Looking at the infection rate is a waste of time. America has 331 million people. If we tested 100,000 people a day it would literally take over 9 years to test everyone.

 

A far better metric is the death toll as its fairly easy to both identify and count a dead body.

 

That said, we're further behind and its a huge country with many population dense cities. There's little doubt that we'll be the largest curve, especially when its unlikely the data China provided is accurate.

 

Not trying to downplay it, but those are facts. Its logistically impossible to mobilize testing at the scale necessary in the USA and unsure why it matters since the treatment remains the same when someone is in critical respiratory distress. That and just cause someone tests negative doesn't mean they remain that way. I can see testing hospital staff and first responders and similar, but testing people seems like a waste of time and energy that can instead go into efforts that have real effect.

my two cents™

I’ve been trying to keep more to myself the past few days in my real world life because it seems like no one cares to hear it or think about it, but i think the issues with testing are pretty important to think about.. I think it’s largely a waste of time. I honestly feel like there’s a percentage of people out there who want to be tested just so they can talk about it. There’s also a decent percentage of people being tested that are wasting the hospitals time and resources, and frankly the hospitals cannot handle it, as we’re seeing.. 
 

That point about testing 100,000 a day is something i hadn’t thought of, and a point i think is also important to make. I think we’re largely wasting our time with this attempt at quarantining and testing. We will need to shut down for months to attempt to properly quarantine and i don’t see how that’s going to happen and not have collapse and chaos. 
 

I was talking with a coworker earlier who didn’t understand the current measures being taken either. The more i thought about it the more i was having trouble shaking the idea that in situations like this, society demands an answer, and they have no answers, so they do the only think they think they can do to attempt to minimize loss of life, because they’re not allowed to come out and just say “Listen. We don’t know what the fuck to do. Some of us are gonna die.” It seems it’d be easier to “rip the bandaid off” so to speak, and quarantine the more susceptible than the entire country. It seems like the lid is already off and been thrown to the wind. 
 

But, what the fuck do i know. I don’t work for the CDC. I’m just another idiot rambling online about shit. 
 

Clearly these people don’t give a fuck..

I am on board with attempting to minimize the loss of life.

This very much parallels my position on gun control. It’s low hanging fruit for politicians. Rather than really dig down and attempt to fix the problem, the delegate the task to other people and mobilize measures that they can point to like they’re doing all they can. Doesn’t take rocket science to analyze the data and do the math to recognize it’s generally hardly scratching the surface at best, if not just straight up a giant dog and pony show.

Keep your eyes open for the power grab. You heard it here first but same as 9/11... Let no crisis go to waste. Expect sweeping legislation over the next year or two (likely after the election cycle) that will encroach on American freedoms in ways not seen since the "Patriot" and "Freedom" act. It'll be named just and disingenuously and therefore very easy to spot and just like those two pieces of legislation, actually be stuffed with shit that is precisely the opposite of it.

 

Again, wait and watch.

Said it starting quite a ways back... Watch for the power grab. 
 

@Kultssent me this regarding Canada. Granted in Canada, you’re simply a “subject” of the “crown”, but profoundly fucked up none the less.
 

More is coming. Watch for it.

President is itching to "starting the country" back up so he is having his scientists research whether it is ok to send the young and the strong back to work to get the economy up and going again.

Superseding the states' decisions on staying at home is, I guess, a mild power move.

I am getting bored at home. But the risk he's taking with sending us all back out? I don't know anymore. The news seems to be only interested in what Cuomo and New York has to say.
