Just testing people with symptoms isn't enough. How many days does it take to progress that far?

How many people never show symptoms, but carry the virus?

Why Iceland’s approach to coronavirus testing may be better than America’s

Iceland is testing everyone possible, finding many asymptomatic cases, and seemingly maintaining control.

Nobody is returning to the gold standard.

Well ...it wasn't exactly a campaign promise.

What does it mean when Federal Reserve bonds are purchased by Treasury instead of the Reserve. I'm no expert.

I still wonder what that was I had in mid-January. It was early, but novel. Never had anything go in through the lacrimals before.

From your article:

Of course, Iceland’s minuscule population makes it far easier to test there than in most other countries—including even South Korea, where the swift control of the coronavirus among its 50 million people is credited in large part to the government’s aggressive testing and quarantine strategy.

South Korea's effort (linked in your article)

It means the Fed is adding liquidity to the market. They are buying treasuries from banks (not directly from the Treasury in daily auctions) to pump money into the market and keep banks from hording cash and freezing up the system.

They did the same thing in 2008 / 2009. In late 2008 banks had a lot of assets but needed cash. The problem was nobody wanted to give up cash to buy the assets. So the Fed stepped in and bought those assets which pumped much need cash (liquidity) into the markets. Then when the economy got better they started selling off those assets (treasures, bonds, mortgages, etc) that they bought during the financial crisis back into the open market.

The European and Japanese central banks do the same thing.

Xist — Don't know what you think about Alex Jones, but this is his theory:

Quote:
Alex Jones interviews an anonymous source about the numbers being reported about the Chinese Communist Party’s coronavirus.

The source, a research scientist, pointed out that America’s coronavirus cases are appearing to explode because of the sheer number of testing it’s been able to do thanks to President Trump’s response.

“If you look back at about March 1, you’re seeing about 1,000 tests performed per day in the United States,” the source said.

“Today, it’s right around 150,000-200,000 tests a day. And so, it’s no doubt that we have way more positives identified than any other country in the world is because we’ve actually done way more tests than anybody at this point.”

“One thing that Trump did…he stepped in and the FDA reduced those regulations, and it opened up testing.”

I'm curious about Hydrochloroquine trials, results should be available after 3-4 days. A story from 2018: High-yielding continuous-flow synthesis of antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine
https://www.beilstein-journals.org/bjoc/articles/14/45

Quote:
This high-yielding, multigram-scale continuous synthesis provides an opportunity to achieve increase global access to hydroxychloroquine for treatment of malaria.

Or not. One thing Trump actually did was congratulate West Virginia last week for keeping coronavirus out of their state.

Quote:
When asked if it’s an issue of a lack of reporting cases, the president elaborated. “I just see West Virginia is the only one that has no cases. So obviously that’s being treated differently than in New York or California.”
Testing. Yeah. There was a while when "presumed coronavirus" was a diagnosis being reported in the news because there were no tests. West Virginia wasn't even doing that:

How one woman fought to get her husband tested while her state was applauded for having no coronavirus
Quote:
Carolyn's journey is one story behind how and why West Virginia had no reported cases for so long.
Trump congratulated West Virginia because they weren't testing or even reporting presumed cases the day after I got sent home from work in New Hampshire. I knew it was just a cold, but my boss told me to check it out. I called the doctor's office and got told to call 211. Which told me to go see my doctor. So the 17th, the same morning Trump was congratulating WV for not testing anyone, I showed up at the doctor's clinic. It was the same runaround, except I was simply playing "react to coronavirus" because I was supposed to and was confident I didn't have it. I cheerfully went home and reported to work that I had been ordered to go home and self isolate. By the receptionist. Because we didn't have protocols or tests available here either.

That was just over a week ago. Did he wave his deregulatory wand and magically produce and distribute tests before "... I guess they have none. Still none? Still none, West Virginia. Big Jim the governor, he must be doing a good job,” or was it after that? Hopefully not before, that would mean you can't trust the words coming out of his mouth. If it was after, then maybe early on Monday the 17th he suddenly realized the magnitude of the situation and called the FDA, telling them to get more tests no matter what.

But I'll just go with the graph in the video Xist shared earlier that shows it's spreading here exactly as effectively as it has spread everywhere else.



I'll also guess that Alex Jones is full of $#*+. I feel dirty for even clicking on that link to see the date of that post.
