bloody hell US.. well I guess we'll see what happens in a country when this disease is essentially allowed to "run it's course" with no measures.
At least some of your state governors seem to e taking things seriously, but it's not like they can close borders to other states. Rates are going to skyrocket :(

Doombrain might be right though, the U.S. is doing really poorly at reducing the rate of infection and it is only growing exponentially faster. China could at least (for better or worse) implement a very tight quarantine and saw infection numbers drop. It’s just starting for the U.S. It doesn’t matter about the count of infections, it’s all about the rate of growth and how people in the U.S. are still ignoring calls to self isolate.


Your comment is based solely on the notion that China is telling the world the truth. Based on their population, living conditions, how quickly this virus can spread and how long China tried to hide the problem, some are speculating they have/had 100+ million cases.

It doesn't really matter, does it, because.... well... China. Besides, pointing at China is a huge what-about-ism. The US is fucking up, majorly, thanks to the complete and utter incompetence of your country's leadership. Pointing out that China's got it worse is really just throwing a red herring.

one of the weirdest things about this whole thing is how people are so keen to point the finger at other countries not doing enough (in their humble opinion, naturally). "Ur fucked", "No ur fucked"... etc

going on about who's got it worse is missing the real issue with China, which is that it's place where it started and the reasons why it started, which are a) the pseudoscience of "traditional medicine" (eating pangolin meat which turned out to be infected); b) the lax hygiene standards of wet markets (weak governance); and c) attempts to conceal the problem by a totalitarian state worried about its self-image (compounded by the pathetic attempts to blame the current situation on other nations, in particular the US)

don't drink the CCP Kool-Aid :dts:

Yeah hopping on the bike right now is pretty safe unless you crash and take up EMT resources.

Problem is gwamps scoots around slowly coughing his sick lungs out through a skull face bandana, sending his microscopic blockheads into all the other sick, impoverished idiots in that backwater state.

I actually went for an hour long solo ride today. Which was the second time I left the house this week. But I'm anxious to how this is dangerous to my or anyone else's health.

Please explain...

BTW America has tested more of it's residents than any other country and will continue to test upwards of 100k people a day. You might want to consider that.

No it hasn't and no it won't you blockhead retard, your shithole country can barely round up enough testing kits for one measly little town :olo:

Even Libyans feel sorry for you :olo:

Test kits will only give you a positive or negative and give statistics to know where it's spreading. It does nothing to actually stop transmission. It doesn't matter how much testing the U.S. is doing, what it needs to do is quarantine.

BTW going anywhere increases the risk of catching or transmitting a virus. It’s not hard to understand. Stay safe plz.

I guess you could argue both sides of the necessity of testing depending on your opinion, political affiliation or your emotional feelings towards an administration. Generally more testing is a good thing. But some people will always find fault.

Yes they are.

More testing = more cases.

You can go outside... As long as you're taking the necessary precaution (distance/washing/touching) you'll be fine.

A colleague on my team left for a vacation in Florida last Tuesday. He definitely brought back some stupid with him.

Relieved I got laid off and don't have to work next to him anymore..

You do realize that the majority of those people aren't even from Florida. They're a mix of selfish dipshits from all over the world who don't want their vacation spoiled by the Corona Virus.

Stupid comes here from all over. :rolleyes:
