    Who said it was President Trump’s fault?

    He is responsible for having a plan to manage this pandemic.

    I have a coworker with a clear history of cardio, and he was covid positive in June. He developed moderate symptoms in 3 days, and was hospitalized for 2 weeks (with 4 days in the ICU) because of hypoxemia.

    He has not returned to work because he remains tachycardia and has resting tremors in his LUE. He is 36 years old.

    How? By downplaying it, not following YOUR Team’s recommendation (Surgeon General, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Covid Team), not following the CDC guidelines, and NOT having a plan?

    If you WANT to believe he is managing this you can because the President’s actions are saying the opposite or showing he is not doing a good job of managing this pandemic.

    Good info here:

    What COVID-19 is doing to the heart, even after recovery

    https://www.heart.org/en/news/2020/09/03/what-covid-19-is-doing-to-the-heart-even-after-recovery

    “Nearly one-fourth of those hospitalized with COVID-19 have been diagnosed with cardiovascular complications, which have been shown to contribute to roughly 40% of all COVID-19-related deaths.

    Again, rolling 7-day average is higher than it's been (by about double) than it has been since June and trending up. Cases are also trending WAY up.

    That's legitimate cause for concern, especially with flu season just around the corner.

    2020 isn't 2019. I'm not a public health expert and neither are you. I'm sure there are probably a number of things that could explain the data.

    Since you like CDC numbers:

    https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6942e2.htm

    "From late January to early October 2020, the US had 299,000 more deaths than the typical number during the same time period in previous years."

    So, your "COVID deaths are being mis-recorded theory" doesn't really hold water.

    Why are you afraid to look at the data? You look silly by refusing to even take a look because you know the numbers don't match the BS that you are shoveling. It's even Michigan specific. It's irrefutable that Michigan's weekly death number is the same now as it was before WuFlu hit. The numbers ust don't lie. So either deaths from all other causes are magically much lower and we have lots of WuFlu deaths. OR we have lots of other deaths erroneously being attributed to WuFlu. You look foolish trying to argue that it's the former.

    I never knew that I was amongst so many epidemiologists until like February when they all started coming out of the woodwork. Maybe they should put their schooling to work for them and quit tending bar, cutting hair, or whatever else it is they are doing now.

    I've looked at them - why would you assume I didn't? Talk about "looking silly".

    Democrats are now shifting to tell people to vote in person after they aren't happy with mail in numbers. So after scaring people about how they'll die if they vote in person, they're trying to roll that back.

    That number is total deaths, right? Not just "total deaths from diseases of all kinds."
    So that number includes people (including cops) murdered by BLM and Antifa or by illegal aliens who killed someone because Congress wouldn't support ICE and the Wall, fentanyl ODs, etc.?
