    For your information concerning my prediction of the course of the coronavirus. I believe the coronavirus will diminish and gradually fade in May,

    I believe that the Coronavirus will follow a similar pattern as other virus that jump from animals to humans. At first they are very contagious and have a high death rate, as time progresses the death rate drops and the severity of the virus infection decreases in part with the development of our immunity. This pattern was followed in China for about three months+. This is the pattern that will likely be for the virus as it infected other populations. As time passes in all countries and the course of the infection over time the severity and the death rate will drop, and Coronavirus will become endemic with the human population and possibly will cycle at different times from humans to animals and humans to animals.

    See some graphs and maps that reflect the nature of the coronavirus over time here.

    The conclusion is that China did not defeat the coronavirus. The coronavirus is following its natural course in relation to humans.

    While the left likes to stereotype Fox News viewers as being old white men the fact is that describes the viewership of all cable news channels. Interestingly according to a 2018 NBC/WSJ poll those who watch MSNBC are slightly older:

    Wrong meaning, try again.

    Also where did you get your numbers? My initial source said 67, this one might be slightly more uptodate, but its a difference of two years, 65. Your number seems way off. Is that why you took a picture?

    Both you and shuny seem unwilling to address any of the posts that offer evidence that contradicts your narrative. Sure Trump tried to stem the panic that was sweeping the country being stoked by the MSM since panic never is productive and in fact exacerbates any situation making it much worse. His attempt failed. It was sort of like trying to use a broom to sweep back the sea.

    But to say or imply that Trump didn't care or didn't understand the severity of the problem is not supported by the facts. He was warning us about this in January only to be mocked by folks just like you and shuny. Even earlier he signed Executive Order 13887.

    But the TDS crowd studious ignores things like that and instead continues to push terminally debunked myths like he hamstrung the CDC and criticizing him for rejecting test kits that provided a false negative rate of 30% which are worse than useless since nearly a third of those tested who are infected with the coronavirus will be told they don't have it (and it was actually the CDC that rejected them not Trump).

    Sure, not everything he's done has been perfect. There have been missteps. But I seriously doubt that any of the Democrats would have done any better. In fact Biden's proposals appear to have been directly plagiarized (something he has a history of doing) from what Trump has already done and proposed. In fact the major difference between them is that Biden wouldn't support any travel bans. And his naming a guy to his team of experts who thinks we should die at 75 doesn't exactly inspire confidence either.

    So instead of addressing the posts that directly responded to your OP like you demanded you choose to mutter to yourself.

    I found the source, which I asked for. I guess I stand corrected, it was the median at 65, though the article said the average.
