; there won't be a whole lot they can do if they have very many critical patients.

Hasn't rand Paul got the virus, well apparently yes he does..

Rand Paul Has More Than a Cold


The senator from Kentucky was worried enough to get tested. But while he waited for the results, he kept going to work, the gym, and the pool.

By inadvertently spreading the coronavirus around the U.S. Capitol for at least a week, Rand Paul has turned the world’s greatest deliberative body into the nation’s highest-profile vector for the spread of the pandemic.

The senator from Kentucky was worried enough about being exposed to the virus that he got a still-hard-to-obtain test for it. But while he was waiting for the results, he decided to keep showing up to the Senate. He went to group lunches with his Republican colleagues, took the Capitol elevators, talked with reporters, and worked out in the somehow-still-open Senate gym. Yesterday morning, he was doing laps in the pool there.
By yesterday afternoon, Paul had announced that he had tested positive. Graciously, he said that he would start self-quarantining.
Paul is exactly what we’ve been told to worry about. For all the laughing and hate-tweeting directed at spring breakers saying they don’t think the coronavirus is a big deal, they’re at worst dumb, selfish, underinformed 20-somethings. Paul is a medical doctor (he worked as an ophthalmologist before first being elected in 2012). He is a senator. He is an elected official. People look to him for leadership.

So there is a reasonable chance he's given his old man the disease and we will find out just how much of a hoax it really is.

They can be really bad, and the edited coverage of the press conferences afterwards can make it even worse.

Id encourage everyone to watch them direct from the source, whether they love or hate Trump, or anything in between.

Decent video doing some very "interesting" direct comparisons..
