Oh really.  I think you revel in promoting the virus in hopes of hurting Trump's re-election chances.  Your efforts will fail, grasshopper.  People are wise to such ploys.  Count on it.  :classic_laugh:

The President is passing the newly worded H.R. 6201 without Pelosi's abortion and freebie poison pills that have nothing to do with the pandemic. In addition he has called on various companies in the private sector to aid in fighting the spread of COVID-19. Trump is knocking it out of the park on this one between the travel restrictions, funding, and making sure that everyone is involved. You can hate him at your pleasure but he's doing a great job so far.

Trump called on Walmart, CVS, Target, and Walgreens to help slow the spread of the coronavirus as he declares a national emergency

 

President Donald Trump was joined by the CEOs of companies like Target and CVS as they attempt to combat the spread of the coronavirus. 

At a press conference at the White House on Friday, Trump spoke alongside presidents or CEOs of Walgreens, Target, Walmart, CVS, and others. 

Trump said that drive-through testing centers will be set up in the parking lots of those companies' locations across the country. 

"When we got the call yesterday from the White House, we were eager to do our part to help serve the country," said Walmart CEO Doug McMillon. "And given what we are facing that is certainly important to do. We should all be doing that."

Richard Ashworth, president of Walgreens, said the company is "happy to stand in here and help" communities across the United States. 

 

Target CEO Brian Cornell said that "normally, you view us as competitors, but today we're focused on a common competitor, and that's defeating the spread of the coronavirus." 

Cornell also said Target is focused on ensuring that stores can stay open for customers seeking to purchase supplies. 

Trump also thanked Google, which he said has 1,700 engineers assisting in setting up a website regarding testing for the virus. 

CEOs of laboratory, research, and medical device companies also joined Trump, who said that he has called on the labs to expedite efforts to increase the availability of tests for COVID-19. 

Companies like Roche Diagnostics, whose CEO Matt Sause attended the press conference, recently gained expedited approval for coronavirus testing. 

 

Trump said at the press conference that he is declaring a state of emergency in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Here's the full list of executives and companies present during the press conference:

  • Richard Ashworth, President, Walgreens
  • Brian Cornell, Chairman and CEO, Target Corporation
  • Doug McMillon, President and CEO, Walmart Inc.
  • Tom Polen, CEO and President, Becton, Dickinson and Company
  • Stephen Rusckowski, Chairman, President and CEO, Quest Diagnostics
  • Matt Sause, President and CEO, North America, Roche Diagnostics
  • David Pierre, COO, Signify Health
  • Mark Stevenson, Executive Vice President and COO, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.
  • Thomas Moriarty, Executive Vice President, Chief Policy and External Affairs Officer, and General Counsel, CVS Health
  • Bruce Greenstein, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer, LHC Group

Donald is "knocking it out of the park"?  Did you really, really actually write that with a straight face?

That's just an amazing bit of brazen, bald-faced propaganda. Truly hilarious. 

If lying about the number of cases and falsely claiming a vaccine would soon be available and saying the cases would soon be down to zero and blaming others for his own eff-ups and worrying more about his re-election chances than the welfare of people's well-being, etc., is knocking it out of the park, then, yes, Donald is certainly knocking it out of the park, you hilariously incredible shill from fantasy la-la land. 

See my other response to you. What do you think should have happened? What suggestions do you have to improve the response? How is the UK handling it?

In the UK the deaths just doubled, or nearly doubled, in the last 24 hours from 11 to 21.  I think the UK government should do what Italy did and Spain is about to do, which is to close up everything and force people to stay at home. Restaurants, cinemas, shops, most schools, etc., are all still open here.  Maybe they'll finally be forced to shut down everything in the next few days. I'm no expert, but it doesn't make sense to me why they're dragging their feet and not learning from Italy and China. Maybe they've been fooled by the comparatively lower death rate compared to other countries (France, Germany, etc.), but that can quickly change. 

 

I'm not sure if it'll be as bad here as in Italy, but it might be.

 

As for the US, I take no pleasure in saying that I think it will be as bad as in Italy.   The lack of a unified nationwide healthcare system and lack of testing  is a cause for concern.  Italy, by the way, has one of the best healthcare systems in the world, but it's been unable to keep up with the crisis-- though that's partly been because of a concentration of cases in Lombardy.  Maybe in the US it will be more spread out (aside from Seattle, NYC, etc., I suppose).

 What do you think should have happened? What suggestions do you have to improve the response?  

First and foremost, I think Donald shouldn't have lied so much and shouldn't have made it mainly about himself.  And, yes, he certainly has lied. Here, this below is from Wednesday and Thursday:

 

TRUMP: “If an American is coming back or anybody is coming back, we’re testing. We have a tremendous testing setup where people coming in have to be tested.... We’re not putting them on planes if it shows positive, but if they do come here, we’re quarantining. There’s going to be a pretty strong enforcement of quarantine.” -- remarks Thursday.

THE FACTS: That’s not true. All people coming to the U.S. are not subject to mandatory, universal testing, nor are they being forced to quarantine.

As well, his proclamation detailing the broad travel ban that takes effect midnight Friday night on visitors from most of Europe does not specify that everyone allowed in will have to be tested. Trump was probably referring to plans that are expected to be put in place soon to channel those arriving from many European countries to certain airports, where they will receive screening and be subjected to quarantine instructions, just like visitors from China.

--------------------

 

TRUMP: “We are cutting massive amounts of red tape to make antiviral therapies available in record time. These treatments will significantly reduce the impact and reach of the virus.”

THE FACTS: People suffering from COVID-19 or those who get it in the current outbreak should not expect those therapies to be available to them. Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health told a congressional committee Wednesday that while antivirals are being tested, “we don’t know if it works. I don’t want to promise anything.”

An antiviral is a medicine that specifically attacks a virus to hasten recovery. An experimental drug named remdesivir, which was being developed to fight Ebola, is being tested in COVID-19 patients in the U.S. and abroad. There also are studies underway using combinations of some HIV-attacking drugs.

------------------

 

TRUMP: “We will be suspending all travel from Europe, except the United Kingdom, for the next 30 days.”

THE FACTS: That’s not exactly his plan.

First, the restriction does not apply to legal permanent residents of the U.S. or their families when they are returning from Europe. It also does not apply to U.S. citizens coming back from Europe, as Trump acknowledged.

As well, it apparently does not apply to Ireland, Romania, Croatia, Ukraine and several other European states. The proclamation released by the White House says the travel ban will affect the 26 European states in the Schengen Area. That’s most of Europe, but not “all.”

 

------------

 

TRUMP: “These prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo, but various other things as we get approval.”

THE FACTS: That is also wrong. The White House quickly clarified that the restriction on movement from Europe “only applies to human beings, not goods and cargo.”

---------

 

 

TRUMP: “Earlier this week, I met with the leaders of (the) health insurance industry, who have agreed to waive all co-payments for coronavirus treatments, extend insurance coverage to these treatments, and to prevent surprise medical billing.”

THE FACTS: No, they did not say they will cover co-pays for treatment. And Trump’s statement about surprise medical billing is questionable.

As Vice President Mike Pence stated more accurately, the insurers agreed to cover coronavirus testing with no cost sharing — so no co-pays or deductibles. That assurance applies to tests that can confirm or rule out the virus, and doesn’t extend to treatment or to other tests that the patient’s doctor may order. Consumers should check with their insurance company because policies may vary on this. They should not count on the president’s word.

What’s more, in the process of diagnosing COVID-19, other tests may be ordered. Insurers have not pledged to waive cost-sharing for those. Co-pays and deductibles may apply for imaging tests such as X-rays or CT scans of the chest, for example, and hospital stays are also subject to cost-sharing.

Federal programs including Medicare, Medicaid, children’s health insurance and “Obamacare” all cover the coronavirus tests. Of particular importance, clinical diagnostic tests are covered under Medicare with no cost-sharing, a longstanding policy. However, cost-sharing may apply for other tests, such as imaging.

When people get sick from the coronavirus, there currently is no antiviral treatment that can cure the disease. Instead, the current treatment is geared to relieving patients’ symptoms and helping them to recover. For those who are very sick, that can involve using machinery to help them breathe. Insurers cover such treatment based on the terms of the individual’s health plan, including any applicable deductibles and co-pays.

As for “surprise billing,” that’s not something insurers can waive because they’re not the ones who do it. Doctors and hospitals generally spring those surprises.

Overall, says Karen Pollitz of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation: “We don’t have a rule yet that says all insurers must do ‘x,’ so flip your insurance card over and call the 800 number.”

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

There's still a very big problem with access to proper care and encouraging all that should to be tested.

Yes, Tests will be "no charge" with no copay....but if you test positive and admitted, you pay according to your plan and that's not going to be cheap.  So...people are still scared to be tested due to the fear that if it's a positive, then they are most likely on the hook for $$ many don't have available, especially if they aren't working.  

Then there's no real provision for those without healthcare.  I believe in Niagara County that's approximately 23,000 people or about 1 in 10.  Those people are going to be the walking zombies.  They'll have it, get tested, but have no means to treat it.

Lately I haven't had as much time as usual to waste on here with this nonsense, but my predictions were and still are that the establishment(cough cough) would try to ram through legislation and/or executive order(similar to after 9/11 and the Patriot act, which was written in advance) to cash in on the media-generated HYSTERIA, that would be subversive to the Constitution(and Americans in general).    It's a tried and true formula to take more liberty from the sheep in exchange for a feeling of security from big brother.

Rahm Emmanuel(cough cough), Obongo's first chief of staff, famously bragged "Never let a good crisis go to waste"...the one-sentence legacy he sadly left, even more infamous than his ambling around the White House in the nude.

I haven't kept up with this nonsense, but even from Sack's post I can see that as usual Pelosi and others tried to sneak in unrelated legislation....a sickening fact the sanctimonious in this thread choose to gloss over, being it is sadly so common.  Sad, very sad. 

Not sure if it's been mentioned here yet, but Ive also heard something about being able to install martial law with crowds over 250....think about that, it should be chilling to any true patriot, regardless of your self labels. Scary, very scary. (far more scary than the stupid virus to most sentient folks with any knowledge of our Constitution, which obviously nobody in the Soros' funded caravans has, and sadly too few actual Americans have).

For a Professor you're intellectually lazy, your entire argument was a cut-and-paste from an anti-Trump article and worse yet each fact check was not correcting an outright lie but poking at specific details of broader statements.

Again, no one is saying that this isn't a tragic situation but I've yet to see what YOU think should have been done to handle this. Bear in mind that up until a week ago the Democrats were screaming that any travel bans were racist and prior to that when this virus first became known they were still more concerned with impeachment.

Think Tank Complains “Coronavirus Is Killing Globalization as We Know It” - Says it’s been a “gift to nationalists.”

 

The founder of a globalist think tank has written an article for Foreign Policy in which he complains that the coronavirus outbreak is “killing globalization as we know it.”

Philippe Legrain, founder of the Open Political Economy Network (OPEN) says that the spread of COVID-19 “has been a gift to nativist nationalists and protectionists.”

Legrain argues that coronavirus could be “the nail in the coffin for the current era of globalization” because it has “highlighted the downsides of extensive international integration while fanning fears of foreigners and providing legitimacy for national restrictions on global trade and flows of people.”

He adds that the crisis will have a lasting impact on undermining America’s reliance on international supply chains and provide “political fodder for nationalists who favor greater protectionism and immigration controls.”

“The coronavirus crisis threatens to usher in a less globalized world,” concludes Legrain. “Once the pandemic and panic abate, those who believe that openness to people and products from around the world is generally a good thing will need to make the case for it in fresh and persuasive ways.”

 

Foreign Policy is published by The Washington Post Company (now Graham Holdings Company) and has a distinctly globalist bias.

Legrain’s point that coronavirus has provided legitimacy for restrictions of flows of people is borne out by the fact that countries like Russia and Singapore, which imposed strong border controls to stop COVID-19 back in January, have largely escaped the worst of pandemic.

In his latest column, conservative icon Pat Buchanan also highlights how coronavirus has served to expose the weaknesses of globalization.

“It may one day be said that the coronavirus delivered the deathblow to the New World Order, to a half-century of globalization and to the era of interdependence of the world’s great nations,” writes Buchanan.
