    Looking at the number of cases the US will soon become ground zero for this epidemic with more cases than Italy, and given the lack of a systematic country wide lock down and federal led response its going to get far far worse before it gets better. The governors can only do so much. So I don't foresee the infection curve being bent as has happened elsewhere. Its just going to continue its meteoric rise albeit at a slower pace.

    So at this point seeing how badly its being handled I'm wondering if it might get so bad that the 25th will have to be invoked.

    Sadly, electing an incompetent grifter in order to own the libs is having fatal consequences.

    Trump's response has been pointed at over and over as being slow and riddled with intentional misinformation, like people eating fish tank cleaner (or whatever it was that killed that guy).

    However, whatever the House and Senate agree on, he'll have no choice but to sign. And again, his actual influence is fading -- it's more and more public that nobody accepts his word on anything important anymore.

    Speaking of Republican governors not trusting Trump:

    We hope everyone is back in business shortly, but we don't think this will peak until May 1. The only way we slow it down is with physical/social distancing.

    The comments are horrifying. It's mostly people saying they'll go broke/their business will go broke, they won't comply, flat-out denial, and some even speak of revolt.

    No-one is above the law.

    It should be noted that the state of Louisiana has over 1700 cases of the virus, according to the MSN virus tracker.
    A politically motivated virus, yep, that's why its known as (D) Covid-19. I would like to say the stupidity shown amazes me but sadly it doesn't.

    It's not just the uber religious...it's the elderly.
    I'm constantly surprised at how many are going about their routines as if all was normal.

    More on the currently stalled bill.

    A group of GOP Senators are threatening to hold the bill up longer, because of the unemployment provision. Specifically, if someone gets their full salary for four months from unemployment insurance, and they're facing a salary cut, they'll choose to be fired instead.

    "Um..."

    Yeah, I know. I just advised someone to do that. Apparently it's not just me that saw the loophole.

    For it to peak would necessitate a full proper nationwide lockdown with stringent gov enforced measures on social distancing. That just isn't happening to the extent that is needed, and too many people are instead taking their que from the president and treating it like some sort of liberal conspiracy to destroy Trump.

    I hate to be the bearer of ill news, but if you are going to wait for a peak to enact lockdowns you are a week too late.

    Pentagon orders a 60-day overseas troop freeze. The order does not include the word "Easter" once.

    Louisiana could run out of ventilators by the first week of April. Not the second week, when Easter is.

    Experts say that New Orleans is likely to be the next epicenter, despite it being, you know, warmer there.

    The plight of New Orleans - with the world’s highest growth rate in coronavirus cases and where authorities have warned hospitals could collapse by April 4 - also raises fears it may be a powerful catalyst in speedily spreading the virus across the south of the country.
    April 4 is before Easter.

    Netanyahu prepares his country for a "complete lockdown" indefinitely. He did not mention Easter, but it's Israel, so he probably wouldn't have regardless.

    California says "In response to Trump asking states to conceal unemployment numbers, ours is a million. A literal million.[/url]"

    Nobody is listening to Trump. Nobody.

    No-one is above the law.

    and then they will have to pay 2000+ a month for insurance.....

    That's one hell of a salary cut they would have to take.

    A new EPI study says the US could lose fourteen million jobs by summer.

    "But what if the stimulus package -- "

    That's including a stimulus package.

    A chart included with the analysis showed the projected surge in unemployment in each state, with Nevada projected to face the highest levels of unemployment, at 14.2 percent. Hawaii was close behind, with 13.6 percent unemployment predicted. Montana could see unemployment surge to 12.4 percent, while the jobless rate in Florida is projected to rise to 12 percent. Nationwide, every state is expected to see at least 9.5 percent unemployment, according to the EPI analysis.

    To put those projections in perspective, unemployment peaked at 9.9 percent nationwide in 2009 during the Great Recession. It rose to an all-time high of 24.9 percent during the Great Depression in 1933.
    EDIT: Why Nevada? Probably the service industry being so centralized in Las Vegas.

    NK has been trolling Trump like a boss. Iran's late to the party, but getting their shots in. Who's next?

    Yes. WHO's next.

    There's still time to stop the United States from becoming the next epicenter of the novel coronavirus pandemic, a World Health Organization spokeswoman told CNN on Wednesday.

    "The potential is there, but you've still got time to turn it around," WHO's Margaret Harris said.

    Though the number of cases and deaths continues to grow in the United States, it's possible to reverse the trajectory, she said.

    "You've got the best public health brains in the world," Harris said. "You've got people who can harness technology brilliantly. You've got people who can really think out of the box."

    The formula for success is testing people, finding each case, identifying people who have come into contact with those who have been infected, isolating those who are ill or who have been exposed and quarantining, she said.

    "Finally, getting the people who are ill to treatment -- and when you do that, really, really protect your health workers," she said.

    Harris previously said that the US had the potential to be the next epicenter based on the "very large acceleration" in its number of cases.
    The rest of that CNN article goes on to the next heading "Is Easter realistic?" HINT: It's a CNN article.

    14 million jobs...

    Oh I can't wait to hear Trump Supporters scream about how 14 million people are lazy and don't want to work. Now we're going to see what happens to a country that refuses social programs protecting workers react when all those service workers they railed on for years are the only ones with consistent employment.

    You are so fucking in time-out for that one. As soon as I stop laughing...

    Well done.

    I'm sure Team Deplorable will ignore that as well - they have their message all set now.

    Damn, I graduated high school with a Recession and only 10 years later to have A pandemic and a recession to happen.

    I didn’t even get a chance to have a fun stress free time in my 20s now not going to get it in my 30s.

    Dr Faucci if he has any self respect left, should grab the microphone from him the next time he is saying something dumb. Better to go out blazing than to be guilty of not acting and seeing this tragedy unfold in front of him. If that other doctor deborah wants to play the angel of death let her.

    Also don't worry about the Easter celebration infecting tons of people, that's weeks from now. I doubt the country will be open by then.

    Yeah he is pretty bad. The instant he sees the opportunity he pushes blame onto others and is obviously willing to gamble with possibly millions of peoples lives just for a role of the dice that it won't be so bad and the economy can go up a bit more and he can go back to rallies and shit.

    You need a sense of respect, self-awareness, shame or responsibility to be blackmailed. Trump doesn't have any of those. What would you blackmail him with? "If you don't do what we want you to do, we will leak the fact that you blackmailed a foreign nation for personal gain and you'll be impeached?"
