Trump now in open dispute with health officials as virus rages

Five months into a still-raging pandemic that has killed more than 130,000 Americans, the long-simmering tensions between President Donald Trump and the health experts who staff ...overnment have escalated from private griping to shrugging disagreement to now open dispute.

The result, people at those agencies say, is a new sense of demoralization as they continue their attempts to fight a once-in-a-generation health crisis while simultaneously navigating the whims of a President who has shown little interest or understanding of their work.
That Trump does not trust nor follow the advice of experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease specialist, is hardly new. The President has not attended a meeting of his coronavirus task force in months and recently its sessions have been held outside the White House, including on Wednesday at the headquarters of the Department of Education. Fauci was told to participate in the meeting remotely by videoconference, preventing him from participating in a midday task force press briefing.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said later that it's a "decision for the task force" who appears at coronavirus briefings. Asked if the President still has confidence in Fauci, McEnany said only that Trump "has confidence in the conclusions of our medical experts."
Still, the President has complained to aides in meetings for months that Fauci's television appearances -- which have been sharply c...hite House -- often seem to contradict his own message. As early as March, Trump was growing frustrated that Fauci's forecasts for the virus seemed less optimistic than his own, but largely avoided public rebukes.
At the same time, many of Trump's aides have viewed the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with deep skepticism for months, believing its role in early testing missteps to have been a critical failure and viewing more recent leaks of draft guidance from the agency as attempts to circumvent the White House.
Yet as cases surge across the country and Trump's handling of the crisis causes his reelection prospects to dim, he is taking his quarrels with Fauci and the CDC public in striking new fashion.
Donald Trump should forfeit running for President again! haha lol biggrin eek smile mad

Sweden's controversial anti-lockdown strategy resulted in a high death toll and no real economic gain, data shows

  • Sweden's unusual coronavirus strategy has not resulted in significant economic gains, data indicates, and has instead left the country with a far deadlier outbreak than its Nordic neighbors.
  • Sweden has never issued a formal lockdown and has instead encouraged its citizens to stay home when they're sick and maintain social distancing when in public.
  • But Sweden's coronavirus mortality rate is among the highest in the world, and, according to Reuters, Sweden's central bank this month forecast that the country's economy would shrink by 4.5% this year.
  • Jacob Kirkegaard, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington, told The New York Times that Sweden "literally gained nothing" economically from the risky policy.

85% of these people indicate they haven't had any symptoms or symptoms that mild that they thought it was a simple cold.

85% of the infected people... let that figure sink in.

oh my god really???

so you mean that it is exactly like experts have been saying since the start of the pandemic? namely that the VAAAST majority go unnoticed wihtout symptoms? hmmmmm. oh. wow. stop the press....



and the new information in this finding you offer to us is what exactly?
maybe that some dumbshits have not been paying attention all along and find "sensational" news in old info, which every informed person was aware since the beginning anyway?


oh yes, indeed, such misinformed ignorant idiots do exist, thanks for pointing that out. so CLEARLY.

now let that sink in

That's crazy. Our government is adamant that schools will resume in Sept with no social distancing requirements (apart from the teacher has to stand at the front and not move around the room) within 'bubbles' of up to 240 kids (one year group) and fines for parents who keep their kids away! No masks required and teachers not allowed to wear them, but kids must wear masks on the school buses too!

That’s crazy. They’ll be in the same, closed room breathing in the same room air, and yet no masks required? That’s not playing it safe.

Wait, parents will get fined for not sedning their kids to a covid cesspool? Can't they just opt to home school or tutor?

That's what they are saying right now - that we'll be fined if we don't send them. Let's see in September what they do. I can't see them enforcing it.

It's doubtful. I am worried about schools opening back up, though.

Ah what the heck... just for the fun of it.... one last time.



I would expect a significant drop in daily deaths within 2 weeks of a strict quarantine & lockdown like Spain, Italy & France did. (what else would you do a quarantine for??)

Everyting shut down, no movement of people allowed (with some minor exceptions)
That should have resulted in close to zero transmissions and a significant drop in deaths.

A cliff in the graph.

There wasn't.

Italy fully locked down on March 9th, yet the peak of the 7-days rolling avg. daily deaths curve lies at March 26th. and gradually goes down from there on, allmost in a straight 45 degree line.


you are so correct.

the virus is tansmitted by contact of people

so why should reducing contact of people reduce the spread of the virus?
that is unscientific and makes no sense whatsoever!! none!!!1!!1!11!




oh... wait...


it does




but who knows, maybe the sharp tunraround in graphs in countries that reacted quickly, correlates with the number of pirates? or global warming? or Gluten? the number of Golden Girls re-runs? who knows?



Eugenics-Flat-Earth-Tweety is at it again spreading ignorant conspiracy bullshit again LMFAO


geeez... get lost, clown. dont't you have a 5G tower to attack somewhere?

All it's saying is:

  • Do not come in without intent to purchase (do not loiter)
  • Wear a face mask
  • Pay via card, not cash
  • Keep a social distance of 6 ft apart
  • Only 5 customers can be in the store at one time
  • If you are coughing please leave the store


With so many people who are rudely NOT complying with the restrictions (including face coverings) that have been created for everyone's safety and protection - I'd say this sign is SPOT ON with its intent and instruction.



It is probably the safest place to shop!

Agree! Look at that clean shiny door with the professional (and hilarious) sign. Shelves are beautifully stocked. I would definitely purchase there, and follow Plava's rules while I'm doing it. The one thing I read differently is about the plastic payment. Corner stores need to take cash, mine would not survive w/out it. Large group of consumers people with no access to credit, all different reasons. Just don't pull it out all sweaty when you pay.

I don't think I have used cash in months - I thought the preference was to not handle money that passes through who knows how many hands in a day. But, yeah - definitely not cash that sits in a sweaty bra or shoe lol

And the current adminstration's response is to brag about how great they've handled it. disbelief


Coronavirus Deaths Take a Long-Expected Turn for the Worse

The virus has killed more than 130,000 people in US, a half-million worldwide



A long-expected upturn in U.S. coronavirus deaths has begun, driven by fatalities in states in the South and West, according to data on the pandemic.

The number of deaths per day from the virus had been falling for months, and even remained down as states like Florida and Texas saw explosions in cases and hospitalizations — and reported daily U.S. infections broke records several times in recent days.

Scientists warned it wouldn't last. A coronavirus death, when it occurs, typically comes several weeks after a person is first infected. And experts predicted states that saw increases in cases and hospitalizations would, at some point, see deaths rise too. Now that's happening.

“It's consistently picking up. And it's picking up at the time you'd expect it to," said William Hanage, a Harvard University infectious diseases researcher.

According to an Associated Press analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University, the seven-day rolling average for daily reported deaths in the U.S. has increased from 578 two weeks ago to 664 on July 10 — still well below the heights hit in April. Daily reported deaths increased in 27 states over that time period, but the majority of those states are averaging under 15 new deaths per day. A smaller group of states has been driving the nationwide increase in deaths.

California is averaging 91 reported deaths per day while Texas is close behind with 66, but Florida, Arizona, Illinois, New Jersey and South Carolina also saw sizable rises. New Jersey's recent jump is thought to be partially attributable to its less frequent reporting of probable deaths.

The impact has already been felt by families who lost kin — and by the health care workers who tried to save them.

Rublas Ruiz, a Miami intensive care unit nurse, recently broke down in tears during a birthday dinner with his wife asee as many deaths (as in the spring). But we're going to see a total number of deaths, which is going to be large.”
