Did you read the OP?

"The Comfort will treat non-coronavirus patients"

 

I am sure that will work out just fine, how will they know when some one newly infected comes on board for a regular old cut or broken leg. They check the guy ok he is clear the whole time spreading the virus. No way they can keep a spreader off unless they will not except patient. Trumps legacy of failure will follow him for years, it is called history and his handling of this emergency will be exposed he cannot hide, cover up or lie away the virus and his incompetence

Is that the Govs last numbers? He has a press conference every day, how many NYers are on ventilators right now?

Article below says only 2,352.

This is the thing I do not understand.  I grew up with flus, worked in Alaska for 20 years and saw many many people get the flu, only a few went to a hospital.  There is no "treatment" for flu other than fluids and bed rest.  Those who reach the viral pneumonia stage need hospitalization and ventilators. 

 

"In New York, the number of people hospitalized was 9,517, up 12 percent from yesterday. Of those, 2,352 are in ventilator-equipped intensive care rooms"   

 

So why are an additional ~7,200 people being admitted into hospitals if they are not on ventilators?

From March 30.

Wouldn't that be the same if the guy with the broken leg goes to any other hospital?

I can understand the sentiment coming out to cheer. However how stupid do you have to be to gather in large crowds right now? Is it any wonder NYC is ground zero?

In California, another hard-hit state, Governor Gavin Newsom said the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations had nearly doubled over the past four days and the number of ICU patients had tripled. By Monday, 1,421 California patients had been hospitalized, up from 746 four days ago, he said. 

All rubbish...

When they announced, in late January, the ban on travel from China, I remember thinking "Wow, someone there actually understands what is happening". No other country grasped the necessity until later months. Of course, the government was heavily criticized and denounced as racist by the media/Democrats, but that brave decision bought the American people invaluable time.

Nice set of lies! Directly from Trump's tweets!

(1) Most developed countries declared a China travel ban around the same time, I.e. Italy before the US

(2) the Dems did not criticize the CHINA travel ban. You will not be able to make any quote mentioning the CHINA travel ban to support this lie!

(1) The US and Italy introduced their restrictions on the same day. They were the only countries to act in January. Italy was already in deep trouble by then, the US deserves some credit for taking action at a significantly earlier stage. At the time only six people in the US were confirmed to be infected, and no deaths.

(2) Joe Biden called Trump’s Chinese Coronavirus travel ban ‘Xenophobia’. Joe Biden is a member of the Democratic Party.

But, she was only parroting what your own government was predicting.

 

Maybe revoking the licence of the current government would actually also not such a bad idea.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was among the dignitaries to greet the ship's arrival. He said preparations for the ship, including dredging, took eight days, much less than the two weeks initially expected.

"Some bystanders chanted, "Trump, Trump, Trump," as the huge vessel neared the Midtown Manhattan pier where it docked."

 

Yes, President Trump is bringing the country together.  Three months ago, these New Yorkers hated him.  Now they love him.  

 

Trump 2020 guaranteed!

A guy with some of the most progressive views here.

 

Yeah R. Maddow is fake news and a shill for the neo-liberal agenda. She gets like 50k a month to do a huge disservice to the American people. Shame on her IMO.

 

Well, after all said and done. She is an actress...

Although I would like to see Bernie win. I think Trump will in deed win. Christ, who can vote for Biden? Biden will probably have a health problem and his VP will take over.

 

Also as I mentioned last week on here, I have more support for Trump now despite many of his issues. I just wish we could have more transparency.

 

I can understand Trump needs to keep his base. The guy has no allegiances and is open to any creed or any ideology that will help himself. Given that, I do believe he always has his personal interests in mind rather than the American People.

 

p.S. If you don't think your government is corrupt and filled with corporate shills. You may be naive.  They can't impeach Trump if they have done the same wrongdoings for years before him. Eye for an eye...

It is hard to understand why the arrival of a hospital ship would require dredging, unless it was sent to a wharf/pier that was unaccustomed to receiving ships of any kind. A hospital ship carries virtually no cargo, so should be relatively shallow drafted.

She gets about $600k/mo.
