CCP added a bunch this morning because people died at home and weren’t counted until now.
 

I don’t believe their numbers at all. Add a few zeros... 

Ok, kind of like what happened in Italy and France, where at first neither country was reporting deaths in personal homes or geriatric facilities.

I'm curious as to where that "100% recovery rate" comes from. Everything I've read so far runs the gamut of "Doesn't work" to "needs more data":

Yeah, even when I've seen "favourable" references to using these drugs, nothing even close to that 100% has been used. This lady should not be an MP.

I wonder if those 20 people he used to round up all that toilet paper was promised some type of payment for helping him once he sold the goods.  If so, the real karma starts when those 20 people come knocking on his door.

4 doctors talk about the virus,

3 are medical doctors, one of them is leading expert Dr. Fauci

1 is a psychologist

Free speech comes with a price.

In the years to come I wonder if a university student will do a study/graduate paper on just how many needless deaths were caused by crackpot Tv doctors during this crisis.

Looks like she's trying to walk back her comments now. Using the old "out of context" dodge.....

An engineer before turning to politics.

I'd say not much of an engineer, given her willingness to skip the homework and just jump to a favourable, in her opinion, conclusion.

Look, I’m not an epidemiologist either, nor am I a “Dr.” I am, however, someone who can access the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and someone who understands that you can’t contract “drowning.”

Oh snap.

Surprised she didn't use the Doogie Howser defense "I'm not doctor....I just play one on TV".:lol:

About the China rebound, the crazy thing is that Wuhan itself raised the reported numbers by 50%

Man, I hate to blame it on how cavalier American and European citizens are toward this but it's true... after all this time and people still choose to ignore advisories, not wear face masks and gather in large groups (Florida spring break, Italian/ Spanish close proximity when greeting and continuing to go out, the Italian man who at the start spread the virus by fleeing his town to go north when he had it, and now this guy).  The face mask part in particular is up there in importance, since places like Taiwan have permitted people to continue gathering but everyone wears masks.  


Re: the hoarder, serves him right.  Hope no one ever buys any of it off of him.

And people wonder why an "all style & no subtance" Justin still won (that's WITH scandals).  Come on Scheer, don't follow Orange Man's playbook.

As much as Trudeau disappointed a lot of people heading into the election, I'm very glad we don't have the current CPC running things right now, they'd be in lock step with Team Trump.

Global News has reached out to Gladu for additional comment but her office says she “will not be commenting on this matter any further.”

 

My statement in an unedited four-minute clip was taken out of context but I'm not going to clarify what I actually met.

Then I'll follow it up with an absurb comparison that's factually baseless.

Are we really at the stage where we can ease off measures:

 

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/covid-19-bc-modelling-data-1.5535716

 

Our leadership has done a reasonable job thus far imo, I hope talk of easing measures isn't a result of political/social pressure.   If medical science says so then fine, but if it's other reasons.....well.....
