    Now that Trump has Covid will his followers wear masks as he did yesterday? Of course if they get sick they won't be flown to Walter Reed.

    This article will be posted in two threads as it demonstrates how our president and his administration have failed Americans.

    'Dying in a Leadership Vacuum'

    "Covid-19 has created a crisis throughout the world. This crisis has produced a test of leadership. With no good options to combat a novel pathogen, countries were forced to make hard choices about how to respond. Here in the United States, our leaders have failed that test. They have taken a crisis and turned it into a tragedy.

    The magnitude of this failure is astonishing. According to the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering,1 the United States leads the world in Covid-19 cases and in deaths due to the disease, far exceeding the numbers in much larger countries, such as China. The death rate in this country is more than double that of Canada, exceeds that of Japan, a country with a vulnerable and elderly population, by a factor of almost 50, and even dwarfs the rates in lower-middle-income countries, such as Vietnam, by a factor of almost 2000. Covid-19 is an overwhelming challenge, and many factors contribute to its severity. But the one we can control is how we behave. And in the United States we have consistently behaved poorly."

    'Identify the Different Symptoms of the Flu and Covid-19'

    "As influenza season approaches, some Americans, and especially parents, are worried that, if they or their children should become ill, it may not be easy to know which disease they have — the flu or Covid-19. They are correct. Most symptoms of the two diseases are so similar that, short of a test — or two or three tests — it won’t be possible to know for sure. But there are some clues. (And it is possible to have both infections at the same time; some patients in China this year were found to have both.)"

    'State confirms 124 COVID-19 cases tied to Sturgis Rally, more out of state'

    "As of Sept. 8, the South Dakota Department of Health reported 124 cases among South Dakota residents who got sick after attending the rally, the Argus Leader reported. State health officials have tracked those cases through contact tracing.

    The Associated Press reported that at least 290 people in 12 states have also tested positive since attending the rally.

    One person has died so far from COVID-19 who attended the rally, a Minnesota man in his 60s with underlying health conditions, Minnesota Department of Health Infectious Disease Director Kris Ehresmann said at a briefing on Sept. 9." USA Today

    I recall reading that they were guesstimating 200,000+ infections from Sturgis. Oops. If the media would strive not to be so sensationalist at times, more ppl would trust them and #TRE45ON's "fake news" meme wouldn't resonate.

    I don't remember a figure that high but given the current situation and the spread of the virus today it doesn't matter much. As for the use of 'fake news' that is a tough one as it is aimed at news you don't like. An example today is watching Fox, which I consider state media today, versus CNN or MSNBC. Fox doesn't cover Covid in the way the others do as they are Trump supporters, so then the question is which is fake news? (I may posted below before?)


    "Chaos theory applies neatly to the spread of the coronavirus, in that seemingly tiny decisions or differences in reaction speed can have inordinate consequences. Effects can seem random when, in fact, they trace to discrete decisions made long prior. For example, the United States has surpassed 125,000 deaths from COVID-19. Having suppressed the virus early, South Korea has had only 289. Vietnam’s toll sits at zero. Even when differences from place to place appear random, or too dramatic to pin entirely on a failed national response, they are not."

    Do you think this may help explain Trump's denial of reality, his election loss? Hard to say really as he seemed kinda insecure and inept even before Covid. What are your thoughts.
