Obama admin did 1 million test in a month with swine flu ... this is ... wow
This is a travesty ... a tragedy ... and a horror
I think wed be equal to Italy in number of cases. Equal in terms of absolute value, not proportion of the population. Italy is around 60 million - so less than 20% of the US population.

Not believing this until I hear it from a reputable source.
I cant find any other stories about it, which is odd for such a major statement.
Although if I were very sick, I'd definitely want to try it
on the correct discussion board.
Thats some pretty extreme RW source youre citing there.
"The Lagos State Health Ministry issued a brief statement saying there was no 'hard evidence that chloroquine is effective in prevention or management of coronavirus infection,'" CNN noted. "Chloroquine is used to treat malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis."
Despite warnings from health experts that chloroquine has not been tested for treating COVID-19, Trump falsely claimed during a press briefing Sunday that the evidence for chloroquine's effectiveness in treating the coronavirus is "very strong."
"Why should we be testing it in a test tube for a year and a half when we have thousands of people that are very sick, and we can use it on those people and maybe make them better?" the president asked.
Editor's Note: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated Dr. William Grace's relationship to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Dr. Grace is not employed by the hospital and his opinions given below are his own.
"we're going to have the best infection rate in the world. the BEST! no one will beat us!!"
Keep ignoring all the warnings, America. With that "'can do" attitude we can be NUMBER ONE in no time! WE'RE #1, WE'RE #1, WE'RE#1.
We're going to win so much. You're going to get tired of winning. youre going to say, Please Mr. President, I have a headache. Please, don't win so much. This is getting terrible."
The only country under control is SK and drumpf refuses to get sufficient tests because he is deliberately trying to make us sick and blame it on the Dems. He's profiting off our sickness and made us way more sick to ensure his profits when he insisted on ony using test kits from a tiny failing co. in which he is part owner and Jared's brother is the main owner. AFter delaying the test for 11 weeks, in which the virus spread mercilessly and he encouraged us to keep spreading, he now says it's actually real and is blaming Dev governors for his personal abject failure. He still isn't taking the WHO test kits and we are still far behind the curve in testing. He said on 3/3 anyone could get tested, it's now 3/23 and that's still a lie to this day.
There has never been a worst person in office at such a critical time.
Thank you for this. It's hard for my to grasp numbers and this helps.. Helps to scare me sh*tless!!! 58yrs old with COPD here-presented with fever, cough, body aches. Been in isolation since I got tested last Thursday. Hospital called today to tell me it would be until Wed or Thurs before I get results. When I asked why so long the nurse answered "Because your last name is Cunningham, not Pence" ... she was being sarcastic, she sounded disgusted at the situation but was very reassuring.
Anyway, everyone stay put, let's SHUT THIS THING DOWN!!!
