    Republican and Democrat Governors alike still can't get through to Trump. Testing woefully inadequate - Trump insists it's the best in the world. States still competing against each other for vital stuff, Cuomo likening it to bidding on ebay. Apparently still no action on this by an incompetent administration. Seems like governors are being willfully ignored at this point.

    Source and facts please - other news reports show test kits streaming from factories and the increase in testing is reflected in the increased number of people identified as testing positive for the virus.

    NYC still has a surplus of ventilator machines in storage --- Per Cuomo himself.

    Another fact - the feds dont do the testing - state organizations and the national guard (state level) do.

    You are making shit up.

    Nancy Pelosi - the botox dripping cunt - after attempting to politicizing and delaying the aid package in Congress --- dares to blame Trump for not reacting quickly enough on the virus is upended by facts with Video showing her telling people to come to the China Town parade in SF and not be afraid of crowds or going out. She was doing this while criticizing Trump who took early action to stop travel from China and S Korea and putting restrictions on the border.

    Similar video of Deblasio and other NYC officials doing the same thing 5 weeks ago.

    "
    But some of Trump's response to COVID-19 was actually proactive.

    In late January, just days after the first American COVID-19 case was confirmed in Seattle, the Trump administration announced travel restrictions on China and other Asian countries and a mandatory 14-day quarantine for U.S. citizens returning from China's Hubei province, where COVID-19 originated.

    Hypocrisy and lies from the left never end.

    "But just one month ago, as COVID-19 was ravaging China and beginning to emerge in the west, Pelosi told her constituents to practically ignore warnings about the virus.

    Amid concerns that Chinese Americans were experiencing racial backlash, Pelosi urged San Franciscans to visit San Fran's Chinatown, referring to COVID-19 as some far-away reality.

    "It's exciting to be here, especially at this time, to be able to be unified with our community," the California Democrat said on Feb. 24. "We want to be vigilant about what is out there in other places. We want to be careful about how we deal with it, but we do want to say to people 'Come to Chinatown, here we are — we're, again, careful, safe — and come join us.'"

    If there were no such thing as lies - liberals wouldn't be able to speak.

    An article where Cuomo was quoted as saying we have rocketed ahead in scheduled testing - from March 16th - calling into questions JimP's BS claim.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/health/heal...menal-increase-coronavirus-tests-u-s-n1160656

    March 16 (15 days ago) --- "We have had a phenomenal increase in testing," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday at a press conference where he announced there were 950 cases of the virus statewide, the highest of any state in the country. When the outbreak first came to New York, the state set a target goal of running 1,000 tests a day. By the end of this week, the state expects to be able to perform 7,000 tests per day — an "exponential increase of what we have done," Cuomo said. Along with the uptick in tests, Americans should expect to see a rise in confirmed cases, he added.

    In the past couple of weeks, commercial labs including Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp have started testing for COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus.

    Both Quest and LabCorp said in statements to NBC News that they will each have the ability to perform more than 10,000 tests per day by the end of the week and 20,000 tests per day by the end of March. The trade association both the labs belong to, the American Clinical Laboratory Association, said in a statement that "assuming there are no delays or shortages of necessary materials and supplies, commercial capacity is expected to exceed 280,000 tests per week by April 1.

    Good news - Seattle - once a hot-spot for the Wuhan Corona Virus --- has seen a 20% drop in related hospitalizations.

    https://www.seattletimes.com/seattl...ox_tw_m&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1585622282

    Hospitalizations for patients with symptoms of COVID-19-like illnesses in Washington declined last week by more than 20%, a hopeful sign for the region and a nation gripped by the coronavirus pandemic.

    The state Department of Health (DOH) survey, covering the seven-day period that ended Saturday, tallied 193 admissions of patients with symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath, down from 251 the previous week. This also marks the end of a monthlong rise in these admissions, which dates back to the last week in February, when only 61 hospitalizations of COVID-19-like illness were counted in Washington state.

    I actually watched that given all the coronavirus downtime. At no point did Cuban give Trump credit for getting ahead of the virus. At one point he praised Trump for getting out of the way and letting the experts lead. Gotta question Mark on that one. What expert was saying the church's should be filled on Easter? He has been too little and too late as far as listening to experts. Wish Trump would get entirely out of the way.

    Well it seems Trump was right about the Chinese all along - they are our enemy (sorry Dems not Russia) - Chinese Company CEO talks about making defective thermomemters to hide fever in Americans to help spread the virus.

    As Trump has declared and taking action on - we need to move supply lines out of China - and return these Communist bastards back to a nation of starving peasant farmers. Americans first - at all costs.

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/20...ce=wnd&utm_medium=wnd&utm_campaign=syndicated

    That way Americans who are sick will not register as having a fever and will then spread the coronavirus.

    Writer Jennifer Zeng posted this thread on Twitter.

    Zhang Xuandong, owner of Haofeng Electronic Technology Co. in Dongguan, #Guangdong Province in #China, says in a chat group of orehead thermometer producers which has 178 members, “Produce some fake products and sell them to the US. They (thermometers) should read 36.5 ºC when the actual temperature is 39 ºC. In this way, more and more American people will be infected.

    Never forget where the Wuhan Virus came from and how it was able to spread w/out warning.


    Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China.

    Once again full of shit - Quote -from Cuban - "I am not a fan of Trump but give credit when credit is earned and he has."
    And that is someone who doesn't like him.

    Second - like the rest of the Democrats you lie - Trump never said the Church's SHOULD be filled by Easter - He said he would like to see that. It was an aspirational statement - being calm and offering hope as well as help. That is what leaders do.

    Can you imagine the corrupt shit show that this would be if Hillary was sitting there. Hell she abandoned four Americans to their death in Benghazi --- she would be in the millions now.

    Trump started earlier than any drooling american hating Dem in the end of January = while Pelosi and Cuomo and De Blasio were telling people to go to the gay pride and Chinatown parades and to use the subways. He closed the China and Korea travel off and was called racist for it.

    Now NY and California are epicenters of this source because of the delay and obstruction and mendacity of Democrat Govenors, Mayors, and congressmen.

    Cuban didn't credit him for "getting ahead of the virus.". If he did - who cares? He'd be as wrong as you.

    Nope I am right - Trump was responding to the virus --- when you Democrats were calling him racist and telling everyone to go to large group meetings and not be "afraid" of the virus or asian people. Trump brought industry, resources, and cooperation to the problem.

    It was your cunt Pelosi and that dripping dick Schumer who delayed the aid bill while Americans suffered under the democrat imposed police state - so they could corrupt the voting system and give money away to illegal aliens and underserving migrants and the Kennedy center. YOU delayed aid for politics.

    Face it JimP - I am always right.

    You are logically hampered because you are a liberal. I feel for you - but can't cure your condition.

    More ineffectual liberal "response" to the Corona Virus -- Seattle Police Chief - tells residents to call 9-11 if they "hear racist talk".

    WTF??? Is that what 9-11 is for?




    Police Chief Carmen Best and former KING 5 reporter Lori Matsukawa put out a video on Monday claiming there is zero tolerance for hate crimes against Asian Americans during the coronavirus pandemic.
    “Washington state is no place for hate,” Best said in the video.

    “We will document and investigate every reported crime, even racist name-calling should be reported to police,” she said. “We take this information very seriously.”

    She urged, “If you aren’t sure a hate crime occurred, call 911. We’re here to help and we’ll respond to investigate.”

    “There’s no place for that in our community,” Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett told K5 News.

    QD - a lot of outright misinformation in that post. A lot.

    For example - pulled from your "source": February 2018: The Washington Post writes “CDC to cut by 80 percent efforts to prevent global disease outbreak.” The meat of the story is “Countries where the CDC is planning to scale back include some of the world’s hot spots for emerging infectious disease, such as China, Pakistan, Haiti, Rwanda and Congo.”

    That Washington Post article was incorrect they had to print an update. That program was not cut. The funds (from 2012) - expired. It was not a permanent appropriation but a fixed set of funds that were spent. There was no re-authorization or additional funding provided by Congress. So this claim by your source is false.

    He also cites delays in testing -- well it turns out a decades old law made the CDC the only producer of tests. "The administration of President Donald Trump was tripped up by government rules and conventions, former officials and public health experts say. Instead of drafting the private sector early on to develop tests, as South Korea did, U.S. health officials relied, as is customary, on test kits prepared by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some of which proved faulty. HHS oversees the separate operations of the FDA and CDC, key agencies involved in responding to the pandemic. The CDC was responsible for developing the initial test kits for the virus. Then, under longstanding protocols, the FDA needed to approve the test before it could be sent to state and local labs around the country. " (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...-to-test-people-for-coronavirus-idUSKBN2153BW)

    It was Trump that reversed that rule to get private industry in play where now we have overcome that issue. It was a limitation that he inherited and he fixed. Since we went directly to the private sector - not only did we start surpassing others on the number of daily tests - we developed even better once. Abbot labs created a test two weeks ago that can run in 5 minutes. Another lab last Friday is now issues one that only takes two minutes. So - getting government out of the way - made it better. Thank you President Trump.

    Now - it was established federal law that also complicated this in other areas. Trump declared a state of emergency in late Janaury - which sped the way for the development of vaccines. However, it had another unintended effect - the law that supports this declaration also made it mandatory for all privately developed tests to undergo CDC review and FSA approval. I will reference the same NBC/Reuters article for this factual reference --- "
    The U.S. emergency declaration issued in late January created additional hurdles that hindered a wider expansion in testing, according to former federal officials and lab professionals.

    The declaration eased the way for drugmakers to pursue vaccines and antiviral treatments for COVID-19. But public health experts said that the same declaration made it harder to expand diagnostic testing outside the CDC.

    That’s because the declaration required diagnostic tests developed by individual labs, such as those at hospitals or universities, to undergo greater scrutiny than in non-emergencies - presumably because the stakes are higher.

    “Paradoxically, it increased regulations on diagnostics while it created an easier pathway for vaccines and antivirals,” said Dr. Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security. “There was a real foul-up with diagnostic tests that has exposed a flaw in the United States’ pandemic response plan
    .”"

    So long standing law and regulations hampered any response --- Trump was wise to cut through this and push the private sector to address the issue and not rely on traditional federal rules and buearacracy.

    Fact is in late January - while the Democrats were mentally masturbating over impeachment - Trump was restricting travel and was resisted by ALL the Democrats and other SJW morons about being racist. Italy - opened its borders and encouraged everyone to hug a Chinese person - and look where they are.


    This is a rare fail on your part sir.
