Covid-19

Recommended Posts

I think many if not all of us are worried about the economy, more from the standpoint of people losing jobs and the impact on small businesses. However those comments by Patrick are delusional. Yeah, everybody's RRSP or TFSA is down, who gives a **** about that right now?

India going on complete lockdown for 21 days: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-india-modi/modi-puts-all-of-india-under-lockdown-for-21-days-to-fight-coronavirus-idUSKBN21B2BW

Quote

MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday the government would impose a nationwide lockdown from midnight for 21 days to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

“There will be a total ban on venturing out of your homes,” Modi said in a televised address.

That's roughly 1.3 billion people. Incredible.

As crappy as this is for the patient and his SO's, we are doing very well, particularly compared to our neighbour to the west.

India is uniquely vulnerable- high population density, and a minimal public heathcare system.

I would say they might be a little more prepared for this. Swine flu hit them really hard and they have experience in dealing with high volumes of sick people.

Trump could take lessons from this guy.  Future president Cuomo 

 

Cuomo is one of the people that Trump is resentful of and furious with for upstaging him, and for good reason. Cuomo is caring, intelligent and well-spoken, doing what needs to be done without braggadocio. Everything Trump ought to be be has no idea or inclination to be.

Ya but don't vote for her. 

As opposed to voting for the alternative- Trump? A man who has declared bankruptcy 4 times, has five children with 4 different women and cheated on each of them, has had 24 sexual assault allegations leveled against him, and praised neo-nazis as "fine people"? Not to mention that he has been documented as lying some 15,000 times since being in office?

You're describing the choice of the religious right and economic conservatives and tough on crime republicans.  Obviously.

Trump during FOX interview, today:

"You are going to lose a number of people to the flu. But you are going to lose more people by putting a country into a massive recession or depression.

"You're going to lose people. You are going to have suicides by the thousands...You're going to have instability."

Later in the interview:

"Depression causes death and a lot of problems. "Speaking about opening the country up again, Trump said: "I would love to have it opened by Easter."
