Apparently I was wrong about not able to find an effective antiviral drug soon. And I am glad about that. The Methodist hospital at the Texas Medical Center now shows that an existing drug, Aviptadil, is highly effective on COVID-19. Aviptadil is a peptide drug, has been around for about 20 years and has originally been used to treat ED. Patients with Critical COVID-19 were seen to have a rapid clearing of classic pneumonitis findings on x-ray, within 4 days. Although very promising, the study is still on-going. Don't start popping Aviptadil just yet!

Trump has surrounded himself with yes-men who find all sorts of ways to reinterpret facts to please their boss.

This must be it. Because there's no way any advisors can and does advise anyone to take death rates with case rate for comparisons and infer from that a job well done!

It just looks like someone thought just give him what he wants, but didn't expect him to use it on a TV interview to show himself up like that!

The world can see what he has done except him. It's like the emperor's new clothes!
 
Swan was nice. I wish I was there at this interview. I would have said,

"You just pointed out that the US only has the most cases because it does the most testing. That means that you believe that other countries have just as many or more cases than the US but they haven't been revealed due to lack of testing, right? If so, that means that you believe that they have more cases than the US, and data says that the US has far more deaths. So that would contradict your claim that the US has the fewest deaths per cases, wouldn't you say?"

Watch him short-circuit.

US economic recovery dead in the water. Why does China allow the US to push it around?

Because US are in a very bad situation. Too many fronts open and no light at the tunnel. Escalating tensions could be disastrous because US are like going through a severe panic attack. They may hurt themselves (already US population hit hard from the pityful handling of pandemic , regarding health, economy and politics ) and others. Better stay 2 steps away and wait till the situation become sober and trump get the f* out of chair of course. It's like Kung Fu. Hands down and waiting. If the opponent attacks, his own momentum will be used against him.
