I went back and looked. Head of CDC got in front of the cameras on February 25th and said "It is going to be bad" and elaborated that everybody should prepare to be disrupted with closures, stay at home orders, etc... That set off a right wing media shitshorm of conspiracy theories about the thing that is nothing more than a common cold that is being weaponized by the media against Trump. His own CDC said it is going to be bad and he and the entire GOP spent weeks pretending like we should just ignore it and that all the epidemiologists stating otherwise were part of a worldwide left wing conspiracy to attack Trump and Bolsonaro.

So the right wingers keep insisting the this thing is at worst as bad as H1N1. H1N1 killed 13,000 in the US in a year. At the current infection rate Covid will probably kill into the 5 digits in April. You think our medical systembhas the beds and vents to handle that? You realize that the 98% survival rate requires vents? Do you know how sick you are when you get put on a vent? I don't think they do based on what I read in The Federalist Papers today. Why do the Federalist Papers and RT look like mirror sites? Does it not worry you right wingers that RT echoes your talking points and not those of medical amd biological experts?

And it first hit China in mid December. Two full months to prepare and they went in reverse and did their damnedest to downplay the soon to be pandemic. Trump's gut feeling that it would be gone by April and his insistence that everyone can get tested, even though there were no tests available; all in front of the country on national television. Hell, is the right media even addressing the issue now?

It's a failure of this clown show on so many levels. 'There's only 14 cases and it will soon be zero' - trump

Complete and utter failure of the American people.

And they had the nerve to call Dems Hopey Changy. Granted that was just a psycho they ran for VP but still. Their faith based, science rejecting, positions on this and climate change make you wonder if they know $hit about anything to include economics, sports, the hardships of the working class, equality...

Looking at the stats, seems that we are handling it better than most. Those countries with universal health care aren't exactly tearing it up, are they?

Once again, are you dumb enough to believe that it isn't going to get much worse in this country? And what part of $6 trillion to fix the damage already wrought do you not comprehend?
