Cuomo is doing his daily report...why in the hell can't DeSatan do a rational report in Florida?

Governor C. is the best thing on daytime TV.

I am so tired of the TP45 suck-ups lying about everything while the numbers go up and up.

Went for a walk. Some neighbors having a pool part with half a dozen kids and equal number of adults. These people won't stay in unless there's an order to do so.

There is no state-wide order in Florida. Some counties have limited curfews and stay-at-home rules. Very confusing with every city and county doing their own thing. Some beaches still open!

Viral photo shows difference between open and closed Florida beaches Can you spot the county divide?


DUVAL COUNTY, Fla. — A photo of a county line in Florida is going viral.

It's not just any county line, it shows an empty beach where Duval County is and crowds of people on the beach where St. John's County starts.

Duval County closed its beaches to help limit to spread of COVID-19 and promote social distancing. St. John's County where the beaches will not close until 6 a.m. on Sunday.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has not ordered any statewide regulations for the beaches. It has been up to individual counties to decide that happens along their shorelines.

In the Tampa Bay area, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Manatee and Sarasota counties all closed their beaches to the public.

OMG...Dr. DeSantis is giving out meds to cure the virus...

...on TV now pushing self-admin of whatever you want.

Video shows phones at a Florida beach during spring break, and where they all traveled during the coronavirus outbreak

A new “heat map” using cellphone location data shows the terrifying consequences of Florida’s beaches remaining open during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

As you can see in the video, cellphones on a single beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, during spring break were selected and tracked, and then seen sprawling all over the Eastern half of the country, potentially spreading the virus even further.

The video was created to show human movement during the coronavirus pandemic and uses data collected by a location technology company called X-Mode, which was then put into the Tectonix data visualization platform.

Burr Recording Sparks Questions About Private Comments On COVID-19


A secret recording taken of Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr shows him warning a private audience three weeks ago about how the Coronavirus would have dire effects on the U.S.

Audio at link. On NPR this morning. Apparently, the "insiders" knew a lot more than they were saying weeks ago.

Special Report: How Korea trounced U.S. in race to test people for coronavirus


One of the country’s top infectious disease officials delivered an urgent message: South Korea needed an effective test immediately to detect the novel coronavirus, then running rampant in China. He promised the companies swift regulatory approval.

Though there were only four known cases in South Korea at that point, “we were very nervous. We believed that it could develop into a pandemic,” one attendee, Lee Sang-won, an infectious diseases expert at the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told Reuters.

A week after the Jan. 27 meeting, South Korea’s CDC approved one company’s diagnostic test. Another company soon followed. By the end of February, South Korea was making headlines around the world for its drive-through screening centers and ability to test thousands of people daily.

South Korea’s swift action stands in stark contrast to what has transpired in the United States. Seven weeks after the train station meeting, the Koreans have tested well over 290,000 people and identified over 8,000 infections. New cases are falling off: Ninety-three were reported Wednesday, down from a daily peak of 909 two weeks earlier.

Really detailed report at the link.

Not sure where this originated, because I saw it on FB...but interesting compliation:

Quotes from TP45

January 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”
February 2: “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China.”
February 24: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”
February 25: “CDC and my Administration are doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus.”
February 25: “I think that's a problem that’s going to go away… They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”
February 26: “The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”
February 26: “We're going very substantially down, not up.”
February 27: “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”
February 28: “We're ordering a lot of supplies. We're ordering a lot of, uh, elements that frankly we wouldn't be ordering unless it was something like this. But we're ordering a lot of different elements of medical.”
March 2: “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don't think that could have an impact, or much of an impact, on corona?”
March 2: “A lot of things are happening, a lot of very exciting things are happening and they’re happening very rapidly.”
March 4: “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work — some of them go to work, but they get better.”
March 5: “I NEVER said people that are feeling sick should go to work.”
March 5: “The United States… has, as of now, only 129 cases… and 11 deaths. We are working very hard to keep these numbers as low as possible!”
March 6: “I think we’re doing a really good job in this country at keeping it down… a tremendous job at keeping it down.”
March 6: “Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re there. And the tests are beautiful…. the tests are all perfect like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. Right? This was not as perfect as that but pretty good.”
March 6: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”
March 6: “I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn't our fault.”
March 8: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus.”
March 9: “This blindsided the world.”

Finally...we'll see what happens...
