That's what really gets me about this administration. Set aside the prioritizing of profit over human life part, but the business genius and his team have no understanding of how tightly the US economy is tied to China's. For all of the "wins", there would also be a ton of US companies feeling the pain of disruptions in their Chinese supply chains. Not to mention US companies losing sales in China. They were counting the hits but not the misses.

Lord, save us from political anglers before its too late.
I assume you're talking about the president. I have no idea what his conclusions are and no interest in them. I have accepted no conclusions about covid19, nor have I formed any of my own. Moreover I am wholly unconcerned with any and all political figures, parties, and policies. I've got no time or energy to waste on that kind of nonsense. Some other kinds of nonsense are ok.

The supply chain was mentioned several times with the prevailing wisdom that the virus would show businesses that it was not good to be so heavily invested in China. So the US and Mexico would likely gain more manufacturing jobs. January 2020's news is an interesting wormhole to go down.

For someone who claims to know how business works, he has no idea how business works.

Found on FB today while I was watching these idiots march on the statehouse that will likely get them, or someone in their families, sick eventually.
Seems to be a decent accounting of data, and shows how badly NY did, and how Ohio isn't doing as well as it was:

"As far as I'm concerned, there is exactly one COVID-19 data source worth checking daily. Go here: https://91-divoc.com/pages/covid-visualization/ scroll down, and find the "Cases by US States/Territories, normalized by population". Change the drop down to new cases/day or new deaths/day rolling weekly average, and choose the state you're curious about. As far as I know, this is the easiest way to see data that is both adjusted for the size/population of the state, so Nebraska and New Jersey aren't treated like they're the same thing AND looks at rolling averages so one bad/good day doesn't make everything look better or worse than it is."

His health system was inadequately prepared. De Blasio did an even worst job. He's blaming everyone else but fought everyone of his advisors about shutting things down until the very end. NY state has double the per capita death rate of italy (which a few weeks ago was the center of the apocalypse). It's absolutely shameful. Honestly I don't know how anyone could possibly think anything positive about either or ever vote for them again.

The whole thing is shameful. People in power knew this was coming. Simply being honest with their citizens about the seriousness of the threat, and explaining the few simple steps that everyone can easily do, would greatly have mitigated this disaster.

Sorry to disagree, Cuomo may have been slow in his response in retrospect, but he was always following the advice of the CDC. And shuttering down the largest city in the country isn't quite so easy. But let's move past that - this pandemic is certainly far from over and he's extended the Shelter in Place until mid May (at this point). Where as our Great Leader is supportive of the covidiots protesting the bans. Which one of them is showing true leadership?
