    The problem is that countries need to be compared at similar times in the outbreak. Once again, the point you wish to make is better made with the Divoc site.

      Give me a break. You’re trying to draw me into argument that you and I know is going nowhere from this point. You presented your “logic,” a Johns Hopkins dress rehearsal released four months before the first Covid-19 case surfaced in the US. Like it really matters our hypothetical capacity to deal with a pandemic versus what we actually did and didn’t do in the weeks immediately preceding and after the virus arrived.

      The current numbers as shown by my graph fly in the face of the October study, ironically BOTH from Johns Hopkins. We didn’t move quickly enough on a number of fronts. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it. Government red tape bogged down the response. Supplies were miscalculated. NYC became a cesspool. We had thousands of kids left to play on the beach in Florida oblivious to the goings on. The governor of Georgia admitted during the past week of his just now being aware that asymptomatic people could transmit the virus. We’re paying the price for our stupidity.

      And you want to point to an academic study from 2019 as indicating we had this one. :lol:

      You’ll note I didn’t mention a single political figure. I’m depoliticizing the issue. It’s systemic. There is plenty of blame to go around.

        Well, I did allude to one political figure. He deserves it. What a dipshyt.

        Speaking of, I just discovered that if you cross the Florida-Georgia border, you're in a new state! Most people didn't know that, but I do now! :lol:

        Dipsh*t is too kind for that waste of breathable oxygen.

            what do you want broken?

            your graph does not change the results of the study. Not at all. As it said, we were the best prepared country for this. Does that mean we were ready for it? No, it simply says we were the best prepared.

            I don’t care if or who your trying to blame.

                Cool graphs bro.

                Doesn’t change what the study said. You seem to not understand you can be the best prepared country and still not be ready for it.

                  78 is a loon.
                  You can't anticipate every scenario. However had we done some things that we should have done a long time ago we'd be in better shape. For instance have essentials manufactured in the US. Don't rely on China. Enforce our borders.
                  The job of the Task Force is to solve problems. Which they do as soon as they pop up. Was the FDA a bottle neck for testing, yes. Rescind the regulation. Are people going to be unexpectedly unemployed. Get stimulus checks out as soon as possible. Will small business be hurt. Get them grants and loans ASAP. IS there a possible theraputic or vaccine. Lift regulations so they can start as soon as possible. Is 3M or other companies selling needed equipment off shore? Make them stop ASAP. Did NYPD need protective gear. They had it in 16 hours. Every day they are dealing with issues that pop up immediately. Is hindsight 20-20? yeah. Have we learned lessons? Sure. I hope we've learned not to manufacture essential medical and technological products overseas.
                  Even if this was the Obama administration I couldn't argue how fast they've reacted.

                    Good to know you believe in the powers of big government. In my opinion, they’ve let us down. You’ve gone out of your way to defend them.

                      Haven’t we tested as many as the rest of the world combined? Stands to reason we’d have the most confirmed cases. China probably has 10 times what they’ve reported. They’ve been at 81,000 for what, 3 weeks?

                          Not necessarily chiming in on your particular argument with Tom.

                          But 48 days, China?

                                I am so comforted to know a group of 20-25 dolts on this board know more than the rest of the world.

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.

                                        The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
