Not to mention the hundreds of underlings like attendants and nurses and caregivers, heroes too.
They didn't hesitate to live away from their families for months to avoid any chance of infection. And many passed away, alone.
Are you implying that this hasn't or is happening in the U.S.? Because I can tell you it has and is. Your country might be way over there, but the common denominator shared among everyone world-wide with this plague are that all countries are doing their part to try and fight it the best way they know how and I'm sure the first responder and medical personal stories are all one in the same no matter what country.
My mom works for a nursing home so I know first hand the nightmare it is and all the stories. Heck, the media was at this nursing home and so was the National Guard.

Not to mention of an entire nation, I repeat all (about 60 million inhabitants) locked in their homes for months, all of them have contributed to slowing down this plague at least in Europe. We are talking today about
contagions a day compared to your
, and only now does
realize that the mask is important? It's made your country the object of ridicule to the whole world, you should get over it.
I'm not too sure what Trump's position was on wearing a mask. I do know in a recent interview he did he indicated he was upset at Dr. Fauci's initial claim that masks weren't needed. And he's been at odds with Dr. Fauci as of late.
I remember back in February or even back in January the media and the government IQ wonders were all saying on a day by day basis masks were not needed and that a mask won't stop the virus from getting inside you. I kept shaking my head and yelling at the TV as I often as I do when I take objection to utter crap I see or hear about things. So for me at least, way back in January or February I was wearing a mask in the store at the risk of looking like an idiot where no one else was even wearing a mask. My friendly store stocker that I often talk to asked if I was sick or something and I had to explain that due to this virus which at the time I don't think was declared a pandemic by the WHO, that I wasn't taking any chances and so I'm wearing a mask. To this very day I wear my mask. And not just one, but two one over the other. I'd like to get my hands on some N95 masks but that's like trying to find gold in a salt mine. And even if you do come across them say on Amazon, it looks like they only sell to first responders. On eBay it's a greed fest of biblical proportions.
Now I'm quite aware that depending on the mask it won't stop a virus so small you need an electron microscope to see. But I look at it from two points: One, if masks (remember I wear two) can help stop most of it from any nasty infected aerosol I may come into contact with, then I'll take the what little protection it offers versus that of not even wearing a mask and coming into contact with a cloud of nasty aerosol of someone's cough or sneeze in the store. And two, and this is a big one. A mask is going to stop most nasty infected aerosol output from one's breath, cough or sneeze and therein lies the key to help prevent the spread of this highly contagious virus. Now I'm not a doctor or even a Med student, but I knew this from the jump and it was why I kept yelling at the TV and was frustrated at the asinine BS I kept hearing about how you don't need to wear a mask when in fact the government should have been promoting it from day one. And this is just one reason why I think the government can't do a damn thing right to save their sorry ass. And there are so many damn examples of incompetency it's nauseating.
Now the reason why the infected numbers are going up is that in my opinion people have become complacent. Proof of this is when I see people not even wearing a mask even though this town has an ordinance that you MUST wear one in public and the state orders its use as well. These people piss me off with their nonchalant attitude. Then you have people that take it to the absolute extreme where it seems like they let the media climb up inside their rectum. As an example, I see people wearing a mask in their own damn car. This is entirely not needed at all from a simple common sense stand point. As another example, I saw a woman walking her dog in the open, UV saturated, hot air that was the park wearing a mask and medical gloves. Never mind the fact gloves can be an issue for various reasons depending on what you're doing, but wearing gloves just walking a dog?! I guess she felt in her own little warped media controlled mind Captain Trips was going to somehow infect her hands by virtue of the air. Then she exemplified the fact she was low IQ as she was walking the dog because the poor dog wanted to pee and as it stopped she just kept on walking and the poor dog was drug along not even being able to get a small piss break. Now when most people walk a damn dog they know the dog is going to lift its leg here and there, but this woman was just in her own little world and never cared for the needs of the dog she had on a leash. So right there and then between that, the gloves and mask, I knew I was in the midst of a two time Obozo voter.
Meanwhile, California is over 400,000 cases of coronavirus and is preparing to overtake New York, the epicenter state of the epidemic in the United States, in terms of contagion. To be exact, California has 400,769 cases. New York has 408,000.
Now who's fault is this or can we even lay blame for high density municipalities where the infected are going to be very high? Do we blame the mayor, or the governor? It is their state after all? No? Lay all blame on Trump? Never mind the fact that ass hat in NY put infected people into the vulnerable populations that are nursing homes when he had a massive hospital ship nearby that was barely even used. As a result, the higher cases of those that perished came from NY nursing homes. The man is extremely incompetent and should be booted out of office.
And this sentence doesn't even make any sense.
Meanwhile, California is over 400,000 cases of coronavirus...
It should say, Meanwhile, California has
over 400,000 cases... I'm not even an English major, reporter or journalist FFS.
While the governor of New York Andrew Cuomo has added ten more states to the list of those that already had 14 days of isolation. Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia and Washington were added to the list, bringing the total to 31.
Now this is complete nonsensical horse crap from a stable called stupidity. North Dakota? NORTH DAKOTA?! Lets pull a quick Google search. Looks like the total cases of COVID-19 in North Dakota is a little north of 5,000. Now I ain't so good with them numbers
, but it seems to me a state like North Dakota is small fry crap.
Now according to this
, my state of Colorado with over 40,000 of COVID-19 cases isn't even on the mandated 14 day isolation list upon entry to the great liberal state of New York. Yet farmers from North Dakota who only have a little over 5,000 cases are? The hell is that? Did you catch where I said Cuomo needs to be out on his ass and not be a governor? The sheer lack of leadership, common sense and logic is astounding.
And here's another piss poor written sentence.
While the governor of New York Andrew Cuomo has added...
It should say, While the governor of New York,
Andrew Cuomo... Notice the freaking comma?
Anyways, I picked apart your news piece and I think you get the idea.

But do me a favor, forget about your useless propaganda. And show some respect.
First of all, I only do favors for those that pay me. Second of all, if you want my respect you need to earn it. You already called me out on a number of occasions when I never did such thing. Then you blow hot air my way by saying I'm posting propaganda as if I'm not allowed to voice my opinion and share what I know to be factual. It's only propaganda to you if it doesn't pass your uncalibrated news worthiness test based on what you read or hear.

Fly free with your flight simulator. Stay safe, don't stall.
To be blunt. This sentence right here tells me all I need to know about how myopic you truly are and judgmental by not even knowing who's on the other side of your WAN port. Let me explain. Based on some 14 years Sim experience using real-world procedures both in VFR and IFR (mostly IFR) flight, knowing what damn near every single cotton picking knob, lever and switch does and how to operate them based on a checklist, then knowing how to program and use a FMC and to fly with SID and STARs for a 737 NG, and knowing how to read approach plates. I'm willing to bet some serious coin in Vegas on two bets. 1) You have no idea how to even start a 737 NG let along know how to intercept a VOR radial if you even knew how to program that in the FMC. 2) I can more than likely prove to you that I can start, take off, do a circuit and then land a 737 NG in a full fledged simulator offered by a company in Las Vegas to the tune of $1000/hour. If 19 bastard hijackers can fly planes into some building, I'm telling you right now I can fly a 737 NG or a standard issue Cessna 172 based on everything I have learned thus far for some 14 years of Sim flying on an average of one hour per day. I have in fact been around the world at least five times and touched all seven continents. I have also been to damn near ever country up to and including no mans land Mongolia. And as habit, where ever I fly I check it out in Google Street View. Your little smart ass comment means nothing to me. I may sound bold, but I do in fact have an above average understanding of procedures and the avionics in a 737 NG that I used to fly all over hell with. I did it every day so that it would be like riding a bike. It was a personal challenge to me. Even so, there are things I still don't know. Like getting down to the nitty gritty of flight performance based on runway length and whether it's wet or not, etc.
In addition to all that, I use a CAD-like program to upgrade and create airports for the Sim. I must have at least 30 of them floating all over the Internet thus far. I even had a long running project where I built the famed Area-51. I had Janet aircraft fly in and out according to their real-life schedules. I had a Beechcraft 1900C fly in and out of Area-51 and go to Nut Tree, Californiastan. I also had damn near all black project aircraft there as well. Yes, this included the U2, A-12, etc. I had a drone there and a stand issue gray UFO for kicks. ATC there consisted of Kelly Johnson ground and Dreamland tower I think it was. It could have been Dreamland approach. I don't remember. At any rate. Not only did I fly and still do from time to time, but I immersed my self with its code and capabilities even customizing my cockpits with new avionics suites. My favorite gauge was a TAWS (Terrain Alert Warning System) gauge I had installed in my F-22. While not official to the aircraft, it enabled my to fly in zero visibility at high speed between mountains without even crashing. The gauge pulled all of its terrain data right from the Sim.
I yield back the balance of my space time...
