Two big caveats regarding global testing data:
1) Testing standards vary by country
2) Not every country is providing full results (China)
I understand it is hard for some of the more autistic members of the OG to comprehend why just regurgitating global data without scrutiny is a problem, but it is something Fauci and Birx have both talked about as well, in addition to reporters from WaPo, CNN, NYT, Fox News, etc.
There are some particularly queer Americans who want to root against the country's collective health because they think it will hurt Trump (which is demented), but again, the actual data is not as absolute as your smooth, smooth brain wishes it was.
Even if we assume China is lying, we've passed Italy, which is still indicative of a pandemic.
Do we have to double China's reported numbers? Triple? Which multiplier do you need before you're convinced it's truely a pandemic?
New York 100 deaths in one day. What number do you want it to be then? 1000? 10,000?
Even if we assume China is lying, your logic leads to a dead end. There's no point there.
Of course we passed Italy. The US has over 5x the population if Italy.
Far less density though. Plus, we're the richest country in the world and we had Italy's mistakes to learn from. If you told anyone on this board a week or two ago we'd lead the world in Coronavirus infections, they'd never believe you.
Far less density in most of the country. There's obviously a reason NYC makes up a pretty large percentage of the current cases.
Yep. So the idea is not to let the NYCs of our country become the next Italy. But it's looking like that might already be too late due to idiot in chief.
