    My state is doing fine....don't need infected zombies from Ontario crossing the border.

    Fine? It's skyrocketing with hundreds of new cases a day. That means it's spreading in the community still. Know how many new cases in Manitoba (which is a province on the other side of the fortunately closed border) we have this week? Less than 10. How many today? None. The number of people recovered is higher than the active caseload. That's what it looks like when it's competently managed. We're actually able to look at lifting many restrictions soon and will likely be among the first to do so. But our PM wasn't calling it a hoax in February,  so that's probably the difference.

    New York and Michigan are showing significant declines in cases and hospitalizations.  I’m fact, New York is now discharging more people than they’re admitting.  South Dakota has barely any cases and only 7 deaths total.  It’s a non factor. 

    South Dakota is now a hotspot. Nearly a 1000 new cases just this week because of their halfwit governor.  You should feel shame that you're still spreading misinformation about this virus because of your insane loyalty to the GOP death cult.

    I find it interesting that it's Trump that's pining for the border to re-open. No Canadian leader is all that eager right now. 

    Especially considering the current state of Michigan and New York. 

    Not to mention South Dakota. It's a stark contrast at the border here in Manitoba where our Conservative government took it seriously early on and we literally have a handful of new cases this week and the number of active cases is steadily declining. In South Dakota, they've had hundreds and hundreds of new cases because their leadership took the White House advice to downplay and try and ignore it. North Dakota is a little better off at more than 10 times the cases per capita compared to Manitoba, but still a shitshow of bad leadership.

    What's with this crap about keeping the lights on? Every time I come in to work, every single light is on in the building.

    Keeps people who don't wash their hands from infecting the light switches and transmitting the virus to others. Are you washing your hands?

    I know what your problem is now? You appear to be suffering from what is now being called CVS(Covid Virus syndrome). As I have said here many times. I do not know of anyone, family or friends, who have gotten this "highly contagious" hoax of a virus. But I will bet that you know dozens who have, right? I await! 

    No, in Manitoba we have a competent Conservative government that took this seriously from the start and now we are seeing fewer active cases every day.

    No, that’s incorrect.  Given the numbers, infections could be multiples worse if infected peoples were allowed to enter the country.  Or are you suggesting that travel from Europe and China should resume?

    I'm saying that arguing that the chain link held back some of the water is kind of pointless when the water is spreading everywhere anyway.

     There’d be even more cases of the virus had hundreds of thousands of people from infected countries been allowed to travel to the United States.  In March and April.

    Given numbers indicate the U.S. is the worst shitshow on the planet in terms of the propagation of this virus so far, and Canada is mainly suffering because of its proximity to that shitshow, it's hard to imagine it could have been more poorly managed. But yes, perhaps it could have been.

    There was nothing arbitrary about the travel restrictions.  And of course they work to some extent.  It’s another way of practicing mitigation, the furthest end of social distancing.  Don’t let your hatred for Trump get in the way of logic and reason.  

    Cutting off travel from Europe but not the UK is arbitrary. And useless, as proven by the number of U.S. cases today.

    Bet anything that you switch the topic.

    Weak, arbitrary travel bans are completely useless. It's like making a dyke out of chain link fence. If you're serious,  you suspend all international travel and put everyone coming in in quarantine for 2 weeks. 

    Only a few countries responded appropriately and the U.S. and Canada aren't among them.

      The WHO was grossly irresponsible.  Their actions had a influence on how other countries around the world responded to the virus.  Especially Europe.

    "The WHO can only react to the data it's given, and when you go back and look at the timeline, it wasn't until, I think, almost the middle of January that China reported that there was human-to-human transmission." - Dr. Deborah Birx

    I don't need to look any smarter BubberMIley. That is your problem.

    I see I hurt your feelings by explaining to you how wrong you are again. One day maybe you'll even say something  you will be able to back up and defend, rather than just resort to insults because you feel humiliated 

    I'm just left wondering if anyone is really stupid enough to think it's not highly contagious. :lol:

    Nope.  You’re lying.  Flat out lying.  Trump didn’t disassemble anything, that’s been fact-checked and debunked.  However

    After the swine flu epidemic in 2009, a safety-equipment industry association and a federally sponsored task force both recommended that depleted supplies of N95 respirator masks, which filter out airborne particles, be replenished by the stockpile, which is maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

    That didn’t happen, according to Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Assn.

    I assume you didn't cite the "debunking" because it doesn't exist and you know that.

    You have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about, BubberMiley which is no surprise.

    Highly contagious you say? Doesn’t that take away your concern about the death ratio, since the number of dead are known and the more people who have it, the lower the percentage who get it and die.

    The virus is bad enough, despite being similar to influenza but the question is why don’t we shut the planet down for it. Because shutting down everything only provides a minimal return, compared to more selective but less socially harmful measures than this nonsense.

    The planet is shut down because it's highly contagious. The more people get it at once, the higher the death rate because hospitals become overwhelmed. You have a choice: economic collapse with thousands of deaths, or economic collapse with millions of deaths.

    You can continue to blather nonsensical misinformation from last month's FoxNews reports, but it doesn't make you look any smarter.
