After they took drastic steps to close down the city — including shutting down the subways overnigh
Yeah, like more than a month after the pandemic was declared, did they finally shutdown the subways and clear them... for the first time in 115 years. May 6th was the shutdown, when did NY go on lock-down? NY lock-down started about March 20th, subway shut down, May 6th.
The dire warnings were based on the trajectory of the curve as seen at one time.
Dire warnings, yeah that was the problem, they didn't need to issue dire warnings and put the whole country into lock-down. It should have been done based on actual science and not projections written by someone who has a history of being drastically wrong. In fact so wrong, that a google search for "virus models wrong" provides a plethora of articles making excuses for why they were wrong and what we can learn from them. Never mind the fact we destroyed one of the best economies in history on over hyped data from non-medical experts.
Conditions changed because people largely complied with the lockdown. That's why they didn't need the hospitals, or the ventilators, or for that matter, millions of doses of Trump-hyped useless hydroxychloroquine — that's a good thing.
They weren't needed because the models were completely wrong, it had nothing to do with the lockdown or or well people followed the tiny tyrants rules.
The one study that was used to "discredit" the HCQ claims has been withdrawn because of poor data collection. Image that...
An influential article that found hydroxychloroquine increases the risk of death in coronavirus patients has been retracted over data concerns.
Three of the study's authors said they could not longer vouch for its veracity because Surgisphere, a healthcare firm behind the data, would not allow an independent review of its dataset.
Its findings led the WHO to suspend its testing on the anti-malaria drug.
But leaders including US President Donald Trump continue to tout its use.
Surgisphere chief executive Sapan Desai, the study's fourth author, told The Guardian newspaper he would co-operate with an independent audit but said transferring the data would "violate client agreements and confidentiality requirements".
This article was from June 4th, I wonder why it wasn't given the same airtime the original story was given to discredit HCQ. Could it be MSM bias? Even you didn't know about the study, proving my point about the airtime.
One would almost think you were disappointed more people didn't die.
Yeah, nice switch around. You and Zardoz are the ones watching the daily materbation death count. I'm disappointed that we destroyed an economy and put millions of people, including myself, out of work for faulty models and because of a media that hated our current President. Much like Zardoz and you, they are now hooked on the death and destruction that the US is becoming, and it only happened in a few short months because of the left. WTG guys!!!
And no, it wasn't necessary for every city and locality in the country to go as far as NYC did but the specific conditions there made it imperative.
Bullshit, there was never any reason for the rest of the country to take the same steps that NY did. There were no specific conditions, there was hyped reports of a deadly virus that had mainly killed the elderly and people with weak immune systems. Healthy people for the most part don't know they are sick, you don't quarantine the healthy, you quarantine the sick.
Exactly. Without screening any of them for symptoms.
Yeah, which symptoms were they looking for back then? The 2 week or 4 day soak time? How about if they were asymptomatic, which it seems a majority of people were? Tell me again with your current knowledge what they were suppose to do 3 months ago, 4 months ago or even 5 months ago?
Many of them came from Europe — the majority of them disembarked in the NY metro region. ?
We were talking about the shutdown of travel from China, why are you changing the subject? Easier to duck and dive for Zardoz if you change the subject.
430,000 people returned from China in the two months following Trump's order. How do you think the disease got here?
Look around, it was a virus, did you really think it wasn't going to spread across the world? Did you think the US is a magic place where virus's don't spread?
