Some countries such as Brazil have taken a not for us approach to virus based restrictions. President of rough and tumble Belarus has stated , " It's better to die onyour feet than die on your knees". Ironically this could be a more practical approach as it's thought that the virus may just run its course faster if unchecked by lockdown policies. Trump should take up this approach.
Since disease should cull unproductive pats of the population the stock market should be booming. Good to see Hallmark Channel is back to running non - stop Christmas movies. A return yo sanity.

This disease presents so many unanswered questions it is in a class by itself : are infected/recovered people immune ?, if numbers of official new infections go way way down will they explode when things go back to normal, will virus mutate and if so into what ?, will virus run its course in next month or two as does the flu, or maybe burn out in hot weather ?, will it return as does the flu in the fall, how long can a lockdown stay in place, how long will it take until places that have little concern be badly infected, or will they ever ?, how many people in the US will eventually be infected, if everyone then deaths will top 3 million, but will it matter ?, is malaria drug going to be a game changer or just a help ?, will a cure be found, and if so when ? will Orange genius get sick , if he does will he soldier through or go into retreat, if go back to normal is a disaster what happens then ? will the public finally have enough of this and death toll in millions will be of less interest than stocks and baseball as long as it's just old and sick people ?

Letting things just run as opposed to restrictions is not as simple a choice as it might seem. Removing all restrictions or staying for a long period in lockdown would probably result in the same number of cases and deaths but could have the mess play itself out quicker but possibility of warm weather stopping the virus argues for long period of restrictions.Orange genius is easily the most entertaining president to hear in a press conference, he's comic relief .His change from as recently as Saturday when he was predicting an explosive recovery in 4th quarter GDP to the dire predictions of many deaths and the virus lasting 'till year's end or longer is a big turn around and will limit his attempts to assure is backers that great days are just around the corner.
Makes me think of the depression which was largely created by the Federal government by allowing 90 % margin on the stock market and its failure to insure bank accounts. Depression never really ended, WW 2 began.

I was wrong about Orange Genius not trumpeting how great everything will be very soon down the road. Latest briefing had him outdoing Roosevelt's , ' nothing to fear " malarky.

Party docs just take it for granted recovered virus individuals will have immunity...not so sure mutation will not be what occurs. instead.
For Trump and company the theme was the next three weeks will be terrible then it's back to business. Overall effect was like a debate with only one side speaking or a Trump rally. Or a sham . The amount of money being given to business is what this was about. Government deficit spending worked after the war but then there was idle production turned to war production turned to consumer production for huge backed up demand and a lot of the long standing deficit problems of today. He may not have command of language but what a bull shitter.There was more about how great things will be in a short while than what's on the ground now.
I really don't have any strong views on how this will all play out, circumstances have caused me to change my thoughts in some areas, but in these briefings Trump is less the odious liar than the host of a kid's happy times TV show.

On Wednesday it was three / four weeks of tough times followed quickly by a flattening of the number of infections curve to zero new infections. Sounded exactly like the 15 infections going to zero, everybody's getting better of about a month ago.
New York and the New Jersey counties close to Manhattan have less than 5 % of the country's population and 50 % of reported cases.
There are a number of " good " possibilities as to what will happen to the virus, but as yet not anything that's actually happening.
Key areas to watch : immunity or mutations, hot weather rescue , vaccines.
Trump's repeated declarations that country will come out of this stronger than ever make his briefings part comedy, part campaign.

A highlight of the Wednesday briefing was Trump's idea to reinstate the corporate lunch tax writeoff at restaurants as restaurants will have a tough time when this is over ? Sucker can't open his mouth for long without dishing up another business giveaway.
Does not look like anything of interest will be on deck about cases/deaths for some time . Just more of the same for maybe 6 - 8 weeks until voices start asking for the country to be open for business again.
Middle parts of America have hardly been touched as yet. Unless people from the NY area start going to the heartland ( highly unlikely ) just what will happen there and when is anybody's guess.
The briefings remind me of dictatorship get togethers. Only thing missing is the audience that just can't stop clapping. The feel of HBO's Plot To Destroy America and Trump Times is not all that different with Big Business replacing out and out government control.

I was looking at the White house charts for the growth and dying off of the virus. Nice and symmetrical. According to predictions virus will be all but gone by June. Don't buy it . Italy's graph is already well into the down side. Time will quickly tell how far down the numbers go, A deviation in Ital's chart will probably happen in the US numbers. NY's numbers are exploding.

The projected 100,000 - 200, 000 US deaths may be a reasonable estimate but 10 x that amount would be insignificant in the big picture. Sick old people are going to die of this or that anyway. To get out of the " big wow " range the number would have to be eight figures but given the odd, all or nothing nature of the virus, that is not likely to happen as nothing is mostly what it is.

Letting things just run as opposed to restrictions is not as simple a choice as it might seem. Removing all restrictions or staying for a long period in lockdown would probably result in the same number of cases and deaths but could have the mess play itself out quicker but possibility of warm weather stopping the virus argues for long period of restrictions.Orange genius is easily the most entertaining president to hear in a press conference, he's comic relief .His change from as recently as Saturday when he was predicting an explosive recovery in 4th quarter GDP to the dire predictions of many deaths and the virus lasting 'till year's end or longer is a big turn around and will limit his attempts to assure is backers that great days are just around the corner.
Makes me think of the depression which was largely created by the Federal government by allowing 90 % margin on the stock market and its failure to insure bank accounts. Depression never really ended, WW 2 began.
I was wrong about Orange Genius not trumpeting how great everything will be very soon down the road. Latest briefing had him outdoing Roosevelt's , ' nothing to fear " malarky. Pence was repeatedly asked about people without insurance and medical costs. He and Trumpet dodged the questions which is par for the course . Party docs just take it for granted recovered virus individuals will have immunity...not so sure mutation will not be what occurs. instead.
For Trump and company the theme was the next three weeks will be terrible then it's back to business. Overall effect was like a debate with only one side speaking or a Trump rally. Or a sham . The amount of money being given to business is what this was about. Government deficit spending worked after the war but then there was idle production turned to war production turned to consumer production for huge backed up demand and a lot of the long standing deficit problems of today. He may not have command of language but what a bull shitter.There was more about how great things will be in a short while than what's on the ground now.
I really don't have any strong views on how this will all play out, circumstances have caused me to change my thoughts in some areas, but in these briefings Trump is less the odious liar than the host of a kid's happy times TV show.
Trump's Wednesday briefing seemed completely at odds with the prior day's bad news . On Wednesday it was three / four weeks of tough times followed quickly by a flattening of the number of infections curve to zero new infections. Sounded exactly like the 15 infections going to zero, everybody's getting better of about a month ago.
New York and the New Jersey counties close to Manhattan have less than 5 % of the country's population and 50 % of reported cases.
There are a number of " good " possibilities as to what will happen to the virus, but as yet not anything that's actually happening.
Key areas to watch : immunity or mutations, hot weather rescue , vaccines.
Trump's repeated declarations that country will come out of this stronger than ever make his briefings part comedy, part campaign.
A highlight of the Wednesday briefing was Trump's idea to reinstate the corporate lunch tax writeoff at restaurants as restaurants will have a tough time when this is over ? Sucker can't open his mouth for long without dishing up another business giveaway.
Does not look like anything of interest will be on deck about cases/deaths for some time . Just more of the same for maybe 6 - 8 weeks until voices start asking for the country to be open for business again.
Middle parts of America have hardly been touched as yet. Unless people from the NY area start going to the heartland ( highly unlikely ) just what will happen there and when is anybody's guess.
The briefings remind me of dictatorship get togethers. Only thing missing is the audience that just can't stop clapping. The feel of HBO's Plot To Destroy America and Trump Times is not all that different with Big Business replacing out and out government control.
I was looking at the White house charts for the growth and dying off of the virus. Nice and symmetrical. According to predictions virus will be all but gone by June. Don't buy it . Italy's graph is already well into the down side. Time will quickly tell how far down the numbers go, A deviation in Ital's chart will probably happen in the US numbers. NY's numbers are exploding.
The projected 100,000 - 200, 000 US deaths may be a reasonable estimate but 10 x that amount would be insignificant in the big picture. Sick old people are going to die of this or that anyway. To get out of the " big wow " range the number would have to be eight figures but given the odd, all or nothing nature of the virus, that is not likely to happen as nothing is mostly what it is.
Tho I'm not an immunologist I see holes in the graphs of anticipated course of the disease. From what I've found in pandemic phase graphs the results are based on populations with interactive members. The US and Italian situations are artificial lockdown ones which have the weakness of many people coming together during grocery shopping. I see this as a different landscape from standard models. Add to this that Chin - V is highly contagious with asymptomatic carries and a several day period of an absence of symptoms. Add to this ASAP the ban on public gathering will be lifted and the entire system is completely changed.
As I see it the geniuses' projections are going to fly apart big time. Trump will be the perfect head man to explain this to John Q with his pet docs drawing up new prognoses much like the change from 15 to zero and then it's 200,000 hocus pocus.

Some countries such as Brazil have taken a not for us approach to virus based restrictions. President of rough and tumble Belarus has stated , " It's better to die onyour feet than die on your knees". Ironically this could be a more practical approach as it's thought that the virus may just run its course faster if unchecked by lockdown policies. Trump should take up this approach.
Since disease should cull unproductive pats of the population the stock market should be booming. Good to see Hallmark Channel is back to running non - stop Christmas movies. A return yo sanity.
This disease presents so many unanswered questions it is in a class by itself : are infected/recovered people immune ?, if numbers of official new infections go way way down will they explode when things go back to normal, will virus mutate and if so into what ?, will virus run its course in next month or two as does the flu, or maybe burn out in hot weather ?, will it return as does the flu in the fall, how long can a lockdown stay in place, how long will it take until places that have little concern be badly infected, or will they ever ?, how many people in the US will eventually be infected, if everyone then deaths will top 3 million, but will it matter ?, is malaria drug going to be a game changer or just a help ?, will a cure be found, and if so when ? will Orange genius get sick , if he does will he soldier through or go into retreat, if go back to normal is a disaster what happens then ? will the public finally have enough of this and death toll in millions will be of less interest than stocks and baseball as long as it's just old and sick people ?
Italy is possibly lowering new infection numbers and people in the US are looking at the high point of the problem coming in the next few weeks.

NYC , NY areas close to NYC and NJ areas close to NYC have maybe 15 million people which is about 4 % of America's population but the area has 50 % of reported cases ( which I suspect is maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of actual infections ) have to think tis in not the situation the government graphs represent which I would think is a fairly uniform infection rate through the population. To me this fortells a slow spread out from NYC that will last a long time, unless the hot weather kills off the virus. Most likely the virus came from a Chinese viral lab so it may not behave like one that evolved in the wild.

In his briefing today Trump implied states of New York and New Jersey are not doing their job of keeping cases down . That should get a reaction
