    Isn't China bigger than the UE or the US?

    China is the most populous nation on the planet, with a population of ~1.4 billion (though India, which is smaller geographically, is not far behind and I suspect will overtake before long). The EU has a total population of about 0.5 billion, and the US a bit over 0.3 billion.

    They just called them like they have always done.

    Never saw any outrage from CNN calling it the Chinese virus.

    again......like i said they did that because there was no official name from the World Health Organization. they are the ones who officially track and help respond to virus outbreaks. I agree there should have been an outrage in calling it the Chinese virus.

    even so everybody is now saying STOP calling it so. the president knows this. it only incites hatred and violence. in the youtube clip, he is now calling a stop to the violence.....i think it is a little too late if you ask me.

    They're not calling it that now though. From what I've seen CNN is now using "coronavirus" or "Covid-19", and not Trump rhetoric.

    Wasn't this Donald Trump's own writing, in one of his recent speeches? The change made presumably to suit his own agenda.

    Both infections and deaths in the US are currently doubling every 3 days (I suspect death figures are more reliable than infection, though both will be underestimated to differing degrees). From the John Hopkins data my estimate is that the US will overtake China for total infections in about 2 days' time and Italy shortly after, unless trends change very quickly.

    Trump cannot be unaware of these figures: he will have been briefed repeatedly. He may be too weak to accept them and face up to the consequences, or he may feel that his interests are better served by protecting the Dow than the lives of American citizens. I don't feel in a position to judge the relative importance of those 2 factors in determining his actions. But he will be aware of the facts, even if he chooses to reject them.

    To talk of relaxing restrictions by Easter is, quite literally, lethally irresponsible.

    Seems I was optimistic: the US is now the country with the most confirmed covid cases.

    Meanwhile you-know-who is still talking about relaxing restrictions soon...

    Perhaps Donald Trump taking a leaf out of Xi Jinping's book. The president for life of the Chinese Communist Party. Foxconn went from making iPhones, to making surgical masks very quickly.

    "After 100 million masks were used in the H1N1 outbreak in 2009, the Obama administration was strongly recommended to replete the masks, but the advice was not heeded. Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Association, said that “our association is unaware of any major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown.” The outbreak “caused a 2- to 3-year backlog orders for the N95 variety,” Bloomberg News noted, adding that “the stockpile distributed about three-quarters of its inventory and didn’t build back the supply.”
