    NYC alone has more deaths (2472) than all but SIX other COUNTRIES.

    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

    But as of 4:45 PM today only THIRTY-EIGHT deaths with no underlying conditions!!!!

    (remove asterisk to see PDF)

    *https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/doh/downloads/pdf/imm/covid-19-daily-data-summary-deaths-04052020-2.pdf

    Is the premature death of 2000+ people in one city, with preexisting diabetes, heart/lung disease, etc., who should have been self-quarantining or otherwise protected by family or local health officials going to collapse our economy and kill hundreds or thousands as a ‘cure” ?

      My sympathy to all those affected, but we need perspective. In 2009-2010, 12,000 Americans died from Swine flu, in addition to the usual 30 to 60 thousand seasonal flu deaths. Meanwhile, the “HCQ Deniers” are doing their best to win the propaganda war.

      Don’t worry, that 38 will soon be increased by a factor of 20. For the models, don’cha know.

    Using latest number of 9,548 coronavirus deaths have SKYROCKETED to 27 ten thousandths of a percent (.000027) of U.S. population. In New York City, the epicenter of U.S. infections, the death rate is about ten times higher than the national average at roughly three hundredths of a percent (.0003). So even in NYC you have a 99.9997 chance of not dying from coronavirus yet people are afraid to take a breath. Logic has been completely discarded in favor of panic and hysteria. No country can survive this kind of decision making.

    From an email buddy who is former Navy Flight Surgeon and now an AME (FAA-authorized Aviation Medical Examiner) who has LOTS of aviation friends:

    “FedEx still operating close to peak internationally, but we’ve slowed severely domestically. Balances out financially, as we’re still “above the line” (reference our last quarterly earnings statement). We’ve pulled 4 “semi-retired” FedEx MD-11s out of the desert and sent them to the Pacific (where I’ve been operating for the past 2 ½ months). Every run we’re flying there (between Honolulu, Sydney, Guangzhou, Osaka, Narita, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, etc…) are maxed out. No one else flying, so all that residual cargo is being directed our way. That being said, every route is nearly empty, and every airport is completely full of parked jets. A couple of examples:

    Flew from Osaka to Beijing during 1 segment of a trip, and saw only 2 additional aircraft airborne the entire flight. During the time we fly that route (one of the busiest in the world), nearly 100+ additional aircraft are normally airborne. Silence on the radio, from the controllers, etc… most pacific airports have 1 controller that now covers regional approach, tower, and ground… ALL 3 of them. We landed in Beijing and were the only moving aircraft the entire time we taxied in, dropped our cargo, reloaded, and taxied out. Saw 2 other aircraft moving on the ground as we took off. But that was it. Literally 600+ aircraft parked in every square inch of concrete on that airport. Beijing (and most airports like it) are down to 1 runway, with all additional being used as parking lots for aircraft. Very eerie to see it like that.

    Was lucky enough to have a United deadhead back from Osaka to SFO at the conclusion of one of my runs. Osaka is one of the busiest international “jump-off points” in Japan, and FedEx has a great facility there. From the time I made my way from the FedEx aircraft we landed there, checked in through one of the largest customs facilities I’ve ever seen (at Osaka International), took an inter-airport train to the international terminal, and finally made my way to the only 1 of 6 lounges open to await my flight’s departure (United), I only saw 2 people in the entire airport terminal. TWO. That United flight was on a 787, and Polaris Business Class (which normally holds about 36 people) had 4 of us in it. The entire aircraft had about 40 people total… most were United employees (aircrew and attendants) repositioning back to the United States after their routes had been cancelled. This was United’s last flight between Osaka and SFO for a long while (apparently), and there were many hugs and tears with United personnel, Japan airport folks they knew, etc… And the entire United ground crew lined up in a formation to solute the aircraft as we departed… reminded me of Navy cruises when we were launching aircraft to head back to the beach after 6+ months.

    Global devastation and economic impacts are very apparent as one travels as much as we do internationally. This is going to take YEARS to recover, and return any semblance of “normalcy” (if that term is even relevant any longer) to many areas all over the globe. Incredible to see the lengths FedEx goes to, to keep us all healthy and protected through this mess. My hats off to our dispatchers, ground managers, and everyone on the team who’s making it happen safely for us all… as regulations and customs requirements literally change day to day… flight by flight.

    Best,”

    CNN today warning couples against having babies, or risk infection and death.

    The same people who demand abortion clinics remain open.

    Sick sociopathic f***s.

    “Some may joke about a coronavirus baby boom. Here’s why you shouldn’t try to conceive in quarantine.”

    “At first blush, you might think couples with some extra time on their hands would do things that could lead to a stork visiting nine months from now. Yet with US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin warning of dire scenarios and a possible 20% unemployment rate, couples whose jobs are vulnerable in this economy are likely to think again about kicking off their parenting journeys this spring.”

    “Then there’s the possibility of more couples splitting up. One marriage registry official in China said he saw a quarantine-related spike in divorces, showing that more time in closed quarters may be doing some couples more harm than good.”

    “But for couples weathering this storm together, is this a time when many will choose to add to their brood?”

    “Though being snowed in can be a little fun and lead to romance, the pandemic is stressful for couples: “[The] libido is down and menstrual cycles may be off,” Wellenstein said. “It may not be possible to conceive due to this.””

    But for couples who still have the urge, Wellenstein said she would “absolutely not” advise anyone to get pregnant now, due to the uncertainty swirling around Covid-19. “You can push off conceiving and getting pregnant,” she said.

    There are a number of risk factors, starting with the fact that there’s simply less care available in many areas as hospitals prioritize more resources toward helping the surge of Covid-19 patients being admitted.

    And for women who are already pregnant, each trip to the hospital during the pandemic carries additional risk.

    “It’s never ideal to have any infectious disease during the pregnancy due to the unknown impact on the child,” Wellenstein said. “To enter a hospital puts her at risk.”

    Regardless of where the science ultimately lands on transmission of the novel coronavirus in the placenta, it’s a risk not worth taking, Wellenstein says. Once the baby is born, we know with certainty that she is at risk from any virus carriers she may come in contact with.

      I’m pregnant. My provider told me in January that the data suggests there is no risk to the fetus if the mother contracts the China flu. I asked because we travelled to Florida.

      I’m not worried, because I’m not over 50 and have never smoked.

    President Trump has a nominee for Inspector General of the CIA. Not an Acting IG, a regular IG. Announced the nomination on Friday. Guess the news flew under the radar because of firing Atkinson at ODNI.

      Jenna Ellis “You Dems whine about Trump supposedly being a dictator, now whine that he’s NOT a dictator.

      They are just itching and baiting; hoping the President does it – specifically so they can, in full harmony chorus, shout that he *is* a dictator – SEE!!??

      Hopefully he won’t take the bait.

      Since they’re going to bitch and whinge no matter what he does; I’d rather they moan about how he hasn’t taken over everything than how he has.
