Can someone tell me how da trumpz dollaz gun werk?

This reminds me of post ww1 germany printing money and driving inflation through their own fart boxes.

We haven't been able to drive inflation in decades.  Money supply apparently doesn't matter one bit.

Then he grabbed a handful of pens in his tiny hand and proceeded to hand them out to everyone of these assholes.

The Dems should be relieved they weren't invited.

Seriously, i get skeeved out if i get within 12 feet of anyone these days. You have to assume EVERY person you run into is infected. I dont understand what "our leaders" are thinking sometimes.

 

You need to look more at the bright side of things. There’s a very good chance at least one of those assholes has it but doesn’t know it yet. 

Frankly I can’t wait for trump to start holding his hate rallies again, while he once again proclaims the virus to be a democratic hoax.

I wouldn’t get within 50 feet of trump at this point unless it was to piss on his grave.

Six feet away is safe social distancing.

I feel this could spark The Ultimate Photoshop Battle to see us through these boring times.

For corona.  Who knows what other kinds of filth he is carrying around and capable of transmitting.

Spirochetes in his brain is a plausible explanation for some of this.

After hundreds of examples, we now have the clearest example of Trump projection tweeting.

Our testing numbers in Alabama SUCK!

Dashboard with latest stats -

So, using my very shitty math skills - and please correct any screw ups, I’m no mathematician!

Alabama’s population is

ed5cc5a8c029f7c6cc008c1019dbafc4.jpg

.097% of citizens have been tested.

13.4% of those tested are positive.

Extrapolating that positive percentage to the population as a whole gives us an idea but it’s obviously not a great comparison given the variables (our current positive rate should be mitigated somewhat if the current tests have only been done on a more at risk set of patients).

But let’s take a range of 6.7% (half the current rate) to the current infection rate of 13.4%.

Gives us a range of anywhere from 328,877 to 657,755 possible infections for the state.

Current deaths at 4 (one was just announced and isn’t on the dashboard yet).

Of 639 infected with 4 deaths that’s a death percentage of .63%.

Obviously, that death rate should decline if current testing is only done for the sickest patients.

Extrapolating that death rate for estimated infections-

Low end estimate of 328,877 infections calculated for low end .31% death rate - 1,020 deaths.

Low end of 328,877 infections calculated for .63% high end death rate - 2,072 deaths.

High end estimate of 328,877 infections calculated for low end .31% death rate - 2,039 deaths.

High end estimate of 657,755 infections calculated for high end .63% death rate - 4,144 deaths.

So Alabama is possibly looking at a deaths numbering anywhere from 1,020 to 4,144 deaths if the current numbers stay as they are.

Alabama has approximately 1,300 ventilators but experts say only around 800 are available.

So here’s where the available vents stack up against the estimated death rates (reports suggest most deaths are patients who required vents during their treatment).

Low end - 1,020 would leave the state 220 ventilators short.

High end - 4,144 would leave the state 3,344 ventilators short.

Our testing rate is woefully inadequate.

I firmly believe that with the right leadership we would be entering the tail end of this crisis having suffered only a fraction of the economic damage and lost lives.  Had Trump recognized back in Nov-Dec-Jan what was coming and acted decisively (gradually shut down all international travel over Jan-Feb, immediately gotten started provisioning PPE/tests/treatments/vaccines, nationwide shelter-in-place during all of March), the US would have <50,000 total cases, and there would be almost no risk of overwhelming the healthcare system.  We really would be looking at Easter as a realistic time to reopen the country.

I don’t know what previous presidents would have done.  I don’t know if they would have had better information to work with or if they’d have acted more decisively.  But it’s almost impossible to imagine anyone handling this in a more divisive, dishonest, and confusing way.

Back to the Villages, they set up a drive thru testing site for Village residents only. Many people with no symptoms were tested

yes. If that makes me an asshole so be it. 
 

 

 

That doesn't make you an asshole. It makes you a stupid cunt.

You know what rural hospitals do with people who are really sick? They send them to the city hospitals.

 

Rural areas are a lot less prepared for this than NYC.
