Re: Coronavirus

No we’re not. CDC says 38,000. And 30,000 of those are over age 65. I assume your number is coming from here? Data during this period are incomplete because of the lag in time between when the death occurred and when the death certificate is completed, submitted to NCHS and processed for reporting ...

Re: 2020 Democratic Nomination Process Mega-thread

Not the same at all because there is reasonable doubt about whether or not the one allegation we are talking about (the Reade allegation) about Biden is true.

Re: Coronavirus

BTW this thing of bringing up Kavanaugh is an effort to divert attention from who Biden is running against. When it comes to allegations by women of sexual misconduct there is no comparison. People on the Republican side are eventually going to have to deal with the fact that, if they are going to g...

Re: Poll: Do You Support Re-Opening Most of America?

I voted support with safety protocols in place but I think it's a very difficult situation. If that's done and it backfires the economic damage over the longer term may be greater than the economic damage done by remaining very strict until effective treatments and/or vaccines are developed. I voted...

Re: Coronavirus

I think that if you deleted the data for NYC the total number would obviously decrease but we would see a distinct upward trend right now instead of a relatively flat situation. The reason is that deaths reported by NYC peaked on April 7 and have been declining. Here is a graph from https://www1.ny...

Even if there had been zero cases in New York State our positi...

Re: Coronavirus

Ok. We have passed a milestone of sorts. As of today the CDC COVID-19 death count went to 62,406. That's the count as of 4 pm EDT yesterday. See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html. So now the actual COUNT of COVID-19 exceeds the 61,000 deaths point estimate for ...

I think that during his interview this morning Biden should've said "sure" to the idea of having the records at University of Delaware searched for references to Reade when Mika Brzezinski asked him about that this morning.
