Better News from Italy but overall it is bad news for one country 

Coronavirus Growth in Western Countries: March 24 Update

Here’s the coronavirus growth rate through Tuesday. There are no big changes since yesterday aside from a sudden flattening of the growth curve in Switzerland. We’ll see if that holds for the rest of the week. Here’s the curve for Italy that I posted yesterday, updated by a day:


This has a significantly lower peak than yesterday. It still suggests an endpoint in early May, but the total death toll now pencils out to about 22,000, or 0.036 percent of Italy’s total population. Here’s another version of the curve that uses cumulative deaths and therefore has much less noise. It shows the same thing:


If this holds up, it shows just how effective strict control measures can be. The hard part is going to be keeping them in place all the way through the end of April even as the death rate plummets. People are going to get very itchy about staying at home all the time when it seems like the news is so positive, but it has to be done all the way down to zero.

Doctors threaten to quit NHS over shortage of protective kit 

A massive NHS recruitment drive to help contain the coronavirus pandemic risks being undermined by the prospect of doctors quitting over fears of inadequate protective equipment, groups representing frontline staff say.
The health secretary, Matt Hancock, said on Tuesday that 11,788 retired NHS staff had agreed to come back to work to help tackle the crisis – and announced the creation of a new 250,000-strong corps of “NHS Volunteer Responders”, who would be asked to take essential supplies to the most vulnerable people being “shielded” at home.
But as the crisis reaches what is expected to be its most dangerous period, doctors’ and nurses’ groups say their members are being expected to take unacceptable risks.

Trump Cabinet Bible Teacher Blames Coronavirus Pandemic on God’s Wrath — Somehow It Involves China, Gay People, and Environmentalists

Ralph Drollinger, a minister who leads a weekly Bible study group for President Donald Trump’s cabinet, released a new interpretation of the coronavirus pandemic this week, arguing that the crisis represents an act of God’s judgment.
The coronavirus, Drollinger argues in two blog posts and a rambling Bible study guide published in the past few days, is a form of God’s wrath upon nations, but not one as severe as the floods described in the Old Testament or the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
“Relative to the coronavirus pandemic crisis, this is not God’s abandonment wrath nor His cataclysmic wrath, rather it is sowing and reaping wrath,” wrote Drollinger. “A biblically astute evaluation of the situation strongly suggests that America and other countries of the world are reaping what China has sown due to their leaders’ recklessness and lack of candor and transparency.”

Doone That's the thing with Borass he's not stupid like Scump, but that's what makes his actions even more heinous.

Coronavirus: Jerry Falwell Jr tells hundreds of students to return to his university despite the outbreak
Hundreds of students are expected to return to campus from spring break after Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr announced that college dormitories will begin housing up to 5,000 students this week, despite a growing coronavirus pandemic.
On Monday, more than 1,100 students returned to the private Evangelical Christian university in Lynchburg, Virginia, the same day that the state's governor announced that all K-12 schools will remain closed at least through the academic year. He also ordered the closure of all non-essential businesses.

From TPM about the idiot group mind of conservatives.

I grew up in the oil patch, so this email from TPM Reader DB resonated:

I wanted to write in with a different perspective than the one I’m seeing take hold among progressives. I work in oil and gas (yes; yes; I know. I’m sorry) and, as such, I interact with conservatives all the time. It’s interesting watching the conservative id coalesce as it does.

Initially, they have some diversity of opinion as new facts come to light and then they all eventually fall in line behind the command and control structure that is the conservative mind meld.

In the beginning, I saw a lot of what I think most people assumed was mainline conservative thinking: that the virus wasn’t a big deal; that it was just another H1N1 and we should just ignore it.

But, there was a second group that more closely aligned with this new Trump/Dan Patrick thinking. The comments I heard went something like this, “This is going to sound bad, but 2% really isn’t that many people and it’s mostly old people anyway. They’ve lived a good life. Overpopulation is a major problem and it will also help with social security.”

I’m writing in because I fear we are treating this as a more fringe idea than it actually is. I don’t think this is Trump reacting to his properties being forced to close or to a Fox News segment he saw. I think this has serious legs. …

It’s part Ebeenezer Scrooge morality; part inability/unwillingness to comprehend the scope of horror coronavirus is capable of inflicting on us. Of course, implicit in their thinking is that it won’t affect them.

We must be clear-eyed about what we’re up against. These people absolutely do not give a shit if 2.2 million people die. And they lack the imagination to understand what exceeding our hospital bed capacity by 30X looks like.

I really don’t think this is Trump sending out a trial balloon by himself. This is mainline Republican thinking and we should act accordingly.

More about Scump from Kevin Drum.  He won't be happy until all of North America is wrecked.

If we don’t put control measures in place, lots of people will die and the epidemic will last longer. That’s bad on its own, but it also introduces terrific uncertainty. The huge number of deaths will depress the economy for a while and those workers will only be slowly replaced. People will remain afraid to spend money until they’re sure the epidemic is over, and that’s going to be a very dicey thing. This would fundamentally be like a normal recession, in which we take a dive and then come back out of it slowly as businesses and consumers haltingly regain confidence.

The crazy thing about this is that the first scenario is almost certainly better not just from a humanitarian point of view, but also from a political point of view. Trump could be a hero and the economy would be in strong shape by November. In the second scenario, fear and recession remain in place for months, only slowly dissipating. Trump would be doomed on Election Day. How does he not get that?
