The Fusco family, an enormous and tight-knit clan torn by grief after four members succumbed to the pandemic coronavirus, is praying now for relatives still hospitalized with the illness, two of whom are in critical condition.

The patients are all children of Grace Fusco of Freehold, New Jersey, the 73-year-old family matriarch who died Wednesday shortly after her son, Carmine Fusco, and five days after her daughter, Rita Fusco-Jackson, a religious education teacher also from Freehold. Grace, a mother of 11, was unaware her children had died, a family spokeswoman told The New York Times.

On Thursday evening, a fourth member of the family, Vincent Fusco, died at CentraState Medical Center in Freehold, New Jersey, NJ.com reported.

More than 20 Fusco relatives remain in quarantine.

Schools are totally fucked. I am talking to a NYC teacher. A 36 year old principal in her district dropped dead from COVID. A few teachers got taken out too. Can you imagine what the kids are going to feel like going back to school in September? This is worse than 9/11 in terms of childhood trauma.

13 Deaths in a Day: An ‘Apocalyptic’ Coronavirus Surge at an N.Y.C. Hospital 3/25

Waiting to hear about people bemoaning how the experts didn't say anything until the hospitals were up to their eyebrows in coronavirus.

Coronavirus Live Updates: U.S. Now Has More Known Cases Than Any Other Country

As the House prepared to vote on a $2 trillion relief plan, unemployment data set a bleak record and hospitals struggled with an influx of sick patients and lack of equipment. 

RIGHT NOW At least 81,321 people in the U.S. are known to have been infected with the coronavirus, more cases than China, Italy or any other country has seen, according to data gathered by The New York Times. […]

USA Number 1!

Any moment now New York State will have more cases than any other country

In a matter of days New York City will have more cases than any country except America.

I wonder what it will take for free-market small-government libertarians to have a rethink about letting everything take its course without intervention.
We won't get the answer from Jay for a while as he and his family will be camping in the woods by now.

I occasionally check fox news to gauge right wing talking points and it's unbelievable how the narrative has been 'it's getting better! / we're beating corona!' since day 1. Is this just delusion or one more desperate attempt at trying to impose a preferred narrative on reality?

Case in point:

https://www.foxnews.com/media/dr-saphie … se-numbers

I mean what kind of quack doctor is this. Corona measures taken sunday already visible on monday/tuesday while we know incubation period is about two weeks? Lol. I wonder what sort of very encouraging signals they'll uncover when the dead start piling up.

Rome is burning.

People should form a board, ask friends and neighbours for seed funding, do some market research on how much the average person would pay annually for fire insurance, pitch a proposal to venture capitalists, issue RFQs to 3-5 fire truck companies for 50-100 fire trucks and tankers, start talking to some piping firms about installing a network of water pipes in the city, do a cost benefit comparison of carting water to the fires vs pumping it through pipes to a nearby location, formalise the proposal, set out a stock option and bonus plan for the executive and do a float on the NYSE.

We'll have the fires out in no time.

Wasn't Iraq getting better and better as the bodies piled higher and higher?

Still fucking incredible Trumps plan was to do nothing until a Fox News anchor persuaded him to wake up.

It's incredible that Trump is too stupid to realize or too lazy to implement whatever the American equivalent of war communism would be. He has the once in a century power to remodel the economy from the top down. Well maybe it is for the best that he doesn't know he has that power.

They finally opened up a drive in testing area in my hometown at the hospital the owners are trying to sell. You can't just drive up and ask for a test though. You need an referral from a doctor in that hospital chain's network. So if I thought I had it, I wouldn't be able to get a test easily. And because of our privatized medical system I am not even sure I could go to a hospital for treatment. Will they ask for my insurance card? Do I need to pay a co-pay? So many questions.

6 days ago for a virus that can go unnoticed for 14 days and the point is to slow it.

It is annoying that reddit is filled with usa #1 posts though

It's been two weeks now. The country is just full of morons with zero social responsibility. How many thousands of "new yorkers" fled their apartments and ran back home to mom and dad in Indiana or Texas, bringing this shit with them? Trying to control these people is pointless.

People are bashing Trump for not doing enough at first. What was he supposed to do? Put everyone flying in from China in quarantine? The media would've turned it into the border prison shit again. The ACLU would've whined about civil liberties being infringed upon. Right around the time people started testing positive in the US, the media spent two weeks obsessing over Kobe Bryant.

Doomed from the start.

With a 5-14 day incubation period it will take, guess what, 5-14 days to see any result.

Thats what every other country did.

OK Good luck with your 'do nothing' plan.

Our country in a practical sense can just print as much money as we need and countries will continue to buy our debt. How hard would it been for Trump to ask congress to fund the creation and distribution of medical equipment?

When China stops buying your worthless debt you'll know they've figured their army is big enough to vanquish you.

After this Bat Flu plague, I think many countries are going to look toward moving production away from China. It's a good idea too. All of these out of work service workers should instead be working on domestic manufacturing and construction.

I have dealt with depression since I was a child. But if I get sick I am going to fight like hell to live just to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has enlisted the Defence Force to help the states and territories ensure all arrivals from abroad will self-isolate in hotels and other accommodation for two weeks before they are able to return to their home.
About fucken time, the self-isolation thing was a farce. People are too stupid and selfish to be trusted, especially Americans.

There's talk about pulling manufacturing from China across the board.

Doctors And Nurses Say More People Are Dying Of COVID-19 In The US Than We Know 3/25
https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ni … -hospitals

Medical professionals around the US told BuzzFeed News that the official numbers of people who have died of COVID-19 are not consistent with the number of deaths they’re seeing on the front lines.

In some cases, it’s a lag in reporting, caused by delays and possible breakdowns in logging positive tests and making them public. In other, more troubling, cases, medical experts told BuzzFeed News they think it’s because people are not being tested before or after they die.

In the US, state and county authorities are responsible for collecting data on cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, and deaths. The data is then reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In California, one ER doctor who works at multiple hospitals in a hard-hit county told BuzzFeed News, “those medical records aren't being audited by anyone at the state and local level currently and some people aren’t even testing those people who are dead.”

“We just don't know. The numbers are grossly underreported. I know for a fact that we’ve had three deaths in one county where only one is listed on the website,” the doctor said.

translation: we are fucked, we have no safety net and aren't set up to afford it. making war, building missiles, spending trillions a year in afghanistan, no problem. bailing out banks, no problem. but this country is not equipped to look after its people when they need protection. we must go back to work!

meanwhile NYC is going to become an open-air morgue.



is trump leading a death-cult? America sacrificing its citizens for the economy. freeeeeeeeeedom!

Like how a bunch of wizards were trying to revive Dagoth in Conan 2? I suppose it's a possibility. Do you think the president is attempting to helm the reincarnation of Plutus the Divine Child? Or would it be Adephagia.

it's been the number one news story globally for over a month and jay still fundamentally doesn't understand how viruses work.

i mean you could read a précis that pops up on youtube or gmail when you open the app at this point and get a better understanding.

the numbers aren't going to drop within a week of adopting a lockdown because people who got infected weeks ago are still presenting at hospitals

you require 3-4 weeks of intensive care ventilation to recover from second-stage severe pneumonia.

'what the heck? we went into quarantine 6 days ago and the death rate is still climbing?!?'

but viruses can't be exponential, sensei!!!
