    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.

    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.

    MyTripisCut “They” are coming for us.

    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?

    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.
