    The one sure thing is that Trump is killing many Americans with his inept response to contain the pandemic. When Easter comes in 17 days, the crisis will be much, much worse than it is now and he wants to open up the country. He is more concerned about his empty hotels and golf courses than doing his job of getting this pandemic under control.

      What would you expect from a guy that bankrupted 2 casinos. This is usually the time he would declare bankruptcy and cash out, unfortunately you cant do that with a country.

        Let’s remember what we can control and do our best. UK has actually brought the limit for group contact down to 2. Keep our immune systems up with probiotics and more vitamin C and D3. Lots of sleep and thorough hand washing. And try not to stress out

        I am sick of hearing about how this is all Trump’s fault. He’s made mistakes throughout this I’m sure. I don’t pay attention to the news because all they all spew is their agenda instead of actual news. Remember that around 12.5k people in the US ALONE died from swine flu. There was no outrage over how Obama was responding to it nor was there any stay at home order, which could’ve saved thousands of lives. Who really knows. Even if it has come from Governors and not Trump. Where were the Governors in ‘09? Y’all need to turn off fox news and cnn and msnbc and stop being a sheep! I trust nothing that I hear from any of them. Neither party gives a f*€k about any of us. That’s why corporations are getting a bigger bailout than us.

        There are so many factors into what has gone into this and what happened during swine flu that we really don’t know. Why is it that everyone wants to blame the party they don’t like instead of everyone banding together and forcing these f*€k politicians to answer for their bs actions. Regardless if you are a sheep of the D or the R, just remember not a single one of them came up with the idea to pass 1 piece of legislation at a time and they needed to put their own POLITICAL nonsense into it. Why exactly do you need 880 pages to get Americans and small businesses money? WTFU!

          I heard that Republicans are contracting this disease at a higher rate than Democrats, If true, I think that is because Republicans are following Trump's downplaying the crisis while Democrats know that Trump is dead wrong in his assessment.

            Palm Beach County, Florida, where Trump's property Mar-A-Lago is located, is expected to be the next ''hot spot'' of this disease. So far, very few people have been tested there.

              The USA becomes the first country with over 100,000 confirmed cases. Actually, 102,074 confirmed cases along with 1,605 confirmed deaths. The number of deaths will probably double in one week. New Orleans and Chicago are being hit hard right now, but of course it is at its worst in New York.

                Italy: Only 12% of “Covid19 deaths” list Covid19 as cause. Report shows up to 88% of Italy’s alleged Covid19 deaths could be misattributed

                https://off-guardian.org/2020/03/23/...7w81n05ElC7-C_

                Not really sure how or why this became a political post. The article above is proof that govt's all over the world are manipulating data to exaggerate the threat to take advantage of us! Especially in the US at the tune of $2.2 Trillion, with a T.
                Anyway, not sure where your numbers come from TARB, maybe you have today's updated numbers. The CDC is showing 85,000+ with 12+ deaths, but that was as of yesterday. It would make sense the US would be first considering our healthcare system.

                  Appreciate your fear of an overbearing government, but the “facts” cited in the article you linked are simply spun in a way intended to fuel that fear which is the blog’s editorial foundation – the fear of authoritarianism. Certainly, governments everywhere are taking draconian steps to stop the Covid 19 spread, but that the disease is spreading and that it kills, is simply undebatable. That it hastens death in cases where secondary illness is present (which Italy counts as Covid 19 deaths), hardly makes it less of a Covid 19 death. It makes their current outlier death rate of 4.7% due to Covid 19 more explicable, but it hardly absolves the disease of complicity, makes it a case of data manipulation, or makes the steps taken by governments to stop the spread unreasonable.

                I watch and read a lot about what's going on, and my take is that 'maybe' we get baseball going at some point in July...Maybe. This whole thing has to peak first, then slide down the backside of the hill for at least a month, maybe two before any lifting of social distancing can take effect. The last thing you want to do is not put the fire out and let it reignite.

                I've been telling friends for weeks that football could possibly get started, but it won't finish. Most likely this thing comes back in the fall, and we'll go into some sort of shutdown again that will stop any sports all over again, and take out all the winter sports where basketball/hockey never get started. College is kicking around a summer season that goes to September/October. All the cards are on the table to try to make something out of possibly nothing. Be ready for anything.

                It's a mess, and until there is a vaccine approved sometime NEXT year, we'll be on a roller-coaster with Covid that nobody can truly predict where and when it will subside and reappear.

                Here in my area, the University of Washington big brains say in a March 27 article that we're looking at 80,000 deaths just in the U.S. by July --- What does that tell you about the chances of having any long periods of time to fit in a sports season...It tells you fat chance IMHO. The range is 38.000 - 162,000. This is just the first wave. I'll bet on the scientists every time, and not ANY politician's predictions about when we get our freedom back. https://www.newsweek.com/deaths-coro...-finds-1494693

                Sorry to be Debbie-downer, but this MFer you can only see under a microscope is the biggest, baddest dog on the block right now, and to borrow a sports cliche, 'You can't stop it, you can only hope to contain it' for now.

                Best of luck...And wash your hands! 👐

                  This is probably why after July 3 is the favorite for any major sport to have a game.

                  I think that's the bet to make...Baseball needs maybe two-weeks to get guys into some sort of playing shape, and get a few practice games in so IF they can get rolling by mid-June, then there's a good shot of playing real games by early July. It would be pretty cool if they could start on July 4th!

                  We can only hope we peak in most places in April, and the curve flattens enough by June to give us all a break from this bastard. We gotta do what we're doing though or it will be all for not.

                  Well, the hoping there is some widespread peaking by mid-April is totally off the table...By mid-June will be hard to have in many states. So many are behind where CA., NY., WA., NOLA, IL. are as of now, (which haven't peaked yet), the chances of us being fully out of this during the summer as a country seem improbable. Then there are 9-states that happen to be all GOP lead, that aren't doing any sort of 'stay-at-home' order. WTF? I guess they think they are all immune...Immune from facts anyway.

                  Like I said, letting the fire kick up again is the last thing we need but not everyone wants to play ball. Ugh.

                  UPDATE: 121,959 cases, for a 1-day increase of 19,885 cases ..... 2,042 deaths, for a 1-day increase of 437 deaths

                  New York State reports more than 200 deaths in a 24-hour period

                  Just 1-week ago, Trump was calling the covid-19 virus a hoax. He is clueless, as to what is happening in this country. He is only concerned about his various businesses, his image and getting re-elected.

                    Dr. Fauci says that the final number of cases in the USA will top out at over 1,000,000 along with 100,000 to 200,000 deaths.

                      If the numbers are that high, it will be because they are skewed. That is due to the same reason that 88% of Italy's deaths are being labeled incorrectly. A person that dies WITH the virus and not BECAUSE of the virus should not be counted as a C-19 death.This is happening at a tremendous rate and is why the numbers are so high. There have been over 38,000,000 flu illnesses since Oct 1 2019 so 1M doesn't seem too bad. Yes it's bad for a virus with no vaccine or treatment but people have recovered from it too. Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell who were the 1st NBA players that were announced to have had C-19 have been cleared and no longer have it.

                      That Covid 19 hastens death in cases where a previously diagnosed illness is present, hardly makes it less of a Covid 19 death. It certainly explains Italy's reported high death rate, but I'd hardly call that "skewed". That it hastens death, in such circumstances, is a fact, as is the fact that it’s spreading and that it kills the otherwise healthy as well.

                      Bucky, if you are infected with Covid than it counts in the stats. The infection stats are woefully low though as there was no testing early on, and not a huge amount going on right now, but that will rise. When the tests rise, the infection numbers will rise with...That all makes sense. The actually infections could be 10-times that documented number, but as we know, over the 80% of the cases are fairly mild and never make it to a medical level to be counted. The death count is tough to be accurate with though as far if just Covid was the only cause. How would have died anyway without Covid? Covid as the final straw for someone can be put under the 'Covid related' stats number. Bottom line, it's super infectious and can kill people all by itself. The health care providers are so busy, it will take a long time to come up with a clearer picture of how Covid affected the people that died while having it.

                    Yesterday, a field hospital, consisting of a number of big tents containing a total of 58 beds, was erected in Central Park (New York City's borough of Manhattan).

                      How Scary is that, at least another 100,000 + people expected to die from this virus, stay safe everyone and stay home
