    The governor did not set policy for the federally operated field hospitals and ships. The ability to "pivot" was someone else's purview.

    Nursing homes are shitholes.

    Do we need to see another horrifying video of elder abuse?

    Let's face it. The elderly were forgotten.
    Look at the numbers...the first major outbreak was in a nursing home.

    I've been in many many nursing homes...I'd rather be housed in a some dive hotel.

    It'd be way safer...

    NBC, CNN etc havent reported on Cuomos failure that resulted in 25% of the deaths in his state. Thats why people on this board have no clue what this is even about, they have their head stuck up the fake news' ass.

    At least Dr. Bitcoin reports on what actually happened, unlike CNN, NBC, etc

    The idea with hotels is that the only old people in there would be the sick ones. There wouldn't be any healthy old people to infect. But who knows whether that would have worked any better.

    What I was referring to was the lack of wall to wall coverage of Cuomos actions.

    Imagine if Trump made a decision like Cuomo did? The media spent a week bashing Trump over one guy drinking pool cleaner, imagine if he did something that directly lead to 1000s dying? The media would have a field day, and the left would be opening impeachment charges against him.

    https://www.tnonline.com/20200519/pa-posts-nursing-home-data-weatherwood-has-58-virus-cases/

    Here’s a list of some Long term nursing homes in the area. I know it doesn’t list all...for example, where I work at my part time job isn’t on there because they are an assisted living facility (actually just got our first positive test which happens to be my best friend who’s 30, she thought she was asymptomatic until today where she said she lost the sense of smell and taste).

    we have been accepting new residents throughout this but as apart of the pre screening, COVID testing was apart of admission lately. We also have been preventing families from entering the facility to contain the spread to our place since early March. Everyone has to get temp checked and fill out a questionnaire before starting to work. The fact that we just have one case is good. My friend got it from someone outside of work, wherever she went she contracted the virus.

    I also know my aunt (She’s 67) works for a nursing home in Easton, PA. She told me they have been taking in covid patients and keeping them on the 2nd floor of her place of work. It’s about the money for them accepting them there, as it helps with census, etc and they are likely getting money from the state to take these patients in.

    There are many other factors that can bring the economy down and for Sweden export companies the problem with international supply chains has effected them greatly. But as far as the virus I think looking at deaths per capita is a better indicator and Sweden is at 383 per million while neighboring Denmark is at 96 per million and Finland is at 55 per million.

    One call to the federal government changed their field hospitals to Covid patients. Cuomo made that call on April 6th and the change was done instantly and the ship was converted. He changed his nursing home policy on May 10th.

    Well, goodbye Rosie, The Queen of Corona, when you're right, you're right: little jeto had The Wuhan Virus. Donating blood on Tuesday.

    SARS-CoV-2 Antibody, IgG

    SARS-CoV-2 Antibody, IgG
    See DiaSorin SARS-CoV-2 Ab, IgG

    Positive

    DiaSorin SARS-CoV-2 Ab, IgG

    Positive

    Results suggest recent or prior infection with SARS-CoV-2. Correlation with epidemiologic risk factors and other clinical and laboratory findings is recommended. Serologic results should not be used as the
    sole basis to diagnose or exclude recent SARS-CoV-2 infection. False positive results infrequently occur due to prior infection with other human Coronaviruses. This assay was performed using the DiaSorin Liaison(R) SARS-CoV-2 S1/S2 IgG assay.

    I mean I understand what you're saying and it was a hell of a difficult call to make.

    But you can't really argue 'hard to make that call in real time' for one and not the other. You can say the same things about certain Trump decisions.

    I understand that Florida and New York obviously have much different topography, city layouts, etc. But Florida has a bigger population, older median age (by 3.2 years) and Miami airport is ranked third in the country in international travel (# of flights). Their elderly population also outpaces New York, although not by a huge number.

    https://www.prb.org/which-us-states...by-percent-of-population-age-65-or-older-2018

    With that being said, I'm not a huge fan of De Santis. He reminds me of a car salesman that will sell you a 2019 Mustang with a 1996 Toyota Camry engine in it. It's fair to say he's done a much better job, even if he did have *some* extra time. There has to be a reason why Florida's number are 10x lower. We're not talking 10k deaths in New York.

    Cuomo did a poor job compared to Desantis, from locking down to the reopening process.

    Desantis pointed this out to, his state saw the highest flow of people from the Coronavirus epicenter......NY. NYers went to Florida, and NY was basically Wuhan 2.0.
