    hahhahahahaha---why the insults??!! why can't you be civil?? why are you upset?
    ok, OK, for arguments sake/etc, lets say it's FIFTY per year.... MORE than your 39....
    ..let me put it in clear perspective that even you might understand:
    ...there are over 15 THOUSAND murders per year......get it now??!!!
    ...and, group B people commit around [ more than ] 25% of those murders--on their own group! and then you and they complain about 39 murders.....!!!???..let's '''say'' group B is only 13% of the population
    and the police shoot about 300 [ mostly armed and dangerous jacka$$es ] of group B people--
    ...it is clear, undeniable the ''39''' is undeniably minuscule. =as I pointed out before
    AND--they [ the MSM also--and you obviously believe the MSM lies/etc ] concentrate on minuscule/non-critical/unimportant stuff like this, and what happens?? group B has many problems at much more, significantly higher rates than other groups ..they can't fix the problem, when they concentrate on imagined/fake/etc problems
    15,000 vs 50 or 39 or 3.85 and/or 3000 vs 50, 39 or 3.85 = less than minuscule
    caps for emphasis only

    Allow me to offer a couple of examples as well, South Korea and Jordan. Both countries aggressively tested, aggressively used contact tracing and aggressively used social distancing. The result? Less than 300 dead for South Korea and less than 10 for Jordan as of this morning. We by contrast have 72-73,000 dead and will likely see 100-125,000 lost by the end of this month

    In 2019 Jordan had a estimated population of 10.4 million, and the 2015 census counted 9.5 million.

    Isis is using the Corona infection to its advantage and fighting in Syria and Iraq. We are back in shitty business.

    How could a third world country like Jordan "aggressively test?" Do you think they developed their own tests? They sure didn't buy them on the world market.
    Most of the "confirmed cases" nonsense is just that, nonsense. AGAIN, the antibody tests prove conclusively that only a tiny fraction of those infected will seek medical care and thus get the test. Reliable testing is only available in developed countries, so I wouldn't trust "data" from most of the world and the "confirmed cases" data is nonsensical on its face.
    I watched an epidemiologist on TV yesterday who says they have proved we have two strains. The strain that came out of Europe (our east coast) is worse than the original strain that came out of Wuhan that we see on our west coast. Even so, both strains have only a fraction of 1% mortality rate. The best guess so far is about .04%. Note that's point ZERO four, not point four (.4)%

    Interesting. Gubernator Cuomo is shocked, SHOCKED that 66% of his positive cases are from those that followed his stay-at-home orders to the letter. Another 22% are those from Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Homes targeted by his executive order forcing them to accept infectious patients.

    Makes sense to anyone who has spent decades living in NYC. This is one tough enemy. it can be contracted by surface contact, human to human contact and now it has an Airborne Division. THose who don't know history are destined to repeat it. Are there any war historians that can tell me when went into a war that we did not underestimate the enemy strength and expected duration of the war at the beginning?

    Sooooooo, lets see if we can get on the same page here.

    It is perfectly OK to compare Sweden (pop. 10 million) to the US (pop. 325-330 million), but to compare Sweden (pop. 10.3 million) to Jordan (pop 9.5 to 10.4 million) is a no-no.

    Gee, this new math is so confusing!

    So through the stay at home, my son has worked his business by meeting with new prospects and current customers in a county where 7000 are infected and 500 have died. He believes the virus could be a hoax and that 200,000 dying to keep the economy is worth it. He thinks the 70 y o grand parents should hug his kids because "They haven't been exposed." This years Mothers Day might be interesting if he shows up.

    Have to be understanding of the situation. Different folks, different understanding. Some wise, some not. My son works from home also. He is a tax director for an international company, which, among other holdings, owns grocery store chains, yes grocery stores that cannot even keep the shelves stocked. He is mainly involved with the grocery stores. The chains in the northeast. He takes a different view on this pandemic. His wife is a doctor and on the board at the hospital. Enough said.

    Sympathy. Fathers against sons. Sons against fathers. Thankfully I have a daughter who is the sweetest person anyone could know. Batted .500 as a parent.

    Jordan has only 9 fatalities reported so the must be doing something right. And I seem to recall a third world country forcing a first world country to tuck its tail between its legs and go home, can't quite put my finger on who it was but it does indicate a 3rd world country can occasionally show up a 1st world country. What about South Korea (300 fatalities)? Did they become a 3rd world country when I wasn't looking?

    I know lets look at Sweden's nearest neighbors.
    Sweden 2, 941 dead

    Finland 252 dead
    Norway 216 dead
    Estonia 55 dead
    Lithuania 48 Dead
    Latvia 17 dead
    Belarus 116 dead
    Poland 733 dead
    Denmark 506 dead

    One of these is not like the others.

    Careful now, your bias is showing.

    50% of Sweden's deaths are in nursing homes& assisted living homes. Yet, you have only giving them glowing reviews...

    Where is your vitriol for Sweden?

    22% = Crucify Cuomo
    50% = Sweden is doing a great job.

    Your making less sense than usual.
