That's 2 days in a row I have to scratch my head and wonder what planet you are on. China is good and Cuomo has done a great job managing the corona virus. What in the world are you listening to? Can anyone guess how many people have died since this started because China is good and Cuomo has done a great job?

Look at the quoted exaggerated or totally out of reality articles on the Media that the above poster was kind enough to provide, it shows the totally slanted leftist view of the media portrayals of Doom and Gloom!!
Our Governor did the right moves while bothers did not, if I recall, Trump sent a Hospital ship completely loaded to New York and Cuomo decided to send Covid 19 patients to Nursing Homes and the Ship remained empty, it was a bad decision, but politicians do not admit failure only promise hope which they never deliver!!!!!!!!

I was wondering the same thing. It just goes to show how the media is brainwashing the public.

I think it’s a typo. Should be “polls”.
People just don’t proof read anymore.

Did Governor Desantis do a good job handling the virus??? I think he did up till he decided it was time to reopen. I think he is moving a little to fast and it may come back to bite him and us. Everyday I get a news article which states the number of new cases and deaths. The numbers are still increasing every day. They are not increasing as bad as they did several weeks ago but they are increasing. I hope we have made the right decision about opening because if the governor was wrong and the numbers start to spike the next closings and lock down will be much harder than the one we just went through. Believe me as a former owner of a small business that employed 10 people I get what being closed does to a small business. I am all for trying to open but it should be slower than the pace we are at now until the number of cases and deaths are not going up as they are now.

"Could be", "Might be", "Possible", "Heard"

All the lines media love to use with nothing to back it up. They love to create fear.

...what would you have predicted about Florida? If I had to pick One state I thought would get slammed by this it would be Florida. The potential to have been devastating Had to be the highest in the country.

the actual percentage of deaths In this state is 85% are over the age of 65.

I don’t know why we were spared, but predictions about Florida made sense to me.

Whatever you hear or read in the media....Take it with a grain of salt.
When you hear what they are saying …..listen to what they are NOT saying.

And while they sensationalize everything, they want you to be GLUED to the television.
Why?? It's so they can make $$$$ from their advertisers.
They always want to be FIRST to report something new. And in doing so, they almost get some fact wrong, totally destroying the integrity of the report. As a previous poster said, Nobody proof reads anymore.

While the Covid-19 situation IS serious, I think that the government's response was a knee jerk reaction and they for the most part, over-reacted.

Common sense and personal cleanliness is all the protection you need.

I know I have been singing a minority song Covid-19 started. Being an old dude, I remember 1968, even though I spent the year in Viet Nam.

Over 100,000 Americans and over one million worldwide, died from the Hong Kong flu. Like corona virus, it was a horrible thing and people died. We did what we could to stay safe and went on with our lives. Six months later we had 400,000 in the filth of Woodstock, with no ill effects.

I'm not minimizing, at all, the tragedy of death! I am lamenting that we became a socialistic, and in many ways cowardly country! We have already spent TRILLIONS of our kids dollars and destroyed this country's economy with a needless "lock-down" that will take MORE than a generation to recover. The bankruptcies and deaths caused by the lock down will dwarf the benefits.

A TINY example of the side effects: EVERY month 150,000 plus Americans get diagnosed with a form of cancer. We are at the point of medical expertise that early diagnosis of most cancers result in remission success and those folks can lead a full life. For the last two months virtually NO Americans were lucky enough to get that early diagnosis because of individual fear of going outside to the doctors or simply because hospitals, clinics etc. were closed for all but emergencies and corona virus treatment.

I guess you mean me.

I think The governors of New York and Ohio and Florida all did a good job with the situation they had at hand.. They all shut things down immediately. I think in NYC the Virus had already exposed many, many, people even before people were aware of it. Governor Cuomo did shut it down. Shut the Subways down. Told people to stay inside. Shut the Airlines down right away and sadly more than 20,000 people died anyway. I don't know what he was thinking when he sent convalescing Covid-19 people to Convalescent centers with older people. That was a bad call, we all know now. DeWine and DeSantis shut it all down right away, shut the airlines down, etc. etc. etc. DeSantis didn't shut the Churches down and that could have been a disaster but it wasn't.

I personally don't believe that the virus was manufactured to be a get back at Trump. I don't think it was an on purpose event. Scientists can trace origins of mutations. But for one country to deliberately infect the whole world is very hard to believe, unless we throw everyone into the bad and good qualifications of politics.

I could be wrong. It would not be the first time. I am NOT a medically trained person. I was a preschool teacher with education in child development and psychology. I am not a medical person. My views on education have changed over the years and I don't place as much trust as I did when I was young in behavioral psychology. I am leaning toward thinking that a lot of our personality traits are genetic. I can think whatever I want to. I am Free, Republican and eighty years old. But I am not an Extreme Republican. I don't like extreme political views on either side. You can disagree with me.

I just think that GoodLife is incorrect at times just like anyone else. Like me. And possibly you too Bmit. Does MIT in your name stand for Massachusetts Institute of Technology? If so, WOW.

Probably the only point I would disagree with, is the, 'we are spending trillions of our kids dollars.'
Our kids are now running the world, and spending their own dollars.
Our generation is the one that picked up, and stood the world back on its feet after WW2.
We worked and spent our dollars giving them the great lifestyle they are enjoying now.
No guilt trip here!
