you think the lack of testing is killing people and not the under laying health problems and age
No I think the numbers are inflated because a lot of the sickest people have priority.
you realize there should be more dead with a lack of testing
He's saying the death rate is actually lower. The media has people thinking they're going to die if they get it. Could you imagine if people freaked out like this about the flu every year?
Half the cases are in new york
Death rate and total deaths are different.
Having it concentrated mainly on testing the sickest and most at risk can inflate the death rate.
I misread your comment
In the old days beer drinking was involved. You can try that.
Thank you, puala dean
Save your money, lay offs are coming soon.
We are the essential grunts the Governments sends into the front lines.
Volume went up this week. Had some hourlies reactivated for service this week after being later off.
In what way? We aren’t sure who may or may not be infected on our daily routine. I’d say Nurses, doctors and anyone else in the healthcare industry are the grunts here. They will shortly be without proper safety equipment, and they know the person is infected.
Agree. They are not testing if they can help it. That way the number of confirmed cases will be a lot closer to the deaths.
Harder to lie about the deaths. If they tested everyone instantly tomorrow then the"curve" would be flattened.
The whole testing thing makes my stomach turn; seems very coy and political. How can it be possible that other countries have 90%of their inhabitants tested, meanwhile we have guys getting sent away from the dr saying they have no tests; or being told to camp out at home and come back when/if your symptoms persist and get worse?
And Mike Pence has not got one last i heard. Does that make any kind of sense?
It can't, because it isn't true.
Yeah upon further review, 90% isn’t even close. Not sure where I heard that one.
Exaggerated point aside, the US testing response is still pitiful in comparison to other, less flourished countries

Ya unfortunately the tests we started making a week after the virus genome was made public had a common technical problem with one of the reagents used.
If China hadn't lied to the international community about their outbreak we could have gotten ahead of this thing.
