Corona Virus - How bad is it going to be?

Recommended Posts

Just watch the trump only presser...........think he's gotten a bit of the message that it is himself that is tanking is poll numbers............he still was a bit racist, still deflected & lied some.........but he didn't stick around to spar with the press & call them fake & enemies of the people ..........pretty much, go to the podium.........read the script as written, got in the usual fabrications, deflections & lies...........took a few questions where the press stayed on the virus concerns & he bailed out - Thinking the change from parscale to whoever it is now told him to to turn it into a trump vs the world battle where he claims to be the victim.

Might be too late to save his lousy numbers but it was a noticeable change in demeanor

Seems promising.  Therapeutics are probably the more realistic solution in the near term.

I know little to nothing about how medical professionals picks and chooses who gets the experimental drug and who gets the placebo. I feel sorry for the patients who got the placebo and didn't make it. When patients are given a placebo are they monitored for a certain amount of time and then given the experimental drug?

It’s a grim arithmetic to move the ball forward in the science of new drugs, but a true control group is vital for measuring the effect of a new drug. With Remdivisir a few months back they saw immediate benefit so they gave it to the placebo group, but I don’t think that’s usual.

It's not, and to be fair in some trials it would be preferable to be in the placebo group because they find that the drug does more harm than good.

Those that get the bad side effects likely say what the hell was I thinking volunteering to be a guinea pig,

Well he still managed to wish a sex trafficker well, so there's that.

Did you read some of the comments at the bottom of the page? JFC.

Masks don't work but somehow virtually the entire civilized world is doing better than us with less restrictions...

It’s because of testing obviously /sarcasm/

But I was told that the death increases starting in July were simply due to reporting delays from the 4th of July weekend and not due to the infection spike in June. 

Cheer the increased deaths while you can, deaths lag, but cases and hospitalizations are past their peak in the sunbelt and deaths will quickly race toward zero in the coming weeks. After that what area of the country will have not been affected? We are very, very close to herd immunity, which is seeming to occur at about 500 deaths/million

I'm not cheering anything, you +++++wit. I'm saying that some of you shouldn't have decided to shit all over what looked pretty obviously to be a correlation of deaths to the infection spike. Instead, you morons continued to spike the football, refuse to wear masks, and acted like this wasn't a big deal.
