Law of unintended consequences: Quarantines can kill people

Do I believe that Trump was more concerned about his election chances than any amount of deaths that could be forthcoming from an unknown virus, well pretty obvious that is the case. Just as much as his dumb ass thinking he is going to “reopen” the government 2 weeks from now. That won’t be happening either btw I don’t believe.

What do you know about creating accurate test kits for a virus that had never existed in humans before? What would youre expertise have lead you to do better? Its easy to sit there and tell professional scientists and medics that they should do better and work faster. It doesn’t fix anything though, like they are doing.
Though not to your satisfaction.

That wasnt what Trump or you claimed. You both said millions of testkits were going out a almost a month ago

I’ve said that from the beginning.

The millions includes those being produced now by the private sector.

The CDC has and has always had very limited production and testing capability.

Never in our history as the CDC tried to ramp up a new test for a new disease that has never been seen before in such a short time.

You were claiming a million of the CDC testkits went out before the private companies ever got involved. They didnt.

You claimed anyone who needed a test could get a test and that’s still not true almost a month later

Not all at once and not overnight. Their capability to produce them has always been Limited.

Each of the kits can process 500 patient samples. That’s how you get to a million.

That’s not what you were claiming at the time. You said that anyone who needed a test could get one. That wasn’t even remotely true. Still isn’t

Two completely separate issues. And no I never said anyone who wanted to get one to get tested. Never ever anywhere.

It’s not there job to give medical recommendations…it was to warn him it was coming here and could be a massive problem…

Ooooooo he went there girlfriend!

The new infection rate does drop quickly.

Easter is possible and I look forward to Trump being right yet again.

Pray for a resurrection Sunday lifting of US quarantine. How appropriate. How symbolic.

I am sure there will be placed that will be restricted like CA LA NJ NY…most everywhere else looks promising.

Ave if it was true, then why did he wait until March 13 to declare a national emergency?

So if Trump is incompetent . . then WHO (the so called experts) must be far more incompetent.

That not what I said you said. You mistakenly stated multiple times that anyone who needs a test can get one. That wasnt even close to being true 3 weeks ago and it’s not true now

That would make Trump at fault for the delay in testing seeing that he didnt declare a National Emergency until March 13th. Why did he wait so long if so much was dependent on it?

Both statements can be true.

China was more incompatant than Trump for not being truthful and not doing more to stop the spread.
