jcblass - You do realize the increase in cases is largely because they rolled out rapid testing units so they can get through samples much quicker. Additionally, if you are in good health and under 78 years old, this virus, although very contagious, is pretty mild. Most people with a strong immune system can handle it very easily, with some carrying the virus but showing zero symptoms. So the number of cases or how fast they are growing is almost meaningless, especially with the draconian social distancing we have going on in the larger cities.

LOL @ this fool.

Just read an article about diblasio. Hes a fucking turd.

 

Blamed Trump about "activate military now". Shouldn't diblasio ask Cuomo to activate the guard first? That's how it works. Fucking TURD HE IS.

 

And a great move on his part to piss off every single cop before a national crisis.

He has been the absolute worst Mayor in the history of NYC. Ever.

I defy one OG'er to prove me wrong. 

Stinkens gives him a run for his socialist money.

^ This

The spike in cases is a GOOD thing. It means the testing is finally reaching effective levels. The same thing happened in China and South Korea before they got the bug somewhat under control. That was the point where they ceased flailing around in the dark and started using good data to direct their efforts.

What's the opinion on Cuomo?  Only seen him from stuff during this virus but he seems cool

the Cuomos and the Trumps have known each other for decades now , in NYC

Gov cuomo's father, Mario, was also a former gov of NY and one of the key figurheads of NY Democrats

 

as bad as current Gov Cuomo can/has be/been.and as much as i disagree with his politics....I dont place him in the scumbag category as I do with Deblasio...not at all....deblasio is the lowest of the low

Tough to pick between these 2 aholes. Deblasio is the most incompetent, he can't even figure out how to do snow removal. Even Cuomo complains about how bad he is and their both dems. Dinkins gets the prize though for letting a guy get killed while he allowed blacks to riot and did nothing. Also for being a school principal and 'forgetting' to file taxes for three years.

Cuomo and DeBlasio are the perfect illustration of the differences between a liberal and a leftist. Cuomo has a lot of liberal policies I don't like, but he's rational, believes in market-based capitalism, and is willing to work across the aisle when the situation is dire enough. DeBlasio is a full-blown leftist, despises capitalism, and would rather watch the world burn than deviate one millimeter from his precious dialectic.

his daughter is a typical NYU SJW, lesbian

he made sure for his son to grow out his afro during his run for mayor, and it helped A LOT

perfectly said

the Cuomos are institutions of NY democrats

the fact that cuomo and deblasio have always butted heads, is very telling of the rift within the "liberals/dems"

 

Cuomo has ideas i dont agree with at all..but he is pretty sensible and straightforward

deblasio is a race baiter, trouble maker, essentially a socialist type who wants to "make NYC the FAIREST city in the world"

Stop with the fake news bullshit please. The whole "It's the old who need to worry, young healthy people are fine!" myth was busted this week. Badly.

The majority of people in the ICUs in Italy are under 50.

Lots of them will die.

A 30 year old just died in queens.

Just stop.

PS: Data from the good old USA

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/18/health/coronavirus-young-people.html

40 percent of hospitalized patients are between 20 and 54.

Turns out, surprise surprise, the numbers coming out of China were total bullshit.

Understood but again, what’s that say about the people that voted in this woke representative?

Earlier it was reported that Italy's average age of the dead do to Carona was 80 years old. Hard to argue that the old/sick aren't hit much worse than the young/healthy.

The old are definitely hit harder.

But the young are hit hard too.

LOL @ this fool.

 

You should probably read this...


I have read dozens of article just like this. They never say if the young people being admitted had any underlying conditions. Medically speaking, these young people are shadows, no data to crunch. Instead, it is being left up to the clueless public to fill in the gaps with their imaginations.

Form the article:

"The report included no information about whether patients of any age had underlying risk factors, such as a chronic illness or a compromised immune system. So, it is impossible to determine whether the younger patients who were hospitalized were more susceptible to serious infection than most others in their age group."

For all we know, the sudden spike in young people could be from a homeless encampment made up of addicts with poor lung health that made their way into the ER.

"But of the 508 patients known to have been hospitalized, 38 percent were notably younger"

That's 190 people...That small number could easily be young people with genuine underlying illnesses needing a hospital bed early, that gives no indication if that will filter out consistently throughout the crisis. Its probably compromised people who needed it, and then it will fall off because healthy immune systems do fine with this virus.

So you agree that we don't know the history of all the patients, yet you also confirm via your quotes that a good portion are younger people... yet you assume all the young and healthy people will be just fine and keep defending that.

So what is YOUR source?

The only thing I see supporting that healthy young adults are just fine is that the pro athletes are doing ok. Is that all you got? If not, I'd rather see the general public assume the worst and take precautions then assume the best and be wrong later.
