Bolsonaro denied having the virus after initial reports claimed he did.

Also,

"Bolsonaro appeared to shrug off advice from his medical team to self-isolate after several members of his delegation to Florida tested positive for the virus. He instead joined a rally of supporters at a pro-government demonstration, shaking hands, bumping fists and slapping the backs of marchers who turned out to show their support for him amid a political spat with Congress."

Good for him he didn't have it, that's good news, but why are we shitting on our president if a Brazilian president, whom Trump likes, said little cold will not be able to bring him down as he survived worse, including stabbing? A bit much, no? Heck, Trump said Chinese president was his friend, should we now shit on Trump also for Xi trying to mislead people on virus? You know, since they are friends and all.

How long until we surpass China in 1) cases and 2) deaths.  My case is about three days for cases and probably a week for deaths.  The myth of American greatness is crumbling. We are handling this as badly and incompetently as anyone on Earth.

There is something seriously wrong with you.

Keep telling yourself that.
254,000 people have been tested.
30,000 positive. 400 deaths.
More people die in car crashes daily.

If we do not have enough testing capacity for the disease, I can't imagine they will be able to effectively tests for anti-bodies.

 

US is about to have the most cases of any country in the world despite having a huge head start on the Asian and European countries. The US response has been totally shameful.

Based on these numbers, a little over 100 people die in car crashes per day in the United States.  Covid-19 is already killing far more people than that per day in the United States.  We are about to see more New York Covid-19 deaths per day than we the average nationwide car deaths per day.

Also, there are variables when it comes to anti-bodies. For example: if the virus mutates (like flu does) then you partially or completely lose your immunity. Or it could be like polio that once you get vaccinated you have (nearly) life long immunity.

We have the most reported cases already.  Imagine how many we will have once we actually figure out how to start testing like the more competent countries.

The good news is that millions of people per week are losing their employer provided health care every week.  What a smart what to provide people with health care. Boggles my mind why more countries don't do it this ingenious way.
