    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.

    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.

    I see that EXACT image every time I happen to see Rachael Maddow.

    Come to think about it, I've seen quite a few others the past 3 1/2 or 4 years doing the exact same thing. :s
