    Brazil had almost as many New Cases yesterday as the USA.

    Brazil has 2/3 the population of the USA.

    Brazil has very little testing.

    Brazil's leader is possibly even further right than DT, and also refuses to wear a mask.

    Yet to hear the cultists on JPP tell us, only the blue states are overwhelmed with cases.

    According to Worldometer, Brazil's testing level is very poor. If they were testing as many ppl as we are, their infection rate likely would surpass ours.

    Those countries also have a lot more people than most countries, though.

    Everything depends on how you count, and the different countries don't use the same methods. Belgium, for instance, counts everyone who might have the lurgy, whereas the UK, until recently, counted only the cases in hospital. I think that reactionary governments inevitably produce more deaths, because they care more for profits than people, but they also fix the figures as far as they can

    false construct.
    Russia is unfortunate to have China on it's Siberian border -how the virus came in

    Brazil's leadership actually will not wear a mask of use social distancing -or do a shut down
    They are stupid and brought this upon themselves

    The US was a victim of the Wu-flu -but we've done mitigation

    it's not the testing, it's their lack of a mitigation strategy

    It is only logical that when a problem is recognized and steps are taken to deal with it, then better results are had.

    Likewise, the opposite is true.

    If a problem is denied, and nothing is done to deal with it, then the results are disastrous.

    That's what Brazil is rapidly moving towards, and the USA already has.

    A disaster.

    That can be reduced to a mathematical equation.

    [Terrible leadership] + [a Bad Problem which requires good leadership] = [a Disaster]

    Trump does a very good job
    “If we could hold that down, as we’re saying, to 100,000, that’s a horrible number, maybe even less, but to 100,000 — so we have between 100- and 200,000 deaths — we altogether have done a very good job.”

    As of this week, he did it!

    The testing merely shows how many active cases there are, that's true. Brazil's actual numbers are far higher than what is being reported. Ours, less so.

    Neither Brazil nor the U.S. had any cohesive, national-level mitigation plans. #COVID45 pretty much left it up to the states which is why we have the piecemeal mess and 100,000 dead that we have.
