DeBlasio on MSNBC... Did he REALLY SAY THIS?

DeBlasio's likely mission on MSNBC was to quell a panic regarding the coronavirus. But he may have done worse.

DeBlasio was describing the INFECTION rate among demographics and said that young people, i.e. school students, were safe from the virus because their infection rate is substantially low. His remark should have been challenged, but IT WASN'T.

DeBlasio is ONLY looking at the infection rate among age groups, and that's outrageously irresponsible. DeBlasio does NOT mention transmissibility, which is of major importance, because even if children do not show symptoms, they CARRY THE VIRUS and can easily spread it among the population, thus infecting those in older age brackets who have higher infection and mortality rates.

What's wrong with DeBlasio??? Doesn't he understand basic information about the virus, or is he placating his constituents without regard to the inevitable spread of the disease by nonsymptomatic children?

6. The latest results as of this morning.

Itís the bodyís response to the virus that is so deadly. For some reason, children arenít exhibiting the same extreme response older adults are exhibiting. They are hopeful this may lead to better treatment outcomes if they can figure out exactly what is happening.

3. I didn't realize so many physicians went into politics.

Trump, Pence, and now--De Blasio.

5. I hope Yang defeats him

 

DeLousy-o fucking sucks.

Apparently kids don't get sick from COVID, but they carry and spread it.
