Trump Is Inciting a Coronavirus Culture War to Save Himself

Donald Trump
CHIP SOMODEVILLA / GETTY

Donald Trump had a message for the Chinese government at the beginning of the year: Great job!

“China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency,” Trump tweeted on January 24. “It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

Over the next month, the president repeatedly praised the Chinese government for its handling of the coronavirus, which appears to have first emerged from a wildlife market in the transportation hub of Wuhan, China, late last year. Trump lauded Chinese President Xi Jinping as “strong, sharp and powerfully focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus,” and emphasized that the U.S. government was “working closely” with China to contain the disease.

.

For months, Trump himself referred to the illness as “the coronavirus.” In early March, though, several conservative media figures began using Wuhan virus or Chinese virus instead. On March 16, Trump himself began to refer to it as the “Chinese Virus,” prompting commentators to charge that he was racializing the epidemic. In contrast, some early media reports had referred to the illness as “the Wuhan virus,” but most outlets switched to referring to “the coronavirus” not long after it emerged, following the advice of public-health e... concerned about the very possibility of stigma from associating deadly diseases with a particular ethnic group or location. Some conservative outlets subsequently began attacking critics of the ...s change in language as propagandists for the Chinese Communist Party.

THANKS, TRUMP!





Inaction that cost lives

By the final days of February, many public health experts were sounding the alarm about the coronavirus, and some people were listening.

In the San Francisco area, major employers began directing their employees to stay home. Washington State declared a state of emergency. South Korea, Vietnam and other countries ordered aggressive measures.

President Trump did not.

On Feb. 26, he said — incorrectly — that the number of cases was “going very substantially down, not up.” As late as March 10, he promised: “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”

Some local leaders also continued to urge business as usual. In early March, Mayor Bill de Blasio told New Yorkers to “get out on the town despite coronavirus.”

This kind of advice appears to have cost tens of thousands of American lives, according to a new analysis by researchers at Columbia University.

If the U.S. had enacted social-distancing measures a week earlier than it did — in early March rather than mid-March — about 36,000 fewer Americans would have died, the study found. That’s more than one third of the current death toll, which is about 100,000.

If the measures had been in place two weeks earlier, on March 1, the death toll would be 54,000 lower.

By The New York Times

These are hypothetical estimates, of course, and they’re unavoidably imprecise. But they are consistent with real-world evidence from places that responded to the virus more quickly, including San Francisco, Washington State, South Korea and Vietnam — where per capita deaths have been much lower than the U.S. average.

Jeffrey Shaman, the leader of the Columbia research team, told The Times: “It’s a big, big difference. That small moment in time, catching it in that growth phase, is incredibly critical in reducing the number of deaths.”

Related: Trump and some top White House officials are arguing that the reported virus death toll is overstated, The Times reports. Public health experts overwhelmingly reject this view.

A simple way to understand why experts believe the official count is actually understated: The number of Americans who have died in recent weeks is much higher than normal.

nod This graph is very similar to the Trump Death Clock the Washington Post is doing, posted upthread. They say he could've saved about 60% of those who have already died by closing earlier. Saw some expert on TV yesterday who said it was more like 80%.

And Trump is on Twitter this evening stating that he did a great job, that millions would have died if he hadn't acted as quickly as he did, that he made governors look good because of everything he got for them (ventilators, testing kits, etc). And yet, I remember all the times he told states they were on their own, that DC is not a shipping clerk, and how hospitals were having to disguise what they were doing to get equipment to keep the Feds from seizing it.

Trump: "It was hard to get it aroused and it is hard to get it aroused but we got it aroused."
[narrator voice] He's talking about the "American way."

He cannot escape the death count even if it stops being the Fox News lead story. People are dying from the Covid-19 virus every.single.fucking.day. He is losing the senior vote - has done NOTHING to create a safer environment in nursing homes who are not only watching hoards of patients and staff die every day, but will certainly go out of business - would you place your elderly relatives in one of those places?!

eek whoa - Cuomo is breaking it down RIGHT NOW for senators McConnell and Scott regarding NOT providing NY with help for public services (ie - police, first responders, teachers etc) He is saying they are all against the distribution of wealth and economic inequity but they arte all soooooooooooooo willing to take from the richer states and give to the poorer states which is THE SAME THING. These states (NY CA IL MA PA) are bearing the economic brundt of the covid-19 virus. "The virus came from Europe and no one in this government told us!" "This is the UNITED STATES - we believe in doing the right thing, doing right by each other!" When earthquakes hit California we help. When fires hit Colorado we help. When tornadoes and hurricanes hit the southeast - we help. WHat happened to that ethic?"

He is also saying big buisnesses will lay off a lot of people to get lean and build their profits. The economy will not bounce back. He is on fire!

Don't play politics at the expesne of the people you represent. The response to a national crisis is not red or blue - it's red white and blue - united, and smart and loving.



This is an amazing statement. clapping

Clearly shows how a leader of a country should be in time of crises. Trump needs to learn how, because he has failed as president even before Covid19.

The vast majority of people remain vulnerable to the virus, even in areas where the spread has been greatest, new studies found.



How's ^ that for a graph?



Some countries — notably Sweden, and briefly Britain — have experimented with limited lockdowns in an effort to build up immunity in their populations. But even in these places, recent studies indicate that no more than 7 to 17 percent of people have been infected so far. In New York City, which has had the largest coronavirus outbreak in the United States, around 20 percent of the city’s residents have been infected by the virus as of early May, according to a survey of people in grocery stores and community centers released by the governor’s office.

Similar surveys are underway in China, where the coronavirus first emerged, but results have not yet been reported. A study from a single hospital in the city of Wuhan found that about 10 percent of people seeking to go back to work had been infected with the virus.

Viewed together, the studies show herd immunity protection is unlikely to be reached “any time soon,” said Michael Mina, an epidemiologist at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

2nd time the charm? sad


Boss informed me today that another patient that was in our office, and that I did the check in process on, has tested..as 'undetermined' and will be re-tested on Monday. It was brought to the bosses attention that most people who test 'undetermined' will usually test positive on their 2nd test.

How many times am I going to have to go thru this? How many times am I going to have to go thru this before I test positive? confused


On Tuesday the boss gave me a full face shield to wear with a mask, still no rubber gloves....

I've got boxes of gloves here at home, but I don't want to waste my supply when the company should be providing them, I think it's more of a...it doesn't look good type of thing where the company is concerned.


On another note the hospital is offering the employees, free Antibody Testing if we want to be volunteers, I go Monday to do that. Pretty cool, if I have the antibodies then I will donate blood and plasma and be able to help with this fight.


They are required to report all antibody test results to the State Health Department,...I kinda don't like that....

I would be protecting myself but of course it's your call.

The antibody test is really cool. Good luck. I would love to know if I have antibodies or not. As far as reporting goes, I feel the same, but it's probably mostly to map the population with antibodies. Still, just like after 9/11, the Big Brother information grab is on.
