    Numbers such as ratios of dead to survived, etc are very difficult to compare between this disease and the flu. The only real comparator is the number dead. Dead men tell all the tales.

    It is extremely contagious because it is a novel virus. Without social distancing,  we could potentially have millions and millions of people infected all at once. That's all you really need to know, but being a Trumper you might still have a hard time with basic facts.

    That’s why the flu kills ten times more than we currently have counted, year after year. It is a bigger deal than this in fact, yet we don’t care.

    ”We” being ordinary people who don’t work in health care and never hear about these outbreaks. They occur every year on the scale you are seeing now.

    It's not surprising to me that Trumpers would still not understand how this virus is dangerous because of how contagious it is. But what about car accidents? :lol:

  3. The only logical explanation for his single-minded focus on that snake oil is he has some kind of stake in it and will profit from it. Of course, his supporters will coo about how entrepreneurial he was in trying to help out.

    Yesterday in his infomercial about the drug, he even refused to allow Fauci to answer a question about its dangers. An obvious grift if I ever saw one.

    There was plenty of evidence of transmission.  That’s why all of sports shut down.  Your lame excuses and lies don’t work.

    I''ve already explained the timeline for you. Now that you've stopped being an irresponsible sociopath by spreading misinformation intended to sabotage the social isolation effort, I can safely ignore you. But be warned. Say another dangerous lie and you will suffer the wrath of bubber again.

    No, you made excuses for the mayor of New York, and some of his cabinet members.  Apparently some dangerous rhetoric you're fine with, depending who it comes from.  That's pathetic.

    I criticized them for using rhetoric before evidence of community transmission that was remarkably similar to rhetoric you used after there was community transmission. I had to even teach you what community transmission meant.

     It must take a mind-blowing amount of cognitive dissonance to criticize me for not criticizing other people for saying things that weren't even as dangerous and stupid as what you were saying yesterday. :lol:

    Yep.  Nobody's been more negligent than China.  Look it up.  Stop making excuses for bad behavior, and stop running defence for a communist dicatorship.  You're carrying water for them.

    You're getting desperate and confused. I'm the one that informed you that your BS "3.5 times more contagious than the flu" stat was ridiculous and at least flawed because it was based on Chinese data. Stop using the evil dictatorship's misrepresentations to justify spreading your own misrepresentations.

    There is no law for the above...and you project fabricated fears on Fox...you engage in wishful thinking where you control what the world must believe...lead by example...stop writing such nonsense...

    Look up how people can sue for damages if they suffer loss that resulted from negligent behaviour.

  8. You still don't know what community transmission means? I told you to go look it up 2 days ago.

    It doesn't mean local cases involving travellers who were infected elsewhere. It means evidence that people are contracting it within the community.  There was no evidence of that until March 12, which ended the NBA and NHL seasons. Many people are reluctant to shut everything down until there is evidence of that, which makes sense. 

    So, again, quit talking about things you know nothing about when it comes to infectious diseases. I can't monitor you all the time.

    I like that you put me on the same level as the mayor of the largest city in North America.  I’m flattered!

    No. He stopped jeopardizing the social distancing effort when he learned better after it began spreading in the community. You still are doing it even though you must know better by now.

    As I already stated in an earlier post, it’s three times more deadly than the flu.  About 1.5% compared to about .5%.  Much lower in people under 60, and higher in people over 60.

    That is true under ideal social distancing conditions where the hospital is not overwhelmed. The important point you ignore and which makes your posts so dangerous is you fail to mention how much more contagious it is. Do you do that because you don't know any better or because you're an irresponsible sociopath?

  11. The death rate is dependent on many factors. It balloons when there aren't enough respirators. They run out of respirators when there is insufficient social distancing. When idiots and incompetent presidents downplay the need for social distancing, you get what you are about to watch in the U.S. the next 2 weeks.

    No it’s not.  The latest studies suggest a significant amount of people can get the virus but exhibit little to no symptoms.  One of the recent Imperial College studies.

    The latest studies? That's been the case since it materialized in Wuhan. That also doesn't diminish the potential death rate, which is overwhelming compared to the potential death rate of the common flu. Just quit spreading misinformation on this topic. Your misinformation on other topics is usually not so potentially fatal, so it's more tolerable. But on this you should be more careful.

    Yes, including New York's government and members of the mainstream media!

    Among the very worst are the people going on the Internet and spreading dangerous misinformation like how it's important to keep deaths from the common flu in mind because this virus had only yet killed a comparable number. How could anyone still be completely ignorant of its potential for widespread transmission?

    We can forgive those who wanted to refrain from shutting everything down before there was  evidence of community transmission. We will likely forgive those who are now refraining from extremely strict quarantine regulations like in France, even though there is clear evidence of community transmission happening right now. This is because we know shutting everything down is an extreme measure with terrible consequences.

    But spewing dangerous misinformation for no rational reason is the worst. Just stupid and unforgivable.

    This is even getting stupider by the minute. As if a family cannot go out on a walk together? We all have to live in the same house, can't quarantine from your family. The average family unit is 4 people. That's why in some areas they put the "group" limit at no more than 5 people, to accommodate families.

    Duh...what about families with more than five people?

    Except way more deadly and contagious than the flu.

    Most concerning is its novel status makes massive simultaneous infection not only possible but difficult to prevent. That's why uninformed people and presidents who downplay the virus are dangerous and should always be challenged.
