One week, two weeks, three weeks — you’ve got to go with what the situation on the ground is.” If the coronavirus does, in fact, make the timeline, and if this interactive chart from the New York Times has it right, the target date should be stretched well beyond April 12. The Times, with input from epidemiologists, used this visual to show what a quick return to normal could mean in terms of infections — 128 million cases — versus what we could see if we continue social-distancing measures for two months — 14 million cases. “These numbers offer a false precision, for we don’t understand Covid-19 well enough to model it exactly,” the Times wrote. “But they do suggest the point that epidemiologists are making: For all the yearning for a return to normalcy, that is risky so long as a virus is raging and we are unprotected.” On epidemiologist quoted in the story, Larry Brilliant of the Ending Pandemics organization, warned that Trump’s Easter timeline could have disastrous implications. “I think history would judge it an error of epic proportions,” he said. The number of coronavirus deaths in the U.S. surpassed 1,000 Wednesday night, according to Johns Hopkins University. New York City and state remains the hardest hit region of the country with about 30,000 cases and 300 fatalities. The latest tally shows that the total number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. rose another 14,000 to more than 69,000. Meanwhile, the latest stat from the jobs front clearly shows the huge impact coronavirus is having on the U.S. economy. The number of Americans who applied for unemployment benefits last week rocketed to a record 3.28 million as large parts of the U.S. economy shut down and companies laid off scores of workers to deal with the pandemic. The stock market, however, has been on the mend in a big way this week, with another strong day of gains on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +6.37% closed up 1,352 points, while both the S&P 500 index SPX, +6.24% and tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite COMP, +5.59% ended the session firmly higher, as well.

Give it a rest already! He says he “hopes” after talking with Fauci and other experts but leave it to a bunch of morons to act like Easter is a firm date! There’s nothing wrong with trying to be positive at a very negative time. I forgot though the media just looks for negatives. Clown

Restless Trump Hopes Country Can Go Back to Normal by Easter — as Health Experts Urge CautionTrump told Fox News on Tuesday: 'I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter,' which is April 12 I bet Trump is trying to figure out how he could sneak out of the Whitehouse - get to one of his golf courses.....
