    So it's going to suddenly stop accelerating any minute now. In fact, if you look REAL CLOSE at this curve and squint real hard, you can already see the beginnings of "a steady downstream", whatever kind of an incoherent mess that is supposed to mean:

    That's not fair. It's been established that Half-life is illiterate and can't read a table.
    You mean he can't read as well as, i.e. is not as smart as a table? Okay.
    But please don't tell me all these pretty pictures are to no avail!

    Incubation period. It takes a week of shutdown before you start to see any effects.
    Make that two weeks, with limited test availability and people thinking it's nothing serious for the first few days if cold- like symptoms.

    Numbers I've been told are: an incubation period of 5-14 days, 4-5 days of deterioration before the really sick go to hospital, average death being about 2 weeks from first symptoms. Our "shutdown" was staged and even now hasn't gone as far as some, but on those numbers it might take 3 or more weeks to start to see a change?

    Here's what Republicans are doing to us:

    We have 18% of the world's COVFEFE-19 cases.
    We have 2.2% of those who have recovered from it.

    Tens of thousands of people will die, solely due to misinformation, lies and Half-Truths disseminated by Trump and his minions like our own little liar:

    Note that I said "before you start to see". The incubation period is up to 14 days, not a fixed 14 days.

    Can I ask at what stage are different parts of the USA in terms of response?

    From here I see Trump press conferences and stories about NY and CA, Spring Break in FL and ventilators, but there's no sense of what's happening elsewhere.

    Is every state taking it seriously and ramping up measures?

    Why did you write that? Are you deliberately misrepresenting him because you're trying to get your readers to think that's what he meant, or are you deliberately misrepresenting him because it's fun to be a troll even though you expect your readers not to be taken in by your misrepresentation, or are you unintentionally misrepresenting him because you're semiliterate?

    "The poor are not people" is not an even half-way intelligent gloss for you to place on his words. He claimed, obviously, that the Democrats do not actually do anything to help the poor, but only virtue signal about doing so.

    Regardless of why you wrote that, you now owe Half-Life an abject apology.

    I, for one, am sorry Half-life lives in such a glass house. And his attitude towards the poor is pretty unequivocal.
