    It is not the virus that is hitting them, but rather their immune system being unable to deal with bacterial infections after having been demolished by the corona virus.

    Is any country capable of handling that situation? I am aware i was merely making a point that simply believing you are prepared and you have good health care, what the US does not as top care is just centralized on a few hospitals nation wide won't get you anywhere.

    I did believe Italy had a good capacity of ICU, maybe not in hindsight for this situation however.

    Huh? Daily new case total is around 60k, not 100k.

    Not that 60k is fantastic...

    Scrutiny happened. We're much more aware of the problem and are keeping a much closer eye on the situation.

    Well, it's also the virus causing your lungs to develop leisons and fill up with fluids.

    Did Trump just promise to deliver 100k ventilators in 100 days.

    1000 ventilators produced every day.....? That's pushing out a ventilator every 1,5 minutes 24/7.
    i think he said something like 30k in 100 days, but realistically we'll have 0 for a while till they get going.

    Don't know why people still watch it to be honest, it is all lies and propaganda with a few tidbits of actual facts something you can easily pick up from reputable news sites who get paid to listen to him talk, something nobody should just do free or willingly.

    Watching that stumbling buffoon talk who has issues pronounces words is fun when people aren't getting killed but now its just tragic.

    Doubtful. I mean, we're already building field hospitals at the worst hotspots, and it's only going to get much, much worse.

    But after looking at those hospital numbers, I shudder to think what the UK is going to look like in a month.

    Around 80k right now and the day isn't over in the western hemisphere. There are still numbers coming in every couple of minutes. US alone might pump out another 10k more.

    That's partially due to county hospitals being overwhelmed because most people go there because they are uninsured or under insured.

    Trump doesn't need much help in that regard.

    Where are you seeing 80k?

    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
    Has the total new for today at 61115 as of right now. I was estimating around 72k at end of day, given the current trend. 80k would be another significant increase in previous trends.

    Give it time yet, the day isn’t over. We were at a little over 500k confirmed yesterday. Total count is approaching 600k today as of 5 minutes ago when I checked.

    You don't give a fuuuuuuuuck about it except for perceived scored points against the left, so you can take your mock outrage and GTFO.

    Compared the youtube live tracker (~600k) number to the bing.com/covid one from yesterday (520k).

    You have no idea. Italians have one of the best healthcare in the world and that is a fact, whatever you are pulling out.
    Maybe you can explain to me WHY they are rankig among the top in the world for life expetancy (another fact)

    Quite honestly, that was unbecoming.

    This level is something that is fitting here, not there.

    Nah, US is pretty close to done with +16.2k already in. Still not sure where you're seeing the extra 20k, though...

    Exactly. Fuck giving Trump the time of day. Interesting enough BBC, CNN etc are all getting record amounts of traffic because in dispite of a select amount of retards crying they are "fake news" they aren't, and are trusted.
