Hier is ook van alles te weinig behalve van het virus.

wat is de gedachte achter deze post?

A US Navy hospital ship is nearing its New York City dock

The US Navy Hospital Ship Comfort is expected to soon dock in New York City.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke about the coronavirus pandemic as the ship approached its dock.

The ship is not expected to treat coronavirus patients. Rather it will be used to relocate shore-based patients undergoing treatments that are not coronavirus-related in an effort to help ease the burden on hospitals.

It contains 12 fully-equipped operating rooms, 1,000 hospital beds, radiology services, a medical lab, pharmacy, optometry lab, a CAT-scan and two oxygen producing plants, according to the Navy.

Federal Reserve estimates coronavirus job losses could total 47M; unemployment rate may hit 32%, topping Great Depression peak of 24.9%.

Private Jet companies could get billions in aid from coronavirus bailout

The $2 trillion economic stimulus package gives private-jet companies tax breaks, loans and loan guarantees.

The aid follows a lobbying effort by private-jet companies and general aviation firms to receive a portion of the federal aid money.

Private-jet companies could receive billions of dollars in loans, aid and tax relief from the federal government as part of the $2 trillion coronavirus aid package.

Under the bill, private-jet charter companies and jet-card companies will receive several types of help from the federal government. First, private-jet companies will no longer have to pay a 7.5% tax. The tax, known as Federal Excise Tax, is charged to customers of private-jet charters and jet-card users. The tax won’t be charged for the rest of the year. Jet companies also won’t have to pay any fuel taxes.

In addition, private-jet companies will be eligible to receive funding from the $25 billion in loans and loan guarantees available to the aviation industry. They are also included in the $25 billion in grant payments for the continuation of wage payments to workers

Private-jet airports and smaller airports will also receive more than $100 million in federal funding under the bill.

The aid follows a lobbying effort by private-jet companies and general aviation firms to receive a portion of the federal aid money, arguing that private aviation generates 1.2 million jobs and $77 billion in income.

“On balance, the bill is helpful to general aviation,” said Ed Bolen, president and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association, which represents private-jet companies and owners as well as general aviation companies. “The industry clearly made its voice heard in insuring that the important provisions for general aviation, commercial operators and other small businesses were considered as this legislation was assembled.”

Yet using taxpayer funding to help an industry that caters to the wealthy has also sparked criticism. Before the bill was announced, Dean Baker, senior economist at the liberal-leaning Center for Economic Policy, told CNBC:

“It’s hard to imagine anything worse.

Putting up public money to support an industry that serves the rich would be hard to justify.

It’s absurd.”

Inderdaad, het is absurd

Maar schijnbaar normaal in Trump's world.

En iedereen schijnt het te pikken in de uS.


To landlords who lease to medical professionals:

In other states, we've seen news stories about nurses being thrown out of apartments or denied leases out of fear of exposure.

We haven't yet specifically seen that here, but let me be clear, it will not be tolerated in Illinois.

De governor van Illinois heeft dus informatie, dat in andere staten verpleegsters hun huis uitgezet worden door de huiseigenaren waarvan zij huren.

Omdat zij een gevaar vormen voor de woonomgeving.

Het moet niet gekker worden.

Putin and Trump had another conversation.

Reportedly, it was a long one, discussing #coronavirus and oil prices.

As usual, we find out from the Russians.

According to the Kremlin, Trump initiated the phone call. The call addressed:
coronavirus & "closer interaction between the U.S. & Russia"
oil prices
"some other issues re: bilateral relations"
Trump and Putin "agreed to continue personal contacts

Het Kremlin vermeldt wel dat er gesproken is met Trump.

Maar het Witte Huis doet geen mededeling over het telefoon gesprek

Trump kan het wel vergeten:heeft Poetin teveel dwars gezeten met de Nordstream etc

PS: gas en olie stroom door de leidingen van Rusland naar EU en Turkije en China:)
oja en Poetin heeft de venezulaanse oliebedrijf zojuist opgekocht

Trump said that the US production of ventilators will ramp up sufficiently to supply some other countries, including Italy and Spain. The president has repeatedly marveled at why US hospitals would need thousands of ventilators — which healthcare providers need to help coronavirus patients with severe symptoms breathe.

An article in the New England Journal of Medicine published on Wednesday 25 March categorically concluded that the US does not have enough ventilators to treat patients with Covid-19 in the coming months.

The authors, American public health experts, wrote: ‘There is a broad range of estimates of the number of ventilators we will need to care for U.S. patients with Covid-19, from several hundred thousand to as many as a million. The estimates vary depending on the number, speed, and severity of infections, of course, but even the availability of testing affects the number of ventilators needed.... current estimates of the number of ventilators in the United States range from 60,000 to 160,000, depending on whether those that have only partial functionality are included. The national strategic reserve of ventilators is small and far from sufficient for the projected gap. No matter which estimate we use, there are not enough ventilators for patients with Covid-19 in the upcoming months.”

Ford today announced it will work with GE to make ventilators. And GM announced on Friday that it will start manufacturing ventilators in April on behalf of Ventec Life Systems.
VS koopt flinke lading medische spullen van China
In de strijd tegen het coronavirus heeft de VS een grote lading medische spullen gekocht van China.

Het eerste vrachtvliegtuig is maandag geland in New York, melden Amerikaanse media. Dat zal nog negentien keer plaatsvinden.

De eerste aflevering van de twintig ladingen bevat 130.000 mondkapjes van het type N95, 1,8 miljoen operatiemaskers, 70.000 thermometers en meer dan tien miljoen medische handschoenen.

Het Witte Huis verklaarde dat het om een “speciale samenwerking” gaat.

Amerikaanse media berichten ook dat er kritiek is op president Donald Trump omdat hij medische goederen uit China importeert, terwijl hij eerder covid-19 ‘het Chinese virus’ noemde.

Speciale samenwerking noemt dat nu. Kan je, je nog belachelijker maken als grootste economie van de wereld?
'Covid-19 heeft alle zombie-ideeën weer op de been gebracht'
Je zou de visie van Donald Trumps regering en de rechtse media op het coronavirus zo kunnen samenvatten, schrijft Paul Krugman: “Het is bedrog. En als het geen bedrog is, stelt het toch maar weinig voor. En er iets tegen doen, zou de economie vernietigen. En het is de fout van de Chinezen.”
"Geeft dat een gevoel van déjà vu? Het lijkt inderdaad sterk op de visie van Trump en rechts op de klimaatverandering." (DM)

Meadows Takes Over as White House Chief of Staff

Longtime Trump ally resigned from Congress Monday and becomes the fourth person to serve as the president’s top aide

In an administration that has seen no shortage of drama related to the White House chief of staff, President Trump’s fourth chief is arriving with relatively little fanfare:
Mark Meadows, officially joins the White House Monday, with his resignation as a North Carolina congressman set to take effect at 5 p.m., an aide said.

Mr. Trump fired his first chief of staff, Reince Priebus, in a tweet while both men were aboard Air Force One.
His second chief, John Kelly, on his first day axed the contentious—and short-lived—White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci. Mr. Kelly’s own tenure was marked by constant reports on his imminent ouster, and in December 2018 Mr. Trump abruptly announced his coming departure.
His third chief, Mick Mulvaney, was given only a temporary title—acting chief of staff—that he kept over the course of his 14-month tenure.

CBS News obtained audio of a call Monday between Pres. Trump and rural state governors about coronavirus. After Montana Gov. Steve Bullock discusses difficulty getting testing equipment,

Trump says, "I haven't heard anything about testing being a problem"
