let me to follow up and allow me downgrade politicians to 0. We have an infectious disease institute doing a pretty good job so far and they came up with a plan to manage and control the situation from now on, how to put things back on track, how to slowly re-open in a safe way. But this plan was layered over a few months period until the summer, with accent on people above 40 to keep respecting certain rules when going out will be eventually allowed and ones over 60 avoiding exposure for as much as possible and rather keep stay inside. The Health Minister - a doctor- said "yes, good plan, I fully support it, will forward to prime-minister and discuss".The Health Minister a few days later after discussing with the Government: "no, I never said that about the plan, I'm not supporting it"President took to the stage today and said "No, the institute has no say in this and they should mind their business". Why? Well, he wants to re-open by end of May because that's when the local elections were supposed to be held and he does not want to delay them because his liberal party is going to shit already, dropping percentages. He also wants to attract the above mentioned age groups towards his party, to make it look like he is siding with them against the "oppressors" trying to keep people inside and went as far as naming the plan "totalitarian and unacceptable".

The ONLY thing you heard out of the Democrats at that time was impeachment. Now they are blaming the president. Where were they? Trying to impeach a president and calling travel bans (that probably saved many lives) racist.
You shouldn't blame your government for not having PPE. Because while China was hiding the virus from the rest of the world, they where also buying over 80% of the PPE that was on the open market at the time. And they have now pushed the first patient with the virus back to Nov 17th, 2019.
Germany has a high rate of tested people. In my country we barely test people but the recovery is probably just as high.
That's the Netherlands.
Also the food, healthcare, and quality of life may be better than it is in the US. I'm just curious as to how it spread to other countries so fast.
@Lentebok Sadly Netherlands, the home country of Wim Hof, if one of the few countries where the number of dead is higher than the number of those that recovered. There are only a few such countries. Not only higher. MORBIDLY higher. The number of dead outnumber the number of the recovered over 14 to one! The next country is Ireland with 8 times more dead than recovered, and the next Norway with 5:1. I am sorry to say, if we are to trust the reported statistics, Norway has the lowest recovery ratio on the world.How is it that we in Germany have all learned from Wim Hof, which is why we are safe and healthy, but his own country is the worst in the world in recovery? I find this extremely puzzling.
You're weird, and probably dangerous. Nobody has heard of what you're pushing, over here.
@goaded Don't you think that I heard it somewhere, and wherever it was others heard it too? Social media and youtube are AWASH with people's accounts, testimonials, videos, sources shared, the research studies and science journals. You're 55 yet you seem to have A LOT to catch up on. You would start by doing some research yourself. If you know how that's done. But hten again, if you did, you would've done it already. Not sure what to say to you. Except maybe, ignore everything you read from me, ignore science, and live your life in the warm puddle you've been living it in. If you get sick, you'll pop some pills. It's good for ya.
I'm wondering why your profile says you're in the UK, but you're claiming to be in Germany, and that "we [Germans] have learned to consciously control our immune systems", when that's plainly a lie.
So, it seems there is some science behind this, but based on the abilities of one person, and involving things that there's absolutely no way many Germans are doing.www.newscientist.com/.../www.newscientist.com/.../
@goaded You forgot to mention that ANYONE can learn these techniquesmedicalxpress.com/.../...ting-immune-response.htmlhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6jqaALpEFM
But you're claiming that Germans *have*, and that it's the cause of the good numbers, and that's not true.
@goaded You seem to know better from out there. Please educate us.
I can tell if someone's making stuff up, especially when I'm living where they're claiming to be from.
@goaded Then you are perfectly aware that even though Spain is claimed to be the world's most healthy country because of a mediterranian diet, we are way ahead of them with a great majority following healthy alternative diets. And instead of siestas we exercise more, have saunas, etc. etc. Don't tell me you don't know a bunch of people that practice the WHM. Or breatharianism for that matter. The rest of the world is way behind. Saying that, there are some Germans that are almost as ignorant, some even more. It would be interesting to see where you stand. Not that it really matters, you and your buddies (birds of a feather) do not represent a country of 83 million people.
I see you're lying about where you are, again, Your Holiness.If what you said were true, it would be being pushed on every TV channel and news report, along with other countries following suit. It's not. Because it's not true. You just picked the country with the best numbers to pretend it's happened because of your miracle cure. Typical snake-oil salesman.
@goaded This snake oil happens to have been published in the world's leading science journals from Nature through NCBI to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4034215/Best snake oil in the world! The method is on youtube free for all to watch, and the app is on the official WHM website for free download. Snake oil doesn't really get cheaper than this, does it? And for this snake oil you don't even have to kill any snakes!It doesn't take much brains to follow something as simple and as widely published in all the world's science journals. As for you, you better not waste your time on this scam, instead make sure you write letters to all these science journals with your expert opinion and complaining that they are all publishing lies. Have fun.
If you recall, I accepted that there's some science behind it, I absolutely reject the idea that Germany's relatively successful actions against the virus have anything whatsoever to do with it.
Here are the real reasons Germany is doing relatively well.Testing available in January.Testing of asymptomatic people.Testing is free (covered by the world's oldest universal health care system at no cost to the consumer)Testing of medical staff (those most likely to catch and spread the disease), regularly and frequently.Early treatment.Trust in the government to make sensible decisions.www.nytimes.com/.../...coronavirus-death-rate.htmlTelling people they can believe it away will get people killed.
@goaded Those are not things that ONLY GERMANY IN THE ENTIRE WORLD is doing. Stop spouting nonsense.What people need is to stop being dependent on pharmaceutical products and living lifestyles that are conducive to the development of a lowered immune system, consequently getting sicker and sicker. In the 2018 flu season 80,000 people died from flu in the USA alone. Nearly twice as many as from Covid-19. That was the highest number in over 40 years. Do you know why? Because people's immune system is weaker and weaker.The reason the WHM works is because is attenuates immune response. It dampens pro-inflammatory cytokine production. Why is that relevant? Because covid kills by causing INFLAMMATION of the lungs. Even people that live healthy active lives will die or nearly die from Covid due to what's known as cytokine-storm - an overproduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines that destroys the body:www.statnews.com/.../What you need is to DAMPEN that cytokine response. This is exactly what the WHM does.I suggest you start reading some ACTUAL science and stop suggesting to people that German people are recovering because they were given a magic test that is not available anywhere else in the world. Enough with your lies.www.sciencedaily.com/.../140505155210.htm
A the risk of fanning your dung fires..."In mid-January, long before most Germans had given the virus much thought, Charité hospital in Berlin had already developed a test and ***posted the formula online***."They're doing more of it, did it earlier, and it was helped by the fact that the original patients were younger in Germany than in Italy and Spain, as you'd know if you'd read the article.And now, more lies: "In the 2018 flu season 80,000 people died from flu in the USA alone.""2017-2018 season... 61,000 influenza-associated deaths""2018–2019 season... 34,200 deaths from influenza"Look, I don't mind people pointing out proven techniques for being healthier (eat veg, exercise more, hell, even lie in snow, if it works), I object to people who lie about their effectiveness and claim more than they should. (I feel the same about pharmaceutical companies, and Donald Trump, whose preferred treatment kills more than normal care.)
@goaded You have some serious issues using the internet to obtain useful information.www.statnews.com/.../Go pop a pill and take a vaccine. It's good for ya!
Why would I take medical advice from someone I can plainly see started off by lying to me?
@goaded Because that's what you've been doing all your life when you listened to all the pharmaceutical commercials and toothpaste ads. TV has convinced you to be a consumer, of junk food, of "cool" clothes, this chemical (deodorant, shampoo, etc.) or that gadget. TV has convinced you that you NEED all those things to be happy. And you believed it! Your life is built on lies you heard from your brain-washing machine. Living lies is who you are.
You clearly know less about me than you do about Germany in general. Lying about the effectiveness of something doesn't help to prove it works.
@goaded Don't you ever sleep? You seem to spend all day every day on the internet, on a single website. I did't even turn on my computer all day yesterday and only turned it on in the evening today. Don't you have a life to live?
We're in the same time zone! You could just admit that you were lying about being German, or at least that Germans are magically immune from the virus because of something I'm certain most have never heard of, let alone practiced, or you could just shut up. It's all the same to me.
@goaded Yes I saw when you changed your country to Germany. The world would be grateful if you would just stop spreading lies about there being magical tests in Germany that do not exist in any other country on the planet that magically makes German people immune.
OMG! What is is the Americans say? "I'm rubber you're glue, your words bounce off me and stick to you." What are you, 10? Not that anyone cares, but they could seach for my user name and Germany on here and find multiple references to where I live.You could just admit that you were lying about being German, or at least that Germans are magically immune from the virus because of something I'm certain most have never heard of, let alone practiced, or you could just shut up. It's all the same to me.
@goaded Of course you never heard of it, science news usually arrive to Germany with a 10-year delay. As for you, it seems like you have LOT of catching up to do, buddy. What are you, like 5? When you grow a little older you will have science classes, then you will learn about the immune system. I hope your mommy gave you plenty of vaccines so you don't catch a cold in the meantime!
I want to hate how nihilistic your comment is but I can't even disagree. This pandemic is highlighting how common sense is not very common.
He didn't just fail to process applications-he actively purged voting rolls and closed polling places in ethnic neighborhoods. Trump recently acknowledged that Republicans cannot win an election if everyone votes. Their vote suppression is real and not motivated by fear of "fraud"
@dmgstarfleet You're absolutely correct. He's a total piece of shit.
I have to do more research on "Exercise Cygnus" and the USA as well relies heavily on China's goods.
Can you tell me if there are still any clothing factories in UK? Those could have adjusted their machines t start producing masks and other pp. I'm genuinely asking because I don't know and is me personal opinion that in Europe we don't know how to make many things anymore. I mean, we have the designers and engineers and all the theory, but then everything gets produced elsewhere.Tks
@topur There are loads of back-street "sweat shops" in UK. Producing all sorts of clothing for sale in places like Camden Market in north London.
We account for 1.9% of the deaths and have the 5th oldest population. We sent a bunch of BiPAP machines to New York to help out. So I guess we’ve done a lot better than the media gave us credit for...
We also have pretty good data reporting...fdoh.maps.arcgis.com/.../8d0de33f260d444c852a615dc7837c86
Keep in mind it will supposedly come in waves over each season...
Not supposedly. 100% for sure that's gonna happen. And if not this particular one, there will be another. We know this because it is a regular event. And we have mechanisms by which we can deal with it. We are behaving on behalf of "theoretical" danger not on behalf of actual danger. That's the problem.
Oh how would I grade it? .. I dunno' I'm no professional.. I can't really grade them on that.. I also think it's too soon to say. This is history in the present right now. See this will be a well remembered, much spoken about historical event.. but it's happening right now. It's too soon to say.
O yeah Texas the best nation in the states
I don't want to say let the virus spread but doing nothing is better than doing a wrong deed (intended)If you are unknown of the consequences and you do what you NEED to do then it's right.
My family and I are from Pennsylvania and my grandfather works at a junkyard and still has to work.
Most from California are giving higher grades *applauds California
Yeah surprisingly we are doing much better than the rest of the states although our infection rate is at the top 5 of US states
Seems as though no one was prepared... Le'sigh.
That's true. We were not prepared. What makes it worse is that we were warned, and we could have done more, but didn't.
Especially in the light of the withheld report on Exercise Cygnus! UK is abysmal! Situation normal, then!
On a national level, trump gets an F.
Didn't know much about him before the pandemic but, seems to have more empathy than most politicians.
@lsjr16 @FGaines18Yeah, he "cares" but people are dying left and right.NYC accounts for 1/3 of the deaths in the entire country.NY state makes up 45% of all US deaths. The death rate is over 9% of cases in NYC and much higher than average for the state. I wouldn't give him a B+.
Yea true but he can’t do anything about the death rate it is sad
From outside India seems to be doing well with only around 17k cases in a population of 1300M..I don't know how accurate the numbers are or you are if just have 'lucky' factors like many people being resistant or the virus dying faster in a hot tropical climate. But my general idea is that India is doing well
India has been under lockdown for more than a month now and it's going to continue until 3rd of May. Government is giving money to people from national treasury and doing a ton of different things like this so that nobody needs to get out of their homes and everyone stays safe. Even some epic hits of past like Ramayan and Mahabharat ( one of the greatest books and longest dramas ever) are being broadcasted again. There are a lot of efforts that can't be mentioned here but are worth many lives.
I'm glad to know that
Yes! We all are together in this fight.
Maybe you should accept what the majority want?
@goaded Not if the majority want gulags and death.
I can see that's very similar to a higher minimum wage, universal health care and higher taxes on the rich and corporations.Wait, wouldn't making sure everyone has health care reduce the number of dead people?
@goaded Ah yes, "free" helthcare. Lots of mice have went for that cheese over the decades. Always with the same results. www.telegraph.co.uk/.../Elderly-patients-condemned-to-early-death-by-s
No. Universal health care.
First point I agree with there is so much money in invested into the prison systems that each prisoner should be able to stay in an isolated hotel for inmates during quarantine. The latter I don't better safe then sorry.
I had an encounter with the police last week. They didn't want to get near me. Asked me to give them my driver's license number instead my license because he didn't want to get that close to me. They were more paranoid than anyone I've seen yet.
The media as usual is exaggerating lying and stoking fear for ratings. Everybody's acting like it's the plague. If I see someone I know wearing a mask I will never quit mocking them.
The police my be just a department policy now and everyone has to follow. And agree the media is to blame for most of this.
