I know the comparison to the Spanish flu is getting tiresome, but I still believe it to be apt.

If the patterns do align even partially, we can expect a second wave (in the least) this fall. Which is why today's discussion between Trump and Cuomo (indirect discussion that is) was so frustrating. Trump accuses Cuomo of lying about needing 40,000 ventalators. Even if Cuomo does not need all 40,000 immediately, he more than likely will need all of them and more in the fall, again, should this situation follow the timeline even remotely to that of the Spanish flu.

Initially, about a million people died during spring of the initial Spanish flu outbreak. Cases and deaths subsided significantly in the summer, but than experienced a massive resurgence in the fall, killing ten times that of the spring.

I'm not suggesting this current situation will mirror the Spanish flu, but even if the parallels are minimally significant, Cuomo's request for 40,000 ventilators now should not be politicized as Trump has done today.

Trump needs to GO NOW. impeach again and again until a good result is obtained.

"Trump accuses Cuomo of lying about needing 40,000 ventalators. "

Like Trumpy knows anything about anything. I can only imagine how frustrating this must be for Gov Cuomo.

Trying to explain reality to a Stable Genius has got to be hard werk.

Even if we bend the curve, without a vaccine, the area under the curve is roughly the same.

It's about the peak of the curve not the area under it. Everyone who's been paying attention to the scientists instead of the con man knows that. Higher peak means hospitals are overwhelmed and more people die.
