    Today, Dr. Fauci announced we are entering"the storm" when the spike occurs. Italy's already there. They also have the world's largest population of elderly with co-morbidities and they kiss each other as a cultural greeting. Nothing to panic about here.

    It's sad that alot of that is simply because their kids and grandkids never move out of the grandparents homes. Failure to launch for the whole country.

    Hard to launch in a democratic socialist economy and tax structure.

    I have a colleague in Venice, Italy. E-mailed her earlier in the week and she was working from home, but have not heard from her since. When COVID19 crisis first hit Italy she was concerned because of the number of people she encounters on a daily basis. Hoping all is well for her and her daughter.

    I really hate to say this but I feel quite certain that the early attempts to minimize this pandemic and characterize it as a democratic hoax by our stable genius of a president is almost certain to take the greatest toll of lives in this country than any other on the planet. He tried for over two months to convince people that this was nothing serious and it would magically disappear sadly many Americans still believe this and are not following CDC guidelines. Good luck everyone the real **** is fixing to hit in the coming weeks!

    ^^^ He is on target.

    Do any of you watch the daily crisis briefings. Trump does not do a good job and the real briefing is left to the various Heads of Departments. Even Pence has stopped trying to rationalize or defend what Trump says.

    If you aren't watching the daily briefings, you should. A lot of good info from Dr. Fauci and the others.

    My thought was we will see a spike when the large homeless populations in bigger cities dies. They are in generally poor health and don't seek help

    Italy has ordered 2000 respirators - breathing machines for hospitals - and they are using the military to help assemble them. This will take 4 months, so they are NOT predicting this will end any time soon.

    I predict Trump will announce a nationwide lockdown soon, quite possibly tomorrow.

    Trump has been attempting to stay POSITIVE for the sake of the country. No need for a hysterical she-man like most prog's; they only want to inflame and produce anxiety in the population.
