I went unmasked to help my daughter plant ghost peppers today. My friend came too. As did my son. We might be an epicenter.

Germany may have been more ready for this thing or mobilized more quickly than the other nations. I don't know.

A note on testing: Germany has done better in cases per million of population and way, way, better in deaths per (only 100)...Yet in testing, their tests per million (42,923) are lower than ours (43,904). France has much fewer tests per million (about 21,000) and yet their cases and deaths per, as lower than may other European countries.I don't think testing is the beat all and end all it's cracked up to be.And once you get sick in Germany or America, your chances of survival are much higher than in a lot of places event though America's testing isn't as prevalent.

The prevalence of this condition in nursing homes is a BIG thing. Gotta test those people, and infected people s/b removed.


Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.

Agree totally.
My 93 year old step-mother was in a rehab center in California after a fracture. All I could think about was to get her out of there. But I was half a continent away.
Unlike Ohio, CA has not made the infection rates per institution public.
(Governor DeWine has made it mandatory that all stats be public here. You wonder why I like a conservative Republican?)
I still like his statement regarding priorities for emergency equipment. "These are not decisions that politicians should make."
She was able to get home okay.
Other places by their very nature foster the spread. Prisons. Homeless shelters. Anti-lockdown rallies.
Anyway. There are obviously best practices. But I am not a health specialist. So all I can say is that where clear cases of incompetence and ignorance of science exist, I would prefer that other people were in charge.

Only domestically. They kept it open to international travel, knowing that it was the hub of the virus. IOW, they were protecting their people, but they were perfectly willing to spread teh virus around the world.

Eight days later, President Trump banned incoming travel from China, a ban he later extended to European countries.

(January also saw the president declare a public health emergency and form his task force.)

Let's compare Florida and New York. Florida has about 21 million people, New York about 19.5 million. Both have densely populated areas and sparsely populated areas. Florida has a LOT of elderly people. The old Florida resident who retired there from up north is almost a stereotype.

Florida targeted the shutdowns to protect the vulnerable, and it began later and ended sooner. Florida has had many fewer COVID cases, in terms of incidence, deaths, and rate, than New York.

Yet they locked down the entire state because of a high incidence in four counties around Detroit and seven or eight counties in Greater New York.

New York has 62 counties. Eight of them are heavily infected. So Cuomo locked down the whole state. A hospital ship was sent to him, the Javits Center was turned into a hospital, and a field hospital was built in Central Park. They went mostly unused, while Cuomo sent infected people into the nursing homes.

The governor of Michigan shut down everything, keeps extending it every time people protest, and banned sales of carpet, paint, and seeds. And traveling to your second home, in more rural areas.

The reason most of Italy's cases were in the north is that they have a busy fashion industry in the northern part of the country which uses a lot of Chinese workers. Many of them went back to China to celebrate the lunar New Year, and they unknowingly brought the virus back with them.

Sunlight is the best thing for the virus. It provides UV light, which is harmful to viruses, and Vitamin D.
