    We're Number One!

    The US has more corona virus cases than any other country in the world. https://www.npr.org/sections/coronav...of-coronavirus

    I doubt if NPR is getting funds from China for publishing the fact that we have more cases than China. China has a larger population, and had the the unenviable situation of facing the novel (new) virus when it was really new, a novum.

    Singapore and South Korea has done a good job,a model for other countries.

    My question is whether Trump's example is one the world should follow for a future epidemic.

    Each day, we are treated to the evidence of how great a response the US is achieving in its war against the coronavirus by our war time president.

    Each day we are treated to pleas by governors (like Gov Whitmer, who "just sits there and blames the federal government"), by hospital workers, for needed supplies. And NYC is storing bodies in refrigerated trucks because the morgues are full.

    And each day we are seeing the results in places like Singapore, Hong Kong, and South Korea.

    And of course, Trump is doing a splendid job? https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/27/polit...nse/index.html

    Youíre not very bright, are you? Do you want to take a guess why the coronavirus is less of a problem in the Southern Hemisphere or in the warmer climates? China has spent months lying about the virus and has been dealing with it, for months, so of course they will have more cases.

    There is the possibility that temperature affects the persistence of the virus.

    But in spite of those lies, the evidence is that the Chinese efforts have been successful.

    I am sure that a person as bright as yourself will recognize the contradiction in you last sentence. They "will have more cases", of course..... But do they? Chines rate of new cases has plummeted, they have to worry about those entering the country now! In other words, travelers fro the US, which is now the epicenter of covid 19 epidemic.

    Here is one covid 19 tracker: https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/26/covid-19-tracker/

    New York City is the city of international business, has a huge urban population, and is the right temps for spread. China has also welded doors on houses shut, among other measures I doubt you want done here.

    From the onset of the Chicom coronavirus we were aware that at some point this would inevitably happen regardless of what was or wasn't done. Did your source (Chinese Communist News) mention that? The same folks who repeatedly condemned Trump's ban on air travel from China as racist despite Fauci's saying that if he had listened to the left "we would have had many, many more cases right here that we would have to be dealing with."

    Geography lesson: China is not in the Southern hemisphere, much of China the same latitude as the
    USA and Europe, nor is most of China tropical. If the coronavirus has a seasonal factor. The Southern hemisphere may yet experience the pandemic.

    Do you think the only way to use social distancing is to weld doors shut? Yes China does bad things. Have not heard about man's fallen nature? So it should come as no surprise that bad things happen, especially in a country with totalitarian impulses.

    New cases in the US are increasing, new cases in China are decreasing. Japan's covid 19 is not accelerating, South Korea is controlling rate.

    Singapore, South Korea, and Japan are not totalitarian, and have implemented successful strategies. Other cities across the world which have significant air travel have managed the crisis effectively.

    I know: But China, But China, But China, But China, But China, But China, But China, But China, But China, But China, But China
