Sorry, I fat fingered the fatalities number. It should read 90,201 currently not -237.

It will not take until June 1 to hit 100,000 at our current rate.

Millions by 2021? I hope not. The US is so bad at anything that requires societal discipline, except of course, stupid wars,
and even then we just ignore them while a small cadre of pros does all our killing for us.
We are a sad sack of a society. It's too bad.

According to the actual stats, if we kept the country open and working do you think there would be a difference?

More than 100K businesses have disappeared, more than deaths but that is just businesses, not including suicides, killing, and other mishaps because people are not working but you follow strict party hardline stances of Palosie because everything else doesn't matter.

Sad to say but more than 1.5 million are effected, but most have got over it, and the stats will prove that out, but that isn't politics, but DNC need to make this last as long as they can to have a chance in presidential election.

What next, another 3 years or more to try and impeach trump? Yep, it is already beginning.

And why would they do that? To aid Trump's reelection chances. Period.

Self-serving doesn't come worse than what Trump's already done and continues to do with his calls to reopen everything before we can test and do contact tracing, as our nation's health experts recommend.

"Fact check: Hospitals get paid more if patients listed as COVID-19, on ventilators"

Any number given is tragic and that's something I'd hope was bipartisan but the fact is that this number is inflated. That's not me, nor fox or Alex

Jones. That's fact check and people who are there and witnessing this Orwellian version of the "truth" in the numbers.

'if they're Medicare " typically, the diagnosis-related group lump sum payment would be $5,000. But if it's COVID-19 pneumonia, then it's $13,000, and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000."

"on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000"...and let's see...who was screaming for more ventilators...oh yeah....the Governor of New York.

He noted that some states, including his home state of Minnesota, as well as California, list only laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 diagnoses. Others, specifically New York, list all presumed cases, which is allowed under guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as of mid-April and which will result in a larger payout.

Jensen said he thinks the overall number of COVID-19 cases have been undercounted based on limitations in the number of tests available.

"Originally deployed to care for patients without coronavirus, the Comfort switched gears and started accepting them as the city's hospitals became overrun with people suffering from the disease."

Yes, originally Trump had said no Covid patients on the Comfort and that is why it stood empty for a while, until Cuomo convinced him to say it could take Covid patients.

Are you reading the articles you are linking to?:

With an increase in the severity of cases treated comes the need for more equipment and staffing. And at the moment, it remains to be seen whether either the Javits Center or the Comfort can adequately care for very many of the most seriously ill covid-19 patients, as state and federal officials have indicated is their new mission.

Between the two, there are 1,200 beds available, military officials said " far fewer than the 3,000 described in public statements by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) or the 5,000 touted in initial media announcements. As of Friday, about 250 beds were occupied, officials said.

Military officials said they are continually revising their admissions criteria as they've had to transform the facilities into ICU-capable covid-19 field hospitals, instead of medical wards to treat noncritical, non-covid patients as New York state initially requested. The slow start, one defense official said, is owed in part to the military being unfamiliar with the local hospitals and the hospitals' unfamiliarity with the military medical system.

Dario Gonzalez, a top medical official for the city's emergency management agency and the fire department, who is an on-site consultant at Javits, said the effort has faced multiple hurdles. Intensive care capability was limited to "just a couple" of ventilators, he said. X-ray machines and lab stations " equipment from the federal stockpile, which was also servicing growing crisis zones in Chicago and Detroit " have been slow to arrive.

"I know people are frustrated, and I know people are upset. Everybody wants it to be faster, but we want it to be safe," he said. "But I need the resources, the staff, the equipment. This was not set up as a mobile ICU."

Everything was upended last week, after an uproar from hospital executives who questioned why these federal facilities were sitting nearly empty when the city's doctors and nurses were overwhelmed. At first, Javits began accepting covid-19 patients transferred from hospitals, but only those convalescing, which "means they are in the recovery period and less likely to deteriorate and require major medical care," a military official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of sensitivities over the matter, said via email. "We had no safety outlet if the patient deteriorated (i.e. no ventilators, no ICU beds, etc.)."

The situation has since improved, the email indicated, and the Javits Center now has some ability to accept more patients "at different points in their clinical progression." Military officials said "there are currently hundreds of ventilators on hand" there.

It is unclear, however, whether there is a sufficient supply of oxygen. The military official said "a few" beds are set up for oxygen. Gonzalez, with the city's emergency management agency, said they're working on a system for piping oxygen into the building but don't have one yet for needs he characterized as "tremendous."

"We are doing everything we can to put the right patients in the right places, fully knowing that the volume of patients and complexity of the disease process makes that difficult at times," the military official said. While freeing up hospital beds for the sickest covid-19 patients is the goal, his email noted, "we have recommended to our local hospital partners that if they are planning to discharge the patient in 1-2 days, that a trip to Javits may be more of a burden than a help."

Comfort arrives March 30th, doesn't take Covid patients until April 7th, only has 500 bed capacity at that point, with 100 ICU beds with ventilators:

The Comfort arrived at Pier 90, on Manhattan's West Side, on March 30 as many New York hospitals were morphing into coronavirus centers. Only a few dozen patients, none with covid-19, were treated aboard the ship during its first week in the city.

The ship began accepting covid patients Tuesday [April 7]. Its 1,000-bed capacity has been reduced to 500 to account for the higher care needs. There are 100 ICU beds with ventilators plus operating rooms for treating higher-risk patients, officials said.


I'm not saying Comfort couldn't have been better utilized, but logistically, it was never going to solve the problem of all the elderly people who got Covid, in and out of nursing homes in NY state.

My brother is pissed at me for the same reason. He's recently back to work as a residential electrician and is frustrated that clients are putting off his visits to do estimates or to bring crews in to get the work done. He's more worried about the guys that might kill themselves due to being unable to pay their bills than he is those who die from the virus or those who die because hospitals are overrun because we opened too soon. He's on Long Island where they've been hard hit and his sister in law is an infectious disease expert so there really is no excuse for him thinking like that but his friends are a bunch of tough guy morons so he's got to keep up appearances I suppose.

What you left out:

Nursing homes could only take COVID-19 patients IF they could quarantine them.
Nursing homes could refuse to take COVID-19 patients IF they could not care for them safely.
Patients were only released when they were either recovering or recovered.
Nursing Home deaths in New York account for the same percentage of overall COVID-19 deaths as in other states like Florida.

This is why there is no current link between these discharged patients and nursing home COVID-19 deaths.

"citizens exercising their first amendment rights."

Nah.
Citizens have the right to peaceably assemble.
When they bring guns, that's not a peaceable assembly.

I'd like to know how many here that are lecturing about people wanting to feed their kids and work for their money instead of staying on the dole even

through all this.

If one single time, you ordered food delivered or something from amazon, I am not interested in a single word from you now lecturing about states that

are coming open or those "nazis protesting".

" wrong on virtually ever point."

On the contrary, what he said was accurate.

Now your claim about the 5000...could your methodology be more bogus??? You're pretending almost ALL the deaths were directly as a result of Cuomo's choices, which couldn't be further from the truth.

OMG!

Trump said today he's been taking hydroxychloriquine for 2 weeks as a 'preventative.'

This despite health experts warning that it isn't effective against COVID-19 and can cause serious heart and other organ damage.

Trump's probably lying, but if he isn't (this time) it's because he ordered the U.S. to buy 29,000,000 doses and caught a lot of heat for touting its efficacy in direct opposition to statements by health officials.

BTW, Trump's purchase of 29,000,000 doses of a drug that isn't effective against COVID-19 has resulted in a shortage of it for people with autoimmune diseases like lupus

90,000 dead and Trumpublicans are in full military gear in order to go buy sandwiches from subway. Because they believe they've lost their freedom. So they need to walk around carrying 17 guns.

And a fake rocket launcher. Which means they're SUPER serious about those sandwiches.

Actually it just means they're the idiots we've always known them to be.

You know what I hate about conservatives.
How little they care about anyone other than themselves.

That used to be it for me too.

But it's been supplanted by their victim complex. Self-absorbed, garbage piles of humanity constantly whining about how life is so unfair for them because [insert conspiracy theory here].

It's nauseating.

UBI anyone?

Forcing people back into work environment merely exacerbates the situation and extends the length of a lockdown longer-term.

At least a base income during this would ensure Americans can live indoors and possibly even eat food.

90,000 deaths = TRump and his administration's incompetence.

In Arizona they do it differently. Shh! Don't tell anybody!:

Arizona: Revealing nursing homes with COVID-19 outbreaks would hurt businesses

The Arizona Department of Health Services made a new argument Friday to justify denying the public access to information about coronavirus cases inside nursing homes: Naming facilities with outbreaks would hurt business.

Do we need any clearer indication that the GOP views the average American as a serf to serve them and nothing more?

Their concern has begun and ended with businesses. Period.

something is wrong with these figures

US has 1,509,202 cases this morning with a population of 331M

that matches the next 7 counties @ 1,549,878 cases with a total population of 685M

Russia
Brazil
UK
Spain
Italy
France
Germany

What's wrong with the figures?

You're assuming that responses and time since infection start are all the same.

That judgment is clearly outside their purview and mandate.

But you can get it to shut up by asking questions it's too cowardly to answer.

By GOP standards, there should be 92,000 investigations about to start up, right?
I write this, because when four Americans were killed by terrorists in Benghazi, there were no less than four long congressional investigations, any tangential issues related and unrelated were looked into, and Clinton was compelled to appear.
....
The same should apply here to Trump and Pompeo, right?

Why is New York's death tolls 50x higher than Texas'?

#84 | Posted by WhiteDevil at 2020-05-20 08:57 AM | Reply

#84 Density of population. Less densely populated parts of NY state have a small number of CV cases (relative to NYC and the surrounding counties), which probably compare favorably to parts of TX in terms of infections:

So areas with lower population density shouldn't be required to lockdown in the same way New York has.

Dallas and Houston and Miami and Tampa have lots of population density, and a lot of old people. Seems like they're much better off there than in Cuomo's and DeLasio's New York
