Political views[edit]

In April 2007, Francesa criticized Democratic Presidential nominees Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton after they called for the resignation of Don Imus, following comments Imus made about the Rutgers women's basketball team.[65]

 

In 2016, Francesa came out as a supporter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, supporting him as early as May 2016 and voting for him in the 2016 presidential election.[66] He has previously expressed support for Trump's national anthem perspectives, tweeting that the "NFL has lost its way" by allowing players to kneel for the playing of the national anthem.[67] Francesa also brushed off reports that President Trump's finances were in trouble, pointing out that he was still able to win the 2016 election.[68]

164k today.  Another 20k new cases.  3040 dead.  Mortality rate compared to known cases is at 1.8%  It's slowly climbed over the last week.  24 states with 1000+ cases.  

 

We had 17k new cases on the 26th and has only went up to just over 20k today.  Since we're largely certain there are more cases out there, have we reached our testing limit?  Either because many states are only testing people with symptoms or we are just at pure manpower limits?  Or both?

I think the body bag stories and images, plus Trump’s own realization spilling forth to his crowd is going to put the real fear in people. Plus a few notable people have passed away. Nobody is going anywhere anytime soon and hopefully these numbers start to trend down.

Yeah.  About 20 something years ago.  Inexperienced doctor.  I can handle pain but that hurt like a bitch.  LOL

Almost 2 years since I had one that way. Didn't need to piss and wasn't going to waste my day waiting. 

 

Definitely not pleasant but the nurse knew what she was doing, thankfully.

I was negative and didn't even need the test.  That was my second experience with negligent health care.  First was a nurse at an eye doctor who wanted to give me a glaucoma test when I was there with shrapnel in my eye.  I basically told her to fuck off, I was 22 years old and pretty sure I didn't have glaucoma.

Suspected SARS virus and flu samples found in luggage of Chinese citizen traveling to the U.S. from China

 

WASHINGTON — In late November 2018, just over a year before the first coronavirus case was identified in Wuhan, China, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at Detroit Metro Airport stopped a Chinese biologist with three vials labeled “Antibodies” in his luggage. 

 

The biologist told the agents that a colleague in China had asked him to deliver the vials to a researcher at a U.S. institute. After examining the vials, however, customs agents came to an alarming conclusion.

 

“Inspection of the writing on the vials and the stated recipient led inspection personnel to believe the materials contained within the vials may be viable Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) materials,” says an unclassified FBI tactical intelligence report obtained by Yahoo News.

 

The report, written by the Chemical and Biological Intelligence Unit of the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate (WMDD), does not give the name of the Chinese scientist carrying the suspected SARS and MERS samples, or the intended recipient in the U.S. But the FBI concluded that the incident, and two other cases cited in the report, were part of an alarming pattern.

 

The Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate assesses foreign scientific researchers who transport undeclared and undocumented biological materials into the United States in their personal carry-on and/or checked luggage almost certainly present a US biosecurity risk,” reads the report. “The WMDD makes this assessment with high confidence based on liaison reporting with direct access.”

 

The report, which came out more than two months before the World Health Organization learned of a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan that turned out to be COVID-19, appears to be part of a larger FBI concern about China’s involvement with scientific research in the U.S. While the report refers broadly to foreign researchers, all three cases cited involve Chinese nationals.

 

In the case of the suspected SARS and MERS vials, the intelligence report cites another classified document that is marked “FISA,” meaning it contains information collected under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

 

Retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert Spalding, who worked on China issues on the National Security Council under the Trump administration, said “there is a threat” posed by Chinese nationals carrying biological samples but believes it’s “likely the carrier ... would be someone who is unwitting,” making it hard to determine the intent. “Some likely could be deliberate, to test our ability to identify and intercept. Others could be opportunistic,” he said.

 

Concerns about Chinese biosafety are not new. For example, the SARS outbreak in 2003 was followed by several incidents of infections caused by laboratory accidents, including eight cases that resulted from mishandling at the Chinese Institute of Virology in Beijing.

 

“There have been cases in the past where a variant of some kind of flu pandemic had escaped from a laboratory because of mismanagement,” said Elsa Kania, an adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security.

That being said, let's look at what the formula predicts if the death rate ends up being unchanged (either because not enough was done to mitigate it, or even with mitigation, it remained unchanged anyway).

As I said, absolutely devastating.

 

 

So, after the first 3 days, the number of actual deaths is unfortunately following my formula.

 

My formula predicted 3143 deaths, and the actual number is 3180 (https://infection2020.com/)

 

Today will be very telling, as my formula predicts an additional 785 deaths to bring the total to 3928.  If the actual numbers continue to follow my formula,  it will start to get really ugly very quickly, and the public will panic even more.

 

By the way, the total number of deaths has now surpassed 9/11.

You have now been officially dubbed Doctor Death! :65_mask:  Let's see how the Denali death model numbers go from here...

A New Orleans official said the city is readying for an uptick in coronavirus-related deaths. There are currently 1,480 coronavirus cases and 86 deaths in New Orleans. 
 

In a community of about 400,000 people, the Louisiana city is tracking at about 5% mortality rate, Collin Arnold, director of the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said.

 

“That’s high. And our population has a higher rate of underlying health conditions. We're preparing for a significant amount of hospitalizations and unfortunately, a corresponding significant amount of deaths,” Arnold said.
