Come on!! I mean I go to work. I never stopped. I go to the grocery store. I go Walmart. I'm all up in the filthy dirty corona zone all day since it started and I don't have the virus. It is nonsense.


This is the kind of # that is killing people. You have absolutely NO idea what you're talking about. You and the 'hospitals are empty' idiots. In addition to being a clueless twit you are dangerous. What's happening is the real deal. It's not a drill, it's not a bio attack, it's not a hoax. It's real. It's as real, but far more widespread, than the polio epidemic of the '50s. Stop posting this nonsense and stop being a selfish tool. You have an obligation to the rest of us just as we have an obligation to you. Grow up.


Well said!

Shush up till after I get my stimulus check and it clears the bank.


"I want my money NOW". That phrase from a legal commercial sticks in my head as to the inpatients of our American society. People cannot even wait for a TV show to come on tv and make plans to be there for the show, they want things when they want it and will pay for that service.

I completely agree. I work in a bank who's lobbies are shut down across the board, so we're sharing phone calls from all of our communities. Even though I haven't spoken to anyone who actually has the virus, I have spoken with people who have friends/families that have it, and even a few that have lost friends because of it. One woman told me that she lost a couple friends over in the UK because they didn't take the social distancing seriously at all and now, well, they don't get that second chance. This also depends on whether or not you believe what these people tell you.

My sister-in-law and her son, who's 2 years old, also have the virus now. My wife was talking to her the other day and she most definitely said the virus is hell on her lungs, to so speak.

This is on a government website, so it hardlly counts as information which is being hidden from us.


The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.

The need to have a national, coordinated response remains, but this is being met by the government’s COVID-19 response.


I'm not a healthcare professional, but it's obvious enough that HCID has a specialised definition, and it would be a big mistake for a layman to interpret it as meaning "no longer dangerous". You need to find someone who understands what this change of status really means.
The SAME page that reports the change also confirms that present response is still needed.

Funny isnt it... and I bet it's the same people who will be the first to tell you China is lying about their numbers and were probably mocking and laughing at how they handled it. Now its come to their neck of the woods and it's all fake.

If Trump listen to you, I'll consider him and idiot and won't vote for him again.


You've already demonstrated that would be no great loss by falling for this foolishness. Let's be rational here, in influenza frightens you into submission, your not the type of voter we need choosing the leader of the free world.

Oh come on! Trump was joking about the virus a few weeks ago, but he is not joking anymore, and by the last press conference trump had, he is taking this very seriously, and so should everyone else.

Yeah, nobody want to get sick from the flu. Since violating people's Rights is popular among the masses of asses nowadays I figured nobody would object to removing the voting rights of anyone stupid enough to give up their enumerated Rights in the name of this flu. Seems fair, ya? Y'all are scared so that's reason enough to crap on the rest of us, well... the idea of any of you voting and getting the responsibility to decide the direction of your country scares me, so the solution is to remove that right from you.

Oh come on! It's not the bloody end of the world losing a few things just to get this virus under control! We have freedom in the UK, the same freedom in America, but we are not moaning about our "freedoms" because we know what needs to be done. Yes, it tough at times being isolated, but it's not the end of the world.

And this is not the normal flu, I do not know why you keep saying that. Chances of getting flu are slim. Ladt time I had flu, I was in my 20s, I am in my 40s now. This virus, if you are close to someone, you eill get it. And it's not just killing elderly people, it killing people in their teens, , 20s, 30s,40s etc

Yes, it's killing more elderly, which is obvious why, but it can kill anyone at any age. Also, the worst thing about this virus the way it affects your lungs and airways, which is a lot worse than the flu.

Also to add, we all know that the season flu kills thousand of people every year, but scientists have studied seasonal flu for decades, so even though it's dangerous, we know about them, and what to expect every year. But little is known about
COVID-19, and this is the danger! So they do not really know how many deaths of may cause, like they would a season flu.

For the umpteenth time... COVID is NOT the flu. It's not related to the flu. It has nothing to do with the flu other than sharing the same symptomatology as most other respiratory illnesses. Stop spreading dangerous misinformation.

Trump was NEVER joking about the pandemic. He's actually THAT stupid that he believed what he was saying. Now he's trying to walk it back but, unfortunately for him, once again, it's on the public record. He's a liar and an imbecile. He owns this mess. See the interview with Dr. Rishi Desai on FOX:

This is the danger When you have a leader that has a cult/religious like following, then people tend to believe everything they say. That is why it was annoying that he kept on calling it "the Chinese virus" because some of his worshipers would go out there and take it out on chinese people in America, which has happend! And also what he was saying at the begining of the outbreak and how laid back he was did not help either.

A man lime trump really needs to watch what he says.

Exactly. And I just read that Jared Kushner is now heading the COVID response efforts. Jared Frigging Kushner!! WTF does he know about this? Maybe instead of relying on family and anyone who is willing to bow-down and kiss his ring Trump ought to surround himself with actual experts and be less concerned about who heaps the most praise on him. Talk about exactly the wrong guy for the job.

COVID19 was "downgraded" because it does not meet one of the criteria required to be so classified.

In the UK, a high consequence infectious disease (HCID) is defined according to the following criteria:
acute infectious disease
typically has a high case-fatality rate
may not have effective prophylaxis or treatment
often difficult to recognise and detect rapidly
ability to spread in the community and within healthcare settings
requires an enhanced individual, population and system response to ensure it is managed effectively, efficiently and safely

source

In fact there is another factor involved. It is required that all cases be sent to two locations. Not going to cut it in this situation.

Once an HCID has been confirmed by appropriate laboratory testing, cases in England should be transferred rapidly to a designated HCID Treatment Centre. Occasionally, highly probable cases may be moved to an HCID Treatment Centre before laboratory results are available.
Contact HCIDs

There are 2 principal Contact HCID Treatment Centres in England:

the Royal Free London High Level Isolation Unit (HLIU)

the Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary HLIU.

You don't think it's possible that the framers couldn't really account for a national crisis involving hundreds of millions of people in cities and in population densities completely outside of their experience or imagination?

Sure, except the only crisis "hundreds of millions" of Americans are presently facing is the manufactured crisis caused by a combination of government over reaction and a lack of social distance between the average American's head and their ass. The flu/COVID/Peking Pestilence WTF-ever yall are scared of isn't the crisis.

Is not a crisis? Seriously? So far 50 thousands dead, and almost a million bring infected. I am gathering you know no one who has been infected yet? Yes, people can get it, and it can be very mild, but also people can get it and die, no matter your age!

If you had family member die from it, would you be on here saying this stuff? I do not think so! Even lord trump knows how bad it is now!

Someone who dosent know influenza and other viruses are not the same has no ground to stand on when telling others who deserves to choose a leader
