how is he wrong? she can get one when they have one.

I still wish to know what you think gives her any advantage by getting a test, other than adding her name to a list if she tested positive.
He's wrong because she can't the test even though Orange Jesus said she could.

The advantage is that if she knows she has the virus, she can isolate, not infect anyone else, and get medical help.
so she needs a test to isolate herself? isn't that her responsibility? It would be mine. she can go back today and get tested.
She could die from it.

Orange Jesus said she could get tested. But she can't. Millions can't.

Good leadership doesn't lie and bullshit in times of crisis, like Trump has been.
Does not being able to test at the time prevents her to self-quarantine?

Have you tested?

Trump Now Claims He Always Knew the Coronavirus Would Be a Pandemic


"For weeks, President Trump has minimized the coronavirus, mocked concern about it and treated the risk from it cavalierly. On Tuesday he took to the White House lectern and made a remarkable assertion: He knew it was a pandemic all along."

If he knew this virus was going to be a global pandemic long before anyone else did -- why was his response so behind the curve?? Why was he saying just a few days ago that no one saw this coming??

If he believes this isn't really a big deal like he had been claiming, why is he so weak that he will change his opinion based on what the 'liberals" think??

And to add insult to conservative injury, why are Trump and other prominent republicans (like the last guy the GOP nominated to be president) sounding like democrat socialists and advocating for communist solutions like giving money to everyday workers and lazy bums instead of giving that money to corporations as God commanded??
That is interesting. He said he "always knew" but yesterday he said that "nobody knew it would get this bad" and that's why he dithered for two months.

It changes from minute to minute doesn't it? :rolleyes:

Why do regressive morons think that any large scale government response is “socialism”?

He’s doing a much better job than the Hussein did with little old H1N1, and he is doing way better than all the European leaders have done.

He called for travel bans when you snowflakes cried,”racist!”
Now semi-socialist Europe is a hotbed for the virus and the US as a whole has less cases than France.

There is no preventing it at this point from getting everywhere, but at least President Trump slowed it down for us so it didn’t hit us like Italy and Europe.
He's doing better than Obama? At this same point during the spread of Swine flu, there are 2½ times more deaths now than there were then.
Swine flu wasn’t nearly as contagious or deadly. And the Hussein didn’t declare a national emergency until 1000 Americans were dead. Now go pound sand, dolt.
The lie that keeps on giving ^ :rolleyes:

Few sickened when Obama declared 2009 flu a health emergency

"Anyone that needs a test gets a test. They're there."


Feeling sick on Friday, Rachael Willingham went to the doctor, who gave her an order for the new coronavirus test and sent her to a mobile clinic the Colorado health department had set up.

When she arrived at 9:45 a.m., a half-dozen police officers were blocking the entrance. She returned to the clinic that afternoon, but was told testing was over for the day.

Ms. Willingham called a number for the state health department and was told to come back Saturday at noon. She did, only to find testing had been moved to the Denver Coliseum. When she got to the stadium, she waited in a line of hundreds of cars for almost two hours, only to be turned away again with no explanation.

“It’s making this worse,” the 29-year-old said of the confusion over testing. “It’s contributing greatly to the sense of fear.”

As cases of Covid-19 have exploded across the U.S., state and local governments are taking on the task of testing for the coronavirus that causes it—and they have been quickly overwhelmed. Slowed by equipment shortages and struggling to keep pace, officials have set up a chaotic patchwork of testing sites, with access varying wildly from one place to another. Now some states and counties are pulling back, using their limited resources to test only the most vulnerable.​

Coronavirus Testing Chaos Across America
did she think she'd get treatment? If she was sick, why didn't she ask her doctor how to get better? Why did a test come to mind? it isn't a fking cure you idiots.

So let me ask you, should she isolate herself? you bet. Should she seek medication? you bet. if she got the test, would those two items change?

Come on, the amount of stupid is truly unreal.

perhaps she just wanted her name to be added to the count? maybe, still doesn't stop her from doing the two things I stated.
Not much changes when you test. If you are negative, you can still get it and need to Social distance. If you are positive there is no cure and you are treated exactly the same for your symptoms. The only difference is you self isolate, which you can do if you can’t get a test.
yep. I'm still wondering why these fks are so confused by that.

Debunked now for the 767th time, dickhead

CLAIM: President Barack Obama waited until October 2009 to declare a national health emergency amid the H1N1 pandemic after 20,000 people in the U.S. were hospitalized and more than 1,000 had died.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. Obama declared a public health emergency in April 2009, after roughly 20 cases of the flu strain, more commonly known as swine flu, emerged. He declared a national emergency in October 2009.

Are you saying NBC lied?

You don’t seem to know the difference between a “health emergency” and a “national emergency”.

In reality, it was far more contagious. But true, less deadly.
Not so fast. They're both contagious at the same level. H1N1 was less deadly, correct. Let's see... we had far lees deadly virus, and still had 12,400 dead people.

I'm not saying it was needed, because vaccines already existed in some form, but if the same measures were taken for H1N1 as for corona virus, would we have less dead?

History will judge Trump to unprepared and asleep a the wheel. His blustering and promotions of misinformation and lies during the early stages of the coronavirus crisis can not be ignored or covered up. It will be not that Governors, mayors, and Congress had to push and pry Trump into acting Presidential and coming to grips with the crisis. Even at this late date, he is acting immaturely and blaming others for his failures.

Hmm, nobody's expert on Covid-19, but you. Scientists don’t know everything about it yet. In this case, they’re just beginning their research. In the absence of hard data, all we have are theories as mere hypotheses. Since you know everything (that isn't so), please tell us, how can you be prepared for something that doesn't exist?

Scientists are scrambling to find adequate way to stop spreading of the virus. Different countries are taking different measures, why? Because, beside isolation, nobody knows how to deal with it.

Chinese forced population containment, along with a home medical visit every two days. Those suspected of being infected were taken by force to hospital, or were block from exiting their homes.
The WHO advocates the confinement of the population, without medical visits at home. They assume that children become healthy carriers of the disease and infect grandparents in whom the disease can develop acutely.
Swedes are trying something different. They consider that only the elderly need to be protected and that there is no evidence that the disease is spread by children. They are therefore only confining the elderly and not closing down schools or businesses.

Since Covid-19 is a new thing, and nobody knew about it until recently, nobody was prepared for it, including US. So again, how we could be prepared for something that Chinese were hiding for months and we didn't know it existed?

Is there a snippet from a particular video?
I trust The New York Slimes like I trust a rattlesnake.
This explains all of your posts, i.e. you believe Limbaugh, Hannity and Trump&Co., and shut out all other sources of news.
I hate Limbaugh.
Hannity isn’t all that bright.
I like Tucker, Ingraham and Steve Hilton.
Anything else you’d like to know.

Oh yeah...
MSLesbian and CNN are a clown show.

No, they're not contagious at the same level. After 54 days since the first case detected in the U.S., there were nearly 3 times as many H1N1 cases as there are COVID-19 cases...

Except, H1N1 could've been detected almost as soon as it started, while for coronavirus (that is new virus) kits had to be developed.

Still, these are the numbers we have. Saying they are equally contagious is pure speculation.
