Clearly, I mean obviously, since the Orange Man is Bad he must be using the wrong response to the coronavirus epidemic. We need no other proof that that Trump is doing something to know that what he’s doing is wrong. We’d be drummed out of polite society if we didn’t internalise that truth now, wouldn’t we?
At which point we have this little chart in The Guardian:
Ooooh, scary, eh? Would you prefer the opening to Twilight Zone or the dum dum dum from Jaws as the soundtrack to this?
As they say:
Not only has the US suffered the most deaths worldwide, at more than 75,000 people so far,
Hmm, gosh. At which point we should note that the US also has rather more people in it than most other countries worldwide. At 320 million-ish it’s about 6 times, a little over, little under dependent upon comparison nation, the populations of Spain, Italy, France or the UK. That reported case rate is about 6 times any of those individual countries too.
What’s being shouted at us us is that larger countries, places with more population, will have more people succumbing to a pandemic.
Well, yes, and your point is?
