New York state has now become an epicenter for the coronavirus outbreak as the number of daily confirmed cases for the United States is fast approaching that of Italy. As it stands though, the US medical infrastructure is able to cope with the influx of people needing hospitalization, but it is reported to be near capacity in some places. New York state has been declared a major disaster by President Trump, who has ordered federal assistance.
The number of confirmed cases worldwide has surpassed 300,000 and 12,900 deaths, and many areas of the world have been put on a partial or full quarantine.
This is a picture from a parking garage at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, Tennesse.
If the numbers in China are to believed then Italy has just set a new daily record for the number of new cases of coronavirus 6,557 and the amount of deaths 793. As their medical infrastructure is failing to come to terms with the number of people requiring hospitalization now.
Spain seems to be going the same way as Italy fast.
On March 20th the US daily case count was fast approaching Italy.
4 US senators have been accused of insider trading following a closed senate briefing on the Corona Virus in February. Richard Burr, Kelly Loeffler, Dianne Feinstein, and James Inhofe sold a significant amount of stocks on February 13th following the meeting, while at the same time reassuring the public that the threat from the Corona Virus to Americans was not serious.
Not surprisingly all four of the accused senators have claimed ignorance.
Corona chan continues to haunt the Fed as the markets are in turmoil and the Dow Jones is down 33% in a month. Unemployment and recession are looming as the world could be headed for a depression.
It remains to be seen if the Fed can print their way out of this one.
President Trump has held strong against idiot journalists attacking him for stating the virus came from China. The Chinese government, the CCP, has said the Coronavirus is a bioweapon made by the United States. The fact that China has admitted here that the virus is a bioweapon is of particular interest. But it is very obvious to everyone except some "woke" journalists and politicians that the virus came from China.
Anyone shouting racism for Trump pointing out the virus came from China is simply engaging in spin to cover for the CCP, who at this time still have significant financial clout over the US media.
It would be an insult to every normal person suffering through the virus or the long term economic consequences of the virus to simply return to business as usual with China. At the very least China should be kicked out of the WTO and returned to the country they were prior to George Bush Snr turning them into the globalized monster they are now.
With the exception of Hong Kong, who should be granted their full independence and obviously Taiwan who should be protected.
A lot of people in China are still unaccounted for and it's still very unclear what is going on behind the great firewall of China, or whether China really has the coronavirus under control as they claim.
Not good from California as they seem to be failing to come to terms with containing the coronavirus.
Literally everyone who saw this coming in January.
Dr. Fauci of the CDC has reinforced the point that open borders have facilitated the spread of the coronavirus, especially in Italy. President Trump's decision to lock down travel from China and more recently Europe has bought the United States time to prepare and may have saved an order of magnitude of thousands of lives compared to a more progressive government when we look at Italy now going forward.
This did not age well...
