    Re: Covid-19

    If people are interested in how a government could stop the spread, Taiwan would be the best example.

    If people are interested in how a government could stop the spread after it has broken out, Korea may be the best example.

    But one of the biggest reasons why they could be so effective is that they have national health care which gives them an established data base. It would be a lot easier for them to carry out any testing, monitoring and tracking. Not sure if it's applicable to United States. Still, the government could do a lot as lots of corporates are following the stand of the government.

    Hong Kong situation is a bit different as we have just gone through SARS.

      Your post did not have a single question. I'm confused.

        It is despicable that so many people -- on both sides of the political isle - see the virus as "how can I get political advantage."



        The press is the worse. I have no idea where to go for true non-bias news. It does not exist.

          Not sure how that gets to the U.S. being a main cause of the pandemic? That doesn't make any sense. What it does lead to is the country's inability to track the virus, which makes the response weaker in the U.S.
          But then you're saying that Trump's response, or lack of response, had no major effect on this thing. Or no effect worthy of being mentioned.

            I think BBC is pretty unbiased but obviously their coverage isn't American based.

                The one side of the media to first avoid is the one that has been calling it a hoax. The one Nunes was on today telling them to go out to eat. And don’t blame the media because people are greedy and selfish. We have been that way long before this

                    Trump just spoke for 15 minutes. Talked w lot about Wall Street. It a single word on when the kits will be available and what is being done about the shortage of ventilators. In fact nothing about the virus itself

                        It sure gives the appearance that he cares more about the economic impacts of the virus more than the virus itself, however this is the way it should be. When it comes to what’s next in the fight against the virus, he has no idea what he’s talking about, and the last thing we need to hear right now are more of his wild claims and hunches.
                        Let the kids play.

                              I assumed that was why the fed lowered rates. Get a bounce in the morning.

                                Actually it dropped after the announcement too. Now over 900.
