Just as the United States greets the arrival of promising vaccines — and prepares to celebrate a starkly transformed holiday season — more Covid-19 deaths are being reported each day than at any time before during the pandemic.
What lessons can we learn from countries that are not experiencing such devastation from this killer virus? Trump says it’s no worse than the flu, but that is a bold faced lie. The Coronavirus has killed many more people than the flu does. Over 213,000 and counting.
The pandemic has forced many businesses to shut down. Many won’t be able to reopen. Make sure your business isn’t one of them. Here are some tips and strategies from America’s leading business turnaround specialist.
These divergent narratives underscore just how far apart Americans overall have become in their interpretation of the pandemic—and the idea that people are increasingly rejecting reality for their own preferred set of facts.
Scientists are hoping that dogs’ keen sense of smell, 10,000 times better than that of humans, can help them identify people carrying COVID-19.
It’s time to wake up and see the death counts.
“Her undeserving death is due to the carelessness of the politicians who continue to hedge their bets on the lives of healthcare workers through a lack of leadership, through a refusal to acknowledge the severity of this crisis, and through an inability and unwillingness to give clear and decisive direction on how to minimize the risks of the coronavirus.”
Trump’s disdain for testing and wearing masks, and his lack of implementing any national response, has creating a staggering human toll.
Trump owns this crisis. This is his legacy. This is what failed leadership looks like.
President Trump continues to generally oppose masks amid a raging pandemic that claimed the lives of at least 134,815 Americans.
Trump is also potentially putting millions of American children at risk by insisting that schools reopen. His delusional view of the virus — mainly that it’s “harmless” — serves his political agenda of getting the economy moving and the country back to “normal” ahead of the fall election.
Orange County has emerged as a hotbed of opposition to mandatory mask rules in public places, and its health director recently resigned after facing intense public criticism and a death threat. Health experts widely say masks are critical in slowing the spread of the virus, however many residents of this county are proudly anti-science and now apparently willing to put their children at great risk.
President Trump has called many things hoaxes over the years — the investigation into his 2016 campaign’s dealings with Russia, his impeachment, global warming — but on Monday he called into question the existence of an epidemic that has killed more than 135,000 Americans.

It seems that Trump did just what he said he would do: He built a wall around America. He just never told Americans that they would be stuck inside.
The weather is finally turning and you’re ready for that cherished summer tradition: spending the day lounging by the outdoor pool or splashing through a water park.
But is the pandemic going to dash your watery summer dreams?
Covid is smart. After Trump has spent months downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic, the disease has found a way to grab the president’s attention: Hit him in his wallet.
They didn’t rehearse their statements: As the president said that he was not taking any federal aid for his properties during the pandemic, his son admitted that they had indeed asked for rent forgiveness.
Major world disasters produce multiple ripple effects. Like a powerful tsunami, they trigger one shock wave after another, each producing injury and mayhem. In the case of Covid-19, the first wave was the global health crisis, still spreading around the world. Next came the stay-at-home requirements and the resulting shutdown of the world economy, resulting in massive job layoffs everywhere. These, in turn, are producing a third wave, possibly even more catastrophic in its outcome: the collapse of global food-supply systems and widespread human starvation.
The president was aware of the danger from the coronavirus – but a lack of leadership has created an emergency of epic proportions.
The repeated warnings didn’t appear to catch the president’s attention. Trump routinely skips reading the intelligence briefs and even ignores the oral summaries he receives from intelligence staff two or three times each week.
The unfortunate thing about the Trump administration, beyond the nepotism, incompetence, mass corruption, idiot kids, white nationalism, wholesale assault on the concept of truth, and pure evil, is that oftentimes it’s beyond parody.
“There are a lot of people stuck in their houses right now. So, what are they going to do? They stream Netflix and get high. Or watch movies on Amazon and get high. Or play board games … and get high. There’s not much else to do.”
But maybe Kemp isn’t the stupidest governor after all. He did, in fact, manage to suppress voting and win the governor’s election by the slimmest of margins.
So if Kemp is not the most stupid, he is the most evil. Take your pick.
With the death toll in this country soaring, Trump is focused on the same thing he is always focused on: himself.
Once coronavirus in the air, it can go pretty darn far. The beach may be shut down, and the signs tell you don’t walk on the beach, don’t swim, don’t surf.. but nobody tells you: Don’t even breathe.
A significant part of Fox News’ coverage had been aimed toward framing the response to coronavirus as unwarranted hysteria. The often-dismissive messaging from Fox News hosts was particularly notable, given that, like other cable news channels, the viewers who make up the network’s audience skew older and are, thus, the most vulnerable to the disease.
Much of America’s suffering is directly attributable to one dreadful fact: that Donald Trump is president of the United States. While people lay dying and bodies are heaped into refrigerated trucks, he brags about his ratings. No where in American history has there been such an out of touch, elitist, arrogant, and completely incapable leader.
Until earlier this week, Donald Trump downplayed the disease’s danger and overstated the extent to which the United States had “control” over it, and Republicans overwhelmingly continue to say that the threat from the virus had been exaggerated.
The coronavirus outbreak is already disrupting international travel and trade. The pandemic could impact the global food supply chain and leave some populations without adequate nutrition.
I’ve had the flu before, it’s not even comparable. It feels like hell.
Infighting, turf wars and a president more concerned with the stock market and media coverage than policy have defined the Trump White House. They have also defined how it has handled a pandemic
We don’t have ventilator services, we don’t have respiratory therapy, there is no intensive care unit.
There is no universal protocol for a “deep clean” of highly trafficked public or commercial spaces to eradicate the coronavirus.
