Trump keeps saying again today from the White House that nobody every thought this could happen. That is false. His own administration knew it could happen and likely would. And they also knew they were unprepared.

Here is the report. You can read it yourself. It is all here. Almost the exact scenario we are now living through. Except they modeled a flu outbreak, not coronavirus. https://int.nyt.com/data/documenthelper/6824-2019-10-key-findings-and-after/05bd797500ea55be0724/optimized/full.pdf#page=1

Again, HHS knew it was going to run out of ventilators based on the supply it had, during a global pandemic. Trump just said during his Saturday news conference at the White House again it was a surprise. "No one has ever heard of it." Again false. PAGE 45. BLACK AND WHITE.
 
FYI, it is page 45 of the PDF, but it is page 39 numbered in the report.

trump had already been warned about  the seriousness of the pandemic 2 months ago by the intelligence community.

 This was a time when he was telling everyone that the pandemic was a hoax--

a hoax perpetrated by the Democratic party and promoted by the left-wing liberal mainstream media.

 trump knew it was coming, and instead of preparing the United States and saving lives he opted to promote his own political interest and re-election prospects.

Very sad that the sociopath downplayed the urgency of the coronavirus threat week after week and did little to prepare the nation's defenses against it because he was so worried about spooking his beloved stock market. As a result, many more will die than would have otherwise.

"Very sad that the sociopath downplayed the urgency of the coronavirus threat week after week and did little to prepare the nation's defenses against it.....

 Well, the coronavirus pandemic is not a hoax and American people are dying because the trump presidency did NOT see fit to prepare for this on- coming disaster--

What in the hell do you think I've been screaming at the top of my lungs?! The flu is NOT important ?? This seasons outbreak has killed over 40,000 just in the US alone!
 
The report will an optimistic appraisal if that strain or H5N1 Avian flu mutates human to human alone (was quoted it was a protein molecule away :o.)  The death toll estimate could take out 60% of the human population.  History will repeat the Middle Ages.
 
Time for a wake up call!  This is the most dangerous organism on the planet to date.

Interesting oped from a repub consultant in  today's WAPO

Don’t just blame President Trump. Blame me — and all the other Republicans who aided and abetted and, yes, benefited from protecting a political party that has become dangerous to America. Some of us knew better.

Imagine if Trump had used these 4-6 weeks to:
—raise awareness
—surge testing capacity
—surge production of masks & ventilators
—construct temporary hospital space
 
Ignoring these warnings meant more dead, more jobs lost, more disruption.
 
That’s on Trump.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart tells

that he is finally feeling better after nearly a week, but confessed

the initial symptoms hit him "like a ton of bricks."......

"It's a tricky bug because just when I thought I was over it or I was pretty close to getting over it, the fever will come back," he said on NBC Nightly News. "But again, not as bad as it was originally, and I think hopefully the worst is passed.".......

U.S. intelligence reports from January and February warned about a likely pandemic
 
Intelligence officials reported that China appeared to be minimizing the outbreak and said swift action could be needed to contain the virus.
 
Despite the warnings, Trump continued to play down the threat the virus posed to Americans.

McConnell trying to use COVID-19 to write a blank $500 billion check to his and Trump's buddies ranks up there with him stealing a Court seat and blocking a bipartisan response to an attack on our elections among the most traitorous acts in American history. So he is consistent.
 
8:12 PM · 

With the House not in session,  McConnell had the audacity to craft a money bill of this magnitude with only Republicans in the Senate.

trump's $1000 + Coronavirus stimulus check to all adult Americans became McConnell's tax rebate only for Americans making between $ 50, 000- $99,000.

Taxpayers and Social Security recipients making less than that, but at least $2,500 would have received a paltry $600.

And instead of gearing money for the state unemployment systems, most American workers , most Social Security recipients  and  the hospital systems, McConnell wanted to gear the money toward employers and corporations.

McConnell's legislation didn't really put very much money in the hands of an average American person, but was a slush fund for Republican corporations to continue trump's tax write-off for them.

It's sad that McConnell and the GOP tried to use this pandemic to further enrich their fat-cat corporations and fat cat donors at the expense of average Americans who are really suffering physically, emotionally, and financially now.

The Democratic legislation coming from the House that Speaker Pelosi will introduce on Monday promises to put American workers first, the most vulnerable of Americans first, and too recognize the absolute crisis that the pandemic puts hospitals and all the Healthcare Community in.

McConnell trying to Blackmail Democrats into accepting a Republican Corporation bailout, while  undercutting and ignoring the average unemployed American just didn't work this time.

Traditionally and today Republicans put corporations ahead of working Americans.

These survivalist nut jobs are Donald Trump supporters.  Chief among the reasons is that they, like some Christian Evangelicals, think that Trump will start the holocaust, nuclear or otherwise, that will bring down civilization as we know it/the end of days.

I believe having extra food on hand is important when dealing with such or is panic buying preferred?

Many people keep emergency food in storage for such an event.

Modern equivalent of the old civil defense.

The point of this is not that it validates your “flu .is the same is Covid19’ narrative.  It underscores Donald Trump’s willful stupidity in ignoring the threat of a pandemic that would overwhelm the country.  He was warned of the conclusions in this simulation, and did nothing to prepare.  As the actual  epidemic started to spread, he was again warned about how serious it would get, and again did nothing, and publicly minimized it, and continues to do so.  He is criminally negligent, as he has needlessly placed American lives at risk.

People needs a high school Biology refresher course on  RNA viruses along  with people having a strong immune system plus  incubation periods.   I told everyone, once these type of contagions gets into the eco-system it's virtually impossible to stop. (I slept not in class)

Ever heard of "Typhoid Mary"?  Covid-19 was already worldwide before anyone became aware to take precaution / prevention measures.  Many Typhoid Mary type of individuals were spreading it without a clue they had such a virus within their systems.  How does one know who to stop and test if showing no symptoms? China has developed  worldwide  travel and trade which  expedited  the spread.  No one is blaming government officials in the EU where Covid-19  hit fast and hard, especially Italy.

It's reckless try to get an unproven drug into the market without proper testing.  Takes a while to develope a vaccine.  

We are now just learning how long Corona takes to incubate which varies.
