Brace for impact. At the current trajectory, we're looking at 100,000 dead Americans 10 days from now. Let's hope that curve begins to flatten. The last two data points indicate that we may be seeing the beginnings of that.

NC looks to be flattening out quite a bit. We’ll see.

The interesting one for me is Washington. Early on it looked like the Seattle area was going to be what NYC ended up becoming. Instead, they'll be dropping out of the top 10 states very soon. They're barely hanging on at #10 as it is.

from talking to friends in the healthcare industry here i don't think that's the case.    people are being advised to not get tested, and to not go to the hospital if they can still breathe.

Medical research is huge in Seattle, they were probably the most ready for this

Maybe in the medical response but I don't think that has anything to do with how well they've handled the spread.

They shut stuff down pretty early on.  I work with a supplier out of Seattle and they shut down the facility and were working from home (where possible) before it was even a thought in my mind that other areas would start doing the same.

My friend is a nurse in Seattle. They were anything but ready for this. His hospital had 6 masks for the entire hospital when this started. They still don’t have enough PPE. The only place that could handle testing was the university of Washington. For a while, they were closing on the weekends. Total WTF stuff.

I wouldn’t even look at an overall chart of American cases. I’d look at each state as an individual country. There’s gonna be peaks at different times across the country.

This was the advice given to me.  Stay home unless I have trouble breathing, then head to ER immediately. Pretty much don't waste a test and medical staffs time if I'm not in serious trouble.

That's basically how I understand it here in CO too. If you think you have it but you're not having trouble breathing, just stay your ass at home and isolate. We'll probably never really have a clue how many people actually had this thing.

    • Trump is going to get 4 more because the shitty liberals are going to put Joe on the ticket.   Congrats.  You guys played right into MAGA's hands
    • That's because the ACA works through private insurance infrastructure not the federal government.  There are several rulings to pull from including that there is no purview in the Constitution for the federal government to legally provide insurance unless you agree that healthcare falls under the General Welfare clause of the Constitution.  And that question will be asked by any judge considered by Republicans 100% because General Welfare clause cover a large swath of entitlements/welfare and is the bane of Republicans existence.  Also, right to privacy will he challenged and there is precedence that the federal government should not have access to our private medical information and therefore is not legally allowed to provide insurance without private options for people who are concerned about the federal government having private information.  The other legal argument against in that same area would be that if federal government can demand private information for healthcare it can for other facets of government as well.  It will be challenged and will be decided by Supreme Court.  100%
    • The judges appointed by other Democratic presidents in less progressively friendly electorates says otherwise.  Plus Congress has a say, it isn't a unilateral decision.  Including those progressives I'm Congress in which he will need their support. And not sure how going 6-3 in the other direction for next few decades gets us closer.  In fact it ends the dream. Even at 5-4 it's already a pipe dream until a conservative judge retires or passes.
