Fauci’s prediction presupposes that none of the therapies or potential cures being worked on by some of the top scientists here and the around the world come to fruition. There can’t be a vaccine until next year, but any or all of the therapies could potentially make this virus no worse than having a strep throat. Before antibiotics, people died of strep. Now, now one bats an eyelash at it. Please God, the same will be true of this virus.

Susan L Rosenbluth Fauci just elaborated on his prediction, making it clear that it presupposed insufficient mitigation techniques (constant hand-washing, social-distancing, etc) and no scientific consensus on a therapeutic treatment. With those in place, he expects the numbers to decrease. 3 hours 8 minutes ago

Rich Knoch Spot On!  Our Medical folks will get on top of this soon . . . hopefully.The biggest fear of expanding the number of folks who contract the Chinese Virus is folks who don't follow CDC guideline and moving from highly contaminated areas (NYC, and NY (for instance) to areas where there is little Chinese Virus. 2 hours 42 minutes ago

Is it possible these governors want all patients who need this medication to go to hospitals and receive it there? Is it possible they want patients to call their physicians and have the physicians direct the patients to the hospitals where the physicians will order this drug for them? This is the only justification I can see that makes any sense. If, on the other hand, these governors are simply forbidding these patients from receiving perfectly legal drugs their doctors want to prescribe for them, it’s time to move to another state, one where governors don’t play doctor—fast!

It sounds as though the governor is afraid to grant Trump another victory. Not only is our wartime President doing everything right, with the right team behind him, to fight this virus, but he is encouraging the best and brightest minds to find what they can for, first, a treatment and then a vaccine. It sounds as though Gov Sisolak isn't afraid the new drug "*o**tail" will hurt patients. He's afraid it will help them and that Trump will get at least some of the credit--and that would spoil the Democrats' narrative that he is, at best, a clown and, at worst, a ***d*rer. In fact, he is one of our best Presidents ever. His style may not be to everyone's liking, but his actions are terrific.

Hydroxychloroquine is a legal drug that physicians can prescribe if and when the individual doctor believes it will help his or her patient. This is a medical decision, not a political or legal one. If the patient signs a waiver, showing he or she understands that the drug is experimental, and the physician believes the drug may, in fact, help the patient, there is no reason not to prescribe the drug. I suspect this ruling will prompt many Nevada patients to leave the state to receive medical assistance elsewhere. I wouldn’t want to live in a state in which the governor rather than my own physician was making medical decisions.

If President Trump discovered the cure for cancer, his critics would call him a m*r***er. They'd be screaming that cancer cells have a right to life. If he tells the public to continue all the guidelines the CDC has recommended, but, in addition, suggests there is reason for well-informed optimism, they call him a fool. May we always have such "fools" in the White House, and may we always have such leadership.

I still say anyone actively encouraging Joe Biden to continue his Presidential campaign is guilty of elder-abuse. It is painful to watch, and those responsible should stop.

When he was President, Bill Clinton became known in a large segment of the Orthodox-Jewish community for doing (“virtually”) to two other young Jewish girls what he did physically to Monica Lewinsky. In 1988, Theodora Cohen, may her memory be for a blessing, was on Pan Am 103 returning from a semester abroad in the UK. For years, her parents tried to go after Libya for its part in the bombing, but the Clinton administration wouldn’t lift a finger. Then there was Aliza Flatow, may her memory be for a blessing, a young girl who, in 1995, was spending the year in Israel when her bus was attacked by Islamic Jihad terrorists financed by Iran. In 1998, her father, Steve Flatow, sued Iran in court in the US and proved his case such that he was awarded $250 million, which, when Iran refused to honor the court order, was supposed to be given to him from Iranian frozen assets in the US. The Clinton administration fought him every step of the way, refusing (just like Iran) to follow the court’s orders. Mr. Flatow finally did get about 10 percent of what he was due. Now compare these two young women and their families with Ms. Lewinsky, who, it is obvious, has not learned a thing in 25 years. This episode of her de***cable tweets, hoping, in a disgusting way, that members of the First Family should fall ill, shows she is still the same selfish, immature, immoral young woman who welcomed obscene attention from a man old enough to be her father simply because he commanded power. I used to wonder if her life would have been different if, when she made it clear she was open to then-President Clinton’s ***ua* advances, he had said to her something like, “You don’t have to do this. This is wrong.” Now, I know it wouldn’t have mattered. Vile and disgraceful she was then, and vile and disgraceful she remains. I, for one, will never mention her name in the same sentence along with Theodora Cohen or Aliza Flatow.

Loraine C K Thornton OK. you are kind of batshit crazy aren't you? Never did she say that she was hoping for the trumps to get ill. Nothing even close can be assumed from her tweet.  I have no idea what ridiculous rabbit you've gone down but take your meds and calm the F down! 7 days ago

I can't help thinking he represents the kind of people who wind up on MSNBC. Sorry.

I understand that people like Wilson don’t believe in a Creator whose laws would forbid the utterance of such a terrible remark, but they also, obviously, put no stock in Karma either, the theory that what happens to such a person takes place because he caused it with his own words and actions.

Rather than just roll your eyes in dismay at Ms. Teigen’s offensive smear, you can call Target at 612-304-6073 and register your complaint. I intend to do this first thing in the morning. I will tell them that knowing what I do now, I will have a very hard time entering a Target store or going to their website, because instead of looking at their merchandise, I will be thinking about what Ms. Teigan, as a representative of their store, said. She has a right to free speech, which means she cannot be locked up for her words, but I have a right to shop where I choose and if Target wants to keep me as a customer, the store has a right to separate itself from people like Ms. Teigan who reflect badly on it.

greenery Q ALL MUST CALL TARGET TO GET RID OF THIS MENTALLY SICK MONGREL NOW. Target as a business is after all about their bottomline. Her foul talk has no room in the business world. Imagine? businesses being represented by this kind of nasty woman? for sure will be out of business soon. She can talk all she wants is her rights, but the consequences of her disgusting talks defaming people she dislikes, while trying to sell her products is not a winning strategy for target profits, but a vast liability. 1 week ago

What did anyone expect the response would be when police department officials, such as Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, announce that, in an attempt to limit the spread of the coronavirus (?), they will not arrest anyone who tries or actually succeeds in stealing cars as well as committing other thefts and drug offenses? What did anyone expect when social media platforms permit demands for citizens to help others loot stores? The first instinct when the veneer of civilization in the form of law and order is threatened is to do whatever is necessary to protect yourself and your family. This is the time for government officials to reassure the community that we will be protected, not to transmit the message that we are all on our own.

I understand that testing is important for statistical issues of public health, but testing has nothing to do with treatment for the coronavirus. Those who are sick and who have not been or cannot be tested (because of a lack of kits) will be treated with the best supportive care available whether or not it can be proven that they are positive. The hysteria over lack of testing is uncalled for in terms of medical treatment for those affected.

Nothing President Trump has said has contradicted what his designated experts have told the public to do. The President is not minimizing the fact that a contagious virus is circulating around the world and that people should do what the experts advise to minimize the virus’s effect. However, panicking the public with dire doom-and-gloom warnings would be spreading misinformation. What we know now is that 80 percent of the people who contract the virus experience no or very mild symptoms. Those who become sick need care, and the vast majority of them seem to recover. The highly touted—and important—flu vaccines prevent the disease in 40-60 percent of the population. Those who get the flu are in as much danger as those who contract COVID-19. That’s all the President said, and I have heard no one contradict him on that. The same precautions the experts are advising for COVID-19 are just as useful to prevent catching the flu—or the common cold, for that matter, which can also lead to pneumonia and death in those with preconditions and/or compromised immune issues.

Barbara Root Thank you for bringing some sanity to all of the hysteria. Tucker should be ashamed. 3 weeks ago

The way this could play out to Trump’s benefit is if, please Heaven, there is a vacancy on the Supreme Court. I don’t wish for anyone’s death. Let’s just say it would be awfully nice if, for any reason, one of the liberal ladies decides it would be a good idea to spend more time at home with her family. Then, President Trump could nominate Mike Pence for that Supreme Court seat. I can’t imagine he’d have any trouble being confirmed by this Senate. He would enjoy a risk-free life-time appointment in which he could be amazingly effective for the values and legal judgments in which he believes. In Ms. Haley, President Trump and his supporters would get a powerful and brilliant Vice-President who would be beautifully positioned for the top spot in 2024.
