    Its the old fall back on blaming immigrants or people different that I am ploy. Been used throughout history to stoke fear and anger for political purposes. The problem is people have a tougher time identifying it through professional looking internet "news" sources.

    I've heard that this virus is much harder on men than women since when they lose work they lose a full $1.00 compared to women that only lose $.79. My thoughts and prayers go out to those losing that $1.00.

    There is indeed a quote from an old NYT article at the beginning that merely explains how the Chinese have been attempting to break into the Italian fashion industry since 2010. It seems to have been inserted to lend credibility to all of the theory that follows alleging that the Chinese practically inject Italians with COVID-19 because of their plan to take over the world.

    Other than that, it’s mostly fiction, stringing together a bunch of ideas that were gleaned off the internet, with no actual bona fide reporting of their own.

    It explains exactly why some people insist on calling the Wuhan virus, which even Breitbart and Fox News do not do.

    “Why Italy” is a false claim anyway. From the graph posted earlier, and from the figures reported by JHU, the U.S. is on exactly the same path. In fact, probably a worse path than Italy.

    @Joey_V I know you probably don't have time for this but if you know about or have any experience with Hanta virus and Swine flu fatalities can you briefly describe how they compare with Covid-19 fatalities?

    @Joey_V can you or anyone let me know if you answered this? I got swept away into another dimension shortly after I posted this and it's buried in twenty-plus pages since.

    I think I poked a substantial hole in that earlier.

    I don’t think so, @Gardenstater. It’s a valid point, but since the U.S. has been testing so little, Italy would have conducted 100,000 tests when the U.S. had conducted 500, therefore U.S. numbers remain vastly underrepresented compared with reality, and Italy.

    In the meantime, many in the U.S. would have died from supposed pneumonia, when they probably had COVID-19.

    Not being able to show the graph on a per 100,000 capita basis doesn’t mean the conclusions about the speed of spread are inaccurate.

  • KexKex Posts: 4,323
    It doesn’t disturb me in the slightest. Using it in this context reveals racism in its purest form.

    I read the article once. I won’t be reading it again. It’s the epitome of fake news from a conspiracy website posing as a news website.

    The numbers not being correctly put on a per capita basis was only one of my points. The other one was that Italy only tested its most severely sick patients.

    I have no confidence in any statistics. Correct me if I am wrong but I haven't seen any that are based on an unbiased scientific sampling. Until those infected that show "little or no symptoms" are included, I see no reason to consider the statistics.
