    Actually being and feeling bored is probably one of the things we should be feeling these days. i would think it means we're doing it right.

    Stay well....

      Trump seems to have his act a little more together. However, if he was up to it about a month ago, things would be much better presently.

        Thank God for Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx. They are a voice of reason and sound medical advice. Trump spends most of his pressers patting himself on the back and telling one lie after another. Andrew Cuomo should run for President one day. He has been clear, concise, consistent, empathetic and realistic in his approach. Best of luck to you all.

            Birx is a Donzilla cheerleader and won't say the real news that Fauci puts out when they let him out of his cage. Cuomo can't lose about calling-out the Fed's for the bumbling start to this whole thing. The FEMA and Homeland Security front men came off as three stooges cast members. You don't see them speaking do you...

          I don’t know that Trump’s recent bumbling press conferences, or his misdirected priorities on Covid 19 have had (outside of his base and a few Red states) that much of an impact. That he seems out of his depth on most things, makes his response to the pandemic hardly unexpected, and the blame he’s getting seems to me a bit misdirected. On the other hand, it is most definitely a fact that the federal government has failed Americans big time. Specifically the CDC: arrogantly dismissing the WHO-developed testing protocol in order to develop their own, which a month later failed tragically, resulting in an exponential increase in rates of infection that might have been prevented. With a quicker and more competent federal response, adequate and widespread testing, isolation and quarantine of the infected, America might not be on the verge of a disaster where it is currently situated.

            Donzilla showed no empathy whatsoever from the start...That is a Presidential duty that he is still failing miserably at to this day. TV ratings for his lie-fests are more important to him along with approval ratings that have risen, but WILL fall once we're on the flat end of this thing. He's not a leader. Period.

          Been a die-hard Democrat my entire life, but I have be so impressed and proud of our Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine....and Dr. Amy Acton. Very much voices of reason for all of us every day at 2pm.

            I have seen very few good Republican Governors in my lifetime. Nelson Rockefeller in New York(1960's) and Kenny Guinn in Nevada (2000's) were very good.

              Update: 163,838 cases ..... 3,003 deaths

              More than 500 deaths in the last 24 hours with more than half of them in New York State.

                CNN article out Tuesday morning with modeling info from Fauci and Brix. Models are like preseason team o/u win totals where you plug in what you think is good data and see if it comes out the other side with any accuracy. There is a big range.

                As for any sports starting, the guesstimate for deaths in this model in the U.S. is 82k...But that is by August. To me, that means there is going to be tough restrictions in some areas of the country until then. Doesn't bode well for anything getting up and running to me.
                We'll see...

                  New York is a total clusterfuck. Our governor has risen to the occasion but the mayor of new york city,the worldwide epicenter,has screwed this up from the beginning. Only today he closed playgrounds after crowds of people were congragating on a daily basis. I live on Long Island where people are doing a pretty decent job distancing but just like in sports you are only as strong as your weakest link and we have plenty of those. I have 3 kids,a son in law,and two babies at house. Go shopping twice a week. Cannot believe how some people still put fruit up to nose to smell it!!! We are going thru a ton of liquor.........and Florida putting up strict restrictions for a while hurts the start of baseball anytime soon...

                    Floriduuuuuh's Gov. is giving many thousands of residents a death sentence by not shutting down the entire state immediately. As of now they will use up all of their hospital beds. Every day counts.
                    They aren't expected to peak there until May, and that's only if they lockdown ASAP.

                    Social distancing helps a ton and is getting us here in WA near our peak...A long ways to go though. The UW big brains now say we'll need to stay locked down as a country until the end of May. The state's not doing much or just partial shutdowns will push out the timeline.

                    The 100,000 to 250,000 estimate on U.S. deaths related to Covid is based on FULL shutter in place. What's that tell ya? Ugh.

                    Let's hope we get a lull in the summer before it most likely comes back in the fall.

                    Then, as this article poits out, we're probably more like 18-months out from a vacine at a minimum....Minimum...Fucking A.

                    -------------------

                    The timetable for a coronavirus vaccine is 18 months. Experts say that's risky

                      Desantis is checking every car entering the state, and not allowing cruise ships to dock, but yet he wont issue a stay at home order for his state....unreal.

                    The Federal Government's late response to this crisis is very largely due to President Trump. Since he didn't take it seriously, telling the country that it will blow over very soon, he hindered the response of Federal Agencies. The Republican Governor of Florida, following Trump's lead, did not close the beaches. Thus, college students partied as usual on spring break. Those students will be bringing the virus all over the country as they return home.

                    When Election Day rolls around in November, make the Republicans pay the price for the many extra thousands of deaths due to their policies. Vote them out of office.

                      If this thing doesn’t change there won’t be an election in November. They haven’t even had the primaries. Even if they do, you want a guy that can barely remember his name and is responsible for over 1/2 million to 3/4 million deaths or more in that office? SMH. It really doesn’t matter who’s in there anyway. They’re all puppets for the people that really run this country and until everyone realizes that anyone with a D or R next to their name gives 0 f^€ks about any of us none of it is not going to change.

                      The Republicans are much worse in their response to this crisis. New York's Cuomo has made the best response of all the politicians in office.

                      “You want a guy that can barely remember his name and is responsible for over 1/2 million to 3/4 million deaths or more in that office?” But Buckeyefan80, I didn’t know George W was running again.

                      You are right, however. As shamefully poor as has been Trump’s performance, the Republican agenda he’s advanced, differs from Clinton’s and Obama’s only in nuance, and Biden’s would be even more of the same. Self-serving oligarchs run the U.S. – and that’s just a fact of American life. Still, a Biden presidency would be infinitely less embarrassing.

                    The Republican Governor of Texas is just as clueless as the Governor of Florida, not shutting down Texas just as the Florida Governor has kept Florida open. These are two very big population states and the leadership is screwing up in both places.

                      Not to add fuel to the political fire, but there’s no escaping the fact that current administration – especially Tom Price, a long time Georgia Republican politician, whom Trump appointed Secretary of Health and Human Services in 2017, and Price’s subsequent appointment of Brenda Fitzgerald, another Georgia Republican, as head of the CDC – really screwed the Coronavirus pooch.

                      Most glaringly, the CDC goofed on The CDC’s first try at developing test kits (although, a viable testing protocol had been provided early on by the WHO, at which the CDC thumbed its arrogant nose), resulting in the exponential spread of the disease, and then – aping Trump – denied the use of expanded testing, resulting in a failure to identify the infected and their isolation, further contributing to disease spread.

                      You’d like to think that some sections of the federal government are run by competent and non-political individuals, but when a president like Trump, in his appointments, demands personal loyalty above all other considerations – and there’s ample evidence of this – no function of the federal government is safe from failure.

                        President Trump finally seems to be getting his act together. He has gotten the Republican Governors of Florida, Georgia and Mississippi to shut down their states, Of course, the damage of a two month delay has already happened. The death rate of this virus is taking off to astronomical proportions. His inaction has caused many thousands of deaths to come. It should peak somewhere between April 15th and April 30th. Then, it should level off and eventually start to decline.
