Is it really within reason to think he could test in the morning and show symptoms that evening and leave the hospital the following Monday?
But he was dosed up on steroids and who knows what else, .....possibly amphetamines!I checked. He tested positive on Friday, Oc.t 2 and went back to the white house on Wednesday,, Oct. 7. I suppose he went for a test because he had some symptoms.
It is a short time, but not unheard of.
If we had a treatment, whatever treatment it would be, that would be able to cure covid-19 in 5 days for everyone, that would be in the news.Not exactly standard treatment:rushed to the hospital by helicopter, served by 14 expert physicians, got experimental drugs unavailable to others with the same state of disease
Donald Trump was present at a campaign rally in Florida on Oct, 12. Which makes it 10 days.First, it's not a fact that Trump was really cured in 5 days. It seems to me that they could well pretend that the president is healthy and at work.
I certainly know how I have acted upon the news of this pandemic, sometimes in February. I suppose you meant "how we would have acted were we in charge of a large country". And the point is: if one chooses that kind of responsibility, one is supposed to be able to react appropriately in such times.Secondly, we do not know how each of us would have acted upon the news of a pandemic.
It’s real! I’d take it.So, Asher, is this new vaccine from Pfizer the real deal or are more trials needed?
Tim,With all due respect, 200,000 more dead by year end averages out to 3,846 deaths each day from now until January 1st. Don't you think that's a bit pessimistic? I'm not buying it.
Whether it's mainly down to improved treatment or just the fact the most vulnerable have already gone the death rate in advanced countries does seem to be very much lower in the second wave. Known cases is certainly going through the roof but there's reason to hope the death rate won't be as bad. Of course optimism is no excuse for ignoring simple hygiene based advice like masks/social distancing.Just look the latest graphs of new infections, it’s like a fighter jet doing a multi-g vertical climb!
Chris,What are your opinions on tRump's newest "expert" doctor, Adams?
I have spent a lot of time reading the Sunday sermons of one of our members. He calls out and condemns my voting for Biden, (which I didn’t as I have my wife vote for me so as not to cancel out whatever she chooses) and holds me responsible for murdering millions of human beings aborted by folk Biden & Harris support!Those were my feeling exactly...and yet 72M idiots voted for the clown in chief.
Not quite conflation, Jérôme:You seem to conflate the problem with religion.
You basically fear a coup in the US. Donald Trump is not able to start a coup, because he does not have the support from the US army. Not that he could not try, that I don't know. But he is unlikely to succeed without the support of the military, which goes to Biden.Me, I fear Biden will be assassinated either before or shortly after taking office and so will Harris and Pelosi...
Another thing I notice as is with my wife's family, staunch Republicans, is that they will balk at any mention of universal healthcare, but readily accept Medicaid for their mentally challenged granddaughter and will go to the ER for the slightest sniffle or couch and avail themselves of Medicare covering all the costs...a strange dichotomy to people who also believe that only God can determine who will live or die..
