Hopefully this breaks the dam

SICK of RW comparisons of H1N1 (Swine flu) to Covid-19?? Here's a rebuttal!

H1N1 took over three MONTHS to reach similar levels of cases and deaths weíre seeing now for Covid-19 in just three WEEKS!

From April 15, 2009 to July 24, 2009, states reported a total of 43,771 confirmed and probable cases of novel influenza A (H1N1) infection. Of these cases reported, 5,011 people were hospitalized and 302 people died.

United States

Coronavirus Cases: 26,959
Deaths: 349
Recovered: 178

ADDITIONALLY, Obama declared a Public Health Emergency on April 26, 2009 1-2 days *before* the *first* fatality had even occurred.

On April 26, 2009, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the "Secretary" first declared a public health emergency under section 319 of the Public Health Service Act,42 U.S.C. 247d, in response to the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus. The Secretary has renewed that declaration twice, on July 24,2009, and October 1, 2009

Fatality info (under Initial Cases)

By comparison, the first US death from Covid-19 was Feb 28, 2020

pResident tRump didnít declare a National Emergency until March 13, 2020

H1N1 was estimated to have infected 60.8 Million Americans and killed ~12,000 over its entire span and had a low mortality rate of 0.02%, 75% lower than normal influenza strains
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, there were 60.8 million cases, 274,000 hospitalizations, and 12,469 deaths (0.02% case fatality rate) in the United States due to the virus.

Covid-19 currently has a mortality rate (deaths / number of cases - itís much worse looking at deaths per recovered - but comparing apples to apples for now) of 1.29% (65 times WORSE than H1N1)!

EXTRAPOLATING Covid-19 rate over H1N1 number of total infected would result in 785,000 deaths in the US alone, minimally. That would likely be MUCH higher due to hospitals being overwhelmed and patient care being rationed or ignored, leaving untolled numbers of additional deaths.

If only!!


Maybe we'll catch a break and the vaccine for COVID-19 will also cure Dunning-Kruger Syndrome.

WEINSTEIN Positive now. Rikers Island - 42 Staff and Inmates Positive for Covid-19

42 total staff & inmates on Rikers island are positive. This situation is spiraling

BREAKING: 21 people incarcerated at Rikers Island have tested positive for #COVID19 ó as well as a similar number of staff. Population in infectious disease unit has doubled from 28 to 56 in past 4 days. @NYCMayor response is totally insufficient to full blown crisis.

Gonna get real ugly in there. And who knows how bad other prisons are.

trump admin plans on propaganda blitz blaming CHY-NUH

The White House is launching a communications plan across multiple federal agencies that focuses on accusing Beijing of orchestrating a "cover-up" and creating a global pandemic, according to two U.S. officials and a cable obtained by The Daily Beast.

All that effort to do bullshit instead of helping people and #MAGA #Cult45 will suck it up

Latest Twitter trend: #Covidiot. Love it!!


I made it a point to try and avoid local FB groups today because there are too many #Covidiots in there who think they can continue life as normal. Itís no big deal. Itís unconstitutional. Itís illegal. Itís just the flu

I just canít anymore

The human race is doomed

Video: trump says if you lost your job, keep your paycheck. Oh. And keep your job!


Sarah Reese Jones

Trump tells people who just lost their jobs to keep getting their paychecks.

We all know heís a blithering idiot with NO connection to reality anymore but Jesus H Christ on a popsicle stick!!!

And he says no need to invoke Defense Protection Act. Masks are being made (and he refers to a volunteer effort from some designer or something, I believe)

Stark difference bewteen Democratic & Republican response at a state level

Matt Jones

Look at the difference between how the Kentucky Governor and Tennessee Governor handled the Coronavirus

And look at the results of those policies

Ky Governor Beshear took more protective steps than did TN

Without mortgage / rent suspension, we risk an onslaught of foreclosures

There will be so many people unable to pay their mortgage which will snowball their problems

And landlords will suffer on that side as renters will be unable to pay rent

Foreclosures will start picking up or people will start selling houses below market to try and save themselves

Housing prices will take a hit which will put more people underwater and then....


If only we have leadership of any type in the White House

At least FIVE states have issued "Stay at Home". Soon to be 6

Coronavirus updates: States order most residents to stay at home
More than one-fourth of Americans are being ordered to stay home as much as possible in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus. The governors of New York, Illinois and Connecticut on Friday joined California and Pennsylvania in shutting down most businesses. Workers considered "essential" are exempt, meaning grocery stores, pharmacies and take-out restaurants will stay open in those states.

There are more than 19,300 cases in the U.S., and at least 250 people have died, according to John Hopkins University.

Oregon working on it


ALL have Democratic governors if Iím not mistaken
