      They aren’t wrong. Containment was never suppose to stop it. Only slow it. However, they act like nothing else is happening. And that was the whole plan.

        Hey just FYI, we now have negative real interest rates on the 30 year treasury. So if you have any very long term public investments that might have any positive return, we should probably consider doing them.

          “We have contained this. I won’t say airtight but pretty close to airtight,” White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said in a television interview on Feb. 25, echoing Trump’s tweeted declaration that the virus was “very much under control” in the United States.

          What the article says, "The problem, they say, is that once it was clear that the virus was within our borders officials did not pivot quickly enough to changing circumstances."

          "The Trump Administration only last week began authorizing disease surveillance within major American cities, where the medical community has been blind for weeks to the expanding number of new cases. Additionally, the drive to quarantine individuals from certain countries—China, Italy, Korea—discounted those from other nations, where the virus was also being transmitted. "

          Like Iran where they lady infected in NYC came from.

          "A new genomic analysis by the Seattle Flu Study suggests that COVID-19 has likely been spreading in Washington state since mid-January, weeks before the U.S. implemented travel and quarantine measures."

          Remember it was the airlines who initially shut down flights to China because the Trump Administration had delayed calling for that. Per earlier in the thread.

              • So Trump wanted to come down for the optics and get some good photos of him looking scientific, got everyone working at cdc do have to go through presidental visit security, many stayed home and the folks coming in are having trouble getting to work because dickhead canceled everything yesterday after security detail was in place.

                        Fucking Rand Paul. Said he can't vote for anything that would add more to the debt. El Oh Fucking El.

                        Why does Kentucky have 2 of the worst 5 senators?

                            Every Republican senator voted for the Coronavirus bill except Paul. It's just nonsense. If this shit was a handout for corporate partners in Kentucky he'd vote for it. But combating a potential epidemic? Paul thinks bootstraps will cure it.

                            • Just talked to a guy who’s in the know. You guys are just going to have to trust me on this one.

                              First off, China has been vastly under-reporting this. They’ve literally wiped whole cities off the map, bulldozing them and then covering them with cement.

                              He says that this virus has very little to do with the flu, and described it as the common cold with anger management issues. He said the closest analogue to this is SARS.

                              Remember SARS? Yeah. Good times.

                              Anyhow, he basically said this is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better. Forced quarantines. Wearing masks and gloves. Tend to hundreds of thousands potentially dying. Parts of the economy collapsing. All of that and then some.

                              I wasn’t freaked out before I talked to him last night. Today? Different story.

                                This is why you don't hollow out government agencies of expertise because they refuse to take a loyalty oath to Trump. This is why meritocracy should be a thing. This is why Trump's idea of cutting funding for HHS and CDC is dumb.
