NY state up to 59.4% of total cases. 10K+ more than yesterday.

Breaking news out of Bismarck...

In response to seeing the numbers coming in out of New York, Governor Doug Burgum has called up the National Guard to seal off Reeder in order to safeguard the town’s residens.

Go ahead. Looks like that's where the most stringei containment measures obviously need to be.

Well lockdown starts tonight at 8.  Only leave the house for essential purposes, though I think people can walk outside if they stay away from other people.  No gatherings of any size allowed.

CNN reports that Russia is handling the coronavirus well...

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/03/21/europe/putin-coronavirus-russia-intl/index.html
 

...and we’ve officially jumped the shark.

Putin shut down the 2,600 mile border with China on January 30th.  Not long afterward, Trump wants to ban flights to the US from China.  Coincidence?  Get Stetler and Acosta on it!

THIS is CNN.  

Now that post made me laugh.

It’s very sad that both political party’s and the media try to turn everything into a political advantage.  Disgusting. 

I find the media to be worst of all.  They should be impartial and present just the facts.  Unfortunately a very large part have an agenda and will distort or present the facts that bolster their viewpoint and ignore everything else.  That has led to a huge polarization in this country.  

The fact that all of this is happening in an election year just magnifies the reaction.  

Ironically, I find Bloomberg, of all TV news networks, to be the most palatable.

What is disturbing is how the media see this event, as it does with most things, through a political lens.  It is hard to find news that is not sensationalized, left or right.

Wrong again.  Hannity was referring to the "new hoax" Trump described in his rally speech in South Carolina I believe it was, at the end of February.  You know, the one we've been talking about on here ad nauseum where the left spun Trump's words, and claimed he called the corona virus itself, a hoax.  

Thanks for posting; this article is yet another perfect example of the left spinning a story, and then spinning comments made about that story.  Hopefully some start to see the light; although I doubt it.     

Right before, Hannity was talking about how the media is scaring people and this virus won't kill 99% of people. But those with other illnesses may be affected.

Looks like the experts might be wrong.

"Two weeks til we are Italy"

Quote

The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus.

On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity - many had two or three,” he says.

Lol I generally don't consider 53 to be elderly.  There's no denying that there is anecdotal support for the med.

Going to be a run on Cream of Wheat if that's the case.

If you double the numbers in the USA to "become italy" you see only 800 deaths vs 5,476.

First confirmed case of wrongful fearmongering.

Despite the limitations of this study, in the absence of any effective treatment, in this urgent situation, this Plaquenil and Azithromycin combination therapy should be given to patients with COVID-19 as a treatment option,” Ying Zhang, a professor of microbiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, wrote in an email. “For now, there is no time to wait.”

No one is saying that hydroxychloroquine and azith in combo, or hydroxychloroquine alone shouldn't be considered. Treatment isn't one size fits all and needs to be assessed on a case by case basis.  There are side effects of those medications, all the more so when used in combination, that could cause more harm than good in certain patients.

5x or 6x would be better comparison.
