Donald Trump raises expected deaths up to 240,000 +++ Covid-19 in Afghanistan | Coronavirus Update



US President Trump has told Americans to prepare for “a very painful two weeks”. He was speaking as the country’s death toll from the coronavirus surpassed 4,000 – greater than China’s official tally. President Trump said as many as 240-thousand people in the US could die, even if current social distancing measures were maintained.
Afghanistan has recorded nearly 200 coronavirus cases and four deaths. Authorities there are taking steps to halt the spread of infection. But after years of war, the health system is weak and would be overwhelmed if the number of cases grows as it has in other countries. The country’s problems are exacerbated by the return of thousands of people from Iran – one of the countries worst by Covid-19.
Some more of the latest developments in this pandemic:
– China has reported for the first time on numbers of asymptomatic cases. It says 13-hundred people have tested positive, despite showing no symptoms.
– The captain of a US aircraft carrier is calling for urgent help to quarantine his crew of 4,000. The Theodore Roosevelt is docked in Guam in the Pacific, with the disease spreading rapidly onboard.
– A 12-year-old girl has died in Belgium – she’s thought to be Europe’s youngest victim so far.
– Tuesday saw France, the UK and Spain record their highest daily death tolls so far.

    Still too many people have died and they just don't care about that. Just think about it they came from wherever and the state park like Taylors Falls was jammed you never know which and who is carrying the virus just gotta be more careful or don't go to the state park.

    Guys, this is not a virus. There is no virus, you might’ve heard that soon a lot of people will die of the corona virus, but that’s not true. I believe Trump is starting a war, if you or whoever is in your household gets a cold or feels mucus in their system, what ever you do don’t go to the hospital. They’ll give you a shot, saying that it has something to do with covid-19 but the shot will actually kill you and you will not be able to get out of the hospital. Avoid wearing earphones/headphones because of the electricity that can kill you as well. The only solution is to stay home.

    The World is realising more than ever the need for UE (United
    Earth) an international government similar to UN. USA, China, Russia, Germany
    and UK have been preventing this great human need for many years to stop
    sharing the wealth and power in the world.

    A small coronavirus triggered the need for this idea again. We
    can’t ignore other nations any longer. While these few governments trying hard
    to prevent the future UE and the virus pushing people apart, the nations are
    coming closer to each other, realising they are all one family.

    The only way to save this world from self-destruction by wars,
    injustice, pollution, greed, hatred and diseases is to allow the formation of
    UE to control humanity for the benefit of all nations.

    Where are they getting these numbers? I think it's way worse than that! but I can't see how the heck they are projecting these numbers of deaths? Grrrrr They just throw out these numbers and expect us to believe it. Where is the math?

    This is actually FANTASTIC news! If you calculate the CFR based on the population of the U.S. of 327 Million it is very low, 200,00 dead would be like a 0.06% fatality rate! Then how do they keep coming at us with a much higher number? The answer is simple really, they do not count asymptomatic people who have or had the virus AND they consider any death whether caused by the virus or not to be the fault of the virus. Even if the patient was on their death bed with a terminal disease, if they tested positive for corona virus then that is what they died from. By using only known cases as the basis for the CFR the numbers are going to be wrong and the fatality rate will appear artificially high. This is only exacerbated by the fact that in the US we only test people who appear to be sick, not those who may have had it and got over without difficulty. Until more tests have been performed we will never have truly accurate numbers and everything we hear is simply conjecture. Not surprisingly a study in South Korea came up with the same CFR, 0.06%, I have to wonder if they did not just take that number and multiply it by the U.S. population to come up with this.

    240,000 deaths in what time frame? this year, or in total? because 57 million people die every year, and if it's 240,000 deaths in total, i don't think that warrants bankrupting the entire world's economy and causing 10s of millions of people to lose their homes.

    Could this be a government strategy. Now all the world is focusing on USA and most local news only give reports of United States. What about the reports of all over the world.

    China ordered, from Taiwan, 200,000 bodybags, a clue. The current death toll in China is nearing 200,000 dead. If that is not true then why does China need so many bodybags?
