Please stop. We will never know the numbers because the guy who runs the country did not get tests until we were in the thick of it. Then says tests are not important- yet everyone around him gets tested daily? Masks are okay but everyone around him must wear one? And how about that record number of people dying of pneumonia in May in Florida because Desantis did not want to test his citizens. So all those covid cases were ruled as pneumonia. My niece has seen more people die in last 3 months then her first two years by a wide amount. You have doctors crying in hallways. And you are worried about how the media reports it? How about a federal plan to deal with this. All the medical professionals are asking- actually begging for one. But I guess it is more important to shoot 18 holes. And I guess as long as you align with the potus that porevents one from getting covid? I hope you are not asked the question in the hospital "do you want to live?" like my one customer right before they intubated him. As far as over reporting- it is actually under reported probably because of lack of tests and asymptomatic people. Your claims are great fox news talking points but not reality.
And as far as this will all be over after the election- doubt it. I think we are headed down a bad road. We have had to cap our covid testing by 40% daily because there is a shortage again because of the increase in sick people. Philly is still a hotspot and a lot of people driving over the bridge to get tested. I am actually concerned that if we see too big of a spike this fall that WMA's get shutdown based off the closure of boat ramps now.
Dems are the ones who were pushing for another stimulus. It is McConnel (the self proclaimed obstructionist) who is holding it up. Open the economy so we can look like florida, texas, arizona? There is 102 people linked to one bar in one of those states. Yeah lets open our bars here. It isn't the dems or the republicans who are going to determine when EVERYTHING gets opened. It will be this virus. We are on the virus timeclock no matter who the potus is. One thing is 100% for certain though. We should be embarrassed as a country in our handling of this virus. Other countries did the sacrificing- true sacrifice- and are doing great. You know less than 300 cases a day in several of those countires. While we watch our daily cases spiraling out of control.
And the flu comparison is ridiculous. First the flu does not attack organs and brain like this virus does. Flu is dormant during the summer not like this virus. The flu does not leave the kind of permanent damage to lungs like this virus does. And now they are studying permanent brain damage as well. Thye flu people go back to work in a week. This virus they go back 2-8 weeks later because of the length of illness. It may be because I deal with covid everyday and speak to people dealing directly with covid every day that I am the way I am with this virus. But I definitely do not wish this virus on anyone. The flu has nothing on this virus.
