    Along with New York and Seattle, New Orleans has emerged as one of the early U.S. hot spots for the coronavirus, making it a national test case for how to control and treat the disease it causes. Chief among the concerns raised by doctors working in the Louisiana city is the death rate, which is close to three times that of New York and over four times that of Seattle, based on publicly reported data.

    New Orleans residents suffer from obesity, diabetes and hypertension at rates higher than the national average, conditions that doctors and public health officials say can make patients more vulnerable to COVID-19, the highly contagious respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus.

    Bill Gates 2015 Future Epidemic WARNING!
    And advising we need to prepare for a future Epidemic and not only work on war equipment but work on dealing with a viral epidemic back in 2015. You can pull it up on YouTube! And it is a true fact he did! And here we are since evidently it fell on deaf ears! AND NOW HERE WE ARE!:rolleyes:

    For viral epidemics and for biological terrorism. Covid 19 is testing the system and coming up short on medical supplies, etc.

    One thing we know for sure from the Anthrax scare (and murders) right after 9/11, is that hazardous biological substances can sometimes be smuggled out of secure facilities. And if they are weaponized, could make Covid 19 look like baby school.

    If we are under-prepared for a pandemic that only kills a small percent of its victims, how are we going to deal with something much more lethal?

    In all this I have to compliment Trump he is one tough guy! I would have used some more colorful words starting with S.
    He is not only dealing with the idiots like Pelosi but dealing with the Epidemic and the Media.;)

    I am surprised and admiring that he hasn't gone full-metal-batsh!t on some of the butt-heads that throw out skewed questions to try for a gotcha.

    open a book on the history of the bubonic plague, when there was a outbreak in the family or in a house, officials locked up everyone in the house so they would contain it. then put a black cross on the door warning other to stay clear. when they went back to retrieve the bodies there was survivors in some cases

    or you can go to read it here

    yeah, I know it doesn't sound sinister to you guys, but mother nature can sometime be a real b&tch. she has been reeking havoc on humans with disasters, diseases, pestilence long, long, long and much longer before this

    but, if you'd rather come up with your own "feelings" about it :rolleyes:or read hairbrained conspiracy theories about it ...……...for that I give you this guy, the king of nutjobs. I'm sure he and others like him have a devoted followers on this board

    And yesterday he unleashed our Military against the Drug Cartels. All along the East, South, and West Coasts. Navy, Marines, Air Force.
    Chairman of Joint Chief of Staff Gen Milley put it out there to the Cartels. I liked his words
    and watched live when he spoke.

    there are no feelings in a book of historical fact...….you're the one that puts a lot of stock in feelings, more precisely "your feelings":confused:, which doesn't even amount to a anthill of beans on the subject.

    Someone said to 'open a history book'! Well history has shown that the more the guberment gets involved the worse the crisis will get, the longer it will last, and the longer it will take to recover. JUST SOME LESSONS WE HAVE NOT LEARNED FROM HISTORY!!:( The guberment will say, WE ARE SMARTER THAN YOU (peasants), THEREFORE WE KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU, SO SEAT DOWN AND SHUT UP. :(
