Early in this crisis, Trump promoted the notion that COVID-19 would “wash over” the US population “like the flu”. He did that while still doing lip service / happy talk about testing, ventilators, and bed numbers.
Fox News still manages to find people who are OK with a much higher mortality rate closer to that of unmitigated care. Trump is still of the same opinion from his continuing belief that the death rate would be zero at one moment in February, to today raising that number to 60-70k. What the flock.
Family doctor here: In my nursing homes COViD has swept through with an almost 25% mortality rate. Few of these deaths have been counted due to: NO TESTS! Deaths mostly invisible as occurring in facilities banned to visitors. And no one seems to care— Alicia Skarimbas MD (@ASkarimbas) April 27, 2020
