Sloth the stock market guru. As shown by the Dow the market skidded when Cumo made his announcement then buoyed by bargain hunting briefly recovered before plunging. News flash, the market doesn't move with pristine unity or self annointed expert's timeline.

Again, you offer no explanation of why Democrat Quomo couldn't have waited until after the trading day ended before making his announcement. He like you, is more interested in serving the Resistance than the country.

Here is a piece that examines the stats divorced from the pandemic dempanic porn . . .

I found the sections, "On a per-capita basis, we shouldn’t be panicking" and, "COVID-19 is spreading, but probably not accelerating" very interesting.

https://medium.com/six-four-six-nine...9-1b767def5894

And this article gives explanations for Italy's ridiculous death stats . . . Besides a higher median age of patients:
“The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus. On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity - many had two or three,” he says."
