Canada is getting crushed too. We lost massive jobs and Ontario lost over 40% of all jobs alone, even as the Premier tries to assure us our horse and buggy economy will recover.

We were already in dire straits before this virus, and they has made it so that people who apply for help must have made a MINIMUM in earnings, whereas the U.S uses a MAXIMUM ($99k). This means we have about 3-4x more people in desperate need in Canada with no option, they will just lose their homes, be evicted, not find work.

In an already destroyed economy this is horrible. Our leaders have told us to expect this to be the norm for at least a year! Meaning, we will have full blown communism in place while you are going back to work and crushing the global economies again.

Trump deserves some credit. If you want to place blame on a virus that came from Communist China, blame the Governor or Mayor of NY. If you don't think they are to blame, how is Trump?
Look at New Zealand, only one death from Coronavirus. Why can't the United States protect its people as well as New Zealand has protected its people?
You don't seem to be interested in the facts......

1. Today ==> 2,000 deaths
2. New York + New Jersey ==> 1,000 deaths
3. Michigan ==> 200 deaths.
4. Penn + Con + Mass = 275 deaths.

75% of those deaths are in five states and it has pretty much been that way since we started (not always Mich...but NY & NJ for sure).

That leaves 500 for the rest of the country.

Many (like 30+) are still below 100 total deaths

Nobody in the west cares.

Especially not Wyoming (0 deaths).

So, blame it on Cuomo, De Blahzio and the wench from Michigan.
Its the President's job to shut down foreign travel which he failed to do. The outbreak in New York came from people traveling from Europe to New York. That's why the President should have shut down all foreign travel, not just travel from China. Also the northeast has greater population density which plays a role is spreading this thing further. New York City is the hub for world travel, then combined with the population density within 300 miles of New York City and that explains the problem. Only way to prevent that is to STOP foreign travel EARLY.

That's why JAPAN, TAIWAN, SINGAPORE and SOUTH KOREA are doing so well relative to the United States despite their greater population densities. Trump needed to shut down foreign Travel early, like late January. If he had, we could be in the same situation as TAIWAN right now.
International travel has not hurt Cali.

International travel has not hurt D.C.

International travel has not hurt a lot of other places.

The leaders of New York (AS HAS BEEN WIDELY SHOWN) purposely told people to get out and party after they were warned.

The people of New York listened.

The leaders of New York caught on.

The people of New York didn't listen.

They just barely shut down public parks.

So, you can whine all you want about Trump.

New York is dying because of others.

Time to climb out of your PMSNBC bubble and come to grips with reality.
The local cities and states don't have to do anything when the President shuts down all international travel. Its what Taiwan did at the start and THEY NEVER HAD TO LOCKDOWN ANYTHING WITHIN TAIWAN. WHY? They were able to limit the amount of virus that penetrated the country and then had enough Testing and contact tracing ready to go to isolate the virus in any place it did penetrate. Taiwan's early action has allowed people there to continue normal life. Non-essential business's are open, children are going to school. We had an opportunity to be like Taiwan, but TRUMP missed the boat.

It was Donald Trump and FOX NEWS that made fun of the virus and its threat all month long during February.

Coronavirus Becomes Leading Cause of Death in U.S.

COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, is now the deadliest disease in the United States, killing more people per day than cancer or heart disease.

According to a graph published Tuesday by Dr. Maria Danilychev, who practices in San Diego, COVID-19 is the cause of 1,970 deaths in the U.S. per day.

The graph uses data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the daily average causes of death and compares them to COVID-19 statistics from Worldometers.info.


DEATHS FROM CORONAVIRUS:

UNITED STATES:
16,074

JAPAN: 94

SOUTH KOREA: 204

AUSTRALIA: 51

SINGAPORE: 6

TAIWAN: 5

NEW ZEALAND: 1

You can see from the death totals for the different first world countries above how Donald Trump has FAILED to protect the American people from this Pathogen! It the United States were doing as well as New Zealand in protecting the public from this Pathogen, the United States would have less than 100 deaths, not over 16,000!
What would have made you happy? Shut down all air travel and businesses beginning in January? Your darling New York Governor wanted no part of a quarantine and most other US governors would have agreed. Regular flu has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans. But THIS one is different because Trump is President.
The flu kills 10,000 Americans a year. Covid-19 has managed to kill 20,000 in a matter of weeks.

That's a huge difference. At this rate we could be at six digit deaths by December.

It is NOT like the flu.
There are differences and similarities to the flu. It is more contagious than the flu especially in certain population dense cities and it attacks primarily old and weak people and virtually leaves young people untouched. The flu attacks people of all ages including children.

You are ignoring the basic fact that the Presidents own Corona Virus medical advisors including Dr. Fauci were in agreement that the virus posed little threat to us. That was because Xi Jinping DELIBERATELY LIED ABOUT RAPID HUMAN TO HUMAN TRANSMISSION. Of course the reason you continue to ignore this basic fact is it is the only way you can blame Trump which is always what you and other Trump haters do. You start with the conclusion "IT'S TRUMPS FAULT!" and then piece together your story to make that conclusion true in your minds.

As for Europe, there are only 14 countries in Europe that have more infections per capita than the United States.
We're supposed to be impressed by that questionable statistic?? Don't think so... 14 countries is MOST of Europe... Or didn't you know that? And it depends WHICH countries those are. 6 or 7 of them are SMALLER than 30 or 40 of our cities...
